Tres Jolie Kit Club – September Mixed Media Kit – Prima ATCs “Alphabet Cards”

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

This week I am bringing you my project using the Prima “Alphabet Cards” ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit (the cards are not shown in the kit photo).

 

To start, I haphazardly brushed on some clear gesso to all of the cards, sprayed them with the Lindy’s Gang Moon Shadow Mist from the kit, then started building up my layers. Check out the video to see how it all came about!



I dug into my collections of mediums (many of which came from previous Tres Jolie kits), and just started decorating my cards! I added some stenciling using the gel medium and glitter from this month’s kit, and topped it with some stamping. I then added some quick flower sketches to some of the ATCs, some (more) stenciling, and some painting. Then I just grabbed up some black gesso and traced over the printed letters on the cards to bring those alphabet back to the front!

I really didn’t have any rhyme or reason when I put these cards together, I just went with what I was feeling like using at the time!

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with the ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–August 2020 Sketch-“This Beautiful Life”

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

This week I am bringing you a layout I created for this month’s sketch challenge using the August 2020 Scrapbooking Kit! This kit includes the scrumptious “Diva” papers from A.B. Studio, some beautiful Prima flowers and ephemera, chipboard from Dusty Attic and Scrapaholics, and a pack of resin pieces from Scrapberry. DSC_0005-FRAMED

I just adore the “Diva” Collection, and it took me a little while to figure out exactly what I was going to do with it, and to tell the truth, the large cut out bonus piece in the pack did a lot of the work for me! Check out the sketch this month, then look below it to see my process video!

To add a little texture to the background I did some water distressing along the edge of the blue-grey paper and added some light stenciling, using an Art Anthology stencil and some texture paste from my stash, where it would peek out from behind my layers.

Even though fussy cutting isn’t my most favorite part of crafting, I just had to add in some of the black & white flowers and foliage from the cut apart sheet in the “Diva” collection. For my chipboard keys and ornaments I pulled out a couple of Prima Fluid Chalks (that came in previous Tres Jolie kits) and just dabbed them on!

Those Prima flowers were the perfect complement to the “Diva” papers, and the pack of “Darcelle” ephemera gave me the piece I needed for the perfect title.

Translating That Thirst in Art

When I sat down to create today I had something on my heart and on my mind and I honestly couldn’t get past it till I worked through it and since I had already used the wooden trays and floral elements from my January mixed media kit I pulled out my box and grabbed those gorgeous metallic paints by Prima and those Tim Holtz stencils got to work.  I also grabbed my favorite Bible journaling supplies, my water colors.

It’s pretty simple, I didn’t even sketch it out.  I just freehand water colored directly on the Bible page and once dried I came back and highlighted it with a felt tip pen.  Next using a fine brush I highlighted the cactus with the gold acrylic paint in the January mixed media kit.  I also highlighted the verse I was focusing on as well.

I then placed one of the Tim Holtz stencils on the page and stenciled on more of the beautiful gold paint, as well as a few splatters of gold paint.

I’m so in love with this page!  It’s just what I needed.  So have you ever used your art supplies in your Bible (a dedicated journaling Bible or art Bible)?  I dare ya!

Now y’all go do something beautiful

Lunar Slumber Mini Wooden Tray

Hey y’all!! Can I just start by saying how much I love this little mini wooden trays by Prima that are in the January mixed media kit?!    I mean, the possibilities!  So for this project I used just one of them because I have so many fab ideas for them!

I’m a big Prima fan so I have made some clay pieces before using their air dry paper clay and silicone molds and happened to have them laying around when I went looking for pieces to feature in my little tray.  They just seemed like a logical choice.

Besides that, the only other products I used that were not in the kit were some glass bead gel and acrylic paints by Bad Girls Couture.

Over all the process was pretty simple and fun, gluing on the clay faces first then painting the center black and outside kinda a fun light aqua.  Next I did some texturing and distressing and rubbed on some metallics.   I made a little process video, take a peek at how I created it!

Recycled Tag

You may have realized by now that I like to use every little scrap of my kits.  This month I had not only the Mixed Media kit but also the scrapbook kit so I had a lot to work with.

When I got low on my papers I began to look at the pretty packaging that the Blue Fern embellishments came in and it replicated the patterns on the paper in a smaller print.  I thought to myself that it would make the perfect tag so I got to work!

I cut the tag shape out and punched a hole at the top

I then used the stencil from the mixed media kit and some molding paste to create some great texture on my newly created tag.

Once the new texture was created and dried I sprayed on some Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist from the Mixed Media kit.

Next I added more texture by applying some paper packing scraps at the bottom with more molding paste and I tucked in one of the little resin birds from the Scrapbook kit.

I continued to layer more texture with the mesh tape from the mixed media kit as well.

While the molding paste was wet I sprinkled on some coarse silver glitter and allowed it all to dry well.  Once it was all dry I added a title cutout with a pop dot and rubbed the bird with some metallic gold.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you are inspired to look at your packaging in a different light!!
