Hi! Ulrika Wandler here to show you todays' tutorial.
Have you seen the new Calendar Girl?! Gorgeous! Many of my friends use it for their calendars and planners. Well, not me! I made a layout with it instead!
I will show you in a few steps how I made a mixed media layout using Pearlescents, mists, stamps and some other fun stuff!

I stated out by using some gesso along with a stickable stencil. The stickable part is perfect when you use gesso or stuff like that since it doesn't get under the stencil!
Then I added some splashes of Glimmer mist. I often use a homemade (very simple!) stencil to keep the mist from getting on the edges of the paper.
I also used some gesso mixed with water to make splashes!
I used one of my recent favourite stamps to make a pattern on the paper when the gesso had dried.
I just LOVE these lasercut chipboard pieces, especially the hearts!
I covered one with gesso, and added two layers of Pearlescents to make it shine!
This is how the layout ended up!
Some of the gorgeous papers from Calendar Girl together with a cute flower, some noteworthy diecuts and that cute heart!
I just couldn't resist using some glitter paste on the flower. I'm not sure if you can see it properly, but it sure is there! :-)
