Well, as I said, yesterday was Crop Day for our little crafty gang and we’d set a challenge to ourselves to make something that was 3d, as a change from doing a card.
So, here is my contribution 🙂
It’s a Perpetual Calendar made from MDF by Stamps Away, which I bought via Create and Craft. I’ve decorated it with design papers from the Beach Bliss paper pad by Lily of the Valley. I sanded round the edges and then coloured them with a brown alcohol marker. The letter and numbers were inked on using Vintage Photo distress ink through a stencil, which I bought at the same time.
I’ve added some die cut leaves up each side and the dogwood flowers at the front are also die cut. The sentiment is one from IndigoBlu, which I felt was quite appropriate for a calendar.
I only did the decoration yesterday, the calendar itself took a wee while to decorate and put together, but it’s very sturdy once constructed, and quite a substantial piece.
Have thoroughly enjoyed making this, and it’s been good fun trying something different 🙂
Next month, we’ll be tackling cards again, and the theme of “travel” has been set – so watch this space!
Right must go, gotta look for a new job 😦
Back again soon
