Week 2 - Bright Colours





Here is my February Calendar page for Week 2 at The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge.  Last week The Craft Barn DT shared with us some amazing projects with Dylusions sprays and as I have not got any Dylusions Sprays  I decided to  use Luminarte Shimmer spray which instead of spraying on I have painted onto watercolour paper as I wanted a wash effect, colours used were persimmon and passion fruit this done I left my page to dry..........when I came back to it my mojo had left the room of craftyness.........


..........now I had a nice bright background but nothing to add to it then I had a light bulb moment......February.....Valentines Day........Chocolate...........

Heart is a Tim Holtz stamp stamped with Barn Door DI and over stamped with Black Soot on three onto a piece of the background which I then distressed the edges of the paper with my distressing tool and left them white and attached to the page. Keep Calm etc., was stamped onto white card  in Black Soot DI and edges distressed as before and inked .....stamp is a Stamposarus set. my Calendar is one I made and inked the edges with black soot.  The finished page was then mounted onto a piece of chipboard and holes punched.

I might need sun glasses on when I get to this page next year but I'm sure it will "brighten" a dull February Day......thanks to all the DT for your inspiration.

'till next time
