Hello everyone. Are we well?
So it's time for another month on the calender. This month is March, the start of Spring so naturally I opted for Daffodils. Here's what I did...
The first step was to create a background to offset my foreground. I used Scattered Straw Distress Oxide to create a background. I go very gently, layering up slowly to achieve the desired depth of colour.
Next, I cut the Daffodil components. I used 'Daffodil Yellow Plain 290gsm' for the outside of the Daffodils, 'Intensive Yellow 210gsm' for the inners and 'Apple Green 240gsm' for the flower shoots.
Then, I layered all the pieces together using wet adhesive.
I spent some time on a scrap of paper laying all the components out to a composition I was happy with BEFORE I finally adhered them to the calender page.
I stuck the whole of the Daffodils down, stem and flower. With the shoots, I ONLY adhered the base so that the tops sat loosely.
That is it. It was so simple. The most time consuming part was die cutting all the elements.
I hope you like this calender page!
Until next time, take care.
Love Dani xx
