Hello everyone and a Happy New Year to you all! I hope this will be your most creative year yet and that you are well on track to realize your dreams!
There are some changes a foot over at Our Creative Corner and one of them is that from now on there will be no longer a team A and B but we are all showing our projects at the same time, so here is mine for this month.
I used not one, but three hoarded items from my stash and combined them into a little wall calendar.
The first was the little shaped board I used for the background, the next was the Weathered Clock die by Tim Holtz, purchased last year on a whim, and never yet used, and the last one was the beautiful rose stamp (from Stampin back in the Netherlands), which has sat around un-inked for months and months.
So this is how I went about creating my piece:
I started by adding some texture through a couple of Crafters Workshop stencils and also added some bits of book paper. When dry I then covered it all with Gesso.
Next I painted the background with a mix of Nougat, Stone and Taupe Fresco paints and added some colour to the raised bits with Gelatos and also some Treasure Gold in Pewter. I forgot to take a picture before I adhered the clock, but here you can see a few close up pictures of what it looks like.
The little calender came with the back panel which I got at a craft show for the grand amount of £1:00
I had a terrible job trying to photograph this as we have had so many really dark days, but I hope you at least got a bit of an idea.
Our Creative Corner blog, to see what my talented teamies have created and I very much hope you will play along with our challenge by going through your own stash to find some long forgotten items and give them a new leash of life.
Happy New Year everyone and thank you for visiting!!
