Tres Jolie Kit Club–October Scrapbooking Kit & Sketch

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

This week I’m bringing you my sketch challenge project using this month’s scrapbooking kit. I didn’t do a whole lot to my layout, because I really loved all the detail in the beautiful Blue Fern Studio’s paper and I just couldn’t bring myself to “covering it up”!

Check out the video below to see the simple steps I took to put this layout, featuring a photo of my great-grandmother, together!

Have you seen this month’s sketch? It’s a beauty!​​

Here is the original sketch: And here is how I rotated it:

Now, how about a few close-ups?

Here you can see how that Shimmerz has just a touch of sparkle to it and pools around the crackle paste, giving a touch of color that goes along with the pinkish-purple of the flowers.​​

Using one of the 49 & Market flower packs found in the kit this month I created three clusters, and under each cluster, I added some extra detail from some fussy cut flowers and lace from another sheet of the Blue Fern Studios paper. Then, for some more detail, I added some texture pebbles and glass glitter from my stash.

I added three layers of Baked Texture (from my stash) to the large chipboard frame found in this month’s kit, added my photo, and used some corrugated cardboard to lift it from the page some so a couple of the flowers could get tucked underneath.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items found in this month’s Scrapbooking Kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Moodboard-Scrapbooking Kit

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

Today I’m bringing you a rather thick junk journal I created using the papers, frames, tag, and resin pieces that came in this month’s scrapbooking kit.

DSC_0004-FRAMED

I was inspired by Wendy’s Journal Adventure’s “The Caring Gardner Botanical Journal.” I don’t even know what I was looking for when I came across the video, but I loved how the first and last signatures were dedicated to pockets and flip-outs with the middle signatures dedicated to the pages to write on; I had always seen journals with the pocket and flip-out pages intermingled with the writing pages. I also loved the corrugated cardboard she used on the inside covers, which reminded me I had some KaiserCraft Corrugated Sheets from the October 2019 Tres Jolie Scrapbooking Kit. Check out a few photos, found below the flip-through video, to see how some of the pages are laid out.

Tres Jolie Kit Club – *Follow Along With Us* – July Mixed Media Kit – A Day At the Beach

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

Today I’m bringing you my first project for this month using the Mixed Media Kit. Recently, we have had some requests for more detailed instructions for the projects we create, so last month we started the “Follow Along With Us” series, where each month we will focus on a different kit and create a project using only items from that kit, staple items (i.e. glues), and/or household items (ex: isopropyl [rubbing] alcohol). For this project, I created a video to follow along with and I hope I didn’t overexplain or underexplain anything!

DSC_0081-FRAMED

Because alcohol inks dry so quickly, this was a rather quick project to put together! I just grabbed up my gel medium to adhere the flowers and photo, which I mounted on some cardboard for rigidity, and my rubbing alcohol that works well as an alcohol ink blending solution.

Check out my video for the full details and process, and make it with me!


Now, how about some close-ups?

DSC_0085-FRAMED

The top of the larger flower cluster on the left of the photo. You can also see some of the blending between the three alcohol inks, and the splattering of the “Snow Cap” Mixative.

DSC_0095-FRAMED

A close-up of the blending for the sky. As you can see, the splatters give a sense of depth depending on how much the “Snow Cap” reactivated the color behind it.

DSC_0097-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this project and it helped you in using the items from the kit this month! Make sure you keep an eye out each month for more of our “Make It With Us” videos and/or written instructions! I’ll be back next week with my project using that beautiful art deco chipboard from A.B. Studio.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit-Paddle

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

For my first project this month I am sharing with you what I made using the unfinished paddle from this month’s kit!
DSC_0017_FRAMED

As you can see, I also used the mediums, transparency, butterflies, and one of the frames from the kit to put my board together.
Check out how I did it with this video!


Video:


DSC_0023_FRAMED

I mixed some of the 13@rts Olive Green paint with the 13@rts Gel Medium, both from the kit, and stenciled the mixture on in a few spots.

DSC_0021_FRAMED DSC_0020_FRAMED

The sketched leaves are from the Silhouette store, but you don’t need this specific file to recreate the look! You could hand-draw your own design, use stamps, or fussy cut a nice patterned paper!

DSC_0025_FRAMED

I used a thick layer of the Gel Medium on the frame so it would hold the frame and the stems down. For the leaves that didn’t get caught under the frame, I went back and used some Art Glitter Glue to attach them. I also used little dabs of the Gel Medium to hold on the butterflies!

DSC_0016_FRAMED

I absolutely love how my paddle came out! And it wasn’t overly complicated! I spent more time waiting for things to dry than I did putting together!

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this months mixed media kit! Make sure you subscribe to our blog and YouTube Channel so you can always be kept up-to-date on kit releases and sample projects!
