Welcome to December Daily® 2020 | Story Five.
Today's story is about making some magic + a slumber party in front of the tree in our living room. I had a ton of fun playing around with printing a photo + journaling on vellum and adding it into my album alongside a shaker pocket page I started in Product Play 4.
Let's start with the process video:
Now let's take a look at some images of the finished page:
Today's page includes a 3x8 image adhered to the back of Story Four and a fold-out vellum print that's attached to my shaker pocket page.
The photo of the cat in front of the tree was printed in black + white and is related to the story I'm telling today about our living room slumber party (it was taken earlier in the evening).
On top of the 3x8 photo I added a gold star from the Main Kit and a word phrase sticker.
For this page I knew I wanted to attach something to the original shaker pocket page. As I thought through options one of the things I decided to try was printing a photo + journaling on printable ink jet vellum and folding it in half. You could also easily just print something half the size if you wanted to not have a folding element or print on photo paper and cover the back with pattern paper. My vellum page measures 5 inches x 8.25 inches with an extra 1/2 inch left along the edge that is adhered inside my original shaker pocket page (check out the video to see how I adhered it together).
Before printing on vellum I added word art x 3 to my photo and adjusted the opacity of each word art set in Photoshop in order to get the ombre effect. The first one was about 60%, then 45%, and the third one was around 20%. I've included the word art for you to download below.
On the back side of the vellum I added two strips of star transparency (each one measured 2.5 inches x 8.25 inches). I did this rather than trying to fold the transparency. I both stapled and used a little bit of adhesive to hold those transparent strips in place. I love how the stars come up through the back of the vellum. To hold the folded portion down in my album I used a Tim Holtz Game Spinner. I also added a "twinkle" tab sticker to the bottom of the fold out.
This was really a fun one to play around with today! Hope you have a great weekend!
