Project Life Week 6-10

Hey there

A bit of a catch up post with my last few weeks of Project life as I have been a slacker and not photographed. Actually, I blame the weather. Even today the weather was awful and so are the photos so sorry about the poor quality. Still working out how to take good PL photos too. Any tips much welcomed.

So here are the last few weeks in PL:

Week 6 full

Week 6 LHS

Week 6 RHS

Week 6 Insert page 1 & 2 (there are 4 pages but I haven't included the nudie bubba ones from Lily's photoshoot).

Week 7 Double

Week 7 LHS

Week 7 RHS
Insert week 7 page 1-4 (My 30th)
Week 8

Week 9

Week 10 full
Week 10 LHS
Week 10 RHS

Okay... so that is a lot of pictures... and terrible ones at that but you get the idea at least. I find that I do either 1 or 2 page spreads depending on how active my week has been. Last week we did some more interesting things so it was worthy of a double. The 2 weeks before that were kinda dull so were single pages each. And week 7 was my 30th so it had a  4 page insert.

The materials I use for my PL are quite varied. I use mostly Becky Higgins page protectors with the occasional WRMK, Echo Park and Snap thrown in. I use a bit of BH Seafoam collection and some Simple Stories SNAP, plus a variety of internet freebies or downloads. I have been trying to include a weekly weather screen shot from my Iphone or Ipad each week now too as I think its a pretty cool thing to look back and know what the weather was like. Although they don't seem to really express how miserable QLD weather has been for months.

I keep my embellishments relatively simple, mostly using Studio Calico wood veneer, and lots of alphas, particuarly AC Thickers or Jillibean soup alphas.

I edit all my photos in Photoshop Elements 11 and add a lot of digital brushes and overlays as well as journalling to my photos now. I also prefer to do my journalling cards in photoshop as my handwriting makes me cringe!

Thanks for visiting.
