Time for more fun over at Darcy Wilkinson’s Blog with her February Calendar Page Challenge.
So the rules for February are..
1.. Keep a part of the original picture and incorporate that into your design
2, Technique - Paint effect caused by using cling film or bubble wrap
3. Add some corrugated card
4. Blog your calendar page and link up from Feb 1st 2015
My image for February is a hand drawn face i made last year in my learning to draw journal, took a picture with my phone then played with it using the Pixlr-o-Matic App adding a filter on top of the image, emailed it to myself and then printed it out onto a calendar page using software from my computer
by printing off my own calendar image instead of buying one the paper i have used is copy paper which makes for interesting and unexpected outcomes.
Used bubble wrap and Snowflake Fresco Paint from Paper Artsy to cover everywhere except the face, i cut out a large circle from the Tim Holtz movers and shapers circles die to protect that area.
Went over two of the corner areas with DecoArt Quinacridone Gold, then used more bubble wrap technique over the top. Tried the cling film technique but wasn’t successful and left me with the colour being removed from the face and surrounding areas.
The image looked terrible but decided to go with it’s imperfections as it added a little more interest to the page.
For the corrugated part of the Challenge i had some pieces from cutting out some of the Tim Holtz on the edge die Pennants.
Coloured the corrugated pieces with Quinacridone Gold and Turquoise DecoArt Media paints then stamped over the top using the Zendoodle Filler stamps by Lindsay Mason.
I drew the lines of the face back in at this stage as i really did want the face to be the focal image.
Went over the top of the corrugated pieces with Treasure Gold in a few different colours, added the February 2015 to the frame and then added the page to my textured backgrounds journal.
February page in the journal all finished.
Thank you Darcy really enjoyed this months Challenge and will be working on March’s very soon.
