Hi guys! Today I am documenting our visit to Disney Hollywood Studios in my Disney Project Life album. Have a look at my process here:
Here is the layout with photos and journaling cards. The cards are from Sahlin Studios Project Mouse and the Midnight Edition Core kit from Project Life.
Here is the layout completed, with journaling and embellishments:
The very first thing I did in my process was to add my splashes of watercolor on the journal cards. I love how subtle these little additions of color are, and how fun it is to add watercolors to your cards!
Now if you watched the process video then you are probably laughing when you look at this card! I am laughing too, so it is totally ok. This was an example of what not to do in stamping, and yet even though I experienced a funny adventure creating this card, I still really love how it turned out in the pocket!
The photos across the bottom are of the stage, taken from the audience. Narrowing down which photos to include here: of course I took probably 100 just at this show, and then I printed probably 10. In the end these were included because they show some of the most exciting portions of the show and they fit in with the story I am telling.
Now the story I am telling in this layout is really about how mesmerized all the kids were during this show. We loved this show A LOT (!!!) and so the photos and the journaling all work together to tell that story overall.
I really think, of course, that this photo landed in this layout precisely because Addison is totally fixed on this show. I love the moment this photo captures, where he is in the foreground, and then Nick's ear and shoulder are behind him, and Emberlynn's pony tail behind that!
Here is one more look at this side:
On the right hand side I wanted to include some of the miscellaneous shopping photos I took that day. I did this in Epcot, too, if you remember the layout about the nutcracker in the window. I loved shopping at Disney and loved all the shop displays! I wish I had taken more photos of us picking out things we wanted and things we got, but it is ok to let that go.
I absolutely love how these watercolors and Heidi Swapp Shine add pops of color to these journaling cards! I know some people are bothered because the gold one leaves a ring around the splash, but I have to say I think they kind of look like suns here! What helps, too, is putting the color down and then move the card around a bit so the lighter color can spread a bit more.
I didn't actually buy this little stuffed puppy, but we all really did fall in love with him. Also, notice how I did not add watercolors to every journal or filler card.
And then one last card on this layout, which is fairly simple and lovely. These Project Life Core kit cards provide such great canvases for additional embellishments.
One last look at this side of the layout:
So that's it for today's layout! You will have to let me know what you think about adding mixed media to Project Life and Project Mouse cards. See you tomorrow!
