Use Your Wings Mixed Media Project

Hi everyone, Kim here sharing my Mixed Media project created with the November Mixed Media kit.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of different mediums. We have  some crackle paste, some dry glitter, mica powder and some inka gold. Also included is are some flowers to alter. Everything needed to alter the metal wings included in the kit.

Here is the kit:

These wings were so fun to create with.

Here is my project:

I started with the wooden heart in the kit. I gave it a nice heavy coat of the crackle paste and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I wiped the high points with the inka gold, then gave it a spritz with mist I made from the mica powder.

For the wings, I went over the high points with the inka gold. The I added glue to the tips and sprinkled them with the dry glitter for some shimmer.

For the flowers, I took a few of the script ones and swiped them with the inka gold. Then I used the mist and sprayed all the flowers for a good dose of shimmer. It’s hard to see the shimmer in the photo, but they really shine in person. The blue flowers are from the scrapbook kit. They added just the right punch of color. The wings, I mad from a mold and just sprayed them with the mist.

Once all that was done, I just put it all together. Once I got the vision in my heard as what I wanted to do, this came together pretty quickly (except for drying time, LOL).

Remember to stay tuned to the blog  for more inspiration using the our kits. We will be revealing the December kit soon.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November Mood Board

DSC_0001-FRAMED

For me a “scrapbooking kit” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to be making scrapbook pages! Sometimes I just can’t resist using (almost) everything up in one project, like the junk journal I made for this month mood board!

Altered Wooden Box with Cards, Tags & Address Book/Journal

Hello crafty friends!!! This month I’m back with a super adorable project that I created using the Tres Jolie Scrapbook Kit  .  This project is for this months Mood Board Challenge. I decided to alter a wooden box. This box measures 8×8. I do plan to add more cards, envelopes, & tags. I just wanted to create just a few to show something and not an empty box haha!!

In this project I was inspired by Frank Garcia a designer for Prima Marketing. He did a similar design for a mini album parcel that I subscribe to. I just added all of the flowers and other small elements.  I took the wooden box that came with this kit, note these weren’t the papers for that parcel.

     

I really enjoyed altering this box. I made some 3×3 cards with envelopes , tags that I had in my stash, I added some papers from the collection to them, they came with some twine so I added that to the box, I also altered a small hardcover notepad. I couldn’t find a smaller notepad at the time and of course after I altered this one I came across smaller ones that I had in my hoard. No worries this one came out nice. This can be used as an address book or just a journal.

I do hope that you were inspired to create something like this!! If you would like to see a tutorial on this please check out my blog @ Jeannie In A Bottle Blog  These sorts of projects make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, keepsakes, etc. I do hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family as I will do with mine, although my daughter and her family will be spending it with her other family but my sons will be here and I’m not too upset cuz I get to have her for Christmas . Talk to you all soon ~Hugs~ Jeanne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dancing in the leaves

Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here up on the blog, I’m back this week with a couple tags that I really enjoyed creating. Using the beautiful kit from the Cards, Tags, And More, I was truly inspired to keep the tags intact and not cut them smaller.

I love stamped images and don’t have a whole lot of them but the ones I do have I love to paper piece & if you have never tried it, I suggest u do especially if your intimidated by coloring images as I am. I do color the skin using Spectrum Noir Copic Markers. Aside from the cute Gorjuss girl images I layered papers from the kit on one of the tags as well as using the packaging from some Prima Marketing flowers from the kit on another tag.

 

       

Here are some photos I took as I was creating these, I applied Nuvo Mousse, colors Custard CreamToasted Almond  on the edges of the tags. I then added some of the papers from the kit. I used lace from the kit, I cut out some sentiments from one of the papers , some of the Prima leaves packet from the kit and other embellishments you might see on my tags.

These were super fun to create & if you would like to learn how to paper piece these or other stamped images, I am happy to do a tutorial or you can find many on YouTube. I do hope that you like what I have created with this beautiful kit from Tres Jolie. Continue reading “Dancing in the leaves”

Mixed Media Heart Ornament

Happy Tuesday y’all!  today I’m sharing a project I did with the little wooden heart that was in the November Mixed Media kits.  I have to admit, dispite it’s small size I was intemidated by it for some reason.  I really don’t know why!

The first thing I did was trace the heart onto some corrugated packing paper, cut it out and then apply it on to the heart.  Then I used some sandpaper to distress the edges.

Next I applied some of the Deco Art Crackle Medium to it and allowed it to crackle (you can use a heat or drying tool to help with this).  Once dried I applied some watered down acrylic paint to give it some pops of color.  Then I rubbed on some of the Turquoise Viva Ink Gold Rub.

Then I began to add my Prima Flowers.  I also added a bit of the Turquoise Viva Ink Gold rub to the flowers as well to add some color to them too.

Once I had the flowers all adhered on, I brushed on some matte gel medium to the flowers and sprinkled some of the fine glitter that was included in the kit for a little shine.

Finally I added some metal embellishments from my stash and tucked in some preserved reindeer moss.  I also rubbed that awesome Turquoise Ink Gold on one of the metal embellishments.  It adhered to the metal so well and dried super quick.

I hope you enjoyed!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

In My Heart

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the November scrapbook kit. The new papers from Prima Marketing are so pretty. the colors are amazing. 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.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

I have used this photo a time or two before. It’s one of my favorites of my mom. It just goes so perfectly with these papers.

 I embossed chipboard rose leaves using 2 different embossing powders. One is from a past kit.  I used the ink in the kit to go around my title.

How about some close-ups:

Here you can see a close up of the embossed rose leaves with the 2 different colors.

More chipboard pieces that were embossed.

Here you can see where I tor and layered patterned papers and doilies.

Mood Board Monday (Wild Soul)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board challenge.

So what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board.

Doesn’t this get your creative mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by the ledger pattern, the flowers and some of the colors.  I had lots of fun creating this layout.

This is just a random photo of me.

How about some close-ups.

I did some misting in the background. I used some Prima mist in antique gold and boysenberry from my stash (they are a perfect match for this kit if you own them).

 

I embossed the chipboard with some Lindy’s embossing powder. The leaf and butterfly die cuts along with the  gold frame are from my stash.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

Place your entries in the November 2019 Challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe Facebook page. All are welcome to enter, however we’d love to see what you do with our kits.

Sweetness by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know that I am leaving Tres Jolie’s Design Team.  I have been creating for the past year and I loved my experience ! Kim is such a generous, kind and talented person ! Thank you Kim for welcoming me in your team !

Thank you to all of you for following me and I hope I helped you develop your creativity !

For my last project, I decide to share a photo tutorial :

I put a coat of clear Gesso on the surface and let it dry.  You can see on the next photo that I used the Kaiser Green Ink with water and put some on the background.

In a previous kit, there was a small stencil in a Prima flower package, so I used it with Modeling Paste :

I used Pink watercolour do add color and splashes.

Here I painted the chipboard with White Gesso and once it was dry, I used a bit of yellow watercolour.

I like to maximize my chipboard pieces so I cut it in 2 :

Here I used some patterned paper and wripped it with my sanding tool.

I finished off with flowers, embellishments and art stones.

Here are some close-ups :

thank you for watching !
