Jane's Days 25 - 28


Day 25 - the big one!


 Here's how the page began ....


and developed ....


and finished up. No room for journalling ....


so I made another.


And developed it like this.


But no time for journalling now, so it stayed like this:


I decided to let the photos tell their own story.


There is also a page protector in between with some extra pics - sharing some of them on my blog - here.


Day 26


Lots of stamping on this page - a poinsettia from Uniko and trees and sentiments from Clearly Besotted plus the journal card made using Katie Pertiet Antibes digi elements.


I added some colour to the poinsettia and some vertical strips of washi to liven things up a bit.


A quick and simple digi photo page - maybe tomorrow things will calm down!


Day 27


At last a quiet peaceful day without visitors and time to catch up a bit on my album. I coloured some wooden snowflakes and die cut a leafy strip.


I added my journalling, some ribbon strips and a tree from Simple Stories Mistletoe Kisses bits & pieces ephemera and thought I was done ...


.... but the pink dots on the tree were bothering me, so I covered them with brown pearls and green gems.  And discovered I was no where near finished! Word stickers, picture stickers, red gems and a coating of Wink of Stella to the snowflakes seemed like essential additions.


As this was a nothing much happening sort of day I decided to use all my Advent photo challenge pics in a digi collage.


Day 28


As I love it so much I used the reindeer die again - first appearance was on day 1.


 I added some digi word strips, some ribbon and enamel dots.


Then came the journalling and word stickers - chosen because it was such a chillly frosty but bright and sparkly day. I noticed that the reindeer was disappearing into the background a bit so I outlined it with a brown promarker.


 The photo is up on Lincoln castle wall with the Victorian prison, ancient keep and cathedral in the background just seconds before we began a perilously slippery descent.  The boys thought this enormous fun, but it had me gripping the rail tightly with both hands!


We'd love you to share all your process and December Daily journey with us

  1. That reindeer die is just the thing! Can't beat a good deer die;) And I really like the random washi strips idea.....AND that collage with all those wee photos....ADORE! I'm guessing you used photoshop. I really need to come visit you to learn how to use it! Fantastic! And I had to laugh at you covering the pink Chrissy spots AND Wink of Stella ROCKS almost as much as the MISTI, I reckon!!!! Gorgeous pages, again :)

  2. I think your photos do speak for themselves - your photography is fabulous. Love the little boy stamp with the presents.. sooo cute! Collage of photos is a great idea and that deer diecut - the pattern paper - very effective. Yep. had a giggle too at covering the pink spots!!!
