Rattan Wreath with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing my project I made with the mixed media kit, featuring this rattan heart wreath and Prima Marketing liquid watercolors.

Here’s what I came up with:

I started out with using the blue (Bora Bora) watercolor on the wreath. I added a few drops to a spray bottle and added some water. I let each layer dry, and I increasingly added more of the watercolor to get varying shades of blue. Then, I added some of splats of the black watercolor. Lastly, I added some of the wax paste, and some lights from my stash.

Next I added a piece of chipboard from my stash. I painted it with white gesso, then again with the red watercolor. Once dry, I added some clear embossing powder, then added some more of the wax paste from the kit.

I also added some wax paste to a few of the flowers for a frosty look. Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

February Scrapbook Kit layout reveal by Annie

Hello everyone ! First of all : Happy Valentine’s Day !!!!  I thought this layout was perfect for the occasion ! It was made with the Scrapbook Kit.

I decided to make this layout more traditional with lots of details from the kit.  It was pretty simple to make.

The 1st thing I did was cutting different papers into 3×3.  I put a small peace of chipboard under all the peaces to create dimension.  After that I let my inspiration do all the rest.  I placed different peaces of Ephemera, feathers, flowers, chipboards that I painted Pink, and also the Black Resin peaces.  Lastly, I splashed some Black spray on the surface.

Here are some close-ups :

Mixed Media Monday (using the Tag Kit)

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing a mixed media canvas I created using the tag kit. I really stepped outside of my comfort zone with this kit.

This month’s card kit features the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and tags. Here is the kit:

 

So, I have never worked with these before. However, they are great for my niece. I created a canvas for her room. Here is my canvas:

I used the mermaid doll for the canvas. For the mixed media, I used items from past mixed media kits. I used the texture paste, watercolors and seashells from past Tres Jolie Kits (they can be found here).

Here are some close ups of the canvas:

I have never used watercolors on wood, so I learned a few things. Use less water to prevent color bleed. I got a bit of it, but hey I can live with it.  For the skin tone, I used my water color pencils. I think it turned out pretty decent for my first time.

The saying behind the frame is a 3×4 card from the Prima Zella Teal line (from my stash). The color was perfect for this.

For the background, I used the rust effect paste from a past kit in Fantasy. I used the powder blue to cover the canvas, then filled in with the purple and turquoise until I was happy.

The flowers and cheesecloth are from my stash. I filled in the floral cluster with some seashells and the other wooden accessories that came with the doll. I added a few melange pebbles, then lightly dusted over the flowers with the purple rust effects paint and called it done.

“Stunning” Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today I am sharing a layout I made using the February scrapbook kit. I used some of the Prima Marketing Midnight Garden papers for this layout, I started out by ripping the bottom paper and gluing it to the reddish paper, then I added some stenciling with white crackle paste.

I lined the edges of the ripped paper with flowers. Some of the flowers are from my stash, from the Midnight Garden collection. In the closeup below, you can see the metal feather that came in the kit- I added gold and black embossing powder to it to match the other embossed elements.

Here’s a closeup of the flowers and flourish that I also added some silver ans black embossing powders to.

I matted the photo with other papers from the kit. The chipboard circle is from my stash. I used gold embossing powder for contrast with the silver jewels and crown in the picture. I added some of the Prima Marketing black resin pieces to the picture as well for added interest.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

February Mixed Media Project by Annie

Hello everyone !!! I am always excited to present new projects, new kits !! This month’s Mixed Media Kit has a beautiful Rattan Heart, concentrated Watercolor, flowers, chipboard and Wax from Finnabair.

The Rattan Heart was White originally but I decided to play with the Watercolors a little bit.  I started to use the Black and then I had the idea of mixing the Red with the Bora Bora color.  It became a beautiful Purple.

 

I used the same color to paint the chipboard.  I glued the flowers on the Heart and put White Gesso and some black Watercolor in the middle of the flowers.  To finish, I put some Wax on the chipboard and the Heart.
