Ha! Now that I have your attention… :)
This change of direction…it’s not exactly what you may think.
Y’all know I’m travelers notebook kind-of gal. And I love seeing what other people do in theirs. One thing I have yet to try is going the other way, so that your page is wide, rather than tall.
Check out what our lovely friend, Miss Marcy has done.
I try really hard to let my notebook just be what it wants to be. I’ve been in the “scrapbooking” world for a long time now and it’s important to me to keep it so that I love documenting. For me this has meant letting the way I document change and grow with my family. For me, right now, this means simple, meaningful and easy.
Case, in point. For this spread I really just had this little photo my daughter took that I wanted to remember. I didn’t feel the need to get crazy creative and create this magnificent spread in my notebook. In fact I didn’t feel like making a spread at all. I just wanted to document it! A bit of patterned paper and a sprinkling of stamps. That’s all I need.
So what will end up on the next page? No idea. Maybe another photo. Maybe a to-do list. I don’t know. All I know is that for me, at this point in my creative journey, it’s just important that I remember these moments.
That’s kind of a fun way to do your documenting, eh? Kind of mix things up? While I really like when people do it, I think the perfectionist in me can’t turn my own book to do it. ;)
I think Marcy’s page is gorgeous like this though. It really works. And I love her completely organic way of documenting. Just letting it all go with the flow. Not forcing a second page. Whatever happens, happens.
So what about you? Have you changed directions…in any format?
