Welcome to Story #12 in my December Daily® album for 2021.
I took a little break from this project on Sunday and was happy to be back at it again today with a page/story documenting some things I'm thankful for right now. Stories of gratitude is a topic that I return to again and again in my memory keeping. The act of writing down what we are thankful for, even in challenging times (and often especially then), is a practice I hope I never get tired of - even when it's a simple list like this one.
Let's dive into the video:
And here's a look at the spread in and out of my album:
I'm a huge fan of using shapes as a home for my content and I really kept that top of mind when I was putting together patterns for the papers this year.
For today's story I decided to use the speech bubbles on the vellum as a home for twelve gratitudes. I tested out a POSCA White Paint Pen on one of the other pieces of vellum and was so excited to see that it worked. I knew that this wasn't going to be a page with a lot of long journaling and instead I was going to be looking to fill up the speech bubbles with some words.
Along with the white paint pen I stamped and/or embossed "so thankful" using one of the stamps from the December Daily® Phrases Stamp Set. I used a bright green embossing powder for some of the darker speech bubbles and then used black StazOn ink for the lighter ones. I also added some of the puffy star stickers that were on a sheet from the Advent Calendar.
Honestly, it's almost always a good idea to include some gratitudes. Loving this as my story for today.
