Journal Calendar

Today I finished the Journal Calendar for January that I started yesterday:
Yesterday I used post-its to mask out the date squares and today I cut out squares from past painting experiments and dated them.

Here is a close-up of some of the squares:
and here is a close up of what one of the sides looks like:
I used a clock and key stamp around the sides and also lots of star confetti and doodling.
..and lots of colour and texture on each of the day squares.
This was done on one piece of a very large sprial bound watercolour sketchpad (WHSmith's Sale), that has just 14 pages in it.
I'm hoping to keep up this project all year with one new page done every month.

As I mentioned yesterday, this is part of this creative project:

Oh so coooool! Love the colours you've got into this. I wanted to do a clock theme too and I know I just KNOW I bought a Tim Holtz clock mask at the last Ally PAlly I went to and can I find it? Can I heck - it's not even as if I have that much stash for it to hide in at the mo as not been stash shopping in ages! Aaaargh!

Hope to get mine finished and up tomorrow - to late in the day for taking piccies now.
