Calendar Pages for August this time.

Hi hello and how are you today? Yippee it's Saturday, the weekend:0)
I have made some more pages for my Craft Barn Calendar.

I used Layers of  Heat Bondable film and metal flakes for this one and she is a Katzelkraft stamp, copics to colour her stole and the elegant hound was coloured with a water based marker.

Click on the images to enlarge them, if you would like to see closer.

This is the landscape page for August. Katzelkraft Airplane stamp.
Here the compass has been coated with lots of layers of paint and sanded and I added P.A Fresco Metallic on top followed by Distress crackle clear. Sakura glitter gel pen for the planesI think it gave it quite a nice finish in the end. There are details on the Craft Barn blog and this is all part of a competition, you can join in at any time. Hope you have a great weekend!

Gay I was blown away by this !!! Your lady is just so beautiful and blingy and the dog collar is a fabulous touch. I really need to come and spend a week at your house to relieve you of all of your crafty knowledge ! The second page is outstanding that stamp and the fab compass are just amazing ......ah back to the drawing board for me.
