After the last two calendar pages I found this weeks September Calendar page over at The Craft Barn a nice easy one to do. The Theme was 'Back to School' using an old paper colour and red lines.
I made my white sheet of paper look as it it had fallen in a dirty puddle of water in the playground by inking my non stick craft sheet with 'Antique Linen' distress ink and adding water via a paint brush , mixing all around and quickly laying my paper down in it. The leaves were stamped and then cut out and the same technique used as above by mixing 'Wild Honey', ''Spiced Marmalade' and 'Fired Brick' onto my sheet and laying the leaves down to achieve an autumn fallen leaves effect. (September to me was always shuffling through the leaves on the pavements on the way to school).
The days of the month were ruled up using red pencil. I then found this cute boy and girl stamp in my stash and a retro schools theme emerged. Also found in my stash an old school exercise book which has price of 3d old money on the front and the standard 'Useful Information' sheet printed on the back. Unfortunately the book cover is blue which did not photo copy up light enough to use so I re did some of the tables in word and printed out. I can hardly believe that we had to learn all these tables and measurements by heart . Wonder if anyone else of a certain age group remembers them!!!!
Randomly stamped the boy and girl over the days and coloured in using pencils to complete the look.
