Beautiful with Bombay Sunset

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my last project using the lovely  Bombay Sunset Kaisercraft collection .

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 57 07This time I have used a Kaisercraft BTP  Wall Art Heart .beyond-the-page-large-heart-silhouette-wall-artI used the inside heart a while ago on another project so am using the frame and background base this time.

I painted around the inside of the heart shape with some white Kaisercolour paint

This time I used the minty green colourway papers showing how versatile this collection can be, although vibrant and bright it can be cool and restful too.

I started by taking  some of  the Music paper  and using the green side covered the back base.

Next I covered the front with the Rosewood paper, again using the green side.

My photo was matted on to some of the green side of Mumbai paper and placed in the middle of the background .

Before sticking the top frame to the base I went round the edges of the heart and the outside with some Tumbled Glass Distress ink

Once this was done it was time to embellish.

I die  cut some foliage from some of the papers from the 6.5 x 6.5  pad.

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 56 24Fussy cut some of the leaves and punched some flowers out. These were all layered up with foam tape.

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 56 21I also used some paper flowers, rhinestones and cheesecloth amongst the flowers which were sprayed with some pink Kaisermist.

I hope you like this project and have been inspired to go and have a play !

Altered Trading card frame using Bombay Sunset

Hi everyone

Elaine here today to bring you an altered Trading Card Frame using the beautiful Bombay Sunset collection. 

imageTo make this I first covered my Trading Card Frame with Dina Wakley Gesso to hide the MDF at the back and the sides. Next I took the Indian Summer Gold Foil Paper and and used the two strips at the bottom and top to cover the frame. It was wider than the frame but I made a conscious decision to leave the width intact and left it to overhang it to create a shadow box effect.  There was a fair amount of cutting to get all the parts to fit, and,  I confess there wasn’t enough for each side of the frame but I knew that I was going to be creating a large cluster in the bottom right hand corner so I didn’t worry about that.  I again took the gold foil paper and fussy cut a large mandala and a smaller one of fill in the gaps on the paper and diagonally cut the corners. Again, I knew these were going to be covered so I didn’t stress about lining them up etc. I used the remaining paper to cover the background of the frame too to give the option of placing an object rather than a photo inside.

image

imageNext I took several elements from the Bombay Sunset collectables pack and arranged these in large clusters at the top and bottom. I also took a piece of gold paper from the 6.5″ paper pad and punched two sizes of circles from it to add to the clusters. I also fussy cut several extra flowers from the paper pad to add amongst them too.

image

imageOnce I was happy with the arrangement I took the Kaisermist White spray and sprayed it all over the clusters. Now, for anyone that has never tried the white Kaisermist, I must give it a shout out. So often white mists are more miss than hit, but in this case the white is brilliant and it really shows up nicely.. which is a real bonus! If you’re looking for a really good white mist you can’t go wrong with the Kaisermist..its very satisfying! lol

imageI then used a little Kaisercolour white acrylic paint to splatter over the whole frame to give it a slightly more distressed look too.

Finally I tucked in some pieces of cheesecloth around the clusters and stuck them in with gel glue and I added some of my favourite bling.. the beautiful Sea Breeze Rhinestone Sparklets. If anyone hasn’t tried these I can heartily recommend them too!

imageI eventually settled on a photo of my Granddaughter to put in the frame, which will now go in her bedroom, and I then added some Metallic Gold hemp cord to hang it from. I think its perfect for a little girls room..don’t you?

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial- if you have a little girl to make it for, do give it a go..she will love it.. as did my GD.

Have fun!

Always Choose Happiness with Bombay Sunset

Hello everyone,

Denise here with another layout using the gorgeous Bombay Sunset Kaisercraft Collection.

main photoThe colours of this collection put me in mind of hot climates so I decided to use a large photo featuring my son and his girlfriend in the sand.

I used Licorice Kaisercard as my base then took Sari paper, cut down by half an inch on two sides.

I placed the photo just underneath the top border, without sticking first of all.

Next I took some of the white cheesecloth, and sprayed with Orange and Red Kaisermists to match the papers.

Photo 10-06-2017, 14 42 46I cut a strip then ruffled it underneath the photo.

Photo 12-06-2017, 20 06 59

I then took some of the colourful papers from the 6.5 x6.5 pad, ripped strips then layered them underneath the photo.

Photo 12-06-2017, 20 07 12I flicked some of the Kaisermists over the papers and the main paper.

Next I used some of the die cuts from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad  to place under the photo and over the cheesecloth as banners.

Photo 12-06-2017, 20 06 47I used some borders from the Sticker Sheet across the middle and bottom of the layout.

Photo 12-06-2017, 20 07 28I also used some Rhinestones for embellishments, together with some EpoxyStickers and Gold Metallic Hemp Cord.

I’ve enjoyed using this warm vibrant collection and hope you will pop back for some more inspiration from the team very soon.

Scrapbook Layout using the Bombay Sunset Collection

Hi again

Elaine here today to bring you a vibrant layout using the bright and cheerful Bombay Sunset collection. 

imageFirst I took a sheet of Kaisercard Splice Weave Cardstock and a 4″ strip of the Music Paper from the collection. I spliced the two together and trimmed the side of the yellow card to give me enough left to mat the photo. To do this I used some long neglected washi tape to secure the two spliced pieces of paper and card together.

I then created some layers using the reverse of the Rosewood Paper and each side of the Mumbai Paper. (Be sure to save the pretty floral element for one side of the Mumbai Paper for later!) Once these were stuck down I used some Turquoise Kaisermist spray and some Candy Kaisermist Spray over the background.

imageOnce dried I added a circle of pearls from my stash and used a strip from the Bombay Sunset sticker sheet over the join at the front of the paper and card above and below the layers of patterned papers. I matted the photo on the offset of yellow Splice card and used the fussy cut section of the remainder of the Mumbai paper from earlier for the base of my corner cluster.

imageTo create more interest I used a couple of mandalas from the collectables pack and layered these under the cluster with some cheesecloth and some Cherry Hemp Cord. For a final flourish I added some small Honey Kaiserblooms and a larger Fuchsia Bloom together with a Sea Breeze Rhinestone Sparklet and a couple of Daffodil Sparklets too. I used more collectables from the pack for the expression with the corner flourish and the title was made using alphas from my stash.

The saying beneath the photo was cut from a strip on one of the sheets from the collection pack.

I do hope this like this bright and happy collection as much as I do! Have fun with it!

Choose Happy with Bombay Sunset

Hi everyone,

Denise here with my first layout using the gorgeously vibrant Bombay Sunset Collection.

Photo 31-05-2017, 18 31 59This collection really is packed full of colour and lent itself to a summer flowery photo I have of my friend and me at a summer barbecue.

I started by using the pink side of Bollywood paper. Next I used some Coconut Weave Kaisercard which was cut down.

I used a Bubbly Mini Designer Stencil and sprayed through it onto the card with two mists, firstly Orange, then Pink.

 

Photo 31-05-2017, 15 04 45

 

Photo 31-05-2017, 18 31 44After I had done this I sprayed completely over the layout and the circles.

I used the same paper as the background from the 6.5 x6.5  Paper Pad as a background for my photo.

My photo was matted on to Coconut Kaisercard .

I used some of the die cuts from the Collectables Pack to tuck in and around the photo to embellish.. Photo 31-05-2017, 18 31 41Some were used for the title words too.

I also used some Sunshine Epoxy Stickers to dot around the layout and some Yellow  rhinestones.

I layered some die cut flowers from the Collectables pack in the corner by the photo, these were raised on foam tape.

Photo 31-05-2017, 18 31 59I  had fun making this layout and hope you’ve enjoyed it !

Bombay Sunset Scrapbook Layout

Hi again,

Elaine here bringing you a layout using the beautifully colourful Kaisercraft Bombay Sunset collection.

imageTo make this layout I first used the Rosewood paper from the collection as the background. I then took the dotty stencil from the 12 x 12 Designer Stencil Mini Mix and used Ranger texture paste to create a spotty background.

I then took a sheet of the Bollywood paper and added Gesso to lighten it and again used the dotty stencil to add extra dimension to the paper. I then added Wisteria Kaisermist and left to dry.

imageNext I fussy cut the mandala from the bottom left of the Bollywood paper and put to one side and I used three different sized circles and punched out several from the altered Bollywood paper.

I then took a sheet of Coconut white Kaisercard and punched more circles from the card. I then used the Wisteria Kaisermist, Candy Kaisercraft and Pink Kaisermist to spray the circles.

imageNext I arranged all the circles from both the Bollywood paper and the Coconut card over the stencilled Rosewood paper using foam pads to create different levels and I used cheesecloth in amongst the circles.

imageI mounted the card on a remaining piece of Bollywood paper and also a second layer using the reverse of the same paper.

I then took the fussy cut mandala that I had cut earlier and added that beneath the photo.

Next I used two loops of Cherry Hemp Cord and added these beneath some of the collectables from the Bombay Sunset collectables pack and layered these over the circles I had placed earlier.  I used two of the collectables for the title.

I then took flowers from my stash and some Kaisercraft Aubergine blooms and added these to the clusters.

imageAs a final flourish I added Candy Epoxy Stickers and Sunshine Epoxy Stickers for extra interest.

I do hope you would like to give my mixed media piece a try too? It is such a pretty collection!

Elaine
