May Calendar Page

May 7, 2012

This is my May 2012 calendar challenge page done, I only did it this weekend so it’s definitely late. I’m not having a good time at the moment so I wasn’t feeling much like being creative.  It’s Dylusions mustard paint (which isn’t available anymore) applied with a baby wipe, stamped with the Tim Holtz Papillon words and butterflies.  I made the days out of a papermania ticket stamp and coloured them with Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Tea Stain and Shabby Shutters.  The butterflies were stamped on a tissue and adhered with matt medium and then coloured with Inktense pencils.  I also added a tissue tape/button flower.  It’s turned out OK considering it was a bit of a rush job without creative mojo.

Close up of butterfly made 3D with glossy accents.  I love the Papillon stamps I’ve already used them to decorate a blank MDF pen pot for my desk.

This is April finished and as you can see last week started with a “really c**p day!”

I just hope that it improves during May but we’ll see.
