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 Spotlight

Today we are showcasing our February Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media, tools AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has these amazing burlap heart to alter as the project (Just in time for Valentine’s Day).

There is enough products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included is a wooden arch shutter and some beautiful embellishments: some gorgeous flowers, 3 grapevine hearts, and some Prima paints and wax.

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

 

Next up is Michelle:

 

Next is Crystal:

 

I love how everyone 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 took the window arch and created an amazing piece to hold your earrings.

Crystal used some leftover paints and some of the chipboard to create this beautiful explosion vase.

Altered Heart with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my altered heart that I made using the February mixed media kit.  Here’s what’s in the kit:

And, here’s what I came up with:

Then I gave the burlap as well as the rest of the elements a whitewashed coat of gesso. Once primed, I added some of the Prima Sparks paints to the flowers, just lightly and repeatedly adding the paints using a fan brush until I got the coverage just right.

Next, I used a stippling brush to add the Prima gold wax.  I gave the wood and flowers more attention  that the layers of wood and burlap of the heart. You can see the gold in this closeup of the wicker hearts. I started the project by gluing and sewing everything to the heart.

To complete the project I added some details from my stash to adorn the inside of the Prima Memory Hardware shutters: the background paper is from this month’s scrapbook kit.  The quote is cut from a Prima notecard, and the corners are metal filagree.

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!

Valentine’s Day Treat/Gift Box Tutorial with Rae

Hi, everyone! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you may be looking for a fun way to give candy or small gifts to your friends. I’ve made these boxes many times for Christmas, birthdays, and any Valentine’s Day. I thought it would be fun to share how I made this box using the beautiful February scrapbook kit:

These boxes are pretty easy and quick to make, and it only takes 5 sheets of 12X12 paper and a few random supplies. These boxes can completely close, so you can’t go nuts adding a bunch of embellishments on the inside, so they are super cheap to make!

In this tutorial, you will see that I am using different paper from the kit, but the steps are the same for the box shown above.

Here’s what you will need:

  • 5 sheets of 12×12 paper
  • liquid glue
  • paper trimmer
  • ruler
  • pen or pencil
  • scissors

Optional:

  • extra embellishments for the top of the box
  • chalk ink
  • border punch

So, lets get started!

First, cut a sheet of paper for the base of the box 11 ¾ in. x 6 in. Pick a piece of paper that has a good or basic image so that the inside of the box base coordinates well with the papers you choose for the little boxes inside.

I think it’s easiest to fold the paper in half, then fold both edges into the middle crease.

For the lid of the box, choose paper that gives a nice contrast to the base- if the base is busy, choose something more plain and vice versa.

Next, choose the four sheets of paper for the four inside boxes.

Below is one of the pieces of paper for the inside of the box.

Chalk ink is optional, but it helps mask any folds in the paper where the paper creases show the white of the inside fibers of the papers.

I think that liquid glue works best for this because you may need move the boxes around a bit to make them align perfectly within the creases and edges of the base.  If you use double-sided tape and don’t set it down perfectly on the base, the boxes will not match up and the box won’t close right.

And, this is what the inside looks like after all of the boxes are glued to the base (this is from the boxes made with the February kit:

For added detail, you can add cut outs and border punch strips, but embellishments that are bulky won’t work out because then the box will not close.  Safe the bulky stuff for the outside of the box!

For this box, I added Lemoncraft cut outs to the front, and some of the Prima Say it in Crystals.

For the lid, I added lace and more crystals to the side, the gold heart pick, and some flowers from the kit to the top which you can see here:

These boxes are great for small candies, as long as they completely fit in the boxes.

If you have about 30 minutes, you can make these!

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!

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!

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!)

Tres Jolie Kit Club-January Mixed Media Kit-Calla Lily

Hello, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog!

For my third project this month I decided to make a Calla Lily Canvas using the final stencil of the pack that came in this months kit, all three paints, and the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

Calla Lily’s are my favorite flower! I just love them, and if the wild pigs hadn’t ate my blubs last fall (2018) I would have had some down by my pond this past spring (2019)! Now I have Calla Lily’s and the pigs can’t get to them!


Video:


DSC_0021-FRAMED DSC_0023-FRAMED

I used a 7”x14” canvas as my base, painted on a layer of the Prima “Silver Spoon,” then used the “Steampunk Copper” (from the kit!) with the diamond stencil from the Tim Holtz stencil set in this month’s Mixed Media Kit! I used the “Antique Coin” from the Prima three pack to paint the bottom of the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles and set them aside to dry.

DSC_0004-FRAMED DSC_0008-FRAMED
DSC_0010-FRAMED DSC_0015-FRAMED

I used the new Heartfelt Creations Calla Lily Stamps, Dies, and 3D Shaping mold (from my stash) to create all the flowers and leaves!

Here is a chart listing the color combos I used for the flowers and leaves.
