November Mixed Media Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our November Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has these amazing metal wings to alter as the project.

There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three embroidery hoops, some canvas fabric, and some beautiful embellishments: a Prima resin frame and flowers, and some Creative Embellishments chipboard flourishes.

 

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

Next up is Michelle:

Now here is my project:

I love how we all 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 used some leftover crackle paste and inka gold to alter this pumpkin.

Crystal used her wooden heart to be the anchor for another project. I also spy some kit flowers, inka gold, glitter and mica mist.That cute title came from a past kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Make sure you come back, we are revealing our December kit very soon.

AND, we are having a  Sale RIGHT NOW! Check it out!

Use Your Wings Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone, Kim here sharing my Mixed Media project created with the November Mixed Media kit.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of different mediums. We have  some crackle paste, some dry glitter, mica powder and some inka gold. Also included is are some flowers to alter. Everything needed to alter the metal wings included in the kit.

Here is the kit:

These wings were so fun to create with.

Here is my project:

I started with the wooden heart in the kit. I gave it a nice heavy coat of the crackle paste and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I wiped the high points with the inka gold, then gave it a spritz with mist I made from the mica powder.

For the wings, I went over the high points with the inka gold. The I added glue to the tips and sprinkled them with the dry glitter for some shimmer.

For the flowers, I took a few of the script ones and swiped them with the inka gold. Then I used the mist and sprayed all the flowers for a good dose of shimmer. It’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but they really shine in person. The blue flowers are from the scrapbook kit. They added just the right punch of color. The wings, I mad from a mold and just sprayed them with the mist.

Once all that was done, I just put it all together. Once I got the vision in my heard as what I wanted to do, this came together pretty quickly (except for drying time, LOL).

Remember to stay tuned to the blog  for more inspiration using the our kits. We will be revealing the December kit soon.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November Mood Board

DSC_0001-FRAMED

For me a “scrapbooking kit” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to be making scrapbook pages! Sometimes I just can’t resist using (almost) everything up in one project, like the junk journal I made for this month mood board!

Sounds of Autumn Interactive Cards

 

Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here again sharing a couple of interactive cards that I created using the beautiful papers from the Cards, Tags,  & more,

This collection was my 1st one that I’ve had the opportunity to work with and I must say that out of all of what I used I was able to make a variety of multiple projects plus I also have a lot left over for future projects!

             

I really loved the cut outs and tags the A4 collection packet. With these I got the idea to make them interactive. The card on the left has the sentiment that translates the Italian words into, ” Autumn is the second spring when each leaf is a flower”, and the one on the right says ” Among all the leaves of autumn, I can recognize the only one that, instead of falling, has tried to fly”.

        

I began by cutting one of the 12×12 kraft card stock that came in the Cards, Tags,  & more  November kit. I chose to make my cards 5×7 & 4 1/4 X 5, so I cut my card stock , one at 10×7 and the other 8 1/2 X 5 and scored it which my martha stewert scoreboard and tool on  5 and 4 1/4. (photos show only one card but instructions are for both, process for both cards are basically the same)

       

I picked out 2 different designs from the paper collection and trimmed it  1/8 th of an inch less all around than the kraft base. I also have cut out 6 cut out tags for both cards and the one with the sentiment in the center of the card first, on the other two I left about an 1/8th of an inch lip on the edges of these tags. The only one that I did cut at the exact lines was the center on. Once these other two are cut you will score and fold them to where they will fit on the edge of the center one, once you have done this you can adhere them to the one that will be one the center on the back then adhere it to the design paper on you base.

     

I hope that I have explained that correctly and that you understand what I was hoping these would turn out like. You just need to end up with the sides being able to open to expose the center sentiments of the card.

 

I then just added ribbon one one and twine on the other for the closure and cut up also a different color card stock for the inside.  If you do want to try to create this but don’t understand my instructions, please feel free to contact me thru social media or my email which is rodriguezjeanne72@yahoo.com & I can try to explain it better. It isn’t hard at all.

I do hope that you enjoyed my very first tutorial for Tres Jolie and that you will give it a try if you purchased this kit. These make great greeting cards with a beautiful secret sentiment inside the center.

See you all soon!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne

Dancing in the leaves

Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here up on the blog, I’m back this week with a couple tags that I really enjoyed creating. Using the beautiful kit from the Cards, Tags, And More, I was truly inspired to keep the tags intact and not cut them smaller.

I love stamped images and don’t have a whole lot of them but the ones I do have I love to paper piece & if you have never tried it, I suggest u do especially if your intimidated by coloring images as I am. I do color the skin using Spectrum Noir Copic Markers. Aside from the cute Gorjuss girl images I layered papers from the kit on one of the tags as well as using the packaging from some Prima Marketing flowers from the kit on another tag.

 

       

Here are some photos I took as I was creating these, I applied Nuvo Mousse, colors Custard CreamToasted Almond  on the edges of the tags. I then added some of the papers from the kit. I used lace from the kit, I cut out some sentiments from one of the papers , some of the Prima leaves packet from the kit and other embellishments you might see on my tags.

These were super fun to create & if you would like to learn how to paper piece these or other stamped images, I am happy to do a tutorial or you can find many on YouTube. I do hope that you like what I have created with this beautiful kit from Tres Jolie. Continue reading “Dancing in the leaves”
