Bind-it-all Calendar - December

Phew! And now it's done! :o)

This is a fat page sized version of a tag I'd made a while back. Background is scattered straw distress ink applied with a baby wipe and edged with faded burlap. The holly was stamped in pine needles then painted with a water brush. The berries were painted with fired brick ink, which was also used to stamp the "noel" text. Finally a little glossy accents was applied to give the berries a bit of shine.

The quote reads "I heard a bird singing in the dark of December - Oliver Herford "I Heard a Bird Sing".

Thanks to everyone that's stuck with me and looked at each month as I've gone along. I hope you liked it. It was fun to make, though a lot of work!

Nothing (yet) to follow tomorrow :o)

Hi there,
I just found your blog, I SO love your calendar!!!! So lucky the recipient :)
Did you make your own calendar pages for the separate months or did you print them from some software? I mean, the day to day part. What did you use for a "base" for your artwork? all chipboard or just card stock?
I've been using a 100 proof press calendar for mine but was a bit put off that the pages are so thin and I can really only use colored pencil for color medium. So the next one I'm making will be a bind it all!

Merry Christmas!
