Project - All About Me: The Bright Side

At first glance, the self-portrait layout seems simple: just include a photo of yourself, and maybe the word “me.” In actuality, the self-portrait layout offers an opportunity to look beyond the photo and into the self, truly. The journaling is key. There only so many poses one can have in a photo, but there are endless possibilities for talking about the person in that photo.

In this layout, I focused on journaling my outlook. The sunlight in the photo made me think of the idea of “the bright side,” and I was suddenly reminded of the personality quizzes I'd take back when I was a teenager – “Are You an Optimist or a Pessimist?” I decided to focus the journaling on the answer to that very question.

Many of elements on the page reinforce the page concept, including the wood veneer sun and clouds from Studio Calico, the positive sign, the polka dot “bright spot” patterned paper, the inked word “bright” in the title, and the sunny background paper. I also worked in a bunch of overlays and transparency frames, under which I added punched hearts and circles as well as die-cut accents and more patterns, and over which I added stitching.

Thanks for looking!
