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!

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!

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!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August 2020 Mixed Media Kit-*Follow Along With Us*

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my “Follow Along With Us” project for the month using the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s August Mixed Media Kit. Now, I’m not going to lie, this project fought back! This was just one of those times that I was having problems getting my hands to do what my brain was picturing. As you’ll discover in the video, in the end, I had to do a voice-over to explain what I did, but I’m rather pleased with the end result!

DSC_0013-FRAMED

The stems are actually a rather happy accident. I didn’t originally plan for them to be “broken,” but when they came apart I realized I rather liked the look. Now, as I’ll also note in the video, I would paint the “Bayou Boogie Gold” Magical Powder on my mushrooms and stems before adding them to the canvas. If you do (and don’t add the “Antique Linen” first) they will match the flowers. If you do it the same way I did in the video then your mushrooms will look like mine here. When I was working on it I hadn’t planned to have them gold originally, but after I got them glued down I decided to make them pop off the canvas more! (Have I mentioned this project just wanted to fight me every step of the way? LOL!)

Check out my video and follow along!



DSC_0017-FRAMED DSC_0019-FRAMED

You don’t need a mould to use modeling material! I formed my stems and mushrooms by hand! I didn’t try to make them the same or perfect, I just played around with the modeling material until I liked what I made. (Which isn’t in the video due to this project fighting me the whole time! If I remember correctly, I thought my camera was running, but I was mistaken. Sorry!!)

DSC_0016-FRAMED DSC_0018-FRAMED DSC_0020-FRAMED

At some point in time, although I can’t say when exactly after everything this project put me through, I decided to cluster all the flowers from the mould together where the mushroom stems intersected!

Even though the acrylic sealer had an effect on the Oxide Spray, I can tell you that had not happened to me before, so I am thinking I should have set it aside longer to dry. I’m not disappointed, just surprised. And sometimes surprises work out!

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you an idea or two about how to use the items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie! Thank you for joining us and I’ll see you again soon!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you the junk journal I created using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club. I had such a blast making this journal, and even though I didn’t originally intend to kill the kit, as I kept going it became a personal challenge to see if I could get everything in!

DSC_0064-FRAMED

For the video I put the flip-through in at the beginning, then followed it up with the process. I hope you take a peek at it and enjoy it! Below the video I have added a few photos of the finished journal.


Video:


DSC_0065-FRAMED DSC_0071-FRAMED

I used the new Tim Holtz color, “Speckled Egg,” throughout the journal. It went beautifully with the Stamperia papers that came in this months kit. For the resin pieces I used some of the “Speckled Egg” oxide and embossing glaze, and some “Gathered Twig” Distress Crayon.

I pieced together the smaller “left-over” pieces to cover the “manila” colored tags that came in the kit and added some string from my stash.

DSC_0078-FRAMED DSC_0089-FRAMED

I cut out the ATC sized cards from the paper and attached them to one side of the popcorn bag that came in my kit! (Your bag may be different) I turned the two music prints into envelopes and added them in, and peeking out of this one is a little notebook I made from the largest left-over piece I had and some standard notebook paper.

The final page and inside of the back cover, which contains a flip out.

I hope you enjoyed this project and had a chance to see my process video, most of it is sped up, but I do stop to explain in quite a few areas! Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie!

July 2020 ReneaBouquets Paintbrush Swap

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you an altered paintbrush I made for the July 2020 ReneaBouquets Facebook Swap! My swap partner, Monica, has received it, so it’s safe to post now.

DSC_0001-WM

Below you’ll find a super quick process video of how it all came together. Most of my time was spent waiting for the glue to dry and working that texture paste on until it was right!


Video:


Here are a few close-ups:

DSC_0005-WM DSC_0004-WM

Those large stones are some decorative stones I picked up from Dollar Tree quite a few months ago, and I decided now was a good time to put them to use! The white texture pebbles are Brea Reese, and the gold ones are from ReneaBouquets.

DSC_0003-WM DSC_0002-WM

Those beautiful butterflies, fantastic flowers, and sweet fairy are all from ReneaBouquets. Renea’s watercolor butterflies are some of my favorites from her, the fairy Bell is my personal favorite of all her beautiful fairies, and I could never choose a favorite flower set!

“Make A Wish” (Birthday Layout) – Creative Embellishments July 2020 Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a layout I did for the July 2020 Creative Embellishments Challenge showcasing my son’s birthday – in 2011! I’m not that far behind in documenting (well, maybe I am), but this is a redo. My style and skill has changed quite a bit over the years, and sometimes I decide to “update” one of my layouts.

DSC_0069-WM

Check out my process video, under the Creative Embellishments mood board, to see how everything came together!

DSC_0094-WM DSC_0095-WM DSC_0092-WM

After I put down a layer of clear gesso, I added some Shimmerz where the three clusters would be getting set. And, I’m happy to say, I used up items from my stash!

DSC_0091-WM DSC_0083-WM DSC_0096-WM

I really love using black as an accent color on brightly colored layouts, and I think it worked perfectly with the colors, and the holographic foil by Prima that I used on the frames. (*Note: the pack from Creative Embellishments comes with three I believe, I had already used one so I had to use a different frame from my stash for the frame in the third cluster.)

I hope you enjoyed the video that shows my process as I put this layout together, and thank you for joining me here in my little corner!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July Mixed Media Kit-Use Your Wings

Hey, all!

Welcome back to my blog. Today I’m bringing you my final project for this month using the second transparent gear from A.B. Studio that came in the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s July Mixed Media kit, along with the alcohol inks from the kit and some items from my stash.

DSC_0100-FRAMED

For this project I really wanted to showcase the transparent nature of that A.B. Studio gear so I used a gel medium to add some texture while retaining the transparency. Check out the video below to see the whole process as I was doing it!


Video:


DSC_0103-FRAMED

I really wanted a ton of texture on my gear, so in addition to the stenciling I have some sisel and some texture beads.

DSC_0102-FRAMED

I used the “Sunshine Yellow,” and “Sunset Orange” alcohol inks in the area where I would be placing the cluster.

DSC_0110-FRAMED

I used clear embossing power on some of the cut-out pieces, then used the “Purple Twilight” alcohol ink and the “Snow Cap” Mixative to add some color to the mushroom tops and some of the flower clusters. When I sprayed the ink with some rubbing alcohol I just let it bleed out how it wanted. I didn’t dry to clean it up or move it.

DSC_0111-FRAMED

On a few of the other embossed, cut-out pieces I used some of the “Snow Cap” Mixative.

DSC_0109-FRAMED

I think the olive green on the butterfly and words was the perfect complementary color to use with the three colors of alcohol inks that came in this month’s kit.

DSC_0105-FRAMED

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media kit. I hope to see you again soon!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Moodboard-Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you a rather thick junk journal I created for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using the papers, frames, tag, and resin pieces that came in this month’s scrapbooking kit.

DSC_0004-FRAMED

I was inspired by Wendy’s Journal Adventure’s “The Caring Gardner Botanical Journal.” I don’t even know what I was looking for when I came across the video, but I loved how the first and last signatures were dedicated to pockets and flip-outs with the middle signatures dedicated to the pages to write on; I had always seen journals with the pocket and flip-out pages intermingled with the writing pages. I also loved the corrugated cardboard she used on the inside covers, which reminded me I had some KaiserCraft Corrugated Sheets from the October 2019 Tres Jolie Scrapbooking Kit. Check out a few photos, found below the flip-through video, to see how some of the pages are laid out.

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:

DSC_0032-WM

DSC_0038-WM

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.

DSC_0033-WM

DSC_0043-WM

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

DSC_0044-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!
