Day to Remember

Just wanted to share this calendar/wall hanging that I made.  I painted the board with antique white and then sanded it and used a stain to distress it.  I printed the calendar off the computer and distress the edges with my Distrezz It All and inked it with Tim Holtz ink and use Twinery twine to attach it to the peg on the board.  The paper used was Prima.  Flower branches and butterflies are Recollections.  The nest/branch came from Joann's.  Bird and eggs came from Michael's.  Clock is a Tim Holtz piece.  Flower pot is one from Michael's and broken in half.  The labels are an Accucut die Convertibles Nameplate 5 1/2" and also the 101/2", Convertibles Alphabet Lynn's House (words--day & to) Curlz Upper Case Die set 1 1/4" (word--remember)  Curlz Numbers 1 1/4"  (2011) and the Book Heart 2die as an envelope to hold all the other months and attached it to the back of the board, I also punched holes partially around the heart and ran Twinery twine through it.

Peachy Keen Stamps

Items used to make this....
Peachy Keen Stamps PK-274  Faceless Flowers 12 Petal Groovy
Sizzix Bigz Die 3D Vase
Floral Tape
ColorBox Chalk in Chestnut Roan
Memento Black Ink Pad
Bazzill Swiss Dot paper

The flowers were stamped with Memento Black Ink Pad and then colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  Then I cut out the flowers.  The hot pink, light pink and orange flower were cut between each petal and then I curled each petal with a toothpick and then layered them.  The purple flower was cut between each petal and the I pinched the petals in half and then layered them.  The two that are layered with pink and purple were done like the ones Kathy Orta did in her video.  After all of the flowers were glued I took ColorBox in Chestnut Roan and randomly touched the flowers.
