Project Life 2013 - Weeks 3 and 4

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Weeks 3 and 4.  This was really the first test for me as weeks 1 and 2 involved holiday photos.  While I've decided to continue one page per week, I still want both pages to look visually in harmony.  Couple this with my desire maintain simplicity (both in visual look and putting together), I found I had to spend a lot of time thinking and planning before doing.  I actually enjoy this process.... may be something to do with my personality type!

 Week 1 - I decided to include week numbers from now.  I get confused looking back on this so it's to help me as much as anything, but does add another digital element. I used Paislee Press for my week summary and Seafoam for other journaling.  I am using downloads from A C Digitals.  That was I can adjust and print with square edges (another 2013 decision), and add my text before printing. Easy peasy once you establish a system.
 Week 2: More Paislee Press, including a recent purchase of this one which says "you are loved".  Shelby our Border Collie has featured a lot this fortnight as each day incorporates walks with her. We are lucky to live very close to the beach.
 The fortnight overall look.
 I used a Roald Dahl quote on the photo "those who don't believe in magic will never find it".  Both Anna and I love that one.  The bottom quote is lyrics from a Pink Floyd song which Nicholas and I love and I find quite relevant at the moment!  I used 2 Seafoam card elements placed over each other to achieve the yellow border I wanted.

Seafoam journaling cards for Currently reading and an interesting little exercise my son encouraged us to do - an online personality type test.  I've done this before for work so no surprises there for me, however we all turned out quite different... could explain some interesting differences of opinion etc that we all have!  Life in a house with teens is interesting! 

On to Week 5.  My kids are back to school after summer holidays here.

Thanks for stopping by.
