Ok here we are - another month nearly over - wow time goes too quickly!! I have been doing the Calendar journal pages since the beginning of the year thanks to Kate Crane, but I struggled a little with this page this month, and I have never spent this much time on a page before - though I have to say a lot of that is because of the cutting out of the main elements!!
I had a basic idea of what I wanted to do as far as the background went (but that's always the easy bit! Dylusions spray inks and some stencils and your off lol), but had no idea what I was going to put on as the focal point.
Fortunately on the morning I was going to do some more to the page I saw a new release by the very creative Lily Chilvers - The Octopode Factory (on etsy) - 'Clockwork Sun' - which I instantly fell in love with and bought to download - already knowing that it would work wonderfully on this page. So thanks Lily!!!! Then after a little computer manipulation, lots of cutting and some colouring with inktense blocks and a water brush I was well on the way and happy with the results.
I struggled with a quote as I have seen so many good ones lately, but this one has been in my head a lot as that's how I seem to feel about half the days this month!! As the image is not that clear, the quote says 'Lets go to bed, I'm tired of this day I need a new one!!!!' Lol, so that was the decision made for me.
Hope you all have a great August!! x
