December Daily 2017: The Cover

I really like the 6×8 size for my December Daily album and have used it for the last few years. So I wanted to go with that again. I found an adorable Becky Higgins album and loved that it was turquoise. I also found a Christmas tree shaker kit that sounded like it would be a fun addition to my cover.

I pulled some sequins, buttons, glitter, and mini wood trees to use inside my shaker. I went with green, turquoise, gold, white, with a small pop of red. I love this color combo and hope to use it throughout the album.

Since my album is blue I decided to go with white trees. I love this paint because it has a pearl finish which will give a bit of shimmer to my tree.

I painted the backing white and the top tree white. I then painted the edges of the other layers because that is all you will see of those. It took about 3 coats of paint to get a solid white on the trees.

It was really fun to add all the fun shakey things into the tree. I love all things shiny and shimery.

LOOK HOW PRETTY! 🙂 I used Glossy Accents to adhere each of the layers to the shaker.

I got my laser square last Christmas and LOVE it. It was the perfect way to add my tree exactly where I wanted it.

Because I want the shaker to be strongly attached to my cover I used Glossy Accents once again to adhere it. I then set a box on top of the shaker so that the weight would help it stick really well. Some glittery white thickers finished off the cover with the year.

So there you have it! My album cover for 2017. I’ve said this before, but I really mean it this time…this is my favorite cover yet!
