Project Life has fallen off my To Do list. It happens. Life gets busy. Work demands to be done. Apparently clean clothes and food are required on some level, too. So the other day, I sat down and decided to knock out six weeks in one shot. One of the things I decided this year is that a single page per week is plenty. Yes, some weeks I’ve gone with a spread because of the sheer number of photos I had. But by and large, I’ve been a one page a week kind of girl. That, and a digital girl. At least for 2014. I’m still not completely sure what I’ll do at year’s end. Make a digital book? Maybe. Just order prints and put them into a traditional binder? Possibly. I’m still working that one out. In the mean time, here’s a look at the pages I made in about an hour, give or take.
In Week 28, I made my own simple journal card by dragging a copy of the text from the weekly wrap up down, and adding a simple digital brush and clipping it into the card layer mask. Also, every photo on this page comes courtesy of my iPhone 5. And in Week 29, I filled one card space with some solid color and a digital stamp.
Sometimes, a little teen privacy is needed for the online sharing. If you ever need a little teen privacy, download my Privacy Labels set for free. The post includes a tutorial on how to use them and how to blur out what you need to keep private.
One thing I did in Weeks 31 and 32 was to merge some of the center photo masks to create larger ones. It’s pretty simple to do. You simple drag one center handle of a mask over the one next to it to enlarge its size, then select both layers and merge them together. Easy peasy. It made sense for Week 32 where the visual focus was all on the Ultimate tournament both kids played in last weekend.
Sigh. Aidan’s last pre-college sporty event thingie.
And with that, I’m caught up. I’ll probably let it slide over the next few weeks, what with the impending college drop off coming. But I know I can catch up when I need to.
