One Little Word is not a project I’d ever really given too much thought to until recently. I knew of it, and found it to be fantastic and interesting idea, but I knew it’d never be a class I’d participate in myself. Much like when I was at school, I find following classes, even ones you can change up to be frustrating. It’s nothing to do with the classes themselves, which are always excellent, but rather my inability to learn in this way. It’s something I should probably work on!
In these first few weeks of the new year, I thought a lot about the changes I wanted to make in my life. Since moving house this past summer I’ve become a bit of a hermit, and hidden away from social interaction. The reasons behind that aren’t important, but what is important is that I don’t want that to be the case in 2017.
I decided to focus on one word this year that would help me change that – ‘Reconnect’. I want to focus on building my social connections up again, and ‘reintegrate myself in to society’ as it were.
Working with the Felicity Jane “Sophie” Kit, I picked a globe as my layout focal point, to visualise the connections I want to focus on, both close to home, as well as those who live farther away from me.
I kept the embellishments light, as is my style, and focused on nature, using flowers as well as birds from Pinkfresh Studio and Freckled Fawn.
