February Mixed Media Project by Annie

Hello everyone !!! I am always excited to present new projects, new kits !! This month’s Mixed Media Kit has a beautiful Rattan Heart, concentrated Watercolor, flowers, chipboard and Wax from Finnabair.

The Rattan Heart was White originally but I decided to play with the Watercolors a little bit.  I started to use the Black and then I had the idea of mixing the Red with the Bora Bora color.  It became a beautiful Purple.

 

I used the same color to paint the chipboard.  I glued the flowers on the Heart and put White Gesso and some black Watercolor in the middle of the flowers.  To finish, I put some Wax on the chipboard and the Heart.

Life is wonderful by Annie

Hello everyone!  Sharing today my last layout for this month’s kit.  I decided to create a layout with contrasting bright colors.  What I did was pretty simple actually : I teared up some papers and adhered them on the back,  put a coat of clear Gesso on everything and then I used some paints (Mint and Purple).

I cut the chipboard frame from Creative Embellishments in 2 pieces and coloured them with the chalk ink Purple. I placed them on top and on the bottom of my photo.

I added gorgeous Prima flowers, Lavender Frost tickets and the resin hearts included in the kit as a finishing touch.

Here are some close-ups :

Day by day by Annie Carignan

Hello friends !

I am sharing today a layout with soft colors. I was in a Scrap Therapie mood! I found this photo of myself from a few years ago that I had forgotten.  I though it was nice and wondered why I hadn’t used it before… Never too late!

I put some ink on the chipboard to put behind my photo.

Coated the background with clear gesso and used a stencil from my stash with Crackle Paste.  I used watercolor on the background just a little to add some color to match the paper.  I cut out some peaces of the different papers included in the kit to put behind the photo along with some of the embellishments.

The kit has such gorgeous flowers from Prima !

Here are some other close-ups :

 

I just love these resin hearts ! I would put them everywhere !

More gorgeous flowers !! And that flower chipboard…..

The fabric you see behind the photo is from my stash.

Cards, Tags and more by Annie Carignan

Hello !! Have you seen this beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit this month? It is filled with beautiful products from Prima.  You have plenty of supplies to create beautiful projects like mini-albums, tags, ATC’s, cards, Art Journal spreads, layouts,  the possibilities are endless !

I like to go out of my comfort zone once in a while so I decided to create ATC’s, something I haven’t done very often !  So I chose the 3×4 wood ATC cards.

Here is the kit :

A new year has begun and every January, I always like to look forward and try to make new resolutions for the upcoming months.  That is why I chose to create 4 ATC’s with positive quotes on them.  I will put them where everyone can see them in the house, because they are good for my kids too.

I chose a different 6×6 paper for every ATC and adhered on the wood.  I wanted to put some watercolor on them so I put a coat of clear Gesso on the paper.  I cut out some of the Darice on all 4 and then put some flowers, art titles printery and resin embellishments. The quotes are from my stash. If you would like to do something similar and you don’t have word stickers, you can always type them in Word, print them and cut them.

LOVE by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !!

I am sharing today a layout made with January’s Scrapbook Kit. It is beautiful and so romantic, I just loved playing with it !  There are so many possibilities with this kit ! Layouts, cards, mini-albums, Project Life, whatever you want.

Here is a little walk through of my background process : As you can see, I chose a flower stencil with paste but any stencil can do the trick and you  can use any paste, light, medium, heavy, clear or white, doesn’t matter : as long as you add texture.

I used my watercolors with water to add color and splashes. As you can see on the photo, I cut out some flowers from some of the papers.  Big flowers on a paper can sometimes be overwhelming for some people, but don’t be scared to cut them out to use them as an embellishment.  That is what I did by adding them to the layout with 3D foams under to add thickness.

I also like to add splashes of White Gesso mixed with water.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

I created tags with papers in the kit :

Bonheur by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here I am today with a layout made with this month’s sketch.

Here is a photo of my son very captivated by what Santa is saying to him, even if he was older and did not want to sit on his lap !! I thought these colors went perfectly with this kit. I just love the flowers Poinsettia Kiss from Prima, they go perfectly with the Paper Rose Blue flowers.

I first put a coat of Clear Gesso on the background then I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit. I used some gray watercolour from my stash. I used a stamp from my stash with Red ink as a repeat to the flowers and the Red title bonheur.

On the Holly and Berry frame from Creative Embellishments, I put a coat of gel and used the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit, I also could have embossed but the color was perfect. I put some of the pearls included in the kit and the Silver leaves.

Believe by Annie Carignan

Here is my project that I created with the Mixed Media Kit. I loved doing it ! So much that I put it in my living room for decoration this year.

When I received this kit I thought about it all week. I had an all day crop and I was waiting until then to start working on it. By then I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this project.

This is a souvenir of a magical moment that happened when we were walking in the Christmas Market. It was snowing and all of a sudden, we heard Tinkle Bells. Santa Claus was walking outside and came to see the kids, they were so surprised and speechless !! Here they are listening to him speaking. I will never forget that moment !

In the kit there were 3 paint colours : Red, Green and Linen. I used the Linen paint for the base coat. I used the Holly mini stencil on the surface with some Modeling Paste from my stash. One everything was dry I started to play with the Red and the Green mixed with a little bit of water to create watercolour. I added some splashes of paint to pop the colors. The poinsettias were really flashy so I decided to tone them down a little with the Green paint for the pine and with Red for the flowers. I put White Gesso on the ornaments and added Antique Silver Art Sugar. As a finishing touch, I took some Snow I had in my stash and put it on the pines and the poinsettias. I embossed the wood title Believe with Embossing Powder from my stash.

Noel by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! I am presenting today another layout made with the December Scrapbook Kit. 

For this layout I used a few mediums included in the Mixed Media kit but you can use just about any products you have at home to get the same results 🙂  I used a stencil with Magic Wax from Prima on the background but Modeling Paste would do the trick just as well.  I cut out different images from the Maja Design paper collection to put behind the photo.  I also used a snowflake punch from my stash and some wood snowflakes too.  

As I was cutting the edges of the papers I noticed that they could be used later.  I started to roll them like  I always do before getting rid of them and then I thought to myself : why not use them as decorations ? You can see that I used a few on my page 🙂

Of course I put those beautiful Silver blue flowers  that went perfectly with that collection and also added some “snow” here and there.  The title  Noel is something I had in my stash but I didn’t like the color so I put some gel on it and put the Art Sugar from Prima included in the Mixed Media kit.

15th Anniversary from Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!! December kit is here and I am super excited to share my creations for this month.  December is a special month for us because first of all, my husband and I met in December, there is Christmas of course AND my daughter was born in December.

This background paper reminded me of our wedding because we got married in the Winter but also because my dress and the groom’s accessories had light blue in them.  This was the perfect kit for Winter photos :). We will celebrate our 15th Anniversary in January so why not do a layout about that day 🙂

This is a pretty simple layout where I did not use a lot of mediums except some splashes of White Gesso on the background and some gel to fix the snow and the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit.

I used different layers of paper behind the photo and lots of Pearls.  I used the Holly and Berry Border from Creative Embellishments that I painted White.  I just love the little Shovel !!!

I loved adding the Art Sugar everywhere, I think it adds great texture and color to the layout.

November kit 4th reveal by Annie Carignan

 

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today my fourth project for this month.  The focus on this layout is the beautiful resin frame from Prima which is included in the Mixed Media kit.

I coated some clear Gesso on this White 12×12 cardstock. Then I used stencil from the mixed media and Modeling Paste.  I stamped the background with ABStudio stamp and put some color with aquarelle paint from my stash.

I cut different peaces of flowers, leaves and clocks from what I had left over from the scrapbook kit and added them under the photo as well as peaces of chipboard that I painted white.

I used some of the Finnabair glaze on the frame and art stones to create texture.
