Celebrate with Party Time!

Today I’m bringing you a mixed media scrapbook layout using the pretty Party Time  Kaisercraft collection .

Celebrate

Using the Double Scoop paper from the Party Time collection, I  created a mixed media background by dry brushing Dina Wakely gesso and adding Ranger’s modelling paste similar to the Tim Holtz layering stencil. I then added Kaisermists Antique gold, White and Winter Grey with some additional Tattered Angel shimmer mist and edged the whole page with a Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap inkpad. I then used the Festive Quarters stencil with another Tim Holtz ink pad, Peeled Paint to create the pattern on the right.

Using the same ink pads I used the Kaisercraft ‘Crackle’ and ‘Flutter’ stamps and randomly stamped them over the misting and the strips of paper from the Party Time 6″ paper pad. I also used the Party Time embossing folder on some Kaisercard smooth White card stock and punched some circles and some strips too.

I matted the photo (of my Daughter in Law as a bridesmaid – 2nd left) on more of the white Kaisercard and embellished it with KC paper blooms, more flowers and KC wooden flourish bows that I inked with the KC Red Gum ink pad.

Using the Party Time sticker sheet I added the hearts, chevrons and zig zags and I used a few of the elements from the collectables pack including the ‘Smile’ title together with the ‘Celebrate’ sub-title that I cut from the Hooray sheet from the collection. I also punched some of the circle words from the Confetti 12″ sheet.

Cropped imageTo highlight the modelling paste I used the Kaisercraft Gel Pens to edge the raised parts and then to finish it all off. (I can’t tell you how much I love these pens..you should pop some on your Christmas wish list now!) Finally I added some coordinating buttons, pearls and Kaisercraft Sunshine epoxy stickers.

When I first looked at this collection I thought that it leant itself to birthday celebrations yet both of the layouts I have created with the collection have not been birthday related..it just goes to show how versatile it is!

Enjoy!
