Took some time this past weekend to get a few more stories into my Project Life® 2018 album. I've been pretty good keeping up with printing the photos it's just beena matter finding time to add in the words and the extra stuff. No stress. No worries. Making time when I have time.
Still loving this project as the main record of daily life right now.
Here's a closer look:
One thing I did in this spread was intentionally go with more pink. I started with the pattern card for the date card and then used that as the jumping off point for my journal cards. Rather than add handwriting onto journal cards this time I just created journal cards in Photoshop with a pink background + white and red text. I also added a few little yellow star stickers to link those pink cards together.
Color is another simple way to create a unified spread even when you are working with photos that include lots of photos.
I used a POSCA Paint Pen to write on the photo of Simon at the Doctor's office and to draw boxes around the red word/phrase stickers.
Label sticker + pattern 4x6 card = easiest way to make a date/title.
I love looking for opportunities to include "white space" in my photos that I can then use to hold words. The folded "love" card was from Aaron's Valentine's gift to me.
Kept it simple by just adding red word/phrase stickers to most of the photos and then repeated the handwriting on another 3x4 photo - this time with a black pen for contrast.
