A Week in the Life with Ali Edwards

"A Week in the Life"
May 2016


Every year, Ali Edwards has a project called "A Week in the Life" which I FINALLY got to participate in.  I stayed very simple and documented my day to day stuff.  Nobody's life is perfect.  Often times we see happy people posting happy pictures on social media.  I was very candid in my little book.  I have anxiety and depression, I am working on my marriage, and I have some disabilities.


I used a 4x4 2 ring binder album (http://www.studiocalico.com/shop/sale/amelia-4x4-black-handbook), 4x4 protector sheets, and black 4x4 squares of scrapbook paper to make my album.

 I use my Fujifilm Instax camera and 5 cartridges of film (http://www.amazon.com/Fuji-96090-Instax-Instant-Sheet/dp/B004U7JYXS?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00).

I used a combination of Sakura Gelli Roll Pens (http://www.amazon.com/Sakura-38176-10-Piece-Assorted-Moonlight/dp/B000GZOCA8/ref=sr_1_1?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1463405114&sr=1-1&keywords=sakura+gelly+roll+pens)

and Posca Paint Pens (http://www.amazon.com/Uni-posca-Paint-Marker-Pen-PC-5M15C/dp/B001ANVDMU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1463405182&sr=8-1&keywords=posca+paint+pens)

I used a simple glue stick to adhere the photos to the black paper.
