Calendar Mosaics

Last week at Little Red House, Mary shared with us her calendar made with templates from Shutter Sisters. I was hooked. The templates are for a 5 x 5 calendar which could be put in a cd case but I printed them on 5 x 7 photo paper and put a month in an acrylic frame.

So much for what I had hoped to accomplish that day much less that week!

I started planning next year’s Christmas presents. I will make calendars from photos that I have taken at my friends’ houses. Yup, I dropped everything. I was forced to deal with Photoshop….. and I played.

Oh, Carol, what a lovely thing! I love the month-by-month in the acrylic frame! I'm going to have to go through some of my photos and see if I can shamelessly copy your idea! Thanks for posting this.

Morning Carol, the calendars are great, what a good idea. I can see why they take so long as they are perfect. Have a good week, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

What a good idea - I'll have a look, but don't know whether my photography or computer skills are up to the task. Great gift though!
