2021 Floral Calendar May/June

Hi Angels!

I am having so much fun painting my calendar pages and the Angels are too.

Part of my sabbatical was studio play days with a couple of classes here & there. The calendar class was Dec. 30th but scheduling conflicts occurred so make-up time become relaxed play days with a little extra guidance here & there. It’s nice to sit down & create with the Angels.

Today is the half-way point in the year, May & June.

This set was the most challenging to photograph so far. Both stamps have heavy/multiple lines meaning the silver/gold embossing reflects a lot. So this shot muted the shine better allowing the colors to show a bit more.

May is Simon Says Stamp Daisy Bouquet set. The flowers are painted in a white shimmer H2O first then I added pink tips. May is my birthday month & daisies are my favorite flower. I can’t actually have daisies around because my hubby is very allergic so pretty stamped ones are the next best thing.

June features Fun Stampers Journey Bloom Burst. Hydrangeas are so beautiful.

When taking photographs remember that natural light or being outdoors can sometime be your friend with difficult pictures. I took today’s picture near a window with some sunlight coming in but not enough to make the metallic embossing glare in the camera. I am by no means a photo expert and use what works from what I have learned. Sometimes the simplest tips are easier to remember than more technical ones.

Thanks for stopping by.

Comments are a blessing.
