As many of you know, Kate Crane hosts a monthly calendar challenge. I have been doing this for over a year now and it is great fun. You can find out more on Kate's blog here
Here is my July page all filled in:
And here is my August page ready to go
For this page I started to put Gesso all over, then used many layers of Golden fluid acrylics, blended with a baby wipe.The paper out of which I punched the circles was created in a similar way but then I stamped all over them. As they were quite dark I added more gesso and paints (Titan Buff). The imagery was created with the help of a paper napkin. August 2011 was stamped as were some of the other details on the page. I set myself the challenge not to use any digital images this time.
