‘Mum’ fussy cut layout by Ginny

Hello crafty peeps!

This is my last project for this month using the August kit for Tres Jolie Kit Club!

I have really enjoyed creating with this kit. The papers were lovely and I enjoyed all the fussy cutting that I was able to do with them.
This layout is kind of a double page to go with my previous layout earlier in the month which can be found on this link http://shabbypapers.blogspot.com/2018/08/mintay-layout-for-tres-jolie-kits.html
I used the same Mintay papers but swopped the colours from pink with blue highlights on the other layout to Blue with pink highlights on this one. I also used the same torn edged border but turned it to vertical instead of horizontal. The same flowers/colours/designs were copied onto this layout and obviously a double page about my Mum as she is in both photos.
These photos were taken as we sat in the garden talking on a lovely summers day a couple of months ago.
Here it is….

I have a photo step by step process for you to follow to see how I created this layout.

I used 4 mists in total. The first three colours I splattered using the nozzle removed from the bottle and shaking the nozzle and tube over the paper and the 4th, the blue chalk mist I sprayed normally to get more coverage. I tipped the paper up vertically after spraying to get the mist to run down the paper.

After drying I applied some texture paste with a stencil.

I inked the torn edges of the feature border paper and layered the blue lace from the kit underneath one side.

I added a strip of another contrasting paper under the other side, also torn and inked.

My photo I layered on…. yes you’ve guessed it, a torn paper layer and inked the edges.

I chose 4 journal cards, distressed the edges and inked

And then arranged them around my photo using double sided tape.

I then cut some fussy cutting out of the 12×12 Mintay papers and inked the edges.

I backed these with a small piece of cardboard to lift them of the papers and journal cards to add some depth to the design.

These were then slotted into my photo and journal card layers.

This arrangement was then stuck onto the background papers again with some cardboard behind it to lift of the background papers.
I added a fussy cut floral piece to the top right corner of the photo again backed with cardboard.

Next came the flower cluster….. a simple one with not too many flowers.

Add two smaller blue flowers to the main structure of the feature flower and the 2 leaves.

And then fill in with the smaller flowers.

I then finished off by adding some of he very pretty dazzler gems.

Voila!

Mixed Media Layout By Heather Thompson

 

Hi everyone, Heather here today to share a mixed media layout made with the Tres Jolie Main Kits and some elements from the Mixed Media Kit.

While trying to finish up some much needed holiday albums, I picked a photo of us visiting the the Wreck of 10 Sails. A spot where 10 British Ships en-route to the United States all wrecked on the reefs of the Cayman’s back in 1794.

TJ Layout August 2018

Such simple moments like these do make good memories, it was such a scenic view and the history behind the reef was just amazing.

This layout was a bit more simple for  me, I see layouts that are very elegant with very minimal layers and I wonder if I can try it am actually make something worth showing. So I have been experimenting with a ton less layers than I am used to.

I started with the mixed media kit on the background using various embossing powders. The powders I used were from Lindy’s;

I made a video if you want to follow along with the creative process.

Here are a few close ups

August Sketch Layout with Rae

Hello, friends!

This month our design team will be sharing their projects made with the August scrapbooking, card, and mixed media kits.

Today I’m sharing a project that I made using the August scrapbooking kit along with this beautiful sketch designed by owner, Kim Heard:

Here’s my take on it:

I used papers from both collections from the kit: the Prima Marketing Santorini paper is the main paper, and I ripped a piece of the blue Mintay 7th Heaven paper. The rest of the layers are a combination of both lines.

I cut the piece of musical notes chipboard into two parts so it would be long enough to flow across the page under the cluster. I kept the treatment simple by adding some rose gold wax paste from my stash.

I added many flowers, all from the kit. And, under the flowers I added the Prima Marketing Say it in Crystals. To add elements from the sketch, I used a doily die with printer paper, and some chipboard flourishes.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog this Saturday! I hope you can join us for the sketch challenge this month! Here’s the link to where you can post your projects: CHALLENGE ALBUM. We can’t wait to see what you create!
