Butterfly Lights

“Butterfly Lights”

In honor of her one year anniversary of Tres Jolie Kit Club, Kim had an online (Facebook) crop! The first challenge posted was a “bingo” challenge, and this is what I made using [most of] the products that came in the Tres Jolie June Mixed Media Kit!

Challenge #1 Scrapbook Bingo: Complete a project (card, scrapbook page, altered project, etc) using the any of the items list in a row. That row can be straight or diagonal. Upload your project to the Crop challenge file by Midnight (CST) tomorrow [June 9, 2019] for a chance to win a prize. You don’t have to use one of our kits, but it would be nice to see (just no promoting any other kits).

The row with the yellow box is my “BINGO!”

The breakdown:

  • Watercolor: I know, I know. HOW is there watercolor on there?!?! It was messy, but I added Concentrated Watercolors by Art Philosophy to the project (on top of the Acrylic Modeling Paste, which is where the Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer came in! I used it to keep those watercolors in place after they dried!!)
  • Twine/String: Jute String by Tim Holtz on the top knob
  • Wire: Wire lights by Prima
  • Beads: Teal Glass Beautiful Beads by ReneaBouquets
  • Glitter: Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass by ReneaBouquets
The good news, I’ve managed to (finally) make my computer capable of recording videos!
The bad news? I haven’t edited the video for this project yet! (limited project submission time and all)
BUT…I’m going to edit it! I swear!!

UPDATE: I finished the editing…sorta. I mean, there’s video, but no sound [Update #2: I added music after my son said it was “creepily quiet” LOL!]. By the time I “dealt” with my computer I was too tired of trying. Plus, it’s been many, many years since I’ve played with video editing, and I am still trying to get my groove back! As I continue recording projects I do, the videos should theoretically improve…but for now, here is the video that has had almost 4 hours shaved off!

Here are some photos!
