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.
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!
I really wanted a ton of texture on my gear, so in addition to the stenciling I have some sisel and some texture beads.
I used the “Sunshine Yellow,” and “Sunset Orange” alcohol inks in the area where I would be placing the cluster.
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.
On a few of the other embossed, cut-out pieces I used some of the “Snow Cap” Mixative.
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.
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!
