I have created a set of 2012 Basketry Calendar pages that are sized to print out on 8.5" x 11" paper. Here is the page for the month of February. You can view the rest of them as they are posted on http://www.flickr.com/photos/basketmakers and see more basketry graphics on http://basketmakers.com/topics/graphics/graphicsmenu.htm
2012 BasketMakers Calendar ~ February
Created with fd's Flickr Toys.
Click on the image so that it displays on a black background, then locate the link at the top of each month that says "all sizes". Select the original size image (800 x 1035) and save a copy to your computer. Then use your printer options to print to fill an 8.5 x 11 piece of cover stock or photo paper in portrait orientation. Printers and computer systems are individual, so you may have to play with it a bit. I usually select "high quality" in the print preferences. You may get different results if you chose "borderless" or other options. Enjoy!
This month's feature photo pictures an ash basket made by Beth Peterson and Mark Kelz, exhibited at Basketry Today: A New World of Methods and Materials. Mark and Beth create baskets of Oregon ash, Fraxinus latifolia, which is similar to the eastern black ash with handles of yew or manzanita. Floral and animal designs on their handles are carved from a single piece of yew wood, not glued on afterwards.
