Tres Jolie Kit Club–November Mood Board + Mixed Media Kit

Hey, y’all! This week I grabbed up the Tres Jolie Kit Club November 2022 Mixed Media Kit, the burlap flowers from the Scrapbooking Kit, and a couple items from my stash to create a fabulous fall décor piece!

The only mediums I used for color were the four Stencil Butters that came in the kit – it was all just a matter of how I mixed and layered them to create the different shading.

Make sure you check out the video to catch all the details of what I did to bring my cornucopia to life!

This project really was rather simple – I let the stencil butter and the texture powder do the heavy lifting for me!

welcomeCornicopia-02

I didn’t use any gesso on the surface because I didn’t want too many layers that may make it more difficult for me to see the laser-cut details on the Tres Jolie cornucopia base. The first thing I did was grab up some artist’s tape and tape off the border between the edge of the filling and the basket, then I brushed a thin coat of the Chocolate Stencil Butter all over the basket. To start getting some detail built up, I mixed some of the Chocolate Stencil Butter with some texture powder and used some small round brushes to create the raised areas of the basket – or the areas that I thought of as raised!

welcomeCornicopia-03

Since I had a little of that mix left, I brushed it onto the lower part of the base then used a baby wipe to clean it up – just leaving some of the color behind to start filling in the areas between all of the foliage and produce.

Once all of the Chocolate Stencil Butter had dried, I started working with the Fern in the same fashion. I mixed in some texture powder and started building up the apple and some of the foliage. Then, to create some variations in shading, I mixed in some of the Eggplant Stencil Butter for the pear, and to create the darkest of the green, I added some of the Terra Cotta and Chocolate. Then I just brushed the Fern Stencil Butter on straight from the jar to add the light areas to the apple and pear and some lighter highlights to the foliage.

I also wanted to add a little more light coloring to the basket, so I brushed on my leftover mix, sprayed it down with water, and wiped up most of what was there – leaving just enough to add a hint of color besides the Chocolate.

welcomeCornicopia-04

The raised areas of the pumpkin are made up of some of the texture powder mixed with the Terra Cotta, and after that had dried, I came back with some of the Terra Cotta straight from the jar and filled in the smaller areas and I used my finger to rub a thin, uneven layer on top of the texture powder mix.

Since I loved the unevenness of using my finger to rub on the Stencil Butter, I decided to add some of the Terra Cotta to the cornucopia basket and rubbed on some of the Chocolate along the edges.

For all of the grapes (berries?) I used a cheap cake piping bag and tip with the Eggplant Stencil Butter and just created all of my “dots”! I think it made the process much quicker than if I had tried to use a brush. I just sprayed the surface of the Stencil Butter with water and made a little puddle to dip my finger in so I could smooth out any areas – so long as either my finger or the surface of the Stencil Butter was kept wet, my finger didn’t get stuck!! To really get those grapes to pop, I grabbed up my heat gun, and (for once) I purposely “overheated” my texture paste/stencil butter to create bubbles!

For the grape stems, I just mixed some texture powder, Eggplant, and Fern together and brushed it on. Then I watered it down and added that green-ish hew to the inside of the basket, and then used up the rest to give my metal “Welcome” a coating. Once again, I didn’t use any gesso, I just brushed my Stencil Butter directly on the surface. After that layer had dried, I used a soft brush and added some of the Eggplant to the upper half (and back) of the metal word.

welcomeCornicopia-05 welcomeCornicopia-07

For my stand, I up-cycled two of the hanging bars from a hanging file folder, bending one around to create the bottom and cutting the second in half to create the two uprights behind the cornucopia. I used some Gorilla Clear Grip to hold the metal in place, then came back with some 3D Matte Gel for extra adhesion and to hold the “Welcome” in place. I mixed some of the Chocolate Stencil Butter with some of the texture powder and some of the 3D Matte Gel for adhesive power, then brushed a layer onto the metal bars. I grabbed my heat gun up so I could get the surface of the mix dry, then added my flowers with some 3D Matte Gel.

After all of my gel had dried, I came back and just added some touch-up areas to the stand and word, then gave a coating of the Chocolate to the back for a more finished appearance.

welcomeCornicopia-06

That was it! It wasn’t a super complicated project, just a matter of mixing colors and trying to keep as much detail as possible! Thank you for joining me here in my corner, I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with your Mixed Media Kit this month!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Steampunk Top Hat–September 2022 Mood Board + Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, y’all! Have you checked out the Tres Jolie Kit Club September Scrapbooking Kit yet? Seen this month’s mood board? Both are fabulous! The kit has the “Gilded Steampunk” Collection from 3 Quarter Designs – the perfect fit for the “Shabby Steampunk” mood board challenge!

Now, I love, L-O-V-E, Steampunk, and while I’m not a 100% Shabby Chic type of person, there are aspects I really love about that style too. This week, for my mood board inspired project, I have a Shabby-Steampunk Top Hat I created using a cut file I designed, the “Gilded Steampunk” Collection from the kit, a couple of moulds, and lots of mediums from my stash – quite a few that are from previous Tres Jolie Kits!

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-01

It wasn’t until I was editing the video that I realized this project isn’t all too “complicated.” The majority of the time spent working on it was really just “busy work” – i.e. rolling clay, gluing, painting, etc. Once I had my base together, and finally figured out where this hat was headed, it went together rather smoothly! Check out my video and see what I mean!



Don’t forget to join the Tres Jolie Mood Board Challenge this month! Make sure to place your entry in the September 2022 Challenge folder on the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café Facebook page by 11:59pm CST on September 30, 2022, for your chance to win a prize!

Alright! Time to get talkin’ about this Shabby-Steampunk Top Hat!

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-14 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-07

The first thing to do was to put my base together. There aren’t too many pieces – I tried to keep it as simple as possible while creating the size I wanted while using my 12” x 12” cutting mat and cardstock. There really is only one way everything fits together, but I have included a photo for reference using the cut file.

topHat-aligned

After my cardstock base was together, I added some black gesso to all of the areas that I thought may or may not get covered by the patterned paper pieces – I did it mostly because I had used white cardstock, if I had used a darker cardstock or a coordinating cardstock, I don’t know if I would have added the gesso. However, it did also give a little extra stiffness to the base, so that was a bonus I hadn’t really thought of! And, even though it is no longer noticeable, I also added a layer of “Halo Pink Gold” Metallic Paint on top of the black gesso – just to be prepared in case any of those areas didn’t get covered in the later stages.

I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do for the inside of the hat, I just knew I didn’t want to just give it a coat of paint. Finally, I decided to see if I could do a paint pour – on some tissue paper – to create a liner! It was messy, but it worked! And I was able to use that paint pour on the inside, sides. For the inside top, I just mixed up a little more to pour and dumped it right in.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-06 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-15

I wanted to get as many pieces ready for assembly as possible before sitting down to start the process, so I used some leather-effect polymer clay to create the “leather” underside of the brim and I used some metallic and glitter polymer clay in a couple of embossing folders to create the sheets of “metal” to fill between the leather-clay and to use along the outer edge of the brim.

The final set of pre-assembly pieces I made were the patterned paper panels and the pink band for the hat. For the pink band, I just cut the half-sheet from the paper pack in half and connected the ends to make one long strip.

For the top, side, and brim patterned paper panels, I partly eyeballed, partly measured approximately where the cut would be – especially for the pieces that have the mannequins, hot air balloon, etc. – and cut them all out. Much like the base pieces, there are not a lot of ways for the pieces to fit all together, but I will add a reference photo here for the panel locations on the base.

topHat-outside-alighned

As I sat staring at all my pieces, trying to decide how to use those chipboard and cut-apart pipes, I thought of windows; little steampunk windows to see the “inner workings” of the hat. I grabbed up some circle dies, picked a few places around the brim and on top of the hat, and cut the circles out of the patterned paper.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-13

I used a couple of stencils with a couple TCW Stencil butters to add some dimension and texture to the circles I cut out, coated the chipboard pipes in copper embossing powders, and added some Beads In A Bottle to create a little dimension and bolts/rivets to the chipboard. Then I started the assembly process while I waited for my resin to set up in my gilding flake coated, polymer clay window frames.

After all my pipes were in place I gave them a coating of clear gesso so I’d be able to add my paints to create the illusion of depth with shadows.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-02 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-11 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-10

Now it was finally time to add my patterned paper panels! I also added the pink band, and I created the inside band using the half-sheet of paper from the pack that looks like leather. I finished adding all my clay pieces to the underside of the rim and added them to the outer edge of the brim.

So now I had all of the pieces of the hat together – except the windows – and started my work on filling any gaps and smoothing it all out. I used a mix of gold Stencil Butter, gold Beads In A Bottle, and 3D Matte Gel to smooth along the edge of the brim with all the layers, and to fill in any spaces that I thought needed it. To prepare for the addition of the windows, I added a ring of Beads In A Bottle around the circles on the hat brim and top.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-05

While my hat sat off to let that gold mix dry, I got to work on putting the focal point of the hat together. I grabbed up some mould pieces and used 3D Matte Gel to hold them in place, and after adding my gesso, I started adding the first layers of paint. While the gears and heart were setting up, I put my pipe pieces together and added the first layers of paint to them. I added the heart and gears to the pipes using more 3D Matte Gel, and set it off to let it set up while I added my lace bits and gilding flakes to my hat base. Before I got too much further along, I added a coat of Workable Fixatif so when the time came to add my final paints there would be a layer of protection on the patterned paper that would keep the wet from just soaking right in.

I laid my hat on its side, using whatever I had on hand to hold it in place and prop it up so the side I wanted to add the heart and pipes to was, at least mostly, level. I made sure to do this close to bedtime, so the 3D Matte Gel I used to hold the resin pieces in place had time to set up – without me becoming impatient and checking it too soon! I also started adding some art stones to the areas I could get at with the hat on its side.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-12 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-16

Now it was finally time to add on the windows in preparation for the final layers of paint, art stones, and waxes.

I added more paint to my resin pieces, being careful when I was near my windows so they wouldn’t get splatter on them, and then just started working my way down from the top of the hat with more art stones and my paints. I let all the paint dry before flipping my hat over and adding some paint to the underside of the brim.

SeptMoodboard-TopHat-03 SeptMoodboard-TopHat-09

The final touches on this Shabby-Steampunk Top Hat were the addition of a few Finnabair waxes to the top, sides, art stones, lace, and the top and underside of the brim.

Art Journal-Hero & Paint-June MTW Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I have an Art Journal spread I created for the June More Than Words Challenge “Hero & Paint.”

WM-20210622_201758

I wasn’t sure if I’d come up with something this month for the MTW Challenge, I wasn’t feeling very layout-ish, and I wasn’t able to really narrow down a personal hero. One day I just pulled out my DWM Journal and grabbed a few brighter paints. Then I sat there staring! I think things finally came together when I got a “picture” in my mind of some stenciling. I didn’t have anything like what I was picturing, so I cut one out of some heavy cardstock.


Video:


June 2021 Main


I suppose, if you wanted to really get down to the nitty-gritty, I think I had problems thinking of a hero because I tend to lean to a “I’ll do it myself” attitude. I’m not saying I won’t let people do things for me, I just find doing it myself faster! LOL!


Some close-ups of the spread:

WM-20210622_201853

The silver on the background is from sheets of Prima Run-On Foils. I used my homemade stencil with some Finnabair “Gold Dust” Jewel Effect Paste, and then freehanded some paint highlights!

WM-20210622_201840 WM-20210622_201903 WM-20210622_201944

I used some DWM “Eggplant” & “Lemon” that I had from the October 2020 Tres Jolie Kit Club Mixed Media Kit, and some Vicki Boutin “Juicy Pear.”

WM-20210622_201949

All of the papers have been in my “scraps” pile for ages, and none of them had the border with the manufacturer on them anymore, so I couldn’t even begin to guess where they came from now!

WM-20210622_201910 WM-20210622_201935

I just tore a bit of corrugated cardboard from a box, coated it in some DWM Gesso I’ve had since the April 2019 Tres Jolie Mixed Media Kit (I had an open container way back then already, and with black gesso, I’ve learned a little bit goes a long way!); I then layered my stamped papers, punched circles, and label on top of the cardboard.

WM-20210622_202023

I hope you enjoyed this project. I love getting my Art Journal out because I gives me a chance to do a project without always having to plan ahead or prepare too much! With just a little guideline, “Hero & Paint” I was able to do a project and relax!

Your eyes are a reflection of your spirit-MTW May 2021 Mini

Hey, all! Today I have the tag I made for the More Than Words May 2021 Mini Challenge, “Eyes.” As you can see in the photos, lighting can change how this project looks!

The word “eyes” has to appear on the project, so I went looking for quotes that could inspire me. It just so happened that I had my (new) Finnabair Moulds sitting out at the same time. By my bead drawer. And a plan started to formulate!

Process video:


May Mini EYES


You will see how lighting and flash vs no-flash change the appearance of the mediums, especially with the shine from the paints!

20210525_083707-wm

I started with a Julie Nutting tag. Not for the pattern, but because I like the size and the weight of it.

20210525_083601-wm

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil, some random filigree, and Ingvild Bolme “Nail Heads” to build my background.

20210525_083418-wm

I added some paper straws, a metal butterfly, and a key under my skull.

20210525_083616-wm

Another “Nail Head” in one eye and a rose in the other.

I had so much fun with this project! I love getting out my paints and pastes and getting messy! I hope you enjoyed this tag as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Spring Butterfly Canvas-March 2021 MMP Mood Board Challenge

Hey, all! Look at me, I’m back! After having to take a little bit of a hiatus, I have managed to put a project together! It felt good to get paint stuck to me again. And, if we’re being honest, I really missed the smell of my Finnabair waxes!

For my first project to bring me back into the fray, I have a Spring Butterfly Canvas for the March 2021 Mixed Media Place Challenge. The canvas and doily are from a couple of years ago that was originally supposed to be something Christmas-y, but it failed. After the failure, I decided to coat the whole thing in Kilz spray primer and set the canvas aside until inspiration struck. That inspiration finally struck, over two years later! LOL!


photostudio_1617569837320-WM


I was worried I would have somehow forgotten everything I’ve learned over the years during my hiatus, but I’m happy to report I was able to access the creative storage in my brain and get this put together. Check out my process in the video below:

Check out this beautiful mood board for the challenge! It really got me in the mood for spring!

Now, how about some close-ups!

photostudio_1617569948905-WM

Here you can see I added some shine to the green lily using some of my Unicorn’s Hair Sparks paint. I didn’t add the Sparks to all of the flowers, I kept it to the green, white, & off-white flowers.

photostudio_1617569992720-WM

Here you can see how those gold microbeads really set off the wing! I love how my butterfly came out! So many layers of paint and wax! I was worried I wasn’t going to get it “just right,” until I came across my beads!

photostudio_1617570045670-WM

Here is the whole butterfly! You can see how the color changes depending on the light. Even though this photo was taken straight on, with the light coming from the right, the left wing shows up as more purple, and the shine really stands out!

photostudio_1617569902387-WM

Look at those beautiful glass beads! I didn’t need a lot and I love how they give an almost magical look to the piece!

Thank you for joining me here in my little corner! Hopefully, it won’t be too long before I have another project up for you!
