“Stop” June Art Journal

Hey guys, Kim here with another video tutorial using our Cards, Tags and More kit. This is the second month that we are featuring an art journal. We have more to create in the  Prima Daily Art Journal.

Like I said last month,  I am not much of an art journal(er). This was completely outside of the box for me. In the end I have to say I am very happy with the results.

 

Let’s take a look at what’s in the kit this month:

The kit contains a full set of stamps, a stencil, ink and vintage stickers. It also includes some metal clips and the daily sentiments as extra embellishments.

Again, the best part about this kit is I don’t need a lot of time to be creative with it. The journal card gives me the prompt and I can get right to work. Perfect if I am feeling creative, but don’t have a lot of time.

It also gives me a canvas to try new things and not worry about “messing up” whole sheets of paper or full packs of embellishments. It’s the perfect size canvas to just let your creative self go.

Here are my next set of completed pages:

 

Like I said, I am really happy with how they turned out.

Here is a video of my process:

“Open the Door” Art Journal tutorial

Hey guys, Kim here with a video tutorial using our Cards, Tags and More kit. This month we have something along the more side of this kit. It’s an art journal. We have the Prima Daily Art Journal kit and some embellishments.

I must admit, I am not much of an art journal(er). This was completely outside of the box for me. In the end I have to say I am very happy with the results and look forward to bringing you more content on this kit.

 

Let’s first take a look at the kit:

The kit contains the full Art Journal kit which has 58 pieces (journal, insert and journal prompt cards). It also includes some metal clips and the daily sentiments as extra embellishments.

What I have come to love about this kit is I don’t need a lot of time to be creative with it. The journal card gives me the prompt and I can get right to work. Perfect if I am feeling creative, but don’t have a lot of time.

It also gives me a canvas to try new things and not worry about “messing up” whole sheets of paper or full packs of embellishments. It’s the perfect size canvas to just let your creative self go.

Here are my first completed pages:

 

Like I said, I am really happy with how they turned out.

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Prima Marketing  texture paste and this cute 4×4 canvas. Also included is a resin frame, black gesso and the brand new Finnabair rice paper sheets.

Here is the kit:

I love the texture paste, and I have worked with them  before. This was a fun, but messy project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers, resin and lace from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the texture paste:

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Lindy’s magical shakers and this amazing 12×12 chipboard circle from AB Studios. Also includes are several ephemera sheets for cut outs and a few other embellishments.

Here is the kit:

I love Lindy’s sprays, and I have worked with the magicals before. This was a fun project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I prime the chipboard piece before I used the magicals. I also used some copper and clear crackle paste (from my stash) on it prior to adding the magicals.

For the ephemera, I used lots of foam tape to give the layers some dimension. The same with the flowers and butterflies. The lace doilies are from the March Scrapbook kit.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the Lindy’s magicals:

Mixed Media Monday (using the Tag Kit)

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing a mixed media canvas I created using the tag kit. I really stepped outside of my comfort zone with this kit.

This month’s card kit features the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and tags. Here is the kit:

 

So, I have never worked with these before. However, they are great for my niece. I created a canvas for her room. Here is my canvas:

I used the mermaid doll for the canvas. For the mixed media, I used items from past mixed media kits. I used the texture paste, watercolors and seashells from past Tres Jolie Kits (they can be found here).

Here are some close ups of the canvas:

I have never used watercolors on wood, so I learned a few things. Use less water to prevent color bleed. I got a bit of it, but hey I can live with it.  For the skin tone, I used my water color pencils. I think it turned out pretty decent for my first time.

The saying behind the frame is a 3×4 card from the Prima Zella Teal line (from my stash). The color was perfect for this.

For the background, I used the rust effect paste from a past kit in Fantasy. I used the powder blue to cover the canvas, then filled in with the purple and turquoise until I was happy.

The flowers and cheesecloth are from my stash. I filled in the floral cluster with some seashells and the other wooden accessories that came with the doll. I added a few melange pebbles, then lightly dusted over the flowers with the purple rust effects paint and called it done.

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.

Prima Marketing – Printery Mulberry Paper 6 x6 paper pad

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.

Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.
