Project Life 2013: Documenting a weekend road trip


Last year we drove up north to spend a weekend in San Francisco. Day One of the trip was shared here. Since that post, I’ve made some changes to the spread and also finally finished Day Two.

Originally, this was the spread for day one, a printed digital layout paired with a collage of 12 photos.


Here’s Day One (redone).  I swapped out the layout for an almost full photo spread. I like the flow of this better. The white space in the large scenic photo is a nice contrast to the grouping of smaller square photos.



Minimal embellishments here. Both the interstate tag and the “travel” definition are from my Road Trip Kit. I might come back to this page to add journaling to the bottom left photo.


Day 2 follows the same collage + large photo formula.




The collages were created in photoshop using press plate no. 37 and sent to Persnickety Prints for printing.

Do you have a go to formula for documenting vacations?

Fabulous pages Liz! My hesitancy about doing pocket scrapping is my love of BIG photos. You just solved the problem! Woot!

How do you manage the large photo format? It looks like math is involved, and I just can’t figure out the simplest formula. Thanks!
