Have you bought your new calendars yet? I love the classic Moleskine® diary with the not so classic inside. I prefer that they have a weekly timetable on one and a lined page on the other side. (You just don’t get to finish a to do list on one day or fit your thoughts into just one column per day)

I am in love with everything gold and everything Union Jack, so this is what you need:

  • diary
  • spray paint in gold
  • masking tape
  • cutter
  • old newspapers
  • pencil
  • stencil

Tape the front of your calendar neatly with masking tape. Now draw your Union Jack on it – beware of the layout. You will want to have broader lines to make the gold stand out.

Now cut out very, very carefully the lines or shapes you want to spray in gold later. Then peel of the masking tape.

Now spray paint. Leave set for 24hrs then peel of the remaining bits of masking tape. VOILA: new and very personal calendar!
