Just to give you some idea of how I plan to approach this project, I am going to share my cover with you. I used a piece of 6x6 clear acrylic and decorated it with papers from the American Crafts Abode Collection. I will be using this line of papers and embellishments throughout my book to keep a consistent look to it. You certainly do not have to use the same approach. This just helps me make decisions easier. I will be binding my book with my Bind It All at the end so I have already punched the holes.
So, your first prompt is "Just one thing." Tell me about something in your home that has a special meaning to it or is very important to you and why. I took a trip around my house and gathered up a few things that have stories and took pictures of them. Here are a few of them.
This is my rocking chair. Curtis gave it to me for my 18th birthday and I still have it.
I looked at these things plus a few others and decided to use the chair. I took more pictures of it and opted to go with a close up of the arm so you can see the wear on it that many years of loving touches have given it. Here is my finished page.
If you click on the picture, it will get big enough for you to read the journaling. Now, it is your turn. Find something special in your home and tell us the story.
