RSD Jan/Feb 2016 Progressive Challenge

The first part of this Progressive Challenge is
'Anything Goes using an RSD image'

I thought I would share my calendar which I have just made to celebrate the NEW YEAR!
Hope yours is a good one!

I started with a piece of plywood 'burned' with electricity
 as detailed here in my blog in November.
I painted around the edge with black gesso.

I added square cards using rings at the top.
These cards will flip over for successive months.
I added a calendar pad at the bottom on layers
 of red card and DP from Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale.

The first page uses RSD's January Image (2015) coloured with Promarkers.

I stamped January with a clear stamp I had in my stash (Inkadinkadoo)
 and added a button and ribbon.

Take a look next month for February!!

Happy Crafting!
