November calendar pages with Andy Skinner!! Brrrrilliant!

Hi how are you? I'm happy to see you here:0) It's November at the Craft Barn Calendar challenge and here are my pages.

We have been using Andy Skinner's Stamps , there has been, throughout the week, great inspiration from my team mates at the Craft Barn Blog, check it out if you have time.
Here for the Landscape page I used Andy's Stamps and a clear glitter gel pen.
Andy Skinner stamps Winters Tale and Back to Nature  and distress inks, more details on the blog.


On the protrait version I used Andy's Stamps again and this time some Deco art Americano acrylic paint, Tuscan Red. The film strip was stamped onto acetate adhered to the painted card with Diamond glaze and then mounted over the stamped plants. Some Honey distress to warm up the background and the gorgeous geese flying off into the sunset!

Next week is the last of our calendar:{
I've had great fun making these pages and I hope you like them, Gay x
