"Documenting My December 2014" ~ Weeks #53/#1 & #2 Pocket Scrapbooking Layouts Using Spray Inks!

"Documenting My December 2014"


My '4-Part Approach" to documenting the Christmas season turned out even better than I expected. Whoo~hoo!!! I will be sharing my key "take-aways" from my December documenting journey in a subsequent post so stay tuned.

After last week's MONSTER Christmas layout, I thought I would take a more "minimalistic" approach with my journaling and embellishments this week. My super sweet friend, Maggie Castellanos, sent me a variety of (12x12) mixed media paper by scrapbooking manufacturer, Pink Paislee. The paper is designed to reveal a super cool pattern when misted with spray ink. The vintage print coupled with pops of VIBRANT color are the perfect backdrops for this week's layout!

The Project Life Design C Panoramic page protector with eight (4x6) pockets houses all of my New Year's Eve/Day memories beautifully.

I lightly misted each (4x6) journal card with Dylusions or Heidi Swapp Spray Inks then gently pressed the excess ink off the journal card onto a blank page in my mixed media journal. The excess ink stains in my journal now become my first layer in a future art journal layout. There is no need to waste all of that yummy color, right???  :D
