~ 2008 Calendar

I liked doing the 2009 calendar so much that I made another one for the current year.  This one has a very different style than the last one–kind of Tim Holtz “light”.  Still very square but threw in some curves in the way of Grungeboard, flowers and subtle Fiskars embossing corner punches.  

This project, though it is hard to see it in the pictures, is very glimmery. The book board, first layer of paper (glimmer misted, inked, crumpled) and grungeboard have been altered with combinations of Perfect Pearls, alcohol ink and distressing ink.  Scale – the book boards are 6 x 6 inches, the calendar stickers are on a 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper, mounted on a 4 1/2 inch piece of cardstock.

Stuff – book board, patterned paper and rings – 7 Gypsies; cardstock and flowers – Bazzill; chipboard – Grafix; alcohol ink, distressing ink, Perfect Pearls, Grungeboard – Tim Holtz/Ranger; calendar stickers – EK Success; crystal brads – Stampin’ Up!
