Tres Jolie Kit Club-December Mixed Media Kit-Bottle Brush Display

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Due to life, this will be my final project for the Tres Jolie Kit Club, but I’m sure you’ll find the incoming design team to be very inspirational. As my final project, I used the rest of the ornaments I made for the first project to make a bottle brush tree display.

Since I already had the ornaments made up, this project went together rather quickly and easily! Check out my video to see the process:

I used the last bit of clay I had to cover an up-cycled jar, attached the ornaments, gessoed and painted, added some of the PearlEX powders, and finished them off with some of the glitter. Easy peasy!

Here are some close-ups so you can get a good look at the beautiful details from the mould, and how those paints and powders look together!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-December 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Ornaments

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you some ornament ideas to make using items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club and some resin from my stash.

I did a few different color combinations for you, to give a good sampling of what can be done to fit your personal style and décor. Check out my video to see the process!

Now, how about a few close-ups?

I did a few different base colors. Some have black gesso under the red paint, some have white gesso under the silver or red paint, and some have the PearlEx powders mixed into the clear epoxy I used.

After I had all my ornaments painted how I wanted, I added some of the PearlEx powders to them all.

After I used some acrylic spray to keep my powders in place, and I gave all my ornaments a coating of the glitter from the kit. I think these will beautifully reflect blinking Christmas lights!

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!)
