Carrying on with the super challenge set by
these are my February calendar pages.
The background is smeared acrylic paint,
first red and then duck egg blue.
I liked the overall dark purple colour
and so cut out squares of dark purple cardstock
for all the days of the month etc.
I heat embossed the pattern round the edge
with Heat It Up (Cranberry).
Finally, to show how jolly chilly it is,
I spritzed the pages with
Ranger's Perfect Pearls Mist.
The quote for February is,
"If Candlemas is fair and clear
There'll be two winters in one year."
Candlemas Day is on February 2nd (today)
and guess what?
It was fair and clear!
The pages in the book are old and brittle
so they're held together with black duct tape.
Not very attractive but it does the job.
Also, unfortunately some red paint from
my February pages managed to get on
my January pages (it looked like there'd
been a massacre!), so I'll have to have a
bit of a clean up there :o(
