I am creating this art journal calendar on an upcycled brochure from work. I glued newspaper strips to the pages to provide an even surface for my calendar page. Next I gessoed the background, masked a couple of squares, and layered on pink and turquoise mists drying between mists. Next I added white mists and white pearl drying before removing my square masks to give a glisteny snowy impression.
My base calendar for January is now ready for daily journaling of life's events!
