So, I’ve been out of the loop for a while. My old computer broke, hence the reason for the missing February calendar… But, I’m back online again, with a new computer and a new desktop background. Better late than never, they say…

For those of you sending me emails or comments, some of you even concerned and wondering if I’m still alive… OMG, thank you! Thanks for all the heart warming comments and taking the time to write me an email.

 

Just click on the size you want and save the background to your computer.

This photo was taken through a window while we where having breakfast at christmas eve. The light was beautiful, and to get to see the sun, even just for a couple of minutes was magical.

I wanted to show you what it can look like when I try different color combinations for my illustrations, here illustrated with the January desktop background. I usually start off with just picking a color palette that I like, either by browsing photos/illustrations on google, playing around in illustrator, or using one of many color palette generators (google it!). I like Color Scheme Designer. After I have my palette ready, I start applying it to my illustration, and keep changing it around until I’m satisfied. I absolutely LOVE this part of creating an illustration.

Happy new year my friends! New year, new month, new desktop background. I’ve decided to not do all the different sizes anymore, simply because there is not enough time. It takes me a lot of extra time to create all the backgrounds, save them, upload, link them properly… I’ve tried to pick a size that should suit most computers, it might get at little cropped though…

The theme for the year will be my “girls” and animals, as I plan to make more of a cohesive calendar and maybe put something together by the end of the year. I hope you stick around and use my monthly desktop calendars!

I you feel like changing things up on your desktop you can always use the owl wallpaper I created for december last year. It doesn’t have a calendar, and there’s only one size, but I think it’ll work for most screens anyway. Just click the image below and then save to your computer.

 

I cut out some of the christmas snowflakes from the Christmas Decorations book and used them as decor for my christmas presents. I guess it’s not very hard to guess what’s inside?  ; )
