Welcome to 2012. 
Just towards the end of term,  in between Snowmen, wrapping paper, and glitter some of my         classes at Southmuir were practicing their watercolour techniques.   Wet on wet, splatter, masking tape, wax resist, washes etc etc.....

They made lots of swatches, using a whole bunch of different scrap paper, from the scrap paper bin and old books (delighted in ripping up Margaret Thatchers biography that I picked up at the charity shop......Oh! the irony).
So we turned them into little calendars.  Four squares for 4 seasons....... and the background card?   Printed with bubble wrap of course....not tired of it yet!
