Julie's Number Tags and Day 1



 

 So far so good, I've been able to scrap my daily page each night.
Not too sure just how long that will last though but am hoping to keep it up for a while yet.

Before I show you my Day 1 page,  I thought I'd share how
 to create these number tags for each page below.



Step 1
 I pulled out one of my favorite dies to use as the base of my number tags. I then stamped the numbers with paint, doodled around them once they were dry and added in a doodled border before inking the edges.




Step 2
 Next I added in a holly vine stamp and then dusted off my water colour pencils to add in some detail to the stamping and a water coloured edge.





Step 3
 It was time to pull out some of my little words and letters as well as some twine to add a little more detail to some of the number tags. The others I will add to when I put them into my December daily.





 Day 1 with it's number 1 tag.
 Day one is always about putting up our Xmas trees.  
The crochet white doily at the bottom of the tree acts as the perfect Christmas tree skirt.
The background is Ranger Dauber paint and a Purple Onion holly spray stamp.





The 'hoot hoot hoot' title is a play on words as my tree has an owl theme.



Please pop in HERE and share with us your
December Daily 2014 album progress.

  2. Super fun page, love the idea of a themed tree and all the doodling on the numbers - matches in so well with that doodled looking holly stamp. I too always keep up well at the beginning of December, then miss one day and the backlog begins!
