Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2022 Mood board-Scrapbooking & Mixed Media Kits

Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the Corner Scraps blog!

This week I have a mixed media canvas I made using both the March Mixed Media and Scrapbooking Kits from Tres Jolie Kit Club. The coordination between the micas and the papers was phenomenal! How could I resist using them together?!

I grabbed up a 9” x 12” canvas panel from my stash and started cutting and gluing and embossing! Check out my video to see it all come together.



Don’t be afraid to use your scissors! Chipboard, flowers, paper…nothing is immune from being cut, altered, and put back together! This project wasn’t too difficult, most of the time spent on it was spent drying or waiting for it to dry.

We have a new mood board challenge for the month. The rules are as follows:

  • You can create any type of project for the challenge.
  • You MUST say what you were inspired by.
  • You MUST include the twist in your design: OLD WORLD ELEGANCE.
  • We would love to see you USE AT LEAST ONE of Tres Jolie’s products on your projects but it isn’t required to play along.
  • It MUST be a new project.

Isn’t the mood board this month just beautiful?


Place your entries in the March 2022 challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Café Facebook page. This challenge ends on March 31st 2022 at 11:59 pm CST. All entries must be in this folder to be eligible for the prize (to have everyone eligible to win, we are limited the same winner to once every 3 months).

Now, some close-ups of the different parts of my canvas:

Here are some images of the mix of embossing powders I made-this month’s Ultrafine Gold, April 2021’s Patina Bronzed Copper, and my Ranger Triple Thick from my stash-put on in two layers, then “cooked” many, many times to (purposely) create some roughness and knock down some shine.

In addition to embossing my chipboard, I added embossing to most of the paper pieces, including the background paper, to give some extra texture and interest to the canvas.


I used the lightest rose mica powder, mixed with the Liquid Color Fluid Medium and watered down, on my background paper. I also used the darkest rose mica, the (I think) next to lightest rose, and both green micas as paints to really make the background flowers and leaves pop as seen in the video.

This main cluster is the biggest reason I am going to wait a week to give my canvas the coat of Triple Thick Clear Glaze. There are so many layers and “globs” of gel mediums and lots of water, and more gel medium! I don’t want moisture getting stuck behind the glaze! I have so many layers of paper and liquid matte medium I don’t know if the moisture would make it out through the back! Better safe than soggy and foggy!!

I didn’t set out to use these beads, I was just digging through my stash when I cam across the piece of costume jewelry and the bags of pearl beads. I don’t even know where everything came from, but I thought it was fortunate that I had those dusty rose colored beads to match the papers and micas! (I forgot to mention it in the video, but I used E6000 on the necklace.)

The Burnt Sienna Liquid Acrylic from last month’s Mixed Media Kit is the perfect color to add some shadowy and vintage effects. Don’t forget, if you decide to use a heat gun to “play” with your pink Prima flowers, they start curling up quickly!


Thank you for joining me here in my corner. I hope you enjoyed this mixed media canvas project gave you some ideas of what you can do with this month’s Mixed Media and Scrapbooking Kits and inspiration for this month’s mood board!

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.”


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.


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:


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!

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.”


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!

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.


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!
