So, it's time to bid farewell to 2011, and here you see all of my journal pages for the year. I have managed to keep on top of this for three years now and yes, I am proud of myself! When life inevitably gets in the way of art and things get a little bit hectic this is often the only art/journaling I will manage to do and for that alone I am thankful for my art calendar. I am so grateful that so many of you have played along with this challenge and if you have managed to keep on top of it for the full 365 then you need to give yourself a very large pat on the back ... well done to you, it is a huge achievement. I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting your blogs over the last year, and the different styles and ideas that you all have is wonderful to see. You can see many of the pages that so many of you have made in the FLICKR group here, and this group will remain open for the forthcoming year.
Don't forget to visit Jill's blog here, as Jill was my original inspiration for starting this challenge. Thanks Jill!
I know that some of you are saying a fond farewell to the challenge, but I also know that there are some newbies who are chomping at the bit to get started, so 2012 is both a fond farewell and a big hello :-)
So, have I managed to get my January page ready on time?? Of course I have! Me late? Never! LOL. Here's a sneak peek, but check back tomorrow for the new link for January.
If you live in the North of England then you may be interested to know that I am teaching a class on art calendar journaling at Art from the Heart in Harrogate where I will be talking through the process of creating a calendar page. See all the details here. Come and join us, it will be fun!
Just one thing I have been pondering on ... next year is a leap year (so don't forget your 29 days in the month for February). Does that mean we have to now call this the 366 challenge?
If you managed to get hold of this copy of Somerset Studio then you will have seen many of my art calendar pages published in an article all about journaling your year.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow and link up with your calendar page. Byee for now ...
