Your Story Matters Mixed Media Project with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made using the March Mixed Media Kit. These AB Studio large chipboard pieces are amazing! I think I’m going to need all of them! Here’s what I came up with:

One of the most impressive things about the large chipboard is it’s durability! I started out with sprinkling the Lindy mica powders from the kit in a random fashion, starting with the light colors and then using the darker ones all over the chipboard, leaving some parts without any. Then I sprayed the whole piece with water, saturating some sections, and not so much in other parts to create a marbled effect. I kept playing with this technique until I got the result I wanted, which resembles a distressed, somewhat patina metal like appearance.

The kit comes with several AB Studio cut out sheets, so I cut several of the images- navy map, music sheets, and an old picture, and assembled them for my focal point of the project.

Here you can see how I let the concentrated part of the micas stay somewhat dry, giving the chipboard a bit of texture.

I added the Prima Marketing velvet charms from the kit to the flower cluster. I used some blue wax paste to the Prima copper flowers to blend into the project. Some items on this project are from my stash- the metal pieces and the lace.

Lastly, I added more of the Prima velvet charms to some jump rings and attached them to hang at the bottom of the project.

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Lindy’s magical shakers and this amazing 12×12 chipboard circle from AB Studios. Also includes are several ephemera sheets for cut outs and a few other embellishments.

Here is the kit:

I love Lindy’s sprays, and I have worked with the magicals before. This was a fun project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I prime the chipboard piece before I used the magicals. I also used some copper and clear crackle paste (from my stash) on it prior to adding the magicals.

For the ephemera, I used lots of foam tape to give the layers some dimension. The same with the flowers and butterflies. The lace doilies are from the March Scrapbook kit.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the Lindy’s magicals:

“Love” Watercolor Panel with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a project I made with items from the scrapbook and mixed media kits. This is a small watercolor panel from my stash.

I started out by adding some stenciling, which I let dry completely, then sprayed with water, and while still wet, I added some of the blue Prima Marketing liquid watercolor. The panel was very wet, so I picked up the excess moisture with a paper towel, and hit it with a heat gun.

Next, I painted the Creative Embellishments heart chipboard pieces with  white gesso, then added the red liquid watercolor. Once dry, I added the black liquid watercolor to the panel and chipboard pieces, then quickly wiped it off with a paper towel to get a grungy, weathered result.

In this closeup you can see how well adding the black liquid watercolors created the distressed tones.

Next, I added the chipboard, as well as the rest of the embellishments, all from the kit except the clip. Lastly, I added some of the Prima Marketing metallique wax in turquoise satin to the entire piece.

Rattan Wreath with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing my project I made with the mixed media kit, featuring this rattan heart wreath and Prima Marketing liquid watercolors.

Here’s what I came up with:

I started out with using the blue (Bora Bora) watercolor on the wreath. I added a few drops to a spray bottle and added some water. I let each layer dry, and I increasingly added more of the watercolor to get varying shades of blue. Then, I added some of splats of the black watercolor. Lastly, I added some of the wax paste, and some lights from my stash.

Next I added a piece of chipboard from my stash. I painted it with white gesso, then again with the red watercolor. Once dry, I added some clear embossing powder, then added some more of the wax paste from the kit.

I also added some wax paste to a few of the flowers for a frosty look. Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

February Scrapbook Kit layout reveal by Annie

Hello everyone ! First of all : Happy Valentine’s Day !!!!  I thought this layout was perfect for the occasion ! It was made with the Scrapbook Kit.

I decided to make this layout more traditional with lots of details from the kit.  It was pretty simple to make.

The 1st thing I did was cutting different papers into 3×3.  I put a small peace of chipboard under all the peaces to create dimension.  After that I let my inspiration do all the rest.  I placed different peaces of Ephemera, feathers, flowers, chipboards that I painted Pink, and also the Black Resin peaces.  Lastly, I splashed some Black spray on the surface.

Here are some close-ups :

Mixed Media Monday (using the Tag Kit)

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing a mixed media canvas I created using the tag kit. I really stepped outside of my comfort zone with this kit.

This month’s card kit features the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and tags. Here is the kit:

 

So, I have never worked with these before. However, they are great for my niece. I created a canvas for her room. Here is my canvas:

I used the mermaid doll for the canvas. For the mixed media, I used items from past mixed media kits. I used the texture paste, watercolors and seashells from past Tres Jolie Kits (they can be found here).

Here are some close ups of the canvas:

I have never used watercolors on wood, so I learned a few things. Use less water to prevent color bleed. I got a bit of it, but hey I can live with it.  For the skin tone, I used my water color pencils. I think it turned out pretty decent for my first time.

The saying behind the frame is a 3×4 card from the Prima Zella Teal line (from my stash). The color was perfect for this.

For the background, I used the rust effect paste from a past kit in Fantasy. I used the powder blue to cover the canvas, then filled in with the purple and turquoise until I was happy.

The flowers and cheesecloth are from my stash. I filled in the floral cluster with some seashells and the other wooden accessories that came with the doll. I added a few melange pebbles, then lightly dusted over the flowers with the purple rust effects paint and called it done.

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.

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.

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.
