The 2010 A Muse calendar is here! This year, the proceeds from the calendar will go to Water 1st.
I'm excited about this calendar because I've had a theme in mind since last year! I was inspired by Julie's cover page on her 2009 calendar and thought it would be fun to make an entire calendar using a theme of Birds & Trees. The A Muse birds and tree stamps are some of my favorites and it was fun choosing stamps for each month! I decided I needed a little more space for stamping the trees, so this year I made an A2 size calendar. As usual, I plan to share one page each month throughout the year. But here is September 2010, to give you a little taste of what is to come. I backed each page with different colors of Juliette patterned paper - which gave me an instant color palette!
There's sparkle on both the cover page and the Leafy Tree leaves. (I hand drew the little falling leaves.) I can't wait to share the rest of the pages with you next year!
ETA: For the stand, I used the same stand design that I used last year - which is Julie's slick design and she shared details on creating it - here.
