Calendar update

Happy February everyone - kids are back to school tomorrow after summer holidays and I am quite looking forward to getting back into routines again...I will miss staying in pj's until after 9am and I am not looking forward to getting back to school lunches and the morning rush, but I have a few projects to work on this month, and my Mixed Media Melange workshop which will finally get some devoted time tomorrow.
I finished my January calendar pagesI haven't worked out how to load pictures in blogger that you can click on to enlarge, so here are a couple of close-ups of the base pages and the finished. They look quite different now they are embellished and covered in writing. I wonder what February will hold This month I went with paper. We have a calendar of art work by Alphonse Mucha in our kitchen so I was inspired to use one of his paintings as my inspiration - this one is called "Summer". I will title it February when inspiration hits!
Don't forget to check out the other calendar pages on flickr

Beautiful pages! Love the start of the Feb one...have just been looking at the art work of Mucha for an online course I am doing! x

I love that you have gone landscape with your pages, It gives you a lot more room to embellish,
look forward to seeing more,
Kat.

Hi Lynette
Great start to the Calendar chalenge, and yes once the writing and the embelishments go down, the pages look so different.
I had yo laugh at your opening comment about kids going back to school after the summer hols. In the UK it is freezing (although not as much as the begining of the month!)
Looking forward to see more pages in the coming months.

Gorgeous calendar pages - they really come to life with the writing on. Summer holidays? That sounds funny - we are in the middle of winter!

These are great pages Lynette, they do look totally different when they're filled in don't they? I like how you tilted the journal blocks on your Febraury pages - it gives a great effect :)

Lovely pages, such a treat to think of sunshine in this dreary weather.
