August 2014 Countdown Calendar

I created my August calendar page based on the book, Zenspiration
Letter & Patterning by Joanne Fink. This is one of my favorite books
and I just couldn’t resist using the flower petals to countdown the days
in August.

July 2014 Countdown Calendar

A doodle a day made up the July calendar page. I divided the page into
31 sections and then water colored them. Each day I doodled one of
the sections.

My May calendar page was all about dangling things. Each day I created a different dangle.

April 2014 Countdown Calendar

April’s calendar page was all about houses. I drew a different kind of
structure for each day and water colored each one.

March 2014 Countdown Calendar

In March I chose one specific word for each day. I tried to be a representation
of that word the entire day. The calendar background was created with
watercolor spray mists.

February 2014 Countdown Calendar

For the month of February, I just created a tiny work of art every day based
on a quote that I heard that day or something that I enjoy!

Countdown Calendar

I have an important event coming up in February of 2015. That date will be the first date that I will be eligible to retire. My best friend and I were discussing the event one day in January of 2014 and I was telling her that it seemed like forever until February of 2015. She suggested that I create a calendar to countdown the days until the event. This sounded like a great idea and in February of 2014, I started my countdown calendar. Each month my calendar has been a different theme and I haven’t planned the month in advance. Somehow the idea for the next month just pops in my head and I go with it.

I am creating my calendar in a Strathmore 11×15 inch watercolor paper pad. I’ve found that I really enjoy creating these little works of art daily and it assures that I do something artsy each day.
