Calendar Journal for March

Just finished the March page of my calendar journal!
I'm 2 months behind but who's counting ^_^
I really liked this Vintage Garden 2014 Calendar and couldn't bring myself to bin it.
It's ring bound and made of fairly sturdy card so I decided to journal on it.


I'm trying to co ordinate my pages with the existing printed illustration most of which are monochrome. I usually have a basic idea then do a little bit at a time until eventually I'm happy with it.


The gorgeous digital image is by Jeremiah Ketner called Hana (smallandround on Etsy)
I used watercolours, Prismacolour pencils and touches of Cosmic Shimmer paint.
The background at the bottom is a pretty floral and bird pattern tissue paper.



Hope you like it ^_^

    What a wonderful way to use an old calendar, you've done a wonderful job of brining those monochromatic tones to life.

  3. This is absolutely beautiful and such an ingenious idea!!! Did you fussy cut your digital image and then apply it to your calendar? I love it - you always put me in awe when I visit you. You have been very busy and creative to say the least!!! Big Hugs and blessings
