I have managed to stay discaplined enough to complete the first month of my calendar challenge. Then it was out with the paints to get the pages made for February.
I stuck two pages together with PVA, to make them stronger, then covered them with gesso( I am using an A3 sketchbook) When dry, the pages were sprayed with Craftynotions Creative Colour spray-Olive.
I had a rummage in my cupboard and found some spare chipboard letters which I coloured with Brusho, red as it is Valentines Day this month. Also used red Brusho to colour some paper to make my little journal boxes. I don't normally use red, but luckily it has not come out to strong a colour for me to work with.
Stamped 'love' on a page from an unloved book and cut out. Ready now to start on this months journalling.
Thumb still throbbing but I hope to start stitching again tomorrow- it's so frustrating!!!
