People that inspire me – part 1

I am often looking at the work from people that inspire me, and I thought i would make a list.

Its in no particular order, I love them all equally 🙂

I an starting with Effy Wild . I have only just discovered her and it seems she has really been though a difficult time, but this is shown through her work. You can visit her Ning site here and even join it if you so wish: 

Then we have Willowing who I believe I have written about before. She is positively Angelic!!! Again she has a Ning site which you can join:

There are some wonderful bloggers out there –

Here is a list of those I find particularly inspiring:

Jenniebellie Studio – this one I have followed since I got into Art Journalling. Jennibellie is great and also has a Ning site –

Art calendar, journal, Kate crane, projects

My latest project – art calendar

I am a subscriber of heART Magazine, which is digital. I love it!

Anyway, within that magazine, was a tutorial on calendar journaling. I thought I would have a go as it combines two of my fave things: journaling and diarying. I was really excited to do this and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The tutorial was by Kate Crane. 
Here’s my version:
First the background:

Then the squares (1.5 inches each, as  cut by my delightful hubby) 

Numbered squares and adhered with Matt mod podge 🙂 

The squares are different here as there were a few the same all together so I made it more evenly coloured. 

I’ll be adding more pictures as I fill this in. I’ve yet to put the month at the top, and attach a picture I stamped and coloured . 
Here’s  the link to a tutorial from her blog:
