Welcome to Project Life 2012 | Week Forty & Week Forty-One.
This week includes a bit of life at home and a bit of life on the road in Ireland.
Rather than include lots of my Ireland photos I just added a few – knowing that I’ll be doing an album featuring more of them (and more of the story). I felt like it was enough to show what was happening without duplicating all the details.
I also find that when I’m in a hurry to just get stuff in the pockets simply adding text to the photos is an easy path forward (vs. messing around with adding lots of other embellishments or handwritten journaling).
The “Hello Everyday Life” 3×4 card is part of a free download you can access on Becky’s site here.
“Hello Glorious Day” is from my new set of 3×4 cards: Awesome Story. I printed both cards on photo paper.
For Week Forty-One, where I was traveling the entire week, I decided to just go with two full page enlargements (again because the details of the trip will be documented in a mini-album).
These two 12×12 photos came from my iphone. Amazing that they can be blown up this big and still be decent quality. Love that. I printed them here at home using the Epson R2000 and 13×19 photo paper.
One thing I really wanted to show here was the contrast between the city and the county – the man-made and the natural. It was definitely an intentional choice in going with these two photos.
I added one small embellishment (and a date stamp to show the week) – a printed travel quote from this digital set: Travel Quote Strips.
For this embellishment I just re-colored it in Photoshop, printed on photo paper, cut around the edge and stapled in place.
