Self Portrait and Start to Finish: OLW

The first two weeks of February apparently were filled with purple wearing. I swear I didn’t plan to have both week’s self portraits of me wearing purple. Oh well! :)

February is always my favorite month. It’s a short month. I get to celebrate Valentine’s with my husband. My new college class started up at the community college so I’m teaching two nights a week again. It’s my BIRTHDAY! Just a great month.

Well, I’ve also been so busy creating scrapbook pages and loving every minute of it. As part of my 2012 year, I am participating in Ali Edward’s One Little Word. This year I really wanted to make it a part of my life and that is why I have been featuring it on my blog at the first of each month (January, February}. Well, as a part of that I wanted to create a layout to document what the word means to me and what I plan to do with it over the course of the year.

On the Kraft background of this layout, I got busy with my paints. I first painted a square and rectangle in brown. I didn’t like that so I painted over it in white and then did some white splatter as well. LOVED that!

Next was grabbing some random scraps from my stash to enhance the various parts of the layout. I used papers from Jillibean Soup {dots and plaid}, My Minds Eye {floral and damask}, Lily Bee Design {photo mat} and Echo Park {journaling spot}. I totally thought that these pictures of my new hair-do by one of my students demonstrated me being “open” to new things.

Check back on the first where I go over what all has happened in February to show how Open I have been. :)

    Good for you for taking self-portraits! I think that is something a lot of us neglect to do. That and scrapbook about ourselves!
    p.s. Happy late birthday!
