Tres Jolie Kit Club-May 2020 Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m bringing you a quick little layout I created for this month’s sketch challenge for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

I had a very craft-filled May, and by the time I got to this project I had one whole sheet of the beautiful Craft o’Clock paper left! There was a time when the thought of using such a “busy” pattern as a background would have terrified me, but I have learned sometimes less is more, so I kept everything else simple! (Sketch below the video)

Check out my video for the process!

May 2020 Sketch

DSC_0002-FRAMED

Behind the smaller cluster in the upper-left corner and behind the photo layers I added a touch of stenciling using the “Golden Glaze” paint (mixed with some 13@rts MAGIC! Powder) and a homemade texture paste that contains some of the “Caribbean Teal” paint, both [paints] from this month’s mixed media kit. Also, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the teal flowers on this layout were from the Prima “vine” that came in the kit! Don’t be afraid to cut things apart if needed to make them work better for your purpose!

DSC_0007-FRAMED

I didn’t want to just plant the photo directly on the background, so I used some torn pieces of papers from the kit, some tissue paper, and the square, white frame from the chipboard (cut apart!) behind the photo! Then I added one of the chipboard tabs!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

The beautiful black and gold butterflies were the final touch needed for this layout! They provide just the right amount of accent!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Moodboard–Art Journal

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I have an Art Journal spread I created based on this month’s mood board challenge for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!

**Note: The photos are pinker than in real life, the video shows the colors much better. What I’ve learned is to be more awake when editing…

DSC_0001-FRAMED
I have a little something from every May kit on this 2-page spread! Mediums from the Mixed Media kit, the clock & papers from the Scrapbooking kit, and papers from the Cards, Tags, & More kit!

Here is the mood board, and below it, you will find a video!

Mood Board


Check out my video to see how I did this spread & to get a better representation of the colors!


DSC_0002-FRAMED

Here is a close-up of the left page. Some of the papers were torn, some were cut with a circle die, and I fussy cut the phrase!

DSC_0003-FRAMED

Here is the right page. The chipboard clock came from the May 2020 Scrapbooking kit and I painted it with the “Caribbean Teal” paint from the May 2020 Mixed Media kit! The gold stenciling is the “Golden Glaze” paint, also from the May 2020 Mixed Media kit, mixed with some 13@rts MAGIC! Powder.

DSC_0008-FRAMED

The more teal colored papers came from the scrapbooking kit, while the soft rose-colored papers are from the Cards, Tags, and More kit! (Below are photos of all three kits!)

Tres Jolie Kit Club-May 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Butterfly Reels

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing you my “Butterfly Reels” project where I used three of the VHS reels, the mediums, and the package of Prima Mechanicals, along with items from my stash, to build this steampunk piece!DSC_0008-FRAMED

I am very happy with how this piece came out! I love mixing the patina and rust effect with the non-aged look of the reels and flowers! Check out the video to see the whole process!


Video:


DSC_0030-FRAMED

In the above photo you can see the ripples created by the paint pour!

DSC_0027-FRAMED

I love Prima’s Rust Effect Paste, and I’m glad I had some on-hand to use with the Mechanicals from this month’s kit! Plus, those butterflies were what I had left from the March Mixed Media Kit!

DSC_0029-FRAMED

I knew parts of my chipboard would overhang, so to give it some extra stability I used “Prima Sculpture Medium” before adding the Rust Effect Paste!

DSC_0031-FRAMED

The longest parts of this project were all the drying times, so I would just set it aside while the glues and mediums dried so I could work on other projects! My final touch was adding some Teal Glass Beads from ReneaBouquets on top of each stack of Mechanicals!


May 2020 Mixed Media Kit

In addition to items from this months kit (*From previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used:

Tres Jolie Kit Club-iNSD 2020 Challenge-Masculine Layout

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Here are some more photos and a video of the project I did for Rae’s “Masculine Layout” challenge, sponsored by the Tres Jolie Kit Club, for International Scrapbooking Day (iNSD)!

To recap, the challenge was to create a masculine layout that included stenciling and chipboard, plus a bonus for using flowers! I used four stencils, I have a piece of chipboard from the May scrapbooking kit and some Grungeboard from my stash, and I got the flowers on…something that isn’t always easy with a “masculine” layout! Plus, and I like to think my subconscious was helping me out here, my layout fits this months sketch challenge (with the sketch rotated 180°, shown below).

Check out my video to see what I did!



 

DSC_0009-FRAMED DSC_0011-FRAMED
I layered my stenciling on top of each other before topping with my Grungeboard chevrons! With all the stenciling, there was already so much going on that I opted to keep it relatively simple around the photo.
DSC_0010-FRAMED DSC_0014-FRAMED
I created the colors I wanted for both of the texture pastes using the paints from the Mixed Media kit & items from my stash (see video for full details!) The chevrons were painted with just simple black gesso (from the Mixed Media kit! to keep them nice and matte!
DSC_0008-FRAMED DSC_0013-FRAMED
Getting flowers on a masculine layout isn’t always easy, but I dug into my stash and pulled out pack of neutral flowers. I don’t know how long I’ve owned those Tim Holtz Framed Words, but I found a place for “Adventure” with this layout!

I hope that you were able to join us over at Tres Jolie for the iNSD challenges! I also hope that this layout gave you an idea of what can be done with items from the kits this month, and with the sketch!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Grunge Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing you my first official project of the month using the May Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club! (I say official because some of the mediums made their way onto my projects for the iNSD challenges over this past weekend!)

For my first project I made a Steampunk/Grunge piece using the canvas, the mediums, one of the VHS reels, and the pack of Prima Trinkets.

DSC_0012-FRAMED

My thought process for the coloring was rather simple! I was just sitting and staring at the mediums and ended up thinking “Yellow & Blue make Green!” Or in this case, gold and blue make teal!!

Check out the video to see how I put all this together:


Now, how about some close-ups?

DSC_0014-FRAMED DSC_0020-FRAMED
I made built up some texture paste at the upper left and lower right corners before adding the wax and paint! I had a mix of chipboard and metal embellishments, but brought them together with paint!
DSC_0022-FRAMED DSC_0026-FRAMED
I stacked and stacked to give dimension to my canvas and added three contrasting Prima Pebbles as a final touch! Even though I have a lot of different textures, keeping with the same color as the paint kept it from being overwhelming!

DSC_0021-FRAMED

I hope this project gave you some ideas of what you can do with items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit! I’ll be back on YouTube and the blog on the 15th with another Mixed Media project! Keep an eye out for projects from the other Tres Jolie Designers! And don’t forget to visit the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café and check out the sketch and mood board challenges!

iNSD 2020 – Tres Jolie Kit Club–BINGO!

Hi, all! Welcome back to my blog! I hope you were able to join us over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café and enjoyed the challenges offered!

I created a BINGO challenge, and am now sharing the details of that challenge here on my personal blog! (I didn’t want to cause “entry” confusion during the challenge!)

BINGO! Challenge Guidelines & my examples:

Now, to the requirement! It’s rather simple, all you need to do is have all five (5) elements of the one (1) row OR one (1) column OR one (1) diagonal that you choose included on your project!

You are not limited to only those five (5) elements, but all five (5) must be included!

iNSD2020-BINGO-TresJolieKitClub-SAMPLE


I have put together a couple of examples for you to view; a layout, a mini-journal/notebook, and a mixed media canvas. You do not have to create any specific project type! These are just some examples of what can be done!


First, the layout:

There are flowers on the cover and on the patterned papers, the staples and eyelet are metal, there are three half-back beads on the cover, as well as a chipboard frame around “Notes,” and the mini-paper clips are wooden!


My third example is a mixed media project featuring a photo of my son’s friend! (With her permission, of course!)

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Spring Plank

Hi, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing you a spring themed plank I put together using items from my stash and the April Mixed Media Kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club!

DSC_0014_FRAMED

I just used a bit of old board for my background, added some gesso, then started layering! Check out the video for the whole process!


Video:


DSC_0015_FRAMED

For the background color I used the two Magical Shakers from the kit like watercolors. On the chipboard diamonds and window I sprinkled them on then spritzed them with some water.

DSC_0016_FRAMED

I mixed the glass glitter from the kit with some gel medium then just spread it on randomly to add some shine to the piece.

DSC_0019_FRAMED

With the background done, it was just a matter of layering the other parts of my piece!

DSC_0018_FRAMED

My final addition was a few of the pearls from the kit. I put them on 3” (76mm) pins and them stuck them in where I wanted them.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Spring Flower Pots

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I have some spring flower pots I decorated for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using items from this month’s mixed media kit and multiple partial packs of flowers from my stash!

DSC_0033_FRAMED


Below is the video of what I did! This project was rather quick and simple, and in no time I had a lovely trio of flower pots to help bring in spring!


Video:


DSC_0029_FRAMED DSC_0032_FRAMED

To coat my flower pots I mixed some texture paste with the gesso and texture powder from the kit. After that dried, I spritzed the pots with water, sprinkled some of the “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shakers on, and spritzed some water on again. When that dried, I sprayed the flower pots with ModPodge Acrylic Sealer to keep the Magical Shaker in place.

DSC_0026_FRAMED DSC_0027_FRAMED

Even though the bling from the kit is self-adhesive, I added some extra FabriTac before wrapping the tops of the pots, just to be safe!

I filled the flower pots with some floral moss from Dollar Tree, and was able to finish off three partial packs of flowers and a package of leaves!

DSC_0025_FRAMED

I hope this gave you some ideas of what can be done with this month’s kit! I spent $2 (+tax!) at the Dollar Tree for the 3-pack of pots and the bag of moss (and I still have lots of moss left!!), added items from this months kit, and cleared out some of my hoarded flowers to create this little spring décor piece!


April Mixed Media Kit

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

ModPodge Gloss Acrylic Sealer; FabriTac, Clay Pots; Floral Garden “Floral Moss”; *13@rts Gel Medium; *KaiserCraft Paper Blooms “Hot Pink”; *Prima Flowers Sunrise Sunset Collection Item# 565190; *Prima Flowers Item# 632564; *Prima Flowers North Pole Item# 590680

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Sketch Challenge–Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, all! Today I am bringing you the project I made for this month’s sketch challenge for the Tres Jolie Kit Club, using the April scrapbooking kit!

DSC_0046_FRAMED

As you can see I didn’t make a layout! I was totally obsessed with the clock face and flowers of the sketch, and I really wanted to create something 3D from those elements.

Here is the sketch, and under that, you will find the tutorial video!


April sketch


Video:


DSC_0048_FRAMED

I used some Prima Texture Fantasy Paste on my chipboard gears, and the embossing powder from the kit on my clock face, which I also back with some of the patterned paper from the kit.

DSC_0050_FRAMED

DSC_0047_FRAMED

On the flowers of the chipboard roses from the kit I used a combination of two embossing powders from my stash, and again used the embossing powder from the kit on the stems and leaves.

I also tucked in a few of the die cuts from the pack that came in the kit.

DSC_0051_FRAMED

DSC_0049_FRAMED

Inspiration can come from anywhere and can take you anywhere! For me I couldn’t quit focusing on the section around the photo on the sketch, and I let it take me down a non-layout road!
