Art Journal Calendar-Kathryn Wheel

So ever since I saw these FUN art journal calendars I have wanted to make one...and guess what?? I finally did!!! And even though our Word Challenge starts today I wanted to do one quick post about Kathryn and her calendars and show you MINE!!!

Kathryn is this amazing mixed media artist that has been published numerous times in Stampington and other magazines...her work is fabulous!! You can go here to check out her calendar as well as others.

Okay...here is mine for September...my first calendar....I LOVE it!!



I just put this right in my regular art journal but it would be cool to have a Book of Days type one where all your calendars went in that.



I chose the oranges and yellows and green...3 colors we see often in Northwest Missouri as we go into fall by late September.



I used a square punch for each day. SOOO easy!

Here is a close-up of my days.


I didn't get too fancy this time around. Mostly I just wanted to get in the hang of things....I plan on creating one every month so will have plenty of time to try lots of ideas.

So many things I enjoyed about this calendar project, girls. You should try to make one, too!! Remember to stop by Kathryn's clog and check out others beautiful work. Thanks for looking.

Oh and remember....the Words of Me Art Journal Challenge will be posted later today!!! I hope you'll join us!!:)
