Project Life 2014 | Weeks 5 + 6

Oh boy, I’m already starting to fall behind on this year’s project life.

But in an attempt to catch up, I am squeezing in two fun weeks of PL today!  I’m also lumping weeks 5 + 6 together in hopes that week 6 will make up for a duddy semi-picture-less week 5. I’ll be the first to admit that week 5 is pretty crappy looking.  It’s a nice reminder that I really need to work on taking more/better photos of our “everyday” life or I’ll have nothing to work with come layout time.

With that being said, let’s start with week 6 since it’s quite a bit prettier than week 5. 😉

And, back to Week 5. I made due with my limited photo selection for the week, by using one main image for the right side layout.

*products used: lots of ali edwards brushes (always); cut and paste from Amy Tangerine; a few things from the Coral digital PL kit, and the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party pack. (I get zero kickbacks from any of these links, just fyi.)

*project life is a memory-keeping system + lifestyle. In 2014, i’m creating a digital spread for every week of the year. You can view all of my project life posts here.

>>Thanks for visiting LAHOWIND sailing blog! We’d love for you to get to know us and follow our story as we attempt to navigate a whole new world of sailing and cruise the Bahamas + Caribbean.

Your site is so beautiful – seriously. Stunning photos, lovely, bright colors – I can’t stop ogling it. As you get underway I’m sure you’ll have no trouble finding gigs on the move (if it’s something you’re after). What camera do you shoot with? Your site was recommended on a couple other blogs I read – looking forward to following along on your adventure!

All the best,
SV Serenity

Thank you so much Harmony!!! :) “Documenting” our journey my favorite part of what we are doing. I did a blog post a little while back where I explained a lot of my photo gear/tips, that sort of thing… I typically always use my “big” camera (Canon 7D) along with my fav lens (Canon 24-70 f2.8) for my blog photos. Although, I also kinda just love iPhone photos too (easier, no fuss). I’m a big fan of your blog too and already “like” your Facebook page. Maybe one day our paths will cross while out sailing. :) Stay in touch! -Kim

Thanks for the link! You’re worse than I am in terms of a camera collection :). I keep adding to my arsenal (I always find a good reason for why I ABSOLUTELY need that new camera). I love photography, but if there’s one thing I’ve discovered from the past two years of taking thousands of photos it’s that I still have a ton to learn. It was helpful to read your tips and tricks – I’m always filing away new things to try out the next time I go for a walk with my camera. Also, sounds AWESOME. I’ve been dreaming of a macro, but have a hard time justifying the expense. Would be nice to do a test drive before I commit. Anyway, happy sailing and happy shooting!
