Christmas card

I made this calendar with the leftover pieces from the paper piecing on my July calendar page

More Calendar pages

For the June Page I used a stencil and Tim Holtz Distress inks.
For the July page I used the Sunburst paper piecing technique.
for the August page I used another version of the Bokeh technique , after watching a You tube tutorial. I the tutorial the background was painted with watercolour paint, then a white ink was used for the circles. I don't have watercolour paints so I used twinkling H2O's and I didn't like the look with white ink so I used Dylusions white paint.

2016 Techniques calendar

Here are 3 more pages for my calendar.. I am having a lot of fun playing with different techniques for this calendar..

Yesterday I went to a Meeting at ACTSA (ACT stamp artists) we meet the last Sat of the Month, and Mary (one of the members) demonstrated a technique called Bokeh, so I made my own template using some acetate and some Spellbinder circle dies to cut out some different size circles, I used this technique on 2 of the pages.
On the March Page I used 3 of the new Tim Holtz distress ink pads on white card, On the April page I used Dylusions white paint on black card, On the May page I used some Dylusions sprays and a stencil.

Magenta Nuance

I was playing with My Magenta Nuance today and I did the background on this calendar, I white embossed a snowflake stamp, then used 2 blues from the Nuance range to make this background. It was my first attempt to use this new product and I am very happy with the results. I coloured the stamped image with twinkling H2O's.
