Welcome to May and June in our calendar series. We’d love you to join in our challenge, using the sketches created by our design team.
As each of our design team members has their own special style, it will enable you to explore a wealth of different sketches and techniques. We’ll be awarding random prize packs over the weeks for entries we receive! You don’t need to use the same products as our pages, but if we show them on the blog we would prefer to product to be from Aussie Scrap Source suppliers.
So – get scrapping and email them to us at aussiedt(at)iinet(dot)net(dot)au. We’ll need pics of your own May and June pages by next Wednesday 31st October.
We can’t wait to see how you interpret the sketches so that we can showcase what you create! This week Jilly van Iperen and Louise Williams bring you their own very individual designs.
Instead of using a photo as the main feature to her calendar page for May, Jill has cut out one of the stunning birds from the JBS range, coloured it and then added it to her page. This could easily be replaced by a photo though (black and white would be stunning!).
By cutting 2" strips of the text papers and wetting them thoroughly and then scrunching them, Jill has added them to the top and bottom of her page and finished them off with some rich velvet ribbon. Add some Studio Calico flowers painted in complementary colours and you have the gorgeous flowers of autumn falling across your page.
Louise W used a combination of Graphic 45 papers along with a Prima clock face to illustrate the "moment in time" theme of the page. By fussing cutting flower elements as her embellishments, the whole page has a very co-ordinated look and the simple addition of the paint pen adds a pop of white against the blue and balances the colour in the title and clock face.
The border was created by cutting out a central square in the blue cardstock and distressing the edges before adhering both pieces onto a red piece of cardstock. With the edges distressed and slightly rolled, it allows a thin strip of colour to show through and ties in with the red in the photograph.
