Creative fun making a classroom calendar...

Recently while I was off of work recovering and my youngest daughter got her first teaching job as a fifth grade teacher. I always knew that teachers had a lot of out of pocket expenses but didn't realize how much until now. One of the things that a classroom needs is a calendar... well we couldn't just have one of the blue deals that you slip the month and dates into a plastic pocket right? Not when you are artsy crafty.... so here are a view pictures of the beginnings of a classroom calendar....

I started off with a large deep canvas and this screaming green.
Some thought "oh my" not so good....

Next came the layer of purple and texture using saran wrap.

Then I cut out squares of a film to create a mask (I tried painter's tape first
and did not like it). I then spray painted a turquoise (I created the spray
paint my self using a deal the Tulip puts out, I will have to take a picture). I then
used white paint and bubble wrap for more texture.

This is a close up that shows the masking off of the squares and painted texture.

I have to run to work now so I will post a picture of the finished product and the Tulip spray paint deal later on....  thanks for stopping by and looking!
