For 2018, Kristin and the Awesome Ladies are inviting us to create our Book of Me. Each month there will be content added to the website as well as galleries and prompts. You can check it out here.
For the longest time, I wasn’t sure what type of book I would use for mine. Did I want an art journal or a photo album? A Traveller’s Notebook or an altered book? I was stumped until I remembered this book that my friend Molly gave to me:
It’s an archeology textbook from the 1980s. the size is just right, 5 x 7 more or less. The pages are nice and sturdy. I’ll have to take a couple out (maybe) but we’ll see how it goes.
I used a photo that was an outtake from my 21 Secrets self-portrait workshop. It’s printed on vellum and I love that you can see the title of the book through it.
I’ve got lots to say here. 2017 was a year of growth and transition and learning A LOT about what I want and need and what I am willing to accept. So I am happy to have a place for it all in 2018.
I hope you’ll join us and document your stories!
