My Very First Calendar!

Kate, from The Kathryn Wheel, has been sponsoring a monthly Art Journal Calendar Challenge all year and after months of being blown away by everyone's submissions I finally decided to join the fun.  I know it's a little late in the year but better late than never, right?

Below is my very first calendar created using collage images from Tumble Fish Studio.  Even though the kids will be going back to school in a couple of weeks, August still means "summer vacation" to me and Marsha's vintage beach images are absolutely perfect.

If you are unfamiliar with Art Journal Calendars take a look at The Kathryn Wheel to see Kate's completed July calendar as well as her August calendar.  While you're there check out the rest of her incredible art.  She's one of my favorite artists and a huge inspiration to me.

This project was a lot of fun and I can't wait to make my next one!


  1. Beautiful! So vibrant and colourful! I'm so glad you decided to join the calendar challenge. I used Marsha's beach images too - perfect for August :-) I can't wait to see your calendar page all filled in.
    And thank you for your very kind words :-)

  2. This is fabulous, love the colour and the images you've used
