Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2021 Moodboard-Scrapbooking & Mixed Media Kits Combo

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you my moodboard inspired project using both the June Mixed Media Kit and Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!


I love steampunk! It is in my top three list of themes I could play with all day long! Check out my video to see how I put this together.



Now a few close-ups:


On my metal pieces I used some clear gesso from my stash and added some color using the Starburst Squirts—Hockey Puck Black & Polite People Purple—from this month’s Mixed Media Kit. (Note: I forgot to mention the Polite People Purple in my video, Sorry!!)

On the wooden gear I adhered some of the metallic flakes and then aged them with more of the Starburst Squirts and clear gesso!

These black chipboard arrows are from this month’s Scrapbooking Kit, and I absolutely love them! I love them so much I ordered two more sets to keep on hand (Tres Jolie Chipboard).


First I used some foam squares to raise the car up a bit, then to add more depth I used the Maple Syrup Bronze Starburst Squirt to create a shadow effect behind the car.


I used a few of the transfers from the Mixed Media Kit, added some color with more of the Starburst Squirts, and layered them with the car. As a final touch, I grabbed up a few of the flowers and one of the butterflies from the Scrapbooking Kit and added them to my piece!


I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do using this month’s kits and the moodboard!

Fairy Moonlight – July 2020 Mixed Media Place Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you a little piece I did for the July 2020 Challenge over at the Mixed Media Place blog.


Looking at the moodboard for this month I was immediately drawn to the mushrooms. I absolutely adore mushrooms in art. In food, I can tolerate them (except those white “button” mushrooms, Ewww), but in art I absolutely love them! In addition to the mushrooms, all the colors kept making me think of sunsets and the dusk of early evening. Check out my process video, which can be found under the Mixed Media Place Moodboard!

Process Video:


I have quite a few mediums making up my background; a couple of Jacquard Paints topped with three different Distress Oxide Sprays. For my moon and stars, I used two Prima/Finnabair paints, one of which is “Unicorn’s Hair,” which was also used for my splatter!


I really loved the idea of just having a fairy silhouette looking at the night sky, so I grabbed up my Creative Embellishments chipboard, added some black gesso, but by the end, I decided to add a coat of “Charcoal Black” Matte Wax.


I used “Burnt Sienna” Liquid Acrylic Paint to give some shadowy depth behind the mushrooms.


To add a little extra to the moon and stars I lightly brushed on some “White Gold” Metallique Wax, and to give a little extra shine to the mushroom caps I added some “Heather Hills” wax on the front curves (if that makes sense!)


Thank you for joining me here at my little corner! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you’ll visit me again soon!
