Desk Calendar Pages


Three more Desk Calendar pages for you today.....these were for my January Swap over at Craftmad.  You can find more pages here.

Now my daughter was looking over my shoulder while I was creating these pages and was loving how the papers looked so good on the images.   So I asked her to pick an image for me.....which is this cute bear and mouse a free digital from Beccy's Place.  Next I asked my daughter to pick out papers to use.  Now they are not what I would have chosen but it has turned out lovely.  e.g. I would never have chosen this spotty paper for the flower.   I have coloured the bear and mouse with my watercolour pencils.  Finished the card with some paper piercing.
So this page is paper pieced and pierece. :-)


For may I have used another wonderful image drawn by Ruth over at Passion for Stamps called Pip Hangin' Out.  I have paper pieced his jumper and pants.....I used my white gel pen to add the dots across the middle of the jumper.  Coloured the remainder of him with my watercolour pencils and Copic Ciao E51.  I added some Faux stitching to each side of the image by piercing the paper and then joining the holes with my metallic pen.  To finish I added a few star stickers.


This is the one and only Tilda I own.  I so love how she has turned out with the paper piecing...I think it really makes her dress come to life.  The papers are all Stampin Up.  I have again used my watercolour pencils on her hair and Copic Ciao E51 on her skin.  Finished the page off with flower rub ons and bling.

I would love to enter these cards into the following challenges.
