Altered Wooden calender

Hi Everyone, Long time no blog!! I have been extremely busy the last few months what with teaching three classes a week and all the prep that goes along with that the time just seems to slip by! Well last week I had a few days off and decided to do a little project just for fun. I have had this calender for ages just tucked away in a draw so decided to alter it.
Firstly I painted it with brown acrylic paint.

Then once the paint had dried I applied some Gold Leaf Rub and Buff.

Then using Modge podge I covered with designer paper by K&Co from Brenda Waltons Madeline Collection. I really love these papers they are so pretty

Here is a closer pic!

Then I distressed the number and month blocks with Walnut stain Distress ink and some more rub and buff.

Please excuse the yucky craft mat lol!!

And here is the finished item. I am really pleased with the way this has turned out. I hope you like it too. Please feel free to leave a comment as I always enjoy readding what you guys think.
Hope everyone is well
