March Calendar page- Stick it Down

Happy Saturday!  It is the last day of the month and here I am to share my calendar layout for the month of March.  I was inspired by this great sketch from Stick it Down:

To create my background, I started with two white sheets of cardstock.  I used the polka dot mask and some green spray ink for the right hand page.  I then took the mask and flipped it onto the left hand page and used a brayer to transfer the ink onto the paper. I like how it turned out and it is a good way to use all that ink that ends up on the mask! I cut up a couple of pieces of patterned paper and corrugated paper for the background pieces.  I typed up my journaling and printed it on coordinating cardstock and then cut it into strips. 

 I was also inspired by the 2/11 Word Wednesday challenge at My Scraps and More.  The challenge was to use the word "everyday" and the have a date on your layout.  Since most of the photos on this page are "everyday" type photos, I thought it worked pretty well as part of the title.  And, since this is a calendar page, there are lots of dates. :)
