December Daily® 2021 | Story 14

Welcome to Story #14 in my December Daily® album for 2021. 

For today's story I'm using the prompt "this year" as I tell the story of our tree and some things I'm looking forward to over the next week. 

Let's dive into the video: 

And here's a look at the spread in and out of my album: 

Today's story is built on a 10 inch x 8 inch foundation. In Photoshop I created a new 10 inch x 8 inch canvas and added my photo and typed up my journaling before printing on my  Epson XP15000 printer. I love simple grid foundations like this one that has a specific home for a photo, a specific home for journaling, and a specific home for some playful embellishments. 

Included in this year's  Main Kit are a set of painted wood veneer houses. Today I had an idea to flip those over and add some Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs (similar) on top to customize the look (a nice option for anyone who wants a more muted color scheme or if you are simply looking for something else to play around with). You could also totally add the rub ons on top of the main side of the houses too or you could paint them or you could add ribbon or you could layer a bunch of washi (so many options). 

After adding the rub ons I added washi tape along the bottom and ran one of the canvas strips through my sewing machine before adhering the whole piece with red line tape on top of some gold dot vellum

Words + a photo + a couple embellishments for the win!

    I love your tree ! it looks real, like a tree you see in the woods, not the big ones they sell that have too many branches. I must say I wasn't sure about those houses on the other side, but you made magic :) They look great !

    Love this! And I love your tree! I've been thinking the same thing about wanting a tree that has more space - this one is gorgeous! And I love your page - I have to admit - I wasn't sure where the whole house with words thing was going to end up - but I love how it turned out!

    You have to “fluff” the branches of fake tress so they fill in the empty spaces. But I guess if you like them all squished so you can see the ornaments better that’s an option they also offer. ❤️

      This is one that when you fluff/open the branches (we did ~ they aren’t squished) there is still space like some natural trees especially here in the Northwest - which is what I wanted.

      Interesting. Do you know what kind of trees they are (like, the name)? I’ve never seen trees like that.
