Remember almost a month ago when I last posted about Project Life? Yep. I’m still working on it. I'm even still caught up. But I am also still limiting myself to one page per week just so I get it done.
I am actually finding that I like working in smaller space. I still use way too many photos, but I have had fun trying to collage photos into smaller spaces using PicFrame. This 99 cent app has made Project Life so much easier for me. I can collage photos when I am waiting at ballet or in line at the grocery store. I know it sounds weird, but that is my life, people.
I am also really enjoying playing with Waterlogue. Have you tried it? This app turns your photos into watercolors. Sometimes, it is a flop, but other times, the images are fantastic. I used it (and Over) to make my date card for the week of February 17. Then I imported my watercolor into PicFrame with my other photos from the same day, and printed the entire collage as a 4x6.
For the next week, I used quite a few cards from the Cut and Paste Mini Kit by Amy Tangerine. I know I said I wasn’t using kits. I can admit when I am wrong. I might even sign up for Studio Calico’s monthly kit now. I love easy.
My favorite part of this week’s layout was printing onto the journaling cards. I find that I easily forget the silly things that my kids say during the week unless I write them down immediately. Instagram helps with this tremendously. I just write it in the caption as I shoot the photo. But sometimes, there isn’t a photo. This is when I text my mom.
That photo is kind of wonky. In case you can't read it, my son said "I saw it on Pinterest."
This past week, I finally branched out and attempted to add text using Photoshop. Let’s just say it is still a work in progress.
