November Tres Jolie Kits – Mixed Media – Altered Wings

Hello everyone! I’m up on the blog today sharing my altered wings, Guest Design Team project for Tres Jolie Kits, using the November Mixed Media Kit!


Before I added any mediums I separated the layers of “feathers” and used a little pair of jewelry wire wrapping pliers to add some random curls to random feathers. I didn’t have a plan, I just picked a feather and curled!

Watch me here:


I loved the turquoise, Inka-Gold paint from Viva Decor that came in this months kit, as you can probably tell from these wings! I found a way to use it just about everywhere! I added it to the wings, the pieces behind the flowers, and I watered it down to add to three of the kraft colored flowers from the 16 piece Prima® flower set that also came in the November Mixed Media Kit.


One of my favorite product types in the mixed media world is any type of “crackle” product, so I was more than happy to see the bottle of DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint in the November kit! After gluing my various Prima® Trinkets together (which I might add, all came from previous Tres Jolie kits!) with some E6000® I added a layer of gesso, let it air dry, and followed with a nice, thick layer of the DecoArt® Media™ Crackle Paint. I let the Crackle Paint air dry before adding the turquoise Inka-Gold paint.


I didn’t gesso the Creative Embellishments chipboard piece because I wanted the natural brown to come through to go with the rustic feel of the wings. I just used water and the silver mica powder by Prima® from the kit, to give a random coating.


For the final touches I gave a light dusting of the glitter from the kit by brushing on some Ranger® Glossy Accents on the Trinkets, chipboard, and flowers before sprinkling on the glitter.

Here you can see how I used the Inka-Gold paint to complement the patina that came on the wings. I didn’t want to cover all of the patina effect, but I also wanted the wings to “match” my flower cluster a little.
