WE'RE DOING DECEMBER! Whether you pre-plan your December Daily or create as you go along in the Christmas month; make your own covers or decorate ready-made ones, use Project Life style with plastic sleeves and pockets or create your own pages. Maybe you havent made one before and ask 'I cant think what I'd fill a page with everyday?' We'll help with that! Whatever your style we'd love to see it! Here you will find a seasonal blog open from 1st November to 31st January each year. We hope that this will become a wonderful resource of sharing, prompts and inspiration. What is a December Daily? Its a mini-album recording your daily memories capturing the spirit of December. Bring it out with your decorations each year and remember Christmases past. Scroll down on the right side bar and you will find past December Daily albums of each Designer. Check their 'journey' link too, this will give you some great tips and scroll a little further down and you will see the albums categorised into types for easier searching :) Now - 'Let's December Daily'!

Deb's December Daily Art Journal Plans.

This year I am doing my December Daily in a 'Dylusions Creative Journal'.  The plan is not to get too weighed down in heavy mixed media pages (we'll see what happens there  lol), although I do want to have a play with different techniques, either ones I have used before or new ones I want to try out.  Most of all I want it to be achievable - a small creative journal (5x8) with easy fun pages.

and the inside ........ (I'm sure the envelope will come in very handy too)

For most days, I will use a double page and as this journal has more pages than I will need for December, I plan on including some random Christmas related pages throughout the album eg. a Christmas song, a quote, a childhood memory, a recipe and certainly still be including photos but there will be days I'd like to try to create things about my day in an "arty" sort of way with no photo.  Now, I'm no artist but I'm really looking forward to trying this out this year.

At the moment, my desk is looking pretty clean but it won't stay that way for long.  Last year, like Mandy, Julie and Bec,  I had all my chosen papers and embellishments collected together in a box to work from.  That's not really going to work for me this year as I don't plan on using much in the way of papers or embellishments.

So, come the 1st December, out will come the gesso, mists, paints, watercolours, stamps and anything else that might work on my pages.  Certainly there will be some up-cycling happening too I would imagine.
A very different December Daily for me........
Last year I did pastels and this year I plan to brighten things up a little.


  1. Sounds incredibly arty to me, I know I'm going to be in awe, so looking forward to seeing how your album shapes up.

  2. OOoh Deb, I cant wait until I see this progress either! I'm with Jane, I reckon I'll be in awe too! Love that you'll use a mixture of approaches to you Dec Daily. It really sounds like a LOT of fun!!

  3. Sounds awesome deb. Can't wait to see more of it.


Any thoughts? We'd love to know them, please share.....
