Have you seen the challenge Kim Whitten is doing? It's the 52 Week Project. Every week you take a photo. The object of the photo remains the same. It can be you, your child, your dog, even go for monochromatic looks like B (you have to read her site). I'm working on 52 Weeks of my husband, Jimmy. What's really wonderful is that B gives you help on your photograph and Kim helps with photography, prompts, and inspiration. Her site is 52 Week Project. I hope you join in with me.

I finally finished my mini-book for One Little Word. I'm not totally comfortable creating mini-books so it takes me a bit to get going and finish. But there is a personal feeling of accomplishment when I do finished.
Here's my One Little Word book for 2011: (with Things I learned through mistakes)
when planning a collage of stamped images lay it out first!
the thicker the crackle paint and more prominent the crackle
silhouettes are totally awesome
simple is sometimes better when you want to focus on your photos
alcohol ink, distress ink, archival ink, and paint are very cool together
a little hardware just adds something to your project
my favorite...i learned to fade one color into another for a cool effect...distress inks from Tim Holtz, spiced marmalade and yellow mustard (along with my vintage photo and walnut stain).
laying out the collage of stamps does work better! LOL
stamp all your images, both front and back, before adding texture. you'll get a better image
add a pop of color, archival crimson, to draw your eye to a focal point
I added antique lace that my mother gave me and I love my mini-book!
