I used the back of the canvas so that it could hold my twelve calendar months.
To start, I painted the canvas with gesso and let it dry before I stamped and sponged it. A sturdy band holds the paper calendar months in place when hanging, which I stamped as well before I put it in place.
The calendar months are printed on postcards and the edges are sponged carefully in the colours of the seasons.
Winter = blue, Spring = green, Summer = yellow, Autumn = red.
The background papers are white cardstock, and on some I stamped the same stamp as I used on the main image in a lighter colour.
The cards of the month images are all the same size as a postcard and made from different designs, depending on what the month requires.
I will be back next time with more of the calendar months!
Thank you so much Gerrina for your beautiful project, we will look forward to the second instalment next week.
