Calendar Journal in the Works

In a previous post I mentioned that I was starting to work on a calendar journal for 2013.  In the last couple of days I've added a bit more to the first couple of pages.  As you can see, for now I'm using circles as my little journalling spaces for each day.  That may change, but for now I'm just having fun playing around (oh, that's awful...sorry).

Here are a few pictures of where I'm at right now.  I think they need more texture or something, but time will tell.

 I've been using a variety of media, including, pencil crayons, Intense pencils, Caran D'Ache Neocolour II watercolour crayons, gesso, a black Pitt pen and a white Sakura Jelly Roll pen.


And, in case you worry about me being lonely while I work, rest assured I have my assistant  very near by at most times...

  1. I love the blues...and I am a fan of the circles...although for January I may experiment with squares...or even triangles...that would be different ;)

    1. Thanks Danielle. I take it you're doing a calendar journal too. That's great. Have fun. I like your triangle idea. I may use them for a later month. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Tara. I can't say the idea was mine though. I've seen others on various blogs which is what gave me the idea to do it in the first place.

  3. Linda, Great idea! But will those circles hold everything that needs to be said for each day? :-)

    1. Thanks Lynda and yes, I'll write very small and just put down the highlight of each day.

  4. I like how you wrote the numbers out in words. Very cool pages. I also LOVE your assistant. My assistants are the same size, shape, and loveliness :)

    1. Thanks. It's a fun project to work on as I look forward to documenting the highlights of the year to come. Glad to hear you've also got some wonderful fur helpers in your studio!
