My calligraphy and pressed flower calendar for 2014 has some interesting images and I would like to tell you about them.
First of all this is a desktop calendar in a CD case. That means you flip the case open and it
will sit on a desktop or a countertop and give you a great display of each month. Guaranteed to start your day in beauty.
January has pressed grapes in the image. Since the dark days of January need some cheer, it seemed appropriate to me to show some fruit of the vine!
February has a white flower look to it as February often brings snow. This is white stuff of
a beautiful nature. There is white dogwood, viburnum, daisies, nigella (love-in-a-mist), candytuft, Carolina smoke tree, astilbe and dianthus.
March loves hellebores (Lenten roses). Hellebores start to bloom in January and will bloom all the way through June. They are one of my favorites. One cannot have too many hellebores. Also included are crocae, mini daffodils, candytuft and Carolina smoke tree.
April shows the colors of Easter with purples, blues and greens. This is from an experimental design using PhotoShop and inverting colors. Hydrangeas, pansies and leaves are there.
May is the gardener’s delight with daisiies, guara, veronica, verbena, sweet woodruff and buttercups.
June has bleeding hearts. I have a huge bleeding heart in my backyard. Each year it blooms profusely. Also money plant, verbena, viburnum, violas, coreopsis and sweet woodruff are present in this design.
July celebrates the heat of summer with red salvia, rudbeckia, marigolds, zinnia, sweet woodruff, daisy, verbena, and celosia. The flowers are so vibrant now.
August is about roses. Multiflora roses and Queen Anne’s lace.
September is from a botanic collage on canvas which has coreopsis, rose leaves, bamboo, larkspur and maple leaves in it.
October is all about leaves and these are maples. There are Norway, fire, red maple leaves as well as some chyrsanthemums.
November is a good time for mushrooms and these are all different kinds as well as some rosemary.
December has guara, coreopsis and passion vine intertwined between the Roman letterforms of NOEL which has music in it too.
So now you have a calendar which I hope will bring you enjoyment. I have received much reward in creating these designs and am happy to share them with you.
Don’t forget that you can order this calendar and other things on my etsy shop.
