Ready for August!

Stamps by Invoke Arts
Ink sprays and stencils by Dylusions

Wow! For once I'm early with my monthly art calendar and all ready for the next few weeks :-) I used the gorgeous ink sprays by Dylusions for my background - such a quick and easy way to get a vibrant background. I then stamped and stencilled on it to create a bit of texture (including some stamps from Spring Sprung by Tim Holtz)

I have always loved the quirky stamps by Invoke Arts, especially these funky birds:

And here it is as a work in progress. My desk isn't always this tidy by the way ;-)

And just to prove that I do actually fill my days in each month, here's July all finished:

  3. I love the birds, but what strikes me is how much you get on one of those squares. Very impressive, as always.

  4. Lol, found my one and only attempt at joining this challenge was from January 2011! I still love the idea and can't understand why I find it so tricky! A well, I love looking at yours - the colours and textures are fab :)
