September Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the September Mixed Media kit. I also have a video (after lots of technical difficulties)to share of the process.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of mediums from 13@rts, including their rust effect powder and reagent.  Plus we have some Libndy’s squirts to round everything off. Also included is are some metals and a canvas. Everything needed to create an altered mixed media canvas.

Here is the kit:

This canvas was really messy and a lot of fun to create using the kit mediums.

Here is my project:

 

 

 

Here is the video process on how I created this:

The Good Life by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone! I am back again with another layout made with beautiful September kit.   There are probably some kits available in the shop ! See link at the end of the post for more details.

OK, so for this one I started with a coat of Gesso because I knew I was going to add colors so you have to put on Clear Gesso if you want to put any kind of Medium, if not the paper will just take all of it in and it will not give good results.

I love the flowers on this paper and I decided I was going to use the Lindy’s spray kind of like a watercolor.  I poured some on a peace of plastic and added a little bit of water and started to paint the flowers on the paper.

I used the stamp and the embossing powder from the Cards, Tags and more kit (which is probably still available in the shop) on the background, it gives a great texture look !

I used the chipboard that I embossed and some of the papers behind the photo,   cut out some words and ephemeras I found on different papers of the kit.

To finish off I used some flowers and embellishments.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

 

I hope you liked this layout and please share your work with us on the Facebook Page ! see link below 🙂

Carpe Diem by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here is a new layout with September Scrapbook Kit.

Yes ! another beach layout !

For this background I used a little bit of Clear Gesso before I put Modeling Paste with a stencil from my stash.  I used the stamp all around the layout. I used the spray from the kit on the chipboard also included in the kit.  I cut it in half so i could use it on top and bottom of my photo.  I used flowers and embellishments from the kit and some from my stash too, I wanted Blue on this layout to go with the paper, the chipboard and the photo.

 

 

 

 

thanks for looking !

Artist Trading Coins using the September Cards, Tags and More Kit

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers from Dress my Craft along with a tag album and some chipboardartist trading coins.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a 6×6  paper pad to create a beautiful tag album, plus some ATC. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are 2 sets of artist trading coins I created. I don’t create a lot of these, but I love how they turned out:

How about a close up:

These were a fun, quick project to create. I loved that I could use 1 6×6 sheet of paper for both coins.

The chipboard swirls are from my stash. I used the embossing powder from the kit on them. I used some Tim Holtz chit chat phrases that I cut up and inked, added a few pearls and flowers, DONE!

 

Here is the second set:

And a close up:

 

I used the same formula to create this set. One sheet of paper, some chipboard, chit chat phrase and flowers. I think these have a more festive look to them. It wasn’t my intention, I’m not ready for the cold weather that comes with the Holidays.

 

Today’s tip: If you need to make a large quantity of a project, make it simple and follow the same formula. Just change your embellishments. It will make life much simpler.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Every Story (Mood Board Challenge)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board with a twist challenge.

So what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board, with a twist. What is the twist you might ask? Well, we decided to use a specific color palette to go along with the images we chose. So you have more to be inspired by.

Doesn’t this get your mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by the pattern the peeling paint makes, plus some of the colors.  I had lots of fun creating this layout.

This is a photo of dh and I out for dinner on Mother’s Day.

How about some close-ups.

I did some random stamping in the background. Plus I added a bit of the mist that comes in the kit.

 

I embossed the chipboard with some Lindy’s embossing powder. The butterfly is from my stash.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

Place your entries in the September 2019 Challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe Facebook page. All are welcome to enter, however we’d love to see what you do with our kits.

This challenge ends on September 30th, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST.
