Hey guys! So, this is my third December Daily post this month! For my first post, I went over my supplies, organization, and album cover. For my second post, I went over my game plan and manifesto. And today, I want to share some of the foundation pages I've made so far.
In my last post, I talked about approaching this project with a formula. Part of my game plan is to include one 6"x8" sheet protector in every 2-page spread. I'd like to include as many full page photos as possible, but for those instances it's not, I started making some 6"x8" foundation pages.
You'll notice II left a lot of negative space on these two pages. I wanted some room to incorporate smaller photos into the composition.
This page is meant to be purely decorative and will add it to my album as is. To add some visual interest, I gold embossed the wood veneer "MERRY" sentiment. You're going to see a lot of embossing throughout my album. In my last post, I shared a gold embossed vellum page that I layered underneath my manifesto.
Here you can see another gold embossed piece of vellum peeking out from underneath the gold striped baggie.
On top of the baggie, I layered a decorative transparent page reading "MERRY EVERYTHING" in plaid puffy stickers. You could use a sheet of acrylic to achieve the same affect, but here, I simply cut down a plastic sheet protector.
To fasten the striped baggie, I stapled a couple strips of vellum to the sides and punched holes using a single hole punch. I would have punched holes directly into the baggie itself, but I wanted to center it directly underneath the "merry everything" sentiment.
And underneath the baggie, is the gold embossed vellum. I used the reindeer stamp from the Gossamer Blue "Be Happy" Collection by Allison Pennington to create a pattern. Then I accented it with some sequins that came in the Gossamer Blue December Memories kit.
And here is closeup of the backside of the vellum. I added corresponding sequin to create a more finished effect.
Thanks so much for stopping by--I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into my album! On Saturday I want to share more of foundations pages, this time featuring some fun die cutting techniques, so I hope you check back in :)
