Look at me! I have my calendar page done in time for the first of the month! This month, I was once again inspired by a sketch at Stick it Down:
I stuck pretty close to the sketch and I had some fun with Basic Grey's Capture line. I really enjoyed working around the triangle paper on this one.
I was stumped for a bit as to what to use for embellishments, but then I found the the fun stripey Prima flowers and thought they worked well with the papers. I pulled out some other flowers in a coordinating blue and a couple metal flowers. Behind my title and journaling block, I used a Bella Blvd. feather for some added texture. My title was made with some old Basic Grey letter stickers. I used the periods from that set to separate my events in the journaling block.
I felt that the light blue paper I used across the bottom was a little plain, so I fussy cut the strip from a piece of patterned paper (to which my husband said "good luck" when he saw me start cutting it out). I really like what it adds to the layout.
The 8/25 challenge over at My Scraps and More was to tear at least two things on your layout. I tore the far right end of my washi tape and I also added a couple of small pieces of paper that I tore to bring some of the yellow over the the left side of my layout.
