It's official. I heart Ali's Week in the Life project.
One day done. I took 259 photos on Monday. What? You so crazy!
I did. And there were many I loved that didn't make the final cut. Photos like these, with lots of wood in the background:
Honestly? I can't remember the last time I was this hyper-focused on visual documentation. For me, written documentation is always going to be easier. I actually have to work at remember to take pictures.
Here are what my album spreads ended up looking like:
I am using Ali's Week in the Life 8.5 Template Pack as the base for my project. I'm using the weekday opener pages and the collage pages that come in the pack for a fully digital page, then printing those on my HP Photosmart using Ilford Gallerie Smooth Pearl paper.
I'm using We R Memory Keepers 8.5 x 11 divided page protectors for my trading card sized elements, all of which are based off of Ali's template design. I just did some tweaking to suit my needs.
I love the idea of doing a project almost fully digi, and then just printing and cutting apart. I think it looks really slick in my album.
I've chosen to go with grey, yellow and white digital papers for the entire project. I'm using Avenir for my journaling and some of my circle art, to tie in with Ali's design.
I'm looking forward to seeing this project unfold. Thanks, Ali, for the great idea.
