This is my March calendar page - not sure if I like it, I really debated over posting it!! I think that this is the busiest, most chaotic layout I have ever done. It seems so busy that your eyes can't focus on one thing. I think that I am going to blame it on too much caffine. Hopefully March will go by fast so I don't have to look at it very long in my Kitchen.
About the only thing I liked about the layout is the owl - I ran him through the cuttle bug by the way to put some texture on him. He reminds me of the owl from the old Tootsie Pop commercials!
I had a couple of questions about my layout - so here goes.
1. Papers - The background paper is cream cardstock. The owl is cut from kraft paper. Trees, Leaves, Font and Owl feet are from American Craft paper - I found that this double sided paper cuts VERY well in the Cricut.
2. Spiral - hand drawn, font on spiral is my handwriting.
3. Font - LD Flutter
4. Tree - svg designed by me.
5. Owl - The owl is inspired by Kim Hughes - her website is http://paperhugs.typepad.com/
Kim Hughes has an entire line of stamps that are sold by Cornish Farms - they are all CUTE! An interesting side note - she has started designing for Paper Trey Inc a line of SVG's. So far all she has are cards but hopefully she will start coming out with her characters she has on her stamps.
