Hi! It's Sue Althouse here today, with an idea for looking around and creating a layout based on your surroundings. This particular idea is not original with me, but came from an online prompt I followed several years ago. It's quite simple, really:
1. choose a day, any day
2. take one picture every hour, for 12 hours
3. make a layout
This was a typical fall day for me two years ago. I'm ready to follow this prompt again since we've moved and my routine now looks very different. But I love looking back and remembering. Design Note: the photo strip format works beautifully for a page like this one. My photos are 2x2 and mounted on white cardstock. I have a strip for morning, afternoon and evening. An easy and meaningful page!
I even persuaded my husband to get in on the act. He willingly took his camera to work on the same day and gave me these twelve photos. Our layouts sit across from one another in an album. Same design, but a more masculine flavor to this page. To say they are favorites would be a huge understatement.
There you have it. How much fun would a project like this be for you and your family? Even after only two years, it is easy to forget a daily life that seemed very routine at the time. So I encourage you to look around, take some photos and make a 12-hour layout!
