Calendar Challenge 3 months on ...

The last time I decided to join Kate Crane's calendar challenge in 2010, I managed to get to February!  Am very proud that I have this year managed to get March done.

March is my birthday month and I wanted this layout to reflect time out for me ... and there's nothing better than taking time out with a good strong cup of coffee.

I painted the pages with golden paints that matched a napkin I had with the coffee cups.  I then stuck a barcode sticker along the base and added the napkins in each corner.  I cut out the border from the napkins and glued it around the two pages to create a type of border.  I used some left over rubons, scrapbook cardstock as the squares, Making Memories sticker numbers on each square and for the year, then lastly some round stickers for the month which were black and white, so I coloured them in to blend in more with the coffee coloured layout. 

Kate Crane is running the Art Journaling Calendar Challenge again this year with a Facebook Group!/groups/calendarchallenge/ and there are so many amazing and varied artists participating.

This month my calendar page was the feature page on the Facebook group header ... was very chuffed.
