Video | Using a Limited Color Scheme with Allison Waken

I love challenging myself with Project Life® spreads. It adds a bit of fun in while getting all those special days documented. I often stick with a limited color scheme in each spread depending on what's in my photos.

This spread is all about a whale watching trip we took in December. Obviously there is a lot of blue so I went with blue black/white (counting neutrals as 1) and yellow. Limiting your supplies can help speed up your process a bit while getting you to stretch your creativity.

Listen as I explain my process in this video!

Supplies: kits - Studio Calico Cirque Project Life® Kit, Cirque Printable Journal Cards In A Creative Bubble, Cirque Printable Journal Cards Hello Forever, 9x12" Page Protector 3B

    Fantastic video and walk through @AllisonWaken! I pretty much follow the exact same process, but I need to start using a ruler for my alphas like that! Great idea!

      I think that's what I've decided too - for this class I plan to stick with an 8.5x11 theme and see where I go from there :)
