our week #4 // met my girlfriend, haewan, for brunch in the poolside cabanas at avalon beverly hills. though the week started out in the high 70s and incredibly sunny, it ended in rain so we warmed up with vietnamese on friday night. i worked a ton, gearing up for an event i produced in week 5.
i mean, it's not revolutionary, but new takes on this project will help me keep it interesting, week after week.
the stuff: not much this week! scott headed out to his favorite local record store and i asked him to bring a business card back. i included it, along with the names of the four vinyl records he bought that day.
the journaling: still totally in love with the 3x4" cards for capturing little journaling snippets. this time: a quote from my yoga teacher and our order when we went out for vietnamese food.
a detail to share: this is the first time i've used an instagram without re-cropping it to fit a 3x4". i really loved this photo because it meant something to me personally. it totally captures the appearance and feeling of a place that is very much a part of my life right now. i tried using the original as a 4x6" photo, but the colors were too dark and it didn't work in the spread. so instead of nixing it, i used a smaller version. mounted on mint green cardstock it feels much lighter and actually gives the photo more focus than when i tried to blow it up. i just added a little label, but i'll use square instagrams again to allow for more journaling there too.
supplies: his & hers stamps by elise blaha cripe; becky higgins' design A photo pocket protectors; corner rounder by fiskers; fonts include HoneyScript, Jenna Sue and Bebas Neue.
