You're so Vein

A most happy accident / experiment today led to the cover for the calendar. It was also the first day of printing, mostly samples to adjust ink colors and alignments, but it's incredibly exciting to see everything coming together.

Although I intend to have bound calendars on sale at our Etsy shop in two weeks (fingers crossed), I was rushing to get finished photographs taken to submit to Decor8 for Holly's annual calendar roundup.

It was so hard to decide which months to feature (clockwise from top left: august, cover, january, december, october, may), but in the end I'm really pleased with this spread.

Coming soon to an Etsy near you.

Holy moly!
I am impressed, to say the least! Did you marble the Pescia? Or marble a lighter paper and then adhere it?
Looks like a massive undertaking. Well done you.

Thanks, Elisabeth! I marbled the Pescia directly. It was an insane amount of work, and I don't think I'll be doing it on this scale again... but it was tremendously satisfying nevertheless.
