OBSERVATIONS: Last week seemed like a week where not very much happened until I went back through my notes and photos. I love when I realize that hey, stuff really did happen and if I hadn’t thought to jot it down in the moment, or snap a quick photo, well, it would have been lost to time and memory.
I also decided to get really Photohop-y with my pictures this week, adding overlays, wrapping text and creating bleeding headlines to top some of my shots. What can I say? Some days just need more Photoshop. This week, I’m including a short video tutorial to show you how to do one little technique. More on that below. First, let’s look at the pages.
Of course I had to include a brief summary of the Cole-Kony story, saved via Tiny Template. And I layered in some text onto a shot of some blooming lilacs, as well as dropped an overlay onto a self portait of me working.
More text on photos, and the tip I’m going to share is how to do this:
I loved this shot of Aidan’s backpack, as she headed off to school, and just wanted to drop some journaling onto the photo before printing. Creating a ghosted background for journaling is simple. Want proof? Here’s a quick video that shows you how I did it.
Here are a few more images from the week.
On this photo, I simply created a text box that extended into the salad image, and hit return every time I got close to the image to create this custom wrap effect.
I just released a new Check Card set called “The Kid Life Edition.” The cards in this set could be really fun for covering all aspects of kid life in a check box format. Included in the set are sheets of printable PDFs in black ink for those of you who do not have Photoshop at your disposal.
I recorded a video about working with this style of card. You can find that by clicking here.
And that, friends, is all she wrote on Project Life for Week Sixteen.
