August done and dusted!

I'm still keeping up with the journal challenge because of  the school holiday and because I else creative  on the go. (must learn to draw cars though!lol)
 For September pages I  used going back to school as my inspiration. I started of with a base coat of gesso, then sponged with acrylic paints using the paints in the picture above.  I had intended using the colours of the school uniform of where I work but as it has been so grey and cold I wanted something bright.( colours are brighter in real life than in the photo)  Stamped with all over with numbers and letters. Hand drawn and coloured paintbrush and paint blobs for further embellishment.
If  you click here  you will be taken to the Kathyrn Wheel  blog and get a look at all the other journals that are being created for this  year long challenge.   We have to journal every day in the form of 12 monthly calender pages, it's been great fun. Never too late to join in!

These are delightful pages. I am in awe of your drawing ability. You make your pages look as good as they read. I never thought of making them 3-D, but you pull that look off quite well.
