My Project Life journey #1

I'm working on a Project Life album documenting my niece's first year. Having a lot of fun getting back into scrapbooking. And pocket scrapbooking is certainly faster and less intimidating that working on 12 x 12 layouts. I'm using the Baby neutral kit, supplemented by Maggie Holmes' Flea Market mini kit and other supplies from my stash. I've also been using some digital products, designing my own journaling and fill cards and printing them out at home.

This has finally been my motivation to get to grips with Photoshop Elements (after about 4 years!) and I'm definitely tempted to do more digital scrapbooking in the future. I've found some great resources online (including lots of free stuff) and hope to share some favourite links as I go along.

Here are the first couple of pages - the title and early photos.



I'm keeping it pretty simple with flattish layers. I like the look of some cohesion with repeated elements such as similar stickers, wash tape, wood embellishments and so on. 

Decided to do computer journaling as I don't like my handwriting much. I'm using three main fonts - Clementine Sketch, Pacifico and Typewriter Scribbled.
