August Art Journal Calendar

 Hello All.

I have my August calendar spread to share with you today.

I began by covering my pages with torn collage papers, which were then covered with a layer of teabag papers. I did some stencilling with black acrylic, then stamped a PaperArtsy alphabet and numbers border.

I cut 31 journaling squares from a monoprint I made recently, glued them in place, then outlined them with a white Sharpie pen. I stamped the title with another PaperArtsy alphabet set, added some white pen highlights, and finished with white pen splatters.

I'm linking my spread to Neet's Type theme at Art Journal Journey.

Before I go, here's my July spread with its summer flowers all filled in with not very exciting things, apart from a lovely visit to RHS Wisley with a friend last week, and a trip to the seaside to see my SIL and family at the weekend.

Thanks for visiting,



  1. Your calendars are always beautiful, but August is really wonderful! Thanks so much for linking to Neet's challenge at AJJ, hugs, Valerie

  2. This looks absolutely amazing! I think I have the letter stamp somewhere! Great for Neet's theme at AJJ,Hugs, Chrisx

  3. Both calendar pages are lovely but the new one is so colourful. What a fabulous print you did - and thanks for linking it to my theme at AJJ.
    Great calendar pages.
    Have a nice weekend
    hugs, Neet xx

  4. I love those brightly colored daily squares against the neutral background. I like all the stamping and the white paint splatters. It will be fun to write in those pretty squares everyday.

  5. This is so pretty. I love the design.

  6. You definitely put my calendar to shame. This is out of this world colorful and so well done. Even the background with the teabags and collaged papers was spectacular. You have outdone yourself, Alison. This is so clever. It was good to see you have your July calendar pages filled out nicely, too.

  7. Boy those colors really pop off the background Alison. What a cool calendar. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika
