So it's almost October, my month... my favourite Month!!
Autumn is getting better, rainier, colder... :)
And with it all comes a new Desktop Calendar.
This time I wanted to make a loew key piece, since I really just tried my hand on smaller things, partially using traditionally pieces, which I digitalised.
I hand-dyed and aged a new Din A4 size piece of paper then scanned it. I used not just tea, but red cabbage.
I distressed parts of the paper with a tea bag, roughing its texure.
Then I created an aged piece of paper with the same dimensions, but digitally.
Afterwards I did blend both textures together... with old folding marks, scratches and all.
Adding the border and a few extras like the main star sign of the month (according to the Western Astronomy) I tried to give it the last final touches.
I wanted it to be a bit more simplistic, really focusing on mixing different mediae.
