After waiting for an entire crazy school year to end and finally being summer break, I can’t believe that July is over and I have to go back to work in a couple of weeks.
I think this month’s calendar for the Kathryn Wheel Calendar challenge is my favorite thus far. Having the time to decorate some of the days, was fun and I like the bright colors.
I washed the journal page with acrylic and then “dirtied” it up with drippy paint, ink, and gesso.
Instead of using store bought paper, I made my own with acrylic wash to use as the date squares. I like how bright they turned out.
I didn’t spend ANY time journaling in this journal at all in July. I did however get a chance to start my Sketchbook Project book. The theme is “Travel With Me”.
It’s been fun to sketch some of the local places I’ve been so far this summer.
Chicago also offered some good sketching opportunities.
Only 7 full pages to go until the sketchbook is finished, and I have until January.
