I finally have time to share some of my Project Life. I finished the first spread last week, and the second one this week. I am still 3 weeks behind, but I cannot seem to be able to catch up with all the things that are going on lately! Here’s Week 13:
I love these bright colors! I had started using the colors I eventually used for Week 14 on this spread, but they just didn’t work with the photos, so I started over and picked the colors from my little birds art piece. Much better! 🙂
I painted the birds wood veneers from Studio Calico to match the color scheme.
Sorry, I had to block out a few pictures on the top left. Here are some details:
Labels are hot for Project Life right now, and I am starting to see why! 🙂 I loved using these ones
by Valorie Wibbens this week!
We still had the palm from last year, so I cut a few pieces to put in my album. I love how it turned out! The “yum” was cut out with my Silhouette. I used mist paints to spray the numbers.
Let’s move on to Week 14! 🙂
The color for this week was purple – inspired by the lovely kit by Jenn Barrette, it went perfectly with an insert I had from the chocolate we bought at church. 🙂
The main ingredients this week are digi papers, stamps, wood veneer, cutouts, and paint. I framed all the photos with the new frames by Designs by Lili – they are so cool!
I love how this week turned out! Here’s a few details.
I used acrylic paint to stamp. It took a bit of patience to get it right on the little stamps I used for the title, while it was much easier with the bigger letters. I love the look! I took a screenshots of my votes for Dancing with the Stars, and made DH do the same. I will have a similar inserts for the next few weeks too. 🙂
I stamped this doily stamp with acrylic paint and distress ink.
More stamping with acrylic paint.
Here I painted on the kraft colored alpha stickers – I love how they turned out! The calendar is a Facebook freebie by Mari Koegelenberg – I love it!
Love the painted wood veneer!
I did a mix of stamping here for the title – so pretty!
Here I painted the cutout from my Silhouette. Originally, I tried using this as a mask to paint the letters, but it got messy and it didn’t work out.
