Hope by Annie Carignan

Hello friends !

I am here today to share another project made with this gorgeous Scrapbook Kit we have this March !

Here is a photo of everything included in the kit, isn’t it gorgeous and inspiring ?

I made this layout with a photo of my beautiful son, who is 13 now and he is the love of my life… of course my daughter is too, but you understand I’m sure 🙂 My son has had some challenges all his life, and will probably have more but I am hopeful and proud. I know that no matter what, he will shine and be a wonderful man.  I love him and always am there for him and I know he will get through it.  Ok, let’s get back to scrapbooking shall we ?

As you can see, I used 2 different papers for the background.  I did not use any mediums for this layout, I did not think I needed too. I added some layers of die cuts, ephemeras, chipboard and flowers.  I really kept it simple.

Here is a closer look :

Beautiful confidence by Annie

Hello everyone!

I am sharing today a layout made with March Scrapbook Kit :

I was in love with this paper ! I cut out the bottom and put it on a beautiful flower background (this was done only at the end) . I put a coat of clear gesso first, than used a stencil with Modeling Paste.  As you can see on the photo, I took some Mint paint from my stash (Art Alchemy from Prima) and mixed it with water.

As you can see here, I used other colors too after putting different flowers from the kit.

So many possibilities with these Mintay Papers !! You can cut out so many Ephemeras, ATC’s and flowers, I love that !

There are also gorgeous Ephemeras from Prima which I used as a title.

The word confidence is from a Prima sticker sheet also included in the kit.

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 :

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.

 

 

 

Kit Content :

Rattan Heart
Concentrate Watercolor Fire Brick
Concentrate Watercolor Onyx
Concentrate Watercolor Bora Bora

Life is wonderful by Annie

Hello everyone!  Sharing today my last layout for this month’s kit.  I decided to create a layout with contrasting bright colors.  What I did was pretty simple actually : I teared up some papers and adhered them on the back,  put a coat of clear Gesso on everything and then I used some paints (Mint and Purple).

I cut the chipboard frame from Creative Embellishments in 2 pieces and coloured them with the chalk ink Purple. I placed them on top and on the bottom of my photo.

I added gorgeous Prima flowers, Lavender Frost tickets and the resin hearts included in the kit as a finishing touch.

Here are some close-ups :

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.

Cards, Tags and more by Annie Carignan

Hello !! Have you seen this beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit this month? It is filled with beautiful products from Prima.  You have plenty of supplies to create beautiful projects like mini-albums, tags, ATC’s, cards, Art Journal spreads, layouts,  the possibilities are endless !

I like to go out of my comfort zone once in a while so I decided to create ATC’s, something I haven’t done very often !  So I chose the 3×4 wood ATC cards.

Here is the kit :

A new year has begun and every January, I always like to look forward and try to make new resolutions for the upcoming months.  That is why I chose to create 4 ATC’s with positive quotes on them.  I will put them where everyone can see them in the house, because they are good for my kids too.

I chose a different 6×6 paper for every ATC and adhered on the wood.  I wanted to put some watercolor on them so I put a coat of clear Gesso on the paper.  I cut out some of the Darice on all 4 and then put some flowers, art titles printery and resin embellishments. The quotes are from my stash. If you would like to do something similar and you don’t have word stickers, you can always type them in Word, print them and cut them.

LOVE by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !!

I am sharing today a layout made with January’s Scrapbook Kit. It is beautiful and so romantic, I just loved playing with it !  There are so many possibilities with this kit ! Layouts, cards, mini-albums, Project Life, whatever you want.

Here is a little walk through of my background process : As you can see, I chose a flower stencil with paste but any stencil can do the trick and you  can use any paste, light, medium, heavy, clear or white, doesn’t matter : as long as you add texture.

I used my watercolors with water to add color and splashes. As you can see on the photo, I cut out some flowers from some of the papers.  Big flowers on a paper can sometimes be overwhelming for some people, but don’t be scared to cut them out to use them as an embellishment.  That is what I did by adding them to the layout with 3D foams under to add thickness.

I also like to add splashes of White Gesso mixed with water.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

I created tags with papers in the kit :

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.
