December Daily 2015 Day 10 In Which I Decide to Change Up Day 9

Ok welcome back and I’m so happy you are following along this crazy month with me! I have Day 10 to share today, but before I share I want you to know that Day 10 does not end here. In fact, tomorrow I will share more of Day 10 with you. First take a look at the process video that shows where Day 10 is at right now!

Ok, so I went to bed last night pretty happy with Day 10 as it is right here:

December Daily 2015 Day 10

And I woke up this morning, with fresh eyes and a little bit of sleep, and realized how jumbled up that left hand side is.

Here is the layout with a white piece of paper added to help:

And here is what happened with Day 9 after adding all that for Day 10:

December Daily 2015 Day 10

Here’s the thing: this would be ok if I left it just like this. It would be one of those things I might tell myself to never do again. Ha. It might be one of those things where I said, ok, not my best but I gotta keep on keeping on. And that would be totally ok!!!! But I knew when I woke up feeling worse about it, that perhaps I should do something about it.

So I’m going to leave you with a little cliff-hanger today. I thought about what my options were – one option would be to completely remove that transparency and start all over again. That option didn’t make me happy, because I love that transparency and I love the Be Awesome words and I love the photo frame on Day 10 and there were just too many things I really liked about it!

So option two might be to lift up the Be Awesome words and add a piece of white paper, or a piece of subtle white patterned paper to create some separation between the two days.

Or, option 3, perhaps to pull out the magic gesso.

Which one will I decide on? Check back tomorrow and I’ll share! Now go, do, and create!

See you soon,

Within each post I try my best to post links and attribute the products I have used in today’s layout. Sometimes, sadly, those products are no longer available but still deserve attribution. Both chipboard frames are previous Crate Paper products. The gold one is from Maggie Holmes’ Open Book collection, and the black one is from Crate Paper Notes & Things.

The number 10 on this layout is part of a vintage set of numbers I purchased from a local shop in Kernersville, NC, called Vintage Jane. Here is a link to their blog, and if you are local please go visit them!
