Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Grunge Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing you my first official project of the month using the May Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club! (I say official because some of the mediums made their way onto my projects for the iNSD challenges over this past weekend!)

For my first project I made a Steampunk/Grunge piece using the canvas, the mediums, one of the VHS reels, and the pack of Prima Trinkets.


My thought process for the coloring was rather simple! I was just sitting and staring at the mediums and ended up thinking “Yellow & Blue make Green!” Or in this case, gold and blue make teal!!

Check out the video to see how I put all this together:

Now, how about some close-ups?

I made built up some texture paste at the upper left and lower right corners before adding the wax and paint! I had a mix of chipboard and metal embellishments, but brought them together with paint!
I stacked and stacked to give dimension to my canvas and added three contrasting Prima Pebbles as a final touch! Even though I have a lot of different textures, keeping with the same color as the paint kept it from being overwhelming!


I hope this project gave you some ideas of what you can do with items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit! I’ll be back on YouTube and the blog on the 15th with another Mixed Media project! Keep an eye out for projects from the other Tres Jolie Designers! And don’t forget to visit the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café and check out the sketch and mood board challenges!
