Abu Dhabi with Journey

Hi everyone,

Denise here with you today with my first layout using the new Journey Kaisercraft collection

I used quite a few of the little Wood Flourishes in this collection. These are really versatile little embellishments. I chose to paint mine so firstly I painted them with some White Gesso.

Once this had dried I painted them with some Gold Paint

To start the layout I took a sheet of Chestnut Weave Kaisercard.

Next I used a sheet of Vagabond paper which I cut down to 11.5 inches square

Then I stencilled onto this with some Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink through the Direction 6×6 designer stencil.

I cut some varying sized rectangles from the mosaic side of the Traveller paper  then placed them in an L shape on the right hand side of the layout.

I also used some papers from the  Paper Pad to mat my photo over these rectangles.

As some of the wood flourishes seemed to get a bit lost in the background, I backed a couple of them with some black card just to make them show up a bit more.

I added these on to the layout then embellished lots more with some of the die cuts from the Collectables Pack and to finish off I did some splats with some gold paint
