Step By Step Calendar Page - May

I finally got started on May's calendar page just a couple days before May started...it came to me pretty quickly...my backyard is starting to green up and I wanted the page to mimic all the gorgeous greens!  Here are the steps I went through to make the page:

First I splattered two pieces of card stock with green and turquoise watercolor.

Next I painted another piece of cardstock with a pale green watercolor and cut out my squares.  The leaves are cut from Latin text pages painted with green and turquoise acrylic paint.

I then outlined the leaves with a water based Sharpie paint marker and spritzed watered down ink on the squares.  

The last step was to outline each day with the Sharpie marker and number them.  I also lettered the large "May" in Sharpie paint marker and colored it in with darker turquoise watercolor and used the same paint to outline the days of the month.
Now it's time to start filling in the days...
