June Calendar

June Calendar Journal
(Click on any pic to see the details.)
As I worked on my June spread, I realized that we're half-way through 2011. Time seems to have grown wings this year!

Because my family celebrates quite a few birthdays and anniversaries in June, party hats are featured prominently, and my color choices seem to add to the celebratory feel of the month ahead.

This spread began with gessoed pages; and after allowing the background to dry completely, I added Inktense Watercolor Pencils and splattered some white fluid acrylic paint. The border was stamped with red Distress Ink swirls, and I used a cap from a bottle as a stamp to create the green circles. (It's a great way to recycle!)

May your month be bright and beautiful!

Credits: Thanks to Rian @Freubel for the rabbit, to Deborah @Land of Nod Studio-Etsy for the little dog and the boy wearing the party hat, to TumbleFishStudio @DeviantScrap for the rabbit's hat and little heart, to Moonlight Journey for the yellow roses, to The Graphics Fairy for the label and to Dover Publications for the butterflies.

Two things. No. Three things. Love this. Love, love, love it. And I love that bunny person! The 2nd thing is how did I not know about Freubel?? Wow. Wonderful stuff. Just terrific. Love that goofy little dog, too! Cheers, Kathy

Terri, your calendar is exquisite and it has been so enjoyable to savour every last detail - and there are so many details to see. If there is ever a grandchild on the horizon for you, how fortunate she or he will be to have original Pringle Hill designs lining the walls. Fabulous artwork.

Your color choices are really great for June, now that the weather is heating up. Enjoy celebrating your birthdays and such this month, and don't let those party hats go to waste. I'd even take one (grin).

I don't think you have shown a video of Inktense pencils yet on Blue Finger Productions. Do you think you could do that sometime? I've seen results of it from a few artists works and really like the effect-especially the one you got on your calendar.

Happy, happy June to you!!

Time has grown wings this year, going faster than ever. I love your bright and colour June, the characters are fantastic. Roll on July but just not yet!!

ally said...

Wow your pages are awesome

kimmie said...

You add so much to the clip art and digital images you use what with painting and inking and doodling. You are very conscientious to give credit where credit is due with those products but I think you should add: "made more special by ME!" after all of the credits :)

(I know you would never do that though)

P.s. Love love love the rabit with a tea pot!
