I wasn't quite sure about that large acrylic wording in the main Galileo Project Life kit. I'm not one to put such thick pieces of embellishing in my own Project Life but after placing it on a 6x8 photo, my doubt quickly faded. The cork die cut numbers were my very favorite item…you'll notice I used in several places.
That photo of the 3 of us, working together is one of my favorites. They make the best office mates. :)
Donuts and moons and ice cream….all the things I love. That little rabbit holding an ice cream cone illustrated by Lizzie Mackay is so damn cute I can't stand it.
I had the pleasure of designing a few pieces for the main kit including the donut sticky note pad shown on the moon card. This accompanied a little journaling and a some photos about my new morning routine.
Here's a more subtle color palette compared to the spread I did with the main kit. My photos were all pretty neutral with dark browns, creams and whites so I complimented them with matching journal cards and artwork. For me, cards should always compliment, not compete.
I finally got my hands on the Uni-Ball gel pen in white. I had really bad luck with white gel pens in the past so I was a bit reluctant on purchasing but alas! A white pen that actually works! You can see how I used it on the black heart journal card.
EGGS! I do love a good runny egg with lot's of pepper served with buttery toast. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. You can see how I translated my egg obsession with the card above. I chose to stamp the egg doodle from the Food No-No's stamp set designed by Hello Forever onto a journal card from the Shooting Star add on that had a sprinkling of tiny black dots (pepper!). I used the Onyx Versafine + Color theory ink pad in Lemon Zest and paired the pattern with the EATING stamp from the Venus foodie inspired add on.
How do you choose to coordinate your photos with journal cards? Does the photo dictate the direction you'll go or is it the design of a particular journal card?
