Doodle Calendar

I am trying something new this year.
Last year I saw the lovely calendar pages that Sharon over at Wildflowerhouse by Sharon created each month.  I will put a link to each page below so you can check out her lovely work.

Sharon found the idea here at the Kathryn Wheel blog.
At the start of each month they link up the completed page from the previous month and new page ready for the new month.

So here is my first attempt.  I have bought a large watercolour art pad as I wanted to play with my Aquamarkers and watercolour pencils.   The background I randomly painted with blue acrylic paint and then sprayed, again, randomly with my gold smooch.  Couldn't think of what to draw around the edge so went to the trust flowers.  Added the January title.

So I hope to be back at the end of the month with a little picture for each day.
Oh by the way.... please do not expect any great artwork.  All just a quick doodle. :-)

  9. I think it's got a real natural feel to it Merry, sometimes it too easy to make our work neat and symmetrical.

    And the whole concept of the calendar is great.
