where it comes from

it's here! the pixelimpress 2010 desktop calendar. i finished making it last week and posted it to my shop a few days ago. my concept for the calendar was patterns. lots of pattern. and color. i thought i'd show you some of my inspiration behind the designs and color choices.

i saw these herringbone stockings in the jcrew catalog.
so i made my own herringbone pattern and it became the background for december.

the chevron stripe. gotta love it. april and october were inspired by this.

we've already discussed my love of stripes.
they're perfect for july.

leslie of a creative mint did another color me pretty post on holly's decor8. i love leslie's posts. this one inspired my colors for march.

greek key, like in this rug, is a popular pattern. i made my own and it became november.

the calendar is for sale in my shop.
