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!

November Tres Jolie Kits – Mixed Media–Pumpkin Stack

Hello everyone! I’m up on the blog today sharing my pumpkin stack that I created as one of my Guest Design Team projects for Tres Jolie Kits, using the November Mixed Media Kit!

27-Framed

I loved the turquoise, Inka-Gold paint from Viva Décor that came in this months kit! It has a nice, smooth paste-like consistency, that can be put on with your finger or a brush straight from the container! Or, you can do as I did, and add some to a misting bottle with some of the Prima® Silver Mica Powder, also found in the November kit, and make your own shimmer-y, glimmer-y mist! I used my homemade mist on the flowers.


Watch me here:


41-Framed

One of my favorite product types in the mixed media world is any type of “crackle” product, so I was more than happy to see the bottle of DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint in the November kit, and I couldn’t help but put a nice thick layer on my pumpkin stack after coating it with some clear gesso.

36-Framed

After my crackle paint dried I added some of the turquoise paint, trying to create an Ombre effect on the pumpkins. I then used a mesh/net bag (that the little pumpkins came in) to wrap the stack, using some jute twine at each layer.

29-Framed

I let my homemade mist soak into my flowers some, then, after they were dry, I used some gel medium to attach them to the pumpkin stack.

30-Framed 31-Framed

28-Framed

For the finishing touches I added some sisel fibers for some added texture, and finished them off by brushing on some Glossy Accents and a sprinkling of the glitter from this months kit!

November Tres Jolie Kits – Mixed Media–Altered Paintbrush

Hello everyone! I’m up on the blog today sharing my altered paintbrush that I created for my Guest Design Team project for Tres Jolie Kits, using the November Mixed Media Kit!

28-Framed

I loved the turquoise, Inka-Gold paint from Viva Décor that came in this months kit! It has a nice, smooth paste-like consistency, that can be put on with your finger or a brush straight from the container; or you can water it down as I did when I added it to the brush!


Watch me here:


39-Framed

One of my favorite product types in the mixed media world is any type of “crackle” product, so I was more than happy to see the bottle of DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint in the November kit! I had added gesso to the paintbrush quite a few months ago, and when I put the gesso on the heart I added more, just because I had some extra.

On top of the gesso I added a nice, thick layer of the DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint. I let the crackle paint air dry before adding the turquoise Inka-Gold paint, that I watered down so it would really get into the cracks. I used a heat gun to dry the brush enough to move, but I let it finish air drying because the brush bristles can’t take too much heat!

35-Framed

I used some gel medium to attach the Prima® flowers that came in the kit this month, and before I added the heart, I used the Prima® Silver Mica Powder from the kit to make my own glimmer-y, shimmery mist that I sprayed all over the flowers and brush!

44-Framed

For the heart, after the gesso dried, I just started using my finger to rub on some of the turquoise paint. I also knew I wanted to add some of the mica powder so I sprinkled some on. In the end the paint and the mica just got mixed together with some water! Then I sprinkled more mica on it all to give it “lumps.” (All of this is probably easier to “explain” in the video!)

I let the mix air dry, which gave the water mixture time to pool, allowing the paint to create its own shading. After all of that was dried I sprayed the heart with Mod Podge Glossy Acrylic Sealer to keep the mica [lumps] from rubbing off. After the sealer had dried I, more or less, painted some Ranger Glossy Accents on the heart and gave it a light coating of the glitter from the kit.

For “timeless” I just used my fingers to rub on some of the turquoise paint straight on the chipboard (no gesso) then glued it down with some JudiKins Diamond Glaze.

November Tres Jolie Kits – Mixed Media – Altered Wings

Hello everyone! I’m up on the blog today sharing my altered wings, Guest Design Team project for Tres Jolie Kits, using the November Mixed Media Kit!

14-Framed

Before I added any mediums I separated the layers of “feathers” and used a little pair of jewelry wire wrapping pliers to add some random curls to random feathers. I didn’t have a plan, I just picked a feather and curled!


Watch me here:


20-Framed

I loved the turquoise, Inka-Gold paint from Viva Decor that came in this months kit, as you can probably tell from these wings! I found a way to use it just about everywhere! I added it to the wings, the pieces behind the flowers, and I watered it down to add to three of the kraft colored flowers from the 16 piece Prima® flower set that also came in the November Mixed Media Kit.

21-Framed

One of my favorite product types in the mixed media world is any type of “crackle” product, so I was more than happy to see the bottle of DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint in the November kit! After gluing my various Prima® Trinkets together (which I might add, all came from previous Tres Jolie kits!) with some E6000® I added a layer of gesso, let it air dry, and followed with a nice, thick layer of the DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint. I let the Crackle Paint air dry before adding the turquoise Inka-Gold paint.

22-Framed

I didn’t gesso the Creative Embellishments chipboard piece because I wanted the natural brown to come through to go with the rustic feel of the wings. I just used water and the silver mica powder by Prima® from the kit, to give a random coating.

25-Framed

For the final touches I gave a light dusting of the glitter from the kit by brushing on some Ranger® Glossy Accents on the Trinkets, chipboard, and flowers before sprinkling on the glitter.

19-Framed 24-Framed
23-Framed 26-Framed

27-Framed

Here you can see how I used the Inka-Gold paint to complement the patina that came on the wings. I didn’t want to cover all of the patina effect, but I also wanted the wings to “match” my flower cluster a little.

Mini-album with Scrapbook Kit by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

Today, I am presenting a mini-album I made with the Scrapbook Kit.  I had done a mini-album a few years ago with a similar collection that was for boys.  That is why I decided to do the same, but this time, with pictures of my daughter 🙂 (Check out the small walk through at the end).

This is what inspired me :

 

I took a 12×12 paper from the kit trimmed half of it.  I took a stencil from my stash and some Paste to cover the surface.

 

Once that was dry, I took the inks included in the kit mixed with water and put some on the paper.  Since it was a little bit pale, I decided to add some darker watercolour.

I cut that peace of paper in half, making 2 3×12 strips.  I folded every 3 inch and used washi tape to put the 2 peaces together doing an accordeon.  I ended up doing another strip because I had too many photos !

 

On every page, I used peaces of different papers from the kit, I used a square punch and a circle punch.  I cut out some shoes from a paper and also words you can find on the bottom strips of the 12×12 papers.  I used some flowers too.  The title of the album was made with letter dies.

Here is the final result :
