Tres Jolie Kit Club-October Scrapbooking Kit & Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you my sketch challenge project using this month’s scrapbooking kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. 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”!

DSC_0039-FRAMED

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?

DSC_0045-FRAMED

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.

DSC_0042-FRAMED DSC_0043-FRAMED DSC_0044-FRAMED

Using one of the 49 & Market flower pack 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.

DSC_0048-FRAMED

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-October Mixed Media Kit-Art Journaling

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I am bringing you an Art Journal spread I created using the mediums found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club.

I find Art Journaling can be freeing and relaxing. There isn’t a need to have a plan going in, I think it’s impossible to “make a mistake,” and you can practice with your mediums!

DSC_0011-FRAMED

In the video I go over the different items (also listed at the end of this post) I used to make this spread and I show the process involved.


Video:


DSC_0012-FRAMED DSC_0013-FRAMED

I first coated the pages in my art journal with some clear gesso, then started layering my stencils for the background – drying in between each layer. After my background was finished I just started drawing! The paints are no longer water reactive once they are dry, so I only worried about using my Workable Fixatif when I wanted my Stabilo pencils to stay put!

DSC_0021-FRAMED DSC_0015-FRAMED

I didn’t worry about trying to make everything “perfect,” I just went along adding color and designs as I felt the “need” for them. After the background stenciling I added my leafy vines, mushrooms, and leaf. I mixed some of the Nuvo Sparkle Spray with some clear gesso to make it more of a paint and (tried) using it to create some shadow effects and to color my leaf some. After I had it painted on I watered the remaining mixture down some and splattered it across the pages. The final step to the spread was to draw on the border around the pages.

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope this project gave you some ideas of what you can do with the mediums found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit!

In addition to items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit (*from previous Tres Jolie kits), I used:

Fabrika Decoru Stencil FDTR 162, *A.B. Studio Stencil, *TCW “Mini Art Deco Leaves” Stencil, Echo Park “Mini Leaves” Stencil, *Prima Waterbrush, Stabilo Black & White, Sharpie Pen – Black, Prima/Finnabair Heavy White Gesso, Liquitex Clear Gesso, Ranger Heat-It Craft Tool, Ranger Blending Tool, Krylon Workable Fixatif, Dina Wakley Media Journal 8” x 10”

Tres Jolie Kit Club-October Mixed Media Kit-Follow Along With Us

Hey, all! Welcome back to my Corner!

For my first project this month I am bringing you my Dreamcatcher for the Tres Jolie Kit Club! For this project I only used some white gesso from my stash in addition to the items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit, and I hope I have made the video in a way that you will be able to follow along with! I rarely know what direction a project is going when I start it, but I try to edit the video in a way that allows you to see the steps I took!

DSC_0004-FRAMED

Check out the video for my process of how I went about adding the color to my Dreamcatcher, and follow along if you’d like!


Video:


Pretty simple, right? But the results are just fabulous! And, as you’ll see as you use your Dina Wakley paints, a little bit goes a long way!

DSC_0017-FRAMED DSC_0012-FRAMED

Here on the main piece of the Dreamcatcher you can see how I created a rainbow effect using all four paints from the kit and blending where two colors met. After my paint was dry I used the Stickles from the kit to outline all of the edges.

DSC_0018-FRAMED DSC_0007-FRAMED

For the feathers I mixed some white gesso with the Nuvo spray from the kit and brushed it on. After that was dry I added my Dina Wakley paints, again blending where the colors met. For the final touch I brushed on a light coating of the stickles to give some sparkle all over the feather.

DSC_0020-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this quick & easy project using this month’s Mixed Media kit and I hope it gave you some ideas of what can be done with the mediums found in this month’s kit!

Thank-you!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-September Mixed Media Kit-Spinel Panel

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you a little panel I created using items from the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s September Mixed Media Kit and items from my stash!

DSC_0012-FRAMED

The script on my background is from the Finnabair “Read My Letter” stencil from my stash, but I did use the TCW Gel from this month’s kit with it.

This project went together rather quickly and easily, to see how it was done, check out my video!


Video:


DSC_0017-FRAMED DSC_0014-FRAMED

After I had all the parts I wanted glued down to my background (the TCW Gel from the kit makes a great glue!) I coated it all with some white gesso, then started adding on my mediums; starting with the Lindy’s Gang from the kit.

DSC_0016-FRAMED DSC_0018-FRAMED

I mixed the beads from the kit with more of the TCW Gel and brushed them onto the Prima flower vine. It makes me think of water droplets on the petals!

DSC_0013-FRAMED

As you saw in the video, I was able to use items from previous Tres Jolie Kits to put this panel together! I love the fact that at the “end” of my Mixed Media Kit I have mediums left to add into my stash and use at a later date!

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit!

Stay Crafty, Friends

September Mixed Media Kit:

Mixed media kit

In addition to items from this month’s Mixed Media kit (*from previous Tres Jolie kits), I used:

Prima/Finnabair “Read My Letter” Stencil, *Mechanicals “Flowers,” *Opal Magic Wax “Vintage Silk,” *Metallique Wax “Vintage Gold,” Heavy White Gesso, Tim Holtz 7” Scissors, a piece of scrap material that had been used as packing material!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-September Mood Board-Loaded Envelope

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a Loaded Envelope I made using the Tres Jolie Kit Club September scrapbooking kit & moodboard! I just love the “Industrial Romance” papers from ScrapBoys in this month’s kit. They are the perfect combination of steampunk & flowers, and just great to look at and play with!

DSC_0058-FRAMED

I used the solid cardstock (from my stash) to build the envelope, then used the papers from the kit on the envelope, tags, and wands. Check out the video below where I describe the completed envelope. Below the video you will find the September Moodboard and some more photos!

September 2020 Tres Jolie Kit Club Moodboard


DSC_0055-FRAMED

Here is my envelope with three pockets. The final size is 9in x 6in (after all the photos I have included a sketch of the measurements), with the second pocket 4 1/2in and the third pocket 3in. The sketch is the measurements for the basic construction, the only thing no included in the sketch is the 9in x 6in piece of cardstock I used as the top of the back pocket; the one folded down with the zipper.

DSC_0052-53-FRAMED

This is the front and back of the shaker wand I created using a ReneaBouquets Small Shaker Box. I used the professor from the Tim Holtz “The Professor” stamp set (from my stash) on the back piece of acetate and one of the small wings from the Mechanicals found in this month’s kit as the mustache, then back that with a square of paper from the ScrapBoys stack in the kit. The large key in the shaker is from this month’s kit, but all the other parts are from my stash. For the back, I added Tim Holtz’s “Voltage” die, which is painted using Prima’s “Steampunk Copper” Paint and spray with the Lindy’s Gang from the kit. And all of the copper “welding”? It’s Tulip Fabric Paint – Beads In A Bottle – “Copper”!

DSC_0049-FRAMED DSC_0050-FRAMED

For the Hummingbird Wand, I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store, a Tim Holtz Rosette, some pieces from the cut apart sheet, and a ReneaBouquets Hummingbird. For the lacy wand, I just grabbed up some lace from my stash and added another Tim Holtz Rosette and a cut apart pieces as well.


DSC_0054-FRAMED

And finally here are the tags and little note card I made to go in the pockets! I just eye-balled the sizes based on the paper I was working with!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-September Mixed Media Kit-ATCs

Hello, all! Welcome back to my corner!

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) from the Tres Jolie Kit Club.

DSC_0008-FRAMED

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!



DSC_0011-FRAMED

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!

DSC_0010-FRAMED

DSC_0009-FRAMED

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-September 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Follow Along With Us

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my first Tres Jolie Kit Club project of the month, I’m bringing you my “Follow Along with Us” Birdcage! I made this project using only items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit; even the “glue” was the gel medium that came in the kit!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

Want to see how it was all done? Check out my video below!


DSC_0003-FRAMED DSC_0004-FRAMED

I mixed some of the beads into some of the gel mixed with the Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist and spread it on the back and bottom of the cage. For the outer base and the bars, I mixed more gel with some Moon Shadow Mist and brushed it on, like paint. In that photo above you can really see the purple from the Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist on the back panel!

DSC_0002-FRAMED

For my bird, I brushed on a coat of the gel medium mixed with some of the Moon Shadow Mist, then sprinkled on some of the glitter. I also used the gel medium to adhere the bird to the cage bar!

DSC_0005-FRAMED

After I placed my flowers where I wanted them (using the gel medium as the “glue”) I splattered some of the Moon Shadow Mist on them.

DSC_0006-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this project and were able to follow along if you chose to! I’ll see you again soon with another project using the fabulous September Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie!

Under the Sea-ATCoins-Creative Embellishments August 2020 Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you an ATC Coin set I created for the August 2020 Creative Embellishments Challenge.

DSC_0022-wm

I have a quick process video to go along with this project, if you’d like to see how I put these together.


Process Video (potentially still uploading):


Here is the inspiration graphic from Creative Embellishments. I saw the challenge on the first of the month, and I just remembered “Mermaids” until I was finally able to get a project together! I love all things fantasy, so I knew I had to participate this month!

aug-chal


All-in-all I had about two hours of “work” put into the making of these (not including any air dry time), and I am very happy with how they came out!

I layered some gilding flakes on top of some homemade texture paste using Ranger’s Sticky Embossing Powder, added the “Mermaid Artist Trading Coins” to the base, glued down some shells, used some of Finnabair’s wonderful waxes, and added some 13 @rts microspheres as a finishing touch.

To me my Artist Trading Coins looked like they very well could have been coins sitting on the ocean floor!

Thank you for joining me in my little corner for this rather quick project! I hope you enjoyed it and I’ll see you again soon!

Stay Crafty!
