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.

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?

Bec's Days 21, 22, 23 & 24 ...............

Day 21..........
Some red & white striped background paper with some star stamping randomly placed over the background and used to ground the photo.
Some 'wishes' word stamping around the photo and some random strips of paper, words and ephemera placed around the photo and some wood veneer stars.

Day 22............
I didn't have any photos for Day 22 so decided to use the blank page to reminisce and remember special moments and highlights of the December days already gone. 

Day 23...........
The photos are again matted on black card to help pop from the Kraft page. I've used a little washi tape to adhere the photos to the page. Some journalling on a piece of patterned paper stuck behind the photo and some little chipboard stickers and wood veneer embellishments. 

Day 24...........
Day 24 is a double page spread. I only had 2 photos from Christmas Eve because I was so busy, but planning ahead wanted a double page spread for Christmas Day. 

So to fill the page opposite the photos I made some Christmas Trees with Gelatos and Texture paste.

I first randomly put some texture paste through a stencil all over both pages. 

 I drew some triangles to represent Christmas Tree shapes and filled them in with  a little Gelato in red, green and gold. I used my fingers to blend the Gelato to cover the tree. 

I did that in all 3 colours.

I then used the Christmas word stencil and blocked off the words I didn't want by using masking tape on the back over the words. Turned it the right way round and stamped through the stencil with a black ink pad randomly on the trees. 

 To help make the white texture paste in the trees more white after adding the Gelatos, I used a baby wipe and wiped in circular motions on the texture paste to remove the colour.
I then ended up with this.......................

 I hope your December Daily's are progressing well!
