Here's the full spread for Week 17. I did only one side, I've done this for the past two weeks since I sometimes don't have enough pictures and thought this would help me keep up and still enjoy project life instead of feeling like I have to find things to add. Of course this week I had enough pictures for two spreads but went with my favorites.
I used Amy Tangerine's challenge of getty artsy in my spread this week. I used my water color Lyra Crayons, based off Lisa Truesdell's love for them in her post, to color in the week. Of course I had to showcase the crayons themselves as I just received them this week too!
A look at how I used this die cut to reference the week. I used water colors to choose the month and week. I also used water color to create this 4x6 card. I love having control over the background colors, such a fun technique!
Here on the right I used another card from the lovely Echo Park Paper Co, happy paper. On the left, I wrote directly on the picture with my black precision pen and added a little die cut from BasicGrey.
I did mention I love shadows right? This picture was so pefect, loved it. I used a 4x6 card from Pebbles and cut around the "Happy Thoughts" and stuck my phto behind it. I absoultely love the effect and dimension it gives. I also stamped the date with my lovely Dear Lizzy stamp.
I love playing with shadows in photography, it's always a fun snapshot. I added a little die cut from the BasicGrey pack and a couple enamel dots. Nothing is ever complete without enamel dots, right?!?
A little closeup of the lovely glitter tape by American Crafts that I cut to a banner shape. These are the best tapes ever, I love every color and highly recommend the value pack. I used some simple white letter stickers to create the title on this picture/pocket and love how simple it is. The little star is from BasicGrey and I love how it's transparent,
although you can see my glue but I won't let that bother me.
I wrapped twine around this 3x4 card with an Instax picture of Riggly. I took a Studio Calico Wood Veneer Heart and colored it white with my gel pen...best white gel pen e.v.e.r.
Thanks for following along <3 How many of you do Project Life and if so,do you keep a one page or two page spread each week? I know the possibilities are endless with how you go about project life, I would love to hear your techniques.
