Goodness, I feel like all I’ve been doing in my spare time these last few weeks has been Project Life. Because August was such a busy month with the workshop, I decided I would leave the boys’ albums till this month. This means I’ve been catching up on two months’ worth of photos and quotes for each of the boys in the last few weeks. This was no small task, considering I had to squeeze it in amidst the busyness of family life. I even found myself asking Rick at least a few times along the way: “Do you really think the boys will appreciate all this when they are older?” And every single time, he would look me in the eye and say, “Yes. I really do.” Isn’t he just the most wonderful husband a memory keeping girl can ask for? Anyway, as you may have noticed, I am no longer posting Project Life updates in chronological order as I’ve been finding that too restrictive. Also, larger images are back – you simply have to click on the image you wish to see more clearly.
What happened in Week 32?
This was the week I needed to send off our workshop booklet to print in order to have it arrive on time. The deadline was Tuesday afternoon and I literally did not sleep on Monday night. I was such a zombie for those two days. Thankfully, super-helpful grandparents were here to help out with the boys while I locked myself up in my studio and forced myself to write and lay up pages at super-human speed. Seriously, the only effective antidote to my procrastination is a looming deadline, it seems. It was also the week that Patrick died on Offspring, sending an entire nation of women into shock.
How were the photos taken and processed?
All photos were taken on my iPhone 4S and processed with the VSCO Cam app.
Favourite photo(s) from Week 35?
I love the photos of Pete and Jamie. It’s such a cute sequence of shots and I feel like it really captures their innocence, their curiosity and their friendship. I also adore the photo of Jamie before his afternoon nap (the first photo on the second page), as the interplay of light and shadow is just perfect. You can see the photo more clearly in this post.
Number of pages and inserts?
Just the usual two page layout – no inserts!
I love the greys and whites with pops of blue throughout the spread. You get the sense that it’s still winter but with little hints of spring. The image sequence on the second page is also a favourite. Try this easy technique if you need to fill up pockets – it’s such a fun way to capture the essence of a relationship.
