I stumbled on Balzer Design blog a long time ago. Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is crazy creative and shares so many ideas. She offered up a daily art journal challenge. I love the idea of this.
I had an idea several months ago about using my desk calendar to journal on. I want to document my 25th year of my job. I decide to begin on January 1, 2011. One late night I was catching up on some of the blogs I follow and here's where it all came together. The next day after reading her entry I put together my journal kit(paints, brush, markers & pencils) and took it to my office. I painted some backgrounds squares into the first week of January since I was going on vacation. Each day in my job something awesome happens in the mist of all the chaos. That's what I want to capture on the calendar. I'll post photos as I complete the month. This is so exciting.
