Currently I am taking an online point and shoot journaling class from LK Ludwig. I find that I like the format of an online class. It allows me to take the class when ever I feel like it, to repeat it as necessary and to not feel any pressure. The first assignment was Resonate-to relate harmoniously. You had to pick two photos from your collection that struck a cord with you either visually or emotionally. Writing down a list of verbs and adjectives you wrote out feeling sentences, that expressed your feelings around the photos. Using a white gel pen I wrote the words and sentences on my photos. I then scratched the photos using a paper clip-I like the worn torn up look that this achieved. Photos of big ripe pumpkins "echoed" my thoughts of the first two photos I had chosen. The words that came up for me were pregnant, full, complete, proud, robust, satisfaction, finished. "Satisfied of a job well done, her tired trunk bent with the weight of her plump harvest."
