Last year I couldn't find a calendar that I liked that was the right size to fit in the space I have in the hall. So I decided to make one.
I didn't make an actual calendar, just a page a month. That way it didn't take up all my time and it meant that I could get a feel for the seasons as I went along. I enjoyed doing it so much that I'm carrying on.
Here's January! And only a tiny bit late...
...and here's a close-up.
The backing paper is by Basic Grey - I adore their papers. I layered on some torn grey-blue vellum to give an icy look and stamped seed heads and grasses by SU in black. Then I punched snowflakes in thin paper so they'd curl a little and drew detail on them with a silver gel pen. I glued the small ones on and attached the larger ones with a silver brad. Once I'd added a little silver detail on the grass heads and matted the whole thing onto some Real Red cardstock I was finished. (You can click on the image to see the detail if you like.)
Now my calendar is up to date - ha! A pun!
See you soon.
