Mixed Media Challenge + Stencil Sunday – September Mini Calendar

Hi!  I’m so happy and excited to be here with as a member of the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Design team with a project for Stencil Sunday and the September Mixed Media Challenge.

Remember to add the following challenge graphic to your post in order to be eligible for the prizes each month.
The winner will receive a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate or 2 ARTplorations stencils. And the top picks receive an ARTplorations stencil of their choice.

Here’s a mini calendar page that I made using the ARTplorations Stencils – Happy Flowers,

Some Birds and Chevron Crazy.

The calendar measures approximately 5 3/4″ x 8 3/4″ or 14.5 x 22.25 cm matted.

I inked up the backside of the Happy Flowers stencil in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then printed on mixed media paper. I put the stencil ink side down and then covered it with printer/copy paper and rubbed firmly, but carefully to transfer the ink.

Then I stenciled the Happy Flowers through the front side of the stencil with red and green ink. Next I stenciled on Some Birds in black.

I made the background frame with the Chevron Crazy stencil and Some Birds.

I designed the little calendar as a word document and printed it onto white cardstock. It measures about 4″ x 2 1/4″ or 4 cm x 5.75 cm. I inked the edges of the calendar by swiping it across a black ink pad and attached it with foam tape.  I matted the project in white cardstock and mounted it on my chevron panel.

I had a lot of fun creating this calendar page and I hope that you have been inspired to create your own mixed media projects! I’d be very glad to have you join us for the mixed media challenge this month. I’m so excited to be here with you and I can’t wait to see what you make!

Please remember that this is not a card challenge…it’s anything BUT a card.  🙂

To be sure that you’re eligible for the prizes each month, please create a mixed media project, add a link to the challenge and also remember to show the Mixed Media challenge graphic. Please check out what the rest of the design team has made here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,
