january art journal: complete

my january moleskine art journal calendar is complete. i didn't always do the page on the actual day, but i wasn't far off. i worked mostly with stædtler fineliners and watercolors. and here's a closer look at the pages since i last posted:

january 19 - reflects the weaving warps i'm setting up at weaving lessons

january 21 - 22 i was inspired by the colors and shapes of this crocheted blanket on flickr.

january 23 - stitching design for my 9-patch diary cloth.
january 24 - ideas on upcycling a georg jensen blanket husband got as his work christmas present.

january 25 - a monocule in honor of sabin's birthday
january 26 - inspired by this painting on flickr

january 27 - more inspiration from flickr.
january 28 - still more inspiration from flickr, but also from a children's show called "smarteenies" that used to be on BBC Prime.

january 29 - clarity birds on the brain again.
january 30 - the trees have eyes. a doodle pondering kantha embroidery.

january 31 - more doodles pondering kantha embroidery.

february is a short month, but i've already gotten started.

Very impressive! I'd be interesting to know how this is different from your soujournal, do you journal about different things, different media? Maybe that's a topic for the soujournal blog, though!

You made it through January with very beautiful pages. The little birdies of the 27th are so cute. Did you learn anything from making your pages, some moments of clarity?

Have a lovely but probably very snowy day.

I love your journals. They are creative, even when they're simple.

(Sorry, I haven't had breakfast yet.)
