Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2021 Moodboard: “Be Happy” Mixed Media Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my moodboard inspired project; a mixed media canvas using items from both the July Mixed Media Kit and the July Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club! Pink flowers, gold veining, and butterflies were my inspiration from the moodboard, so I gathered my supplies and just went with it!

I love moulds, so I was super excited when I saw that the Mixed Media Kit came with a fabulous Stamperia frames mould! Be sure to check out my video to see how I used the mould and how my canvas came together! (Note: Although I found it unnecessary with the Amazing Cast Resin, you can use various household products to help release the frames from the mold, such as baby powder, corn starch, cooking spray, and mica powder. Personally, I think the cooking spray is best for resins, and powders [would be] best for clays – because the resins absorb powders.)

I used the Dina Wakley paints from the Mixed Media kit on my background, baseboard doll, chipboard butterfly, and frame—along with lots of water in some areas to make the paints more translucent! I added just a touch of Vintage Gold wax to the frame details and wing edges.

I brushed some gel medium along the edges of the flowers to hold the gold microbeads in place, adding just a bit of detail and texture to the flowers! Then I dug into my stash and grabbed all three of my art stone bottles (mega, regular, & mini) and started adding them on. I like to sprinkle my art stones in place before adding the Diamond Glaze—that way I can get my placement down before making it permanent.

As my final touch, I used a metallic gold pen from my stash to add some gold “veining” along the edges of my torn paper and to circle the epoxy dots from the kit.
