Find Your Voice: Week 1

 

I am so happy to be featured as a contributor to the Find Your Voice Free Summer Storytelling Workshop created by Kristen at rukristen.com. I’m also happy to be following along and ‘doing’ the workshop myself. Each week, I plan to share my Find Your Voice projects right here, and I’d be thrilled if you shared yours, too 🙂

It’s only been a few days and already I’m loving this workshop. Lesson one is all about creating a project that represents you at the beginning of your storytelling journey. To do this, I made a simple book by stitching a few pieces of card stock together. I added a card from the Jade Project Life kit to the front, and plan to add the Find Your Voice stamp to the bottom right corner (once it comes in – I ordered it a bit late. woops).FYVTitle

For the title page, I used alphabet stamps and my Amy Tangerine date stamp.FYVContents

I used a 4 x 6 Jade Project Life Card for the table of contents – but I’m waiting until the book is complete to fill it out.

Finally, for the inner pages, I stamped headings using the alphabet stamps and the June stamp add on for Studio Calico by Elise Cripe. Underneath the headings I transferred my answers from the lesson 1 worksheet. FYVInsidePages

I wasn’t sure how much I was going to like documenting the workshop like this when I started, but after these first few pages I’m warming up to it. I like that the book I created is on the smaller side: only 5×6.5 inches; and I’m a fan of the cohesiveness of it all. Limiting my selection of stamps, filler cards, and colors has really tied it all together. I must say, the Jade kit is not one of my favorites to use for project life – it just doesn’t fit my style there. Yet, surprisingly enough, I’m absolutely loving it here.

Are you participating in the Find Your Voice Workshop? If so, I’d love for you to link to your weekly work either in the official link-up over here, or in the comments below. I look forward to seeing what everyone else came up with this week 🙂 Cheers & Happy Storytelling!

    This is really great inspiration. I never thought to use that Jade card as a table of contents! And I really love how you combined the stamps and journaling on your pages. I look forward to seeing more!
