Art Journal Calendar
Have you ever made an art journal calendar? This post was initially shared in December 2012. These pages are all part of Kate Crane's calendar project. I enjoyed finding different ways and shapes to create the tiny calendar pages for each month.

As you know, I'm a huge Sizzix fan and I use a lot of their dies (with the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine) in my work. These aren't traditional December colors, but Kate has no rules (which suits me fine!) and I went wherever my spirit took me each month.
I've made this page with a combo of Dylusions Ink Sprays, stencils, inks, punches, the Sizzix Chip Block alphabet die, and Basic Grey papers.
Here's how the rest of my year turned out:
I used the Sizzix Ticket Strip to cut tickets for my daily entries this month.
An old fashioned square punch helped in July, August and September.
Loads of stamping in June.
Tim Holtz's Sizzix Tattered Florals die along with some paper punches decorated the May page.
The discontinued Sizzix Square Frames Combo die gave me space for the days of the month in April.
Circle punches for March along with chipboard letters.
Square punches and stamping.
Lots of stamping, more squares, and the Rat-a-Tat-Tat die set gave me the bold dies for the year.
It's a pleasure looking back at the completed pages. I encourage you to join next year… there's a ton of inspiration over on Kate's blog.
