Merrells - Project 12 (February)

Project 12 hosted by Mary C Anderson at 'Soul Scrappers'

I’m sure that many of you have heard of Project 365. As a scrapbooker and someone who loves to take photos I thought that Project 365 would be just the thing for me. I took a photo each day for the first two weeks and even scrapbooked most of them. As the days went by I found that keeping up with this project was just too much for me. I love the idea of journaling my life through photos and scrapping them but I found that I did not have time enough to do it daily. So much for my Project 365 journey . I really did give it my best shot though.
Recently, I read about some scrappers doing this project once a month. I’m not sure if it is called Project 12 but it sounds good to me.
Here is what you do.
*1*. Take one or more photos of people, places or things that you do or see in your everyday life.
*2*. Do this once a month .
*3*. Using your photo/photos make a scrap page and add your journaling.
At the end of the year you will have 12 scrap pages to place in a book that documents your everyday life................................ by Mary


I decided to do my 'Project 12' pages in an art journal, I'm going to use it to try out different mixed media techniques using cloth, paint, stamps, sewing, pastels etc......

This is what the journaling says:

My partner Hasan bought me a pair of Merrill footwear for work, as I am on my feet all day they are the best shoes for comfort and support!
My feet love my Merrells!

I made my own background paper using a technique called 'Ghosting', if you look towards the bottom left hand corner you can see the 'ghosting affect' with the writting lifting up through the page.

I am going to try this technique out on other pages.


Here is a close up of the Ghosting technique,

You can see it really well at the bottom of the page
