For the last but not the least edition in my Project Life spree yesterday, I helped myself to a Rain Edition by Nisa Fiin. This one was my top choice among the four core kits left in the store, and although after unboxing all of them, this didn’t end up being my favorite among the four (surprisingly, Jade won that prize), it still has a lot of qualities I like in terms of design. The Rain Edition is seriously a useful and versatile addition to my new journal cards collection.
Upon opening this box of cards, and very excitedly at that, I was at once struck by how cohesive this collection is. Most of the patterns are nothing you haven’t seen before, especially when you’ve examined a number of Project Life core kits previously, but the design, prints and layouts are remarkably consistent and I feel that hardly any card is out of place.
The color palette was one of the reasons why the Rain Edition was among my top choices to purchase before I have opened any of the boxes (not that it mattered, I ended up hoarding anyway). I like the solid shades of bottle greens, blues and purples and earth browns. For me, these colors speak “I mean business” without the often-reputed drabness of greys and blacks. And with this newfound side hobby, I do.
