Step-By-Step: June Calendar Page

I finished June's calendar page a few days after June started...I always seem to do that.  Anyway, I am so into the green in my yard and all around me this time of year I thought the page should be as green as possible.  This background is splattered watercolor and watered down acrylic paint through a stencil of abstract squares.  

The day squares are made from lime green watercolor paint applied to cardstock.  There's a bit of brush marks on the squares that the camera didn't really pick up.

The finished page has June written in water based Sharpie paint marker.  I also stamped a few images around the edges in black StazOn ink.  I was really happy with how the individual day squares turned out, I just loosely brushed watercolor around each square and then added the day number in black gel pen.

I hope you have a ton of wonderful things to remember in June!  Happy green days!

Great greens! I really love your lettering, how you wrote "June", as well as the lines around your calendar squares. Beautiful calendar page!
