{Mixed Media Tutoria} A Cool Autumn Inspired Calendar by Melissa

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 STAMplorations products for this tutorial:

1. I started by die cutting leaves and birds from white cardstock.

  2. I stenciled a flock of some birds onto the background.

3. I adhered the die cut leaves and birds to the panel.

 4. I sponged on a rainbow of colors.

5. I stenciled leaves and stamped birds and heat embossed in clear and gold embossing powder, respectively.

6. I spritzed on white and black splatters and then trimmed the panel.

7. 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 die cut the calendar and framed it.

  9. I framed the page, adding some leaf stenciling on the bottom half of the panel  with homemade stencil made with Trendy Leaves 2 dies. I adhered the mini calendar to the panel.
That's all I have for you for today. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and look forward to reading your comments. 
Thanks for stopping by!
