So the rules for February were..
1.. Keep a part of the original picture and incorporate that into your design
2, Technique - Paint effect caused by using clingfilm or bubble wrap
3. Add some corrugated card
4. Blog your calendar page and link up from Feb 1st 2015
I am finding it quite difficult to make choices about which parts to keep and this time I am not particularly happy with what I've done...
….but at least I got rid of the red flowers!
I covered the butterfly with glossy accents before painting over the page with a mixture of Little Black Dress and Snowflake Fresco paints(Paper Artsy) so that I could rub off any overlapping paint.
Bubble wrap printed using Concrete and LBD Frescos and used butterfly stamps straight onto corrugated card for the small butterfly and onto tissue and stuck it onto another piece of CC. I covered the bottom of the calendar with black card and used a page from a leftover calendar from some Christmas gifts! When hubby saw it it he pulled a face and said it looked a bit funerial so I added some pink on a bubble stamp!
Although I am way out my comfort zone with this so far I must say I am really enjoying this challenge!!!
