So I finished week 1 assignments in the Design Your Life class while week 2 was already waiting in the online classroom! I am so happy with my creations! All sketches and assignments are from Cathy Zielske - the SB guru who's teaching the class.


Part 1 of the assignment was to create a symmetrically balanced design that had equal weight on either side of the line of symmetry. Using an enlarged picture was also a requirement and I was happy to use my new favourite picture!!


Then we stepped it up and in Part 2 of the assignment created a 2 page symmetrical layout. These pictures are some of the autumn ones I've been taking lately. (This picture looks wonky because I had to prop the pages so I could photograph them.)



This was the Real Life Color challenge - use blue, brown, orange and yellow. Cathy's suggestion was to use a letter format for journalling so I wrote this for Silas. I think this is my favourite of the three - and also the one that I had to work hardest on to find the right combination of papers. Thanks to Heather for the beautiful picture of her son!
