Dinosaur Egg Layout by Ginny

Hello everyone!

This is my last project of the month using the September Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit.
This is quite a fun layout, its still very much shabby chic in style but has a fun edge to it with the photo and words.
Holly was on her Brownie Holiday and we were visiting a dinosaur park in the Isle of Wight. These eggs the children could get into as part of the interactive experience for them… all great fun and a great photo opportunity!

Here is a photo process tutorial showing you how I created this layout…..

 

I used three 12×12 background papers. The bottom one I kept at 12x12in, the next two I trimmed so they were a cm smaller on all sides then the one underneath. They were all heavily distressed and shabby rips torn into the sides in places.
My photo is layered on a piece of patterned paper also with torn edges. At this point I hadn’t stuck the photo down.

Having decided where my photo was going I added some texture paste and stencilling in the same area so that the stencilling shows around my photo.

I then added the photo and started to build up with a journal note cut from the 12×12 papers and some of the ephemera flower pieces. These are really pretty and eye catching with the foils on them, they really catch the light.

Next I added the flowers, a couple of ‘word’ ephemera and some resin dragonflies.

The green pearl strip I cut up into pieces and added them to my flower clusters wit some of the single pearls.

I added some detail to the dragonflies

with the Silver Nuvo Crystal.

And lastly splashed over some watered down gesso to finish.

‘A Fun Ride’ layout with Ginny

Hi everyone, Ginny here with you today.
I’m back on the Tres Jolie blog again with this layout created with the September kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club.
This layout used loads of layers to create a really detailed deep effect with a mixed media background.

Here are some close up photos with a few details of the layout.

 

The mixed media background is acrylic paint brushed over the centre of the background paper.
I used white texture paste with the stencil and added it to show out around the sides of the layered papers in the centre.

I used a selection of the papers from the kit to create my paper layers. I used various colours that contrast each other and yes, as usual they all have torn edges. I layered them up off set against each other.

I used some Splash! Ink splattered in the background and added the cute peg with a piece out of the ephemera glued onto it. I love the modern effect that some of the ephemera pieces give the layout against the shabby chic style.

The frame was with one of the Prima flower sets and was the perfect size to work well with my photo.

I added some of the black glitter gems and some enamel drops too.
The blue roses I toned down a little by gently brushing them with gesso to get a softer colour to them.

I added one of the cute resin peices and chose the bee to sit in my flower cluster.

Just a note, when layering up paper layers, layer some up with foam pads or cardboard in-between and some without, this adds an irregularity that gives a really good look and also spaces to slide embellishments in-between.

‘Too Cute’ layout by Ginny

Hello everyone! Ginny here with you today!

Today I am sharing another layout made with the September kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. This one is made with the Bobunny papers in the kit.
I really enjoyed making this one, it came together really quickly and i loved these photos of my DS from what seems a very long time ago! He is now a teenager!

Here are some close ups with some details for you……

 

I created layers with the papers, adding a floral details paper to the more neutral black background paper. All paper layers had torn edges. I highlighted the pale blues by using a coordinating piece of cardstock in the layers to make the colours ‘pop’.

I used the ephemera tags and journal cards to add more layers. I cut them in half and then slotted the top half of the cards I the top of the layers and the bottom of the cards into the bottom of the layers. This makes your ephemera go further and balances the design. I layered a lovely piece of lace into my paper layers too.

I scrumped up some cream embroidery thread behind my flower embellishments to add a different effect. The chipboard piece I simply painted with gesso and then dropped some of the blue pigment in places along it to add a little coloured detail to it. Whilst this was all still wet I dropped some colour coordinated seed beads on to it to finish off.

I used some Splash! white ink splattered in the background and added some of the pearls.

Products used from the kit:

* Bobunny Black Tie Affair – Lace
* Bobunny Black Tie Affair – Black tie Affair
* Prima Marketing Flirty Fleur – Little Notes
* Prima Marketing Say it in Pearls – strip green -#530518
* Creative Embellishments chipboard – Flourish Border
