Because this week was also Week in the Life, which is going in a separate album, I took a different direction than usual. Luckily, my Project Life runs Sunday to Saturday and Week in the Life ran Monday to Sunday. So I decided to make this whole weekly spread just cover one day: Sunday, April 22.
On the 22nd, we took a photo walk through our neighborhood. I love that this spread documents where we live, because the flavor of a neighborhood is something that can change over time, but seems too everyday to document. I’m sure our kids will love looking back on this and remembering the things they see on our long walks!
Because I’m working on a whole album this week, I kept this spread super simple. The left page is just three vertical 4×6 photos and two horizontal 4×6 photos. Only one photo has any embellishment at all: just a bit of journaling.
On the top, I used the back of the paper from last week’s Project Life. I adhered the photos to a strip of bright pink paper (by Hambly) and held them in the pocket with the paperclip that held in a love letter from last week. This way I’m using both sides of the patterned paper and I won’t forget about the love letter slipped in there.
The right side of the spread is just a huge collage of 3×2 photos from our walk glued in a loose grid on iridescent paper (also from Hambly). The washi tape is from Target ($4 for four rolls!).
This spread was really visual. Not a lot of words needed!
Jonas really wanted to help me take pictures.
I like that this spread captured something I wouldn’t normally include in Project Life. I’m usually so focused on the stuff we do that it can be hard to capture the things that are continuing forces in our life. I can’t wait to go dive into my Week in the Life album now!
Are you doing Project Life and Week in the Life? How did you choose to do both in one week?
