Hello Week Five!
I went back to a full page spread this week, after trying out a half page per week for the first four weeks. I just had too many pictures to stick to my half page format. Loved putting this week together.
I put in the pictures of my kids on the bottom left early in the week, and that established my color theme of the week. I made a point of trying to keep red in my photos as much as I could, along with neutrals. Not all of the photos cooperated, but overall I like how the color theme came through a bit.
I got out the paints one day and made a little card to slide in, with my color theme of the week in mind. It was just for fun and to get myself back in the habit of getting the paints out every so often.
I am loving my new Underwood typewriter, a new addition to our household, thanks to my 98 year old great uncle, who gave it to me as a gift. It seemed to go well with the quote I had (from Elise's downloadable collection) so I put them side by side.
I used a week in review card again to summarize the key happenings of the week.
I particularly loved the photo of Andrew eating ice cream outside of Foster's Freeze. He loves this place, and it's a town landmark. I took a few shots of him eating the ice cream up close, with nothing recognizable in the background, but then I thought it would be more fun to get him in front of the shop. Sometimes having a sense of place makes all the difference.
I'm enjoying this week's return to a more traditional documentation of the whole family's week, vs the more personal approach I'd taken in the first 4 weeks. I may go back and forth between these approaches, until one settles. I love the flexibility of this project. I can do with it what I want to each week.
On to Week Six!
