As many of you know by now, Kate Crane of the Kathryn Wheel, hosts a monthly calendar journal challenge. I have been doing this for exactly a year now as I started in July 2010. It is great fun and I highly recommend it. You can find out more on Kate's blog here Sorry the picture is so bright, really in reality the colour is much nicer. Please click anywhere on the picture to see the detail. Background and squares were all created with acrylic paints and various stamps, mainly Tim Holtz.
