It's been an off couple of days. I woke up on Monday morning, reaching for my camera to document another day. Then I remembered Week in the Life is over. I didn't take a single picture Monday and couldn't shake the weird nagging feeling that I was supposed to be taking pictures. It wasn't until Tuesday evening that I remembered Project 365. Oops!! After last week's intense picture taking, I can't get back in the groove. Hopefully I will settle back into the routine soon!
Right now I'm working on putting together our Week in the Life album, which has been fun but sloooow. I'm creating a series of pages for Monday. Then once I have everything set the way I'd like it to look, I'll be repeating for Tuesday-Sunday. I'm close to finishing up Monday and hope to share it soon. For now the only part that's totally done is my daily opening template.
Every day will start with a page like this, with my journaling notes on the left and the hubby's journaling notes on the right. I started with Ali's Story of Today overlays from 2008, but then tweaked them with some of her newer products. I'm using Ali's hand drawn days + months brushes to mark the day of the week. I used her April overlays for the date stamp at the bottom. And for the title, I picked up a really cool set of everyday phrases brushes from Ali that I know will be great for other projects, too.
This will be a hybrid album, so the opening pages are going to be printed out and I'll be adding a bit of embellishment for texture. This page is by far the most advanced thing I've ever done in Photoshop. I've enjoyed stretching myself to try and make things I don't know how to make. It can be frustrating, but very rewarding in the end!
Besides Week in the Life being over, I think the other thing that's throwing me off is that Something from Almost Nothing also wrapped up. And I have no classes lined up next. I think I've become used to having a class or two going at a time to keep me inspired. Must figure out what class to take next! It look like there are some new Big Picture Scrapbooking classes starting soon. And I'm excited to hear what Shimelle has in the works next.
Are you signed up for any classes for the next few months? I'd love to hear what you're taking and any recommendations!
