December Daily - Day 15
A one-pager today. I had one picture that I wanted to showcase so I added a white border to it and put the journalling on the top and bottom of the picture using a white Remington Noiseless font.
I picked this picture because it showcases my favorite Christmas ornament from 2014. Every year I buy a new ornament for my tree. It's became a tradition ever since I moved away from home and had my own Christmas tree and this was the one I bought this year.
This year's ornament was absolutely perfect. I found it while shopping at the Mall of America in a seasonal ornament shop so I knew I had to buy it, put it on my tree and include it in my December Daily Album.
It was perfect. Hearts for me, deer for Bruce, the doe-eyed deer gazing adoringly at her man. Fits us to a tee.
For this layout I used the wood-like background because it worked the best with the pine needle background of the picture. Plus I wanted the homey warm feeling it brought. Which is why I added the white doilies as well.
I needed more visual interest so I cut up the doily and made a visual triangle. Corner to middle to corner. Then added the gold-edged circle with wooden #15 as a focal point.
I also decided to add the red puffy hearts because, well...it's a lovey dovey page...it needs more hearts. Not to mention it added more repetition (heart in the picture and more red).
