H is for How

In our Living Your Word of the Year group we are using a fortnightly (bi-weekly) A-Z challenge throughout the year to help us focus on our word and live it out.

Because of the way I have made my journal it's a case of going with the flow of what background the pages have when I turn to them.

Valerie, Mary & I have a conference call each month when we discuss our Living Your Word group and ideas for questions and activities.  We decided that we would each take the word How for H.  Valerie has written a wonderful post on How?  Do click on the link to go and read it.

I thought I had taken a photo before I started working on the page - but obviously not!  Anyway I'm sure you can tell what it looked like.

Not only am I trying to use my washi tape, I'm also trying to use up my scrapbooking stash.  I wanted large letters but in this set I had already used the W.  I altered the M to make it fit! I drew round the letters with an orange pen to help highlight the letters.

I loved the questions that Valerie asked but haven't had time to think about them let alone answer them.  I was away for 2 weeks and when I got back I had a workshop to attend, a hospital appointment and two days of stewarding an exhibition.

So I decided I would take Valerie's questions and stick them into my journal.  This way I can keep coming back to them - and you never know I might answer them at some point.  It would be really good to do so.

I finished off by drawing round the paper strips with different colour pens.

One of the questions Valerie asked was: 'What do I believe?'   Here's a video that tells you some of the things I believe.

Thank you for joining me today.

Join Our Inspirational Facebook Group: Living Your Word of the Year
Join Mary Brack, Valerie Sjodin and I in our Facebook group where we are giving participants the opportunity to live out an A-Z of their own word throughout 2019.  Mary explains what we are doing in her blog post.  We don't like a lot of rules, so we will have suggestions and options to spark creativity, and to help in recording and exploring our word’s meaning in visual and fun ways. We will each blog about our experiences and our art.
