After picking out an 8x8 background paper with the brown and the leaves (DCVW), I coloured a piece of CI silk card with sprays in light blue and green. The trees were stamped in the middle so that I got blue for the sky and some green lower down. The remaining areas gave coordinating backgrounds for the sentiment, the birds and some punched out leaves.
This will be a flip calendar, so the calendar grid for September will be behind the October page and can not yet be done. I have updated the August page with the grid I placed behind this one.
Update: here is the whole "spread"... sorry about the poor light (and I believe the picture was in focus when I took it ?!?) I had set aside the piece with the month and some leaves when I made the page, so this was quick to put together.
