December Daily & a Layout

I had fun this past weekend crafting away! I had 2 cans of Krylon crackle spray paint, the crackle and the base, that I had gotten at Michaels on clearance for 99¢ a can. While having a Harry Potter fest on Saturday, I’d run down to the basement and spray another coat on.

Sunday, I decorated up the cover, here’s how it turned out:

Couple of closeups:

The crackle:

I tried to get a medium crackle, but it sort of turned out smallish. It's still cool. And was a great surface to work on.

I think I need some baubles or something to hang from the bow. I can always add stuff.

I also did this layout real quick. I used the My Minds Eye Lost & Found papers:

That’s it for today. I’m going to go work on the inside pages for the December Daily.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Beautiful cover for you Dec. Daily. The crackle turned out perfectly. You had a Harry Potter fest we had a zombie fest while I created Christmas cards.
Maybe it will be Harry Potter for us next weekend ;)
Such a cute layout.

Love your album!

I was tidying up in the weekend - and I found my December Daily album from 2 years ago, which I finished and I took all the photos... however I did not get the photos into the album. I was thinking I really have to finish it over the break - as it is going to be so cute when it is done!
