December Daily® 2017 | Day 11

Welcome to December Daily® 2017 | Day 11. 

Here is a look at this page from my Foundation Pages post

This page was built as part of my December Daily® Product Play Workshop. That workshop includes a Silhouette file and a digital layered template to use for this page idea. I used the layered PSD file to mask my photos and print the 1/2 circle out. 

Here is how the story ended up looking in my album: 

The journaling page actually started out with a black pen on white cardstock (you can view my entire process in the video overview below). As I was working on it I decided I wanted to try something a little different so I scanned in what I had hand-drawn on the 1/2 circle, traced it using Illustrator, and then changed the hand-drawn portions to white and added a black background. 

The photo circle was created using a layered PSD file (from the Product Play workshop). I masked two photos into the 1/2 circle shape, printed on photo paper, and then added a gold foil strip from the main kit. 

To learn more about using digital products in paper projects check out my Hybrid workshop

You could definitely try this with black cardstock and a white pen (see my white pen recommendations here). I printed mine on photo paper because I like the weight and the gloss. 

To add a date I used one of the black chipboard numbers and this stamp set from Jasmine Jones and some gold embossing powder

Here's a look outside the album: 

I so love how this turned out!

    Wow! This turned out so cool. Would you be willing to share the trace settings you used in Illustrator? Thanks for the inspiration!

    I know it's too late to change it now, but "nutcracker" is spelled wrong. ☺

    Love how this turned out! Any tips for getting the powder to slide easily out of the Snappy tray? I just got one and my powder gets stuck when I pour it out. Yours always seems to slide smoothly. Thank you!

      Sometimes mine gets stuck in there and I just wipe out the excess. I'm also not super careful with it and have had cross contamination happen in the past (glitter getting into other colors, etc).

    I love your adventurous / risky product play for this December Daily! So unique and fun! I was wondering, did you hand-cut the photo of Anna and Nutcracker dancers, or cut it with the Silhouette? I know Silhouette has a feature called print and cut, but I think you need the Designer Edition to get this feature. You print the photo from within Silhouette turning the registration marks on. Then you take the print job and feed it into the Silhouette and at reads the registration marks so that it cuts precisely around the photo. I SO want to try this, but don't have the Designer Edition yet.

      I didn't cut it with a Silhouette. I also haven't tried the print/cut feature. In this case I used a 1/2 circle layered template in Photoshop and printed it out that way and then hand-cut it. Worked for me!

    Love the idea of making a mini album within the album! I did a page about putting up the tree for day 11. http://rockermorsan.blogspot.se/2017/12/december-daily-days-9-14.html
