Well my 2 day migraine has finally subsided so I finally feel I can get another blog post up. Hope to catch up as the day goes on. I have already posted this on the Ali Edwards December Daily Facebook page and on instagram so I won’t go into too much detail except for perhaps the tree photo I received a lot of questions about.
Here is the start. For starters this page on the left is just a photo with holes punched into it. Once again no sleeve. The number 12, I really wanted on there using last years December Daily kit gold alphas. Of course I used these plenty last year so don’t have too many letters / numbers left. So to make this “12” I used a T for the 1 and the 2 is made up of a cut down Z & Q. Over the seam where they join I put a little chipboard “twelve” from this years kits.
I had a lot of questions about how I achieved the look of this tree and I am really sorry to disappoint but it was a complete accident. I think I pressed the shutter button as I was putting my camera away and this is what happened. Just for a reality check below is the actual photo I had on my camera.
A total mess right? Here comes the beauty of digital. I decided I really liked the tree shape on the left hand side and so I went ahead and used the clone tool in photoshop elements to take out all the other mess on the right side and make it a big black space. It’s not anything difficult or tricky to be honest.
It was super busy in the city and especially around the big christmas tree so out christmas tree photos were not awesome but I included them anyway. Again I used a leftover rubber tag from last years kit for the “Merry and bright” and on the back I put one of this year’s white ones. It makes a really cute tab I think.
Here is the other side of the little 3×8 insert and my final page for day 12.
When my headache finally went away I also decided to handwrite a little journalling on this page.
And that’s it for day 12.
Hope to have day 13 up soon
Thanks for coming along to see.
