August - I'm late

Yes, yes I know, don't nag I know I am late showing my August pages of my 365 Calendar. But good things come to those that wait - not that I am saying my August pages are particularly any better than anyone elses but I do like the way this months' pages have turned out. If you are not sure what is going on with this challenge then pop over to Kate's blog and all will be made clear.

As you can see the designs of the frocks have come from the talent folks at Plymouth College of Art and I picked up this leaflet at the Graduate Fashion Show at Earls Court earlier this year when I went with my daughter to report on the show for her Uni magazine. I loved all the clothes on this leaflet and really liked the sketchiness of the drawings. I didn't want to distract too much from the designs so chose to use a monochrome look in tans and pinks. I used my Distress Inks and Adirondack Ink Pads to this effect. The month title is cut from various fonts from my trusty old Elle Magazine - still going strong! All in all I think the colour scheme is quite subtle for me. What do you think?

I love the outfits and the colourway works really well. Great idea. Elle is 25 years old this month and I bought the first issue scary. Looking forward to next month.
