2014 Post-It Note Calender Gifts

Still playing catch-up.  These are calendars that I made for friends as Christmas Gifts.  I can't remember all the exact supplies I used, but they all used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint as a base, then were stencilled using both Fresco paint and Archival ink before stamping, and embellishing.  I found the idea on YT, (I'll try to find the original and credit the idea if I can). I changed it somewhat and made my own papers rather than use Scrapbook paper as shown on the original video.

Playing catch up (again) and blogging projects from 2013, starting with the Christmas cards I made for my online friends.  I think I made around 5-6 of each design.  Here is the first, which unfortunately did not photograph that well, and I didn't check the files until after I'd sent it, so it looks kind of warped from the angle the picture was taken, but oh well!

Patterned Paper - Bazzill Basics Antique Aged Papers
Dies - Tim Holtz On The Edge (Scallop); Tim Holtz (Letters)
