2012 Calendar Challenge - Circles


I think that you can see where my circles are on this calendar page.  The background is some spiral patterned paper and I used my bare tree stamp again.  Punched circles of red and two different greens are stuck over the branches and on the ground at the foot of the tree.  I added an embossed red border and the phrase "Seasons of Mists" but it looked unfinished.  So  I stamped the tree again on a piece of paper and cut around the trunk to use as a mask while I pounced yellow orange and red distress inks to represent the sun.

The challenge can be found over at The Craft Barn HERE

Thank you all for your kind comments over the past weeks, it really is encouraging.  Off to complete the challenge with the last calendar.

Wow, that must have taken a while to stick all those circles on the tree. Very bright and cheery.

Hope you didn't get RSI from all the punching ! You were right about adding that touch of yellow, it throws the tree forward. Lovely page.

What a great idea to use dots to make up the tree's leaves, lovely colours on the page and photograph.
