Week in the Life 2010

Opener

THE BASICS : 

My first year of completing WITL, I used my DSLR and a journal to write down some thoughts on the go. I didn’t have any specific ideas of what to capture, I just went about my day taking pictures.

THE DESIGN PLAN: 

I created 14 – 8.5x 11 pages, two dedicated to each day. The “opening pages” had an enlarged photo as well as a reflections from  the day. The second page, aka the “collage page” included some static and action photos. Although I didn’t write a ton of detail, my main goal was just to get something, – anything really – down on paper. Check. Check. As you can tell, I used a repeating design through out using similar product over and over. Clean and simple: Have a look!

REFLECTIONS: 

Super cool to see what we look liked four years ago. Fun fact: We no longer live in the house on Lee Avenue – nor do I have the time to lounge on the couch but I still have that blue sweater! This first year, I uploaded my unedited pictures to a developer and printed the summary pages at home. It was the big first scrapbook project that I completed. Hooray!

Comments

  1. awesome!! I think I had the same ‘enlargement/collage’ concept for the days back then. its also the first thing I think of when I think WITL. 🙂 I love your pages!
