Man I love this time of year. I’m doing very little on the work front, ergo, the lack of blog posts this week. Everything slows down a little. We make cookies. We play games. We drink wine (not all of us in the Zielske family, mind you.) Despite the lack of sun—and I’m not kidding, we haven’t seen the sun for oh, about 10 days—it’s all good. I wanted to compile a bunch of images from my December Daily album as well as wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Sound good?
First off, I did decide to ditch the gold spray painted chipboard page from Installment No. 04. It just bugged me. So instead, I did this:
For Day 15, I snagged a few of the phrases from this blog post to make a list of things I was excited about. To create that journal block, I made a white rectangle using the Rectangle Tool, then screened back the Opacity to about 75%. Love that see-through effect. Of course, it works best with an image that has a bit of space that won’t compete, visually.
Day 18 was Go Get Aidan Day. We tooled around Madison, staying one more night in her now former college town before heading home. I love how Ali’s template worked on the right-facing page. And the Elf shot? Well, what’s not to love, really? (Except the typo on Japanses. Might have to fix that one.).
Aidan made manigot (manicotti) from scratch on the 20th. Here’s the story (and here’s a link to the recipe!)
And that is where I’m at with this so far. I really have loved adapted this project to fit my style and taste.
So with that, have a very merry Christmas! Check back Friday for a cool giveaway from Katrina Kennedy for those of you who want to embark on a Photo 365 project!
