Tres Jolie Kit Club–October Scrapbooking Kit & Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

This week I’m bringing you my sketch challenge project using this month’s scrapbooking kit. I didn’t do a whole lot to my layout, because I really loved all the detail in the beautiful Blue Fern Studio’s paper and I just couldn’t bring myself to “covering it up”!

Check out the video below to see the simple steps I took to put this layout, featuring a photo of my great-grandmother, together!

Have you seen this month’s sketch? It’s a beauty!​​

Here is the original sketch: And here is how I rotated it:

Now, how about a few close-ups?

Here you can see how that Shimmerz has just a touch of sparkle to it and pools around the crackle paste, giving a touch of color that goes along with the pinkish-purple of the flowers.​​

Using one of the 49 & Market flower packs found in the kit this month I created three clusters, and under each cluster, I added some extra detail from some fussy cut flowers and lace from another sheet of the Blue Fern Studios paper. Then, for some more detail, I added some texture pebbles and glass glitter from my stash.

I added three layers of Baked Texture (from my stash) to the large chipboard frame found in this month’s kit, added my photo, and used some corrugated cardboard to lift it from the page some so a couple of the flowers could get tucked underneath.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items found in this month’s Scrapbooking Kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Moodboard-Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I’m bringing you a rather thick junk journal I created using the papers, frames, tag, and resin pieces that came in this month’s scrapbooking kit.

I was inspired by Wendy’s Journal Adventure’s “The Caring Gardner Botanical Journal.” I don’t even know what I was looking for when I came across the video, but I loved how the first and last signatures were dedicated to pockets and flip-outs with the middle signatures dedicated to the pages to write on; I had always seen journals with the pocket and flip-out pages intermingled with the writing pages. I also loved the corrugated cardboard she used on the inside covers, which reminded me I had some KaiserCraft Corrugated Sheets from the October 2019 Tres Jolie Scrapbooking Kit. Check out a few photos, found below the flip-through video, to see how some of the pages are laid out.

Tres Jolie Kit Club – June 2020 Cards, Tags & More Kit – Envelope Notebook

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I’m bringing you a little journal I created using the Simple Stories line that was in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More kit. As soon as I saw the kit I knew what I wanted to do with those papers, frames, and stickers! I didn’t go in with a plan of action, just a vague goal for the finished product, but I eventually made my way through all my own confusion and got it done!

DSC_0066-FRAMED

Those chipboard frames made perfect window pockets! Check out my video to get an idea of what I did! And below the video, you’ll find photos of the pages! I think it is easier to “explain” this project with the video, especially since it is mostly just clueing papers down, but I do give a bit of an overview as I work on the first couple of pages. If you just want to see the end result, I do a final overview around the 37:40 mark.

I used all of that Simple Stories paper pad, as well as all the stickers and frames, putting this together! By the end, I was having to fill in places with parts of the cover, as explained in the video!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit-Canvas

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! For my second project this month I created a grung-y canvas using items from this months kit on a canvas I had previously purchased at Dollar Tree!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

This canvas was quick and easy! I had it together in a day (the paint dried rather quickly!) and just set it aside to let the glues and 13@rts Gel Medium from the kit dry! See how I put it all together here!


Video:


With just a few items from my stash, I created a little décor piece in one day! (And I never finish a project in one day!!)

DSC_0009-FRAMED

After I coated the canvas in black gesso, I layered some torn pages from an old book and a piece of patterned paper on the canvas then used a palette knife to create the broad strokes of paint. Without adding gesso first, I put a single layer of the same paint on the brick chipboard from the kit.

DSC_0005-FRAMED

After the paint dried I added my transparency piece using the gel medium from the kit.

DSC_0007-FRAMED

Still using the gel medium, I put my flower clusters together, added my butterflies, and fussy cut leaves from parts of the transparency to add to my clusters.
