February Calendar Page

Kate Crane is hosting her 365 Calendar Journal page thing again this year, check out her blog The Kathryn Wheel.

So I have done January and gawd what a struggle it is to think of something interesting to write about my life each day in a one inch square, think my writing may get progresively larger as the year goes on, LOL.

Anyway here is February, due to a big date on the 25th, I have made it a homage to our Lord and saviour, Monsieur Holtz.  So I set myself a challenge to only use Tim's products, it was tough, so couldnt use sequin waste or paint to add depth, made myself some mica spray using reinker and perfect pearls and sprayed through some chipboard Id cut using his Tattered leaves die, for the background I tried to make a wash out of Wild Honey DI, it was quite hard and went patchy, but defn added to it.  Didnt intend to go quite so orange, but hey ho.


Oops forgot to post January's page, not quite completed as I tend to fill it in at the end of the day.
