An extra page of vanilla cardstock added to the book.
Using the Acme Lablemaker that Mandy used HERE as part of the journalling. I've also coloured in the birdie tag that was gifted to me through the year with water colour pencils.
I decided to add an extra page in between Days 10 and 11 to include more Christmas Carols and to also separate the photos on each of the days so that they don't stick together over time.
The back of the in between page with another Christmas song printed onto cardstock and attached to the randomly stamped background.
and then Day 11.
Using black and white photos (both printed on the one 4 x 6 photo paper) I've used patterned paper and vanilla cardstock to matt them.
The nice little edge on the side there was actually the cut off strip on the bottom of some scrap patterned paper that I had and I thought that might make an edge for a flip over page. I've used water colour pencils to colour parts of the pattern on the border of this page and added some little paper corners to all four corners to give the page some strength.
and it flips up so that I was able to add another photo and journalling underneath.
I've used a double page here........colouring the picture (or parts of the picture) with water colour pencils again. AND I wondered how long it would take before I pulled out the gesso and painted/covered some of my little book. The gesso was applied under the photos to make them and the journalling stand out a little better. Some stamped leaves and red berries (made with a hole punch) were added to the pages as well as ric rac top and bottom. Also a strip of patterned paper was added to the side edges for strength. These little pages are way more fragile than I first thought.
How is everyone going with their December Dailys? I'm keeping up fairly well so far......we'll see how it goes as we get closer to Christmas.
We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us
We'd love to see them!
