LOOK AT THIS and an update

Just found a great blog by Third Age Musings (aka Jill) click HERE to go to the relevant blog page - where she filled a sketchbook as a Calendar/Diary for the year - she has thrown down the gauntlet to others to do the same for 2011 - so I am going to have a go. OK I have to back track a few days for January but hey this could be fun. I already have a sketchbook which I painted years ago with no idea of what to do with it - so lets give this a try - why not join in?
I will post my January spread once I have got going.
As if by magic...... No I just got started straight away as I already had the sketchbook painted.Can you see the deliberate mistake??? It has really annoyed me as I have used a set of block stamps to do the text which I have never used before and would you believe it - the 3 and 4 were set incorrectly on their blocks so when I held the stamp the correct way up the 3 and 4 came out the wrong way round. I did manage to adjust it further down!! Not such a promising start then!! Now off to start the writing, doodling and embelishing. Or maybe I should get back to my cord making - tough choice!

Yay! Welcome to the calendar challenge. I love your January pages. And remember - there's no such thing as a mistake - it's a variation :-)

How happy I am to have a link to your work - i am stunned by your costumes. Are they to be worn or are they an art piece in their own right? Which they are, of course either way. Whatever, they are beautiful. Jill
