December Daily® 2014 | Day Seventeen

Welcome to  December Daily® 2014 | Day Seventeen. 

One of my most favorite things in December is sitting in the living room in the dark with a fire in the fireplace and the lights on the tree glowing. I finally took advantage of that with Aaron and a bottle of wine last night and it was so, so great. It was one of those times, and one of those conversations, where I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be in the world. 

Here's a look at how I told the story for Day Seventeen: 

On my 4x6 photo of the fireplace I added "so loved this moment" which is digital word art from this set:  Everyday Life Cursive.

If you'd like to learn more about working with digital elements like that check out my  Getting Started series here

I love these bokeh plastic shapes from the kit this year. I used an ampersand earlier in the album with the drawing that Aaron and Anna did together so it seemed to fit that I would add the larger one here. I slipped it in the pocket and then attached the glitter star to the outside of the pocket (the brad goes through the page protector and the plastic ampersand). 

Just a quick little stitch of pattern paper added to the  journal card

    Have you any photography taking/editing tricks for dark photos? My attempts have just look, well, dark and black but yours looks awesome!

      Hi - this one was taken with my iPhone. In this case I wanted it to be really dark vs. light (and I was in the dark) so I used my finger to tap on the fire which made the rest of the scene even more dark. If I would have tapped on the darker parts it would have made the overall scene lighter.

      Thanks for your reply. The consideration for an iPhone upgrade is getting stronger and stronger :)

    Ali I love the way you tell your story. It has always felt so authentic and you share it with thousands of us. So happy your at a good place in your life.
    LOVING the bokeh shapes! Perfect to combine with the evening or city type photos. It's not something that I probably would've bought in the store, but thats whats great about a kit...explore new products and how to incorporate them.

    As I work on each Dec Daily page, I am coming to appreciate SIMPLE so much more plus the one or two photo days too. Even the no photos with only words. Thanks Ali for your guidance and example. It opens us all up for different possibilities.

    Ali love day 17. The picture of the fire is awesome. Mine are always too dark. Can you achieve this by using auto mode or do you need to shoot in manual mode? I'm in love with the Bokeh shapes. I'm normally all about color but this B&W shapes are beautiful in my album. Thanks for having such a nice variety of embellishments in this kit for us to try & play with.

      Hi - this one was actually with my iPhone and I intentionally made it even darker (by tapping my finger on the fire - if I would have tapped my finger on a darker area in the photo it would have lightened up the image).
