It’s time for the next installment of the Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge! This month we are featuring March calendars. My original calendar was also a March calendar for 2012 so I made a March calendar for 2013 to get a head start on gifts for next year!
I’ve been using the Frame Your Imagination calendar stand so I stuck with that same format this time. I was REALLY wanting to use the new Totally Tags Spring for my calendar and I just happened to get lucky that Easter is in March in 2013. I selected the Easter Blessings tag and colored it with Copics and die cut it using the Totally Tags Dies. I layered some MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up and added a bit of twine thread, a Prima rosette and then placed the tag under the rosette. I sanded a few edges and sponged a few others with Ranger Vintage Photo. Glued it all together and done!
To hang the calendar I used Jumbo Cool Metal Eyelets and the rings that come with the frame.
When I originally received the frame I painted it white with acrylic gesso and then sanded all the corners down just a bit to distress it. Then I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a cheap sponge to add a bit more distressing to the edges. Be sure to wipe the dust off really well before you add the ink otherwise it gets really messy.
