One of the ways I have learned to complete Week In The Life™ over the years is by doing the "making" portion of the album in batches.
Yesterday I shared the start of my process where I created daily title pages, an opening page, and a reason why page. The next part in my process usually involves dealing with the journaling.
As you saw during the documenting week, I spend time at the end of each day typing up my journaling and posting it here to my blog. Now that it's time to get those words into my album I follow a simple process of copying and pasting my text into Illustrator (you could do this in Photoshop or Word ) where I format it based on the page size in my album. For this year's project I decided to "text wrap" my words around embellishments. This means that I measured the size of the embellishments I wanted to use, drew those shapes in Illustrator, and used the "text wrap" function (Object/Text Wrap) to have my words flow around that space on the page.
Here's a look at each of the journal pages so far in my album:
Monday had two additional journaling pages that I put into the full page 6x8 page protector.
Here's the second page:
The "everyday stuff" plastic circle is from the Week In The Life™ Die Cut Bundle.
And the third page for Monday:
Here's Tuesday (Tuesday also has a second page that I'll share when I finish it up):
Here's Wednesday (also has a second page that I'll share later):
Next up I will finish adding photos to some of the second pages of journaling and print out the additional full page 6x8 photos.
