My february pages for Kate Cranes art calendar challenge
I created the background with lots of layers of text pieces, all adhered to the page with Matt Medium. Once dry I scribbled randomly over the page in pinks, reds and apricot with my neocolours, which were then blended with water, I dabbed off some of the colour as I went along to give a random shabby look to the background.
February holds many birthdays for our family and of course Valentines day so I could not resist masses of hearts and one of the most famous love quotes, cribbed shamelessly from The Beatles.
And the pages from January all filled in with my daily journalling, I tried really hard not to write the boring stuff, ie did the ironing, cleaned the cooker ( although maybe one of two did slip in - oops) Those sort of things go without saying and happen on a daily basis, so, I am going to try and be a little more descriptive and include events and descriptions that are a little more revealing as to the way my day/week etc is going - well as much as the little space will allow !
Hopefully this will make the book a little more interesting to read back in years to come, although I have already caught AJ on several occasions reading through it, I love the way the family all take an interest in my art, this one especially as it is a little insight into our family times.
I will be back tomorrow with sneek peeks of my post for IACW, tomorrow is my next day for DT and I have a cute little something to share.
