Im about to make another gift for some friends, I dont know what Im making yet but heres the background Ive made onto a sheet of chipboard – whatever it is! Ive made 10 of these in all as I plan on giving them out for gifts to online friends.
I finally decided what this colourful background will be! An Art Calendar for 2008! I bought a batch of calendar pads for the 12 Days Of Christmas swap on our swap group and I have some left so I decided to make the 10 handpainted chip board pieces into Art Calendars.
To finish these calendars off I punched 2 holes at the top of each chipboard piece and inserted 2 eyelets then I add a strip of cord for hanging the calendar with.
I decided I didnt want to cover up the background too much because the background is the main star on these art boards! So I had to think on how to add the final bits without covering too much background up! I decided to stamp the word ART using my large making memories philidelphia font foam letter stamps with black acrylic and finally added the calendar pad to finish.
Heres a scan of one of the the completed art calendars:
