November Mixed Media Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our November Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has these amazing metal wings to alter as the project.

There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three embroidery hoops, some canvas fabric, and some beautiful embellishments: a Prima resin frame and flowers, and some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.

 

Let’s look at some of the projects created with this kit. First up is Crystal:

Next up is Michelle:

Now here is my project:

I love how we all started with the same materials, but ended up with totally different looks.If you want to see how Crystal and Michelle created their projects, just head over to our Youtube channel for a step by step video.

Because our kits are packed with full size products, there are always leftover after you complete your project. Let’s look at what Michelle and Crystal created with their leftovers:

Michelle used some leftover crackle paste and inka gold to alter this pumpkin.

Crystal used her wooden heart to be the anchor for another project. I also spy some kit flowers, inka gold, glitter and mica mist.That cute title came from a past kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Make sure you come back, we are revealing our December kit very soon.

Use Your Wings Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone, Kim here sharing my Mixed Media project created with the November Mixed Media kit.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of different mediums. We have  some crackle paste, some dry glitter, mica powder and some inka gold. Also included is are some flowers to alter. Everything needed to alter the metal wings included in the kit.

Here is the kit:

These wings were so fun to create with.

Here is my project:

I started with the wooden heart in the kit. I gave it a nice heavy coat of the crackle paste and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I wiped the high points with the inka gold, then gave it a spritz with mist I made from the mica powder.

For the wings, I went over the high points with the inka gold. The I added glue to the tips and sprinkled them with the dry glitter for some shimmer.

For the flowers, I took a few of the script ones and swiped them with the inka gold. Then I used the mist and sprayed all the flowers for a good dose of shimmer. It’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but they really shine in person. The blue flowers are from the scrapbook kit. They added just the right punch of color. The wings, I mad from a mold and just sprayed them with the mist.

Once all that was done, I just put it all together. Once I got the vision in my heard as what I wanted to do, this came together pretty quickly (except for drying time, LOL).

Remember to stay tuned to the blog  for more inspiration using the our kits. We will be revealing the December kit soon.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November Mood Board

DSC_0001-FRAMED

For me a “scrapbooking kit” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to be making scrapbook pages! Sometimes I just can’t resist using (almost) everything up in one project, like the junk journal I made for this month mood board!

November Tres Jolie Kits – Mixed Media–Pumpkin Stack

Hello everyone! I’m up on the blog today sharing my pumpkin stack that I created as one of my Guest Design Team projects for Tres Jolie Kits, using the November Mixed Media Kit!

27-Framed

I loved the turquoise, Inka-Gold paint from Viva Décor that came in this months kit! It has a nice, smooth paste-like consistency, that can be put on with your finger or a brush straight from the container! Or, you can do as I did, and add some to a misting bottle with some of the Prima® Silver Mica Powder, also found in the November kit, and make your own shimmer-y, glimmer-y mist! I used my homemade mist on the flowers.


Watch me here:


41-Framed

One of my favorite product types in the mixed media world is any type of “crackle” product, so I was more than happy to see the bottle of DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint in the November kit, and I couldn’t help but put a nice thick layer on my pumpkin stack after coating it with some clear gesso.

36-Framed

After my crackle paint dried I added some of the turquoise paint, trying to create an Ombre effect on the pumpkins. I then used a mesh/net bag (that the little pumpkins came in) to wrap the stack, using some jute twine at each layer.

29-Framed

I let my homemade mist soak into my flowers some, then, after they were dry, I used some gel medium to attach them to the pumpkin stack.

30-Framed 31-Framed

28-Framed

For the finishing touches I added some sisel fibers for some added texture, and finished them off by brushing on some Glossy Accents and a sprinkling of the glitter from this months kit!

Autumn Tag and Wall Hanging

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a couple of projects I  created with the November cards, tags and more kit. The papers from Ciao Bella in this kit have the best Autumn colors. It was a lot of fun creating these projects.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here are the projects I created with it:

I created a large tag and also a wall hanging. They can be given as 1 gift or separate gifts, I haven’t decided yet.

For the wall hanging, I took the 5×7 piece of chipboard from the kit and used it as my base. I then covered that with paper and inked the edges using green ink from last months kit.

After that I started building my layers with the cut outs from the A4 paper in the kit. There were so many to choose from. I added flowers and leaves(from the kit) and chipboard (from the kit) in between my layers.  I embossed the chipboard with a bit of orange and green embossing powder.

The title is also from the A4 cutout sheet. There are a lot of Autumn sayings on the sheets.

For my tags, I basically did the same thing. I used an older G45 large tag as a template and cut my tag from the 12×12 paper.

Again, I used chipboard (from the kit) and flowers (from my stash) to place in between the layers. I also added a piece of lace (from a past kit) under a layer.

These 2 projects were easy and fun to make

Altered Wooden Box with Cards, Tags & Address Book/Journal

Hello crafty friends!!! This month I’m back with a super adorable project that I created using the Tres Jolie Scrapbook Kit  .  This project is for this months Mood Board Challenge. I decided to alter a wooden box. This box measures 8×8. I do plan to add more cards, envelopes, & tags. I just wanted to create just a few to show something and not an empty box haha!!

 

IMG_3219

 

      

 

In this project I was inspired by Frank Garcia a designer for Prima Marketing. He did a similar design for a mini album parcel that I subscribe to. I just added all of the flowers and other small elements.  I took the wooden box that came with this kit, note these weren’t the papers for that parcel.

     

I really enjoyed altering this box. I made some 3×3 cards with envelopes , tags that I had in my stash, I added some papers from the collection to them, they came with some twine so I added that to the box, I also altered a small hardcover notepad. I couldn’t find a smaller notepad at the time and of course after I altered this one I came across smaller ones that I had in my hoard. No worries this one came out nice. This can be used as an address book or just a journal.

IMG_2251

I do hope that you were inspired to create something like this!! If you would like to see a tutorial on this please check out my blog @ Jeannie In A Bottle Blog  These sorts of projects make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, keepsakes, etc. I do hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family as I will do with mine, although my daughter and her family will be spending it with her other family but my sons will be here and I’m not too upset cuz I get to have her for Christmas . Talk to you all soon ~Hugs~ Jeanne

Sounds of Autumn Interactive Cards

 

Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here again sharing a couple of interactive cards that I created using the beautiful papers from the Cards, Tags,  & more,

This collection was my 1st one that I’ve had the opportunity to work with and I must say that out of all of what I used I was able to make a variety of multiple projects plus I also have a lot left over for future projects!

             

I really loved the cut outs and tags the A4 collection packet. With these I got the idea to make them interactive. The card on the left has the sentiment that translates the Italian words into, ” Autumn is the second spring when each leaf is a flower”, and the one on the right says ” Among all the leaves of autumn, I can recognize the only one that, instead of falling, has tried to fly”.

        

I began by cutting one of the 12×12 kraft card stock that came in the Cards, Tags,  & more  November kit. I chose to make my cards 5×7 & 4 1/4 X 5, so I cut my card stock , one at 10×7 and the other 8 1/2 X 5 and scored it which my martha stewert scoreboard and tool on  5 and 4 1/4. (photos show only one card but instructions are for both, process for both cards are basically the same)

       

I picked out 2 different designs from the paper collection and trimmed it  1/8 th of an inch less all around than the kraft base. I also have cut out 6 cut out tags for both cards and the one with the sentiment in the center of the card first, on the other two I left about an 1/8th of an inch lip on the edges of these tags. The only one that I did cut at the exact lines was the center on. Once these other two are cut you will score and fold them to where they will fit on the edge of the center one, once you have done this you can adhere them to the one that will be one the center on the back then adhere it to the design paper on you base.

     

I hope that I have explained that correctly and that you understand what I was hoping these would turn out like. You just need to end up with the sides being able to open to expose the center sentiments of the card.

 

I then just added ribbon one one and twine on the other for the closure and cut up also a different color card stock for the inside.  If you do want to try to create this but don’t understand my instructions, please feel free to contact me thru social media or my email which is rodriguezjeanne72@yahoo.com & I can try to explain it better. It isn’t hard at all.

I do hope that you enjoyed my very first tutorial for Tres Jolie and that you will give it a try if you purchased this kit. These make great greeting cards with a beautiful secret sentiment inside the center.

See you all soon!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne
