I had a bit of time off over Christmas and decided that I had to make time to do what I love most and that is crafting.
I love to blog and love reading blogs and both had been seriously neglected so part of my new regime for 2010 is to, at least, do a little bit more of both of those. I doubt I will ever be an avid blogger, time constraints are always going to get in the way but I will try to when I can.
Anyhoo, Sharon on Bubbly Funk (and super duper DT member for Tando) told us about a fab challenge on the Kathryn Wheel blog....a Calendar Challenge HERE. I decided, possibly unwisely knowing how I stick to these things, to have a go as I found the whole thing very inspiring.
I am actually keeping up to date with the daily entries at the moment which is a shock in itself but it is only the 6th January.
My January pages are quite simples really. I used watercolour paper and applied a blue wash, I then stamped with a swirly stamp over the top in white. My next job was to use 3D paste, that I'd bought for an online class that I never did *roll eyes*, and after dabbing it on with my finger I stamped the word January into it. Given our current covering of snow and ice I wanted to give it a imprinted look in snow, like a footprint :)
I cut random sized squares from more watercoloured paper, inked the edges and stamped the numbers of the days on in white. My intention is to doodle over some of the numbers but not all so I can still follow the days.
Anyway, pictures are normally much more interesting so here they are:
Well hopefully it won't be another 6 months before I blog again..........but you never know!!
