The Dog Days of Summer

“Great Day” 10 X 10 MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE USING A CALENDAR PAGE

It was super fun to repurpose this darling dog calendar page!  I should have purchased more of the calendar pages!  The estate sale had at least 100 of them, oh well.

I knew I wanted to use “It’s going to be a great day” because that’s what puppies think!

After the green acrylic paint was dry I adhered flowers that were punched from actual daisy flowers that I printed out.  I used a ruler to guide a green paint pen for the stems.

I printed a clip art sign on cardstock and used glue stick to attach the magazine font and an odd assortment of die cut letters.  All that was left to do was cut out the dog and glue him to the collage!

This was a really easy repurpose and I hope it will bring smiles and be a gentle nudge to remember every day is a great day because we are alive and God has a great and beautiful purpose for each of us especially for this day!

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalms 18:24.
