Calendar page for a friends swap....
Okay, I am on a roll tonight! Should be doing my list for supplies for my class, but had to post this one. This is my submission for a friends calendar page. I did it for August. Wanted that very hot feeling for all of us in Texas! So, I started with several shades of red and yellow, then a touch of gold alcohol inks, to give it that summer shimmer look. Now if you have worked with alcohol inks on glossy paper, you know that no two projects look alike. Everyone you do will be unique, I did 14 for this swap. That being said, it was hard to choose one to keep for myself. The next step is using black Stazon ink to stamp all the flowers and butterflies, using only The Angel Company Stamps. Again, now two will look alike, so don't try to make it look symetrical, it only messes your project up. Now, the border is done with black cardstock and the punch is by Martha Stewart. I hope you enjoy this calendar page, I know I had fun doing it! Thank you for looking,
