Adding beach photos to my Project Life album is probably my favorite. I love the blues, greys and whites together. And the photos are just so serene and calming. When you have the perfect journaling cards to go along with them, well...let's just say that's a big win-win to me (thank you Gossamer Blue and Peppermint Granburg)!!
As soon as I opened this month's kits from Gossamer Blue, I knew I wanted to use the journaling cards from One Little Bird to document our day trip to the beach last month. I kept my page pretty simple, as you can see, and let my photos speak for themselves. I know I've said this a zillion times, but I am so glad I stuck with full sized photos this year (4x6 or 3x4). It has made my process so much easier!!
The left side of my spread is very simple...nothing fancy at all. Pictures and journaling cards. All of these photos were of one day, so I didn't really feel the need to add a lot of words to my spread.
On this side of the spread, I added more photos and several thoughts about our day. I created a little title card "WB" using some Studio Calico wood veneer alpha, a piece of trimmed bokeh vellum from the Webster's Pages Ocean Melody kit (yep...bokeh vellum!! Super love!) and a typed place/date.
Here are a few close up shots of this spread:
There is really nothing spectacular to this at all, I know. It took me about 15 minutes to put this whole spread together (not including printing my photos). I love spreads like this, though. Not just the beach photos, but the ease of the process. Project Life shouldn't be difficult or challenging or crazy. You can totally make it that way if you want to try something different or spice things up a little, but it shouldn't be complicated. Creating a spread like this reminds me to enjoy the process a little more!!
