In our Project 12 blog circle this month, we focused on creating a portrait that didn’t include a face. I think a portrait should demonstrate “who a person is” in some way; it should show a facet of their personality. And since Emily started high school this fall and has her first-ever locker, I decided to focus on that. She personalized it, made it hers–got the required binders in some of her favorite bright, cheery colors, collected cute baskets and magnets to hold her stuff, and chose photos of treasured memories with some of her favorite people (and yes, her Dad and I feel lucky and honored to still earn a coveted spot!), and printed still more photos that she took herself with her ever-growing photography skills (of which I am SO proud)! She ended up with a lower locker that’s definitely less convenient, but at the same time the lower ones are twice as tall as the rest, so she even had room for shelves. She is so excited!
As always, please continue on in our little circle to see what beautiful work Laura came up with this month!!
