December Daily 2014: Day 14

Gingerbread Houses

Since the spreads from the 13th were very busy, I intentionally went minimalist with this spread and returned to my favorite design technique: Photos + words. and not much else.

I did, however, add two embellishments...in the form of words: The Saturday word art and a text overlay that runs along the side of the 6x8 photo. 

The overlay is inspired by this collection from Ali Edwards. To make it, I wrote a series of words related to our gingerbread house decorating (sugar, icing, cinnamon, sprinkles, candy, etc.), copied them multiple times, and set them at different opacities. It just adds a subtle texture that I liked.

Also, really liking my choice to take primarily black and white photos for this album. I took some color photos of our gingerbread house decorating and I strongly preferred the black and whites.
