Tres Jolie Kit Club-December Mixed Media Kit-Holiday Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

My first project for December is this silver and gold Holiday Canvas I created using the items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club, with just a few staple items to go along and a cut file to use as a template for my poinsettias.

This project was rather simple to go together! There was a bit of elbow grease used to roll out the clay for my poinsettias, but after I knew what direction I was headed it just came together! Check it all out in my video:

After I really smooshed the clay into the Prima Mould I let it start drying to make it easier to pull out of the mould. I also found that I could bend the mould some and let those pieces dry before taking them out. The mould flattens back out, while the ornaments stay curved! If my word-y description is clear as mud, I show my methods in my video!

For my poinsettias, I used a cut file from the Silhouette store to make templates that I pressed into some rolled out clay and cut out with a craft knife, then hand-shaped and set aside to dry. The centers of the poinsettias are just some little balls of the clay I rolled with my fingers before letting them dry.

After my clay pieces were all in place I coated everything with the silver paint from the kit. Then things got really wet when I just started adding on the PearlEx powders! There was a lot of water, a lot of letting the powders flow how they wanted, and a lot of heat gun use! (And yes, in the video you see me using two heat guns to get the job done!)
