First of all I want to wish everybody a fantastic New Year! May all your dreams come true!!

And with a new year I’ll need a new calender…
I bought a calender with pictures of cats. I liked the cats so they could stay, on the rest of the pages I glued parts of old newspapers and covered those with a layer of gesso. I played with  some paint,  crayons, tape and rub-ons and to finish each page I took some old magazines to create the names and dates of the birthdays of my family and friends.

I just finished the first four months:
