This week’s page production clocked in at around 45 minutes. I took a little more time. Added a few more little digital stamps. A bit more journaling.
And I love it.
Seriously. I feel like I’ve figured out my Project Life jam, if that’s even a thing. Can that be a thing for a middle aged woman? Yes? Okay? Good!
Let’s take a look, shall we?
This week, I swapped out the blue I’ve been using for orange. My reason? I felt like it.
You’ll notice I’ve been keeping the same journaling card in the same slot for the past three weeks. I’m pretty sure I could come up with an image and journaling to fill it in every week. So far it’s been used to describe screen shots from my iPhone. (Remember how to do those? Hold down your Home Button and the top button at the same time to take a photo of your screen.) Again, this is a Crap Free Mandate: thou shalt not reinvent scrap wheel.
I love how there’s a lot of pink and orange on the right hand page. I had to balance out all that color with black and whites on the right hand size.
Here’s a tip: Whenever you’re dropping journaling cards into any layer mask, zoom in close and really pay attention to the spacing. These smaller slots on my Life Basics Minimals take a 3 x 4 just about perfectly, proportionately speaking (when you size them down, of course), but it never hurts to really zoom in and make sure the spaces are all nice and even.
Here’s another tip: On the Love This Story card, I changed to opacity of the underlying layer mask to create a slightly softer look to the card. Playing with those Opacity Sliders can really give you some control over changing the look of your digital elements.
And here’s one more tip for good measure: Have fun with this project and don’t overthink it. Photos + stories = happy place.
Hey! That could be your jam, too! I don’t own the market on Project Life Jams.
If you want a closer look at my process, I recorded a video showing you how I put my Project Life pages together every week. Find that video here.
