Weeks there and four of project life...
A real mix up over these last two weeks. Week three has the photos the boy and I took on our day trip to a local national trust property. It was a beautiful sunny day and I brought the SLR rather than the iPhone which is always a nice change.
Week four are the back to uni photos which include far more instagrams. We did head out on a quick walk over the weekend though so I included a few of my favourites from that. I loved that big photo of my housemate. It was a toss up about whether I kept it in colour or go black and white. More often than not in Project life the black and white photos stand out more against the colour of the all the journalling and paper.
Week three is quite journalling heavy. I wanted to include my feelings about heading back to uni after Christmas and also document my one little word. Looking back on my album from last year, I am grateful I took the time to record how I felt as well as the events that went on.
Week four has some journalling to go with the screen shot of the boy and I face timing. It is things like this that I want to remember. I hope one day we will laugh at this and find it very "old fashioned" that we video called each other most evenings!
I tried using just one template for both of the pages this week. I love the squares in week three. They are perfect for journalling and for instagrams.
Over the holidays I sat down and worked out some of my favourite ways to display photos and text. I then made up a series of templates to make the process simpler and easier. So far it is working a treat!
I was surprised how much I enjoyed working with the template for week four. I was worried I wouldn't have enough portrait photos to fill it up it's a really versatile template.
Still using tried and tested techniques. Writing directly on photos and adding journalling cards.
I am so glad I just bought a digital scrapbooking kit this year rather than a specific project life one. I can use the elements just how I want them and there is so much possibility for editing and changing them up in photoshop.
This project is great. I'm so glad I have documented January this year. Onto february folks!
