Project Life–Week 9
The first of March is always a happy day for me because we say ‘Farewell Summer’. I decided to celebrate that occasion by making my own title card to welcome Autumn.
I know Summer lovers don’t like Autumn because it marks the beginning of shorter days, cooler weather, and ultimately Winter, but the days we get in the lead up to Winter are so glorious and wonderful. The clear skies, the gentle cool breeze, green reappearing in the garden, the colours, the smoky drives in the nearby Dandenongs, pots of tea on the deck.. I could go on and on.. but I’ll spare you.
This weeks photos were numerous and a bit dark so I broke it all up using some digi cards I made especially for this layout using my grid pattern and some water colour brushes. I hand stamped them after printing using Kaisercraft’s Captured Moments stamps.
I also made the ‘quotable Elijah’ card and plan to use it more often to keep track of some of the cute things he comes out with. You might not be able to read it, but my favourite this week was “The pig has a tail. It’s very cute. Like me!”
There’s not really much else to say about this layout. The photo collage at top left is my month’s photo a day from the Collect App. I haven’t been printing the individual cards from Collect yet as I’m never too keen when I use them in a layout, although a fellow PLifer cuts some of the white space off then mounts them on paper which looked really good, so perhaps I’ll try that soon.
Journal cards, title card, quotable card are all made by me
Kaisercraft paper (the everything is lovely card)
The weather card was from The Age newspaper.
