Here it is the completed December Daily
It will be treasured amongst my Christmas decorations and is about to be put away until next year!
The cover is misted (looks a bit pink here but it is more red in real life)
Used some alphas as a mask for the 'christmas' word - gathered some vintage sparkly fabric and gathered it and added the leaf ribbon, deers, used some beading and added some prima vines.
I'm really thrilled how it turned out especially in the Prima Canvas Album.
Its probably a little bit too big in comparison to my smaller cardboard and paper one last year which was quicker to get each page done... but.... on the otherhand - working with the canvas pages and plastic sleeve pages has given opportunity for much scope and varied fun creative-wise!!
Having said that - next years will be smaller!! LOL!
And the Dec 1st - was my Art Class - where I've been doing lino cut and prints, and this one has been used for my Christmas cards this year. I'm not sure yet how I'll do the inside cover of my DD, I'll look at that when all the pages are completed. Ugh the colour is off for some reason... probably the crappy stormy weather we are having - hopeless for photographing in! The bird print is maroon - not purple and the '1st is supposed to be dark gray!
Getting the make-up and costumes ready

I added in more pages by gluing extra pages onto the canvas to flap open.
The day I made up a heap of more cards and this is a flapped open page!
Thought my kitchen looked rather festive so took a pic!
this is the top of the extra glued in page.
Couldnt go without adding in a page of my finches

Not forgetting our sweet Blackie - who is a big scaredy-cat!
And our very ancient Cosmo who is feeling very much his age at the moment
It was to be his last (his 18th) with us, heartbreakingly passing away two weeks later.
Done and completed!
