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.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March Mixed Media Kit-Paddle

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

For my first project this month I am sharing with you what I made using the unfinished paddle from this month’s kit!

As you can see, I also used the mediums, transparency, butterflies, and one of the frames from the kit to put my board together.
Check out how I did it with this video!

I mixed some of the 13@rts Olive Green paint with the 13@rts Gel Medium, both from the kit, and stenciled the mixture on in a few spots.

The sketched leaves are from the Silhouette store, but you don’t need this specific file to recreate the look! You could hand-draw your own design, use stamps, or fussy cut a nice patterned paper!

I used a thick layer of the Gel Medium on the frame so it would hold the frame and the stems down. For the leaves that didn’t get caught under the frame, I went back and used some Art Glitter Glue to attach them. I also used little dabs of the Gel Medium to hold on the butterflies!

I absolutely love how my paddle came out! And it wasn’t overly complicated! I spent more time waiting for things to dry than I did putting together!

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this months mixed media kit! Make sure you subscribe to our blog and YouTube Channel so you can always be kept up-to-date on kit releases and sample projects!

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to present a Journal Spread I made while I was camping.  I had brought my Journal with me, remember the journal we had in a previous kit ?

Here is the beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit :

Here is the kit content :

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

  1. Ciao Bella – Romantic Time 12×12 Paper Pack
  2. Ciao Bella – Rice Paper – Romantic Time – Endless Love
  3. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Neutral Beauty
  4. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Sweet Species
  5. Scrapaholics – Chipboard – Ivy vine spray set
  6. Scrapaholics – Chipboard -Leafy Flourish set 2
  7. Creative Embellishments – Chipboard – Mini Frames

I was inspired by the Rice Paper, I thought it would make a gorgeous  background in my album.  I put a coat of Matt Gel to adhere it on the background.
 

I adhered peaces of Lace too in the middle also with Gel.

 

Once the gel was dry, I used some White Gesso mixed with water and did like a wash on the surface.

 

I glued some frame chipboards and added some crackle paste here and there. If you want more crackle, you have to let it dry.

 

Here is the final result after I used some watercolor and added flowers.

 

I cut out the title in one of the patterned paper from the kit :

 

 

 

 

thank you for watching !
