366 Challenge:

Hay everyone
So I decided to join in with Kate Cranes calender journal page challenge this year,
I admired lots and lots of pages all last year so figured why not try it myself this year.
I'm working in a brand new {and my first} Moleskine Sketchbook.
For this month I used distress stains and inks, and some TH vintage shabby papers, the stamps are 'urban stamps' by papermania, and the pens are faber-castell pitt pens and a sharpie finepoint.
I'll be back on Friday with my new DT reveal!! 
Till Then..Stay Inky
