A calendar page in my journal

Whilst I was waiting to be sure of my word for this year I started making the calendar page.  I copied Valerie's idea from her blog post.

I bought Valerie's stencil and as soon as it came had a go with the washi tape - I have a lot of washi tape!

I printed out the calendar for January and auditioned it on the page.   I decided I didn't like the page on the left so painted it.

I used a lime Paper Artsy paint which looked much better.

I tried inking the page with Distress Oxide but didn't make a very good job of it.  I haven't used Distress Inks in a while!  Then I glued it down and made a mess of that also.  However it will do.

I used Valerie's stencil again for the month header and found a suitable quote online. I've written in all the things I know I'm doing already in January.

After a few days I decided to remove the ugly on the right hand page and redo it.  Although to be honest, it isn't much of an improvement!  

Ah well!  It will just have to do.

Thanks for joining me today.
