Those stripes again – Currently: journaling cards for Project Life

1 Comment

So sometimes, I make something and I file it away (mentally – I’m not organized enough to actually file it, just ask poor DH) with the idea to update it at a later date.  Then I get a new idea and I follow thru on that instead. But I always watch the things that get downloaded the most, as it gives me an idea of what people like, and (I hope) use.  So I know there aren’t a lot of Buckaroo Banzai fans out there LOL!  And I also know that the CURRENTLY I AM: cards I did a while back have remained popular.

Now, part of what I like about the look of a Project Life page is that there is a riot of colour, a mix of styles and it all just reminds me of a patchwork quilt.  But it takes a particular skill to mix things up so they look good.  And not everyone is comfortable with that.

I have a colour palette that I tend to use.  One thing I like about Intaglio is the colour wells – I do wish there were more of them!

I tend to make columns or blocks of colours – that first one is one of the PL card sets, I can’t recall which at the moment – so I can use the same colour sets again and again.  There are actually little groups within that grid that *I* recognize (I can see Honey, for sure.) So while not all my sets work perfectly together, there will be repeated colours that I hope make them more likely to “go” IYKWIM.

THIS time I thought I would combine two sets.  So I took the idea of the Currently cards (another set here) and the striped background from the recent 2016 calendar set, and came up with this:

They have faint dotted lines to keep your journaling in line.

There are some of both orientation, and a mix of colours.

You can download the two-page PDF  here. Hopefully you will find them useful.  And any feedback or thoughts on sets that work together would be interesting.

I did get a specific request for a Spanish 2016 calendar, but with a Sunday start date (not the usual Monday one) so will add that as soon as I do the Monday one to match.  Probably do a French set at some point as well.  So if that is something you want again for 2016, watch this space!
