I have been following the very talented blog of Kate Crane for a while now and I love her style. If you don't know her yet, get yourself over to The Kathrine Wheel and see her fab "journaling" style.
Kate makes a journal/calender page each month, and since January this year I have been desperate to have a go. Unfortunately I have been busy making other craft items and not had chance to have to do it......So last night whilst watching American Idol (which is good by the way!) I had a go and I am really quite pleased with the way it has turned out.
I inked the plain pages with Tim Holtz inks (spiced marigold and barn door), and then I used some circle sequin leftovers to create a mask to ink through. I have used the lady image from the Stampotique range, stamped her and coloured her with pro-makers.
The little 1"x 1" date squares are all cut from a sheet of lined paper. I have handwritten "March's" date's on them.
All the other embellishments are stamped, and I have used some acrylic white paint. I have used a cork, pen top and splats for the circles. What great fun I have had doing it and cannot wait to have another go in April.
I am going to post it over at Kate's blog as she asks to see them.
