Welcome to the final prompt in our 7-day Pieces Of The Past series. Today's prompt is "looking back I see."
I loved ending this series with the "looking back I see" - it felt like a really nice way to collect a bunch of thoughts/feelings that came up for me while working on this project this past week.
Here's a video of my process:
Here's a look at the finished prompt in my notebook:
For this last prompt I ended up cutting two pages in the notebook to create homes for my journaling between my full photo background pages. I cropped and printed my photo to 8.5 inches wide x 8.25 inches tall and cut it in half before adhering it to the notebook pages. I used the "looking back" messy circle stamp and Scattered Straw ink to create the pattern and added a chipboard from the upcoming May 2022 Stories By The Month kit on top.
The sticker tabs added along the top of my journaling pages are also from the upcoming May 2022 Stories By The Month kit.
I really loved this prompt invitation to collect thoughts + feelings from looking back this past week. Even if you didn't have photos to look back on you can collect words from the memories + thoughts + feelings that came to you while deciding on the stories to tell in this project.
Before printing my journaling I did a test print to make sure I would have enough space for the "looking back I see" stamp.
After responding to the "looking back I see" invitation I also added in a bit of thoughts related to this project generally. It felt like a nice way to sum up my experience with the project.
Thank you so much for following along this week whether your journaled, crafted, or simply reflected on the stories from your own past.
We'll be back later this year with a new prompt series for Pieces Of Play.
