Time to announce the May Day2Day Themes for our Day2Day/Photo A Day peeps! We have some great new themes for you to play around with while taking your daily photos, a couple of which are sure to challenge you. That’s what I love about the Day2Day project – it’s all about looking through the lens and finding something interesting to take that represents your daily life. Embrace the challenge, shoot from different angles, make something “ordinary” look like a work of art. Stretch your photo taking skills and challenge yourself with your captures – it’s all about recording your Day2Day life, those around you, and of course, having fun!

The 3rd Friday of every month means a new FREE pakit will be in the Forever Store with the co-ordinating 2017 Day2Day artwork to go with our Day2Day projects. This gives everyone time to check out what the themes for each week will be for the next month, and also time to download and prep pages ready to drop in photos and add journaling. We are loving seeing everyone’s weeks and a sense of community is definitely growing as we all share our Day2Day projects. If you missed starting at the beginning of the year, it’s not too late to join in. It doesn’t matter if you’ve missed a few days at the start of the year, jump in now and get recording your daily life in what is one of the most rewarding projects you’ll participate in.
The themes themselves are a suggestion only, to help you out when thinking or planning what photos to take during your Day2Day lives. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the Day2Day project – snap a photo each day to place on a weekly page that then leads to a fabulous book at the end of the year. Very much like a visual diary! What could be better?!?! This project is the perfect place for those random photos that may not usually have a “home” in regular album making – or it could be the record for your entire year. The flexibility is endless, because it is entirely your own project to do in your style, your way. One of the best things about the Day2Day project is that by taking a photo each day you can improve your photography skills along the way. It doesn’t matter if you use your phone, a “point and shoot”, or a DSLR – all that matters is that you take a photo with whatever camera you have at hand.
Here is the theme list for May 2017! The free co-ordinating 2017 Day2Day May Themes Kit can be found HERE at the Forever Store. If you would like to print the handout, you can right click on the image, save it and print it out at home.
Share your layouts on the pixels2Pages Facebook Group, or you can share them on the p2P Plan2Scrap Club which is a private Facebook Group. You can add the hashtags #forever and #day2dayproject and if you’d like to join in on Instagram, post your daily photos using those same hashtags.
For some inspiration look through the gallery below to see the 2017 Day2Day May themed embellishments used on layouts from the 2017 Day2Day First Half Pre-Designed Book. They are also easily recoloured, filled with paper or altered using the Threshold Filter to customise the artwork to your own style. The themes have been designed to co-ordinate perfectly with the 2017 Day2Day First Half Pre-Designed Books and Forever Design Maps 9 which will make your pages come together quickly, easily and seamlessly making the weekly pages effortless! Both are available in 12×12″ and 11×8.5″ sizes.
