Calendar - September

I finally finished September's page and filled in all the dates that I had saved on a post it note.  The background was watercolor and pigment inks.  The daily squares were painted with watercolor.  The borders are thin strips of text pages in Italian and Latin.  Overall I'm sort of happy with it.  I wanted the background to be red, but my watercolors were not cooperating this time.

Every Inchie Monday - Sparkle

The theme for Every Inchie Monday this week was sparkle. Ooo, gimme gimme...I can do sparkle with the best of them!  I started with a splattered watercolor background and added Pearl Ex powders, inexpensive larger rhinestones, tiny little 2.5mm Preciosa flat back rhinestones in peridot and then a bit of glitter puffy paint.  The border was done with silver metallic pen.  Yum!  Although I'm not a sparkly person in real life, I do have a lot of sparkly bits in my studio.

Every Inchie Monday - Kiss

The theme for Every Inchie Monday this week was "kiss".  Hmm...what to do...what to do.  I wanted to make an inchie I could leave for Allen.  I think he'll like this one.

The background is different shades of pink acrylic paint that I spritzed with water so they blended together.  "Smooch" was written with a Glaze pen and I put a layer of gold glitter puffy paint on top of the whole thing. 

What do you think?

Calendar Pages July and August

When summer hits I tend to live on my deck.  It's hard for me to go down into my art room, even with it's windows...I really just want to be outside.  I did manage to make my July page and fill it in.  I admit that I was keeping most "events" for July on post it notes and then occasionally making it downstairs to fill in the days.  July's page was made with splashes of watercolor and the large flower stamps are actually a packing peanut.

Allen and I quit smoking on July 30th.  We're really, really good smokers so I tried to keep my hands busy the first few days.  August's page was washes of watercolor and then one of our first nights not smoking I just doodled and doodled swirls on the border.  It took about an hour or so and really kept my hands busy.

September is coming soon...right now I'm again keeping a note on each day on post it notes.
