February just showed up and I hadn’t had a calendar page ready for this month for my brandnew handmade desk calendar. Oh la la…
So, about a week ago, I devised this one, in less than 3 minutes… !! (Taking this picture, cropping and color correcting it in Photoshop took more time than the project itself!)
Granted it is not so ‘Valentine-y’, but then again, there are more things going on in February than just Valentine’s Day.
It still has hearts from a strip of old wrapping paper plus cut-out flowers from a drawing that my 5 year old has made. Best thing I did was to teach her own to draw roses. (Mmmm… idea for another free kid craft tutorial.)
Most importantly, my desk calendar page for February is functional. This time, I left the S M T W T F S – day strip off the calendar, but next time, I will add it again, as it’s practical to have it. Hope this page is inspirational for your own art project.
Craft Project Planning
Also, this is a reminder for all of us, to cut the background today for MARCH, so that you can use the next 20 days to get ready for next month. Tip: put the background paper in an envelop, decide on a color scheme. Any random scraps of paper and ‘things’ that come your way, add it to the envelop as you go.
