End of November and Two Inches of Art a Day

We get so much junk mail at work and some of it has really cool graphics.  I decided to cut out some of that art in the shape and size of the boxes on my desk calendar and glued them over each day as it passed.  It went a lot faster than I expected and became a lot easier when I took a scrap of transparency film and cut that out to the size to use as a lay-over pattern when deciding what graphics to use.  I found this size calendar at the Dollar Tree last December and it was the perfect size for the corner of my desk but they don't have the same one for next year, or at least not yet.  I'm hoping I'll still be able to find one this size again.

  1. I love that scribbled snowflake and those bluebirds made me smile :) Are you in for another 30 days????? :) My 30 days is getting stretched out a bit... :)

  2. I just love what you did with the calendar and junk mail - what a wonderful way to give it another lease of life, even if only for a short while. The birds (what a suprise!!) and the 'mum are my favourites of your month of art.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
