Clay Stud & Mixed Media Gift Tag

Happy Wednesday y’all!  Michelle here with another fun mixed media project from August’s kit!!

Today I thought I would show you a unique gifty item that is in my wheelhouse!  Jewelry!

I used the ReDesign Modeling Material by Prima to make these fun little stud earrings and made a mixed media tag from a ATC card to give them as a unique and thoughtful gift.  All the supplies I used were from either this kit or past mixed media kits!

Here are a couple of close ups but check out the little video below (it’s more of a slide show) with more details on a step by step of how this project came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you were inspired to create something beautiful today!

Mixed Media Gears Canvas

Happy Hump Day Y’all!!  I hope this post finds you well and y’all have been crafting and quarantining!  Today I’m sharing a mixed media canvas I made with my Mixed Media Kit this month

Can we take a moment to talk about these gears?  Whoa.  I mean, Amaz.  Yeah.  Anyway.

I started out by giving everything a good coat of black gesso.  Since I wanted this canvas to be full of texture and grit and a bit of glitz, I also added some texture yumminess from my art stash but you can absolutely pull this off with what you have in the kit.  You could possibly mix a bit of texture powder from last month’s kit in with the black gesso (or even a little sand) and get a similar grit.

I also sprinkled some of the glass glitter from last month’s kit as well.

I also used the metallic teal and gold to do some great aging effects on the gears.  It gave them the perfect patina.

I pressed the gears down into the wet texture paste and that is how I adhered them down to my canvas.

Using a pallet knife I applied more of the gold metallic paint across the canvas.  I just love the artsy effect it gave the piece.

Here is a short process video for you to see the piece in action!

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at this process and found it inspiring it to go and make something beautiful today!

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.

The Heart That’s Meant To Love You

So it’s the end of my mixed media kit and I’m still playing with all the yummy paints and chipboard!  LOL!  This week I got in my art journal and just played!

After I gessoed my journal page I reached for some gold crackle paste from my stash to give a good squishy layer to press that chipboard into to give it an embedded look.

Once I pressed the Creative Embellishments chipboard in I smoothed a bit of the paste over the top in a place or two to make the chipboard really feel like part of the page.

I set the page aside to let it dry overnight so the crackle could really emerge and develop.

Once the crackle developed and dried I got to work with all my mixed media goodies!

I pulled out the beautiful pink Prima acrylics in the February kit and lightly brushed them over the crazed page, even watering them down a bit to create a watercolor effect over the white portions of the page.

I dropped some black ink in areas and let it just find it’s way through the cracks and I inked the raised areas of the chipboard and the edges of the pages with a stamp pad.

I added back some of the gold shine by rubbing some areas with the gold prima wax.

Next I added some black graphite texture paste from my stash and sprinkled some gold glitter while it was still wet.

Finally I finished it all off with some emelishements, a cute Vintage Girl sticker raised with pop dots and a Tim Holtz paper doll die cut.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all do something beautiful today!!
