November Calendar Page

Back today with my calendar page for the month of November.  Every month's design has been created with images from Daydream Designs.  I think I can say that November's page is my favorite.  The background paper is from the Fall Digi Paper Pack.  It's sort of a rustic grunge look.  It's the top 3rd paper from the left.

Then I started creating the scene for the page.  The calendar is the same one I've used for the whole year.  It's the 2013 mini calendar files.  I recolored it to a bright red orange.  I inserted the tree image from Owl Always Love You Color Digi Set.  Then I had the most fun adding the owls that are sitting on the branches.

By using the png files I could layer them to give the impression that their feet were really on the branch.  Here's a close-up photo.

Aren't they adorable!  I could even rotate the owls so that they were at the right angle for the particular branch they sat on.  At the bottom of the tree I added baskets of leaves and gourds from the Bushel and a Peck Colorized Set.

Tomorrow is the page for December and I will show off the entire calendar, complete with the stand.  See you then.


  1. LOVE what you've done with the images...the baskets in front of the tree. GORGEOUS! And that paper as the background is spectacular. You've done an amazing job with all of your pages. I've picked them all up from your site here to showcase on the 3-D blog (DDD). What a fabulous collection of beautiful artwork, Vicki. Is it ok too, if I show your finished project with the calendar holder. I'll have Helen put it on Facebook too, with your permission.

  2. Wow! What an impressive page! I love how you combined so many different sets. I never think of doing that! Great job!

  3. Wow tor, I love what you did with the feet on the branches. very creative.
