Michelle here with a wonderful new step by step process video from Cheryl.
I am currently undergoing the arduous procedure more commonly known as “Project Life” where you shoot and journal every day life. I am already “cheating” by journaling only 2 days a week (if that). What I really love about Project Life or Project 365, a similar 1 photo a day version, is how it forces me to pay attention to every day details.
Cheryl has taken the much more HUMANE approach by documenting 52 walks she will take this year- one for every week.
Here are a couple of images from week 5 and 6:
Image from week 5. I like the more abstract nature of Cheryl's photos.
This photo is stunning. I. can't. stop. looking! I actually started walking in my neighborhood after I read Cheryl's post about 52 walks on her personal blog.
Now a brief pause while we check in with Cheryl as she makes the binder cover for this project:
And a quickie shot of one of the pages she recently worked on. She used stamps from Sassafras Lass and items from the Blue Streak mixed media color kit.
Please excuse the admittedly imperfect lighting. Cheryl was very gracious to provide this as she was literally on her way out the door for a week long trip to Dublin. But I'm not jealous! (much)
