In all the hub-ub of the first of the month, the holiday, and still getting acclimated to school day routines, I totally forgot to share my September calendar! Actually, I thought I had already made it but when I flipped my calendar stand over to the next month, I discovered I had made TWO October calendars and had nothing for September! YOU never do anything like that, do you?!! :D So here's what I came up with:
I thought Papertrey's new Autumn Abundance set would work great for this month, and since the sunflowers have been in full bloom around here lately, I thought this beautiful image would be perfect! This image was SO much fun to color! I stamped the vase of sunflowers with Memento Rich Cocoa ink onto Papertrey's Vintage Cream cardstock and colored with these Copic markers & Spica glitter pens (gold, olive & chocolate):
I really hope you can see all the sparkle in the photo -- it really brings these beautiful flowers to life!
I printed my calendar (download available from my Download Page) in green and brown, to match the papers and colored stamp image. I used Sally Lynn's Copic Digital Color Chart to choose the green to print the "September" font in the digital match to Copic YG93 -- how cool is that?!!
Papers are some of my favorites from Papertrey's Green Tea Leaves & In Bloom 8-inch paper packs. I machine stitched around the edges of the 6-inch page. I hope you are enjoying your mid-September ... it's been raining here constantly for the past 3 days and has cooled off to really start feeling like Fall (yay)!
