December 2014, still on time.....just!!

So here's my art journal calendar for December, and in the nick of time too! I made the background with Distress paints in Weathered Wood and Broken China, and when will wet sprayed them with Glimmer Mist Silver and Lindy's Stamp Gang spray Sea Asters. Love love love the effect, it's sort of like a marble. The month was stamped and then painted over with a Molotow red maker and the year I just wrote with the same marker.
The stamps on top and bottom are a border by Lost Coast stamps, brandnew from Santa, and embossed with Bridal embossing powder. Gorgeous don't you think?!
This year I got totally addicted to snowmen, so I had to add one on my spread. I cut it out of an old book and gessoed it so it would look white. Glued it down with matt gel medium and painted the nose, eyes, mouth and buttons on. Also painted the twig arms. Around my snowman I made a shadow with a black gelato so it would stand out more against the background. Now the hat is another day, which is due to lack of room on my page LOL! I initially wanted to give him a top hat....
I diecut the starts and stickled them with Distress Stickles Pumice Stone. Totally finished off a bottle of Distress Stickles Pumice Stone, really had to wring it out in order to stickle the last of the stars LOL! I do live the effect that the Distress Stickles aren't as shiny as the regular Stickles.
Hope you like my spread; I enjoyed making it and have decided to stop my calendar challenge; I started in March 2013 and in fact have sort of had enough of doing calendar pages, so December is a nice month to
pack it in. No worries, there is so much inspiration to do other stuff, I won't get bored yet LOL!
Have a great last couple of days in 2014! Hugs Frea
