April Project Life Spread

I realise I am way WAY behind on my Project Life making, and even further behind in sharing my pages here. But I'll do what I can over the next week so catch up a little.


This double page spread appeared in the latest FREE issue of Jot Magazine (which you can download here) and even though I made it ages ago I still really love it.


I think I love the colours most of all. The mix of green and gold and pink is something I haven't used before, and the addition of lots of black and white is now becoming a staple for me after creating this page and noticing the high impact it creates.


The cards are a mix of Studio Calico's April Film Club Documenter Kit, and a set of Amy Tangerine's Better Together cards from her Project Life Core Kit that I got from the Spotlight event when she last visited Australia. I think they work quite well together.



When it comes to embellishments in my Project Life album I'm trying to keep them as flat as possible, but I still love adding a bit of texture, so these puffy stickers, gold rubons and corkboard stickers did the trick nicely on the first page.


I've then also thrown in a few extra embellishments like these diamond chipboard shapes from a much older Studio Calico scrapbook kit in order to make a bit of an effort to use up some stash.
I've got lots of them left over which meant I didn't really know what to do with them in the first place, but I like the extra colour they add here without having to really mean anything at all ;-)



Of course with all my pages I always make sure to leave enough space to add in the stories I want to tell, and since I find handwriting so much easier, I stick with that! Filling in all possible gaps with jouranling!


Anyone else as far behind as I am?!
