Yep, I'm behind in posting my pages from December Daily but that's okay because better late than never, right? Plus I've seen plenty of other people posting late so I'm betting there are other people like me that are still working on it. Hopefully these pages will give those of you, like me, who are behind, some motivation or ideas or just some inspiration to do a page or finish one you are working on.
Day 10 was all about documenting my Christmas playlist. I start listening to Christmas music waaaaay before Christmas...before Thanksgiving even because I love it so much. So I knew I had to dedicate one day to my fav tunes at Christmas.
Doing a layout with no actual pictures is always difficult because there generally tends to be a lot more writing which can make for less visual content.
Personally, I've noticed people gloss over word-heavy pages because there isn't as much visual interest but I tried to counter that by using big words, glitter, bright color and loud and crazy patterns.
My playlist is made up of the songs I listen to most. I just pulled up my ipod's Christmas playlist and sorted by the most plays.
As I was doing this I wondered what other people's lists would look like? Would they be all new-age pop Christmas, old-school Bing Crosby or a combination like mine? If you would like to post some of your playlist or post a link to your blog I would LOVE to read everyone's fav songs.
This is the other side of my music playlist layout. I used Ali Edward's kit for the #10 and painted it red with Martha Stewart paint.
I used some old Authentique paper for the title 3x4 card on the top left. (love the Cardinal, makes me always think of my Grandma)
I absolutely love the glittered music foam stickers from American Crafts. They are so much fun and shiny and bright and RED and just plain cool. Can you tell...those foam stickers are my new thing that I go to often.
The bottom two 3x4 cards I used the backside of some Authentique paper and just printed specific music categories that I thought of on them using Remington Noiseless font (I usually get my free fonts from dafont.com.
Then I wrote in my "answers" to those categories.
I picked those categories based on ideas I had when going through all of my songs and thinking about the reasons why they are my favorite. I noticed all of the different types of songs I do have; for instance, songs sung in foreign languages, old-school songs, versions by newer artists, albums I listen to more than others or even the fact that I like certain songs. O Holy Night for instance. I have 10 different artist versions of that song. I LOVE that song. It's beautiful especially sung in acapella.
Thanks for reading my post. I hope to see some comments on what your favorite Christmas songs are.
