December has arrived, and I bet January will be here before we know it, too!
This month's Year of Collage calendar uses the colors of Christmas, but with a non-religious theme, so hopefully it appeals to many folks.
The background uses Stampin' Up!'s cardstock color Kiwi Kiss (retired). The background paper with the musical theme was from my scrapbooking stash, and then I found two handmade papers, on in red and one in green, both with gold accents. The pocket is made from a piece of vellum. The holly in the corner and the gold border are both what Artchix Studio calls "German Scrap" - and the holly, which was originally gold, was colored with Copic markers (alcohol based - water based markers will not stick to the coated surface of the "scrap").
I stippled the month with a combination of SU's Kiwi Kiss and Garden Green inks, and mounted it on a tag made from Kiwi Kiss that had been stamped with "script" in gold ink. The fibers in a combination of bright green/gold, dark green, and red provided the finishing touches!!
