July & August Calendar Pages

July and August Calendar Pages

Can you believe it’s almost September?  Well, it will actually BE September when this post gets published.  This year is flying by and it seems to go faster since I started creating art journal pages in my old calendars each year.   I wonder why that is?  Hmmm.  Maybe because creating the pages makes me more aware of what day it is.  So, here we have July and August calendar pages. I got a little behind but I got caught up just in time for the next month to roll in. lol  August was an odd month.  I started riding my bike 15 miles a day 6 days a week, gave up coffee and working on cutting out sugar all in the same month. I think this month went by so fast because I was in an exhausted, coffee deprived state of mind. lol  Ok…a slight exaggeration but I have to say I was super tired for a few weeks while I adjusted to the changes.  Now, I’m ready for Fall and can’t wait to see the leaves change colors. I always feel extra creative in Fall and Winter for some reason.  Spring makes me want to bring out the entire box of crayons. Oh wait, I do that no matter what time of year it is. lol  And Summer, well, we try to get along. lol Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon.

“Bird” June Calendar Page Using 2016 Calendar For Inspiration

“Bird” June Calendar Page

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.

“Friendly Flowers” May Calendar Page Using 2016 Calendar For Inspiration

“Friendly Flowers” May Calendar Page

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. 🙂
