Mixed Media Challenge – November 2017 Mini Calendar

  Hi!  I’m very happy to be here with as a member of the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Design team with a project for our October  Mixed Media Challenge.

Remember to add the above 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 for November.
As you can see, the Honey bees have been visiting and have left some delicious honey for my tea!
 
It’s a good thing too because we’ve had a week with power outages and crazy weather. A hot cup of tea (thankful for a gas range top to heat water) was a very nice thing to have!!
I used the ARTplorations stencils Coffee Cup and Honeycomb Delight Mini. I also used STAMPlorations “Trendy Leaves 2” and  “Something to be Thankful For.”
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!

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!

Mixed Media Challenge + Stencil Sunday – March 2017 Mini Calendar

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

I also have a discount code for you!

Shery, of STAMPlorations, has generously given me a code to share with you.

Use COUPON code STAMPGIRLMELISSA and receive 20% OFF at STAMPlorations!

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.
