Punches and Dies and Glitter Oh My!
I have a theme for this year, and if you recall I shared a link from My Owl Barn last year.... you remember, she lets you design your own 2012 calendar using owl art from various artists... So, I started with one of the owl images (this is the hardest part because they are all so great), added my own January calendar page (not because I am a glutton for punishment, well maybe I am, but because hers didn't quite fit... and January was started.
If you are wondering how I got the texture on the owl image, I printed it out on art paper - acrylic painters paper... I prefer it over watercolor paper because I like that it makes my printed image look like the artist painted it just for me :-) Oh, speaking of which, the artist who created this beauty is Kelly Ann, you can see some of her other paintings by clicking here.
On the inside, I used the quote from one of the printables I've created (click here to get the quote) and added my Memory Box Frosty Border die (yeah, this is a fun one!)... I cut the die apart and framed the quote... and glitter here too!
Have a happy day! It is a cold one here, guess I shouldn't complain, it is winter :-)
