January Calendar....

2015 brings a new challenge over at the Craft Barn and it is to make a monthly calendar.

You may notice that we are making this for 2016 so be the end of the year it will be ready to put together.
The remit for January was to use the colour Aqua and snowflakes and this is what I came up with.......

The background is quite twinkly but I'm not sure the photograph shows this up very well.
I put a coat of gesso over the white card firstly and did it quite roughly to add a bit of texture.
Then I sprayed it with an aqua colour and while it was still wet I sprinkled on some ultra fine white glitter

               So come back next month for the February calendar and see what I come up with for that one

I had a fabulous day, yesterday,  at the Crafty Bunch demoing with Brushos and this is one of the cards I made. It was really liked by the ladies who came to watch.

This technique was done using gold texture paste and a stencil

Back soon xx
