December Daily: cover & first page
This is the book I'm using for this year's December Daily. It's one I made; it measures about 5 in. wide and 6 in. long. This is the first time using a spiral book; last year I didn't bind the book until I had all the pages mostly finished, so this will be a little different. And yes, it's red and pink, not red and green. Because I like to be a little different. I'm not sure yet what I will do to embellish the cover, maybe some bling, or maybe nothing at all...haven't decided yet. Plenty of time for that.
This is what the inside cover and title page looks like. The inside covers of this book are done in this awesome faux crocodile paper that doesn't even feel like paper. I like incorporating different textures into my books.
Today's goal is to upload and print photos from yesterday and get them in the book. I always start new projects like this one with lots of enthusiasm which eventually wanes over the course of the month, and there are always days where I scramble to put something in because I forgot to take photos. But right now I'm filled with that new-project enthusiasm so I'll get a good start on this book.
