On Lock Down – Mixed Media Journal Page

Happy Thursday y’all!  Hopefully y’all are enjoying your April kit and finding fun projects to do with all the products in your Tres Jolie kits!!  This month I’m designing with the Mixed Media Kit and it has a ton of wonderful art mediums to work with!  I had to take full advantage of all that art yumminess in my art journal!

Today I’m working in my little fun journal as I call it.  It’s just a little cheap journal I bought in the art section at Walmart but it gives me the freedom to just do whatever in it.  It’s small, has a ton of pages and I don’t have to worry about messing anything expensive up.  So grab you a cheap journal, or even an old book for that matter and get started as a fun journal.

For this page I just enjoyed the process so I didn’t really take any pics during the process but I’ll fill you in on what I did.

I started out by coating the entire page with gesso.  Once I did that I had a good prepped canvas.

Next I grabbed a large stencil and the Lindys Magical Shaker in “Glittering Gold”.  I used a wet paint brush and dabbed it on, applying it almost like a water color, allowing some thick spots because I liked the color variation.  In the end the color ran quite a bit under the stencil and there were a few color specs mixed in that changed to the pink color but I really loved the effect it made and I embraced it!

After that dried well I mixed the 13 Arts Gesso with a generous amount of the Lindys Magical Shaker in the “Alpine Ice Rose” shade and added a good amount of the Prima Texture Powder and mixed well.  I smeared that mixture along the bottom corner of the page then sprinkled with a few lines of the shaker powders as well as the Darice Glitter Glass.

The lock and the letters are both chipboard pieces from my stash made by A Vintage Girl.  For the lock I simply rubbed it well with my black chipboard then rubbed it with the Glimmering Gold shaker powder and a little of some Prima gold wax from a previous kit.  I then added some of the bling stones that I cut from the Darice Sticker Roll.  I also painted the stones with some turquoise paint from my stash and rubbed them with some gold wax to tone them down and antique them a bit.

The chipboard letters were treated similarly with a black stamp pad and then rubbed with some aqua paint then the gold glimmer powder and gold wax rub.

Art Journal page

Hey guys, Kim here with another spread using our Cards, Tags and More kit. This is the beginning of the year, so why not start  (or continue to) creating in your art journal. This month we have more to create in the  Prima Daily Art Journal.

I’ve said this before, I am not much of an art journal(er), but it is coming together. 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 washi tape, a stencil,a yard of burlap, rice paper, metal trinkets and some watercolor.

Like before, 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:

“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:
