June's and July's monthly calendars

Last month I had June ready before Kate at The Kathryn Wheel posted the link. This month she surprised me by having the link ready on the last day of June. She also pointed out we are officially half way through this year. Not sure I'm getting any better at these pages, but at least I added the little hand cut birds this month as my meager contribution to the page decorations.


Here is the left side of June completed and scanned. Again, sorry I'm not sure how to stitch these two together into a single page. Click to enlarge.


The right side of the page where I might be able to add a bit more embellishments. Click to enlarge.


I'm also ready for July. I had these pages finished two days ago, which surprised me. Note the red and blue motif to signify our US Independence Day (July 4).

Ooh fab colourful pages. I just LOVE your birdies :-) And yes, I surprised myself by being ready on time this month ;-) Well done for sticking with the challenge, hard to believe we are half way through the year already.

see you there! said...

Once again, I admire you for taking on so many challenges and seeing them through. Your bird illustrations add a lot to the page.

I love these calendar spreads you've been doing- SO cool! I've been wanting to make a garden journal sort of book with a spread similar to this outside of each month and a place notes and plant tags....you always inspire me so much!
