Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!
Today I’m bringing you my first project of November using the Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club and just a few staple items from my stash!
For this project, I have put together a follow-along video to accompany it. Maybe I should say I have made a video that tracks my thought process since I tend to think about my steps as I go along! I hope it makes sense to you though and inspires you to create your own project!
I grabbed up a piece of scrap black cardstock to back the parts of the Decorative Paper I wanted to fussy cut-out, used my gel medium to adhere and coat everything, and added some of the paint for color.
I used the stencil on the background, first with some heavy gel for texture, then with some of the Matte Black Wax for contrast. I also added a butterfly to the clip and coated it all in the wax. You can also see where I added a final splatter of the Lucky Clover Distress Paint to the background.
I quickly created some rolled flowers to cut out of the watercolor paper I had added the two Distress Paints to, you’ll find a JPEG below for your own use if you so choose.
Rolled flowers for personal use:
I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with the items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit! Be sure to check out Tres Jolie all over social media (links below).
