Mixed Media Butterfly with Rae

Hello and Happy Saturday!

Today I’m sharing a project that I made using the June mixed media kit.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about how awesome this kit is! The Prima Marketing resin butterfly pack is BEAUTIFUL! And those alcohol ink colors are so pretty! Here’s what I came up with:

There are two large butterflies in the set, and for this project I used the one with indentations on the wings. I mixed the Ranger Texture Paste and the 13 Arts Magic Powder to create a light fluff. I filled each of the holes half way with the mixture, then added some loose pearls from my stash. Then I added some of the 13 Arts brown microbeads to fill in the visible spots of the mixture.

Once dried, I added the alcohol inks. First, I added the patina color to the entire butterfly, then I added the browns to the pearls.

The color was pretty bold, so I toned the blue down with some white gesso. Then I added some copper wax paste to highlight the texture and give it a distressed, aged look. You can see the details in this close up below:

I decided to add this butterfly to the stand that came in the resin butterfly set. I primed the metal part and the wood circle with gesso. I added a couple of metal flowers from my stash as well, then brushed the entire piece with some of the alcohol inks over the gesso. I added some more texture paste to the middle and poured more of the brown microbeads to it so it filled the metal. I used some of the green rhinestone strand from the kit to the wood circle. Lastly, I added some copper wax paste like I did to the butterfly.

June 2018 Canvas-Cream Catcher By Heather Thompson

I wanted to make something creative with the main kit and the fussy cut elements that came with the 13 arts paper. SO I decided make a dream catcher. Not having an embroidery ring to part with, I just made my own hoop to used out of a plastic lid. It worked perfect, and it didn’t cost a thing.

Mixed Media Canvas by Ginny

Hello All!

Here is my last project made with the June Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This is my second project made with the Mixed Media Kit….. a canvas.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this project, it was so much fun!

So lets go through step by step and I can show you how the end result was achieved!

I started by painting the 5×7 inch canvas with clear gesso

I used the two brown Alcohol Inks from the Mixed Media Kit, Caramel and Latte.
I added a blue, Stonewashed and a mixative, Gold, from my stash as well.

I sprinkled droplets of the two inks, Caramel and Latte onto the canvas.

I then used some blending solution over the ink droplets to make them ‘run’ and blend together.

This solution was also from stash but is handy when working with alcohol inks.

This is what the canvas looked like after the blue and gold had been added with more blending solution.

I cut the leaves and flowers from 13 Arts paper……..

like so…..

and the flowers….

I then used the texture paste from the Mixed Media Kit with a stencil to add more detail across the layout.

To adhere the fussy cut leaves and flowers to the canvas I used a gel medium and used it underneath and over the top of the cut pieces to completely stick them and protect them on the canvas.

The butterflies from the Prima set I did slightly differently to each other. The big butterfly I painted the concave parts with the gold Mixative. the smaller one I gently rubbed the gold over the risen pattern only wit my finger.

Then using a piece of cloth I then gently rubbed in some of the blue alcohol ink around the risen borders of the butterflies in various depths of strength.

I glued these to the canas with my hot glue gun.

Next I used these Microspheres from the Mixed Media kit….

a poured/sprinkled them where I wanted them into already applied gel medium.
The medium will take a while to dry but will dry clear leaving just the microspheres.

Like this…

And I created a butterfly trail with them too!

Thus erse was cut from the paper I showed you earlier too and I inked round the edges with the gold mixative.

I popped it on a piece of cardboard to add height and glued onto the canvas.

And here is the finished canvas.

Quick & Easy Greeting cards by Phyllis

Hi Crafty Friends,  Phyllis here to share my last project for Tres Jolie using the June Card Kit.   I decided to do some simple cards!  I used the same design on both cards but different papers.

You can see step by step with pictures how I created these cards!

I began by using my paper punch and cutting some flowers out from Fabscraps paper pack.  I did this with 2 different paper patterns and then layered them.

Here is the layered flowers.  Then from my stash I added some flatback pearl beads to the center of the flower.

Next I used Kaisercraft’s Doily stamp and Kaisercraft green ink pad from the card kit,  randomly stamped on Kaisercraft’s White premium cardstock that measures 6×6.  I also used the lavender ink pad for the other card,  same process.

Once the stamping was finished I cut out some tags from Fabscraps and added some twine from my stash.

In the Fabscraps paper pack you will find some diecuts and sentiments,  I picked the window diecut and then a couple sentiments.

Then I started laying down some of the flowers and also added some leaf dicuts from the Fabscraps paper pack.

My last step was to flick some ink spray from my stash all over the card.

So get your paper punches out and create quick and easy greeting cards!

I hope you get a chance to purchase this card making kit,  so many options!

Butterfly “Canvas” by Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I’m sharing a “canvas” I made using some products from both the June scrapbook and mixed media kits. It’s not actually a canvas- I upcycled the Prima Marketing resin feather packaging which is a 4 in. X 12 in. box.

 

I flipped the box over and used the flat part. I cut a piece of the Prima Marketing Vintage Floral paper and glued it to the wood. In the closeup below, you can see some of the details- I added some stenciling using the Ranger paste from the mixed media kit in random spots on the paper, and then I added some gold wax paste over the stenciling to give it a bit of definition, and I also added some around the edges of the project.

I added some embellishments- the Prima Marketing metal ladder, and some Little Birdie roses and leaves that I dry-brushed using some white gesso.

I added some Prima Marketing rhinestone chain pieces from the mixed media kit to the leaves for added interest. I also added some wax paste to the roses.

This is one of the large resin butterflies from the mixed media kit. I painted it with a mixture of the Ranger paste and patina alcohol ink which became very light. The butterfly body is made from a couple of things from my stash0 The long swirl is a resin piece I made using a mould. In the center is a metal piece. Once glued together. I added some wax paste to highlight the texture and to give the center some definition. I finished off the butterfly by adding more of the green rhinestone chain.

Dream layout

Hello all,

I’m back with another layout today made using the June Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This layout is actually very simple, with only a little paper layering, and fussy cutting.

For this one I used the 13 Arts papers in the kit.

These are gorgeous papers from 13 Arts.

I used one of the papers as a torn background border down the centre of my layout, the edges torn as always!

I ran a piece of the beautiful lace down one side of this paper layer just slightly slotting it underneath.

And splattered the background with the Patina Ink from the Mixed media kit.

Again I did a lot of fussy cutting for this layout. I slotted them into my photo backing layers along with the lovely resin feathers.

The photo is popped up on an a piece of cardboard so I have plenty of room to slot other embellishments under. My photos are backed with a piece of matching 13 Arts Paper with torn edges (or use a distressing tool)

I added some lovely lace leaves, the shabby chic resins feathers and flowers.

I cut the word for my title out of the 13 Arts paper: All Good Things.

13 Arts: Until Dawn: In the Garden

June Sketch Layout By Phyllis

Hi Crafty Friends!  Phyllis here again to share my layout for the June Sketch Challenge at Tres Jolie!  I used 13 Arts papers to create this layout!  13 Arts papers~Frosty Morning,  In the Garden,  Cold Day and Sending Flowers.

I begin with adding White Crackle Texture paste thru a stencil,  then I ink stamped for added interest.  I wanted 13 Arts In the Garden design to show thru so I tore Frosty Morning paper and tucked In the Garden behind so it was peeking thru.

 

 

Then I got my die machine out and cut out 2 doilies for some layering,  for the doilie I used 13 Arts Cold Day paper this brought a nice pop to the design!

I then cut some photo matting from Sending Flowers and a couple tags.   I loved 13 Arts back of In the Garden it has beautiful Leaves,  I decided to fussy cut a few to add to the Prima Flowers.  And for a darker pop of color I added some Black trim from the June Kit.  One more embellishment I added was from the Prima Shabby Chic trinket pack,  it added a nice touch to this layout reminded me of a garden.  Once everything was in place I glued it all down and then added some splatters of black ink spray.

The papers in Tres Jolie June Kit are so Elegant and have a vintage feel to them,  you will love them!  There are so many options to create your memories with!  Hope you get a chance to create with this beautiful kit!  Be sure to enter your creation for the June Sketch Challenge!

Simple & Elegant Layout By Phyllis

Hello Crafty Friends Phyllis here to share another layout I created using Tres Jolie June Kit!  The papers in this kit are Gorgeous!  In my creative mind I could see wedding layouts with 13 Arts papers from the kit so for this layout that’s what stuck in mind!

I started out using 13 Arts Days & Nights paper used it for the base of my layout.  Then I took 13 Arts All Good Things paper and tore the woodgrain side and used the torn part on the otherside to lay behind the woodgrain paper.

I added the beautiful lace from the kit for nice texture and also adding elegance to the design.

I cut up my matting from 13 Arts Cold Days and Sending Flowers papers,  layered them and then added dimension recycling my packages that come in the mail.  I also added some cheesecloth from my stash behind the photo matting.

I added Prima’s Floral Sprig of flowers and Prima’s paper flowers that come in the kit.  The yellow Prima flowers were a nice pop to the layout!

With Prima’s Resin Watering can and Ladder I added a light coat of Acrylic paint just to add a little color to it.  I also added the Leaf appliques that come in the kit,  they’re so beautiful and add a nice touch to the layout!

From my stash I added some Art Stones for a touch of texture and interest!  I completed the layout by splattering some Gold and Baby Blue acrylic paint.

Here you can see the layers of paper and embellishments!

 

The papers in Tres Jolie June Kit are so Elegant and have a vintage feel to them,  you will love them!  There are so many options to create your memories with!  Hope you get a chance to create with this beautiful kit!  Be sure to enter your creation for the June Sketch Challenge!
