So.. I don't normally do this, but I re-did my 2014 Project Life title page. I really hated my first attempt. I don't know why but I just hated it. I finished up my 2013 album this weekend (for the most part) and finally cracked open my new binder and couldn't even look at it. How dramatic, right? But I figured such a strong reaction meant that I should redo it.
I think the biggest problem was that I had used up a bunch of scraps to throw together my original page. This new one was a little more thought out and designed. I purposefully chose each paper and embellishment and now, my title page is much more me and represents my style right now.
I kept the yellow/gray/gold M*B card from my original page and used that as my jumping off point. I added in black & white to make the yellow pop even more.
I was also very inspired by Geralyn Sy's title page with the 2x2" pockets. I wasn't in the mood to hand-sew (and don't have a sewing machine) so I adhered the tiles to a 4x6" card. Actually, they probably around 1.75x1.75". I used one grid for me and one grid at the bottom for Billy.
Here are the bottom pockets of the page. As I mentioned, I liked the (smaller than) 2x2" squares so I repeated that here. I replaced the bottom row of squares with a banner and some gold glitter Thickers. The 'DOPE' wood veneer card is a Two Peas Exclusive. I think the word dope as an adjective is hilarious.
MUCH BETTER. I am really happy I re-did my title page. I found myself looking at it over and over again. It's much better to love something you made than to be repulsed by it. That's what I always say. I think I'll end on those words of wisdom.
