A June Calendar page

Hi bloggers, Barbara back today with a calendar page from the 2018 Papermilldirect calendar.

These are perfect for personalising with photos, stamping, & stencilling etc, to correspond with the month of the year.

I used a piece of white 'hopsack' 5" deep, by the complete width of the calendar.

This was inked with Distress Oxides, in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers & Lucky clover......then splashed with water to give a 'sea' effect.

I stamped some foliage, to represent seaweed, then stencilled the larger leaves & seahorse using Polyfilla. (if you use texture paste often, it becomes quite expensive....I always have a tub of ready-mixed Polyfilla to hand, it's just as good, but maybe not as smooth....it was perfect for what I needed it for though.)

I stencilled some bubbles using a stencil from Inkylicious, and filled them with Ranger, Glossy Accents.

I lightly brushed over the stencilling with an ink pad.

Because I knew the stencilling would add extra weight to the piece of hopsack, I mounted the whole piece onto black smooth card, then adhered to the calendar.

The 2019 Calendars will be available soon......I'm going to buy a few to personalise for my family, as gifts.

Don't miss them .......

Back soon with the July page,
