Hi guys! Today I am sharing my process for creating my 2017 Project Life Week 17 layout. The hybrid layout was created in Photoshop CC using Sahlin Studio Clean Lined Templates and Paislee Press Weekend Vibes. My digital process is in the video here!
Now for the fun part, the embellishing!
Let's take a look at the finished layout:
Our stories for this week included giving up cable for Netflix, progress in the yard in which the hosta have taken over, organizing our chaotic candy cabinet, and a sweet boy with his bunny.
The Weekend Vibes collection is particularly neutral with great little pops of color, so the punch in my layout comes from the bright happy colors in the Freckled Fawn kit! The transparent numbers absolutely had to be used!
When I designed this card in Photoshop, I left blank space on purpose so I could add physical embellishments. I used the stamps as a home base for the hearts. I also added washi tape above the word strips along with the chipboard word strips.
For the right hand side I started with photos of our messy candy cabinet and I loved this word art from Paislee Press, chaotic and messy, to tie it all together. I also was so in love with these sunglasses from Freckled Fawn that I just had to use them too! So I just did a fun little cluster right on top of the photo of my flowers.
And the photos of our messy candy stash: do you ever have places in your house that just bug the crap out of you and finally you tackle it and get control over the situation?! Well that was our candy situation until this week! Now everyone has their own little bucket and that is it. Whew!
I loved capturing this adorable photo of Addison with the bunny after giving the bunny his bath and I love that Project Life still gives a wonderful place for photos like this. I love how these moments fit into the context of the whole week.
Another favorite capture: Alan cooking dinner for everybody. He does a large majority of the cooking in our house and it means the world to me. I am so incredibly thankful for all the hard work he does to keep our house going!
