Welcome to my creative online journal

It's February..

...and today I have completed my month's journalling calendar like this:

..for this project:
Link here

On the calendar you fill in the days with a few words of what you've been up to (that takes a bit of work! ; -) ) - and if you wish, show everyone what you've done.  Take a look at the link (above) for other fantastic examples. 

Incidently, if you get the latest issue of  Craft Stamper (UK) Kate has step-by-step instructions on how she creates her wonderful journalling calendar pages.

To make mine I used watercolour pens that I spritzed with water to give that lovely blending effect. 
I must admit I liked the effect so much I didn't want to cover it with the dates - so I compromised and put the date circles randomly over the page (on acetate) so I could still see what I considered the 'best' bits.
I also completed the January page which I shall probably put on here - once I've checked what I've written on it! ;-)

Thanks for looking and for any comments,

Wow, this looks gorgeous - a really 'modern' look! And a great idea not to cover the background...very innovative!

Hi Nicky, I just popped over from Carmen's blog to say hello and pick up a link to you to go on the Pass The Book information page on my blog. I hope you enjoy it!

Sian said...

Ps - I should have said, if you give me a shout when you are ready to pass it on I can add that to the info page and you should get a few takers!

Gorgeous as usual, I do so love the random and beautiful effect of wet watercolours.. it reminds me of walking to school as a child and seeing the 'rainbows' in puddles from oil :)

Did you know all the things you said you liked on my card are Docrafts?! LOL There's some really nice new things out now, you just have to find them.. but i'm in agreeance.. it's all a bit 'ready made' for me and when i'm on my game, I like to create and make as much as I can myself!

Great blending effect and brilliant for a journal.
Thanks for the comment on my Christmas card - unfortunately this is one from last years batch that I hadn't blogged yet. I felt as if I was making them for months LOL. Wish I was that organised :)
