It's week thirty-six and I love this project.
Week of : September 2 - September 8.
What happened this week? We were home. My mom came down on Friday. I took photos to document a day in the life (which I will be sharing on the blog tomorrow).
Anything special in the spread? I included an insert for the day in the life photos and breakdown. I displayed the photos in the same format that I used in April. The page protectors are coin protector pocket pages and they work great to hold 2x2 photos.
I had more photos and text this time around so I ended up using 60 pockets total. I trimmed the pocket pages down a bit so they held 15 squares on each side and then used two pages. I printed an iPhoto contact sheet for the 2x2 photos. It's the easiest way to get them the perfect size. This video from a few years ago talks about how I do this. To make them fit in the coin pockets, I print 3 photos across.
Techniques this week : Really nothing special except that insert. And of course using white space on photos for journaling.
Overall thoughts : I got my mom in a photo this week - check plus. :)
Ratio of iPhone photos to "real camera" photos : 3 to 34. (All of the DITL photos were with my DSLR.)
Tools used : Design A pocket pages, coin protector pocket page, Fiskars corner rounder, Zig Millenium pen, Rotatrim paper trimmer, Office Depot date stamp, staz-on ink. All photos were printed at home on my HP Photosmart 2575 printer on Office Depot semi-gloss photo paper.Project Life is a memory-keeping system created by Becky Higgins. I use photos, text and stuff to document our life weekly. You can see all the posts from 2012 here and 2013 here. Do you have a question about how I am tackling this project (including anything about the photos)? Check here.
