So I am late with PL this week as my lovely friend L reminds me. So L, this is for you! Thank you for reading the blog so much!
I thought I would shake things up a bit this week and go through PL in sections. So first up...
This was one of those glorious weeks when I took lots of photos so I had a nice big selection to choose from. The weather was wonderful this week so I took myself off for a walk and grabbed some photos with the intention of using them in PL.
My instagramming in lent is also providing a phone photo a day so lots of choice!
These pages came together easily because as well as a lot of photos I had a lot of things I wanted to say. I wanted to do a little round up of the month, journal about the lovely socks my mum sent me in the post and record my feelings on my family coming up and visiting.
I am really enjoying using a set of watercolour brushes on my journaling cards. I also experimented with adding a white paint effect to the photo of the library. I love how this turned out and that it reflected something I would do with my photos if they were in paper form!
I put a few simple words around the photos of leaves on the first page. Again writing around objects is something I would do on paper so I chose to replicate it.
I have used this technique before but I split a photo across two pockets. I find this works well for landscapes or buildings. This view of Durham was perfect.
I am still loving the colours of the seafoam kit. On photoshop I often adapt the journalling cards to match colours up. For instance the 'recorded' card was originally black writing but I switched it to the blue to tie in with the card next to it.
I made the pages separately again and always love that moment when I put them together. So much fun to see how the colours and photos will work together.
I liked adding a monthly calendar to my last week of january spread so thought I would replicate it here.
Phew! Week 9. Such a great project. So excited to see the pages all together.
* On a totally different note, I am focusing this week on getting all the essays done, deadlines met and birthdays of friends celebrated. I am therefore taking a bit of a blogging break until I am free enough to write coherently again! I will still be visiting your lovely blogs and commenting where possible. I am planning to be up and posting again by next wednesday! See you soon.*
