Hello! Every month, I like to print out a calendar for myself that has room for me to write about the Design Team projects that I need to have done, and important dates/events to remember. There are so many printable calendars available online. Just do a quick Google or Pinterest search, and you are sure to find a ton. I printed the one I used because I loved the sweet florals on it. I just used regular printer paper.
I decided that Versa Magic inks were perfect to mimic the soft, painterly flowers because of their chalk-like finish. And to go along with the inks, I used the new Journal Bullets set from Stampendous to embellish the calendar.
I started off just stamping some of the images that I liked on days that we have little events happening. But, the imaged needed a bit more punch, so I decided to color them in using the VersaMagic inks and Fantastix.
Just by lightly rubbing the Fantastix against the ink pad gives you plenty of ink to work with. I colored the images with contrasting colors, and then they stood out nicely.
Looks like I don't have too much happening at the end of the month! Guess I'll need to make some plans. I love how simple it is to embellish life's every day tasks and events to make them all exciting and fun. I hope you'll give this a try!
