I finished my album off with a few religious images.  I painted a touch of gesso on the paper and stamped the image using a black archival ink.

I had some beautiful paper that looked like a stained glass window and what better way to frame it than to take the Acetate Scalloped tag and lay it over the top. I applied a touch of alcohol inks and blending solution to the acetate tag to create a warm aged feel.  I edged the tag with gold krylon pen to gild it.  I then attached the paper to the back side of the tag. I added a gold star to the top to cover the hole of the tag.

With the acetate it is tricky to place things in a way it looks visually pleasing on both sides of the calendar. I covered the word Joy with the snowflake. The buck actually was stamped on the reverse side and becomes  a reverse image on the back.

Day 11 is another Mixed Media Card with a fun retro image skating along.  I will be back to share the remainder of the album soon!

The easy easel  album came with a certain number of pages.  I had to add extra pages to have enough for the 25 days of Christmas.  I used the mixed media card set and  scalloped tag set to add additional pages.  All the items area available to purchase on-line at the Basically Bare retail shop.
