Tres Jolie Kit Club-January Mixed Media Kit-Bees

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog!!

My second project for this month for the Tres Jolie Kit Club focuses on up-cycling a wooden box, using one of the three stencils, two of the paints, the 49 & Market Vine, and some of the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles found in this months Mixed Media Kit!

Even though in the beginning I wasn’t completely sure if I’d use the ReneaBouquet Bees from my stash, they were the inspiration for the colors! I really just wanted everything but the flowers to have neutral coloring, so I used the “Ancient Coin” and “Steampunk Copper” Prima Paints from the kit on the box and rice paper (also from my stash) with the stencil.

I painted the top “rim” of the box with the “Ancient Coin” and used the “Steampunk Copper” on the outside and inside edges, as well as creating a texture paste of the paints for the stenciling!

I added some of the texture paste stenciling to the outside of the box for texture then painted it with the “Steampunk Copper.”

Here are some close-ups of each of the four compartments so can get a good look at the details!

This little box went together quickly, and I was able to put it all together in a single day! Because Prima paints dry so quickly I was able to time their dry time when I went and had some lunch, and the texture paste I just had to wait for it to be “dry enough.”


The January Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club:MM Kit Graphics

In addition to items from the January Mixed Media kit, I used:

ReneaBouquets Bees, 13@rts Magic Powder, Stamperia Rice Paper (DFSA3004), Liquitex Clear Gesso, Liquitex Gloss Super Heavy Gel, FabriTac, JudiKins Diamond Glaze, and Mod Podge Paper Matte

Tres Jolie Kit Club-January 2020 Mixed Media – Prima Wooden Trays

Hey, everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog!!

My first project this month focuses on using the fabulous Prima Wooden Trays, one of the three stencils, all three paints, and some of the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles found in this months Mixed Media Kit, along with a few items from my stash!

DSC_0002-FRAMED

When I first started this project I had a much different idea in mind, but I eventually realized this was going to be so much better as an abstract art project!


Video:


DSC_0008-FRAMED

You can see stenciling with the paint’s (both from the January 2020 Mixed Media Kit) I turned into texture paste using “Magic Powder” from 13@rts, an item from my stash that came in the June 2018 Tres Jolie Mixed Media Kit.

DSC_0005-FRAMED

I love how the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles look like air bubble in the epoxy!

DSC_0011-FRAMED

I sprinkled my “Henna” and “Gold Leaf” mica flakes on the bottom, then sprinkled the “Frosted” on top of the epoxy. After that was done I popped the Prima Mélange Art Pebbles in and set the trays on a nice level shelf to cure for 24 hours!


In addition to the January 2020 Mixed Media Kit, I used:

Stamperia Rice Paper “Cosmos” Collection, 13@rts Magic Powder, Liquitex Black Gesso, Mod Podge Paper Matte, Tim Holtz Medium Distress Brush, Prima Mica Flakes “Gold Leaf,” “Henna,” and “Frosted,” and Art n Glow Resin

Tres Jolie Kit Club-December Mixed Media-Dressform

Hey, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog!

For my third project using the December Mixed Media Kit, I altered used some paper from my stash with the mediums and drywall tapes from the kit to create a décor dressform! (Dressform Cut File from svgcuts.com)


DSC_0003-FRAMED

Can you believe this wasn’t my original plan? I had thought to alter a pencil box to make it look like a treasure chest! Things didn’t go according to plan, and I had to adjust! You can see the transformation in my YouTube video!


Video:


DSC_0004-FRAMED

Even though I hadn’t planned on making flowers, I am in love with all the texture the drywall tapes impart! (All of the glue and gel hadn’t had time to dry fully & become transparent yet when I had to take the photos!)

DSC_0006-SNEAKPEEK-FRAMED

DSC_0013-FRAMED

DSC_0015-FRAMED

My main flower is actually made from the Tim Holtz “Jumbo Tattered Pinecone” Bigz Die and the rest of the flowers came from the Time Holtz “Tattered Florals” Bigz Die.

DSC_0007-FRAMED

In this picture of the back you can really see the beautiful lace I used as, more or less, the bodice of the “dress.” I am so glad I hoarded that lace for so long!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–December Mixed Media Kit-Top Hat

Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Blog! Although it wasn’t intentional, I completed four projects this month! The rice paper I used here was misplaced at the beginning of the month, and was put away in the wrong spot! I think it statically adhered to the plastic of the Cards, Tags, and More Kit’s patterned paper. That being said, once I realized it was “missing,” I already had three projects completed, but I still had this rice paper, so I created a winter top hat!

DSC_0001_FRAMED

This little hat stands approximately 3-3/4” tall and is made sturdy using some chicken wire “ribbon.” That’s the only way I know how to describe the wire!

On the front I used some ReneaBouquet’s Beautiful Board Snowflakes from my stash, sprayed with the two Lindy’s Gang Moon Shadow Mists from the kit, and attached them with some heavy gel medium!


Video:


DSC_0010_FRAMED

Here you can see where I used some of the “Crazing” medium from the Tim Holtz collage medium set in this months kit on the outside of the hat, which I then sprayed with the “Gossamer Gold” Moon Shadow Mist!

DSC_0002_FRAMED

DSC_0009_FRAMED

Two other touches for this piece were two small cabochons for the “buttons” on the hat and some glitter ribbon around the base!


In addition to items from the December Mixed Media Kit (in the following photo), I used:

Mixed media kit

Silhouette Design Store “Mourner’s 3D Top Hat” (ID #67665) Assembly Instructions for “Mourner’s 3D Top Hat”

Silhouette Cameo 3, Nicapa Mat, Premium Blade, ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board Snowflakes, AC Glitter Ribbon, FabriTac, JudiKins Diamond Glaze, Liquitex Super Heavy Gloss Gel, Art Glitter Glue, Spellbinder Tool n One, BEST 1/4” double sided tape, Tim Holtz Mini Snips, and Ranger Brayer

December Mixed Media Kit-Tres Jolie Kit Club-Poinsettia “Vase”

Hey, All! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!

 

For my first project using the December Mixed Media Kit, I altered an old jelly jar and added some faux floral pieces to create a rustic, winter/holiday décor piece!


DSC_0018-FRAMED

You can’t see it in the photos, but I used the last bit of my drywall tape with the holes from the kit across the top of the jar to help arrange my foliage and poinsettias! And, because the flowers aren’t glued in, I can switch them out if I want!


Video:


DSC_0020-FRAMED

I have so many different textures on my “vase”! I used the crazing medium and the grid drywall tape from the kit, and some crackle paste and glitter from my stash to decorate the jar!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

As you can see, I used the crackle paste with the stencil from this months kit! I love the stencil from this month, it is a “simple” leaf pattern which makes if very versatile!

DSC_0023-FRAMED

The final coat on the piece was to spray it with (and roll it in!) the “Treasure Island Aqua” Moon Shadow Mist by Lindy’s Gang that came in the kit!
