Bec's Page Preparations.......

Oh what fun I've had with this 'flat' December Daily so far.
 My pages will be prepped as I go as I'm wanting to keep the pages in theme with what is happening in my photos.  I don't want to jump too far ahead.
But some pages I've been able to prep before hand. 

As the pages are 19cms x 29cms I've cut a heap of the papers down to 18cms x 28cms and covered the pages with a little of the Kraft peeking out. I haven't done every single page though. I've skipped some pages so I can create my own page with mixed media.  

I've inked the edges of the pages with a black ink. 

And some of the pages I've prepped with clear Gesso ready for some paint, ink, gelatos etc.

Here I've used a water soluble crayon and scribbled in 2 corners. 

I then wet it using a water spray bottle and moved it around with a brush.
I added some white water soluble crayon and some texture paste through a star stencil for some added interest. 

I noticed on this page it was curling because of all the wet medium, so I attached a piece of scrapbooking to the back to flatten it out. 

Added some stamping of Christmas words on the edge of some of the papers.......

Here I've used a white gelato through a circle stencil and used my finger (while the stencil was still down) to move the gelato around the inside of the stencil. 

I cut out 3 layers of a Christmas tree and plan on adding more detail to it soon. 

Again, some gelato through the star stencil and blended with my finger........................

How is everyone's preparations going?  We'd love to see them..............

Dont forget you can link your pre-planning or stash photos up
