Calendar Girl #1


 
To keep my upcycling junk and reuse theme going again this year I decided to create a journal out of my 2014 calendar. This art journal is going to focus on girls and I am going to try to add more of the figure rather than just the face. My page started with a colour block pattern and then I began to paint/add detail on top.
 
 
I am going to share my painting over at Paint Party Friday and Mix it up Monthly.

  5. This is gorgeous, Clare! The text you put on the piece is wonderful. I wish I could think up things like that. The saying goes great with the beautiful lady.

  18. She is fab. Great challenge for 2015- both to draw more of the girl than just focus on the face and use a calendar.
