Hello............

August!

Hi there......I can't believe how quickly this year is going......

Here are my August Calendar pages all ready to be filled in.........


I didn't really like the background when I was working on it......but I remember the lovely Kate Crane saying all pages go through that...and just to keep working on them and they do get better! Now I love ♥ my pages!

I just brayered acrylic paints over the background and then over-stamped...The Arrows and the word are both from an Andy Skinner stencil. My August letters are from an ancient Tim Holtz foam stamp set...I did manage to stamp the 'g' upside down!

My days do tend to be the same a lot of the time...so I found a Hero Arts stamps set, that again is ancient! and just stamped and doodled on some days! August is also my birthday month..so there had to be cake on there!

My gorgeous girlie is one of Trish Lattimer's new stamps ...love these...available here  I just added some legs to her!

Lets hope that August goes a bit more slowly than July....though I suspect it won't!!!

Your backgrounds are gorgeous Sheila. I think as well as long as you are enjoying the progress that's all that matters.. August is flying by isn't it! Loving how you altered Trish's stamp ♥♥
