Project Life | Week 28 & 29
Right now, I’m 29 weeks into my Project Life, a journey I couldn’t imagine I would come this far. Looking back at how I gave up around Week 14 last year, I’m really proud of myself for persevering week after week this year. If you ask me if I’m enjoying every minute of putting my pages together, I truly and really do. I find it so fulfilling seeing them come together, when I flip through those pages, I beam with pride and happiness, more so when my family and friends enjoyed going through each page with big smiles on their faces, it resonate with my feelings.
And here are another two weeks of my spread that I completed earlier this month, using Becky Higgins Midnight core kit printed from the digital version. I added bits and pieces of embellishments from my Studio Calico kits and my personal stash.
Over time, I’ve changed my style of documenting each card on my Project Life. I’m now using a lot of white base card, keeping it as clean as possible with the focus on the photos, adding just a few embellishments here and there.
What I love about Midnight kit is that the cards are very clean and easy to work on. I love the color scheme and design. Liz Tamanaha is amazingly talented in creating this kit!
If you notice, I would consistently use labels, wood veneer, chipboard stickers, washi tapes, stamp and occasional flair button on my pages. These are the few essential and favorite items that I would often use on my spreads. And I believe that’s more than sufficient to complete a full two-page spread.
I hope you’re still enjoying your Project Life and keeping up at your own pace. Whatever it is, whether you’re one or two or ten weeks behind, it is ok. You’ll get there eventually. Don’t give up.
I’ve been asked if I’m going to share my Project Life process on video, how I put my spread together, I’m still thinking how I’m going to video it. It’ll definitely be a no voice tutorial in the video (you know how much I dislike hearing my own voice! *laugh*), just a quick run through of my process. You know, something like Charlie Chaplin voiceless film.
Let me try to set up my camera on tripod, get a good angle to shoot the video successfully. I hope I’ll be able to put the video together after a few tries. Wish me luck!
I’ll be back soon with more of my PL pages!
