Hi guys! This is part 1 for my hybrid layout for Week 15 in my 2017 Project Life album, the digital portion in Photoshop. In this video I will share my process for creating the digital layout and the following video will be my process for embellishing the printed layout!
Once my layout is created in Photoshop, I print the layout using my Canon wide format printer onto Staples brand matte photo paper. Then the fun of embellishing begins! Have a look at that process video here:
Here is a look at the full layout!
I was really excited to use this date card - those angles are great opportunities to add the alphas and numbers! I also added a transparent flower from Freckled Fawn into the white space.
Our stories this week began with Spring Break and the highlight of the week was our adventure to Dave & Busters to play video games ALL DAY LONG! We also spent some time at the park, went to McDonald's, and watched April the giraffe finally have her little baby!
The layout this week is photo heavy, which is really awesome and that means I like to keep the embellishing light. Just a few floral elements and stamped elements here and there, plus some added hand written journaling.
I am loving using some of the smaller photos with a solid color background and text beside. It also gives the layout some added visual interest!
For this photo of the girls I backed it with a journal card instead of journaling. I just love everything about it - the dreamy photo and the fun pattern plus the happy heart. All the good things!
Look how grown up they are all getting! I know I have spoken before about how great it is to be proud of the environment you are photographing in (ie your house!), and this photo is proof of that. Our house is not perfect by any means, but we have worked hard to make it a comfortable place to be and also a pretty back drop for our photos. I love that!
Did you notice how I used the numbered journal card to create a manifesto of sorts? I simply stamped all of the word strips on the Becky Higgins roller stamp for a fun filler card.
Do you include current events on your Project Life layouts? I admit I don't very often, but I did grab a few screen shots of April and her baby giraffe and included it here. That was such a fun event to follow along and I feel like I learned so much about giraffes in that process, did you?
