For the Art Calendar Challenge at the Kathryn Wheel, I finished my calendar page for March just in time! February was a rough month for me. There was a lot going on in the household and on top of that I have been sick off and on for about half of the month. I hope that with Spring in sight, things will start to look up again!
For the March page I focussed on Ostara, the spring Sabbat that is celebrated on March 21st. It has a lot of the same elements as Easter does, like the eggs and bunnies. It is to celebrate that Spring has started and that the earth is fertile again (where eggs and hares are a fertility symbol). I also have added chicks and spring flowers to my page. And I used eggs instead of circles this time. I made a background in pastels (green, yellow, pink and white) with acrylics. I did this yesterday and today I pasted the elements on the page. So I barely made it in time ;) I love the cute bunny from fabric in the upper left corner :)
My finished February page :) I am glad I was able to find some lambs for the page and decorated it with some flowers to symbolise the first spring flowers I already spotted this month.
I love to use stickers to add some cheerfulness to a page. I am still enjoying making and using the calendar pages. It helps me to remember what I did when. It also reminds me how many days I was sick or tired and while this isn't really fun, it is helpful. I am already thinking what theme to choose for the April page. So far I am a bit clueless. So suggestions are welcome :)
