Believe in your Dreams with Fairy Land

Hi everyone,
Today I would like to share a layout that I have created with the very, very last pieces that I had left over from the Fairy Land Collection by ScrapBoys. Do you end up with lots of left over pieces from a collection? But never have a whole sheet of the collection left to add them to? Well here is a layout I have created in that exact situation! I collected all the pieces and simply added them to a piece of card stock that I had prepared with a little bit of texture paste.

To create this layout I have started with a sheet of KAISERCARD CINNAMON WEAVE CARDSTOCK and unevenly painted the left hand side with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BROWN 50ML.

Then I have tinted some TEXTURE PASTE with KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BROWN 50ML and applied it through a brick stencil (COBBLESTONE 12X12 DESIGNER STENCIL would look even better!) to the left hand side of the page. I also used Bark ink to add more colour to the bricks.

Next I applied all my fussy cut and other left over pieces from FAIRY LAND – PAPER 01, FAIRY LAND – PAPER 02, FAIRY LAND – PAPER 05, FAIRY LAND – PAPER 06 and FAIRY LAND – PAPER 07 to the layout. Finally, I embellished with some Ribbon, CHEESECLOTH GAUZE, Stamped sentiment from CLEAR STAMPS – ENCHANTED COLLECTION, the laser cut word “believe” and RHINESTONES – LIPPY RED.

I hope I have inspired you to have a play with this gorgeous collection.
Stay safe and keep crafting!

Capture Life with Keepsake

Hello everyone,

Denise here with a layout using the new Kaisercraft Keepsake Collection.

037I used one of the matching stencils from the collection on the background with some texture paste across the middle of the card and at the top and bottom on opposite sides.

023I laid some dies from the Collectables Pack  around as embellishments and flicked some varying colours of Kaisermist over the background.

My photos were matted on to a sheet from the 6.5 x6.5 paper pad.

038I placed a border sticker from the sticker sheet under the photos.

040Once I’d added the embellishments and cheese cloth and was happy with everything, I sprayed the whole thing with some Kaisermist.

026I had fun making this layout using some mixed media products for a change to add texture . There’s lots more inspiration to come from the team !

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!

Elaine
