{Mixed Media Tutorial} Melissa Creates an Over the Rainbow Calendar

  Hi! I'm here to share a fun mixed media calendar with you today. I hope you enjoy seeing the process I used to create it. 

Here's the finished mini calendar page that I made using the ARTplorations stencils/masks Retro CirclesJust Flow, and Where Trouble Melts.

I thoroughly enjoyed making the calendar for this month's Anything Goes Mixed Media Challenge. So, I decided to share how I made it.
1. I started by stenciling yellow ink through Retro Circles onto a panel of watercolor paper.

2. I covered the panel with the Where Troubles Melt Mask and sponged on a rainbow.

  3. I added rosy red gel pen outlines to the words.

4. Added Glossy Accents.

  5. After allowing the Glossy Accents to dry, I added a white frame, masked off the center of the panel and added white embossing paste through the Just Flow stencil.


  6. I removed the masking tape, allowed the paste to dry and trimmed the white panel.

7. I added the little calendar. 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.

8. I added the white lines to the mini calendar.

That's all I have for today. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and look forward to reading your comments. 
Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
