Finally, August in October (blush)...)

As usual I am sooooo late! So without further ado, here's my calendar page for August. I promiss next week I will catch up since we are having autumn break here. A whole week off, wooohooo!
I started by painting the background cream with acrylic paint. Then I added some crackle medium here and there and after that had dried I went over with taupe coloured acrylic paint and it crackled nicely.
Now that goldcoloured roundish shape at the bottom of my page was made with my brandnew Crafters Workshop stencil called Well Rounded and my brandnew very first bottle of Golden acylic paint in Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold (whoever comes up with such a name for a colour??). I then stamped several vintage looking stamps in a grey archival ink. All over the page I stamped Augustus (which is the Dutch name for August).
Now the circles for the days were cut out of a sheet of paper from K & Company calles Ancestry and it is actually 'ancient' LOL!! I added distress ink with a blender tool on one side so as to create a shadow, which I think worked very well.
Hope you like my spread. I will start on september and october a.s.a.p. Hugs Frea
