I can't believe we are into April  already and it is beginning to get cold instead of warmer, last week we had an heat wave that was probably our summer been and gone. Well here are my pages for Kate's Art Calendar challenge and I have chosen a nice warm colour for the background-paint by Dylusions which you can't buy any longer luckily I have plenty. The little animals, egg and flowers are all from the Octopode Factory. The border is again from Dylusions-Inbetweenies. It is not quite midnight but I have filled in my last journal square for March and with any luck I will be able to post both pages.

It is a while since I posted anything, to be honest I haven't done very much as I am doing Tim's on line class "Creative Chemistry" so I am busy trying to keep up with that on a daily basis. I did this canvas on the 1st of March at our Ladies Who Lunch Play Day. Our inspiration was taken from Ellen Vargo who is now on Dyan's design team, go and take a look at her blog she produces some wonderful art, here is  a link to her blog ten thirty-six arts and crafts.
The canvas is a 10" x 6", gessoed, painted and stamped with stars and dots using a roller stamp which can be bought at Happy Daze. The houses were cut from Grunge board using Tim's die, covered in Ten Seconds Studio pearl metal which were embossed using various cuttlebug folders. I sanded mine and rubbed blue paint over the top and embellished with all sorts of Tim's ideaology. I finished it off by going all round the edge with a silver Krylon pen. I was going to give the canvas to a friend but now it is finished I like it and have decided to keep it.

I do a monthly atc swap with my friend Ann Flutterby Crafter, this month I made her a mini "She Art" canvas. We are both doing the on-line She Art course so I thought it would be appropriate. I used Claudine's sticky back canvas which I stuck to grey board then I created the background using paints, rub-ons,tissue paper,stamps and white paint through punchinella. The She Art Girl I cut out of old book pages and Basic Gray papers. I thought it was quite cute in minature, previously we have used 6" x 10" canvases, quite a difference in size.

I started well but fell at the last hurdle, my back ground was prepped and ready and then the time ran away and I didn't finish my March page until today. This is for the Art Calendar challenge that the very talented and creative Kate Crane set for us all.
