Here’s a mini calendar page that I made using the ARTplorations stencil Chevron Crazy.img_5349_edited-1The calendar measures approximately 5 3/4″ x 8 3/4″ or 14.5 x 22.25 cm matted.

  1. First, I created the rainbow panel with Brushos and the Chevron Crazy stencil on watercolor paper.
  2. After the panel dried, I added white embossing paste through the same stencil.img_5356_edited-1
  3. I matted the rainbow chevron panel with blue and white cardstock.
  4. I sponged blue ink through the same stencil again, around the edge of the entire matted panel.img_5346_edited-15. I designed the little calendar as a word document and printed it onto white cardstock.  I die cut the calendar with the smallest of the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

img_5357_edited-16. I decorated the calendar by sponging a variety of inks through the Chevron Crazy stencil once again.

7. I inked the edges of the calendar by swiping it across a turquoise ink pad and then attached it with foam tape.

I really had a lot of fun creating this bright 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,
