Isn't it sad how we don't print our pictures anymore? I've seen quite a bit about this in the news lately, because it's a big trend, and for some good reasons. We don't have to print all our photos in order to view them and still enjoy them. Printers, ink, and paper is more expensive than ever. And now, with digital cameras, we take hundreds and hundreds of pictures--so it really can take some time to sort through it all and make decisions!
Still, it's always worth it to get them printed out--especially the ones you really like. Frame your photos--scrapbook them--Lifebook them--and art journal them. I just printed out a bunch from some Little Theatre shows I had been in, and I am ashamed to say, I had not printed them out before this! I had done everything else with them: Facebook, Instagram, computer backgrounds, but no hard copies. I knew I needed to do some fun things with these pics from shows! One of my recent favorites was playing a wife in The King and I, so, of course, I had to do an art journal page with one of my favorite snapshots backstage! I did some journaling right on the page, and then I put in a tag that also has some journaling on the back of it. Simple. Special. And it reminds me of one of the most ornate, beautiful places in our city--our Little Theatre.
Eat, Write, Dream, and Stitch in your art journal.
