‘Beautiful Together’ by Ginny

It’s time for another layout  using our October Scrapbook kit today!

This kit is full of gorgeous papers from 13 Arts and Prima Marketing. For this layout I used the 13 Arts papers.

 

I loved these 13 Arts floral papers, they are so pretty. The feature background paper I chose was a wood panelled floral paper. I cut the 12×12 paper down by a 1 cm on all sides and then cut along the wood panel sections, distressed all edges and stuck these 3 panels onto my other chosen background paper.

The two title pieces are from the 12 x 12 chipboard sheet.
I embossed these with a white embossing powder.

The leaves are also from the sheet and covered with the white embossing powder.

My distressed edges on the paper I inked with a ‘Toffee’ archival ink pad.
I also used some glass glitter (diamond dust) from my stash and added it in places over the flowers and around the flower clusters to add some sparkle to the layout.

My photo I mounted on a piece of the Prima PP which was of course distressed and inked to.

The photo was then mounted on a piece of cardboard to ‘lift’ it off the layout, this left me somewhere to push my embossed chipboard leaves under. Photos always to me look better if the embellishments come from underneath the photo and some go over the photo, it blends the photo and embellishments together creating a much better effect.

On this layout I tilted the photo, I like this effect, the photo works well for this. The eye is drawn from the main focal point of Holly and I up to the rocks of Lands End in the background.
Lands End is the most southerly point in the UK at Cornwall and was from our summer holiday down there earlier this year.

Best Memories by Ginny

Hi all,

Its the start of the month with a brand new kit to share with you from Tres Jolie Kits.

This one was gorgeous and I thoroughly enjoyed creating with the gorgeous 13 Arts papers.

The colours were vibrant in places and as you will see later tin the month I have done a masculine layout from the kit too.

Here is my first layout for the month and it is also my interpretation of the sketch. It is, I admit, quite a loose interpretation but this is where I ended up in my process of following it!
I hope you like it!

Here is this months challenge sketch.

The next few photos show you my process in creating this layout.

I loved this patterned paper with the black background and was my first choice of paper to use from the kit.
I also chose the frame from the embellishments to match to the sketch design.

These are the flowers and chippy pieces I chose to use from the kit.
I have added some other flowers from my stash to create the flower overload that we all love!

I mixed some pink acrylic pink in with the texture paste to create my pink texture paste

I used this pink paste to stencil my background

My chosen photo I slipped inside the frame

I used the pink texture paste on the chipboard swirls as well. I built it up in places to create a think layer very textured layer.

The title chipboard I covered with a white embossing powder

I also added some white texture paste stencilling on the background

The photo and frame are popped up on cardboard so I could add flowers underneath the layers which creates depth and makes the layers stand out more. I built the flower layers up with the pink chippy swirls layered up with them.

Lastly I added the title chipboard pieces gluing them on top of the flowers.

Here are some close ups of the layout

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.

 

Here are some close ups of the layout followed by the products list…..

 

Products used on this layout:

* Prima Flirty Fleur Collection: Pretty Birds

‘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.

 

Here is the September scrapbook kit….

* BoBunny: Black Tie Affair: Glamour

‘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
* Prima Marketing Flowers – Flirty Fleur #634483
* Prima Marketing Flowers – Flirty Fleur #634551
* Prima Marketing Flirty Fleur Ephemera
* Nuvo Crystal Drops – Silver Lining

Products used from my stash/ previous kits:

* Coredinations Cardstock – Powder Blue
* Ayeeda Ink Splash! White
* Gesso – white
* Seed Beads
* White Lace
* Embroidery thread – cream

September Mood Board Layout by Ginny Hickmott

 

Hello!!  Ginny here with you all today!

It’s the beginning of the month again and a brand new Tres Jolie Kit!
This one is GORGEOUS!

I loved the neutral colours in the papers with a pop of the green colour coming through. I am not a fan of green but these are subtle and I loved working with them.

The mixed media kit this month is fantastic too, and my project took me back to my favourite place to be… the beach… you can see that project on the 14th…

My first project this month is a layout made with the scrapbooking kit. It is also my LO created for the mood board challenge this month too.

So lets show you my layout….

 

 

And here is the Mood Board for this month challenge.

 

I hava a photo process for you, so here goes….

This LO had a mixed media background, I have used a lot of paint in layers and dried each application of paint as I have gone along with a heat tool. The paint is from my stash and not included in the kit.

I started by painting the background paper with clear gesso. this primes the paper and makes it much more resistant to the use of mixed media and ‘wet’ products to help keep the paper from buckling and being misshapen. Dry with a heat tool.
I then started with my first paint, the DA Mountain Meadow.
There is no neat way to do this… when I say I splat the paper with a loaded paint brush that is exactly what I do! Just make sure your working area is clear of anything you do not want covered in paint!
After splatting the paint on I then brushed it over the centre of the paper a little as in the photo below.
Dry with heat tool.

Next is the gesso layer… white.
I watered the gesso down a bit, 1/3 water to 2/3 gesso, this just makes it splat/flick easier and gives a slightly more transparent coverage….

Again then brush the gesso to cover the centre of the paper….dry with heat tool.

 

Next the second green, the Peppermint Tea, love that name!
Each application of paint ends up covering a smaller space so you can still see the previous colours. Dry.

 

Now I added the grey paint and dried again

 

The next step is the stencilling. This stencil was in the Prima Flirty Fleur mixed pack of flowers, ephemera and stencil.
Using a texture paste add random patches of detail over the painted area keeping it mainly to the outside edges of the paint so I still shows after the photo has been added to the centre.

Paint the creative embellishment chipboard piece with gesso. This may need a couple of coats depending on the coverage you want.

 

Dry the gesso and then using the Nuvo Crystal drops ‘draw’ along all the flourishes to create a 3d effect Allow to dry naturally.

 

 

I decided to add some stamping too. I chose a stamp from my stash and used Black Soot Distress Ink to stamp the details around the outside area of the paint.

Now adhere the photo to the layout. I backed my photo with cardboard to lift it off the background paper. I then glued the chipboard piece over the top of the photo.

I chose some small cutouts from the Prima Papers and cut them into two….

And pushed them into the layers on opposite sides of the photo/chippy.

Now arrange the flowers, slotting some underneath the chippy and some on top.
I put one cluster at the bottom left ‘corner’ and then the top right ‘opposite corner’.

The second cluster, to balance the design of the LO.

Last little details, add one of the Resin Butterflies on top of the chipboard.

And lastly add some of the black glitter gems.

Here are some close ups at different angles to show you the layers.

‘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!

 

Here are some close ups of the layout:

This is Me- Sketch Layout by Ginny

Hi all, today I’m sharing my layout I created based on this months challenge sketch.
Kim has created another lovely sketch which fits the August kit perfectly.

I just loved the gorgeous papers in the kit this month, some soft and then some bright and bold.
A lot of these papers were perfect for fussy cutting, creating more elements to use on your layouts and to help create depth.
As usual the kit has been put together with perfectly coordinated embellishments there are flowers rom 48 & Market and Prima. I nice selection of chippies and resin to feature on your pages.
What I love about these kits is the amount of paper you get! If like me you like layers and lots of them then these kits are perfect with lots of coordinated papers included.

So on to my sketch layout. This layout I used the Santorini papers but the softer sides. I kept it quite pink, soft and girlie.

This is the sketch. A lovely sketch open to interpretation but perfect with this kit.

Now I will show you a few close ups and a few notes on what I did with some items from the kit.
This month I have tried very hard to only use August kit products, with only the use of inks, gesso and embossing powders added. We will see how well I did at this as the month goes on! LOL

The music score chipboard piece I cut in half and embossed with a white embossing powder. I then slotted it into my torn paper layers.

We had a lovely pack of gems in some gorgeous colours. The pink ones were perfect for this page. I used them in groups of 3 around the layout. I always use the ‘rule of 3’, things just seem more balanced this way!

I used several different coordinated papers and tore them to get my rough shabby edges, I am not very good with cut edges!
I have then layered them up, showing a little bit of each paper from underneath the one on top.
I then layered some of the beautiful white flower lace in these paper layers as well. It looks so feminine and soft.

I did some faux stitching on this layout with a Distress Marker pen, oopps from my stash..
I drew the dashes around several edges of my paper layers, this is another very easy way to add a little detail to your layouts and perfect if you dont have a sowing machine or cant bare to actually sow on your papers!!

I used a combination of the 49 & Market flower, which are the bigger pink ones and then some smaller Prima flowers. You can see other places I have added the flower lace too.
I also used a punch in odd random places on the edge of my layers to add a little more detail.

Products used on this layout:

From the kit:

* Prima: Santorin Collection: Enjoying the Sun
*Prima: Santorini Collection: Mix & Match
*Prima: Santorini Collection: Summer is around the Corner
* Creative Embellishments: Chipboard: Music Score

Friends layout with Ginny

Hello all,

It’s my last project of the month using the Tres Jolie July kit.

I have really enjoyed creating with this kit, I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the designs created by our DT.

My layout this time is based around a central design. It is a simple layout using a texture base stencilled background and some embellishments framing the photo.

I used one of the plain dotty papers for a background paper.

My focal background paper I trimmed 1cm off on two sides to reduce it enough in size to see a border of the dotty paper when it is mounted on it.
I punched the edge in random places around the paper and then distressed the edges.

I chose a lovely flourish stencil (not sure of the brand of this one from my stash) and designed the stencilling so that when I add the central design some of the stencilling will show out from under the edges.

My photo is layered on a neutral patterned paper with the doilies and overlapped on the chipboard piece that has been heat embossed with a white embossing powder.

I then added the flowers, leaves, badges, some metals and Nuvo drops around the layout to finish it.

Here are some close ups of the finished layout.

I again used some fussy cut butterflies cut from that gorgeous paper full of them!

The title was a chippie from my stash but was perfect for this layout so I had to use it. It is just simply covered with a couple coats of white gesso.

Everything on this layout is from the July Scrapbook Kit except the metal cogs (which are from the Mixed Media Kit) and the chippy title. The texture paste is from the June Mixed Media kit.#
