Tres Jolie Kit Club-December Mixed Media-Dressform

Hey, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog!

For my third project using the December Mixed Media Kit, I altered used some paper from my stash with the mediums and drywall tapes from the kit to create a décor dressform! (Dressform Cut File from svgcuts.com)

Can you believe this wasn’t my original plan? I had thought to alter a pencil box to make it look like a treasure chest! Things didn’t go according to plan, and I had to adjust! You can see the transformation in my YouTube video!

Even though I hadn’t planned on making flowers, I am in love with all the texture the drywall tapes impart! (All of the glue and gel hadn’t had time to dry fully & become transparent yet when I had to take the photos!)

My main flower is actually made from the Tim Holtz “Jumbo Tattered Pinecone” Bigz Die and the rest of the flowers came from the Time Holtz “Tattered Florals” Bigz Die.

In this picture of the back you can really see the beautiful lace I used as, more or less, the bodice of the “dress.” I am so glad I hoarded that lace for so long!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–December Mixed Media Kit-Top Hat

Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog! Although it wasn’t intentional, I completed four projects this month! The rice paper I used here was misplaced at the beginning of the month, and was put away in the wrong spot! I think it statically adhered to the plastic of the Cards, Tags, and More Kit’s patterned paper. That being said, once I realized it was “missing,” I already had three projects completed, but I still had this rice paper, so I created a winter top hat!

DSC_0001_FRAMED

This little hat stands approximately 3-3/4” tall and is made sturdy using some chicken wire “ribbon.” That’s the only way I know how to describe the wire!

On the front I used some ReneaBouquet’s Beautiful Board Snowflakes from my stash, sprayed with the two Lindy’s Gang Moon Shadow Mists from the kit, and attached them with some heavy gel medium!

DSC_0010_FRAMED

Here you can see where I used some of the “Crazing” medium from the Tim Holtz collage medium set in this months kit on the outside of the hat, which I then sprayed with the “Gossamer Gold” Moon Shadow Mist!

Two other touches for this piece were two small cabochons for the “buttons” on the hat and some glitter ribbon around the base!


In addition to items from the December Mixed Media Kit (in the following photo), I used:

Mixed media kit

Silhouette Design Store “Mourner’s 3D Top Hat” (ID #67665) Assembly Instructions for “Mourner’s 3D Top Hat”

Silhouette Cameo 3, Nicapa Mat, Premium Blade, ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board Snowflakes, AC Glitter Ribbon, FabriTac, JudiKins Diamond Glaze, Liquitex Super Heavy Gloss Gel, Art Glitter Glue, Spellbinder Tool n One, BEST 1/4” double sided tape, Tim Holtz Mini Snips, and Ranger Brayer

Recycled Tag

You may have realized by now that I like to use every little scrap of my kits.  This month I had not only the Mixed Media kit but also the scrapbook kit so I had a lot to work with.

When I got low on my papers I began to look at the pretty packaging that the Blue Fern embellishments came in and it replicated the patterns on the paper in a smaller print.  I thought to myself that it would make the perfect tag so I got to work!

I cut the tag shape out and punched a hole at the top

I then used the stencil from the mixed media kit and some molding paste to create some great texture on my newly created tag.

Once the new texture was created and dried I sprayed on some Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist from the Mixed Media kit.

Next I added more texture by applying some paper packing scraps at the bottom with more molding paste and I tucked in one of the little resin birds from the Scrapbook kit.

I continued to layer more texture with the mesh tape from the mixed media kit as well.

While the molding paste was wet I sprinkled on some coarse silver glitter and allowed it all to dry well.  Once it was all dry I added a title cutout with a pop dot and rubbed the bird with some metallic gold.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you are inspired to look at your packaging in a different light!!

Cutting up and making cards

Hey y’all!!  So this year I just have not gotten it together to get the pretty photo Christmas cards printed and sent out.  I got the photo taken at Thanksgiving and had great intentions but it just didn’t happen.  Thanks goodness I had the beautiful December Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit packed FULL of Blue Fern papers and embellishments that were perfect to whip up some cards that I could just slip those photos in!

I know, you are wondering why I used that big ‘ol beautiful scrapbook kit to make a bunch of cards.  But I’m not much of a rule follower with it comes to things like that and I like to do the unexpected.  The truth is, you can do so much more with such an awesome kit…any crafty project you have going on that month really!  It just worked out so well for me this month!  I made cards and decorations and even added to my gift wrap!  But we will get to all that.   Today, lets look a little closer to these cards.

I used the chipboard ornaments and sprinkled them with embossing powder to give them a metallic shimmer.  I then added a scrap of silk as a ribbon to the ornament.

I also cut lots of pieces of the papers out and layered them with pop dots to create dimension and depth.  And as usual I inked all the edges to give it a finished and distressed look.

This is the second half of the set.

Created in the same way, with lots of fussy cut Blue Fern papers applied with pop dots and inked up, showing lots of layers.

So there you have it.  I had a great time just cutting up all the papers and layering them to create some great cards!  I hope this inspires you to look at your kits differently and see what you can create!

Tres Jolie Kits-December Mixed Media Kit-Canvas

Hey, all! I’m up on the blog today using the December Mixed Media Kit! For this project I used the canvas, mediums, stencil, and drywall tapes from the kit!

DSC_0039-FRAMED

I don’t often work with realistic images, but I really do like the print on the Stamperia line! I layered the rice paper over the matching patterned paper, and one eye didn’t quite line up right, but, to me, I think it gives an other-worldly vibe!


Process Video:


DSC_0047-FRAMED

Here you can see some of the crazing effect, as well as a closer look at the TCW stencil with the Lindy’s Gang, “Treasure Island Aqua,” Moon Shadow Mist.

DSC_0044-FRAMED

I layered the paper and rice paper from my stash with the mediums and drywall tapes from the kit to create a very vintage, very aged effect.

Vintage Christmas Cards

Hello crafty friends! This week I’m back with a set of 4 Christmas cards using the December Cards, Tags, & More Kit . I was originally going to bring you my tutorial but decided to hold that off till next week instead!

I absolutely love this kit! Of course I love them all! But this kit is amazing and when I first received it I was bombarded with ideas in my mind of what I would do with it! I had already set aside the beautiful images that I used from Pion Design Papers “Grandma’s Attic” .  I knew I would use them on some cards for Christmas because the friends receiving these cards would love these just as much as I do.

 

These cards measure 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, I used the red and green card stock from the kit for my base. Of course then used some of the 8X8 Tim Holtz Noel Paper pad . I did add some of the flowers from the kit on 2 of the cards and ephemera. Finished them off by adding some liquid pearls as well as some Stickles in Gold and Silver.

I hope that you enjoyed my project this week and will keep your eyes peeled for my tutorial next week that I promised! I saved the best for last since it will be Christmas Eve ! Now I gotta run and make the post office before it gets later, I’m always a procrastinator when mailing Christmas cards! ~Hugs~ Jeanne

Christmas Canvas

Hey y’all and Happy Thursday to ya!  I’ve got a fun Christmas Canvas for you today made with the December Mixed Media kit and the Blue Fern papers we used for the blog hop.  I had so much fun with them I just couldn’t put them down!

I even made y’all a little process video!  Despite a little wonky foggy stuff going on with my lens on the first half of the video, you can see the details on how it all came together.

Take a peek at some close ups below for more detail.

You’ll notice here I used a smaller stretched canvas turned backwards on top of the board canvas that is included in the kit.  This gave me a nice place to create a shadow box effect.  You could tuck all sorts of fun embellishments in there!

I really had fun layering it all and just going nuts with this canvas.  The little “joy” banner was one of my favorite parts I added.  You can see details on it in the video as well.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this inspired you to create something beautiful today!!

December Mixed Media Kit-Tres Jolie Kit Club-Poinsettia “Vase”

Hey, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!

 

For my first project using the December Mixed Media Kit, I altered an old jelly jar and added some faux floral pieces to create a rustic, winter/holiday décor piece!


DSC_0018-FRAMED

You can’t see it in the photos, but I used the last bit of my drywall tape with the holes from the kit across the top of the jar to help arrange my foliage and poinsettias! And, because the flowers aren’t glued in, I can switch them out if I want!


Video:


DSC_0020-FRAMED

I have so many different textures on my “vase”! I used the crazing medium and the grid drywall tape from the kit, and some crackle paste and glitter from my stash to decorate the jar!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

As you can see, I used the crackle paste with the stencil from this months kit! I love the stencil from this month, it is a “simple” leaf pattern which makes if very versatile!

DSC_0023-FRAMED

The final coat on the piece was to spray it with (and roll it in!) the “Treasure Island Aqua” Moon Shadow Mist by Lindy’s Gang that came in the kit!
