Ready for February

I have been keeping up with my Art Every Day journal and will show you all the January pages later in the week.

In my journal I am also doing the monthly Calendar challenge set up by Kate Crane.  This usually involves painting a background and cutting up squares, or in February's case probably hearts, and sticking them on as mini journaling blocks.

However I was inspired by this photo that I found on Pinterest and which can also be found on Flickr.

So here is my version ready for February:

    1. Hi Kimberly. I tried to email you but it bounced back.

      I drew pencil lines with a ruler and then used Neocolor watercolour crayons to draw the ‘ribbons’ and then used a paintbrush and water to smooth it out a bit

      Thanks for your comment
