OK, this one will take some thinking, but I promise it will be worth it. Usually I’ll journal in a block or around the photo. That’s a great way to do it, but it can become a bit stale if you do it every time. The challenge this week: journal about anything you want, but you have use the journaling as a major design element of your page.
We’ve got a few examples, and will add more as we create more, but you can interpret this in numerous ways–it will be fun to see what everyone comes up with. Please post a comment when you are finished, don’t forget to add a link so we can praise your work. We love seeing what you come up with! And please feel free to share this site with your friends. The more the merrier!
Heather’s used her journaling to create a strong visual line from top to bottom, with a fun little jag around the picture. See how her fancy handwriting almost mimics the circles in the paper she used. If you didn’t look closely, you may not even notice the journaling. Cool, huh? You don’t have to use your handwriting, fonts work great too!
Another by Heather shows how you can make your journaling become part of your title–too much fun! I like how the three blocks of pictures and paper flows down into the title and the journaling doesn’t stop that flow. It’s also a great example of how journaling doesn’t have to be long to tell the story.
My first example uses the journaling as the main body of the page. I took a comment my son said and made it the focus:
In my other example, I also used the journaling as a line, like Heather, but mine acts like a box around the page:
For another example by me, copy and paste the link, can you tell I’m eating up this challenge :
