Altered Art Calendar for 2016

Here is an altered art calendar I have made for my craft room for 2016.  I bought a shaped piece of MDF and painted with white gesso and then a turquoise acrylic paint.

The image I have used is from Crafts and Me and is by Robin Pushay and is called "Kisses for Mum".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers, inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink and highlighted areas with Glossy Accents.

I have finished the calendar off with some decorative fish net, real shells from a Skegness beach, die-cut shells, pearls, die-cut crabs/seahorses and an anchor from a friend, a shell charm and some ribbon to hang the calendar from.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create - Anything goes with the optional twist of paper piecing
