Hello all,

Im Kelly and Im new here and want to join in for 2011, I have a couple of questions though.

How do you know how to set the days/numbers out?

Also what Books do you use to make them in?

Thanks

Hi Kelly.

Welcome to the challenge :-)

We all work differently but I work in a large moleskine sketchbook, and each month I use a double page spread. I generally use acrylic paints to colour the pages, as well as rubber stamps and some images for interest. I cut my squares from scraps of patterned scrapbook papers and they measure 1 1/2" square. Hope that helps.

Hi Kelly, welcome.
I work in an A4 'portrait' spiral bound sketchbook ,with 4cm squares. I can fit 4 columns on one page and 3 on the opposite one and vary this according to my mood. Don't forget to check which day of the week the month starts on. this had had me ripping off a few suck down squares more than once!

Hello everyone! My name is Holly and I am another newbie here. I first heard about the challenge when Terri at Pringle Hill Studio blogged about her January 2011 calendar. Earlier today I was browsing the art journal group and came across someone else's calendar for the challenge. That was it - I'm in! I immediately had a vision for my January 2011 spread and so I went to work on it. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's contributions!
