project life 2014 // week twenty five.

June 16 - June 22. I'm back, baby. Slowly but surely I will crank out the last eleven weeks of project life because I miss creating so, so much. (That, and all of the photos that have backed up are giving me anxiety.)What went on this week: This was a weird week for Max because he had a week of "pre-camp", which is basically just another week of school, but until 1:30 instead of 12:30. So it was a nice week for me having that extra hour at home and being able to eat lunch after 11:30. It's a beautiful thing. It started to get really warm, and I spent Saturday at the beach trying to work on my tan. Sunday morning I went to boozy brunch with friends from my old job, and we explored the city.About this spread: It's really hard going back this far and trying to remember what happened, but more than that, I have received Studio Calico kits from June through September now, which means soooooo much fun stuff to use, which makes things harder believe it or not. I ended up using simple cards and simple embellishments because my photos weren't too exciting for this week. I floated a wood veneer "June" in one of the empty pockets, and I'll have to figure out what I want to go in there for next week, or if I'll keep it in there backwards.Details + interesting tidbits: Another difficult thing about being this backed up is that if there was a week I didn't take many photos (like this one), it's a combination of few photos, not the greatest memory of what exactly happened, and too many cards and embellishments to choose from. So I decided to do something a little different with one of my photos of Lucas (below) and print one photo as a 12 x 4 to be split into two 6 x 4 photos. I love the way it turned out, especially how cool it looks having most of him in one of the photos and then just a small part of his head in the other. I think it came out really sweet, and though I've used this technique once before, this time around it's much more awesome.Photo breakdown: phone photos: 10 // canon t3 photos: 0 // polaroid photos: 0. Taken by me, the self-timer, and shutter remotes.
