In a rare departure for this blog, this WOYWW post contains......drumroll......wait for it......WORK!
Below is the second page of the 2011 calendar. Get ready for a red hot and pulsating February. Now I'm not normally a girl for hearts (flowers are another matter entirely), but I thought that OH's birthday, which falls mid-month, deserved a big juicy red heart. So I broke out the pigment inks again and swirled away vigorously with the kitchen towel. The squared border is made of two overlapping ink pads, and there's a bit of pearlescent rocket red in the heart. I've decided that I'll draw the date boxes freehand this month - which will be a bit traumatic, but I'm willing to give it a go - so for now, consider this a work in progress.
If you're interested in seeing an icy blue January 2011 page, you'll find it in the previous post.
And I do need to share some of my lovely sales stash from Hobbycraft: stamps, stickers, journal blanks, elegant dress form toppers, stamps from the sea and a twizzly wire worker that makes interesting beads.
Apologies in advance if I don't manage to get around all the WOYWW desks quickly this week. I'll be away for a couple of days (house is occupied, so no harm in posting that here), and I don't know yet if we have WiFi access. I did manage to do the rounds last week, and enjoyed a peek at lots of celebrations. To the many of you afflicted by foul pestilences (pesteli?), I hope you are now on the mend.
