Sweetness by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that I am leaving Tres Jolie’s Design Team.  I have been creating for the past year and I loved my experience ! Kim is such a generous, kind and talented person ! Thank you Kim for welcoming me in your team !

Thank you to all of you for following me and I hope I helped you develop your creativity !

For my last project, I decide to share a photo tutorial :

I put a coat of clear Gesso on the surface and let it dry.  You can see on the next photo that I used the Kaiser Green Ink with water and put some on the background.

In a previous kit, there was a small stencil in a Prima flower package, so I used it with Modeling Paste :

I used Pink watercolour do add color and splashes.

Here I painted the chipboard with White Gesso and once it was dry, I used a bit of yellow watercolour.

I like to maximize my chipboard pieces so I cut it in 2 :

Here I used some patterned paper and wripped it with my sanding tool.

I finished off with flowers, embellishments and art stones.

Here are some close-ups :

thank you for watching !

Hello everyone !! I am here today sharing 2 tags made with the Cards, Tags and more Kit.

I used 2 different inks for the backgrounds.  I adhered pieces of paper and ephemeras on the tags.  I used the same inks for the leaves and added flowers. I put some pearls at the end !

Cards, Tags and more October Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am sharing today a different project : I have been doing Project Life since January and I thought it might be fun to do a spread in my album with this month’s Cards, Tags and more kit because I LOVE Fall and I have beautiful past memories of this season.  I just adore this 8×8 paper kit from Prima ! Love all the Fall colours and small details you can cut and use as ephemeras on cards, mini-albums, etc.

So here are my two layouts :

As you can see, I tried to use as many papers as possible because I think they are gorgeous and went perfectly with all my photos! I cut a few pumpkins, butterflies and cute ephemeras to decorate.  I used some of the chipboard leaves that I coloured with the ink included in the kit.

I used a circle punch to add details and some hearts from my stash.  For the words Fall and Friends I used a letter die with papers from the kit.

Here are some close-ups :

thank you for watching !

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 !

Family layout by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to share a layout made with beautiful September Scrapbook Kit :

This was a pretty simple layout to make, no mediums, just paper and embellishments !  I used the Rice paper and teared it a bit and adhered it on the background paper.  I cut out a quote from one of the paper and created a cascade with flowers. Added embellishments and that was it ! I love the result !

Beach, Sun and Sand by Annie

Hello everyone ! I am back today with another layout made with August Scrapbook Kit :

I really loved doing this layout, I love it !

The first thing I did is apply White Gesso mixed with water on the surface because I wanted to do a wash over the patterns.  I then teared a peace of patterned paper and adhered it in the middle.

After that I used the Stencil included in the kit with Modeling Paste.  I put a coat of Clear Gesso on it because I knew I would use Watercolor.

I made different layers with different papers, a frame and vellum included in the flower package. I like creating a 3D effect with peaces of cardstock that I recycle from boxes or packages.  This time I used watercolor after everything was in place.  At the very end I added some Art Stones and chipboards from my stash for the title.

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to present a Journal Spread I made while I was camping.  I had brought my Journal with me, remember the journal we had in a previous kit ?

Here is the beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit :

Here is the kit content :

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

  1. Ciao Bella – Romantic Time 12×12 Paper Pack
  2. Ciao Bella – Rice Paper – Romantic Time – Endless Love
  3. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Neutral Beauty
  4. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Sweet Species
  5. Scrapaholics – Chipboard – Ivy vine spray set
  6. Scrapaholics – Chipboard -Leafy Flourish set 2
  7. Creative Embellishments – Chipboard – Mini Frames
  8. Simplicity – Lace
I was inspired by the Rice Paper, I thought it would make a gorgeous  background in my album.  I put a coat of Matt Gel to adhere it on the background.
 

I adhered peaces of Lace too in the middle also with Gel.

 

Once the gel was dry, I used some White Gesso mixed with water and did like a wash on the surface.

 

I glued some frame chipboards and added some crackle paste here and there. If you want more crackle, you have to let it dry.

 

Here is the final result after I used some watercolor and added flowers.

 

I cut out the title in one of the patterned paper from the kit :

my best friend by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!

I have been away for a few weeks on vacation and I am back today with another boy’s layout from the Scrapbook Kit !

A pretty simple layout where I used the stencil with modeling paste on the background after I had coated with clear gesso.  I used some green and blue watercolors once the paste was dry.

I cut out some of the clocks on one of the patterned paper and used them under the photo.  I also used the vellum and the frame from the flower kits. I love that we can use those parts.

I used part of the chipboard from Creative Embellishments at the bottom of the photo. I also used beautiful flowers and embellishments here and there. The title was on one of the papers, I just cut out the words.

Here are some close-ups :

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I will see you soon with another project ! Come and join us on Facebook to enter this month’s challenge ! You can win beautiful prizes 🙂

Tags by Annie – Cards, Tags and more Kit

Hello everyone !

This is the last day of the month and I am back today sharing some tags I made with the Cards, Tags and more July Kit !

I took 3 different papers from the 6×6 paper pad and cut the top corners and punched a hole to create 3 tags.  I used some peaces of the chipboards included in the kit and coloured them with paint.  I added some washi tape, ephemeras, wood shapes, coupons and flowers to decorate them.

See you soon for next month’s kit reveal !!!
