Art Journal Calendar – May 2016

Happy May Everyone!

Here’s my Art Journal Calendar page for this month, all ready to be filled in with May’s activities.

May 16 AJ Cal e

A bit of a crazy daisy page this month, I went mad finger-painting, stamping with paint, and stencilling flowers to journal in. I used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint and a PaperArtsy stencil.

It’s our 25th wedding anniversary this month, as well as both our birthdays, so we’re off on our travels again, this time to Scotland, which is where we spent our honeymoon many years ago. I’ll still have a few scheduled posts to share this month, and maybe the odd project, as I’m taking some art supplies with me😉

Happy May Day!
