Art Calendar 2012 366 Challenge - June

Well here it is ready and waiting for my first entry.  I have wanted to keep a diary for quite sometime now but never been motivated enough to do it.  I came across this monthly challenge through flickr.  I treated myself to a  Canson mixed media 9" x 12" 98lb journal which seems to work really well with watercolour and acrylic paints.    I did a wash of ultramarine, crimson, pthalo green and yellow to create a sea and sky background.  I stamped it with swirls at the bottom and tiny fish and seahorses in green and blue.  Each blue cardstock square is distressed with green distress ink and  dedicated to a single day of the month.  As the month progresses I will write a note for each day and add any ephemera or finds to the page.   As you can see I made a mess on the right hand side stamping a red crab and tried to cover it with paint but it didn't work so something that I collect in this month will be added to cover it.  I do hope to go to the beach a few times this month so I will look among the flotsam and jetsam for something special.
