Today I am sharing a layout that I have created using Kaisercraft’s CRAFTERNOON Collection. I was excited to use this collection! I think it is very versatile and it just perfect to capture and record those creative memories, especially for those photos that are a little more difficult to use with “just any collection”. The photo I have used in this layout is the perfect example, it shows a gorgeous creative moment between an cheeky uncle and his sweet niece. I was able to easily use a more mixed media style for this photo which also complements the busy patterned background paper. The CRAFTERNOON Collection incorporates a great mix of colours, again making it very versatile, and for this layout I have chosen to focus mainly on a peachy orange colour and black to perfectly contrast it.
To create this layout I have followed the instructions below:
- Cut DECOUPAGE – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION to 27 x 27 cm. Randomly stamp CLEAR TEXTURE STAMP – GRID in KAISERINK PAD – LICORICE to the middle of the background. Using KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – BLACK 75ML and a wide paint brush randomly paint the middle of the background leaving some of the stamping visible. Distress the edges of the paper using a PAPER DISTRESSER.
- Cut KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK to 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Stitch a frame in peach coloured thread at ~1.5 cm in from the edge. Colour some TEXTURE PASTE with KAISERCOLOUR PAINT – ORANGE 75ML and transfer through a “Paint Splatter” Stencil (or any of your choice) onto the middle of your layout. Use MOUNTING FOAM TAPE to attach the main background of your layout onto the Ink Cardstock.
- Take a 10 x 14 cm photo and frame with 11.5 x 15.5 cm piece of KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK. Distress the edges of the paper using a PAPER DISTRESSER. Stitch the frame in peach coloured thread on the edge of the photo. Foam tape photo to the centre of the layout. Embellish the top-right and bottom-left corners of the photo with peach/orange coloured doilies from PAPER PAD – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION and CROCHET – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION. Embellish further with COLLECTABLES – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION, CURIOS – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION and peach coloured twine. Take the bottom strip from EMBROIDERY – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION, trim to 27 cm and distress the edges of the paper using a PAPER DISTRESSER. Attach this strip to a strip of KAISERCARD INK WEAVE CARDSTOCK with dimensions of 1.3 x 27 cm, that has been distressed. Foam tape these combined strips to a peach colour ruler from MEASURED – CRAFTERNOON COLLECTION which has been trimmed to 27 cm and distressed. Attach this combined strip ~0.5 cm from the bottom of the coloured background.
- Embellish the layout with RHINESTONES – BLACK and add some light splattering of KAISERMIST SPRAY INK – BLACK 50ML to the layout.
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and full instructions to recreate this layout.
