Generally I cover a week in one or two pages, but for Christmas I went with the flow and made as many pages as necessary to cover all my favourite photos. I ended up with nine, including a full page 12×12 photo of New Year’s Eve.
[This is going to be a photo heavy post, so please click through if you’re interested.]
[Note: most photos were edited using the Pic Tap Go app on my iPhone first – it’s so dark here in winter that brightening and colour correcting are essential. Otherwise everything would come out dark orange and indiscernible!]
This first page isn’t very exciting to look at but covers the crazy-busy last week before we finished work for Christmas including a couple of text message conversations.Our first Christmas celebration, with one side of T’s family.
This is our ‘official’ New Year’s Eve photo with friends – we always make sure we get a group shot. I placed this on a 12×12 canvas with a wide border in Photoshop. Once I get the print, I’m planning to add some embellishments.
All the Project Life cards above are from the “Hello December” and “Seasonal Snapshot” kits in the app. I decided to have some fun in Photoshop with a couple of the photos and journaling cards – I’m really pleased with the results!
In these first two photos I layered a photo, with a drop shadow, and some text over the journaling cards.
This is my favourite! I made the speech bubble into a clipping mask for the photo and added a stroke plus journaling with a plain layer behind (to cover the dots and make it legible). Poor doggie – she didn’t like her Christmas present.
