YAY!! Finally time to start getting messy with Darcy....
I have been joining her in her yearly projects for some time now, and every year is something totally different.
For 2015 we are altering/arting on Calendars!!, and each month Darcy is going to set us items and techniques to use on our pages.
I chose and prepared mine in advance, pasting each image into an old photo album Which you can see HERE
January's page is ELVIS...well he is known as the instigator of Rock as we now it...
This is the original page...
And this is how it looks now...
The "King" and his minions :D
(We have to leave part of the original image visible)
It seemed only fitting that he should have a crown..
(one of the "must use" for this month is book pages)
(The background is actually a pale blue)
("must use" crackle effect)
("must use" book pages)
Chose to use Darcy's own stamps from Paper Artsy in my journal pages each month.
Also, as the journal cover is "POE"d I have decided to use a quote from one of his poems on the facing page each month. I wanted a quote that said something about "beginnings"
"...- in my childhood, in the dawn of a most stormy life-..."
from Alone by Edgar Allen Poe
I am planning on adding more personal journalling to each page as the month progresses, so it will be a record of my year :D
