Reasons to Take a Photo Walk

I’m currently taking Grammar Free Journaling from Angie Lucas c/o Big Picture Classes, and I’m loving the class so far. Journaling is not one of my weaknesses (I was a writer way before I was a scrapbooker), but CONCISE journaling is not my strong suit. I’m loving that this class is full of techniques that I can fit into small spaces meaningfully.

I also love the perspective shift I’ve had for events I’ve had trouble journaling. I didn’t know quite what to say about Jake’s Rose Garden Photo Walk, one of the few things from 2012 I’d like to document that I hadn’t gotten around to yet. (Project Life is so thorough!) I felt like I had two options: copy / paste his blog post, or resort to just writing “Look! Pretty Roses!” and let that be it. Even though I’m a lister, I didn’t think about taking the stress out of paragraph-style journaling by listing Jake’s sentences. Love the technique, love the resulting layout. So looking forward to more of this class.

Has tricky journaling ever held you back from documenting something? Consider this your challenge to change perspectives and go document it anyway!
