Today I would like to share with you a fun, multi-photo, double layout that I created using the SUNKISSED Collection by Kaisercraft. I went for a fairly simple layout with few layers this time, however I add a little bit of fun mixed media. This is the perfect layout practice mixed media with because most of the back ground is covered in photos and any mistakes with it! Or if you love the background, you can simply use less photos. I have tried to capture a weekend trip to Palma, Mallorca, with this layout.
To create this double layout I have used the instructions below:
Apply Distress Oxide- Lucky Clover, Distress Oxide- Mermaid Lagoon and Distress Ink- Peacock Feathers to an INKSSENTIALS CRAFT SHEET, spray with some water. Dip paper into the ink, repeat until you are happy with how it looks.
Take the two larger SNOW pieces and tape together behind. Repeat steps 3 and 4 on this larger section.
Take two sheets of MOJITO – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and trim off the bottom strips. From the centre of one, cut out a piece to use as a 11 x 14.1 cm photo frame for later. Tape MOJITO’s together create a double layout size. Using a rounded corner punch, punch the outside corners of the inked SNOW page and the double MOJITO. Adhere SNOW to MOJITO.
Cut leaves from LEMON LIME – SUNKISSED COLLECTION and foam tape the section of three leaves together to the left side of the layout and the large single leaf to the bottom right.
Prepare 4 photo mats with dimensions of 10.7 x 10.7 cm from the zig-zag and green spotted sheets from the PAPER PAD – SUNKISSED. Adhere 4 photos with dimensions of 9.8 x 9.8 cm. Adhere the 4 matted photos to the centre of the layout.
Take pre-prepared photo frame from Step 6, adhere to photo (10 x13 cm) and adhere to the right side on the layout on top of the large leaf.
Today I would like to share a layout that I created using the UNDER THE GUM LEAVES Collection by Kaisercraft. This collection really inspired to hunt down some “Old Aussie Christmas” photo’s from my childhood. This double layout contains two photos from the Christmas Party my family attended every year at the Great Aussie Resort. Santa would come and give all the children presents and sometimes the adults too. For this layout I have gone for an Australian flora (and fauna) wreath which the emu and Kangaroo are holding up, similar to the Australian Coat of Arms. As this was the first time I had the chance to play with Kaisercrafts newer style sticker books, this layout also contains many of the stickers from this.
To create this Layout I followed the following steps:
Take two photos (15.4 x 10.2 cm) and attach to the middle of the layout. Using the flower clusters in the STICKER BOOK – UNDER THE GUM LEAVES COLLECTION, stick them around the photos to create a wreath. Take the Cockatoo and Koala stickers and foam tape to the top and bottom of the wreath, respectively. Ink the edges of each sticker with an ink blending tool and DISTRESS INK PAD – AGED MAHOGANY.
