Something For A Man is the theme that Julia has chosen for the latest Craft-Room Challenge.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors for the challenge. They are based in New Zealand and make wonderful stamps
Last year I went to an Andy Skinner workshop where we altered a book box so for the challenge I decided to alter a wooden calendar to go with it.
I painted the calendar with gesso then adhered some chipboard cogs. I then painted it black and when it was dry brushed it with some DecoArt metalic paint, I also added some gold Rub and Buff. I added a couple of metal cogs and a game spinner.
I coloured the month and date blocks with Distress stain but I don't like them so I'm going to change them - I'll probably give them the same finish as the base.
The rest of the DT have made some fabulous samples so why not visit the Craft-Room to take a look.
