The Fun Extras - Set Eleven
First Posted 1/1/2009. It is fun to see this again as a look back in time at how Project 365 began in the digital scrapbooking world. Do you still do Project 365? Do you have any new resources to link us up with? Do you still put your layouts on templates?
I'm curious how Project 365 has changed over the years. Is it still as strong for digital scrapbookers? Where do you get your prompts?
It seems there is a great storm in the digiland to join the Project 365 by Creating Keepsake. This project had been circulating years ago. And only now that digiland had the idea of making it into a project.
Anyone going to do it? I do not think I want to commit to anything (see my new years resolution!), but it sure looks like a great !
Understanding the concept -- a picture every day to look at your life.
Here is a post on PhotoJoJo where it all began. "When Taylor McKnight started taking a photo a day on January 1st, 2004, he never imagined the project would not only serve as a way to remember a year, but also help him understand what was important to him in his life."
I am assuming that this can also be done digitally or in any other way. You can find templates available for Project 365 in digital format.
Many are starting a new blog. I can see this making a great Shutterfly book rather than purchasing the traditional scrapbooking kit they offer.
There is a group of digi-scrappers gathering at Flicker.
Need inspiration? How about some photo prompts?
OH, and now we have a new acronym. Isn't it hard to keep up with all of those acronyms in the digi-world? Now we have "PAD"....go ahead...add it to your vocabulary!
However, this year with the CK challenge, they are just encouraging photographing your daily life.
Oh, and you could also do the daily mugshot as I have started. It is much easier.
I have sort of wanted to do this each year, but could never commit. Because it is such a large commitment, Project 52 began for 52 photos, one a week, in a year.
One year I did the 12 on 12, to take 12 photos the 12th of every month and I actually did it! I uploaded my images to a Flickr album and put the journaling in the description. Some day I am going to be able to afford to put that in the hard bound book I always intended to do.
