2018 Project Life | Week Three + A Giveaway

It’s been a hot minute since I shared a Project Life spread. It’s not that I don’t have any done, because I do! However, when I’m developing new online classes, I get tunnel vision. It is all I can focus on. But that’s ok, because I. Love. It. It’s my passion. My only complaint is that I wish creating content for memory keeping was my full-time 9-5 job instead of having to go into an office everyday! Ha!

While we are on the subject on new classes, registration for Art of the Apps Monthly Membership will open on Monday, April 23. You can find all of the information by clicking here. But I want to give you a chance to win an Art of the Apps v. 1 Scholarship before registration opens! The Giveaway is actually running on my @pixelstopages Instagram account.

Now on to Project Life. Below is the double-page spread for Week Three.

Have you tried those Coconut Clusters or Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Snappers you see in the layout below? Don’t. Just don’t even tempt yourself, because there is no turning back.

What I like about this layout is the pop of yellow used in the cards and stickers. None of the photos have yellow in them. But the first card I chose to place in the layout was the journal card with the yellow diamond border because I thought it worked well with the Letterfolk Letterboard with Jack Sparrow’s quote. That card was the catalyst in choosing the other cards and elements for the spread. That yellow sticker I placed on my computer screen in the lower left corner was actually blue. I changed the color in Affinity Photo.

Any text added to the Photos was done in Affinity. Now these pages were done well before Free Form Text was a paid addition to the Project Life App. Even though I love the ability to add text to photos directly in the PL App, in some situations I will probably still add text to photos in Affinity because I like to use my own fonts. What about you? Will you still use other apps to add text to your photos? Or will you stick with Project Life only?
