December Daily™ 2011 | Day Twenty-One

Welcome to December Daily™ 2011 | Day Twenty-One.

An enlarged photo looking down at the picnic happening on the floor for page one and a collage of instagram images for page two.

What I liked most about this photo was that it included all three of us - Anna's head, Simon's feet and my feet.

The "hello today" was cut with the Silhouette (and will be available at Designer Digitals this weekend).

I journaled around the outside of the photo using an American Crafts Precision Pen (.03).

The second page is a collage of instagram images (I just combined them together in Photoshop). Peeks at things happening around here the last couple of days.

Along the edge I added some text pattern paper and a bit of scalloped ribbon.

    Hi. I love all the digital words Ali uses on her pages. Some she prints directly onto the photo and some she cuts with the Silhouette. Do I need Photoshop to use these great digitals on my photos, or is there another program or way to use them? Thx!

    I love photos taken looking down! Hope the picnic was fun. We have often have picnics in the lounge with Miss Three!
    I also love that you use photos from the month - not that specific date. This practice has inspired me to take a new approach to my December daily so I can finish it without worrying about not having enough ...
    thank you!
    Merry Christmas to you, Simon and Ana xxx

    Ali - I love that you use iPhone/instagram pics. I am a photography and that sometimes gets in the way. I

    Whoops...didn't mean to hit enter. What I wanted to say was, come Christmas time, I don't want to pic up my camera anymore because I just finished my busy season. But then, I never get pics of my family! I am going to do Project Life this year and will be using my iPhone more.

    Looks like a lot of fun around there! My kids used to love picnics in the livingroom, and tents set up too. Thanks for the memories. Great layout. :)

    Love this! I want to use some of my instagrams so it is great to see how you used yours. I just love Anna in that basket. It is just the cutest.

    Great layout! What size are those instagram pics? And were they taken with different filters?

    Instagram do you print? What size? Can't tell from the photo, but how is the quality? I have attempted to print some of mine and they come out a bit grainy.....I love them but wonder how I can improve their quality......just curious.

    Merry Christiams Ali!

    When you print the Instagram pictures do you just print them on a big page and cut them out? How big are those? I wanted to start using it but I wasn't sure how to print them!
