Project Life Kick Off

20131229-200213.jpg

I’ve started getting my album and pages ready since Project Life starts this week. I’ve decided to do weekly layouts and add more pages for an individual day or week if there’s something super exciting going on. Likely several pages if we travel or have visitors. I want to try and keep it simple. We’ll see how it goes. I have a tendency to try and take on/over complicate projects which then leads to irritation and exhaustion followed by abandoning the project entirely. Simple = completion! I’m also planning to use as many existing supplies as I can and finally see what I’ve got on hand. I think I’m down by about 90% in terms of what I used to have after the first purge pre-Sophy when we converted extra room into the nursery then with the move to Seattle. I may breakout the rubber stamps. Old school!

I’ve also managed to get 2/3’s of my watercolor album pages painted with the base coat. I did the first couple with watercolor washes but it really was too much water and warped the pages. After that, I’ve stuck with acrylics and thinned with glazing liquid. No warping and much more vibrant color.

Now I just have to shake my latest illness, I’ve been sick nearly the entire time we’ve been here, and start planning some fun family goodness. If we’re all well, we may venture over to Vashon on the ferry. First ferry ride for everyone except me and I haven’t been on one since I was very little. May head back to Gasworks park. Sophy loved it and tons of photo ops!

Happy Pre-New Year!
