AED Day29

Made a day book today. I'm so ready for December and this book
is going to be my December Daily journal. I've been thinking to use
Project Life, Smash Book or Ali Edwards December Daily album
to make my DD this year. And finally, I decide to use my favorite journal
- a day book, that I've been using for more than a year to record my life/ event
in one book every month. Here is how I sew a day book and the size of
my book here is 5.5" X 8.5".
Plan to take one photo and do journaling one page each day
so I mark the number on the corner of the page.
 
Not going to make it fancy or many details, just record some real and
normal life each day in December.
 
Thank you so much for dropping by today.
Hope you are ready for the happy December, too.... ^_^

WOYWW AED 28

Oh....it's my Art Every Day day 28. So glad I am going to make it for the whole
month of November! Actually, I skipped the Thanksgiving day post,
 but I did make something on that day just didn't get any chance to post it here.
These are currently on my desk - WOYWW.
I made two layouts yesterday and today.

Here is the first layout.
These photos were taken at Christopher's school winter party last year.
Their project was making a snowman using marshmallow, pretzel, cookies
and candy. I sew 3 layers of background and 25 squares to make this 
page like a quilt and an advent calendar.

 
 
 


 This is my secone layout.
I use many layers in this layout. The photo was taken in
this summer at Santa Barbara during our family trip.

Hope you all have a wonderful day... ^_^

cards and bound with book ring. On each card,
there's a number and a sentiment matches the letter in alphabetical
order from the first card to 24th card. It also includes one sentence
from a short poem on each card.

Hi, girlfriends! AED 25

Hi! My blog friends, it's time for party at Make It Monday.
This week I used Coffee Table stamp from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps 
to make this mixed media painting on canvas. Here are some steps.
  
Use Gelatos to make the background ,and print out the digi stamp and color it
with water color pencils.
  
After coloring the image, tear it out and paste it on the canvas.

Color the edge of the canvas.
  
Mix the modeling paste and Gelatos and spread randomly on the background to
make the texture.
  
Keep adding colors using Faber Castell markers and crsyons.
Use stencil and stamp to make some flower and news print patterns.
Add glitter on the flowers and pearls on the vase.

Here is the final look... ^_^

Advent Calendar 2012

Have you ever made your own advent calendar? I had so much fun making
my ATC advent calendar last year and thought I should make it
earlier this year, so here it is. (click the photo to enlarge it)


                                 This advent calendar is simple to make in 5 steps.
                                 1. Punch 24 tags. (I use Uchida shipping tag punch)
                                 2. Punch 24 circles. (I use the Paper Studio 1.5" scallop circle punch)
                                 3. Print and cut the numbers. (I use Brother PT-1880)
                                 4. Attach the circle punch, embellishment and number on the tag.
                                 5. Tie all the tags using bakers twine and hang the calendar on the wall.
                                     (I use Hemptique Bakers Twine)
  
Is it easy and fun? This advent calendar currently is on the wall of
Natalie's room. Later on, it will be on my December Daily album.
Of course I'll alter the dimensional tag to fit in the album.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you all have a great day! ^_^
