I have been busy lately, albeit not on my blog. I have made several mixed media items, which I have really enjoyed & will show you soon.
The first one was inspired by Graphic 45 blog. There was a perpetual calendar made from Graphic 45 items, I challenged myself to make something similar with stash I already had, as it was expensive to purchase all the bits needed from Graphic 45. I did however have the Time to Flourish 8x8 paper pad.
I then made 2 little boxes & used a circle punch to make the slot at the front, where all the numbers are stored. I cut out some of the stamps in the cut apart section of the Time to Flourish paper pad & stuck them to the boxes.
I then made the months, by cutting out each month from the paper pad & taking several elements from each month to stick to an extension to the original month like this.
The numbers are made using old tags I had, covering them in paper from my stash & putting peel offs on them, which I had covered in Gliding Wax.
There it is, my perpetual calendar inspired by Graphic 45 here
