This 2012 Lotus Flower Calendar is my latest lotus flower creation. I came up with the idea of making a calendar out of my lotus flower photos. Then, with the help of my son, Christer Rowan of Rowan Design, together we made my idea become a reality.
Christer is a photoshop genius. He took my photos, dropped out the background and made them look more like the actual lotus flowers than I had been able to do. I decided which lotus flowers to use for each month. Red for February for Valentine’s Day, April showers bring May flowers, fireworks for July, sunflower for August, roasted turkey looking lotus flower for November, etc.
The project took longer than I expected, but I enjoyed doing it so very much. I decided on an elongated plastic CD type case/stand that shows off the lotus flower while also letting the viewer easily see the entire month.
