Project Life - Weeks 5 and 6

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

This fortnight I added a 6 x 12 insert to record some thoughts on my children's different personalities. (I mentioned we did an online personality test a few weeks ago, so this plays on what we found to be true from that exercise:).
I also decided to use gold coloured embellishments.  Sources listed at end of post.
But first, Week 5 marked the end of the summer school holidays and back to school. I used journaling to record the subjects each is taking this year, plus journaled over a photo which I applied transparency to first as it wasn't the greatest photo of my daughter watering our 101.5 year old (yes, amazing huh!) neighbour's garden.  Bottom right, selfie of a book I'm enjoying at the moment.

Insert tabs were changed to grey by applying black and white to the original colored version before printing. Source below.
Above - I found this cartoon my sister had saved for my son at Christmas so printed it on acid free paper.  I also included a photo of my vision board I made for a OLW exercise.  I included an ampersand (source below) which I altered by changing to negative before printing so it would have the dark colour I was after to balance all the lightness this week.

 Supplies: Seafoam journaling and filler cards; Gold digital elements printed on inserts and week in review cards from Paislee Press (free download, not sure they're available any more), elements on bottom of inserts and lined card behind photo also from Paislee Press ; ampersand freebie from here; tabs from Studio Calico; gold chipboard letters from Basic Grey (have had these for years).
I think that's all.  Any questions, fire away!

Thanks for stopping by, Donna
