No window speak today (lol)
My February page is ready to show off
I am really enjoying this challenge,
My finished January page will appear by magic near the bottom of this post,
(I'm on time can you believe it!!!) (lol)
For those of you that are not in the know,
this challenge lasts the whole year,
you have to journal every day in the form of 12 monthly calender pages,
& then head over to the kathryn wheel blog & link up your creation,
so Kate Crane & any one else can see what you have come up with,
Like the sound of that? you can jump in at any time along the way,
so get cracking & head over HERE to check it out.
Around blog land there are challenges up about love
(so I thought I would enter my pages for them as it contains lots of hearts)
over at simon says stamp and show the theme is, SHOW SOME LOVE.
& over at the artistic stamper creative team blog the theme is ALL THINGS LOVE.
Now with out further a do,
here's my February page,
OK my confidence is still not brave enough to stick
anything down yet in case I make a mistake,
(the hearts for the dates are not even stuck to the squares yet) lol,
Here's some shots of how the page came together,
I started with 2 sheets of A4
& then a bit of barn door to draw the eye in,
here's the end result,
Next I used a heart stencil & a spray ink (dylusions)
to get the hearts at the bottom of the pages.
Now for the stamping part,
I used Tim Holtz urban chic &
Creative Expressions vintage hearts,
sorry I don't remember who the flourishes belong to
but you can see the sheet in the picture.
the distress inks I used for the stamping are also in the picture.
that's my page, ready for embellishing
The word February is spelt from tiles that came from a hang man game
that I got out of a pound shop.
the days of the week are printed off of my computer,
as are the dates (this time I used a heart punch)
well it is valentines in Feb (Hence the heart theme)
I also used old book pages to stamp the hearts on
that are placed around the page.
the squares are part of a kit I got as a TSV on QVC ages ago,
(I decided to use more plane squares this time
as on the January page you cant read some of the writing properly)
well you do learn from your mistakes (lol)
Hope you like it!
Here's my finished January master piece (lol)
For all you double clickers out there like me,
There are a couple of spelling mistakes (lol)
I must say I did find it hard to confine what I had to say
on these little squares, on the days that I had lots to say,
I also used some clip art to enhance some of the squares.
if you would like to see how I made this page you can

Well that's about it, I don't think I've forgotten anything,
I do see I have lost 2 followers
(I hope I haven't done something to offend)
but I do see I have gained a new one (so welcome to you)
I do value all of my followers,
& I do appreciate all the wonderful comments I get from you all.
It gives my confidence a real boost.
Thanks for stopping by
