Favorite Fabrication

~ photo heavy post ~

I shared my latest  desk top calendar with you yesterday.  and today, I want to share my favorite months.   The creative block for me, was the use of these bright, bold colors.  But, once I started, it became easy.  

love the mix of orange and aqua

love how the yellow pattern paper adds a splash of brightness

a splash of aqua

love the different shades of aqua, and the mix of patterns

love the 'glass' star and bakers twine

love the ruler

love the black and yellow color combo

I was pleasantly surprised how lovely these colors are together.  Abstractly, you would think, 'Yikes!'.  But, it really does work.  The crushed curry is repeated in the main pattern paper.  The aqua and orange are repeated as well.  
Thank you for looking.  I hope you have been inspired.  Making a desk top calendar isn't hard.  Just takes a little fore sight.  Use what you have.  And experiment with products that aren't 'easy' for you to work with.  You just might be surprised!
