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
