Well, finally a week behind, I can show you my completed February Doodle Calendar page. I had a lot of fun this month with the larger squares to draw in (well doodle). Time got away with me about a half way through February and I found I had to sit and try and remember something I had done a week ago. That is hard work.
Here is my March page ready to go. Yes, I already have seven days to doodle in. I am so enjoying creating these pages and using stamps I just haven't used. The whole idea of this calendar came from The Kathryn Wheel Blog. This is owned by Kate who is very inspirational and she has added a link up gadget so people can show off their versions of calendar. The entries are very inspiring and have helped me each month change my pages. Only the third month and I can see a huge improvement from January here. Each month I visit a lot of the entries to get ideas from their pages. So this month as I am using watercolour paper with a paintbrush I brushed water over the entire page. Then I watered down some blue and yellow acrylic paints and painted stripes of these across the page. It was fun watching them merge. When I had finished I actually noticed that some water seemed to have pooled on the page so I took it to the sink and held it up so the water would run off. Best bit....the colours all merged beautifully. I am not sure of the brand of this stamp set as it was given to me by my friend Mandy a little while ago. First time I have used most of these stamps. The lettering for the word 'March' is a $2.00 set from Crazy Clarkes. For the days of this month I thought I would try out the Bleed Proof Paper from Blue Edge Crafts. So I cut out the rectangles and attached with double sided tape. My plan is to doodle around the edge of all these days. Although I hope to find a stronger coloured fine black pen that is water resistant any suggestions appreciated.
Thats it for me. If you have the time please check out everyones calendars as there are so many beautiful pages.
