Good Monday morning everyone! It's Amy here today with a fun challenge that I've been wanting to do for some time; documenting your social media usage!
Most of us these days uses one, if not many avenues of social media, to keep in touch with friends, family, blog followers, colleagues and the such. So why not document what you are active using right now, since as we all know, technology advances so quickly that tomorrow one or more of these avenues may be obsolete! Won't it be fun to look back on these and say "Oh, my goodness, do you remember using THAT?!"
For my page I used the new collection, Daily Flash, Snapshots, to document, my most used social media. I loved using the "seriously?" tin pin on my title, since in real life I'm pretty introverted when it comes to socializing, so having that bit of sarcasm in there made me smile! :)
For my social media icons, I created a cut file for my silhouette using readily available free social media icons that I found online. If you'd like the cut file I created, I am giving it away on my blog today here.
I asked Vivian to join me in today's challenge. Here's a look at her awesome page:
I loved Amy's idea for today's challenge! Facebook is my go-to social media platform but I had never documented my use of it on a layout before. I pulled up the Facebook app on my iPhone and, as I scrolled through some recent posts, took screenshots of a variety of status updates and wall posts. (If you don't know how to take a screenshot on an iPhone, push the power and home buttons simultaneously. The image will then appear in your camera roll.) I printed the screenshots out and trimmed them, arranging them in a layered collage across my page, embellishing across the top with Daily Flash paper and embellishments. I printed my journaling on more Daily Flash paper and then ran it through my Silhouette, cutting my title with this free font: http://www.fonts2u.com/facebookletterfaces.font. One more tin pin and...social media, documented!
Thank you so much, Vivian! This is a fantastic page and a brilliant way to document your activity on Facebook!
If you'd like to play along with this week's challenge, we hope you'll share your projects in the October Afternoon Flickr gallery for us all to see! We hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
