Favorite fairy tale, Scrapbook Kit by Annie




Hello everyone ! Coming today with another layout made with June's Scrapbook Kit filled with gorgeous products :





The Purple flowers inspired me to use a lot of Purple and Green !!  I decided to pull out from my stash some sprays I hadn't used in a very long time ! Since I almost always work with my watercolors, I kind of let go of some of my other mediums...

So here is my layout, with a beautiful photo of my daughter.   First things first, a coat of clear Gesso on the background, let it dry and than use the gorgeous stencil from the Cards, Tags and more kit (must still be available in the shop).  Then I took my Purple sprays and also a Green spray. As you can see, I put a lot !  

Next thing I did was use the beautiful cut outs, postcards and stamps from the kit and placed them in a cascade from the top left to the right bottom.  

I took the white Tres Jolie lace and teared it a little bit.  I added flowers on which I sprayed ink :) I just love doing that !  I added some of the words phrases and inspiration card from the previous Cards, Tags and more kit.


Here are some close-ups :








I hope you like this layout, let me know if you have any questions !!

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more kit



Hello everyone ! I am back today with another page from my journal, made with the beautiful June Kit : Cards, Tags and more...







Once again I took a inspiration card from the May Kit and went from there.  I chose the photos that for me represented family, friends, sisters etc.

I started with a coat of clear Gesso on both sides and let dry.  Then I took the gorgeous stencil included in the kit with the Nuvo paste wow !!! I just love the result !  After everything was dry I started to play with the Stamps from the kit, all over the pages with the Black Distress Ink.  I continued with some Fuchsia Watercolor here and there, sprayed some water, which diluted the Black ink a little, I think it looks great because it gave like a dark Purple color.

I used some of the sticky words from the May Kit as journaling, and with a watercolour pen, I draw lines around the words and the photos.  I did a wash with water  and a brush to create an antique look.







I hope you like what I did :)

"Treasure" June Scrapbook Kit for Tres Joli



Hello everyone !! I am here today sharing a layout made with June's Scrapbook Kit for Tres Jolie, here it is :  Lots of gorgeous products from 49andMarket, Scrapberries and Prima Marketing.




This paper is my favourite from the collection but I did not want to hide the beautiful flowers ont the background ! Isn't it the same problem for everyone ?

I think I did a pretty good job ;) 

First thing, (always) I put a coat of clear Gesso.  Sometimes, I end up not using that much medium on my layout but I never know in advance, so I don't take chances !  It only takes a few minutes to dry.

In the kit there are some beautiful laser cut sheets with some flowers and leaves, that is what I used here.  I used some watercolor that matched the red flowers on the paper and tried to reproduce some petals here and there, to blend the leaves and the flowers going down.

I did not put a lot of embellishments so I would not hide too much, and that is why I chose a small photo and cut it with a circle punch. A few splashes and there you have it :) 


Here are some close-ups :





I hope you like this layout, let me know if you have any questions !!

Journal Spread Tres Jolie Kit

Hello everyone !

Last week I showed you my Journal Cover, today I am showing my first spread.  This page was made by the Cards, Tags and more kit of course.  Check out the store there are probably some left if you want to start your own journal.

https://tresjoliekits.com/#



The 1st thing I did what choosing a card from the kit with the quote number 39 that says : 

"Feel inspired by all the colors of the Rainbow. What does your personal rainbow look like ?"

That is when I thought of kids, instantly.  I took my watercolors and started to put some on the left side and with water, I made the colors drop from one side to the other. Like this :




Once the paint was dry, I took different stamps from my stash and put them all over the spread.  I adhered the card I had chosen and added some words from the kit with cute small flowers.


I finished with some journaling about my inspiration :




I hope this will help you to be inspired and just start creating without overthinking it ! Don't be afraid to just start something and see where it takes you :)

Cards, Tags and more Kit

Hello Hello !!!

This month is really special and different.  I don't know if you saw Kim's video revealing this month's kit but I thought it was such a good idea to create a kit with a Journal that can be used on a long period.


If you want more details of this kit here is the link to the video :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89BN45WQo7k

Today I decided I would show you my Journal cover.  To be honest, I was scared at first because I had not touched Journaling for a very long time and I thought the inspiration would never come.  I took a few days to think about it and thought to myself : What inspires you ? What do you like ? What represents YOU ? I used my favorite colors of course :)

I went back to my old Art Journals and they really gave me ideas.  I remembered that I always started with a background like tissu paper, or old books or dictionaries.

I took some pages from the Planner Kit and adhered them with Matte Gel.  Once that was dry, I put some Acrylic Paint from my stash (Finnabair Art Alchemy Impasto MINT) using a spatula.  I used a stencil with Nuvo Mousse and the stamp from the Scrapbook Kit.

I used embellishments from previous kits and a lot of flowers from my stash.  I finished off with some words from the Art Daily Planner Sentiments.






Material used :


Prima - Art Daily 58Piece Planner Kit
Prima - Art Daily Planner - Sentiments

Metal Bookmarks

All Pink Layout for Tres Jolie

Hello!

presenting today another layout from May Scrapbook Kit at Tres Jolie.

Lots of beautiful products included :


I took this wooden paper from Lemon Craft as my background and put a coat of Clear gesso first.
I used a stencil from my stash with Modeling Paste and created a design starting at the top right coming down in the middle.  Once that was dry I used watercolours , Red, Pink and Orange on the paste. I also did a few splashes here and there. 

If you remember for my first layout this month, I had kept some peaces of chipboard : I used them for this layout .  I also used some of the paper clocks and butterflies I had previously cut out.  I added some cheese cloth, flowers and Nuvo dots.  To finish, I took some White Gesso mixed with a little bit of water and did some splashes.


Here are some close-ups :
