Calendar Challenge : February/March

Here we are with February finished. My initial pages started like this
Since I have been loving Joanne Sharpe's online course so much and gaining confidence with my lettering, I decided it was best to start with that for my month and day headings - used a Sakura Glaze Pen for this
Next up some doodling with my White Uni-ball Signo pen was in order to fill in the gap along the bottom
and not long after it seemed a good idea to add some down the side
and eventually the entire month was covered in doodles!
March is totally inspired by the whimsey grids I created here and here whilst doing Joanne's course (you really should sign up - it's open forever and it's wonderful)
I do love colour and sprays, so instead of beginning with a white page like the above examples, I started by spraying my pages with my Golden Airbrush sprays. Then I drew in my initial lines
and the grid for my calendar days
I had to add the lettering right away of course
Intending to keep the word count down and focus on lettering for this month so call back 1st April and see how I've gone
Check out the other participants at the Kathryn Wheel, or see our Flickr group
Hope you have a great creative March
