Don't run off yet!! I know this seems to be a duplicate of a recent post but it's got some new stuff in it. I've been using my advanced skills with scissors and scotch tape to convert the journal to a date book. Really! I did this all by myself. Amazing, isn't it!
I'm going to use this journal as next year's date book.
I taped the January sheet from an extra 2011 calendar on this page and added my own calligraphy to identify the upcoming month.
Cutting the calendar up with scissors was a bit scary but I was extremely careful and didn't poke an eye out. Yay!
I became tangled in the scotch tape momentarily but managed to break loose to go on with my task.
These words are written in Renee Locks' unique calligraphy. It truly is the moments that are impressed on our memories whereas entire days escape us.
I'm looking forward to practicing my own calligraphy as each new month arrives.
I can't find the 2011 version of my favorite date book at my usually dependable bargain store.
Now I'm glad because I got a chance to get creative. Who knows what I'll come up with as the months pass?
I'm in awe of the beauty of a few simple sumi brush strokes put down by artist, Renee Locks.
When I turn the January journal page, I have two full pages with this small flower at the bottom. I'll make my monthly entries there.
Turning the page again will bring me to more words of wisdom by Renee. I'll add a February heading and attach that month's calendar.
I think you'll enjoy Renee Locks' artwork and her collection of powerful words throughout this journal/calendar.
If you'll leave me your birthday in a comment, I'll mention it when I introduce that month. Please do. :)
