2010 365 Art Journal Calendar

I'm late, I'm sorry... I do have a fair few excuses :( like no computer or camera, a mountain of washing care of Beijing International Uni to name but a few.....

Hope you like my pages.... lots of swooshing of Distress Inks. I wanted to keep a common theme throughout the year & change colours along with the changing seasons. I went for a very oriental theme this month.... for some reason no matter how many photos I take they keep uploading slightly blurred even tho they are fine in PS8? it's driving me mad!! if you click on photo & click again it's not quite as blurred!

Here are my completed pages for July......

......a very busy month!


I've made a start on my August pages & will be working on my squares today! I know I'm slacking but hey I'm hanging in there - just!!) some how I think my pages look quite rainy just like looking out of the window today. :(


If you would like to see more Art Journal pages then pop over to Kate's you won't be disappointed. I know there is a flickr group but things like that are wayyyyyy beyond me!!!

I hope everyone has a lovely August. Thanks for calling. Gez.xx
