Welcome to Project Life® 2014 | Week One (December 30th through January 5th).
Jumping around with my weeks in an attempt to show you a bit more of how 2014 is progressing (in addition to the 2013 album I’m working on at the same time). I’ve got Weeks 2, 3 (already posted here), and 4 done with the other weeks up until today about 75% done. 2013 is completed through October.
As I was working on this project again today my heart was full.
I’m glad I’m sticking with it weekly. It encourages me to be intentional. It encourages me to take photos. And darn it, I just like it.
One of the things I did this week to unify my spread was add the same little title & journal spot on seven of the photos.
I love repetition!
I like that I was able to just just a few words/phrases on each photo to give a little bit more information. Here’s a look at one of them:
I think this idea helped me finally complete this spread. It’s been “almost done” for way too long but I wasn’t sure how to finish it off all the way. Creating these little cards helped.
I included a little blurb about me that was included in our local paper about One Little Word® and included a key card from a getaway with Aaron (yep, he’s still around).
Throughout 2014 I’m using a brush set called Messy Weekly Lines to designate each week in my album. I talked about this a bit when I shared my 2014 title page, but it’s been going well. I’m using the font Sentinel to add the dates below the week.
It’s a little bit of a change up for me to think of which photo I want to use in that top left pocket but I like the change from the pattern cards.
On the second half of the spread I used a “today” card is from the Plus One Mini Project Life® kit alongside a “2014″ letterpress card that was included in a Kelly Purkey kit.
I think the card on the end, with the little yellow star, is from the Studio Calico Blue Note Project Life® kit.
All the other “this day” cards were added to the edge of the photos but this one had so much white in the middle that I went with that instead.
