my Stampotique February calendar pages

I am so pleased with myself...I've got beyond January with this year's calendar pages!  This is a first :)

I've missed a couple of days, but keeping my 'journal' by my bed means I usually remember to write something.


I'm particularly happy with the little pages I added which gave me space to list the books I read in January.  I still need to add a couple but it's pretty much up to date.


The stamped lines are from a homemade stamp - I carved it from a big eraser purchased in Asda/Walmart.


And look!


I've completed almost a week in February too :)


To be honest, having a weekly commitment to the Stampotique Designers' Blog helped motivate me to get my February pages made.


I added some sprayed paper to my journal.  This was torn at one end so I stamped Journey Collage with Archival Monarch Orange over the white space.


I decided to colour Peggy's face and hands, rather than paper-piece them.  Whilst colouring I discovered that she had a heart on her jumper ... I'd never noticed that before!


I was a bit worried that the white hearts stood out too much, but once they have writing on they 'tone down' a touch ...


... and I think I like it :)

Stamps used:

what a great idea, I really need to adapt writing a little something each day to help me out with my project life. Great pages!
