Craft Barn 2015 Calendar Challenge – January

I didn’t want to make a spiral calendar as I like to use a lot of embellishments which would make the pages too bulky to lie flat.

I have always admired ATCs as, although they are small, they are very effective. So I decided to make my calendar as 12 separate ATCs to be mounted on a 12″ x 12″ board. A separate calendar tab can be hung on the bottom if desired. This makes it more a piece of artwork that is not just confined to one year.

January challenge is aqua & snowflakes

I raided my ‘blue / green’ scrap paper drawer for suitable paper. Since they are all scraps, I’m not sure where they came from. I do know that the butterfly paper at the bottom is from the DCWV Street Lace pad. I cut the snowflake from black glitter card using the Quickutz snowflake die. The stamped quote is part of a stamp from the Dylusions the Right Words set. The word January is cut from a newspaper. Small button, brads & ribbon from my stash. It might look a bit insignificant on its own but I am visualising the end result of 12 brightly coloured ATCs mounted on a black background.
