Yesterday I was inspired by Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas tutorials to play around with a couple things.
[ Christmas Red Stickles, Concerto Mask (this link also has a great video tutorial where Tim talks about working with the masks, prepping, what to do with them, and storage = super helpful), Brushed Courdory Distress Ink, Noah Alphabet Stamps from Studio Calico, Dot Stamp from Savvy Stamps, White Sharpie Poster Paint Pen ]
I enlarged a photo to 6 inches x 9 inches, printed it here at home on my HP Photosmart D7360, adhered it to the back of day one
and trimmed around the edge (the photos are glued back to back to
create the complete page). Journaled around the photo. More on the project featured in the photo soon.
For the second part of the spread (using the Scenic Route Kraft Photo Mattes as the base) I used Tim's Concerto Mask, Brushed Courdory Distress Ink, and a dot stamp to create the background. On top of that I stamped "on the 2nd of dec" and outlined each letter with the Sharpie Poster Paint Pen. Fun little experiment trying out the Stickles (great for holiday stuff) and I will definitely be using Tim's masks again.
Check out Tim's tutorial for more techniques involved in creating the second part of the spread (using the mask, the stickles, etc).
And here's the before:
