A Brand New Year (Character Constructions Calendar 2017)

Hello Everyone
One of the highlights for my 2016 has to be the invitation to be part of Character Constructions 2017 calendar!
The calendar is now available from Character Constructions and I know there was a special offer with purchase of Character Constructions stamps which Catherine Moore mentioned on Facebook although I cannot say for definite if that offer is still available.
The calendars are printed onto quality paper, I would liken it to a satin feel with lots of room to write appointments.
This is the cover as designed by Catherine herself – it is pure fun!
cc2017For my month, I was trying to capture Autumn/Fall, with the falling leaves and rustic colours. Yes, I did manage to incorporate my layers, with stained crochet lace and a lovely piece of vintage wallpaper from my dear friend Dorthe.  The fussy cut leaves and branches overhang the Autumnal Maiden with her feathery friends. I was mindful of keeping layers to a minimum for the purposes of printing.
