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 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.

Chicken Wire Shadowbox with Rae

Hello there. Today I am sharing my project that I made with the January Mixed Media kit, featuring this 12X12 Chicken Wire Shadowbox, A variety of of paints, including a weathered wood crackle medium, lovely Prima Marketing and Darice flowers, and some gorgeous chipboard elements from Creative Embellishments.

Here’s what I came up with.

I started out by using the purple paint on the wood box. Then I added the crackle medium. Once dry, I added the silver paint which gave the texture of random crackle on the box. Then, I lightly added some more of the purple and silver paints, basically giving it a bit of a dry brushing. Before it dried, I wiped off the paint with a baby wipe, and finished it by adding some purple chalk inks for some variety in color.

Next, I took a piece of the 49 and Market paper from the kit and hand drew a heart to cut out. Then I added some faux stitching with a sewing wheel and black marker. I also added some black lace from my stash around the heart.

Next, I used embossing powders to the chipboard quote and glued it on to the paper. Then I added the flowers from the kit. I had an extra pack of the white Prima Marketing flowers from the kit in my stash, so I used a few from that pack as well.

Lastly, I used embossing powders on the Creative Embellishments chipboard doily, cut it in half, and placed the halves on opposite corners of the shadowbox. I used the remaining purple flowers and a couple of the flowers from the scrapbook kit on the doily pieces.

End result:

Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Noel Plaque by Ginny

Hello all, 

This week I’m sharing with you my project created with the December Mixed Media Kit from TRES JOLIE KITS.

I loved this project and had so much fun creating it. I added a few different techniques to it.

I wanted to create a shabby/weathered look to the plaque.

Lets have a look!


Here is a quick photo guide on the process…..

I firstly gave the plaque a coat of the green paint.

I dried this with a heat tool to speed the process up. 

Next I covered the plaque with a thick layer of the off white paint. 

Then Dried it. 

When fully dry I rubbed over places of it with some sand paper to rub back though the layers to reveal the green paint and the wood underneath. 

I then used some crackle medium from my stash in three patches on the plaque. The crackle medium I used does takes a good 24/48 hours to crack and dry but the wait is worth it.

The ‘believe’ I painted with the red paint and then when dry covered in the crackle medium again. Thick in places to crack and not so in others – this is where it looks a bit white where there isn’t the layer of medium to crack but I like the effect.

when dry and cracked I rubbed over the Opal Magic so that it filled the cracks. This really accentuated the cracks, I loved the way it turned out! 

I added the Opal Magic to the crackle patches on the plaque too!

Next some fussy cutting from the papers in the main Scrapbook Kit.

This was the base to main design. I used hot glue to fix one of the floral embellishments, as this a big piece to fix firmly.

I added a lovely gold mesh bow to the back of the floral piece.

The second floral embellishment piece I cut up so I could create a smaller cluster….

…..And made this arrangement on the opposite side of the ‘believe’.

I added the fake snow around the floral cluster by dropping it into wet glue and leaving it to dry and then shaking the excess off after when dry.

I finished off by rubbing some Viva Ink Gold around the edges of the ‘believe’ and the outside edges of the plaque and dropping some of the glitter on to the background that had fell off the floral embellishments….. I never waste anything!!! 

Here are some close ups of the finished project.

15th Anniversary from Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!! December kit is here and I am super excited to share my creations for this month.  December is a special month for us because first of all, my husband and I met in December, there is Christmas of course AND my daughter was born in December.

This background paper reminded me of our wedding because we got married in the Winter but also because my dress and the groom’s accessories had light blue in them.  This was the perfect kit for Winter photos :). We will celebrate our 15th Anniversary in January so why not do a layout about that day 🙂

This is a pretty simple layout where I did not use a lot of mediums except some splashes of White Gesso on the background and some gel to fix the snow and the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit.

I used different layers of paper behind the photo and lots of Pearls.  I used the Holly and Berry Border from Creative Embellishments that I painted White.  I just love the little Shovel !!!

I loved adding the Art Sugar everywhere, I think it adds great texture and color to the layout.

November kit 4th reveal by Annie Carignan

 

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today my fourth project for this month.  The focus on this layout is the beautiful resin frame from Prima which is included in the Mixed Media kit.

I coated some clear Gesso on this White 12×12 cardstock. Then I used stencil from the mixed media and Modeling Paste.  I stamped the background with ABStudio stamp and put some color with aquarelle paint from my stash.

I cut different peaces of flowers, leaves and clocks from what I had left over from the scrapbook kit and added them under the photo as well as peaces of chipboard that I painted white.

I used some of the Finnabair glaze on the frame and art stones to create texture.

Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone Kim here, today I am sharing my project I made with with Mixed Media Kit. If you don’t know about our mixed media kits, let me tell you about them. The kit is filled with not only mediums, but a project so you can use our kits right out of the box.

Here is our November Mixed Media kit. It is filled with the new Icing paste medium from Prima.  It also includes 3 sizes of embroidery hoops and canvas. You can create your own mixed media hoops. You can subscribe to our kits here.

Check out the kit:

Here is what I created using the kit:

How about some close ups:

Lets talk about the background first. After I put the canvas on the hoops and decided on which side I wanted to work on, I took the stencil and the icing paste paste to make the background. Once that was done, I began deciding how I wanted to arrange my hoops.

Once I had the arrangement set up I glued my hoops together. While the hoops were drying, I heat embossed my chipboard piece.

I then decided to add a doily behind my frame before I attached it. I just wanted something peeking out behind it.

Now it was time to start embellishing my hoops. I moved my flowers all around until I was happy with the groupings. I made sure I used some dimensional tape under some flowers so they pop off the project. Plus it makes it easier to tuck bits and pieces under them.

After all the big embellishment were done, I started adding all the little details that really make your project. I used a butterfly and some floral ribbon from my stash. The sentiments are also from my stash.

Hope you liked my little explanation of my Mixed Media Monday project.

We still have some kits available, so stop by here and subscribe. We also have individual kits for sale here. Also, Our Black Friday sale is still going on. You can try our past kits for 40% off. Here is the link to check out what’s still available
