The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge


Hello everyone

With only a few days to go until the end of the month, I have finally got around to doing my calendar page for The Craft Barn's calendar challenge
The words for this month are Grey and Owl and if you have been following my calendar progress you will know that I have been determined to use my Gelatos each month, so having grey as the colour posed me a bit of a conundrum. 
After much mixing and testing, I couldn't come up with a suitable colour that would also show up on my black paper so I gave in and bought the metallic gelato set, which includes silver. I hope that's not considered cheating; I honestly think it looks like grey on the black paper. 

I added a smudge of light colour in the sky for a moon and wispy clouds.

I am looking forward to finding out what our December words are; but can hardly believe we have reached the end of the year so quickly!! 

Many thanks for visiting, and until next time

Take Care
Be Happy

  1. What a great excuse for getting some new goodies. Your little owl page looks very atmospheric. Looking forward to seeing your page for December.

  2. Silver is shiny grey! Nice page Mo! Hugs, Valerie

  3. I agree with Valerie. Silver is truly shiny grey. I adore your owl. The layout is perfect with the moon and stars shining behind the owl sitting perfectly on that branch. It's a gorgeous piece of great art! I also like the randomness of the caps and lower case letters, too.

  4. I think your scene is beautiful and serene!

  5. Isn't it great to find a reason to buy something new! Love your owl - his eyes follow you!

  6. Silver is just metallic grey so it looks fine to me - great owl!

  7. Well you bought something and used it straight away so at least it's not languishing unused in a drawer. Your owl looks great.

  8. It looks perfectly grey to me too Mo, well done on thinking of using the silver, it looks amazing and I just love the owl - a fantastic calendar page! Hugs, Anne xx

  9. I won't complain... I will call it metallic grey! Love your owl, he's got a funny look about him.

  10. Any excuse to get some new stuff is good. i love the whimsical clouds. Vicky

  11. Looks amazing, well done on keeping to the Gelatos! Thank you for entering The Craft Barn Calendar Challenge.

  12. A fabulous November sky and the lovely owl sits perfectly against it.

    I love your new blog heading.

  13. Fab page, I love your owl! Sorry I'm so late! xx

  14. Your grey owl is terrific, he looks right at home in the grey dusk.
    What a good excuse to buy metallic gelatos.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
