Calendar Journal – February

Yay!  It’s Friday and my play day!!


Finally finished Kate’s Calendar challenge for Feb.  I had it ready last weekend but then tried a full page stamp on it and it was way too patchy, so I decided to redo it today. I added lots of gesso, thicker in some places for some texture, then resprayed it with more Hot Pink ink.  It’s turned out okay – looks much better without the circles, lol – but my circles are well tatty.  It’s a good job I like a bit of grunge cos they’re full of black and hot pink ink from the wet inks on the page.

Edited:  People seem to think my pages are purple – scanners don’t seem to pick up the shades as well as cameras, so I took photos – admittedly in the sun, so a bit washed out – but they’re closer to the real colours, which are hot pink, with some purple.  I’m in a drippy, drabby mood, so there are lots of dribs and drabs and splatters of ink on these.  I’ll have to draw in the branches missed because of the textured gesso 🙂

And to prove I used and completed my January pages, here are the scans.

2012 Calendar

I was determined to join in with Kate’s brilliant calendar challenge this year because I so enjoyed looking at people’s work last year but of course it’s been busy, busy, busy since the beginning of January, so I’ve only just managed to do my pages. 


They’re very simple and not brilliantly stamped but I hope to add to them as the month goes on – or that’s the plan, anyway. Just hope I can keep it up for the whole year, or at least do some of them!

PS, there isn’t quite as much blank space now cos I started journalling and doodling on it … ooops!  But that’s what journalling is about, isn’t it????
