Keeping up.

I have managed to complete my March April  pages for the Calendar Journal Challenge. To view other journals taking part in this challenge, click on the link here.

My May pages are complete and ready for me to start journalling on. To make them, I used  Eco Friendly Ocean and Kaiser Turquoise with white on a gessoed background.  
 Reeves Lime Yellow was used to stencil through sequin waste.  Spirals were stamped with Stampin' Up Teal.  Letters were painted with Kaiser Turquoise and double embossed with transparent powder.
Flowers stamped onto a very old Needlework magazine (1950's), coloured with Cosmic Shimmer Aqua paint.

What is more difficult creating the pages, or filling in the journal? Another lovely page for May!

I was a bit concerned when you said you had managed to finish march, as I thought maybe you had fallen into a deep Princess sleep and lost a whole month, but no its a typo LMAO. Love both your pages. siobhan
