November Calendar Page

If you are following along on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Hop today, you have arrived from Barb Hardeman's fantastic blog.  If you have come on your own, you will want to go to Magnolia-licious Highlites to start at the beginning.

My month was November for the Calendar we had so much fun putting together for Diana.

I've used #276 Tilda With Lantern, #568 Winter Forest, #1416 Snowflakes which I got from Magnolia-licious.  Please contact  Diana at Magnolia-licious about availability on these.

All the stamps were stamped in gold pigment ink and Tilda, the words and the trees were embossed with gold embossing powder.  The frame is a Spellbinders die cut out in gold metallic paper.  The icicles and snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches.  I've punched the icicles in the gold metallic paper and also acetate.  I put Stickles on the acetate icicles.  (That's why the reflection on the photo.)  Tilda and the trees are water colored with Distress Inks.  The background paper is Magnolia Something New, Something Old.  Also used white Liquid Applique on Tilda's hat and cuffs.

The top was left open on the frame to slide a picture in as an option instead of having the words.

I'm thinking if I got started now, I could make one Tilda themed page each month and by the end of the year would have a complete calendar for next year!!!

Thanks for stopping by and following along our fun little hop.  Would love to have you take the challenge and create some calendar pages too!  All of the details are at Magnolia-licious Highlites.  And as always appreciate any comments you take the time to leave!!!
Enjoy every day!!!
Patti Jo

Hello Patti Jo, Adorable! November is usually the unpopular month of the year, you gave him his lettre de noblesse. Introduction to winter, with the delicate snow, and just a beautiful touch of gold to remind us that december is coming with the holidays! Tilda is so cute, she is puttling light on all this. I love!
Hugs. Danielle.

This is really lovely Patti Jo. I think gold is definitely a highly underused color and this showcases exactly the stunning effect it can have. TFS
