Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit–Birdhouse

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kits blog! Today I’ll be sharing a Spring Birdhouse I created using items from this month’s mixed media kit along with items from my stash!

DSC_0001_FRAMED

I created the birdhouse with various brown and tan cardstock sheets and some patterned papers from Friends and Craft O’Clock using Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions)

I used the larger circle from from this months kit on the “entrance” of the birdhouse, then used the last of the transparency and flowers from my stash to fill it in! The stick is one from my yard, the brick chipboard is from the kit, and painted with a single layer of the Cafe Au Lait paint. I added some of the metal butterflies to finish things off!

This photo of the roof shows the watered-down paints that I used to add some extra color to the birdhouse!

Here at the back of the birdhouse, I arranged some of the chipboard to cover the rear hole from the stick!

More bricks and butterflies on the front!

I painted the back of the transparency pieces with the Olive Green paint before using gel medium to hold it in place!

In addition to items from the kit (*From previous Tres Jolie kits), I also used:

Scotch Advanced Tape Glider; BEST Double-Sided Tape 1/4” & 1/8”; Art Glitter Glue; FabriTac; Spellbinder Tool n One; Silhouette Store ID# 271046 – “Birdhouse 3D Gable Box” by Snapdragon Snippets (Snapdragon Snippets Assembly Instructions); *Friends & Craft O’Clock “Vintage Bison”; *Bazzill “Dark Kraft” Cardstock (x4); Silhouette Cameo 3; Niacapa Cutting Mat; Silhouette Premium Blade; Stick from outside; Krylon Workable Fixatif; Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

Note: All other cardstock was unmarked & I’ve had it so long I can no longer recall manufacturer or how I acquired it! I used 2 sheets of the dark brown and 2 sheets of the light tan. (At least I’m fairly certain, it may have been 3 sheets of the dark brown.)

Altered Mixed Media Clock

Hello everyone!! This week I am back with this altered Clock that I created using some of the products from the March Cards, Tags, & More Kit.

 

I had the clock frame base , which is from Prima Marketing Finnabair products that I had in my stash for quite a while. This was the perfect size for what I wanted to create because I do have other brand and size but I felt this one had more space for me to do what I wanted to create on.

Other products I used aside from the March kit, I used products from DecoArt, FolkArt, 13@rts, Tim Holtz, G45, 7 Gypsies, Frank Garcia Memory Hardware.

 

This project was so much fun and I loved the colors that Kim had chose for the monthly kit! It made my project stand out more and I just kept adding and adding embellishments, I couldn’t stop!

 

 

I loved adding the vintage woman & girl paper dolls on the inside! I honestly can’t pick which I like more, that or the flower/gear/clock faces clusters I created on top of the clock and the outer side of it too!

I do hope that you like what I came up with using some of the items from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit March it. I’m excited with this entire kit, and looking forward to sharing the next project too! Till then I hope u come back and check out the rest of my teammates posts! They are super talented and show how to create with the other kits from Tres Jolie! Talk soon!!

~Hugs~

Altered Cutting Board Project

Hey guys!!!  Happy Tuesday!!  Today I’m sharing my fun altered cutting board projects from the March Mixed Media kit.

I started out with the natural cutting board Darice and gave it a thin coat of the olive green paint from 13 Arts.

I allowed the olive green acrylic paint to dry well

Next I sanded the entire board down well, paying close attention to the edges.  I really wanted the grain of the wood to show through.   You could use an electric sander for this part.

I used some letter stickers to apply the word “Family”.  If you have a vinyl cutter, that would work well for this.

Next I applied a good coat of the 13 Arts “Cafe Au Lait” acrylic paint and allowed it to dry well.  I then rubbed it with the gold Prima wax from last month’s kit.

I assembled the entire thing on the board with hot glue, layering on the scrapaholics brick chipboard that I painted with acrylic paints, coated with some modeling paste and then gave it a good rub with some gold metallic wax.

 

Mixed Media Kit Contents:

  1. Darice – Wood – Cutting board
  2. 49 & Market – Flower Series Mini – Ginger
  3. Prima Marketing- Memory Hardware – Frames
  4. Prima Marketing- Mechanicals – Butterflies
  5. 13 Arts – Gel Medium
  6. 13 Arts – Acrylic Paint – Cafe Au Lait
  7. 13 Arts – Acrylic Paint – Olive Green
  8. 13 Arts – Transparency Sheet – Rhapsody
  9. Scrapaholics – Chipboard Saying – Brick Pieces

Tres Jolie Kit Club–February Sketch Inspiration

Hi All! I’m back with one last project this month! A layout of me using the sketch from this month’s challenge as inspiration!
DSC_0001_FRAMED

Here I am, a little four year old just hanging around!

Febuary 2020 sketch

The sketch for this month’s challenge. Watch the following video to see how I created my layout!

After coating the papers in gesso, I stamped, stenciled, and inked before adding the embellishments and photo.

My final touch was to cover the photo then use a paintbrush to splatter and drop some “Black Soot” Distress paint on the whole project.

Memories Layout with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my last project that I have made with the February scrapbook kit. This layout features my favorite sheet of paper from the kit. It’s one of those papers that looks amazing all on its own! So, I knew that when I used it, I wasn’t going to add mixed media techniques, and it was going to be a sort of palette-cleansing project so that that beautiful piece of paper would stand out in the design. This is what I came up with: I adore the wood image with peeling paint or wall paper maybe!

The only treatment that the paper got was some “swervy” cutting along the edges, and some brown chalk ink on the edges.  You can see a closeup of this below: 

The Creative Embellishments heart chain pieces are so lovely!  I embossed them with Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in shabby white.  I also used a piece of chipboard from my stash- I added some white gesso, then inked it with green chalk ink, and then I dry brushed some pink wax on it.

I kept the flower clusters pretty simple, adding some white gesso to the flowers and leaves.  I also added some of the Prima “Say it in Crystals” from the kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Keep an eye out for some sneaks for our March kits!

Altered Heart with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my altered heart that I made using the February mixed media kit.  Here’s what’s in the kit:

And, here’s what I came up with:

Then I gave the burlap as well as the rest of the elements a whitewashed coat of gesso. Once primed, I added some of the Prima Sparks paints to the flowers, just lightly and repeatedly adding the paints using a fan brush until I got the coverage just right.

Next, I used a stippling brush to add the Prima gold wax.  I gave the wood and flowers more attention  that the layers of wood and burlap of the heart. You can see the gold in this closeup of the wicker hearts. I started the project by gluing and sewing everything to the heart.

To complete the project I added some details from my stash to adorn the inside of the Prima Memory Hardware shutters: the background paper is from this month’s scrapbook kit.  The quote is cut from a Prima notecard, and the corners are metal filagree.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February Mixed Media Kit-Wicker Heart

Hey, all and welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club blog! I’m here with my first February project to share with you; using the wicker heart, flowers and mediums that came in the kit, as well as items from my stash, I created a grunge-y décor piece!

DSC_0026_FRAMED

Ready to see how I did it? Check out my video!

Now for some close up photos that really show the details!

DSC_0028_FRAMED

Even though it’s a resin key, the paint and “rust” really give it an aged metal look!

DSC_0027_FRAMED

DSC_0031_FRAMED

Fortunately Prima paints are rather think and quick drying! That really helped them stay on top of the burlap!

DSC_0030_FRAMED

I just love how the splattering came out! It might get messy, but the effect is absolutely worth it!

In the above photos you can see where I added the “Daffodil” Shimmerz Creameez & “Milled Lavender” Distress Oxide Spray!

For the lattice behind the shutters I added some “Buttercup” Embossing Powder from my stash to one of the Creative Embellishment pieces found in this months kit! And the bird? One I had left from the December 2019 Scrapbooking Kit!

It doesn’t happen all the time, but sometimes I feel the need to add tons of flowers! Fortunately Kim makes sure there are flowers to spare in her kits, because two of the three additional flower packages I had saved from previous months! (In total I have five flower packs on here, two from this months kit, two from previous months, and one I actually bought myself!)

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:
