Better late than never! lol

Well here it is ..... my March page for the callendar challenge over at http://thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com/. it was supposed to be posted on the 1st of March but haven't had chance till now. Still better late than never eh? In my defence I have been a bit under the weather AND... I have been doing a lot of stuff for Debbi (of Debbi Moore designs). Have a quick look at her web n see how much she has going on - http://www.debbimoore.co.uk/

I started my page by laying down gesso n closing the book, opening it again to create loads of texture. I painted the pages with shades of blues and greens and painted some branches, leaves and flowers to create a 'spring' feel.I then worked on the background, building up various layers to add depth.

The sheep are a digi stamp from Octopode (http://frillyunderwear.blogspot.com/p/shop_26.html) which I resized to make the lambs. I LOVE the quirky look of all the Octopode images. I have coloured them with promarkers but it doesn't show up in the pic.

This butterfly is made up of my own drawing and the head of octopode's queen Elizabeth and.....

... this one is another of my drawings with the head of  Glinda, the good witch from the wizard of oz (again, Octopode) To finish the whole thing off  I added touches of stickles glitter glue.Pleased with it but disappointed it's soooo late :(
