Here is my February all fresh and green and ready to go.  It may be freezing, but the sun is shining and there are snowdrops in the garden.

I made the background by printing the pages with white acrylic and then giving it a watercolour wash.  The paint acts as a resist.  My paisley lino cut gives a damask effect.  I scanned the pages for the squares and added a bit of depth to the wash with watercolour and Inktense pencils.

January has turned out rather lively.  The blank page was very unexciting but wintery silhouettes added some atmosphere.

There are lots of calendar pages on the Flickr site or your can link to calendar blogs from Kate's page, do take a look.
It's not too late to take up the challenge.
