One Little Word: January and February

Loving the process of making my word visible this year by participating in Ali Edward’s One Little Word Class.  Here’s a peak at January:

One of the writing prompts included finding a quote reflective of your word.  I had a hard time choosing just one so I created a full page of “Light” quotes.  In between several blocks of text, I scattered various sizes of silver, aqua, and vellum stars.

Action cards for February are prepped and awaiting my text for specific measurable goals.  For the monthly reflections layout, I used pieces of a transparency printed with patterned clouds in 3 of the squares.

In the process of preparing these pages, I realized that I wanted to create something that captured the word GROW for the prior year.  I wasn’t able to keep up with any of the monthly prompts in terms of creatively documenting our time.  To honor our big year, I created these pages:

OLW Grow 2013

I enclosed my word within a text frame documenting all the ways we were constantly required to GROW.  Thicker number letters, a delicate leaf die-cut, and flower punches embellished the layout.

On the backside, I created a text block of song lyrics that were particularly meaningful to me.  A few of my favorite pictures, polka dot washi tape, and a simple journaling card completed the look.  (Note: I used the weld function on my silhouette to make the “Grow” text appear more scripted.)

As February draws to a close, I’m really excited to see what March and the rest of the year brings!
