Practice Book - Prompt #1 Follow up

Did you make a page with smiles? What makes you smile? You can include those things. Now, let's look at your page. The rest of us can't see it, so you have to learn to critique your own work. Were you satisfied with the weight of the page (thickness)? If you'd prefer something heavier, you can glue it to the next page. Or several pages. Are you happy with the colors? the size of the image(s)? the way the page is laid out? When you analyze what you like and what you don't - it will help you with the next pages you work on. Go on and make mistakes! You'll learn from them.

By the way, if you have pages you'd like to share, post a link in the comments section so readers can follow your progress and get to know you.

The photo here is for Diane! You know what makes me smile. This is Lulu. A clown of a dog. Nikki is hiding under the pillow with just her nose showing. They can make any dog lover smile!


  1. Oh, Janene, I LOVED doing this!!!! I chose 4 great pix of women, used 2 to a page (HAD to do a spread, lol). !st a used a lt. rose w/c for background. Then adhered 2 women to 1st pg. Put faux flowers on and tiny gold branch. On 2nd pg. I put a butterfly on top corner, then the women, then more flowers, with a note that reads: These are a few of our favorite things.
