It's a GORGEOUS day, today – so warm (66 – whoa...) and sunny. Just beautiful.
The March calendar page above was created by Pipp. It's a lovely and eclectic mix of lace, fabric, sheet metal (!), torn paper and vintage buttons. It even includes a quilt square. I enjoy the blending of torn brown craft paper and vintage lace and fabric. It's a nice visual contrast. I often use torn brown paper with shinier elements in my work just for that reason. Lots of great textural elements going on in this page. Sheet metal – who would have guessed?? (It's the reddish brown area speckled with silver.) There's a very nostalgic feel... which somehow seems to go with March...
In her beautiful handwriting, she has written at the bottom of the page:
"Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn."
Just perfect. Thanks, Pipp!
