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!

June Sketch Layout with Ginny

Hello everyone!

Ginny here with you today, to share with you my sketch layout for the challenge this month here at Tres Jolie!

Here is the sketch:

 

Dont you agree it’s a gorgeous sketch to get the inspiration going? Carry on reading further down this blog post for details on how you can enter this months challenge.

Here is my interpretation of the sketch

Photo Tutorial

I have done a step by step photo tutorial of my process making this layout.

I chose my backing papers, this one – Misty Foils.

and this one – The Good news.

After trimming 1cm off from round all sides of the paper, I then heavily distressed it – to the point some of you will think I’ve torn it!

Layer this paper up on top of the ‘The Good News’ paper

I cut some small pieces of the lace, about 1 1/2″ and slotted them into the bigger gaps/tears round the edges of the top background paper. This is a cheat, it makes it look like there is a border of lace in between the background papers but saves you on the amount of lace used so you loads more lace for another project!

I used the chipboard piece, I painted it first with gesso and then when dry I heat embossed it with a white and silver embossing powder.

I placed my photo through the chipboard oval and glued it on the layout.

I cut a piece of the beautiful lace to fit the length of my top background paper and glued into position. I splatted the background with some drops of one of the alcohol inks from the Mixed Media kit.

I added a doily behind the photo and chipboard on the left.

I then used the pack of gorgeous pink paper roses ( I loved the leaves in this too)

I made an arrangement round the bottom left side of the photo/frame…

and a smaller one round the top right of the photo/frame

I bent the curled wires into a rounded shape

and added them into the flower clusters

I love these Shabby Chic Garden Treasures and used the ladder and the watering can in this layout.

I added the watering can to the left side of the layout, tucking it underneath some of the leaves.

Now for the little details… the microspheres I dropped into some gel medium dotted around the layout

I  tucked in some dusky red twine tied into bows into the flower clusters.

Lastly as sometimes happens when I design a page I start of not using texture paste and stencils and then by the end I decide I want to use it! This was one of those layouts, so at this point I then added patches of stencilling around the design.

Last thing on the layout was some random stamping with black distress ink. I think it just adds a bit more detail and depth to the background of the layout and makes the layout ‘pop’ .

And voila! a finished layout.

Fancy having a go yourself with the sketch?
