Love this Life layout with the June Kit

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing another layout created with the June scrapbook kit. I really love the 49 & Market papers in the kit. They are so soft and pretty. If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

Almost everything is from the kit. The big chipboard piece is from my stash.

How about some close-ups:

All the flowers, leaves and the resin are from the kit. I just love the way this cluster turned out.

 

The doily is from my stash. I’ve had it for a while. It was the perfect match for this layout. The green stamp is part of the matching embellishment pack from 49 & Market. You get so many pieces and they are great to use all over your pages.

Just another close-up of the gorgeous flowers included in the kit.

“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:

June 2018 Canvas-Cream Catcher By Heather Thompson

I wanted to make something creative with the main kit and the fussy cut elements that came with the 13 arts paper. SO I decided make a dream catcher. Not having an embroidery ring to part with, I just made my own hoop to used out of a plastic lid. It worked perfect, and it didn’t cost a thing.

Here is the video for you all

Very creative how the piece evolved, here are some close-ups.

Mixed Media Canvas by Ginny

Hello All!

Here is my last project made with the June Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This is my second project made with the Mixed Media Kit….. a canvas.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this project, it was so much fun!

So lets go through step by step and I can show you how the end result was achieved!

I started by painting the 5×7 inch canvas with clear gesso

I used the two brown Alcohol Inks from the Mixed Media Kit, Caramel and Latte.
I added a blue, Stonewashed and a mixative, Gold, from my stash as well.

I sprinkled droplets of the two inks, Caramel and Latte onto the canvas.

I then used some blending solution over the ink droplets to make them ‘run’ and blend together.

This solution was also from stash but is handy when working with alcohol inks.

This is what the canvas looked like after the blue and gold had been added with more blending solution.

I cut the leaves and flowers from 13 Arts paper……..

like so…..

and the flowers….

I then used the texture paste from the Mixed Media Kit with a stencil to add more detail across the layout.

To adhere the fussy cut leaves and flowers to the canvas I used a gel medium and used it underneath and over the top of the cut pieces to completely stick them and protect them on the canvas.

The butterflies from the Prima set I did slightly differently to each other. The big butterfly I painted the concave parts with the gold Mixative. the smaller one I gently rubbed the gold over the risen pattern only wit my finger.

Then using a piece of cloth I then gently rubbed in some of the blue alcohol ink around the risen borders of the butterflies in various depths of strength.

I glued these to the canas with my hot glue gun.

Next I used these Microspheres from the Mixed Media kit….

a poured/sprinkled them where I wanted them into already applied gel medium.
The medium will take a while to dry but will dry clear leaving just the microspheres.

Like this…

And I created a butterfly trail with them too!

Thus erse was cut from the paper I showed you earlier too and I inked round the edges with the gold mixative.

I popped it on a piece of cardboard to add height and glued onto the canvas.

And here is the finished canvas.

Dream layout

Hello all,

I’m back with another layout today made using the June Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This layout is actually very simple, with only a little paper layering, and fussy cutting.

For this one I used the 13 Arts papers in the kit.

These are gorgeous papers from 13 Arts.

I used one of the papers as a torn background border down the centre of my layout, the edges torn as always!

I ran a piece of the beautiful lace down one side of this paper layer just slightly slotting it underneath.

And splattered the background with the Patina Ink from the Mixed media kit.

Again I did a lot of fussy cutting for this layout. I slotted them into my photo backing layers along with the lovely resin feathers.

The photo is popped up on an a piece of cardboard so I have plenty of room to slot other embellishments under. My photos are backed with a piece of matching 13 Arts Paper with torn edges (or use a distressing tool)

I added some lovely lace leaves, the shabby chic resins feathers and flowers.

I cut the word for my title out of the 13 Arts paper: All Good Things.

Products from the Scrapbook Kit:

13 Arts: Until Dawn: In the Garden

13 Arts: Until Dawn: Frosty Garden

Prima: Vintage Floral Collection: Pink Promises

13 Arts: Until Dawn: All Good Things

June Sketch Layout By Phyllis

Hi Crafty Friends!  Phyllis here again to share my layout for the June Sketch Challenge at Tres Jolie!  I used 13 Arts papers to create this layout!  13 Arts papers~Frosty Morning,  In the Garden,  Cold Day and Sending Flowers.

I begin with adding White Crackle Texture paste thru a stencil,  then I ink stamped for added interest.  I wanted 13 Arts In the Garden design to show thru so I tore Frosty Morning paper and tucked In the Garden behind so it was peeking thru.

 

 

Then I got my die machine out and cut out 2 doilies for some layering,  for the doilie I used 13 Arts Cold Day paper this brought a nice pop to the design!

I then cut some photo matting from Sending Flowers and a couple tags.   I loved 13 Arts back of In the Garden it has beautiful Leaves,  I decided to fussy cut a few to add to the Prima Flowers.  And for a darker pop of color I added some Black trim from the June Kit.  One more embellishment I added was from the Prima Shabby Chic trinket pack,  it added a nice touch to this layout reminded me of a garden.  Once everything was in place I glued it all down and then added some splatters of black ink spray.

The papers in Tres Jolie June Kit are so Elegant and have a vintage feel to them,  you will love them!  There are so many options to create your memories with!  Hope you get a chance to create with this beautiful kit!  Be sure to enter your creation for the June Sketch Challenge!
