Another year, another set of prompts from the One Little Word class. I am super excited to work with my new word this year. I'm looking forward to all the changes this journey will bring and can't wait to see all the progress I make.
I use again a 5x7 mini album to document the prompts each month. This time I use one of jamaica makes clear albums (which will be available today in her shop). I really really love the see through effect. Especially because my word is "light".
At the beginning of the year we always get invited to take a photo of ourselves. Although I don't take that many photos of me alone smiling at the camera I really appreciate this prompt because it's interesting to look back and see how I changed over the years.
On the right you can see the quote I picked for this year. "Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light" by Yogi Bhajan. I know nothing about him but this quote resonates with me.
I bought the 2016 one little word mini kit to get that stamp set. I like that I can easily add some color to my spreads this way. And that stamp set will be used each and every year. Below the quote (you almost can't see it) I added a clear star I had in my stash.
The first month is always a little bit intense word wise. You set your intentions and write about your expectations. For the right side I used the text from this blog post and printed it out.
On this page you can see that I use a combination of German and English in my album. I don't really care about the fact, that it's not the same language on each and every page. Some things can be said better in English, some in German.
