Decided to just jump in & start somewhere on #weekinthelife
So I decided to just jump on it and get started somewhere on my Week in the Life album. I bought the digital templates by Ali Edwards available at Designer Digitals and after searching through all the digital paper I already own I decided to use the Bluebells and Daffodils paper back by Jesse Edwards also available from Designer Digitals. I liked the muted color palette and the spring flower designs which go well with the Spring time frame of this album. It also has grey in it and that way I can use the grey Ali's tags in the templates without having to buy the full set up tags with the PSD files so I can change the color -- plus I like the grey. I figure my photos have a lot of color so the paper doesn't need to and won't compete with the photos. At this point I don't know if I am going to do an all digital album or if I am going to use baseball card protectors so that I can include some actual paper emphemera -- maybe I will do that for some days where I have a lot of stuff and not for other days? I don't need to decide now. I will probably also do what Ali describes in her blog post Bringing it all Together - The Words, and do a variety of things with my journaling and include some whole pages of journaling too.
So, I am trying to remember to not make this too complicated and enjoy the process -- plus there's no deadline! I'll be posting my pages on Flickr as I finish them. Just go to my Flickr photostream -- or check the left of this blog for my Flickr slideshow.
