Christmas Wreath..........................

When I can see a project planned out to the end in my head, I have to keep going with that and nothing else until it's finished.
So here is the culprit this week........................

Approximately 35 rolled roses in the wreath.
Boy that was time consuming and testing of my patience. But I'm happy with the end result and it's going proudly on the front door soon.
It was soooooo easy though. Very soothing and relaxing doing it too.
The papers were only 1 sided, so I glimmer misted the backs with a red (can't remember the name right now) and the same with the front to get a deep red on the patterned side. The leaves were folded and inked to get a vein like look in them. I just added string pearls for a bit of highlight.
If you do have a go at doing one of these, leave me a link so I can have a sticky beak.
Oh and if you are doing a December Daily or something similar, leave a link for that too, so I can have a look.
Thanks heaps for all the lovely comments.
I love reading them!!
I will be back soon with some other things I've been doing. But first I have to make Tana's dresses that have been sitting there cut and ready to be sewn.
Have a great week!!!

December Daily Album.....................................

This is what has been keeping me busy.

I didn't go with traditional papers, but I fell in love with the Webster's Pages papers. And to be honest, their papers make it so much easier because they are already like a collage.

Few things I haven't done, but I will do them once I put the photos in, and they are:

*dates/numbers (so I can switch the pages around to suit the amount of photos on any day)
*the backs of the pages. I don't know if I will cover them or maybe enlarge a favourite photo of the day to a 6x8 and put it on them or maybe leave it for journalling or even include them in the days.
*sewing (I'll do it after the photos are put in.
I have only shown you some pages, not all of them. But so far I have 21 pages. I would also like to use a photo for a page (6x4) and journal & embellish on top of the photo.
Still undecided with a few things.

Stamped transparency

Another stamped transparency

These long pages I am thinking of using to journal about gifts received for the kids or I might use tags tucked into a pocket on a back page.

So there's my album.
I have never done one before but have always wanted to.
I just can't wait to start it!!
Come on December!!!
