Did you think I hadn't managed to complete my calendar page for June? Tsk tsk, how could you think such a thing? Of course I did a page ... just running a little late that's all :-)
Love these random letters, or 'alphabitties':
And loving these 'Bold Birds' by Maryse Carrier. I think they look cute nestling amongst a flourish!
I created some grungy background effects by flicking water on my page (you have to be feeling quite brave to do this!)
And here's the page in progress ... it looks soooo messy! When I am teaching art journaling I always say that every page has a cr*p stage but you have to work through it! If my pages weren't all firmly attached inside my Moleskine I think quite a lot of them would hit the bin before I had chance to finish them! So here's the cr*p stage:
Here's the page with a few things balanced on top as I decide what to add next ....
I am still in the process of exchanging rooms with my son. He's going to get a bigger bedroom and I'm going to get a smaller craft room ..... hmmmm. However I am determined that it will be small but beautiful, and it will be mine all mine haha! In the meantime the plasterers have been so my art supplies are in our bedroom, my daughter's bedroom, the bathroom, the landing, the dining room and anywhere else you can think of! Its a little frustrating when I am trying to find something, but on the other hand I have discovered things I haven't seen for years! There may be a big e-bay clear out coming up soon .....
If you haven't added your June calendar pages yet, don't forget you can add them here. I think I have now managed to get round and visit all the calendar challengers but let me know if I missed you! Wonderful work as always everyone. I'm impressed that you are all keeping up - we're nearly half way through already!
Thanks for all your advice re: leaving comments on blogger; I have discovered that Safari works well, whereas Internet Explorer doesn't. I know that some of you are still struggling with blogger issues so maybe this will work for you too.
Byee for now.
