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:

January Mixed Media Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our January Mixed Media kit. Each month we offer a mixed media kit that has an assortment of mixed media and tools, AND a project to make with them. As you can see in the picture below, this month’s kit has these amazing metal wings to alter as the project.

There is enough of these products to use on multiple projects, not just the project included in the kit! Also included are a set of three wooden panels and some beautiful embellishments: a set of Tim Holtz stencils, a floral vine, and some Prima melange pebbles.

Let’s look at some of the projects created with this kit. First up is Crystal:

Next up is Michelle:

 

I love how everyone started with the same materials, but ended up with totally different looks.If you want to see how Crystal and Michelle created their projects, just head over to our Youtube channel for a step by step video.

Because our kits are packed with full size products, there are always leftover after you complete your project. Let’s look at what Michelle and Crystal created with their leftovers:

Crystal used some leftover paints and the stencil.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Make sure you come back, we are revealing our December kit very soon.

AND, we are having a  Sale RIGHT NOW! Check it out!

Art Journal Cover

Hey guys, Kim here with another project using our Cards, Tags and More kit. We’ve been creating on the inside of our Art Journal, so don’t you think it’s about time we do the cover?

I just kinda had fun with the cover, no real direction other than I wanted to use some crackle paste (from a paste MM kit) on the cover and to use the watercolors.

First off, 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.

Here is my completed cover:

I placed all my trinkets down where I wanted them (I added a few extra from my stash). Then I covered the entire front only with white crackle paste (including the trinkets0. I went really heavy in some spots for a bigger, deeper crackle effect.

Here is a tip with crackle paste. Once it starts to dry and crack, you can use your heat tool to speed up the process. Just don’t hold it too close.

I added watercolor, with a watercolor pen (dried between each color). Then I dug deep into my lost flower collection to find a few flowers to add. Once placed I added some art pebbles. For the final touch I did a bit of stamping and then I went over the high points and edges with antique gold wax paste.

I am extremely happy with how it turned out.

How about some close ups:

Cuteness, Sweet and Adorable layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. I am back sharing another layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. This kit is just to die for. It’s so shabby chic.

Here is another look at the kit:

Here is the layout I created with it:

How about some close-ups:

I also used a combo of flowers, both are from the kit. I have lots of bits and bobs from my leftover tray I keep on my desk. That’s a piece of a die cut under the floral cluster. The title words and resin shutter are also from my stash. Everything got a rub of wax paste from a past kit.

I tore the top layer of paper to expose the sheet beneath. I wanted to play off of both textures. I added some stamping and stenciling to add more dimension.

I used some leftover lace under my photo. I also used my metallic pastel accents (from a previous kit) to add some extra color. You can also see more of the stamping. Topped off with some art stones and I was done.

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so lovely. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. I know I say this almost every month, but this is becoming one of my favorite kits of 2020 (wink).

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the January mood board. I love the shabby chicness of this kit.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I embossed the chipboard using vintage gold embossing powders. This was from my stash. The Window arch is from the kit, the swirl is from my stash. I also used a combo of flowers. The pink flowers are from the kit. The purple ones are from my stash.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous pink floral cluster. Plus more of the chipboard piece that was embossed.I layered some paper, a doily and tag under the photo. I added a resin photo corner.

I added a small amount of stamping to blend in with the background of the paper. Used some phrase stickers and it was done.

This is me…. by Ginny

This is the last post for January from me….. and for Tres Jolie, at the moment for personal reasons I need more time at home with my family… but I will greatly miss designing for Kim and Tres Jolie Kits and I’m so pleased I was able to help her get this wonderful scrapbook club off the ground. I am sure it will go from strength to strength, the contents of these kits are always so beautiful and well thought out with fabulous coordinating embellishments to go with the papers, all the latest goodies to play with and a whole load of new friends to chat to… what more could you want?
I will still be following all the wonderful creations from the designers and the subscribers… so happy scrapping!!

My layout this time is using the Prima Marketing Lavender Frost papers.

 

 

I loved all the papers in this kit so much I’ve been trying to use as many of them as possible, so hense all the layering! All edges heavily distressed as always!
I spritzed some mist on the background with my favourite mist Crème de Rouge from Glimmer Mists.

 

 

I added a lace bow from my stash to ‘fill’ out the flower embellishment.

 

And added the 7 gypsies Ornate Garden Stakes sticking out from the clusters.

 

The Prima tickets are poked into the clusters too with a selection from all the flower packs in the kit.

 

I added a bigger piece of pretty lace border into the paper layer border I added down the side of the layout… this is also popped up onto some cardboard to lift of the page, I love adding a little depth to my layouts…
….and I used the vellum printed packaging again that the flowers are stuck onto in their packs… its far to nice to throw out!!

I spritzed some of the mist over the flowers and embellishments at the end.

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.

Challenge Monday (on Wednesday)

Happy Wednesday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday (but on Wednesday). This month is a Mood Board challenge.

Here is the Mood Board:

This mood board can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the Mood board:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the shabby chicness of this. I was inspired by the upper right and bottom left photos in the mood board.

How about some close ups?

I wanted to go with the softness and colors of the the photos I chose from the mood board. I did some stenciling on the background and used some Glimmer mist in Timeless Lilac.

I cut up the rose border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with Lindy’s pop rock purple embossing powder. I also cut some doilies with dies from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster.

I used the tickets from the kit, plus I cut some of the seed packets from the paper to layer under my photo.  I tucked in a small piece of lace on the bottom.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Pop Rock Purple embossing powder and Timeless Lilac Glimmer mist are  great matches for this kit. Seedless Preserves Distress Ink is also a good match to use. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the Mood Board. Don’t forget to load your entries in the January challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

Join us all month-long as the designers reveal all their projects created with all our amazing kits. We still have kit subscriptions available here. You can also just try out a single kit here.

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

Lavender Frost layout with Ginny

Hello All!

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have all have a fabulous, happy, healthy, peaceful and joyous 2019!

It’s time for a layout created with the January Kit from Tres Jolie Kits, this kit is a beauty this month!
We have beautiful papers from 49 & Market and Prima Marketing and some gorgeous embellishments to compliment them.
I have also had the pleasure of creating with the Cards Tags and More Kit this month too… again filled with Prima goodies. More on that later in the month.

Today I have decided to share with you a layout created with the Prima Marketing Lavender Frost papers.

 

 

I did a little stenciling with texture paste in the background.
There are loads of layers in this layout, small oblongs cut from lots of the Prima papers in this collection.

 

The flowers from this collection are stunning. I grouped them together along with some butterflies fussy cut from the papers.

I added some of the tickets in the clusters too.

All the flowers are packaged with a piece of printed vellum paper… I loved this and couldn’t waste it so I have used this in my paper layers.

I added touches of Nuvo Crystal drops to the layout from a previous kit.
