The last post of 2014!

It's been a mite bit hectic here in Kathiland with birthdays, Chanukah, and Christmas with all the prep that entails, which in our case involved traveling, cooking, catering, etc. Sadly, it also included receiving special gifts that kept on giving. No not stds, but colds and other nastiness. Blech.

So, here's my last project for the year, which is 2015 tear-off calendar, which should keep me aware of the date. Or not. Mostly not! The photo was just retaken outside in the New Year's noon-day sun, so there are some monster shadows! FYI, that's a flag stand that served to hang it for the photo!

I'm not going to go into my usual blather except to say that a whole lotta time and products were used to create lots of texture. There's flock, crackle, modeling paste, sparkly embossing, mica, and vellum!

Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paints, Media Gesso, Matte Medium, Black Modeling Paste, White Crackle Paint, and One Step Crackle by DecoArt and Stack Art Cling Rubber Stamps Regal Bird Kit, Stack Art Kraftboard Regal Bird Kit, Stack Art Elements Fusion Kit, old white and brown Fun Flock by Stampendous, the Our Home Album and Finishers die set by Top Dog Dies, a banner set by Die-namics, A Hint of Lime font dies by Die-Versions, Frills by DoodleBug, stencils, various inks, sparkly embossing powder, chains, and charms were used, plus some ancient eyelets! Such fun to pound the bejeepers out of those!

Now that it's finished, I can't decide if I like it, but after all that work and all the products used, it'll be up on the wall of my craft room.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy New Year!
