Tres Jolie Kit Club-May 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Summer Vase

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today my Tres Jolie Kit Club project is a summer vase using an upcycled jar, mediums from the mixed media kit, and papers from April’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!


I absolutely loved the Ciao Bella papers that came in April’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit! I loved, loved, loved the lemons with the dark blue! And it worked out that the Little Birdie wax in this month’s Mixed Media Kit was a perfect complement! Check out my video to see this summer vase come together!



After I coated the jar with the Little Birdie “Golden Glaze,” wrapped the papers around the jar, and adhered the image to the lid, I used Tim Holtz’s “Crazing” Medium (from my stash) as my topcoat. I then rubbed the Little Birdie wax all over, giving the “Golden Glaze” paint a blue hue and really bringing out the “cracks” from the “Crazing”!


The lid and lace are a permanent part of the piece! I used E6000 & some gel medium to hold it where I wanted, at the angle I wanted!


For the most part, I will try to upcycle anything! Who knows how old this jar was, but it has found a new purpose!
