Jan and Feb 2011 pages

Well it's Feb already - I can't believe it, but it must be true as I've filled up January's pages. There are a lot more people taking part in the 365 Journal via ~{TheKathrynWheel}~  with Kate, who is also one of the new designer's for ~{Stampotique}~ whoo Kate!

So here is January's pages. It's been a weird month with huge, enormous lows and lots of arty inspiration via many new journal blogs.


I'm really hoping that Feb will be a lot more of an even keel - I don't think I can take any more! I decided to use soft colours this month to encourage that, but I am sure that ~{grrrumpy}~ dog will make an appearance! I love that stamp. I used watercolour crayons and then painted gesso over it. This really blends the colours together.

Sorry to hear you've had a rough month :-( What is the cupbaord of doom....? (and should the DWP move their head office there?!) Your pages look fab though and I find comfort in knowing it's not just me who takes HOURS to make a simple card! Here's hoping Feb will be a soft and gentle as your page.

It's good to see you can make something lovely out of a rotten month - the pages are fab even if the journey through the days has been less than fab. The Feb pages look great too, let's hope they get filled with a bit more to smile about.

Sorry to hear you've been having a tough time and like you I hope Feb is much better for you.
Love the colours for both months. Wish I'd themed my Feb ones for Valentine's day.
