Back with an update on my December documenting album, (you can see the first post here) the daily documenting of December for our family. While I've fallen behind on my Project Life album, I find one spread a day for the first 25 days of December to be pretty easy to keep up with...and fun to boot. As I mentioned before, I've got the December Memories kit by Gossamer Blue in my got little hands. I'm using other items too, like this free downloadable from Ali Edwards shown above, it was Ali that originated the whole December Daily album concept. Here it is on the back of my title page:
I wrote on the downloadable in PhotoShop and printed it on scrapbook paper. I'll be fixing that spelling error as soon as this post is published. ;)
One of my favorite things about an album like this or a travel journal is the layers that you can see waiting for discovery.
The first of December is my sweet Ali's birthday. She was at school, so I had her send me photos of the celebrating she did with friends, since we had celebrated with her before it was December. I sewed the cut out photo onto my tester paper from stamp carving. It was definitely inspired by seeing Tina Azmus's page of her son, seen here.
Here's my first day spread:
I'm getting downright adventuresome with my digital explorations, buying printables from both One Little Bird and Paislee Press and putting them right to use. The birthday stuff is from One Little Bird.
I backed the traingle stamp paper with scrapbook paper and used a few more triangles as trees. Here's the spread for day 2:
That's a transparency sheet on the right with Be Very Merry and the cute deer from the kit on top. It was because I saw Maria's darling Merry Every Thing seen here.
Had I known that my white pen was going to behaving badly, I would have digitally added that too! Oh well, not important enough to reprint, it'll be all the same at the end.
Here's the spread for day three. My lamenting about my lack of holiday spirit on the left:
More see through elements. Fun to be catching up. Hope to get caught up to date and share a few more December spreads soon! xo
