Tamara here with you today. Fist let me wish you all a Happy, healthy and creative New Year 2023! I’m kicking it off with a new year’s calendar. I haven’t made any in the last few years but I really like how this one turned out. For the base I used a few layers of heavy cardstock and just glued them together. On the top I used my disc punch and added clear disc with glitter (of course). I made a few dividers out of design paper and added some extra sheets of striped paper inside. I can always add more pages/dividers in case I need them, also photo sleeves, envelopes … I decorated the front with Oddball Rosie and her powerful sentiment “You can do it!”. I think it’s perfect for the calendar, LOL. I also added a small calendar.
Image was stamped with Archival ink – Jet black on 300 g HP watercolour paper (Langton) and then coloured up using Distress ink pads. Before adding it to the calendar I fussy cut it.
Distress inks used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair, shoes: antique linen, walnut stain
outfit: pumice stone, black soot
hair bow: victorian velvet
