I’m officially starting Project Life-style scrapbooking this year! I’m planning to do monthly spreads because weekly would be too much for me to keep up with….and I just love 12×12’s too much to part with them 🙂 Here’s the first page of my January spread:
I’m using Studio Calico’s Blue Note Project Life main kit for this month plus some extras from my stash. My absolute favorite card in the kit is the watercolor month card I used as my title. I altered the card using gelatos to color in the spaces and number stamps to fill in the dates.
I managed to finish a few more pages in the mini album today. I’m about a quarter of the way done with just a couple of more days to finish everything…
Sorry about the angle of the photo! I didn’t realize my iPhone wasn’t directly over the pages until I went to crop/edit the photos. It’s too dark to retake the pictures now, but I think you get the gist. There’s a combination of DIY and Glitter Thickers on the left page. I used aqua metallic Gelatos (Faber-Castell) mixed with water to add color to the white DIY Thickers (Studio Calico). The same Gelatos were used to paint over the wood veneer flowers (Citrus Twist Kit exclusive) on the right-hand page.
Unfortunately, my StazOn ink pad is still more than a bit dry and I used it to stamp on the hexagon-shaped wood veneers anyways. These wood veneers are also a Citrus Twist Kit exclusive. The images are legible but definitely faded. I really need to buy a re-inker! I hand-stitched a frame around the photo with baker’s twine to add texture.
On a side note, I just discovered my layout was chosen as a Top 3 for the Life. Paper. Scrapbook. December Sketch Challenge 🙂 You can find the layout here. Thanks for looking! And now back to hustling more mini book pages!
