Calendar challenge 2012

Hello 2012!
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years eve and I wish you all health, happiness and creative abundance for 2012!

Here is my January calendar page for the calendar challenge over at Kates blog. This is a year long challenge to create a calendar page for each month and fill it in with your daily activities! I managed to complete last years and thought I would play along again this year.

For this page I used Dylusions paints and sprays, a crafters workshop template, a piece of Lego (guesse who got Kates art journalling DVD for xmas!) and old book paper which I doodled circles and flowers on. I drew the girly myself and her wings are stamps that I made last year.
For last years pages I used the Pagan celebrations and the seasons as inspiration for each month so this year to try and make it a bit different I am going to use positive affirmations each month.
I am looking forward to seeing everyones pages again.The post below this one shows all 12 of my pages from last year and I am so proud that I managed to keep up!

How cool does it feel to say - these are stamps I made? I hope you are going to add them to your inventory this year Sam? I still get this insane grin when I look at mine! Both of them!

Another gorgeous page. I'm not going to try and take part this year because I am learning to know when to not jump into EVERY challenge. BUT I am going to journal.

Happy New Year!
