Handwrite Your Story. Project Life: March 9th - 15th

rukristin Project Life Full Week

Here is my most recent Project Life spread (originally appeared on the Persnickety Prints blog). I wanted to take a minute to talk about how easy this spread came together because of the willingness I put into handwriting my story.

For me, Project Life is a narrative style of scrapbooking, its about documenting the everyday moments -- the right now stuff.  I love telling the stories but I don't like being bogged down with perfecting every detail. Nothing in my life is perfect and I'm okay with documenting it just like that.

Here are a couple more photos of the photos + handwriting approach I've been taking for the past few weeks. All of the writing was done using Sakura Microperm pens -- these have been my go to pens since I picked one up at CHA this January -- they're permanent (no smudging on photos) and have a really great tip for precision writing.
