Project Life, Weeks 11 and 12

Project Life by Rhonda Mason/Pink Ronnie (www.pinkronnie.com)

It’s pouring down rain here in Sydney right now. My hands have been cold all day, and I can’t seem to warm them up. Rick’s picking up the two older boys from school and preschool, while the other two are tucked up all warm and cosy in their beds. My parents should be arriving any time now to spend Friday evenings with us. Rick and I are truly blessed to have parents who not only live in Sydney but who are also happy to visit us on a regular basis. I never had the chance to get to know my own grandparents since they lived in a different country, so I count it a blessing that my children have such a wonderful relationship with all four of their grandparents.

Anyway, I hope this week has been a lovely one for your all, and I look forward to sharing more stories with you next week. In the meantime, grab a hot cup of tea (as always) and I hope you enjoy these pages from our family album… (You can click on each image for a larger version.)

What happened in Weeks 11 and 12?
I de-cluttered my entire office in Week 11, and Jamie celebrated his third birthday in Week 12. (Why are all my children growing up at some crazy exponential rate that I can’t seem to keep up with?)

How were the photos taken and processed?
All photos were taken on my Fujifilm x100s and processed with VSCO Film. You can read more about how I edit my photos here.

Favourite photos from Weeks 11 and 12?
For Week 11, I love the photo of the four boys on our stripy rug in the bottom left hand corner. It was one of those candid shots which speaks volumes about their personalities and what family life looks like in our household. I also adore the photo of Bear examining the baby monitor (top left of the right hand page) – the light is so beautiful in that shot. The capture of Pete helping Nan out with Sunday’s coffee (bottom right-hand corner) is also very sweet. For Week 12, the photo of the sunset on Jamie’s birthday (bottom right hand of the last page) is my favourite, along with the photo of Jamie with all four of his grandparents. Such precious times.

Number of extra pages and inserts?
I had a 6×12 insert for both weeks, with written details of each day’s events. I also had about half a dozen 8×10 inserts for Week 12, showcasing photos from Jamie’s birthday celebration.

Overall thoughts?
The colours on each of the page flow well together, and I’m glad I managed to squeeze in so many shots of people across the four pages. I also really like my still life shots, which add just the right amount of variation and breathing room to the layouts.

Supplies used?
Becky Higgins Design A page protector; Kodak 210gsm glossy premium photo paper. All photos printed on the Canon MG6360 Pixma using genuine Canon ink.

It’s very nice, as always :) I was just thinking that you probably need a very-very-wide-angled lens to take ONE picture of all your memory-keeping projects!

Too funny Nynke, I probably would…

Beautiful pages Ronnie…and I love the mix of children and still life home shots too, it’s a lovely combination. Have a lovely weekend….I’m feeling cold too and I’m about to go and have a shower to warm myself up. We’ve had 25 degree days in Brisbane but the temp has dropped and I’m cold. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

It’s the same here in Sydney, Kathy. The temp’s just dropped significantly in the last couple of days.

Lovely spreads Ronnie!
You have inspired me so much in my memory keeping! I love playing with paper, but as I usually have lots of pictures, I love to see how you just work with that. I also started a book especially for my son, with just loads of pictures and stories about him and what he does. I hope he and your boys will appreciate our effeorts later…but otherwise I am pretty sure their girlfriends will :)

Hi Ronnie…your photos are just gorgeous and capture your family so perfectly. I love how you document each week- I so wish I made the time to do that. And I love that included amongst shots of big and little people are also snippets of the day, home life and special treasures. I need to allocate a day (or two), some coffee and lots of quiet time to just read through your blog and all your tips of the family documenting trade…well done. So pleased I dicovered your blog xxx

I always feel so inspired by your Project Life pages! Mine are very different than yours, I use photos but also a lot of journalling by hand. So for almost no ‘filler cards’ unless I make them myself. I have recently bought just a couple of journalling cards to experiment with. I love how your photos always go together so well. I struggle with that. I always wonder how you make that happen!

Dear Ronnie, the first time I paid attention to your blog was because of your project life pages. Your photos and how your pages come together are always stunning and your layouts are absolutely unique in project life land. I love the photo with Jamie and his grandparents. It’s a real gift to have the four grandparents close to your family and that they love to take care for your boys.

Hi Ronnie,
Love your pages, great photos and mood.
Would love to see you do a feature on your inserts for your project life posts, I don’t think you usually photograph those with your posts so I’m curious as to how you lay those out… Love the design tips!

Hello Sarah,
I’ve been wanting to do that for a while, just need to work out the best way to do it.
