This is the June Calendar Art Journal Page that almost wasn’t. lol Sometimes things just don’t go very smoothly when you are creating and this was one of those times. But, its times like this that make me love the pieces that come out the way you want them to even more. And it is times like this help me appreciate the process and learn to look past a “pretty face” and see that the fun is in the journey. Without the journey of ups and down, good and bad, pretty art and not so pretty art we might miss something important in our learning process. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss a single step in my art journey. Thank you for joining me on my journey and I hope you are on one of your own.
Each month I create a journal page in my calendar for the previous year using the art in the calendar as inspiration for my page. May’s calendar page is called “Friendly Flowers”. I used a piece of paper bag from my “Junk Your Stuff” project that had the words “friendly flowers” on it because I thought it was so cute. I really enjoy working in my calendar each month and as the year goes by I mark in the new current calendar so that when the year is over I can start creating in it for the following year. Here are photos of the May calendar page and a link to the video. I hope you feel inspired to do something creative. 🙂
