This week's Project Life covers the week of Sept 2- September 8th.
Confession: when I allow myself to get behind in Project Life, I suddenly feel uninspired when I am playing catch up. I am not strict on "keeping up" by any means, but I think I am more inspired when the memories are fresh in my mind. Or at least more recent than four weeks ago :)
As I sat down to create this spread, I began to put it together in my traditional method. I was moving the photos around, not feeling very inspired. I knew I wanted to include the enlargement from the Mumford & Sons concert, but I wasn't sure about everything else. Should I include an insert? Should I add ALL the photos from the week?
That was when I decided to have a little fun and play with the photos and layouts. Three photos and one full journaling spot is what this spread ended up to be--- and that is okay! I focused on the main stories that week-- the concert, my husband and brother going to Florida, and time spent with my parents. I enlarged these photos and memories and played with embellishments and lettering.
And you know what, I love the change.
For my journaling for the concert, I simply added the playlist from that night. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone and printed at www.mpix.com. To take a bokeh photo of the concert lights I tapped the dark portion of the image on the screen so that the lights would go out of focus and quickly snapped the pic. It took a few tries (because your phone will automatically try to focus on the lights) but I love the magical feel it offers.
