Due to the way life is working out this year I won't get to see my eldest and granddaughter for Christmas so they visited for a little bit last Monday and I gave my Granddaughter some of her presents, we saved one for her to open with Papa Bear on her sleep over Thursday. I really wanted to get this into my December Daily but with the chaos of packing and purging to move I haven't done a single day in it, not even typed up my journaling since we got word about the move. I decided to make a 4 x 8 1/4 inch tip in page for my DD, that way it can go anywhere in the TN insert when I get it done
I started by cutting down some white cardstock to size and inking the edge with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, then to ensure the Distress Ink wouldn't blend with my next stage I took it outside and gave it a coat of Crystal Kote Fixative.
I wanted to add some blue and pink to the background and decided using my very old sprays would be a great idea. So I just sprayed a assortment of blue, pink, yellow and silver sprays onto the cardstock, dabbing it with a cloth if it was too much.Since Miss E's presents from us were Frozen based fine motor skill and sensory play I wanted it to feel like colourful snow.
I then took it outside and gave it a coat of Chrystal Kote Gloss Varnish to add to the shine of the shimmer some of the sprays had. Since Miss E's presents from us were Frozen based fine motor skill and sensory play I wanted it to feel like colourful snow.
I adhered my photos to some white cardstock with Helmar Acid Free Glue.
I then adhered my matted photos to my background along with some lemon tissue paper (Miss E was wearing lemon) and some die cuts, including a Labrador as our Lab cross rescue came in during the unwrapping and was all over my daughter with lots of loving doggy behaviour while she was watching Miss E unwrap, so this die cut was a great prompt to help me remember when I type up the journaling.
I am really happy with how this tip in has turned out and can't wait to get it into my December Daily happening after the move.
Are you doing a December Daily type project this year? I would love to check it out so please let me know in the comments.
