Mixed Media Madness

Hey everyone, Kim here. I’m serving up some mixed media madness this Monday morning. I worked with the September 2020 Mixed Media kit.

Here is the Mixed Media kit if you haven’t already seen it:

Here is the project I created with the kit:

How about some close-ups:

I loved working with this birdcage. I painted it with 2 layers of gesso (from a past mixed media kit). The added 2 layers of acrylic paint in vintage rose. I dry brushed on some sparks paint in butterfly spells in random spots (also used it on the bird).

I adhered the floral vine from the kit down the side. I stuck in some smaller lighter pink flowers (from my stash) in between flowers in the vine. I also added some cheesecloth. At the bottom of the vine, I added flowers from the kit. The silver beads are from my stash.

I used the spray to add some splatters to the alpha cards from the kit. You can see a close up on my painted bird.

On the inside you can see how I used the alpha cards as monograms for mine and hubby’s first names. I added the “25” plaque (from my stash) as this photo is from the day we renewed our wedding vows for our 25th anniversary. I added the silver beads to each side instead of brads. The flowers and leaf are from the flower pack in the kit.

A card and gift tag set

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful coral/peachy colored kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards for birthdays or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a birthday card and gift tag set.

This is a big card, I used the full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to create the base. I used another sheet to die cut the frame.

How about some close-ups:

For the background I layered 2 sheets of paper. I used a peach pastel chalk ink on the edges of the paper. I also did some faux stitching and stamping on the top layer.

I used some foam tape on the frame to give the card some more dimension. I also added some foam tape to the flower. The frame was inked with the peach chalk ink and the edges was rubbed with some metallic wax in firebird. The butterfly was dry brushed with a metallic golden coal paint (I wish you could see how shimmery it is). The center piece is a resin made from a moud and rubbed with the same wax used on the frame.

The base of the tag was created the same way as the card. The oval frame is the inside of the die cut. It got the same ink and wax treatment as well. The center is a small leftover resin piece. I just painted it with a bit of the metallic gold paint. I punched a hole in the corner and added the seam binding so it could be tied to a gift bag of just a gift.

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the September 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’m really loving with this kit. Masculine layouts are becoming my thing.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the September mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling and misting I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

Here you can see more of the stenciling and misting. You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of fussy cutting on the pipe frame from one of the sheets.

More layers, chipboard (swirls were cut from gear border) and flowers from the kit. Another fussy cut frame from the papers.

Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone, Kim here. I’m serving up some mixed media madness today, working with the August 2020 Mixed Media kit.

Here is the Mixed Media kit if you haven’t already seen it:

Here is the project I created with the kit:

How about some close-ups:

I used the mould from the kit and a mould from my stash to create the center piece. The background was created with a stencil and some modeling paste, then everything was covered in 2 layers of black gesso.

Once the gesso was dry,  I layered the distress oxide sprays starting with lightest to darkest. Once I sprayed the oxide spray, I then misted it with water to deepen the oxide effect.

After I was happy with the distress oxide effects. I used the magicals in the kit and mixed it with a bit of water to create a paste. I took my finger and rubbed it on the high points of the moulds.

Once it was done, I realized it needed a little something more. I pulled out the black ink and added the splatters. I think that finished it off perfectly.

Untitled layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing another layout I created with the August 2020 scrapbook kit. These papers from AB Studios are gorgeous.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This was one of those layouts where you have a vision in your head and you hope you can translate it onto paper. It worked for the most part. As long as I was just going along and not thinking I was fine. The minute I started thinking about it, is when I wen “off the rails”.  🙂

How about some close-ups:

Even though fussy cutting isn’t my favorite thing to do, I did a bit of it on this layout. Here is one cluster. There are several sheets in this kit that just scream to be fussy cut.

For the layers under my photo I used the frame ephemera from the kit and a piece of paper cut from the kit. The gold doily is from my stash (here’s a secret, I hoard all kinds of doilies. Shhh…don’t tell anyone).

For my bottom cluster, I used flowers and leaves from the kit. You can also see another fussy cut piece stuffed in there. The cheesecloth and wings are from my stash.  I used a vintage blue embossing powder on them, it has flecks of gold in it (also from my stash).

My bottom left cluster has a birdcage and mini frame (from my stash). I used some gold embossing powder on them. There is also my last fussy cut element here, along with a piece of chipboard and flower all from the kit.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to leave us a comment. Also, sign up for our newsletter. we will beginning sending out update via newsletter bi-monthly.

Monday monthly wrap-up

Hey everyone, Kim here. since we are in the last week of the month, we are going to do a monthly wrap -up and MAYBE some sneaks for next month.

If you haven’t had internet access for the last month and missed all our social media post, I’ll start off by showing you the July kits.

This is the scrapbook kit (there are still a few available), it was filled with beautiful papers from Srapboys. The DT did an amazing job creating with this kit.

Here are some examples:

Can you believe Cris created that stunning tag flip book with just leftover scraps?

Next up is the Cards, Tags and more kit. I love this kit because each month it’s a surprise. For July we had a junk journal.

Look at these journals:

I created this textured cover for my journal.

 

Lastly, but definitely not least is the Mixed Media kit. The fun thing about this kit is there is always a project to use your mediums on right out of the box.  So not only do you get to build your mediums stash, you get to create cool projects.

Here is the kit:

Let’s look at some projects:

There is also our monthly challenge. You still have time to enter if you haven’t. The challenge is open to everyone and there is always a great prize for the winner.

Here is the mood board if you haven’t seen it:

August is just a few days away. We will be revealing our kits on August 3rd.  We are so excited, the kits are amazing. How about a few sneak peeks of what’s in the works?
