Christmas Canvas

Hey y’all and Happy Thursday to ya!  I’ve got a fun Christmas Canvas for you today made with the December Mixed Media kit and the Blue Fern papers we used for the blog hop.  I had so much fun with them I just couldn’t put them down!

I even made y’all a little process video!  Despite a little wonky foggy stuff going on with my lens on the first half of the video, you can see the details on how it all came together.

Take a peek at some close ups below for more detail.

You’ll notice here I used a smaller stretched canvas turned backwards on top of the board canvas that is included in the kit.  This gave me a nice place to create a shadow box effect.  You could tuck all sorts of fun embellishments in there!

I really had fun layering it all and just going nuts with this canvas.  The little “joy” banner was one of my favorite parts I added.  You can see details on it in the video as well.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this inspired you to create something beautiful today!!

December Mixed Media Kit-Tres Jolie Kit Club-Poinsettia “Vase”

Hey, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!

 

For my first project using the December Mixed Media Kit, I altered an old jelly jar and added some faux floral pieces to create a rustic, winter/holiday décor piece!

You can’t see it in the photos, but I used the last bit of my drywall tape with the holes from the kit across the top of the jar to help arrange my foliage and poinsettias! And, because the flowers aren’t glued in, I can switch them out if I want!


Video:

I have so many different textures on my “vase”! I used the crazing medium and the grid drywall tape from the kit, and some crackle paste and glitter from my stash to decorate the jar!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

As you can see, I used the crackle paste with the stencil from this months kit! I love the stencil from this month, it is a “simple” leaf pattern which makes if very versatile!

The final coat on the piece was to spray it with (and roll it in!) the “Treasure Island Aqua” Moon Shadow Mist by Lindy’s Gang that came in the kit!

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Happy Holidays crafty friends! This week I’m back to share with you a simple project that I created using the December Cards, Tags, & More Kit. Since the holidays are here sometimes we don’t know what kind of gift to give so we settle on giving them a store gift card, in my case I’ll be using these to give my grandsons gift cards to a game store.

These gift card holders measure 3.5 x 4.75. I used the 12×12  black/white card stock that came in the kit as my base and used the papers from the 8×8 Tim Holtz paper pad for the inside . I selected a different pattern of the paper pad to use as my pocket where the gift card will go. I did use vintage photo distress ink from Tim Holtz to distress all of the edges of my papers.

I then began embellishing it using the black paper doilies that came in the kit as well.  I adhered it to the spine and then adhering it to the front and back. Before completely adhering it on the front and back however , I added my ribbons that would be my closure. I did cut my black one a little too small but its okay, I’m sure my grandson won’t judge me on that (haha)!

I then added picked out the beautiful pieces of ephemera that came in the kit. I added them to the front and one piece to on the inside. I then finished them off adding a flower from the kit which are super cute and I also added a small flat back pearl on the front just as an added interest.

 

I do hope you enjoyed what I came up with this week using this magnificent kit! My next post next week I will be bringing you a tutorial so I hope you will join me again. Till then please come back and enjoy the rest of the Tres Jolie designers and their amazingly beautiful projects now for the holidays!! There are still kits available so its not too late for you to still make some of these easy gift cards! The links to all of the Tres Jolie sites are down below!! Tell Kim I sent you okay!!  Till next week! ~Hugs~ Jeanne

November Mixed Media Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our November Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has these amazing metal wings to alter as the project.

There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three embroidery hoops, some canvas fabric, and some beautiful embellishments: a Prima resin frame and flowers, and some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.

 

Let’s look at some of the projects created with this kit. First up is Crystal:

Next up is Michelle:

Now here is my project:

I love how we all started with the same materials, but ended up with totally different looks.If you want to see how Crystal and Michelle created their projects, just head over to our Youtube channel for a step by step video.

Because our kits are packed with full size products, there are always leftover after you complete your project. Let’s look at what Michelle and Crystal created with their leftovers:

Michelle used some leftover crackle paste and inka gold to alter this pumpkin.

Crystal used her wooden heart to be the anchor for another project. I also spy some kit flowers, inka gold, glitter and mica mist.That cute title came from a past kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Make sure you come back, we are revealing our December kit very soon.

AND, we are having a  Sale RIGHT NOW! Check it out!

Use Your Wings Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone, Kim here sharing my Mixed Media project created with the November Mixed Media kit.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of different mediums. We have  some crackle paste, some dry glitter, mica powder and some inka gold. Also included is are some flowers to alter. Everything needed to alter the metal wings included in the kit.

Here is the kit:

These wings were so fun to create with.

Here is my project:

I started with the wooden heart in the kit. I gave it a nice heavy coat of the crackle paste and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I wiped the high points with the inka gold, then gave it a spritz with mist I made from the mica powder.

For the wings, I went over the high points with the inka gold. The I added glue to the tips and sprinkled them with the dry glitter for some shimmer.

For the flowers, I took a few of the script ones and swiped them with the inka gold. Then I used the mist and sprayed all the flowers for a good dose of shimmer. It’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but they really shine in person. The blue flowers are from the scrapbook kit. They added just the right punch of color. The wings, I mad from a mold and just sprayed them with the mist.

Once all that was done, I just put it all together. Once I got the vision in my heard as what I wanted to do, this came together pretty quickly (except for drying time, LOL).

Remember to stay tuned to the blog  for more inspiration using the our kits. We will be revealing the December kit soon.
