One Little Word 2016 | Shine March and April Catch-up and Check-in!

Hi guys, I decided to divert from my usual Tuesday Project Life videos today so I could spend a little time in my One Little Word project. I am participating in Ali Edwards' One Little Word class this year and have chosen the word Shine. The goal and purpose of the class and of choosing a word for the year is to choose a word that speaks to me and that helps direct and add meaning to my year. Here is a look at my thought processes and album content in response to the prompts for March and April:

So you might remember back in March the prompt was to create a vision board using magazine images. The idea was to simply choose images and colors and texts that speak to you and that reflect your word, simply what you like. For March in my album I chose to include a photo of my vision board, along with a few reflections. I created a divider from this heart transparency that is from Maggie Holmes' Shine collection. The month tab is Studio Calico, and the acrylic word is from Gossamer Blue.

I included this photo on this layout simply because of the way the sun was shining into the car and onto my hair that day. I added a chipboard embellishment that is from Ali Edwards' Cheer Story Kit.

On the back of this month's layout I added a photo from the beach the day my son got hurt. I wrote some of my reflections from that event, particularly how I saw myself for the first time being the calm and focused one. I also painted a wash background and printed this quote from Pinterest.

For the month of April I chose a white stripe transparency from WeRMemory Keepers laying on its side. The prompt for April was to write questions pertaining to your word and process your word and how it evidences itself in your life. I used filler and journaling cards from the Modern Edition Core Kit to copy my notes down, and then I slid them into the pockets.

The back of this month is several more of my journaling cards and I also realized that the quote card is not the one I originally planned to use, but I think I will keep this one as it is because it still fits.

That is all for this day's inspiration. I hope you have enjoyed hearing some of my One Little Word experiences and how I am working through that word in my life! See you back here tomorrow for Disney!

One Little Word | Creating a Vision Board

So here it is almost the very end of March, and I have finally completed the March prompt in the One Little Word class for 2016. This class is being taught and hosted by Ali Edwards, and for March the prompt given was to create a vision board. The goal with the vision board is to select miscellaneous images and create a collage. If the images have to do with your word that is awesome, and if not, that is ok too. Here is my process video:

Here is a look at how the vision board turned out:

There are quite a few elements that reflect me and my personality. I love make-up and I love color samples, so I was drawn to the samples and the pops of color.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of coral color I chose for the board, and really happy about that. It is one of the colors I use for my brand, along with turquoise. Those two colors make me very happy.

I love the "inspiration is everywhere" and I added my word with Studio Calico chipboard alphas that are spray painted gold.

One final detail is that I painted the edge with gesso once everything was glued down. This was to unify all the elements and to define the edge of the canvas. So, now on to April!

See you soon,

One Little Word 2016 Making Your Word Visible

Hi there friends! Today I am working with my One Little Word Project and I am also transitioning into another series I want to create, called Design Time! Don't worry, One Little Word is alive and strong and I will keep going with that and will keep showing you my progress with that. I wanted to create some home decor that would remind me of my word throughout the day, so I decided to make a word banner. Here is my process video showing how this banner came together!

Alright, so I basically just have video to show you today, and tomorrow I have a quick video showing how I put my banner up to decorate the mantle, and I will show more (gorgeous!!) photos then. So be sure to check back tomorrow to see how it goes up, ok?

See you soon,
