Week 1 of the class has been geared around drawing togther the photos and memorabilia I want to scrap [or I guess that should be 'anti-scrap'] over the following weeks. While doing this I've been trying to think of an over-all theme to focus on and the best I can come up with is 'things I've never scrapped before' ... and even that's going to be tricky.
Over the last few years I've scrapped steadily [and sometimes manically] and I always like to think of new topics to cover so, really, there's very few areas of my life I haven't touched upon at some point in my scrapbooking. Equally, some of the events, photos, memories that remain un-scrapped, remain un-scrapped for good reasons. I know I share a lot .... but there's still a few things I keep to myself.
So, I've been thinking that maybe that could be my theme 'Some of the Things People Might Not Know About Me'. Notice how that's subtley different from: 'All of the Things People Might Not Know About Me'!
Then again, I may not stick to any theme at all. I might approach the whole thing with a random, willy nilly, gung-ho approach.... does that sound like a suitably 'Anti-scrapbook' attitude to have?
Whatever happens I can assure you of one thing - I will, without a shadow of a doubt, at some point over the next four weeks manage to get paint on at least one inappropriate, unintended surface / item of clothing.
But then, you knew that about me already, didn't you?
