Birthday calendar month Augustus


I didn't want a store bought birthday calendar, instead I started making my own original "artsy" calendar.
For the mont of august I was inspired by summer, so I used vibrant colors and flowers.


I started by spraying a 12x12 piece of white paper with water and Dylusions sprayink and dabbed it dry with kitchen towel. I then used a stencil and sprayed some more water; let it sit for a moment and dabbed it dry, this created a bleach effect.(technique by Dyan Reaveley)



The flowers were made using gelli prints. If you own a gelli plate you will already know that the stack of prints pile up quite rapidly. It is so addictive! This definitely was a good investment.
I just cut out the petals and glued them on the background and used a button for the centre.

Now I just have to punch a hole in the left top corner and hang it on the wall using a metal ring.
Next month I will reveil Septembers design.

Hope you enjoyed my first 'real' post and wish to see you back soon.
Bye for now.

I will be linking this post to August's colorful gelli print party from the very talented Carolyn Dube.
