What you do makes a difference.
So think carefully
what kind of difference
you want to make.
My Week in the Life 2011's album
*waving both hands*
It seems not long ago when
When it's actually 2 months ago.
I used an 8R size picture of the day
for the opening of every day.
And the format for all
seven days' opening pages are the same.
The name of the day using black chipboard,
'remember this' 7 gypsies red tag,
the date at the bottom corner,
and the number of the day at the top corner.
And I love it.
Here is Day One :
As I planned,
the colors I used in this album
was kept to minimum.
Many pictures can be converted to BW easily,
while some seem have to remain with colors
to get the feel of the room,
or the activity,
or of course, the memories.
My trick was to frame the photos
and all the ephemera at the sleeves
using simple basic triangle framing.
Here you can see my left page
is framed with the red color.
Try to look the same technique
at my other pages, will you?
Here is Day Two :
Here is Day Three :
Yes, here is the same technique,
at my right page,
using the turquoise color.
Here is Day Four :
Here is Day Five :
Here is Day Six :
And here is Day Seven,
the last day :
Using this kind of sleeves' album
is really really gave me a tremendous help
to finish the album quickly
by slip all the photos without gluing too much.
I can add more memories to it,
tickets, drawing, school newsletters,
tags, bills, recipes, love letter from the kids,
even shopping bags (yes, cool one only)
that really coming from our life
right here and now.
Again, thanks Ali for the inspiration!
My fourth Week in the Life album
will be joining the others on the shelves.
Happily and proudly.
Such life's treasure.
