I’m very excited to share week 3 of my Project Life album! Once again, though, I have to apologize for the poor quality of the photos… I have no natural light available (it’s a gloomy, rainy day here) so this is the best I could do. Unlike the previous weeks, this week I didn’t have time to work on my album on Wednesday night, but I worked on it Friday night instead, then finished up Sunday evening. The process was very smooth.
Here is a closer look to the two pages:
Unlike the past two weeks, the design of this week was not inspired from a card; I got the color scheme from the breakfast picture and went from there. It was fun to see how the yellow recurred in subsequent pictures as well – I swear I wasn’t looking for it on purpose! 🙂
I did however draw inspiration from a card for the little banners here. 🙂 Having barely mastered straight stitches, freehand sewing does not come too easy to me, but I think it turned out well enough! 😉 I stitched down the leftovers from the banner to embellish two cards on the right page.
I didn’t use any cards from the Clementine kit this week, since my color scheme was pretty unique. But that’s OK. I had some of the digital bits already printed out, and printed out more to match. I went with DH to Lowe’s yesterday and stopped to pick up a few paint chips. It was just perfect to fill up one of the pockets (top right)! 🙂 I also got all excited when I saw some bigger paint samples, because it looked like they were 4″x6″, but in fact they are more like 4″x5.5″… annoying, but I’m sure I’ll find a good use for them. 🙂
