This week I’m bringing you a little panel I created using items from the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s September Mixed Media Kit and items from my stash!
The script on my background is from the Finnabair “Read My Letter” stencil from my stash, but I did use the TCW Gel from this month’s kit with it.
This project went together rather quickly and easily, to see how it was done, check out my video!
After I had all the parts I wanted glued down to my background (the TCW Gel from the kit makes a great glue!) I coated it all with some white gesso, then started adding on my mediums; starting with the Lindy’s Gang from the kit.
I mixed the beads from the kit with more of the TCW Gel and brushed them onto the Prima flower vine. It makes me think of water droplets on the petals!
As you saw in the video, I was able to use items from previous Tres Jolie Kits to put this panel together! I love the fact that at the “end” of my Mixed Media Kit I have mediums left to add into my stash and use at a later date!
I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit!
Prima/Finnabair “Read My Letter” Stencil, *Mechanicals “Flowers,” *Opal Magic Wax “Vintage Silk,” *Metallique Wax “Vintage Gold,” Heavy White Gesso, Tim Holtz 7” Scissors, a piece of scrap material that had been used as packing material!
Today I’m bringing you a Loaded Envelope I made using the Tres Jolie Kit Club September scrapbooking kit & moodboard! I just love the “Industrial Romance” papers from ScrapBoys in this month’s kit. They are the perfect combination of steampunk & flowers, and just great to look at and play with!
I used the solid cardstock (from my stash) to build the envelope, then used the papers from the kit on the envelope, tags, and wands. Check out the video below where I describe the completed envelope. Below the video you will find the September Moodboard and some more photos!
Here is my envelope with three pockets. The final size is 9in x 6in (after all the photos I have included a sketch of the measurements), with the second pocket 4 1/2in and the third pocket 3in. The sketch is the measurements for the basic construction, the only thing no included in the sketch is the 9in x 6in piece of cardstock I used as the top of the back pocket; the one folded down with the zipper.
This is the front and back of the shaker wand I created using a ReneaBouquets Small Shaker Box. I used the professor from the Tim Holtz “The Professor” stamp set (from my stash) on the back piece of acetate and one of the small wings from the Mechanicals found in this month’s kit as the mustache, then back that with a square of paper from the ScrapBoys stack in the kit. The large key in the shaker is from this month’s kit, but all the other parts are from my stash. For the back, I added Tim Holtz’s “Voltage” die, which is painted using Prima’s “Steampunk Copper” Paint and spray with the Lindy’s Gang from the kit. And all of the copper “welding”? It’s Tulip Fabric Paint – Beads In A Bottle – “Copper”!
For the Hummingbird Wand, I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store, a Tim Holtz Rosette, some pieces from the cut apart sheet, and a ReneaBouquets Hummingbird. For the lacy wand, I just grabbed up some lace from my stash and added another Tim Holtz Rosette and a cut apart pieces as well.
And finally here are the tags and little note card I made to go in the pockets! I just eye-balled the sizes based on the paper I was working with!
The measurements for my envelope.
Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Tres Jolie kit! Don’t forget to join us for the moodboard challenge!
This week I am bringing you my project using the Prima “Alphabet Cards” ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit (the cards are not shown in the kit photo) from the Tres Jolie Kit Club.
To start, I haphazardly brushed on some clear gesso to all of the cards, sprayed them with the Lindy’s Gang Moon Shadow Mist from the kit, then started building up my layers. Check out the video to see how it all came about!
I dug into my collections of mediums (many of which came from previous Tres Jolie kits), and just started decorating my cards! I added some stenciling using the gel medium and glitter from this month’s kit, and topped it with some stamping. I then added some quick flower sketches to some of the ATCs, some (more) stenciling, and some painting. Then I just grabbed up some black gesso and traced over the printed letters on the cards to bring those alphabet back to the front!
I really didn’t have any rhyme or reason when I put these cards together, I just went with what I was feeling like using at the time!
I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with the ATC pack that came in this month’s Mixed Media Kit!
For my first Tres Jolie Kit Club project of the month, I’m bringing you my “Follow Along with Us” Birdcage! I made this project using only items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit; even the “glue” was the gel medium that came in the kit!
Want to see how it was all done? Check out my video below!
I mixed some of the beads into some of the gel mixed with the Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist and spread it on the back and bottom of the cage. For the outer base and the bars, I mixed more gel with some Moon Shadow Mist and brushed it on, like paint. In that photo above you can really see the purple from the Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist on the back panel!
For my bird, I brushed on a coat of the gel medium mixed with some of the Moon Shadow Mist, then sprinkled on some of the glitter. I also used the gel medium to adhere the bird to the cage bar!
After I placed my flowers where I wanted them (using the gel medium as the “glue”) I splattered some of the Moon Shadow Mist on them.
I hope you enjoyed this project and were able to follow along if you chose to! I’ll see you again soon with another project using the fabulous September Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie!
