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.

IMG_9641september

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

IMG_9987september

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.

IMG_9988september

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.

IMG_9644september

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

IMG_9986september
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.

IMG_9982september

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!

Stencil Sunday – July 2016 – A decorative plaque from a broken tile

Hi!  I’m very happy to be here with a post for STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday.

 

Here’s a plaque that I created using the ARTplorations Stencil – Happy Flowers and a stamp from Trendy Birds.

IMG_9767birdplaque

It’s a a broken roof tile (I think that is what it is? Maybe one of my German friends will know?)  I found it in a pile of other broken roof tiles, pottery, shingles and bricks on a dirt road in the hills of the Oberammergau area of Germany. This was the largest piece there, most of the others were about the size of your hand. Making this plague reminded me of a  the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 61.IMG_9771birdplaque

       How I made this project:

  1. Washed & dried tile.
  2. Sponged embossing ink through the flower portions of Happy Flowers – ARTplorations Stencil.

    IMG_8914birdplaque

  3. Added red embossing powder & heated with heat embossing tool.
  4. Sponged embossing ink through the stem portions of Happy Flowers – ARTplorations Stencil.IMG_9772birdplaque
  5. Added green embossing powder & used heat embossing tool to set.
  6. Added yellow Gelatos to center of flowers.
    IMG_9769birdplaque
  7. Sponged embossing ink all over flowers and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  8. Stamped the bird (Trendy Birds) and the sentiment in black ink and added clear EP and heat set.IMG_8917birdplaque
  9. Added white acrylic paint to bird.
  10. Colored grass and sky with Gelatos, added clear embossing powder and heat set.
I had a lot of fun creating this plaque and I hope that you have been inspired to create your own mixed media projects! Please check out my teammates’, MariLynn’s and Susanne’s, projects here.
