Another Hotel Room

I’ve been hoarding this background patterned paper (Venice) from October Afternoon for a few years.  I love the block stripes of colour on the paper and didn’t know what photographs to use for this paper.  I did add two strips of washi tape onto the backing paper.   

I started by cutting the hexagon (Hong Kong) paper as a block of paper as the main spot where everything else would come out from.  I used two Instax photographs layered on the reverse of some October Afternoon paper, and used some old stickers.  

 Used two manila tags, some enamel dots and stickers from Simple Stories.   

I love that I’ve been able to use this sheet of patterned paper and I love the end result too!

December Daily Prompt Ideas 2014

I suddenly thought that I hadn’t created a prompt list for mine or my Mom’s December Daily album... so I thought back to the photographs I’ve taken in previous years and what I want to capture and came up with this list. You can download it BY CLICKING HERE

My Mom has ‘problems’ with journaling so I thought I would create some journal prompts too.  I find my journaling gets stuck in a rut – so I’m hoping these will help me too.  These are simple prompts that are all mixed with the photography prompts since they can be mixed and used for both journaling and photographs.

We both ordered a Studio Calico kit, and will be mixing that kit with stash we already have and bits cut from the silhouette.

Currently I am working on some of my day cards.  I am waiting for some new Christmassy washi tape so I can’t do too many.

Are you looking forward to December Daily?

days out layout

 (And why can't the photos rotate automatically...)

I decided to use a compass mask that I just re-found so create some layers and depth, and used some mist droplets too for this layout.
 Scrunched some washi tape and Tim Holtz ruler ribbon.  And added simple journalling - where we were, with who, and why....
The photographs are from our day out in Manchester after our trip to the Lake District

I love using my Instax camera.
