Calendar challenge : March/April

Late posting this month because of my wonderful girls' weekend in Raumati. Will post about that next time.
First the March pages - as they began March finished. I had started these pages with NZ book month and the newspaper reports of the February Christchurch earthquake in mind, so decided to complete them with hearts since I love books, and I also made hearts for Christchurch this month.
My April pages have been inspired by thinking about holidays beside the beach - the first weekend being spent in Raumati, and during the easter school holidays we will be having a family holiday to Nelson and the West Coast for 10 days. The base was a wash of apricot acrylic paint, and I rubbed turquoise acrylic over that. Then a layer of glitter glue to make it all sparkly - it looks like sun on water, and also golden sands on the beaches we will see in Nelson. I decided tags would be appropriate with the travel theme - they have been sprayed with Starburst Spray : Saxifrage Olive Copper (I got mine from the Thread Studio) It was hard to take photos of the pages so I've included these close-ups to show the sparkle of the page bases and the tags as well. Looking forward to filling in the days when I know we have such happy times ahead.
