Hello! I am here today to share my May calendar page. I finished it a few days ago, but it has just taken me a while to get it posted here. I started with this PageMaps sketch:
I added a few more photos than the sketch suggests. I was also inspired by the 5/1 Throwback Thursday challenge at My Scraps and More. The challenge was to make our own background paper and to use a collection that was 2+ years old. The majority of the papers I used here are from the October Afternoon Modern Homemaker line.
For my background, I used a Studio Calico mask and some spray inks to create some texture and pattern.
I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped circle accents. I used a flower cut from the Cindy Loo cartridge. I bought the triangle pennant stamps at a garage sale last week. I just stamped them and fussy cut them and then accented the designs with some Stickles.
