15th Anniversary from Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!! December kit is here and I am super excited to share my creations for this month.  December is a special month for us because first of all, my husband and I met in December, there is Christmas of course AND my daughter was born in December.

This background paper reminded me of our wedding because we got married in the Winter but also because my dress and the groom’s accessories had light blue in them.  This was the perfect kit for Winter photos :). We will celebrate our 15th Anniversary in January so why not do a layout about that day 🙂

This is a pretty simple layout where I did not use a lot of mediums except some splashes of White Gesso on the background and some gel to fix the snow and the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit.

I used different layers of paper behind the photo and lots of Pearls.  I used the Holly and Berry Border from Creative Embellishments that I painted White.  I just love the little Shovel !!!

I loved adding the Art Sugar everywhere, I think it adds great texture and color to the layout.

November kit 4th reveal by Annie Carignan

 

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today my fourth project for this month.  The focus on this layout is the beautiful resin frame from Prima which is included in the Mixed Media kit.

I coated some clear Gesso on this White 12×12 cardstock. Then I used stencil from the mixed media and Modeling Paste.  I stamped the background with ABStudio stamp and put some color with aquarelle paint from my stash.

I cut different peaces of flowers, leaves and clocks from what I had left over from the scrapbook kit and added them under the photo as well as peaces of chipboard that I painted white.

I used some of the Finnabair glaze on the frame and art stones to create texture.

Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone Kim here, today I am sharing my project I made with with Mixed Media Kit. If you don’t know about our mixed media kits, let me tell you about them. The kit is filled with not only mediums, but a project so you can use our kits right out of the box.

Here is our November Mixed Media kit. It is filled with the new Icing paste medium from Prima.  It also includes 3 sizes of embroidery hoops and canvas. You can create your own mixed media hoops. You can subscribe to our kits here.

Check out the kit:

Here is what I created using the kit:

How about some close ups:

Lets talk about the background first. After I put the canvas on the hoops and decided on which side I wanted to work on, I took the stencil and the icing paste paste to make the background. Once that was done, I began deciding how I wanted to arrange my hoops.

Once I had the arrangement set up I glued my hoops together. While the hoops were drying, I heat embossed my chipboard piece.

I then decided to add a doily behind my frame before I attached it. I just wanted something peeking out behind it.

Now it was time to start embellishing my hoops. I moved my flowers all around until I was happy with the groupings. I made sure I used some dimensional tape under some flowers so they pop off the project. Plus it makes it easier to tuck bits and pieces under them.

After all the big embellishment were done, I started adding all the little details that really make your project. I used a butterfly and some floral ribbon from my stash. The sentiments are also from my stash.

Hope you liked my little explanation of my Mixed Media Monday project.

We still have some kits available, so stop by here and subscribe. We also have individual kits for sale here. Also, Our Black Friday sale is still going on. You can try our past kits for 40% off. Here is the link to check out what’s still available

Mixed Media Kit Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our November Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has new Prima icing paste, as well as art stones and a beautiful flourish stencil. There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three embroidery hoops, some canvas fabric, and some beautiful embellishments: a Prima resin frame and flowers, and some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.

You may have seen some of the projects made with some of these items. Today I am sharing the project that I made using this kit.

I started this project by cutting the canvas and adding them to the embroidery hoops, then crudely painted the embroidery hoops and canvas with white gesso. Then I mixed up some of the Prima icing paste with water and gave the hoops another wash, leaving the canvas white.

On the larger two hoops I added some stenciling with the Prima flourish stencil. Then I painted over the stenciling with white gesso and before it dried, I wiped it off to give a faded look to the stenciling, which you can see in the closeup below.

Once dry, I glued the hoops together. I reversed the smallest one and place the resin frame on it to create a shallow shadow box effect. I added a clock cut out from the scrapbook kit, then added some lace and clock charm from my stash, as well as some small flowers.

I added painted the flourish chipboard with gesso and light green paint and cut the pieces to fit my design. I added flowers to the largest two hoops. Some of the smaller flowers are from my stash. I added some whitewashing with diluted gesso to blend them into the project.

On the largest hoop I added some papers from my stash (Prima Love Story).

And, I also added a chipboard title from my stash. Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Check out the blog this week for the last of the design team’s November projects!

AND, we are having a Black Friday Sale RIGHT NOW! Check it out!

“Faire des folies” with Annie Carignan

Hello again everyone !

I am sharing today another layout that I made with beautiful November Scrapbook Kit where we had ABStudio gorgeous products, 49 and Market and Prima flowers along with great chipboards from Creative Embellishments.

For this layout I wanted to work with the feathers, which are not something I normally use so this was a little bit of a challenge for me because I never know where to put them !  So I had this idea of using all of them so they would be the focus of my page.

First thing I did was  gesso the background, then I cut little peaces of paper for the top and the bottom that I adhered making a triangle directed to the center and reaching the bottom. I used AB Studio stencil with Paste.  I took the feathers and adhered them from the top to the center, and from the bottom to the center also. I painted them with white gesso.  I put some  Icing Paste to give color just a little and added   the trim lace on top and bottom.  I finished by adding flowers, tags, bird and Art Stones.

Here are some close-ups :

November Moodboard by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !! Have you seen this month’s Moodboard ? It is gorgeous and I created a layout with the Mixed Media kit and parts of the Scrapbook kit.

It took me a while to decide how I was going to place my 3 circles (Embroidery Hoops) Here is how it ended up.  I painted all 3 with White Gesso and used AB Studio’s stencil from the Scrapbook kit on the surface.  I mixed Finnabair’s Icing Paste with water and put some on the 3 circles. I then added some texture with AB Studio’s rubber stamp.  When everything was done I felt it needed something more, that is why I put the circles on a background paper where I used the Prima stencil with the Icing Paste.

Here you can see I painted the metal gears and the key chipboard with White Gesso and added beautiful flowers.  I finished off with Arts Stones. The small white words and the round title are from my stash.

Hello everyone ! so happy to share new creations with brand new November kit ! Today I am sharing a layout made with the Scrapbook kit and a few things from the MM kit.   This paper is so beautiful with the 2 big butterflies that I didn’t want to hide them.  That is why I tried to keep it simple.  On the background I used the stamp from AB Studio and painted them with Watercolor from my stash.  I chose colors that matched my photo.  The die cut flowers you see behind the photo were made with a friend’s die cut I tried on my scrapbook weekend. I cut the tag from one of the AB Studio papers.  I added some flowers and Art Stones.

‘Roses’ canvas by Ginny

Welcome to my second project of the month for Tres Jolie October Kit.

Today I thought I would share with you my Mixed Media Kit Project.

This month we had a lovely large square canvas and the gorgeous watercolours from Prima. What a treat to be able to create with these!

 

Here is the Mixed Media Kit

 

 

And so lets look at a few photos of how I created this canvas.

 

 

I only used a limited amount of colours from the Metallic Accents set for this canvas. I kept to all the pinks and paler colours through to the grey.
With a wide 3/4 inch paint brush I painted on the various colours one at a time in random spots over the background of the canvas, letting them blend and run together to create a marbled effect. Later I used a smaller brush to add some paint splats.

 

 

The water colour paint are so easy to use. I start them off with a spray of water to activate them and use them from the individual pots, I also use the palette tray in the lid, to blend some of the colours together and to add more water to get a really watery mixture going for a ‘wash’.

 

 

The chipboard pieces were in the scrapbook kit. These I simply covered with a white embossing powder.

 

 

I used the journal card sheet, cut them all up individually, distressed the edges and backed them onto a piece of light 12×12 paper from the scrapbook kit and distressed those too.

 

 

I fussy cut these flower clusters out from one of the 13 Arts papers

 

 

I splatted some of the metallic paint on the background

 

 

Now to layer up the design. I used some cardboard behind some of the journal cards to ‘lift’ them up. This enabled me to slot under the chipboard pieces.

 

 

Add the fussy cut floral pieces

 

 

Next came the flowers, again I only used the pink flowers from the selection in the mixed media kit.

 

I used one of the silver metal frames from the scrapbook kit and added a cut piece of patterned paper to the inside. I then covered the paper with a thick layer of crackle glaze. This was slid into the card layers too.

 

Lastly I then splattered the paler metallic paint over the entire canvas and tipped the edges of the flowers with the metallic paint too.

 

 

Here are some close ups of the finished canvas….
