December Daily Days 16-20

And all of a sudden I'm in the final stretch of finishing my album. How that happened I literally have NO idea, but I ain't complaining. I've really really enjoyed pushing myself with stepping outside the box and trying new ideas this year - mainly with flip out pages.


DAY 16 - TAGS AND LAST DAY OF KINDER

So remember when I said tags would be a bit of a thing this year... point proven... Thought I would mix things up a bit this time and use a 3x8 pocket page with the tags for what ended up being a nice & easy page.

DAY 17- BROKEN BONE #3

You would've thought that after knee surgery for one kid, a smashed toe for the hubby (totally his fault mind you - when you've already got a broken toe DO NOT PLAY KICK THE BALL WITH THE DOG, this will result in accidentally kicking a wheely bin and further breaking it ), then on top of this we found out the 15yr old actually broke his wrist after falling off his bike at Bright - #WINNING... I didn't actually know what to do with this page, so just kept it aside till something came to me - or in my case till my sons scans came through and then it somehow just all came together (including the bones too -ha). When all else fails vellum you can't go wrong with journalling on vellum over a photo (totally me new go-to)

DAY 18 - SIGH...THE BIRTHDAY

So it's fair to say I'm not the biggest fan of my birthday... haven't totally got on board with the whole getting older thing (may need to work on that - in addition to being in more photos...not a fan of that either). So with those two limitations in mind it took a little brainstorming of what to document for today, but I am really happy with the end result. I printed an Ali freebie on some vellum (yep the vellum again...) and then on the back I used up some scraps to make circles and then journaled some things about me around some of them. Really loved this journalling idea and can guarantee you haven't seen the last of it (well you have for this year, but next year....!

DAY 19 - THE LITTLE THINGS

Again I used a 6x8 pocket page cut in half (possibly a sn@p one), added a little transparency flip, quote and tag to document this little ones love for details and drawing.

DAY 20 - SPINNING STARS AND STARING AT WALLS

I saw this idea popping up multiple times on Ali's facebook page and I knew it would be a matter of time till I caved to try it, but in my own way (of course). This was the most fidgety of all the pages but at the same time was great to see it all come together in the end. It's a tad hard to see in the photos but the wooden star in the middle of the pocket page is stuck to some string so when flipping the page over it spins.... or should spin.
