May sketch challenge layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I really love the color story. Another kit I’m really enjoying working with . It is definitely my style.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the May sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here I did a bit of stenciling with some black crackle. I added a cardboard pieces from the cardboard ephemera set. I heat embossed the chipboard piece from my stash.  I used some vintage copper embossing powder on it.

The flowers are from from my stash. I like how they add texture to the layout.

Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous chipboard. More flowers from my stash and the black resin piece is from a past kit.

This handsome young man is my nephew, who was just recently taken from us by someone who thought is was ok to rob him just because they wanted what he had.

So to get through my grief, I have been scrapping pictures of him and remembering what an amazing person he was. He had been through so much (health wise)in his 32 years, but he always had a smile on his face. You will see a lot more of him in the future.

Monday’s Mixed Media

Hey everyone, Kim here. I’m serving up some mixed media madness today, working with the March Mixed Media kit.

Here is the Mixed Media kit if you haven’t already seen it (unfortunately it is sold out. Time to subscribe so you don’t miss out:

Here is the project I created with the kit:

 

Here are some close-ups:

 

 

There is no real formula in working with this kit. Once you get your configuration figured out, then it’s just time to dive into the mediums.

The mediums in this kit were so fun to work with. The wax was very smooth and the paints give a beautiful shimmer (photos don’t do it justice). I added a bit of copper crackle paste from my stash.

May Mood Board layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It is definitely my style.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the May mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I used a tag from the paper pack to layer behind my photo. I also used some colored burlap from my stash. The chipboard is from a past kit. I just inked it with some brown chalk ink. I used lots of texture including drywall tape (from a past MM kit), burlap flowers and nail heads.

I did some stamping all around the photo with black ink and a script stamp from my stash. I also added some background stenciling using modeling paste. Then added more burlap flowers (from my stash).

May 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 Mixed Media kit features Prima Marketing  texture past, Luimere paints  and a large artist palette. Also included is are some resin flowers, gold flowers, glitter and a 6×6 stencil.

Here is the kit:

This artist palette was really oversized and a lot of fun to alter using the kit mediums.

Here is my project:

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers and resin frame from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this:

“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.

Here is a video of my process:
