Hey PopFizz Fanatics, today I'm showing you a recent Project Life spread I did using the Colors of the Wind kit. I have been so slack with doing project life lately but really wanted to get this big moment recorded. So I started with pulling out all the supplies needed.
- Colors of The Wind Papers
- Tombow tape runner
- Colors of the Wind sticky notes
- Colors of the Wind diecut feathers
- Canon Selphy Printer
- Various Ephemera
First thing to do was print off my photos, I knew from a journal lay out I wanted the main picture to be tight crop of me so I needed to print out the photo full size and cut it down, so I printed one picture 3X4 and the other 4X6. Afte rthat I needed to choose a layout type and trim down the papers.
I went with what is probably my favorite layout, the 2 3X4 over one 4X6 spread. I was really enjoying the oranges and the contrast with the purples and greens in this kit so chose papers that played with that.
Now onto my first card. I wanted to start with that nice big orange watercolor card. I knew I wanted the front facing photo there but wasn't sure what else to do there, then I remembered these cute silver glitter instax style frames I got from Freckled Fawn, the rest kind of just flowed from there. The gold foil washi from the kit was just perfect for this. Also the feather die cuts really pulled the whole look together.
Next was the top right card, the water colour with white feather outline. This was for my other photo and I just really kinda smashed things on it. This black and white striped washi was key to this page, helping pick up the referee motif in the pictures. These gold foil puffy hearts came in a previous PFP kit and I use them way more than I ever thought I would. I really like how this card looks.
Now for the final card, the one for the journaling. I knew when I started out with this Project Life spread that all the cards were busy. That's why I got out the sticky notes, they made a simple and perfect journaling spot that fit so well into the cards. I then dug through my big box of alpha stickers and pulled together these two for the title. After a few touches of gold and some journaling it was done.
Now to put them all together in the pockets of the lay out. Now you'll notice some changes to each of the cards. This always happens. I'm looking at the spread and noticing things like that the bottom card is completely devoid of green so a few puffy stickers and it feels more balanced. I found this phrase sticker for the top card which I liked and added a bit more white which I felt was needed. and finally I remembered the little feather charm which was a perfect addition to the bottom of the journal card.
