I’ve been very productive this month. I have completed March’s Project Life Lite, 10 (yes ten – it’s not a typo) pages for last year’s cruise album and a 12X12 page. So as not to overwhelm you with one mahoosive post, I will split them into smaller posts; starting with the sixes pages from day 1 in St Petersburgh, which I have been working on for a PHD (project half done) challenge.
This was the motivator for the trip. St P has been on my bucket list since before I even knew what a bucket list was. I wanted to see the Winter Palace, which is now home to The Hermitage Museum. Since we hadn’t organised our own visas we could only go ashore on one of the cruise tours, so I picked a guided museum tour.
I used my Counterfeit kit for these pages. I couldn’t find my gold ink for my title so I used Puddle Duck’s gold acrylic glitter paint instead. It took ages to dry and the coverage isn’t brilliant but I think it has turned out OK.
These pages were already full with photos. I took a few out and did a bit of re-arranging so that I could add title and journalling cards. I have more photos so I think I will also do some 12 X 12 LOs.
There were a choice of evening excursions or staying on board for a traditional Russia folkloric show. We went on the River Neva boat trip. The sunset was glorious. I love that it looks like the ship is on fire – silhouetted against the sunset.
