November Calendar Journal Page

Hi again folks - I told you that you might be inundated with posts LOL!!!
I actually got this months done on time.
I decided to combine a few things that I have learnt recently.  So I used a layered journal type layout which was inspired by my workshops with Finnabair but added a picture which I drew on one of Kate Cranes Journal workshops!!!  I think it all came together quite well.

First of all I chose 2 sheets of 12 x 12 from my paper stash, 1 to be cut up to make 3cm day squares and kept the other for the background (I distressed round the edge of this sheet with a distressing tool and tore it in some places).  The main paper that I use for my calendar pages is a little bigger than 12 x 12 so I put some distress ink round the edge of the backing page and glues the patterned paper on top.
I  decided to use the whimsical face I did in Kate's class and layer it up with some co-ordinating torn paper, book pages, cut and embossed leaves, tags and some brown string.  This became the feature piece of the page.
I then found a large tag and added the Month and the year and stapled that in place over some torn strips of paper.
Having attached all of these in place I added the cobweb stamping and splattered with some gold mica spray and white Dylusions.
I like the autumnal feel of the page even though it feels way too hot to be autumn at the moment!! long may it continue!!
Enjoy the lovely weather guys!!
Take care xxxx
