Well, I finally finished my large 2017 calendar.
I found this calendar on one of my favorite Australian blogs, Shabby Art Boutique. I printed the 12 pages on 8 1/2 by 11 inch card stock.
Next, I used Japanese pearlized watercolors to add a different colored wash around the boarder of each month. Love to use these for a little shimmer when painting a picture with regular watercolor paints. Sometime I will add a little shimmer to things like sun rays in pictures. Fun watercolor paints to experiment with.
Here is the printed calendar.
I painted a light color wash the border on each month and let them dry.
Next I highlighted the flowers with different shades of Stickles.
And when everything was dry I punched two holes at the top edge and hung my new calendar by a length of pink dyed seam binding.
