Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. Today I am sharing a project which features one of the latest collections by Kaisercraft this month which is called Anthology. This collection features vintage inspired botanical images, gorgeous ephemera and stunning vintage papers. Today I am sharing a shadow box that I have created using some of the papers, the collectables and one of the specialty papers in the collection.
To create the actual shadow box, I selected an 8″ x 8″ canvas and used the reverse side of it. I selected the specialty paper called SHADOW BOX and measured then cut a section that I needed. Using a selection of the Kaisercolour paints, I painted the outside edges of the canvas to match the papers. Once dry, I glued them into place using soft matte gel.
To adhere the shadow box frame to the canvas, I measured a piece of paper from the collection and adhered this to the canvas and then marked onto the paper where the box lines would be. I attached double sided adhesive to some fun foam then measured and cut it into strips. I adhered these strips onto my lines and gradually built up my frames until they were all even with the top of the canvas before adhering the specialty paper layer.
To decorate inside each of the sections, I used some printed tape. I also used foam dots to add dimension to the collectable pieces.
I added some vintage trinkets from my stash to compliment the collection.
Inking the edges of the papers and the collectables adds to the vintage feel as well as enabling each component to stand out.
The metal corners add a nice finishing touch to the shadow box. These have been discontinued, but you might be able to
Have you seen Kaisercraft’s new Art Foam Sheets? They come in 22 beautiful colours and are very delicate and soft. At 0.8mm thick the Art Foam Sheets are easy to manipulate and perfect for flower making. Today the Design Team have used the Kaisercraft Art Foam Sheets with a variety of new Kaisercraft dies that have just been released and are designed to be used especially with the Kaisercraft Art Foam. The flowers were then incorporated into some gorgeous projects…

Art Foam Storage Tin by Jowilna Nolte
I am not one for making too many of my own flowers, but can I just mention how utterly addictive this product and process has been.
I am totally in love with the ease and beauty of it all – and may end up making way too many flowers for future projects.
I created some pretty flowers to spruce up a storage tin in a few easy steps.
