Hi all, just popping by today to share a St. Patrick’s Day inspired altered calendar page. I used this calendar from 100 Proof Press. These are really great quality printed on very heavy weight paper/card so I was able to work right on the page and had no issues at all with it. I am entering this into the 100 Proof Press Facebook challenge which is ‘Bloom’.
I have a quick step by step on how I created this below….
Mask off the bottom half of the calendar to protect it. I used post its.
Ink it in shades of green, I used peeled paint and forest moss distress inks.
Cut a sheet of tissue paper to be slightly bigger than the square of the page. Crumple this up and the glue it down to the page. I used multi medium for this. Make sure to leave lots of the crinkles in the tissue paper for texture.
Glue down some die cut flowers.
Create some embellishments for the page. I used the Hot Air Balloon stamp from 100 Proof Press stamps.
Place these on the page. I strung my shamrocks on some twine between the hot air balloons. You may notice I also outlined the flowers to get more definition!
Hang it up and enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed this St. Patrick’s Day inspired page!
