I started with a Tim Holtz die and cut out both paper and chipboard as the background. Then, I used the small easel die to cut out another piece of chipboard so the calendar stands on its own.
I added some Maya Road ribbon, a saying from The Paper Loft, metal embellishments (and paper) from Bo Bunny, a mini calendar, fish netting, and, for a laugh, a moose head a friend gave me.
The little saying was coated in Glastique Gloss and formed while it was still wet. This makes it less like paper and more like flexible plastic so it stays in place and keeps its shape.
It may look like a bit of a hodgepodge at first glance, but it means I have searched around the world, through the oceans, high and low and you are the only one for me!
