April Calendar for 366 Challenge
This year I am participating in the 366 Calendar Challenge of Kate Crane at The Kathryn Wheel. Each month the participants create a calendar page, and then through the month write, draw, or journal a small something for each day (this is a leap year, hence 366 days).
Here are my March pages all completed:
And here are my new April pages, with April 1 filled in.
I really like how they turned out. I acrylic paint for the backgrounds, some gesso for the day circles, a bit of stamping with sequin waste and some other tools using the paint smeared wipey, and then some water color pencils to make flower petals. I made too many circles on one of the branches on the right side, so in the extra circle I wrote a quote from E.M.Forster that I read on a blog yesterday: "What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives."
