Fairy Needle Easel Calendar (Fairy Tale Challenge #111)

Happy Friday everyone :-D


It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Theme for this fortnight is #111, Stoff oder nähen / Fabric or Sewing.
Use fabric on your project, fully or partly, sew something, or use a stamp with fitting image... anything you like. :-D

Fairy Needle Easel Calendar is my project for this challenge.


I used lovely Ms Manning digital stamp 'Fairy Needle', which includes lovely Fairy and separate "encouragement" sentiment. I like the layout of colored sample from Mo Manning and I decided to make mine same. 

Image is paper pieced and it has 2 layers. I printed images on white 160 grams paper, colored them, fussy cut one image and colored it´s edges with black pen and glued cut out image over another image. Here is a photo of two layers.

I covered Fairy´s wings with FIMO Gloss Varnish. I was experimenting a bit and was wondering what will happen when I use this medium on paper. :-D 

Calendar dimensions are 105 mm x 148 mm (4 1/8" x 5 7/8").  
I made this easel calendar using a great photo tutorial Kalendarkarte - calendar card from Stempeleinmaleins.


I made monthly calendar using MS Word. After printing, I cut out same sized rectangles and glued them together on top. 

I decorated calendar with paper flowers, plastic self adhesive half beads and punched out butterflies. At the end I smeared Pastel-White pearl maker over butterflies and flowers.

    1. A beautiful card and teamed up with a font that seems just right. Mo's images always amaze me and of course the unique way in which each of us use them.
