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!

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!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you an album I made using the August 2020 Cards, Tags, & More kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club! This kit was aimed towards an album, providing the chipboard and album base pages needed to get you going with the paper & embellishments! And well the kit may have included a set of split rings and the pages were pre-marked for holes, I went a different route and used part of the chipboard to create a hard spine.

DSC_0038-FRAMED

Due to technical difficulties with sections of the process video, I decided to just create a walkthrough/flip-through of the final album. Check it out!


Video:


I used some White Artisan Cardstock from Country Craft Creations to build my cover and on my photo sleeves because it is a linen cardstock, making it nice and sturdy for creating hinges. To insert the pages, I used some Linen Hinging Tape from LineCo. It’s nice and thin, but because it is linen it will be able to take being used as a hinge! After I had my base put together I started adding in the patterened paper from the kit, then worked my way up to adding in the photo sleeves and card flip-outs. Finally, I added the embellishments I wanted on the inside pages before turning my attention to the cover.

For the cover I used the pearl strips from the kit, spacing them two inches to the center. Finally I created my flower cluster on the front cover and added on of the resin pieces where the seam binding was attached.

Now, how about some photos? I have the front and back covers first, followed by the pages in the order they are in the album.

Some of my flaps close with magnets (from my stash) and some have tie closures using the seam binding found in this months kit!

DSC_0039-FRAMED

Here are the measurements for the photo inserts. For reference, “Solid Cardstock” with the circles is the light purple cardstock in my album that I used from my stash, “Patterened Paper” with the circles is the paper from the kit, and the solid rectangles is the white linen cardstock from my stash that have an extra one-half inch for the flips.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Pen/Pencil/Paintbrush Holders

Hey, all! Welcome back to the my blog!

Today I’m bring you my third mixed media project of the month for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using items from this month’s Mixed Media kit. I decided to add a bit of decoration to my craft room by turning two cans into pen-pencil-paintbrush holders.

DSC_0109-FRAMED

My new paintbrush holders went together quickly and easily; most of the time I spent on these was dry time! Check out my video below to see how I did it all.


Video:


DSC_0112-FRAMED

DSC_0113-FRAMED

I, carefully, glued the mould pieces to my cans immediately after forming them (using some E6000) to make sure they were molded to the curve of the can.

DSC_0115-FRAMED DSC_0142-FRAMED

I grabbed up some crackle paint (from a previous Tres Jolie kit) and gave everything a nice coating. I didn’t add mould pieces all the way around my cans because, in my case, they are going to be against a wall, so I didn’t think it was necessary, but you can decorate your cans however works best for your style!

DSC_0118-FRAMED

I sprayed the three Distress Oxide Sprays on the cans, and after they were dry I used some Krylon Workable Fixatif before adding the Liquid Acrylic Paint and using the Lindy’s Magical Powder on the mould pieces.

As I mentioned in the video, I did a final seal on my cans using some Mod Podge Matte Acrylic Sealer, and I have since ran my cans under water and “scrubbed” them with my hands. I am happy to report that nothing came off!

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media kit! Stay Crafty, friends!

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

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

This week I am bringing you a layout I created for the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s August 2020 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!


August 2020 Tres Jolie Sketch:

August sketch


Process Video:

DSC_0015-FRAMED DSC_0036-FRAMED

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.

DSC_0010-FRAMED DSC_0016-FRAMED

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!

DSC_0006-FRAMED DSC_0007-FRAMED

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.

DSC_0026-FRAMED

If you haven’t checked out my video yet, that photo is of my grandmother and mother, which I edited and added that sparkle filter to.

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie! I hope my layout and take on this month’s sketch inspired you and gave you some ideas for your next project!

Fairy Moonlight – July 2020 Mixed Media Place Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you a little piece I did for the July 2020 Challenge over at the Mixed Media Place blog.

DSC_0013-wm-resized

Looking at the moodboard for this month I was immediately drawn to the mushrooms. I absolutely adore mushrooms in art. In food, I can tolerate them (except those white “button” mushrooms, Ewww), but in art I absolutely love them! In addition to the mushrooms, all the colors kept making me think of sunsets and the dusk of early evening. Check out my process video, which can be found under the Mixed Media Place Moodboard!

Process Video:


DSC_0016-em-resized

I have quite a few mediums making up my background; a couple of Jacquard Paints topped with three different Distress Oxide Sprays. For my moon and stars, I used two Prima/Finnabair paints, one of which is “Unicorn’s Hair,” which was also used for my splatter!

DSC_0019-wm-resized

I really loved the idea of just having a fairy silhouette looking at the night sky, so I grabbed up my Creative Embellishments chipboard, added some black gesso, but by the end, I decided to add a coat of “Charcoal Black” Matte Wax.

DSC_0017-wm-resized

I used “Burnt Sienna” Liquid Acrylic Paint to give some shadowy depth behind the mushrooms.

DSC_0012-wm-resized

To add a little extra to the moon and stars I lightly brushed on some “White Gold” Metallique Wax, and to give a little extra shine to the mushroom caps I added some “Heather Hills” wax on the front curves (if that makes sense!)

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August Mixed Media Kit-Altered Paintbrush

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

This week I have used items from the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s August Mixed Media kit, along with items from my stash, to create this altered paintbrush.

DSC_0106-FRAMED

I used the Prima Modeling Material with the Finnabair Mould to create the bust and flourishes, which I “painted” with the Lindy’s “Bayou Boogie Gold” Magical Powder, and after I prepared my paintbrush I used the Distress Oxide Sprays to add the background color. Check out my process video to see how everything came together!


Video:


DSC_0113-FRAMED DSC_0126-FRAMED

I used some Prima/Finnabair Crackle Texture Paste on my background (from my stash) with a couple of stencils I have collected from previous Tres Jolie kits! After the paste had dried I used the three Distress Oxide Sprays from this month’s kit to give the background some color. Plus, I finished off two packs of flowers, both of which I had been hoarding from previous Tres Jolie kits.

DSC_0109-FRAMED DSC_0108-FRAMED

I love the mould that came in the kit this month, and I especially love that it is an item I will be able to keep in my stash to use over and over again! Some items, like the glitter I sprinkled about from a previous Tres Jolie kit, will (eventually) run out, but that mould will be in my stash forever!

DSC_0105-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this altered paintbrush and I hope it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media kit! Stay crafty!
