December Daily® 2020 | Story Thirteen

I've really been looking forward to adding a story to this page ever since putting it together for the December Daily® Product Play 4 workshop (if you are new to December Daily® at this point in the season my workshops are always still available for you if you are looking for more fun ideas for your stories - they are go at your own pace). One of the themes for 2020 was texture and it was so fun to create these texture ("frosting") circles using texture paste and paired them with circles cut from Main Kit journaling cards. 

Here's a look at how this one came together:

Now let's take a closer look via images:

For today's story I paired the back of Day 12 (half circle page) with a transparent page which is home to six circles. Just like yesterday I printed my photo sized 8.25 x 8.25 before trimming it to fit the half circle shape. On top of that half circle I used a Precision Pen to write a couple details about our cupcake decorating. 

On the second page (an original foundation page) I used Willamette Ink + an upper case alpha stamp to add "cup cake" to the top circle. I also used a number stamp set red tinsel embossing powder to create the 13 on another circle. 

On the bottom journaling circle I printed out a 1.75 inch circle and added it on top using foam adhesive

Totally love how this one turned out!

    Wow that pre-made page works perfectly with your photo. Just goes to show that having the work done ahead of time can inspire great photos/stories.

    Ali, how did you photograph the cupcakes without creating a shadow.? Did you use studio lights? Thank you, so beautiful.

      I heavily edited it. I used the Dodge tool in Photoshop to lighten up even the areas with shadows. I thought about bringing it upstairs under the lights but didn't end up doing that.

      Ali, thank you! I'll try the Dodge Tool. I have taken Through the Lens and both Hybrid classes and loved them and learned so much. I think it would be awesome if could offer a class on taking indoor photos, e.g. shooting from your desk, shooting on white board, creating Bokah effect, shooting from above, the possibilities are endless. It would be cool also to do some post-processing like the Dodge tool or Image Adjustments in photoshop (I learned that in one of the Hybrid classes). I would be the first to enroll in such a class. Thank you for all the joy your classes/blog offer us on any given day but especially during these most difficult times we are facing.

    Hi Ali,
    Do you have PSE templates for basic circle shapes (3", 2", 1.75"...)? I would love to print more circle photos but I always have difficulties to get them like I want.
    Thank you.

    Love today's page... just FYI the distress powder has crystals in it to make it more distressed. The idea is once it is heat set to rub it with your finger to move the crystals and create a distressed powder look that has variations of color and texture. Fun stuff.
