2013 Calendar – Part 1

Hi Friends!

Last week the Fawnie girls had a little collaboration with SRM stickers.  Due to my annual cousins camping trip (this was our 20th year!) and a little spill I took while I was camping (don’t worry I’m alright, just a little skinned up thanks to a run in with some gravel) I didn’t quite get finished in time to share my project on Friday.  So I finished it up over the weekend and I’m here to share some of  it with you today (and the rest tomorrow). Each month started as a white piece of cardstock (cut to 4.25″ x 4.25″) so you can see I did a lot of distress ink blending on each of these. I discovered some great ink combinations along the way too. I also used a lot of different Lawn Fawn stamp sets so I will list them below each photo. So without further ado…on to the project!

The 2013 is stamped with Quinn’s 123s and the tabs on each month were created with Say Cheese Too (this was my first time inking those month words up!).  All of my images I colored with copic markers. I will be back to share the rest of the months tomorrow, I didn’t want to overwhelm you after all 🙂

  4. Oh my goodness, what a masterpiece! This is just brilliant. Seriously, swear-worthy, in the best way possible! ;o) If you'd be willing to do a tutorial on the base structure, I'd love to know how you did it!
