    Corrie, nice to have the new furniture to look foward to. 🙂

     

    I’m thinking of making 2 calenders. One with mills and one with more seasonal pictures, because there will be only one picture per month on the calender. 🙂

    Hi Ann :)Yeah, I saw that after I downloaded the files 🙂 I thought I read somewhere all templates would be one picture this year, but I was mistaken I guess 🙂

    Oops, I better check the downloads. Maybe those are from last year!

    Yes, it was my mistake. Can you go back and download the correct ones? Otherwise, the dates won’t match 2022!

    Here are my first 4 pages. I decided to make more calenders. This one is about our beautiful country, the Netherlands. Photo’s are all taken on/at a museum terrain.

    Text from the website: “Explore the 44-hectare museum park. The activities taking place at the museum and the craftspeople practising their crafts bring the historic buildings to life.”Museum website

    Here are my March and April. It is difficult to come up with photos with the right size and perspective!

    In case you were wondering, my granddaughter is BIG fan of Downton Abbey (as am I 😉 ) And this is her Christmas gift.

    Loved Downton abbey too, Ann, now I know why your January picture looked so familiar 🙂

    Pirkko, I am a little puzzled. What template are you using? It looks different from the ones in the challenge.

    I just made it… I created large grid… numbers of days… and so on…

    was it supposed to use some specific template …?

    i can make this look similar … or at least try 🙂

    Monique lovely to see the “Openlucht Museum” always worth a visit!

    This is for calendar number 2 with the flowers. Of course I have made backgrounds for the other calendars too but they are in a similar style with gradients.

    Pirkko, the challenge was meant to go with the templates, so it makes things simpler. You can register here to get all the same templates. You can do something with different templates, but several tutorials will be hard to apply with something different.

    Here is my pages so far.  The gradient is cool.  I would like to figure out how to get the gradient with darker on top and lighter on the bottom.  yesterday with my starter page I was able to resize after saving as a .jpeg.  Today, it wont do that.  I have “saved as”  a jpeg for the 4 months, but when I go to resize and put in 600 there is a lock (I think that’s what it is) and it greys out the “ok” at the bottom so I cant click it.  It’s on “by pixel” .  I am using 2021 now.  Not sure what I’ve done.  I went into MS Office and resized it there.  Hope it’s not too large.  Nice to see so many varied and interesting calendars.

    I had much to do today, but trying to keep pace, so I need to get busy.

    I really don’t know why my calendar grid stayed gray on January, and not February. Maybe I missed a step, or added a step? Or I tripped up somewhere. Maybe I need to try it again when I am not tired.

    Pirkko, I want to know how you made the grid….

    Monique, the calendars are so easy to make that you can definitely make more than one.

    Ann, are those going to be on the same theme? All about Downtown Abbey? (I don’t follow that series).

    Marie-Claire, I see that you used a variety of gradient types. That is interesting.

    Corrie, beautiful flowers!

    Daphne, those dogs must take a lot of work in grooming!

    Susan, to change the dark/light, check in the gradient window and there is a checkbox with Invert. That will invert the two colors. For your issue with the Resize command, could you post a screenshot of the Resize window?

    Linda, the reason your grid is grey is that you might have had the Fill tool set to something else than None, so it filled based on the area you clicked and stopped at the edge of the grid. Try it again, and set the Mode to None first.

    Thank you Cassel.

    So many wonderful pages  in the  making.  So many different topics being displayed, from flowers, TV series to windmills.  Not forgetting , which is one of my passions in  observing and photographing,  birds.

    Pirkko, I hope you don’t mind me  commenting, and correcting you in the  species  of owl you posted.  I believe it’s not a Great Grey Owl, the markings resemble a Northern Pygmy Owl.   They are  much smaller, and  have a very coy expression about them.  I have attached a few pics of the Great Grey Owl  which  I took myself.    As  for the Snowy Owl,  it’s a young female.  As she is heavily marked with variable black barring.

    I like to add a little interesting info about the  birds and other creatures I shoot, to my calendars and other projects, for those that are interested.

    it is ok Sue 🙂  Thank you for the incorrect fix – my mistake

    it should be margarita noctua – pearl owl… wasn’t it

    I saw so many owls in google…the names got mixed up, my apology for the error

    Here are my January and February calendars.  The Photos are from my photos from last year January & February.  The background for Jan. is also one of mine. And I thought I would go with Valentine’s day for the background in Feb.
