Wow, the days are flying by! My Christmas shopping is almost done (thank God for Etsy!) but I still have lots of crafting to do. Flourishes has a new calendar for 2012 and it’s in a 4 x 6 format. It’s a nice size to frame. You can find it here for only $2!
I decided to use Christmas Candles for a December calendar page.
After printing the calendar I stamped the candle image and colored it with Copic markers. I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms. Then I glittered up those candles! I wanted them to look like frosted pillars so I covered them with Crystal Effects and poured on the glitter. It’s a clear chunky glitter with lots of texture. I freehanded some black lines to frame the page with a black Copic Multiliner. Just for a whimsical touch I colored a piece of vellum with a YG13 Copic marker then punch out a tiny Christmas tree and adhered it over the 25. It’s a very plain page, but I left it that way until I decide if it’s going to be a card or part of a full calendar. Then I can embellish appropriately. Less is more is me anyway ;)
The design team has wonderful ideas and samples of calendar pages too, so check them out!
And have a great weekend!
