Explore the Unseen

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing my “Explore the Unseen” layout with you. I love the Journey Collection for its diverse colours. Here I use the pinks and reds with touches of gold in this collection, they go perfectly with the photos I have used. I fell in love with the quote “Explore the Unseen” because it goes perfectly with my new lens ball and my journey in learning how to use it to show the world differently in my photography!

To begin with, I took a piece of KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK and cut it to 30.5 cm x 30.5 cm. Using the DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY and a script stamp, I stamped the top left and bottom right corners of the KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK .

Next, I cut the gold pattern from Nomad paper before cutting the remaining part down to 24.5 cm by 29 cm. To add some gold highlights, I sprayed KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – GOLD SHIMMER 50ML through a stencil on to Nomad paper.

To get the main base of the layout, I also cut a 5.5 cm x 29 cm strip from Voyager Paper and the bottom strip from Vagabond paper. Then I attached all the pieces across the cardstock as shown in the picture (below).

For the photos (7 cm x 7 cm) I prepared frames from KAISERCARD SNOW WEAVE CARDSTOCK measuring 7.7 cm x 7.7 cm. I used the DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY and a script stamp again to give some colour to my photo frames. I attached the photos to the centre of the frames and attached these to the centre of the layout.

Lastly, I embellished the layout with pink flowers that I cut from Voyager paper, the vases from Meanderer, The Journey Collectables and RHINESTONES – WINE.

Hello everyone, Denise here with my second layout using the Antiquities collection.

IMG_9819-R-2

I’ve used the collection for a male themed photo this time, and concentrated on the blue hues and mainly used the Sticker Book and Paper Pad.

Firstly I stencilled through the Distressed Dots designer stencil with texture paste on to the Damask patterned side of the Valuable paper.

I took some Gold and Turqouise Kaisermisits and using the packaging technique, smooshed some colour over the page.

Once this had dried, I cut down two opposite sides by half an inch, then adhered this to a sheet of the blue side of One Of a Kind paper which I had gutted so I could make the most use of the paper!IMG_9794IMG_9795

I matted my photo on to two papers from the Paper Pad and placed at the bottom right of the layout.

Next I used the Sea Urchin decorative die to cut some circles from papers in the paper pad, these were tucked under my photo and placed at the top left of the layout.IMG_9792IMG_9800I also used some of the flowers and words from the Sticker Book and  die cuts from the Collectables  to embellish and use as a title.IMG_9801Thank you for visiting and happy crafting !
