Sometimes i think of things in the form of images or colours...when i think of November, i think of the colour purple...november is purple...

In Israel, the rain usually begins in november...so when i started thinking about how i would design the month of november for Marianne's calendar swap...i kept coming up with purple rain.


Now youre probably thinking about Prince's song from the 80's...but when i looked it up, the connotations werent so good ;)...or maybe you are thinking about the book by Alice Walker..

...in the end i just went with my intuition and produced this set of collages...

I like how some of them came out looking like winter jumpers in their texture!

happy thursday everyone!!

    julie,
    you amaze me. these are so wonderful. my calendar page looks rather elementary...but remember, i spent 11 years working with preschoolers. i think some of it rubbed off. um, can i come over for some art lessons?! :) xoxo shari
