Wednesday was the day I discovered the self timer app which is screaming obviously! due to all the photos of me taken during the day. No head shots, deliberately. I wanted to get photos of me doing things – making the school lunches, creating, washing up, etc. These are all everyday things that I don’t think twice about, I just do. Another reason why there are more photos of me is that Wednesday is the first day of the week that all four kids at school.
I came across this quote again today and scripted it. Winston Churchill was a wise man, don’t you think?
Welcome to week twenty-four of my Project Life journey. Humour me for a second – yesterday I completed three weeks and I am pleased to say that volume one of 2014 is compete. Still seven weeks to go while continuing to Project Life the present but I’m a step closer to my goal.
What I love about my week twenty-four is that even though I’ve kept the products used to a minimum it still looks colourful. Bright pinks, soft blues, strong stripes of black. The photos are clear and light. Everything has space to breathe. I was a short of photos for this week hence the two printed out quotes and two photos of telephones that I found on Pinterest and just adored.
Ok. Feeling a little overwhelmed. It’s the end of the year. The kids finish school for 2014 in less than two weeks and there are lots of events to attend and prepare for. I have taken on many projects. Each of them I love doing, creating for and I am so grateful for the work. But oh my giddy aunt. I am maxed. Hence my art journal page for today. It’s about me. Just for today.
Here is our Tuesday in the album. (You can see my Week in the Life posts to date here). The main thought that was going through my mind while creating our second day was “Am I going to run out of product from the kit, in particular page protectors?” I had to keep telling myself “just use it”. So I did. So I am. I may run out of product by the end or I may not. Regardless, I’m just going to go for it.
And hello (finally!) to the beginning of my creative process for Week in the Life, 2014. You can see all my Week in the Life posts that I have blogged to date here.
It’s taken a few weeks before I have begun to pull everything together creatively and into the album. Part of the reason for this was because I was waiting for my new printer to arrive but it was also due to the fact that I just needed a break. The week of capturing and documenting was intense so it was nice to take a step back and focus on other creative projects that I have
And welcome to week forty-five of my Project Life journey. No. I’m not up to date with the entire year. I’m working on the present weeks while also working backwards to fill in the gaps. As of today I have ten weeks to catch up on before this year has finished. (I said eight on my Instagram feed – you can find me under @polkadotcreative – I was wrong. Sorry!)
Continuing with a simplistic style and my enthusiasm (!!!) to get caught up I focused the design of the layout on the photos and what stories I wanted to tell about the moments captured in the photographs.
I am so excited that it is Friday. The kids and I are heading straight to the beach after school and I can’t wait. It is stinking hot here and so the beach is really the only place to be on a day such as this.
Welcome to week twenty-two of my Project Life journey. I now know that I am a true lover of simplicity when it comes to my Project Life layouts. I did a little test today while putting week twenty-two together. I pulled out a lot of embellishments I had in my stash along with some happy mail from the super creative and ever-so-generous Olya of Paint Paper Studio. I was
