and hopefully thawing out a bit. It truly is wonderful to see some melting of all the snow still piled up all over. And has anyone noticed the birds are changing their calls to songs of Spring? Oh it's also Daylight Savings Time here on Sunday- we move our clocks ahead 1 hour, giving us more daylight in the early morning. Three things I am grateful for! (If you click on the link it takes you to a list of DST dates for 2014 all over the world).
The art today begins with my March calendar spread. This idea was a prompt from my DYAY class with JoAnne Sharpe (link on sidebar).
And here's a close up of days 1 and 2 filled in. I am caught up but took this picture earlier to share with the class.

This next mixed media page in another one of my art journals was created for Piarom's (Conny) Mix it Monthly challenge for March. The theme is abstracts and the color inspiration is orange and blue.
Patty-I know you do the same:) I collaged them on. I wasn't quite sure what to do next to add interest so I played around with a variety of punched card stock shapes over the page. Once satisfied with it I glued them in place.
In an earlier post I shared two pages I had finished drawing in my DYAY journal but they still needed the watercoloring. Here they are all done!
Well, that's all for today. I'm trying to get ahead on some things for the coming week because next weekend St. Patrick's events are being held in town-which I won't miss-and in addition, the 15th is not only my birthday but also my two year blogiversary!! Wanna know how I will celebrate? With 3 giveaways!!!
So, stay tuned...
And thank you all for your comments last Friday. Sadly, the time got away from me and I did not reply to each. Just know how much I do appreciate your thoughtfulness.
