Greetings everyone! I will be sharing my Project Life process this week. My process is separated into two main step. Step 1 – I work in Lightroom . Step 2 – after I get everything printed out, I working on the physical products 🙂
My digital process
I will start off by looking through the most recent digital supplies I have in my Lightroom Digital Scrapbook Catalogue (I have a separate catalogue for my personal photos which is a catalogue containing about 80k photos) Next, I flag the files which I’m interested to use this week. Using Lightroom to filter the photos to only see those flagged files allow me to visually see my color choices, and decide whether it suits the color of my photos I’m going to use on this spread. It is like a mood board.
My photos are organised by dates. This allow me to choose from the left hand panel the dates of the photos I want to look at. I go through the same flagging process to pick out photos I’m going to scrapbook for this week.
These are the photos I’m going to use.
Finally I will edit the photos using free Lightroom presets , free VSCO presets for Lightroom or Radlab. I totally love the versatility and the ease of using presets and love the slider and that these are reversible edits.
After adding journaling to the cards using simple Photoshop template that I already done up for my weekly use (I choose my favorite fonts and formatted the paragraphs such that it fits my journaling cards) , the last step is to actually do the printing. I print journaling cards on Neenah White card stock as they are a true white color and makes hybrid scrapbooking PRETTIER! I then print my photos using semi-gloss photo paper by canon or Luster paper by Ilford . I’m currently using the Canon Pixma iP8770 printer which I absolutely love!
And that’s it for today! Hope you enjoy reading my digital process . In my next post, I shall share what I do with my physical products now that I have them all printed.
