January is wrapped up and I'm so happy to be participating in this project!  Last year I started doing some art journaling and I'm playing along this year with Kate Crane's big calendar project.  I posted about it here last month.  By the end of January there were over 120 people playing along. Now here's the page ready for February:

Now that I've discovered Kate Crane, I am finding her work everywhere!  She's on Dyan Reaveley's design team and published in just about every single mag I read.  Yesterday I found her featured on the cover of Art Journaling by Somerset Studio, brought that home and had some serious inspiration from her art and article.  So if you have some time and are into all that, go and spend some serious time checking out Kate's site.  It's full of eye candy.


PS – if you're new here be sure to look at the top of the page for a chance to win two great books by Tim Holtz!  Prize drawing will be Monday, February 6th.
