|Perpetual Calendar - French Country Collection by Graphic 45|
Here's a really useful altered calendar to make so you can keep track of the date. It's really quick to make, easy to cover and small enough to use up left over papers from other projects.
I picked this wooden calendar in Trago Mills the last time we were in Falmouth. It 's a great place to get hold of cheap blanks to decorate and if you're down that way worth a visit.
The blocks were stained with watered down green acrylic paint which give them a worn look. Distress stains also work really well as they soak into to he wood leaving the numbers to stand out. The main frame was painted with black acrylic paint and once dry covered in papers from the 8 x 8 French Country collection by G45 and the co ordinating 6 x 6 patterns and solids that go with the collection.
