Calendar challenge : Feb/March

February always speeds by so fast - there are so many things going on with kids going back to school and the new routines of the year to settle into - and it was only a 28 day month as well.
This is a reminder of how my February spread started And these are my completed February pages. As the month progressed I added the title, the days' entries, and some stamps between the days, and then looked at it for quite a while last night wondering how to complete it. In the end I decided to just paste on the red roses and move onto March.This month was inspired by NZ Book week....base made of torn book pages (from last year's library book sale). The daily squares are gesso outlined with a lovely thick Pitt brush pen - I also used that pen for the stencilled month title. The black and white also reminds me of all the newspaper reports about the Christchurch earthquake - it is appropriate that it is a bit stark as the country works through this disaster.
If you are in Palmerston North, check out the Palmerston North City Library's events for NZ Book month - including the library book sale, and visits from fabulous NZ authors like

Have a happy March everyone.

Love your pages especially the black and white for March. The Christchurch disaster was a shock even at the other side of the world. x
I have a few friends who live in NZ and it is such a shame as you have a beautiful country.
Our thoughts are with you all. x
