Fun Personal Projects or Writers: Journal a Scrapbook

 Not always, but often, freelancers enjoy other creative outlets. Today I want to introduce you to the concept of journaling a scrapbook. I love to journal, and I love to scrapbook, so my scrapbook pages always have journaling cards.

You do not have to do anything special. Simply attach a photo and a journaling card to your page, and write about what is happening in the picture.

  • Who is in the photo?
  • How old are they?
  • When was the photograph taken?
  • Where was it taken?
  • What was happening?
  • Why were you there?
  • What were your feelings?

Simple. You can add embellishments such as stickers. You can have more than one photograph and journaling block per page. You can even fancy it all up with other scrapbooking supplies.

Take a month to finish this project, working on it in your spare time. Then, if you are so moved, let us see pictures of your finished project.

Have fun! Who knows, maybe you will aqcuire a new creative outlet.
