I thought this project idea was so cute, but I don’t collage...at all... so I made it my own. I used watercolours to paint out some silly bits and then I cut them all up with scissors (while watching tv, lol, all that intricate cutting!) I then glued them onto my calendar from Lucie in a sort of pop-up way. I like how they come off the page (see last pic).

I didn’t know exactly what to use for my wooden spoon ;) and ended up using this paintbrush that I’ll never use for watercolours, it’s way too long for that, but perfect for this! I used washi tape to hold the paint brush (folded over, so it is not sticky) and a strip of black pastel paper for the top. I like the way the gold edged ribbon goes with the gold in the washi tape :) I feel like it needs something to ground it, some shading or marker to show the ground, but I think I’ll leave it as is for the moment.

Any thoughts?
