Chances are you have a friend or co-worker still wondering what to get them? here’s a simple quick idea. Desktop or wall Calendar.
Desktop or wall Calendar 2011
- Graphic45 Debutante and Christmas past line
- Want2scrap rhinestones
- Rub n buff
- Glue Dots International
- Iridescent Medium
- Ranger distress ink
- Pearl Ex
- Ek Success scallop punch
- Calendar download
Remove the glass from the frame and mix a bit of the iridescent medium with Pearl ex. With a brush cover the mat with your chosen color. I chose a light gold. Let dry 5 min.
Use distress ink to edge the mat insert.
Cut Graphic45 paper of choice by using the mat as your guide.
Print calendar and reduce the size to fit the glass frame. Use distress ink on the printed calendar too. Adhere to the bottom of the paper right under the mat.
Cut a strip of coordinating Graphic45 paper using the scallop punch. Distress the edge and adhere to the top of the calendar to cover the cut line.
Cut a strip of ribbon and adhere to the top of the scallop strip.
Replace glass top and insert into the frame.
Now for decorating the glass portion!
Follow Miss Tracy's directions to make a rosette from yesterday’s post .
Add rhinestones from Want2srap to the center of the flowers on the glass.
Add flourish rhinestones and add more rhinestones to create visual interest.
I cut the flourish to fit the size I needed and added more rhinestones to match the rose centers.
Adhere rosettes with Glue Dots. Adhere embellished tag from Graphic 45 Debutante collection then add buttons.
I ran out of the medium sized buttons so instead I colored a white button with E79 to fit the color scheme I needed.
I added another circle to the tag and rhinestones to complete the look.
The frame was too shiny for me so I used Rub n Buff to add more of a patina.
