Mixed Media Place-June 2020 Challenge-Green Dragon

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you an altered hoop I made for the June 2020 Challenge over at Mixed Media Place. I didn’t use a traditional embroidery hoop for this project, I just happened to have, what I believe was, an old Tri-Chem® hoop. It conveniently came with a metal insert, so I had a nice sturdy surface to work on!

DSC_0030-WM

My original idea for this project looked nothing like what came about; I hadn’t even considered a dragon originally! I had originally planned to go with a nature theme, but when I was looking through my chipboard to see what types of leaves I might have, I came across the dragon, thought, “Hey! Dragons can be green…,” and from there I just went with it. Check out my process video below the Mixed Media Place Challenge Board to see how it all went together.

Now, for a few close-up photos:

The chipboard dragon from Creative Embellishments was what started my inspiration for my project.

I used two Prima/Finnabair paints on the dragon, Opal Magic “Green-Gold” and Sparks “Fairy Wings.”

DSC_0035-WM

DSC_0031-WM

It wasn’t a full pack of flowers, but I hadn’t used very many of the 49 & Market “Emerald Isle” previously; this project finished my pack off.

I love all of Finnabair’s Rust Effect Pastes in their original colors, but this project called for a little sparkle to be added to them, so I watered down the Opal Magic paint and let it separate and pool at will.

I used a mix of Brea Reese Texture Pebbles and some (very) micro glass beads at final accents.

Here you can see just how VERY micro those yellow glass microbeads are.

DSC_0034-WM

The stencil I used on the background is one I made quite a while ago in Silhouette Studio and cut with my Cameo 3 (which wasn’t easy on stencil material!) The iridescent beads are “Citrus Breeze” from ReneaBouquets.

Thank you for joining me here in my little corner! I hope you enjoyed this project!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Art Deco

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a décor piece I made for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using items from my stash, some epoxy, and the A.B. Studio chipboard & cut apart sheet and alcohol inks from this month’s kit.

DSC_0015-FRAMED

Waiting for the epoxy to set up was the most time-consuming part of this project, and the second most time-consuming part was trying to decide how to arrange the clusters. As you’ll see in the video below, I went through a few arrangements!


Video:


DSC_0033-FRAMED

Before pouring the epoxy, I coated the chipboard piece with some Lindy’s Embossing Powder.

DSC_0020-FRAMED

I just added drops of the alcohol ink to the epoxy and “dragged” the color around, but didn’t mix it in thoroughly, creating the ribbons of color.

DSC_0029-FRAMED

The clusters are made up mainly of the pieces cut from the A.B Studio sheet that came in the kit, but I added some odds and ends from my stash (that I had collected from previous Tres Jolie Kits!).

DSC_0022-FRAMED

As a note, the gel medium behind the cabochons eventually dried transparent!

DSC_0038-FRAMED

I set this up in a window so you could see how the light shines through.

I hope you enjoyed my project this week, and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with the alcohol inks. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for more projects from the other members of the Tres Jolie Design Team and join our Facebook Group to see other subscriber’s projects!

Tres Jolie Kit Club – *Follow Along With Us* – July Mixed Media Kit-A Day At the Beach

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you my first project for the Tres Jolie Kit Club for this month using the Mixed Media Kit. Recently, we have had some requests for more detailed instructions for the projects we create, so last month we started the “Follow Along With Us” series, where each month we will focus on a different kit and create a project using only items from that kit, staple items (i.e. glues), and/or household items (ex: isopropyl [rubbing] alcohol). For this project, I created a video to follow along with and I hope I didn’t overexplain or underexplain anything!

DSC_0081-FRAMED

Because alcohol inks dry so quickly, this was a rather quick project to put together! I just grabbed up my gel medium to adhere the flowers and photo, which I mounted on some cardboard for rigidity and my rubbing alcohol, that works well as an alcohol ink blending solution.

Check out my video for the full details and process, and make it with me!


Now, how about some close-ups?

DSC_0085-FRAMED

The top of the larger flower cluster on the left of the photo. You can also see some of the blending between the three alcohol inks, and the splattering of the “Snow Cap” Mixative.

DSC_0095-FRAMED

A close-up of the blending for the sky. As you can see, the splatters give a sense of depth depending on how much the “Snow Cap” reactivated the color behind it.

DSC_0097-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this project and it helped you in using the items from the kit this month! Make sure you keep an eye out each month for more of our “Make It With Us” videos and/or written instructions! I’ll be back next week with my project using that beautiful art deco chipboard from A.B. Studio.

Fairy Carousel-Creative Embellishments June 2020 Challenge

Hey, all! I got to feeling rather ambitious this month and decided that I wanted to make myself a Fairy Carousel using the carousel from the Carousel Ride SVG Kit by SVGCuts. The original carousel is a cupcake holder, but I didn’t need to hold cupcakes, I just needed a place for my Fairies from Creative Embellishments to go for a ride!

DSC_0063-wm DSC_0040-wm

With all the shine from the epoxy and embossing powder, I just had to add a string of lights! Check out the video below the Creative Embellishments Challenge image.

june-ch-1024x819



After I followed the assembly instructions on SVGCuts, I coated everything in epoxy (in stages!), attached my fairies, added the filigree, ran the lights, and added the flatbacks! Most of the time spent on this project was waiting for the epoxy to dry and the carousel assembly.

Here are some close-ups:

The amount of 12×12 paper/cardstock I used for my carousel (I’m 99.9% sure I counted them all!)

5 patterned paper

3 pink cardstock

10 teal-ish cardstock

5 beige/ivory cardstock

1 8×8 gold cardstock


Products Used:

Sunset Dolphin-Lindy’s Gang June 2020 Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner of the Internet!

Today I’m bringing you an altered mirror from Dollar Tree for the Lindy’s Gang June 2020 Color Challenge!

DSC_0043-wm

I used a lot of Lindy’s Gang products just to make the three colors for the challenge! I know I only two are required, but I like trying to get everything in! The “Guten Tag Teal” Embossing Powder is the only Lindy’s product I own that was a match all on its own, I had to create the bright green and orange-ish coral, which I show in the video (below the Lindy’s Challenge board), plus I’ll add the details to the other photos on this post.

The Lindy’s Gang Challenge Color Board.



DSC_0031-wm DSC_0033-wm
For the coral flowers, I mixed “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shaker, “Magical Mai Tai” Flat Magical, and “Plumeria Pink” Flat Magical powders. While the flowers were still wet, I sprinkled on “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shaker in the center. For the bright green flowers, I made a spray of the “Aloha Avacado” Flat Magical, but I didn’t think it was quite bright enough, so I also sprayed the flowers with “Pineapple Paradise” Flat Fabio Sprays.
DSC_0030-wm DSC_0035-wm
Fortunately, I had a few teal flowers that matched the “Guten Tag Teal” Embossing Powder I used on the ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board and in the center of the green flowers. For the frame around the mirror, I mixed the same colors I used on the coral flowers into some Liquitex Gel Medium and brushed it on. Then I spritzed it with water and sprinkled on more of the “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shaker.
DSC_0032-wm DSC_0036-wm
I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do with the mirror, but I didn’t want to leave it as it was, then in finally dawned on me to use my alcohol inks! For the sunset sky, which needed to match the coral, I used “Sunset Orange” and “Flamingo.” For the water, which needed to match the teal, I used “Patina,” and to make my wave caps I used the “Pearl” mixative. I made a stencil from some scrap cardstock and a cut file from the Silhouette Store (ID# 297497) and used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse “Black Ash” to create the dolphin.

DSC_0024-wm

And there you have it. I used a simple mirror from Dollar Tree and spruced it up using a lot of Lindy’s Gang products!

Thank you for joining me here in my corner!!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Altered Box

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you my third, Tres Jolie Kit Club, Mixed Media Kit project of June, an altered box. I’ve been keeping this box around since I ate the candy that was in it back in December. I knew I’d eventually find a way I wanted to use it!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

It took me building up a few layers of mediums to get the look I wanted, check out the video below to see how it all (finally!) came together.


DSC_0005-FRAMED DSC_0006-FRAMED

To the lid of the box, I added some ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board & “Candy” (flatbacks), cabochons, resin flowers from my stash, and some of the glass glitter that had come in the April 2020 Mixed Media Kit. For the roses, I used Lindy’s Magical Powder to give them their color, and the Gilding Polish on the cabochons.

DSC_0009-FRAMED

You can see how I made a double crackle effect by layering some Tim Holtz “Crazing” Distress Medium (from my stash) on top of the Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Paste from this month’s kit. Then, to really bring out the “Crazing” cracks, I rubbed in some of the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish from the kit.

DSC_0008-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this project, and that it gave you some ideas of what the mediums can do that came with this month’s kit! I’ll see you again in July!

Hello Spring-June 2020 More Than Words Challenge-Hello and Doors & Windows

Hi, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

It took me three different background attempts to finally get this all together. This was one of those projects where I had an idea, but I was having trouble getting it from my head to my hands. I finally succeeded though, and I have my layout for the June Challenge (Hello and Doors & Windows) on the More Than Words blog.

DSC_0027-WM

This month I added the word part of the challenge right to the photo with my title. The photo is very representative of “hello spring” because I took it in March 2019 when I was walking to my mailbox one afternoon. My driveway is a half-mile long, and up until I came to where this bush is it had still been a rather drab walk with all the trees still winter brown. Then I got to this bush, with its white flowers blooming and butterflies fluttering all about! Spring was telling me hello! For the “Doors & Windows” part of the challenge, I used some window chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments, coated in “Orange Blossom” embossing powder from Ranger, and placed them in my clusters.

(Below the More Than Words Challenge image, you’ll find a little process video and a few close-ups.)

06 June - Hello & Doors and Windows



DSC_0035-WM DSC_0049-WM

I wanted to add some texture, but I didn’t want it to necessarily “stand out” so I opted to use colors similar to the papers I was using.

DSC_0046-WM DSC_0052-WM

I love the “Dreamland” collection from A.B. Studio, and most of this layout is made up of papers and cut-apart pieces from it. The only pieces from “Vintage Elements 1/2” are the black and white roses, which I think added just enough “separation” between the elements cut from “Dreamland.”

DSC_0060-WM DSC_0043-WM

I love texture so I added texture pebbles, glass microbeads, sequins, and some cabochons. I also splattered some “Spun Sugar” Distress Oxide on the layout (I love that the Oxides can be used on light and dark backgrounds!).

I hope you enjoyed this project! Thank you for joining me in my little corner!!


Products:

A.B. Studio “Dreamland” & “Vintage Elements 1/2,” Creative Embellishments “Arched Windows Set of 2,” & “Arched Windows Set of 3,” Lindy’s Gang “Cosmic Pink Blue” Embossing Powder, TCW Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, Prima-Finnabair “Graphite” Texture Paste, Fabrika Decoru Stencils FDTR 36 & 132, Ranger-Wendy Vecchi “Orange Blossom” Embossing Powder, Ranger-Tim Holtz “Spun Sugar” Distress Oxide Spray, Prima Flowers Item# 635176, Brea Reese Texture Pebbles, Little Things from Lucy’s Cards “Warm Golden Glow,” Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Ink, Scotch ATG, Liquitex Clear Gesso, FabriTac, Art Glitter Glue, JudiKins Diamond Glaze, Unbranded Gold & White Microbeads

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-“Today”

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today for the Tres Jolie Kit Club, I’m bringing you, well, “Today”!! A kind of shabby, kind of rustic memo board I created using items from the kit, items from my stash, and some scrap door casing.

DSC_0010-FRAMED

I love how the crackle paint came out on this! I gave me the aged look I was really wanting! Check the video to see how everything went together!



As I mentioned in the video, this project went together rather quickly! I let the flowers air dry so the color could bleed how it wanted, and with the help of my heat gun the mediums were dry in no time!

Here are some close ups of that beautiful cracking:

DSC_0014-FRAMED DSC_0017-FRAMED
DSC_0019-FRAMED DSC_0011-FRAMED

Aren’t those cracks just amazing? I think it’s some of the best cracking I’ve had. Ever!

DSC_0013-FRAMED

I love the bit of sparkle with the Lindy’s Magical Powder, it goes so well with that shine from the Metallic Gilding Polish.

DSC_0015-FRAMED DSC_0018-FRAMED

To get that aged look on the frame I layered the crackle paste on top of a coat of the Lindy’s Magical Powder. Because the Lindy’s is water-based it was easily reactivated and absorbed by the paste!

DSC_0020-FRAMED

This isn’t in the video, because I thought of it later, but I added a light coating of some Tim Holtz Matte Collage Medium on clothes pin that has the polish. Just enough to add some protection to being touched!

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done using items from this months kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Cards, Tags & More Kit-Envelope Notebook

Hi, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you a little journal I created using the Simple Stories line that was in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. As soon as I saw the kit I knew what I wanted to do with those papers, frames, and stickers! I didn’t go in with a plan of action, just a vague goal for the finished product, but I eventually made my way through all my own confusion and got it done!

DSC_0066-FRAMED

Those chipboard frames made perfect window pockets! Check out my video to get an idea of what I did! And below the video, you’ll find photos of the pages! I think it is easier to “explain” this project with the video, especially since it is mostly just clueing papers down, but I do give a bit of an overview as I work on the first couple of pages. If you just want to see the end result, I do a final overview around the 37:40 mark.
