September and October pages in my 365 days calendar

I noticed that Kate had her calendar post ready, so I quickly went to photograph my pages. This is how my September pages began. I think these were the perfect colors for this month's pages.


Here are the two pages finished. You can see I added the leaves for the month, because I really prefer to decorate my pages at the end of the month, since I then have a better idea how the month progressed.


Here is the left side (click to read the daily entries). The cats are left over from my Halloween swap and I used them on days


when I was working around the house and not in the studio, where Bleubeard is not allowed. This is the right side, and I love these leaves I cut from a magazine.


And here we are waiting for October with its pumpkins and a Xylene transfer of a haunted house. I'm not crazy about the pink with the orange pumpkins, but that was the color most prevalent on the page. I may try to cover it over with more paint toward the end of the month.

Please go to The Kathryn Wheel for more calendar pages.

I love this idea so much--later on you can go back and see how your days were filled--not to mention--great art too.

calendar pages are something i want to try out and it seems like such a good idea to finish them after the month is done but i doubt if i'll be able to finish anything on time. i wonder. i've been thinking of making a calendar for next year but now i'm wondering if i can manage it your way.

I think these calendars are really cool...evidence of your daily life...to remember the simple things and pleasures of each day. I like those leaves too!
