Wrapping up the 2011 calendar

This weekend, I'll be finishing up the Collage Stuff 2011 calendar swap. I previously posted a calendar cover. I did nine of those and couldn't do 4 more. I came up with this design for the remaining 4 covers. The background is a vintage dictionary page sprayed with some gold glitter spray and overstamped with a background stamp and blue ink. The waves are from the October Afternoon Seaside paper pack. The memorandum background and the bingo card are from a collage sheet I bought on Etsy. I changed the bingo card to say "2011" at the top and tweaked the blue color a bit.

The mermaid... I have to do a mermaid skinny book page this month too. I couldn't find any mermaids anywhere that I liked. I made my own. I bought a collage sheet of mermaid tails on Etsy and combined it with an image from my Starlets collage sheet. She's highlighted with a yellow Spica glitter pen. The white fish German scrap is also highlighted with the yellow Spica glitter pen. I used glue dots to glue down the Yellow Iris Shell Sequins. I colored the clear jewels at the bottom with a blue Copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, Lisa!

    I'm so loving this cover! My favorite colors are cobal blue and green, and you certainly hit the mark for at least one of those! Can I PLEASE have one of these blue covers for my calendar? Pretty please?
