March Calender page

 Hi Everyone,

How are you today then? I was lovely to get a nice sunny day for once it has been so long without one.

Today I am continuing with Kate Crane Calender Challenge which the deets can be found here http://thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com/2012/03/march-is-here.html  basically you do a little journaling each day for a month and you upload your before and after shots to Kate"s Blog. So far so good i am managing to keep up although you will see that i have forgot to add March as a title on my page.....this will be rectified by the end of the month......

So here it is ....March......
 I liked how this page turned out the colours are bright .....wishes of the nicer weather to get here quicker and as you can see i used a fair amount of Dylusions stamps.....infact i think apart from the gesso and the small squares it is all Dylusions.....the sprays and the paints are so vibrant and they keep their colour wonderfully ....here is a close up .......
Don't you just love her ......she is one funky I said FUNKY chick.

And just to prove my feb pages are all complete here you are ......although it makes for very boring reading....how come other peoples doings sound better than your own..!!


So  last month I was going to Art from the Heart for a class with Dyan Reaveley well i did that and i have to say it was Fabbbbberrrrrroooooonnnnnnnneeeeeeeeyyyyyyyy. (do you think i liked it!! if you would like to see what kind of things we did its on the previous post!!)  Also last month both my children got star of the week (proud mum).

This month  I have another class scheduled for beginners art journaling with Dyan and also next week i have a class booked with Dina Wakely ( oh happy days springs to mind!!) Although the class for the next beginners art journaling is on mothers day ........mmmmmm spoilt for 20 mins of kids or spoilt for the day going to class .....what is a girl supposed to do ........yep you got it.... leaving for class at 8 am that means girls have from 0630 to 0745 to spoil mummy !! Well it is mothers day can we not do what we want??? I will leave you with that .....what do you think??? 

Anyway enough rambling from me catch up with you soon .....Thanks for stopping by ...take care Mandy xx

  7. Your March page is gorgeous, Mandy! I just love the colours and the stamps you've used. Beautiful work!
    As for your question, I really cannot draw, I completely suck at it. The girl I used is a stamp designed by Suzi Blu for Unity Stamps, it's called Party Love. Pretty little girl (and yes, I do wish I could draw like that :) ).
    Aren't you lucky, classes with both Dyan and Dina! Have fun!! :)

  15. Wow...all this time I thought you lived in Lincoln, Nebraska. My first clue that it was Lincoln, Great Britian was the extreme jealousy I felt upon learning you were taking classes with Dyan!! Okay, now I've looked a map and can properly place you. I LOVE your calendar pages; so bright and chipper. I was so sick of red and pink by the end of February...but your organge and pink is fantabulous! Enjoy all the classes and creativity ... Lucky Girl. And as my Dad used to say, sometimes its better to be lucky than good!
