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
