Jowilna Nolte Layouts Mixed Media Templates Whisper

Double up on Mixed Media Layout

January 17, 2019

I love dabbling in mixed media elements on my layouts. You may think of going overboard but for me, the wisdom lies in knowing when to stop, when you can take something away instead of adding that one thing, then you know you have created something special that focuses on the photo and the story

This range is perfect for those special memories where you may only have a single photo that you can use enlarged to tell your story.

Adhere two sheets of smooth white cardstock together using double sided tape.
Measure about 5cm (2”) from the bottom edge and add stenciling using modelling paste. Leave the paste to dry.

Use your Kaiser mists and add colour to the stenciled images. I combined brown and black together.

Leave the ink to dry. Adhere strips cut from Buff (reverse) patterned paper down the center of your layout on both sides. I used 3 strips of paper on each side.
Cut out elements from patterned papers to use as a backdrop to your photos. I cut pieces from Bisque, Organic and Raw. Arrange the elements to the left and right side of your 7×5” (18x13cm) photo.

Die-cut some leaves and wood chip from white cardstock.

Use your Kaisermists to add colour to the die-cut pieces. First spray the die-cuts with brown mist and then lightly with black mist. Mist with water to make the ink colours mix together and create a beautiful effect.

Adhere the die-cuts to your layout using gel medium or craft glue. Cut some of the wood chips in half and use both halves on your layout.

Add gel medium to the left and right side of your photo and sprinkle with craft sand. Leave to dry and then shake off the excess.

Cut out butterflies from Buff (reverse) sheet and adhere to your layout as per the sample image.

Use stickers and other embellishments to finish off your layout as desired.

A beautiful mixed media layout using the amazing range enhanced by the stunning die-cuts and Kaisermists now available. Remember to have fun and make this your own – use these steps as inspiration and guideline to creating your own masterpiece

Blessed Do not use this category Jowilna Nolte Kaiser Mists

In All Things Give Thanks

Bible Journalling

What is bible journalling – it’s a creative way to visually highlight your favourite scriptures – and makes it easy to memorize the text.
Bible journalling for me is a personal journey where you can visually and creatively spend time with God in His word doing what we love and that He instilled in us.
For me it’s not something that I want to pressure me into being creative but rather a natural flow of worship and creativity – and where they meet in Him, for Him but also for me.
For more on this head HERE

Use a small paint brush and your Kaisermists to add colour to your black and white flowers on the Blissful patterned paper (reverse).

Layer different colors together to create interest. Mist a little bit of the colour onto a palette and water it down a bit if need be. Paint the flowers in matching colors to that of the Blessed paper range.

Use your precision scissors to cut out the colored flowers.

Cut words pertaining to your Bible verse out of the sheets from the Paper Pad.

Cut a matching quote block from the sheet in the Paper pad. Ink the edges if you want to.

Adhere the elements to your Bible page using craft glue. Adhere the block first, then add the colored flowers overlapping onto the block.

Cut out some additional flowers from the patterned paper sheets in the Paper Pad.

Add colour to your selected Bible verse highlighting the text with some Kaisermists. I dipped the paint brush into my bottle and lightly painted over the verses using 3 different colors. Leave the ink to dry and then add ink splatters in all the colors and leave to dry.

  • Add additional elements to finish off your page as desired. This range is so beautiful and the perfect backdrop to this special time of year being blessed and grateful for so many blessings.

Everlasting Jowilna Nolte Layouts step by step

Everlasting Double Page Layout by Jowilna Nolte

December 6, 2018

Today on the blog I am sharing a double page layout using the gorgeous Everlasting Collection.
I love the how versatile this range is – so much so that I even used patterned papers as my background -something I normally find too busy, but with this range they were simply perfect.

Follow instructions below to recreate all download instructions by clicking on the above image.

Step 1 –  Adhere the 2 x ONE and ONLY Patterned papers together with a piece of double-sided tape to form your background.
Step 2 – Cut out cards and elements to use on your layout from the Love You patterned paper sheet.

Step 3 – Cut out 5 x flowers from the BLOOM sheet. You need at least 1 large flower cluster and 3 smaller flowers as well as 2 x leaves. Ink the edges of the cut-out elements.

Step 4 – Add brown splats onto the background papers and leave to dry while prepping the rest of your elements.

Step 5 – Arrange the photo matts and cut out cards onto your background.
Position the elements in the plain brown strip running across the middle of your layout.

Stagger the photos and elements to create interest.
Tuck the cut-out flowers behind the photo matts for added interest.
Layer some scrunched up pink thread in between the flowers for dimension and texture.

Step 6 – Punch a decorative strip out of the BLOOM (reverse) using a border punch.

Step 7 – Use your craft scissors and cut the punched strip in half to form 2 thinner strips to use.

Step 8 – Adhere the barcode strips, punched border strips and other elements to your layout as per the image.
Use the cut-out washi tape strips from the LOVE YOU sheet and adhere them to the cards and dress up with embellishments.

Step  9 – Add rhinestones, wooden flourishes and sewing details to finish off your layout as desired.

Adding some sewing, and thread in between the layered flowers add some texture and also repeats the beautiful shades of pinks from the paper.

Until next time I hope you are inspired by this Double page layout to create your own using this stunning and versatile range.

Hi everyone, Jowilna here today sharing a travel inspired framed art piece, and the Let’s Go Collection was perfect for it.

Step 4 – Position your template onto the map and apply texture paste. Repeat a second time and leave the paste to dry.

Step 5 – Once the texture paste is dry mist the textured areas using Denim Kaiser mist and heat set using your heat gun.

Anthology Jowilna Nolte Kaiser Mists Mixed Media step by step

Butterfly Sampler Box with Mixed Media Effects by Jowilna Nolte

June 26, 2018

Hello everyone, Jowilna on the blog today with another Technique Tuesday showing you how I created this fun anthology butterfly sampler box.
This range is perfect for creating memory boxes, but I wanted to make something very specific – the kind of thing you will find in the office of a professor.

step 1 – Trim patterned paper to fit inside the wooden tray. I added a piece to the bottom to fit into the length.
Add stenciling detail to the bottom edge using texture paste and leave to dry. Add sewing around the edge.

step 2 – Cut a piece of polystyrene to fit into the bottom of the wooden tray and secure using double sided tape.

Step 3 – Use Kaisercraft mists in olive and coffee and mist the entire piece of paper.
Mix the two colours to create a leather look effect on the paper. Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.

Step 4 – Add double sided tape to the back of the paper piece and then adhere it to the polystyrene inside the tray.

Step 5 – Cut out butterflies from patterned paper as well as foliage. Ink the edges to hide any cutting lines.

Step 6 – Adhere sticker sentiment to filmstrip sticker and trim to size. Use your scissors to distress the edges.

Step 7 – Adhere the butterflies as well as the foliage and sentiment. Layer two butterflies on top of each other using foam tape.

Step 8 – Use decorative pins to add some interest to the butterflies. Cut them shorter and then pin them through the butterflies.
Print fig. sentiments and adhere below each butterfly.

I love how the mists just add so much shimmer and warmth to the patterned paper and project.
So easy to create a butterfly sampler box perfect for the aspiring lepidopterist {a person who studies or collects moths and butterflies}

Until next time – why not try and make your own sampler box using this easy to re-create leather look using texture and inks. Then add some of your favourite images and sentiments
to create a fun home decor project for your office or studio.
Live Creatively – Love Jowilna
