February Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello crafty friends!! I’m back with the February Sketch Challenge project!! I had time to actually join in my 2nd challenge for Tres Jolie. As well as it being a process video on how I created this layout! I have yet to decide on the photo that will be going on it but I’m sure it will be of a grand baby or daughter. You get the idea!! Anyhow here is my layout! I had fun creating this, using my stamps that hadn’t been used it a while! I hope u like what I came up with!

 

For this layout, I used papers from Heartfelt Creations! I pulled them from my hoard vault and luckily found a background that I felt was similar to the one from the sketch challenge! I also must say that I have really enjoyed creating for these challenges, as I’ve done 2 since being on this Design Team. They really help get your imagination running!

 

 

 

 

Also used a variety of wooden rubber stamps, some Tim Holtz Stamps , 7 Gypsies stamps, and other non brand named stamps, I used some flowers from 49&Market that were part of the January Scrapbook kit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my process video I created for a quick look at how simple it is to create a layout even if your just learning like I am. I am not as intimidated anymore and another beneficial thing is that I have also been using my stamps more as well and they are no longer sitting on my shelf & drawers just gathering dust haha! Hope you enjoy my video my friends!!

Hope you will leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my layout and any advice you think that I could benefit now in my layout journey that I’m already enjoying! I Thank You for looking at my last post for this month and I hope you keep your eyes peeled for the amazingly fun projects that I have in store for you in March 2020!!

XOXO,

Tres Jolie Kit Club–February Sketch Inspiration

Hi All! I’m back with one last project this month! A layout of me using the sketch from this month’s challenge as inspiration!

Here I am, a little four year old just hanging around!

After coating the papers in gesso, I stamped, stenciled, and inked before adding the embellishments and photo.

My final touch was to cover the photo then use a paintbrush to splatter and drop some “Black Soot” Distress paint on the whole project.

Love Tag

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a project I  created with the February cards, tags and more kit. The papers from -Simple Stories in this kit have the best images and colors. It was a lot of fun creating this project.

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

Here is the project I created with it:

I created a large tag . It can be used on a gift or as a card.

 

For my tag, I used the tags from the kit. I cut my base layer to fit the tag. Then added layers of paper using foam tape in between to give it dimension.

Again, I used the lace and flowers (from my stash) to place in between the layers. I also used some die cuts on the tag as well. Then added the sticker ans hearts from the kit. I used a red glitter embossing powder on the hearts.

This project was easy and fun to make.

Memories Layout with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my last project that I have made with the February scrapbook kit. This layout features my favorite sheet of paper from the kit. It’s one of those papers that looks amazing all on its own! So, I knew that when I used it, I wasn’t going to add mixed media techniques, and it was going to be a sort of palette-cleansing project so that that beautiful piece of paper would stand out in the design. This is what I came up with: I adore the wood image with peeling paint or wall paper maybe!

The only treatment that the paper got was some “swervy” cutting along the edges, and some brown chalk ink on the edges.  You can see a closeup of this below: 

The Creative Embellishments heart chain pieces are so lovely!  I embossed them with Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in shabby white.  I also used a piece of chipboard from my stash- I added some white gesso, then inked it with green chalk ink, and then I dry brushed some pink wax on it.

I kept the flower clusters pretty simple, adding some white gesso to the flowers and leaves.  I also added some of the Prima “Say it in Crystals” from the kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Keep an eye out for some sneaks for our March kits!

There is so much that I was able to create with this months kit.

The Heart That’s Meant To Love You

So it’s the end of my mixed media kit and I’m still playing with all the yummy paints and chipboard!  LOL!  This week I got in my art journal and just played!

After I gessoed my journal page I reached for some gold crackle paste from my stash to give a good squishy layer to press that chipboard into to give it an embedded look.

Once I pressed the Creative Embellishments chipboard in I smoothed a bit of the paste over the top in a place or two to make the chipboard really feel like part of the page.

I set the page aside to let it dry overnight so the crackle could really emerge and develop.

Once the crackle developed and dried I got to work with all my mixed media goodies!

I pulled out the beautiful pink Prima acrylics in the February kit and lightly brushed them over the crazed page, even watering them down a bit to create a watercolor effect over the white portions of the page.

I dropped some black ink in areas and let it just find it’s way through the cracks and I inked the raised areas of the chipboard and the edges of the pages with a stamp pad.

I added back some of the gold shine by rubbing some areas with the gold prima wax.

Next I added some black graphite texture paste from my stash and sprinkled some gold glitter while it was still wet.

Finally I finished it all off with some emelishements, a cute Vintage Girl sticker raised with pop dots and a Tim Holtz paper doll die cut.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all do something beautiful today!!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February Mixed Media Kit-Shutter Stand

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!
Today I’m bringing you my third project using this months Mixed Media Kit, something I don’t have a name for, so I’m just going to call it a shutter stand.

DSC_0032_FRAMED

This project took a bit more work than I had planned, but I love the results! Check out the video to see how it was all done!


Video:


That base may have taken more time than I had originally planned, but I am not sorry with how it came out! If I ever need to make a base like this again, I’ll be more prepared…mostly because it will not be the first attempt!! LOL!

DSC_0036_FRAMED

After my base was put together, the rest of the project went together very quickly! It was just a matter of coating the chipboard in the gold wax and layering everything!

DSC_0039_FRAMED

After all my layers I added some flowers, moss, and texture pebbles that I had left from previous Tres Jolie Kits, and the wicker hearts that came in this months kit!

I hope you enjoyed this project! I’ll see you again next month with projects from the March Mixed Media Kit!
