March Art Calendar page

I'm still managing to keep up with the art calendar challenge organised by the wonderful Kate.......March is a bit of an iffy month in the UK........can be wintery.......can be springlike.......probably will be a bit of both........so I went for a mix of browns and greens
A background of acrylic greens and browns......with a little bit of silver and gold thrown in........some stamped leaves........and a few trees and birds stuck on.
I have finished February's page........again it's mainly mundane, everyday events.........with one or two highlights thrown in......I think that's what it will be like most months.......but I still think it will be fun to look back on.

And there's a Flickr page where you can see all the calendar pages.

Lovely pages Jacky and I'm sure you life isn't mundane. Whatever you write for the day will be good to look back on in 12 months time.

This is such a nice way to keep track of what's going on in your life, even if they seem mundane. It's so easy to forget the little things.

Lovely pages Jacky, you summed up what March is like here in the UK perfectly. I did the challenge last year too and it IS great to look back and see what I got up to everyday for the whole year - even if some of it was mundane :)x

Your March page is looking so good, with the trees and the perfect touch of silver and gold. I think you are absolutely right - looking back on the ordinary can give as much pleasure as looking back at big events.

Oooh great pages. Loving those trees! I think we all feel our daily squares are a bit mundane but that's life isn't it?! Well done for keeping up with the challenge so far. Looking forward to seeing your April pages already! Kate

Seeing your calendar pages this morning makes me really wish I had started similar pages at the beginning of this year. These will be such great keepsakes for years to come, Jacky!
