So, this Project Life spread is documenting my fave drinks right now.
I love matcha green tea. When I happen to have a can of coconut milk in the house I sneak it into my tea to create a latte. We don't really drink regular milk in my house anymore and almond milk does not go well with the matcha, so creamy coconut is my new favourite.
OpMy go to drink at Starbucks used to always be a chai latte, however, now that I have cut way back on sugar in my life, I am trying to make different choices. At one point I had switched to the Tazo Chai tea bag in my latte and ordered it 'unsweetened' but then Starbucks switched to the Teavana 'Oprah' Chai and I don't like it. There is definitely a fake sweetener in there somewhere. So I now order an unsweetened green tea bag latte or the matcha green tea latte (but I overheard the baristas talking one day and they were saying that there is still a bit of sweetener added into the matcha powder). Why, oh why is sugar so prevalent in our food when we know it is so bad for us...?
Anyway, I was happy to get a pink sleeve on my cup because Valentine's Day was long behind us when I returned from Spain.
In the All Things Considered digital kit there was the cutest little polaroid-type frame, so I printed that out with a fun yellow patterned paper and tucked my photo behind it. This made my two photos relatively the same size. I also chose to leave an extra wide white border on the sides of the Starbucks photo to help balance the photos on the two pages.
I knew I wanted to embellish both photos with these great words from the kit, so they went on next. I don't mind that they are not at the same level, I was more concerned that they covered the bottom of each photo but still extended over the sides favourably and did not intercept my photos in awkward places.
Next, I added the green flag, which pulls the touch of green from the green tea latte photo. Of course, then I went looking for something to pull from the pink Starbucks sleeve but the closest I could come up with from this kit was the dotted orange tab in the top left. I think it works just fine.
Finally, I added the date stamp on the top of the right photo to balance out the longer journaling below the left photo.
Maybe you think I am crazy, but that's my strategy with this layout!
