On March 8th, I posted some photos of lovely 3D paper stars that a friend had made from last year's calendar. So creative!
Another friend has started sending me postcards with watercolour renditions of images from this year's calendar. (You can see the results below.) He is well known for his watercolour interpretations of haiku, and I'm delighted that he has started painting my flower portraits!
To be honest, I'm not quite sure how he does it. I think the original watercolour is done on postcard-sized paper and copied. This copy is then cut out and pasted on the postcard he sends to me. I'll have to ask him the next time we meet.
Again, I'm so pleased these images have found a second life!
Thank you, K and I! \(^.^)/
So, what do you do with pictures from an old calendar? You So, what do you do with pictures from an old calendar? You make 3D paper stars, of course! Well, to be honest, I had never thought of such a thing until a dear friend sent me a photo of what she had done with my 2021 calendar. She made double-sided 3D paper stars to hang in her granddaughter's room. I was delighted! Such a great idea!
She was kind enough to share the instructions and send a few more photos, and I'm passing them on to you. If you do try this, please let me know! Or, if you have used my old calendars in other creative ways, I'd love to know about that as well.
I'm just so pleased that the images have found a second life.
Thanks so much, K and J! (And W, too!) (^.^)/
