Here’s something that I’ve learnt about myself in the last month or so: when I’m focused on a deadline, I tend to take very uninspiring photos which in turn directly impacts on my Project Life layouts. (Is it the same for you guys?) As a result, this week, I’ve been making a much more conscious effort to step back from the busyness in order to see the beauty amongst the chaos.
Another thing I’ve learnt: Rick’s iPhone 5 camera is way clearer than my iPhone 4S camera! Either that, or I’ve scratched my lens pretty badly over this last year. In any case, all Project Life layout photos will be brought to you courtesy of Rick’s iPhone from here on. Oh, and larger images are back! Just click on a photo to see a slightly bigger version…
What happened in Week 35?
This was the last week of winter here in Australia. It was also the week after my first Life:Captured workshop with Trish. I was completely shattered but so happy to return to our regular family routine back at home. In spite of the exhaustion, I soaked up every moment with the boys as best as I could. I took things slowly and mostly stayed at home, emerging on Friday to head to Dee Why for a nice morning off together.
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?
My favourite photo would be the one I used in the title card. It was taken on Wednesday, when it was just Jamie, Edward and myself at home. I was lying on the floor in exhaustion (I kid you not) and Jamie had gone behind the couch to choose a book to read from the bookcase. It was too great a frame to miss – seriously love those little, chubby legs of his. A close second would be the shot of Edward just chilling on my studio couch while Jamie flipped through our family album.
Number of pages and inserts?
Just the usual two page layout, with an 8×10 insert. The 8×10 insert (not shown here) contained a photo of Jamie and Edward sitting in their high chairs together (very cute) and another photo of Jamie sitting on the floor of my studio whilst cutting up my old photos. (Yes, I’m training him up early in the art of Project Lifing!)
I adore the bright colours in this layout. Just looking at it makes me cheerful. Together with the photos of the poppies, this spread clearly signals the last week of winter and the beginning of spring…
