Art Journal Calendar - June 2018

Hello Everyone!

As it's the first of June, I have my calendar page for this month to share with you. Over at Art Journal Journey, Gill from Gibbyfrogettcraftations has challenged us to be 'Inspired By' someone or something. The background of my calendar was inspired by some tags made by Joyce Shaulis, that I saw in Mixed Up magazine.

I used DecoArt Media Acrylic paints with some PaperArtsy Ellen Vargo stamps. The journalling circles were stamped onto some gelli-printed book pages, cut out, then glued on. I added doodles and dots around them.

Happy June!

  4. Great colors and design on your calendar! I really like it Alison. Happy June. Hugs-Erika

  5. Once again, you put my calendar page to shame, Alison. Your June calendar is SO colorful, so well put together, and so thoroughly complete. You spend SO much time on yours. I used to do that, but now I take the easy way out and make it as quick and painless as possible. It's the only way I've been able to do this since 2012. Thank you for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey, dear Alison.

  6. It's a very happy page Alison. You changed the circles in beautiful flowers. Happy June!

  7. Stepping into JUNE with fabulous shapes and colour, I love your calendar pages. Look forward to seeing what treats you bring to us this month.
    Hugs Tracey xx

  9. Oh dear, I'm a bad blogger at present... glad to have a moment to catch up a bit. I refuse to believe that it's June though!

    Love your calendar page - bright and bold and summery.

  13. very colorful piece! the choice of circles was inspired!

  14. I know I left a comment IG but since I am here I will tell you again - I love the doodled circles and colours on your spread! Hugs, Chrisx

  15. LOVE this, Alison. It's a long time since I did the Calendar challenge - I never ever wrote in them, so decided it was a little pointless in the end, lol. I love the geometric shapes and the bright colours, which work together so beautifully, even though they seem as though they shouldn't! Lovely.
