Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge!

DSC_0057-FRAMED

I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.

Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!

I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!

The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

March Mood Board Monday and Challenge Winner

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the March 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It has really pushed me past my comfort zone.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the March mood board. I love the color scheme of it all.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I did a lot of fussy cutting from the transparency sheet that is included in the kit. I love how the black show up on the green.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous chipboard frame. I embossed it using some vintage green embossing powder. It has flecks of gold in it that match perfectly. I used a combination of flowers from the kit and a few from my stash.

Now on to our sketch challenge winner from February.

This was the sketch:

 

Congratulations to our winner:

Donna Bailey Sergent

Here is her winning layout:

Donna did an amazing job following the sketch and who could resist that adorable face. Your prize will be in with your next kit.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–February Sketch Inspiration

After coating the papers in gesso, I stamped, stenciled, and inked before adding the embellishments and photo.

My final touch was to cover the photo then use a paintbrush to splatter and drop some “Black Soot” Distress paint on the whole project.

Memories Layout with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my last project that I have made with the February scrapbook kit. This layout features my favorite sheet of paper from the kit. It’s one of those papers that looks amazing all on its own! So, I knew that when I used it, I wasn’t going to add mixed media techniques, and it was going to be a sort of palette-cleansing project so that that beautiful piece of paper would stand out in the design. This is what I came up with: I adore the wood image with peeling paint or wall paper maybe!

The only treatment that the paper got was some “swervy” cutting along the edges, and some brown chalk ink on the edges.  You can see a closeup of this below: 

The Creative Embellishments heart chain pieces are so lovely!  I embossed them with Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in shabby white.  I also used a piece of chipboard from my stash- I added some white gesso, then inked it with green chalk ink, and then I dry brushed some pink wax on it.

I kept the flower clusters pretty simple, adding some white gesso to the flowers and leaves.  I also added some of the Prima “Say it in Crystals” from the kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Keep an eye out for some sneaks for our March kits!

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-January Mood Board-Symphony of Love

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I am sharing with you a piece I created using the January Scrapbooking Kit, inspired by this months mood board! (See below!)

In the above photos you can see where I added the “Daffodil” Shimmerz Creameez & “Milled Lavender” Distress Oxide Spray!

For the lattice behind the shutters I added some “Buttercup” Embossing Powder from my stash to one of the Creative Embellishment pieces found in this months kit! And the bird? One I had left from the December 2019 Scrapbooking Kit!

DSC_0020_FRAMED

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!)
