Create A Day

One creative project every day for a year

I am now an astonishing 6 (aaaahhh!!! :shock: ) days late!! But, like I said, these past couple of weeks have been insane what with last week’s crazy busy work schedule and me rushing to pack and move this week! But, I thought I’d take a breather for a bit today and do a post! I hope to catch up on next week, but maybe this will help me not be too ridiculously far behind!

I’ve seen some desktop images from time to time that were calendars. I always thought it was a neat idea and a good way to not get tired of the same old background (mine’s been the digital portrait I did of Elizabeth Taylor since the day I made it… oops), so I decided to create my own for August! I wanted to give it a summery theme, so I found a simple image of a table and chairs with an umbrella and I did everything in Benjamin Moore Pottery Barn Spring/Summer 2011 Colors! Every single color used (even the lines and numbers on the calendar!) came straight from that collection! so here’s the final result!

Click the image to see it full-size and feel free to set it as your desktop wallpaper! I made it 1024×768 pixels because that was supposedly the “standard” size for desktops, but when I tried to use it as mine, I had to stretch it out to get it to fit!

I think it still looks pretty good, even stretched out! I enjoyed doing this, so I may make this a monthly thing!

Sorry I’m so behind… I promise I’ll catch up next week!
