Thought it about time to get my MAY calendar pages ready especially as I needed somewhere to try out the latest challenge on 12months, fitting text into a shape and was all full up in April!
I made a flower stamp for the days, you can make one just the right size this way, although I didn't stamp them close enough the first time so had to quickly rub off as much as I could and re-do them! The middle of the rubber on the stamp kept picking up ink so I perfected it as I went along, all adds to the texture anyways.
I used stains, inks, paints and star sequin waste for the background. I used up already cut letters and coloured them with distress inks for the month title. I used one of the May quotes for the fitting text into a shape technique.
I started an ATC whilst I was at it as a place to try out the colours and stuff. I used up my favourite piece of pink ribbon on there and on the edge of my May page too. Page all ready for filling in and the May flower, I wonder what that will be - probably Blue bells now I have gone all pink!
