Today I am sharing the projects I created for the class, Hello Story 3, by Ali Edwards. I have taken Hello Story and Hello Story 2, already, a 12-week and 3-week class, respectively, and this is another 3-week class. We have finished week 1, which was all about telling our stories using CUT PAPER techniques.
For this first page, I used this art piece that I found on Pinterest as my inspiration. Using digital products by Humble & Create, a scrapbooking digital designer that I admire, I 're-created- the art piece using digital 'CUT PAPER' to tell my story. No photo necessary because the 'cut' paper is the design focal point. Then, I told the story of what I am currently listening to, what sounds are on repeat, and what songs are my current playlist. A story such as this could easily be told monthly, or in seasons, or yearly in order to capture the whole picture.
For this page, I used this page as my inspiration piece and told the story of what needs to be all in my head, rather what is in my head. Those things I am telling myself, again and again, until it is ALLIN MY HEAD. I replicated paper weaving which we learned from the Hello Story 3 classroom, digitally, and I used the digital .png letters Ali provided in the digital downloads section of the class. Here is a good time to mention: Every single solitary class I have taken by Ali Edwards, and I have taken almost every one of her classes, are worth every single penny I spend. She puts so much into every session, every class, every project and she just keeps hitting them outside of the park. They are phenomenal! The inspiration for telling our stories is beyond imaginable.
For my third project I went big title, big lettering to tell my story about God's mercies being new every morning and paired it with one of my many, many, many sunrise photos that I captured from the 6th floor of the control tower where I work. The inspiration was strictly from the big lettering I'd seen in Ali's projects, and others taking the class who went big with letter cutting. I am super thrilled with how 'outside of the box' I went with all of these projects. I can see how much fun they'd be to create by hand, rather than digitally. But, I love how they turned out, digitally, too.
