Welcome to December Daily® 2020 | Story Eight.
Today's story is a little bit of writing about my own working life in December.
Today's video is full of me making mistakes + trying different things + muttering to myself +finally embracing the end result. I know I'm not alone in running into issues when creating + I want to make sure you guys know I'm right there with you! I hope you find a few moments to laugh during the video.
Let's start with the process video:
Now let's take a look at my finished page via photos:
This simple page surprisingly took me way longer than I expected. My initial plan didn't work (you'll see that in the video) so I pivoted and ended up with a page that focuses more than anything on the words + photos.
I've got a small laser printer here at home and I set up my page with the "working" word art on top (download available for you below). After printing with the laser printer I ran the title through the Minc machine with green foil and then I ran the page with the title back through the printer to add my journaling.
Along the edge I added one of the Fabric Half-Circle phrases.
My photo was printed to 6 inches x 3 inches and adhered along the bottom of the journaling. Between the photo and journaling I used red line tape to adhere my light green pom trim on top.
I cut off one of the poms and used green embroidery floss to attach one of the gold stars from the Main Kit and a Crate Paper Charm.
You could also print both your title + journaling at the same time before running it through a Minc machine. I decided I just wanted the title foiled.
And in the end:
I cut the poms off. Ha. Yep. That's how it all went down today.
