Learn Something New Every Day 2011: Part 1


I did actually take part in LSNED this September! But I shared my daily 'lessons' on Twitter rather than here on my blog. I found it an interesting way to approach the class, but I missed putting together a paper project, so when I got to the end of the month I decided to make one and add my tweets to it. I used some rather lovely papers from Gotta Craft, cut into cards measuring 3 inches by 4, and kept the layout of each simple - I'd originally envisaged elaborate embellishments, miniature canvases of pretty and beautiful, but I quickly abandoned 'complicated' in favour of 'quick'!

Here are the cover and title page:


(You can click on any photo to enlarge it and better read the journaling!)

And here are the first 9 days of September:




More pages will follow :)

What a great idea to record your tweets Mel. I really like the papers (of course, with all those yellows!) and your design is simple but elegant. This will be such a fun mini-album to look back through.

Beautiful way to condense a month's worth of memories! 140 characters isn't many is it?

Lynn said...

Love these and that you have made a memory of your tweets!

Taking part in LSNED on Twitter was a brilliant idea, but I'm very pleased to see a paper project come out of it :o) I just love those papers from Sandra's beautiful kit and your mini book is gorgeous.

I'm loving the yellow and grey (but of course you knew that already)! And you have got me thinking - I'm not into Twitter, but I could be interested in recording Christmas in 140 characters. That would be a challenge!

As I was watching you put this together, I just knew it was going to look fantastic. I'm just glad that I could could contribute - in a small way - by assisting with the adhesive x
