I always do monthly summary pages in my albums as an overview and to include random odds and ends, if I have any, that won't fit on other LO's. For my 2013 pages, I'm using Graphic 45 Place in Time. (You can see the themes I used/am using for 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009 in my gallery in the Month LO's album.) I will eventually do some kind of a title page for the year with some leftovers from all 12 months.
This is my example for my June Four Categories Challenge - Category Three ~ Technique: Tearing. I tore the top edge of the long striped strip of pp and also tore a piece out of the edge of the bg pp as a well as another tear up into the bg pp, both of which I backed with the butterfly print pp. The twist is to use at least two inks on the LO - I used three to create the burned look to the torn edges.
I added Heather & Sweet Basil ultrafine glitters to selected areas of the patterns. I also added gems to the flourishes. The flower trim was a gift from my Secret Sister, Eileen (ncyankee). Three of the stamps are raised on foam tape for dimension. I used three tags - one attached with a brad under the stamps, and two tucked into the pocket I made from the calendar and post card pieces. For those top two, I added eyelets and some scrap ribbon. Each tag has some journaling about the month.
