Grunge calendar hanging


I painted the chipboard using basic acrylic paint, and then used mica powder and glimmer mist to add a subtle sheen and variation in base color.

The flowers were made over the course of a year as I tested new ways to mangle paper. There are various links to flower tutorials for similar projects listed at the right. A few vintage finds were added for fun. This was a “use what you have” type project inspired by a sample I saw at CKU from Crafty Secrets.

  • Vintage images from Crafty Secrets
  • Chipboard pages from Michaels in the dollar section
  • Rosettes hand made by me
  • Calendar designed by me
  • Ranger Distress inks
  • Glimmer Mist (on everything!)
  • Die Cuts: Sizzix and Tim Holtz Alterations dies
  • Fabri-Tac adhesive. Zip dry would also work perfectly on this type of project.

I hardly comment, but i did some searching and wound up here "Grunge calendar hanging".

And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it simply me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Be watchful ωіth ωаshіng sоԁa and use gloνes as it is vеry alkalinе.
Sіtting therе оn your counter, it hаrԁly apреаrs to be сapable
of such miгacleѕ, but the inіtіal tіmers and
thе seaѕοned cοoks alike ωill
inԁulge in addіng that old faѕhioned flavor to theіr pгеferrеd diѕhes.
