Calendar challenge

Well, I didn't post my October calendar as I had not completed it until yesterday!
I have had such a busy month but I made sure to jot something down for each day so I could catch up when I got the chance.

October page done with Dylusions paints and sprays, stencils, stamps and a little digi image from The Octopode Factory.
Samhain is the pagan celebration on 31st October, a time to remember our ancestors and loved ones that have passed (hence the stamped faces amongst the trees!) and it is also our new year and a time to give thanks for all the blessings of the past year.

November page done with Dylusions paints and sprays and metallic acrylic paint splattered everywhere!
These pages were done in a bit of a rush as I didn't want to fall further behind, but I am quite pleased with how they have turned out!
Check out everyone elses calendar pages over at Kates blog.

You asked about paper clay on my blog, the one I use is called Hearty but I know there is another one, not sure of its name. It is very light, so ideal for making embellishments. I get it at my local craft shop.

The splatters made a nice firework effect. It's a pretty page.

Both pages look fantastic and November certainly does not look as if it was done in a hurry! Love the houses along the bottom!

Lovely autumnal colour for October but November is gorgeous so vibrant and love the idea of splattering all the colours over the page brill.

What a great firework.
Somehow your page remembers me of some books about christams and new year from my childhood.

ooh lovely pages. October is suitably creepy and wonderful fire work effect for November.

Sandra Hall said...
