Oh my goodness the last month in the 12 months challenge has finally come around. I like that it finishes in February as it is not only Valentines, but my Birthday (50) and Anniversary (16) this month.
Here's my February calendar, I used a heart for the days as I even had a stamp which was suitable this time. I have gone with purple for my colour scheme, using distress inks and stencils. I used one of my new Glitter Paste colours for the first time and OH what a mess I made.
First it was the removal of the aluminium seal from the tub.
I hadn't had that much trouble with the Bronze previously but the Lilac this time! The aluminium was not only caked in thick paste but it kept breaking off in pieces. The paste had separated so it then needed a good stir. I have the Sage Green seal yet to do!
It also took me a few attempts to get the paste to work well through the stencils which were hard to lay flat. I made a mess of 2 of the 3 birds on my calendar page and thankfully the one bird I did on the round robin journal I was doing in the same vein worked quite well.
Yes I have loved the calendar aspect of this 12 months project and soon will have a year's worth of daily entries to look back on.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
