Art Calendar Journal - April

No foolin'...my
Art Calendar Journal for
APRIL 2013
is ready for marking what's fun in each day. 
 


I'm glad I made the decision to switch from traditional monthly themes to FUN monthly themes. (This isn't really a theme is it?  But it was fun!)  This was even more fun than the first 3 months. 

 
I love this little bad girl.  I see her as me...not at her age...I was 23 before I became her.
 


And these are the wannabe bad girls...
 

I'm so excited to fill in these blocks.  I do hope some worthy fun happens! 
 
March started as a bit of a struggle to squeeze fun into a few of the days.  Those are the days I practiced making inchies.  And some days had a bit too much fun packed in.
 

 
May there be many FUN days in April!

This looks like it's going to be a fun month with the "attitude" and "bad girls." Looking forward to fun days in April. I loved looking at March and seeing all the fun things you did. Did you show your inchies?

"obscene gesture girl drawing"? WHAT have you been up to? LOL! And, Lodi? You're near Lodi? I'm in Sac. Love your monthly journals and really wish I had the arty-ness to do something like this. I'll continue to live vicariously through you.

Beautiful pages :-)
I don't usually do the rounds but seeing only a few have posted on Kate's blog so far I thought I'd look at what's there.

Goodness. You put my puny calendar to shame. Ty8s is incredible. I for one, am thrilled to see something besides traditional April fare. Lovely. Enjoyed those inchies, too.

Hi Annie, I stopped by just to see this calendar page and ended up scrolling through almost your entire blog! Wow, fantastic work, I'm following you now. Love your stuff! :-)

Laura said...

Annie- I love this so much. Saw it on facebook too! I am doing the same thing- no traditional themes for me either. Sometime I do pick colors that represent the month (to me at least teehee). I adore your girls and the clever ephemera you used.
