i can’t believe i forgot to post a picture of my february calendar. i have already started to fill it so my apologies for the scribbles. but as you can see i do actually write something in each day

as this is my second year i wanted to mix up the colouring of pages as i go throughout the year…last year was a mainly pink page for valentines and all. this year i focused more on purple as the stone of the month is amethyst and 3 of us are born in February.

the products used on this page are the stencils of the month from Stencil Girl Products (http://www NULL.stencilgirlproducts NULL.com/stencil-club-s/1850 NULL.htm) in November. still my favourite set yet though the January peacock is slowly becoming another one of my favourites! I used Wendy Vecchi’s (http://studio490art NULL.blogspot NULL.ca) white embossing paste through the stencil and then allowed it to dry. i love the sponginess (if that is even a word!) of her embossing paste!

but prior to layering the stencil/embossing powder combo i sprayed my background pages with art anthology (http://artanthologyinc NULL.com/blog/) sprays and once i laid down my ‘days’ i sprayed again to take away the whiteness of the rectangles.

as a final step for my page i had doodled around all parts using my signo uniball pen. i love this pen and am now in search for a few LOT more so i can share with my students in class!
