Welcome to Project Life® 2013 | Week Thirty-One and Week Thirty-Two (July 22 – July 28).
There are so many different ways to tackle documenting a longer vacation.
For longer trips I usually like to create a small album (8×8 or 6×8) depending on the adventure, the number of photos, etc. That said, I actually have about four of these that need to be done from my last few international trips.
Yep. Hello piles of stuff.
Sometimes I wonder if just printing out highlights from the trip and adding them to Project Life would feel better than the albums in the pile that I plan/hope/intend to get to down the road. One of these days I need to try that.
For Project Life during our trip to Paris a few weeks back I’m choosing to simply add two 12×12 photos cut to fit the pockets to cover the two weeks we were away. I did the same thing for my trip to Ireland last year - it’s a good option for me when I’m planning to put together a smaller album from the trip.
My process is simple:
2. Cut in half vertically to create 2, 6×12 images.
3. Take each half and cut into 3, 4×6 images.
4. Take the middle 4×6 image and cut into 2, 3×4 images (sometimes I have to make these a little less than 3 inches wide).
I want to do this same thing with an enlarged photo at the end and beginning pages of my second and third albums.
Here’s what it looks like in the album:
We were actually gone for two weeks but rather than including 4 enlargements (or two spreads) I decided to just go with one spread.
I added just two small digital brushes onto the upper left 4×6 part of the photo.
These two pages make me pretty happy.
