12 Tags of 2013 - January

Hello all!  The fabulous Tim Holtz is challenging us again this year with the Twelve Tags of 2013.  And per my m.o., I am getting mine in just under the wire.  I pretty much followed Tim's instructions because I really like his tag.  I didn't have the saying stamp, so I used another one of his.

I can't believe tomorrow will be February!  I've been working on my calendar page for Kate Crane's challenge, and will post it in the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments :)

Happy New Year!

So I've been bitten by the art journaling bug.  Side effects appear to be an endless appetite for all kinds of journals and a craving to color like a kid again.

I'm not sure where I first came across Kate Crane's blog, The Kathryn Wheel, but she started a monthly calendar journal challenge last year (I think it was last year) can read about it here.  And with the new year, I thought this would be a great time to try a new 'media'.  It was a lot of fun to create, and am looking forward to next month! 


I'm entering my pages into the following challenges:
Stampotique's Designer Challenge #81: Journal Cover or Page, Diary or Calendar Page
Simon Says Stamp:  New Something  (I used new paints, markers and stamps).
Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments :)
Happy New Year!
