Canvas Calendar

I just got back home from a lovely week at the beach with my kids.  Oh what fun we had...but when we left it finally hit me that our summer is coming to an end.  So sad:(  I definitely have a hard time facing that fact at the end of every summer break.
Last week I had a few projects featured on other blogs.  Here is a canvas calendar I shared on the SRM Stickers blog:

 
When I saw the new 2013 calendar stickers by SRM, I decided to make a desk calendar. I painted a canvas and then stamped the stamp (Pretty Girl- Suzi Blu by Stampavie) and then paper pieced and painted her. I added the 2013 sticker from Year of Memories 2013 (SRM Stickers). I created a little section to display the calendar month stickers. I mounted each sticker on some ivory cardstock and then cut them out and used a Cropadile to punch a small hole in the top of each one. I used a nail to attach the calender months through the canvas to the wooden back so that they were secure. Each month you just change the month and you have the month ahead at a glance.

Hope you like it!  I will be back tomorrow to share some new Gina K with you!
Thanks for stopping by!
