Project 365 is big with the start of the new year. I have seen lots of posts on blogs, Facebook and twopeasinabucket. It seems like everyone is doing it! I did Project 365 in 2009 and really enjoyed the project. But toward the end of the year, finding new ideas for photos sometimes was difficult.
I don't have small children so there was not a lot of playtime, school
and sports photos to fill up my pages.
But I loved photographing the every day. The simple things in life
we can easily overlook and forget.
While on Two Peas the other day I came across the 12-of-12 project. Take 12 photos on the
twelfth of each month, for all of Twenty Twelve.
I figured I could easily do that!
So on Thursday the twelfth I got out my camera in the morning and started photographing. I took three photos in the morning, three at noon, three in the afternoon and three in the evening. Easy peasy!
I was so excited to get this project underway, I uploaded the photos the next day to pick up while running errands on Friday the 13th.
Since I wanted smaller photos to be able to put all 12 on a two page layout, I made a collage in Picasa, two per 4x6 print, so I could scrap 12 3x4 or 4x3 photos and save on processing. I also added the numbers 1-12 to each photo in Picasa, so I could match my journaling to each photo.
Last night I scrapped my first 12-of-12 layout for January.
I used some old Basic Gray papers for the January layout. I have a big stash of Basic Grey, so I may use Basic Grey for all 12 layouts.
Here is my first layout. I hope to remember to post each layout as I complete them each month, ending the photo project on 12-12-12.
I already will have a change in my house, as I discovered a crack in the mug I took my first photo of for the project.
