Jill's class, which is really a mini, self-paced workshop, consists of 60 pages of material which she has divided into three chapters. Each chapter also includes a video that shows key concepts of the class in action. It's a journaling class, but it's also a class on how to make pages more meaningful ... or, as Jill puts it, how to make pages that feel authentic.
I used to journal quite a bit on my layouts and the story behind the photo was often the focal point of my whole page. As I began to experiment with new techniques and trends I eventually shifted away from paragraphs of journaling and instead made layouts with little or no journaling, allowing the photos to speak for themselves. Recently, though, I've missed seeing my thoughts on my pages. I'd like to get back to including more writing in my scrapbooks. I doubt I'll journal on every single page the way I used to, but I'm hoping to make more of an effort to include at least a quick blurb capturing the highlights.
Here is a page I made, inspired by Chapter 1 of Jill's class. In chapter 1, Jill encouraged us to "listen" to the photo and write what you see when you look at the picture in front of you.
I took two photos from my wedding day and focused on capturing the emotions I felt as I was getting ready that morning.
Is anyone else taking Jill's class? What are your thoughts when it comes to journaling on a layout ... are you a simple who/when/where kinda scrapper, or are you a storyteller scrapper who prefers to dig deeper?
