Art Journaling - January calendar, week one


 I've been having so much fun with my new calendar.  My art journaling instructor (Moira) showed us her new calendar grid and gave everyone a regular calendar with a one word prompt last week.  I had mistakenly thought she wanted us to make a grid calendar and write one word that expressed our day.  So I tried it out but got too wordy for myself.  I guess I had this idea swimming around in my head, because it wasn't anything like Moira told us.  Guess I was daydreaming in class...


Here's a photo with one week finished.  Can't wait to see how the whole month will look on one page!  I've been writing the date and a word or two, then mainly watercoloring the background of the box.

You are doing exactly what I imagined for the prompt! I think I just wasn't clear expressing that. I love how you are doing cant wait to see more!

What fun! I like to look back at old calendars to remember fun/important events. But this would make it even more fun to reminisce :)

That's a really cool idea though! Sometimes our mistakes lead us in great directions:)

Fun calendar! You're off to a great start. I think that it'll look amazing when you have the whole month filled in.

Hi Deb
the first week looks amazing, love the diagonal line to make triangles. I arrived home from holidays yesterday, so will hopefully be able to catch up this weekend. Janet (loriidae)

What fun to make a calendar appear and then make all the notes you want there. Looks like fun! Love the way yours is turing out!

I have seen calendars like this on the web. What a great idea to see what you get done and turn it into art.

I love this way of keeping a calendar! You'll have a pretty patchwork at the end, but with memories.
