Your July calendar page is very summery even if the weather wasn't and I love August's fishes Carol. When you've completed the whole year it will be a lovely reminder of 2011.
I was thinking soap bubbles for that photo, but I bet the bbq sauce tasted better - it's made a lovely pattern. I wonder what you will do with it.

I love the photo. It would make a great wax painting!

Love these, Carol, but especially like August - the design is wonderful and the colours are lovely. I do enjoy looking at all these calendar pages and must join in some time. Hope your studying's going well x

What a lovely nautical theme, fabulous August page! You're still pretty spot on with timing as far as I can tell. I did my July page on the 30th July lol ;) Love the BBQ sauce, would definately make a great background. Good luck with the studying! x

2 gorgeous pages, love the colours and the stencilled flowers. I thought it was alcohol ink on a fragment! Good luck with your studies xx

Fabulous July journal pages - congratulations on the 99%. Looking forward to seeing your BBQ sauce artwork.

More fabulous pages Carol, I love the colour combination you've chosen for this month.
As for the last picture, my first thought was alki inks and then a glass of coke but knowing what you're studying, it's most probably gastric mucosa. eek!

Marilyn Rock said...

Love your calendar pages and August is wonderful, too! I would have sworn that picture of the BBQ sauce was alcohol inks :) Nothing is sacred with our art right?

xxoo

Alison said...

August looks gorgeous Carol! The colours are beautiful! Lol at your BBQ sauce! xx

Love your July & August pages! I went multicoloured this month. I thought that the sauce was alcohol inks that had been spritzed with staz on cleaner - I really am getting sad xxx

Hermine said...

Both look absolutely great!

Photocat said...

Your August page looks so wonderful. Love the fish swimming around. Can't wait till it is filled to see how you work around the fish...

Good to see you are still finishing your calendar pages! They look fabulous. Love the colors on August! Your barbque sauce picture is awesome! I thought it was alcohol inks on acetate!

Sheila MJ said...

Love the August fish - hope you get to teh beach ! Great colours in July too.

Neet said...

Don't know how I missed this post Carol - great pages but especially like the August one. I would have loved to have done this but doubt I would have kept up.
Love your plate, now how on earth did you come to look at that so closely - I agree though - and it would make a nice background paper too.

Hugs, Neet x
