Ok...this is an example of something that didn't end up the way I started thinking about it in my head. I ebossed the image and then used water color pencils. I haven't been able to use gamasol, but what I like to do is use a blending stump and the medium you can buy to refill blending pens with. Make sense? Then, it just kind of evolved from there...I love the way it turned out. I wanted to give it kind of a (something) feel, so I trimmed the edges with an x-acto knive. The background stamped w/ Speckled wheel in Certianly Celery.
I made several of these calanders for work. Here is the link to the template/directions. Enjoy...they are very fun and easy.
