welcome to the 2011 edition of the pate december daily.
this project is now in it's fourth year.
and it brings with it such a wonderful tradition of story telling and moments to remember.
RhonnaDESIGNS as the base of this year's book.
so far the use of the christmas junque kit+the number junque kit is setting the stage for the design.
the cover makes use of 7gypsies book board covered in canvas.
an old label chipboard shape from jennie bowlin dabbed in silver frames a swatch of christmas junque background paper.
the 'noel' is an ornament found at hobby lobby.
the number stickers are making memories.
the front cover is kept simple on purpose. i love how it invites you in.
corrugated chipboard is found on the inside covers.
hoping that works...it is already making the book a little thick.
the first page is printed out Christmas junque background paper+christmas junque pieces.
using a sewn doily, jenni bowlin crepe paper, a felt snowflake, and a ruffled book paper trim, the opening page sets the stage for what i hope is a bit of a whimsical book celebrating our christmas traditions.
heck...i'm just thrilled i get to finally use a bit of blue in my christmas this year...
the foundation pages go as follows.
1. embellished page.
2. page divider. sometimes this will be on a transparency. sometimes not. you see the number junque #1 is layered on music paper that is attached to a 2 1/2 by 8 piece of transparency.
3. digital paper page will house photo(s) or journaling.
eager to share more.
hoping you will stop by again as i continue putting this together.
and i hope you are inspired by RhonnaDESIGNS as it is her work is what is making this a fabulous book.
also...if you did not stop by yesterday to check out creative team tuesday on rhonna's blog, hope you do today. the creative team is at it again with all kinds of creations.
