{Mixed Media Tutorial} Calendar Page Wall Art by Melissa


Hello! Super excited Melissa here with my first mixed media tutorial for STAMPlorations featuring ARTplorations stencils.

Here's my calendar page wall art:



Here are the steps I used to create this project:

1. I printed a photograph and calendar (doubly) and trimmed the calendar into a banner shape.
 
    2. I wetted some mixed media paper and applied red Gelatos through the Hearts in Bubbles stencil onto the paper. I also used the inked up stencil to print the negative version of the stencil onto my panel.

      3. While the hearts dried, I sponged blue dye ink onto the calendar through the Stars Align stencil.

      4. Then I sponged navy ink through the Crazy Chevron stencil onto the dry bg panel.

      5. Next, I sponged silver ink on using the Bubbles stencil.

      6. I added flowers by applying red and green ink through Happy Flowers and then sponged on royal blue dye ink stars with Stars Align.

      7. Next, I stamped sentiments and butterflies in navy blue with Trendy Butterflies stamps.

      8. I masked off most of the photo & sponged the edge with navy blue dye ink.

      10. I removed the mask from the photo and set the photo aside to dry.

      12. I added more white embossing paste stars with Stars Align to the background panel.

      13. While that dried, I inked the edge of the calendar by dragging it along an dye ink pad.

      14. I framed the photo in red cs and added a piece of matboard for stability and dimension.

      15. I trimmed the bg panel and adhered it to matboard.

      16. I also stamped 3 large butterflies from Trendy Butterflies on tissue paper and fussy cut those. I used the back of the stamp, inked up in red, to stamp first and then the front of the stamp in navy to stamp over the red image.

      16. I adhered the tissue butterflies, the photo and the calendar to the bg panel.

      17. Finally, I framed the finished piece.
