Calendar girl..........

For the past couple of years I have been participating in a monthly calendar show and tell featured on Kathryn Wheel's blog HERE.  So, here are my September pages.

Most others, who participate, follow a format that places all 30 or 31 days of information on the two facing pages.  I am a bit of rogue and do art on one page and write on the I do two pages to represent one month.  So, for the first fifteen days I will "Love many, trust few and always row my own canoe"!

Yet more philosophy for inspiration....."the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" AND "imagination is the eye of the soul"!  Zen tangles are ALWAYS fun and inspiring.

 Speaking of zen tangles this was, also, an experiment with colored pencils.  I've not used colored pencils before, I've played around a bit with the watercolor pencils, but this was new.  Thanks to a couple of art buddies I learned I needed a blending pencil....that helps.  I'll have to try this again.

Hope you are enjoying the last of your long weekend and the waning days of summer...tomorrow will be back to school for many of you!  Time flies.

I have always admired your calendar pages, since they are ALWAYS so different and unique. This is no exception.

Have you noticed our host posted something other than the calendar on the 1st? I wonder if she has lost interest in the project.

Have an awesome finish to Labor Day.
