{Mixed Media Tutorial} Melissa Makes a Festive "Fourth" Inspired Calendar

  
Hi! I'm here to share another mixed media calendar with you today. I hope you enjoy seeing the process I used to create it. 
Here's the mini calendar page that I made.


 I used the following ARTplorations and STAMPlorations products:



1. I started by stamping the large butterfly from Trendy Butterflies 2.



 2. I inked up (embossing ink) and stamped with the backs of the butterfly stamps and then heated embossed with clear embossing powder over the initial images.


3. I stamped with the Happy Sunflower in blue ink over the red, heat embossed, butterflies.


4. I added more color, texture and details using Super Bubbles 






5. I created another, smaller panel using Super Bubbles and Stars Align.


 6. To finish, I cropped the panel, added a little calendar and attached both to the larger panel which I had framed in heavy, blue cardstock. 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.





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,
