Tres Jolie Kit Club–April Mixed Media Kit–Easter Candlesticks

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! For my first project this month I have made a set of Easter Candlesticks!
DSC_0020_FRAMED

On the candlesticks I sprinkled some of the Magical Shakers, sprayed them with some water, set them upside down, and let the color run how it wanted! I did the same process with the eggs, just not upside down! Check out the video to see all the details.

I added some glitter from this months kit to the bottom of the eggs, set them in some moss, and added some pearls to accent!

DSC_0022_FRAMED DSC_0023_FRAMED

The gesso on the candlestick and eggs had some of the texture powder mixed in to give everything a not-quite-smooth surface!


April Mixed Media Kit:

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit–Birdhouse

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kits blog! Today I’ll be sharing a Spring Birdhouse I created using items from this month’s mixed media kit along with items from my stash!

DSC_0001_FRAMED

I created the birdhouse with various brown and tan cardstock sheets and some patterned papers from Friends and Craft O’Clock using Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions)


Video:


DSC_0009_FRAMED

I used the larger circle from from this months kit on the “entrance” of the birdhouse, then used the last of the transparency and flowers from my stash to fill it in! The stick is one from my yard, the brick chipboard is from the kit, and painted with a single layer of the Cafe Au Lait paint. I added some of the metal butterflies to finish things off!

DSC_0005_FRAMED

This photo of the roof shows the watered-down paints that I used to add some extra color to the birdhouse!

DSC_0010_FRAMED

Here at the back of the birdhouse, I arranged some of the chipboard to cover the rear hole from the stick!

DSC_0007_FRAMED

More bricks and butterflies on the front!

DSC_0008_FRAMED DSC_0006_FRAMED

I painted the back of the transparency pieces with the Olive Green paint before using gel medium to hold it in place!

March Mixed Media Kit

In addition to items from the kit (*From previous Tres Jolie kits), I also used:

Scotch Advanced Tape Glider; BEST Double-Sided Tape 1/4” & 1/8”; Art Glitter Glue; FabriTac; Spellbinder Tool n One; Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions); *Friends & Craft O’Clock “Vintage Bison”; *Bazzill “Dark Kraft” Cardstock (x4); Silhouette Cameo 3; Niacapa Cutting Mat; Silhouette Premium Blade; Stick from outside; Krylon Workable Fixatif; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

Note: All other cardstock was unmarked & I’ve had it so long I can no longer recall manufacturer or how I acquired it! I used 2 sheets of the dark brown and 2 sheets of the light tan. (At least I’m fairly certain, it may have been 3 sheets of the dark brown.)

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge!

DSC_0057-FRAMED

I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

DSC_0061-FRAMED

On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.

DSC_0062-FRAMED

Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!

DSC_0058-FRAMED DSC_0059-FRAMED

I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!

DSC_0060-FRAMED

The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit-Canvas

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! For my second project this month I created a grung-y canvas using items from this months kit on a canvas I had previously purchased at Dollar Tree!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

This canvas was quick and easy! I had it together in a day (the paint dried rather quickly!) and just set it aside to let the glues and 13@rts Gel Medium from the kit dry! See how I put it all together here!


Video:


With just a few items from my stash, I created a little décor piece in one day! (And I never finish a project in one day!!)

DSC_00011-FRAMED

DSC_0006-FRAMED

DSC_0009-FRAMED

After I coated the canvas in black gesso, I layered some torn pages from an old book and a piece of patterned paper on the canvas then used a palette knife to create the broad strokes of paint. Without adding gesso first, I put a single layer of the same paint on the brick chipboard from the kit.

DSC_0005-FRAMED

After the paint dried I added my transparency piece using the gel medium from the kit.

DSC_0007-FRAMED

Still using the gel medium, I put my flower clusters together, added my butterflies, and fussy cut leaves from parts of the transparency to add to my clusters.

DSC_0003-FRAMED


March Mixed Media Kit:

In addition to the March Mixed Media Kit (*From previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used: Book sheets from Memoires Parisiennes Etsy Shop; *Friends & Craft o’Clock – Vintage Bison – #1; Liquitex Clear Gesso; Liquitex Black Gesso; ReneaBouquets Mini Gold Roses; Canvas from Dollar Tree; FabriTac

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit-Paddle

Hey, Everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

For my first project this month I am sharing with you what I made using the unfinished paddle from this month’s kit!
DSC_0017_FRAMED

As you can see, I also used the mediums, transparency, butterflies, and one of the frames from the kit to put my board together.
Check out how I did it with this video!


Video:


DSC_0023_FRAMED

I mixed some of the 13@rts Olive Green paint with the 13@rts Gel Medium, both from the kit, and stenciled the mixture on in a few spots.

DSC_0021_FRAMED DSC_0020_FRAMED

The sketched leaves are from the Silhouette store, but you don’t need this specific file to recreate the look! You could hand-draw your own design, use stamps, or fussy cut a nice patterned paper!

DSC_0025_FRAMED

I used a thick layer of the Gel Medium on the frame so it would hold the frame and the stems down. For the leaves that didn’t get caught under the frame, I went back and used some Art Glitter Glue to attach them. I also used little dabs of the Gel Medium to hold on the butterflies!

DSC_0016_FRAMED

I absolutely love how my paddle came out! And it wasn’t overly complicated! I spent more time waiting for things to dry than I did putting together!

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this months mixed media kit! Make sure you subscribe to our blog and YouTube Channel so you can always be kept up-to-date on kit releases and sample projects!

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!
DSC_0001_FRAMED

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

Febuary 2020 sketch

The sketch for this month’s challenge. Watch the following video to see how I created my layout!


Video:


DSC_0004_FRAMED

DSC_0006_FRAMED

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

DSC_0008_FRAMED

DSC_0005_FRAMED

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.

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!


February Mixed Media Kit:

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Heart Explosion Box!

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! For my second project this month I have a Heart Explosion Box, just in time for Valentine’s Day! I used the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit with my mediums from the Mixed Media Kit! I just loved how the hearts already looked like they were floating away! But the same effect could easily be done with the “Follow Your Heart” chipboard in the Mixed Media Kit!

DSC_0001_FRAMED

Everything here except the box and the sisal (and the glues!) came from a Tres Jolie Kit! Either this month or previous months!

Check out how I did it all in my video:


 

DSC_0003_FRAMED

DSC_0010_FRAMED

DSC_0011_FRAMED

For the solid parts of the hearts I used some crackle paint and then the two Sparks from this months kit. On the outline, I used the Vintage Gold wax from this month’s kit!

DSC_0006_FRAMED DSC_0005_FRAMED DSC_0002_FRAMED

I used a paintbrush to apply some Glossy Accents to the sisal and then sprinkled the glitter on! I didn’t shake off the extra until I thought all of the pieces were set and dry!

DSC_0007_FRAMED

On the box I used the Sparks paints and the wax from this months kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February Mixed Media Kit-Wicker Heart

Hey, all and welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club blog! I’m here with my first February project to share with you; using the wicker heart, flowers and mediums that came in the kit, as well as items from my stash, I created a grunge-y décor piece!

DSC_0026_FRAMED

Ready to see how I did it? Check out my video!


Video:


Now for some close up photos that really show the details!

DSC_0028_FRAMED

Even though it’s a resin key, the paint and “rust” really give it an aged metal look!

DSC_0027_FRAMED

DSC_0031_FRAMED

Fortunately Prima paints are rather think and quick drying! That really helped them stay on top of the burlap!

DSC_0030_FRAMED

I just love how the splattering came out! It might get messy, but the effect is absolutely worth it!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-January Mood Board-Symphony of Love

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I am sharing with you a piece I created using the January Scrapbooking Kit, inspired by this months mood board! (See below!)

DSC_0025_FRAMED

In the above photos you can see where I added the “Daffodil” Shimmerz Creameez & “Milled Lavender” Distress Oxide Spray!

DSC_0017_FRAMED

For the lattice behind the shutters I added some “Buttercup” Embossing Powder from my stash to one of the Creative Embellishment pieces found in this months kit! And the bird? One I had left from the December 2019 Scrapbooking Kit!

DSC_0020_FRAMED

DSC_0018_FRAMED

It doesn’t happen all the time, but sometimes I feel the need to add tons of flowers! Fortunately Kim makes sure there are flowers to spare in her kits, because two of the three additional flower packages I had saved from previous months! (In total I have five flower packs on here, two from this months kit, two from previous months, and one I actually bought myself!)
