Wow! That was fast. I feel like I just posted about the end of January. Here it is, the end of February, but surprisingly enough, I completed another calendar. It was quite a feat as I spent most of February sick. In fact, this weekend I came down with a gnarly throat infection that kicked my butt. I even took today off from school…and I HATE doing that.
This month, I used pieces of a magazine to make the calendar. I found this amazing picture in one of my travel magazines of Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. It’s tiling is so beautiful and I wanted to incorporate it into my art journal (I also added it to the list of places I want to visit), but I couldn’t come up with a way to do so. I decided to use strips of the picture to create the rows and columns of the calendar.
A couple weeks ago, I worked on the next page using spray paint. Some of it seeped through so my previously white background became blotches of color. It’s not what I intended, but it is what it is.
I only got to journal a few other pages during this busy and sick month. I will begin March’s calendar tomorrow and will hopefully have time to continue it for another month.
