March 2013 Calendar Pages/#Sizzix
I'll be teaching my March and April 2013 Art Journal Calendar pages at Ink About It in Westford, MA on January 5th. When I was creating the March calendar page I kept thinking of an old quilt pattern called "Grandmother's Flower Garden" which uses hexagon shapes. This idea morphed into just flowers with 6 petals and a center to equal one week. The background is done with gesso, Dylusions London Blue spray ink, Dyan Reaveley's diamond stencil, Pearlescent Embossing Paste by Dreamweaver spread through a chevron stencil with a credit card. The letters, rosette and hearts were cut using Sizzix dies.
Nice bright colors! I'm hoping for a nice, bright winter, with just a little bit of snow. We'll see how it all works out. Have a great weekend, talk to you soon~Renee
