How I document my summer

Please don’t think this is how it should be done. This is just a way of journaling that works for me. Like I said before: there is no right or wrong.

I’ve been inspired by Project life. I like those journalingcards. I like how easy it is to add photo’s. I don’t like the amount of money it costs. Overall it might not be that expensive, but I like it as cheap as possible. I like to make my own stuff and knowing myself I will only use half of those decks. So I took a binder I already owned, I took 3 kinds of plastic sleeves I already owned and started working with what I had.

When I have a large image I cut it into fitting pieces. Photo’s are simply printed in a small size. A few lines and a date stamp will finish it. The large image is something I collected that day. Don’t forget to save your busticket, flyers and other freebies to use in you documentation.

I want to be able to open it easily, so I will not put it in a plastic sleeve. I am a proud owner of an Instax mini camera, it’s like a polaroid, but different brand and smaller photo’s. They are a little smaller than atc and I should glue them. Again I added a date and wrote a little about that day.

This is an old painting I had laying around, I added a quote to it and it fit right in my summer journal. Quotes are also a great thing to collect and add to your journal.

Downside of these plastic sleeves is that there is a front and back and not always I need the unfilled format for my next documentation. Therefor my documentation isn’t a 100% chronological, but I don’t mind that. I do try to keep months together.
