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

Golden Grove, Happy Days and a Farewell

July 18, 2017

Hi everyone, it is sadly my final post as a member of the amazing team here at Kaisercraft. I have had the most amazing experience over the past two years and it wasn’t easy to make the choice to not reapply to be on the team. However with two girls growing up rapidly I need to spend a little less time in the craft room unfortunately. I know I will miss playing with the amazing collections each month however I have seen what is coming up over the next few months and combined with the fabulous new Design Team – you are all in for a wonderful creative time!

For my final post I was so happy to play with the gorgeously bright and beautiful Golden Grove Collection. I adore all of the yellow and gold hues that are teamed with earthy browns and greens. This inspired me to make a happy layout aptly titled ‘Happy Days’!!

‘Happy Days’

Kaisercraft products used: P2352 ‘Gold Dahlia’ | P2353 Greenery’ | P2354 ‘Collated’ | P2357 ‘Soft Moss’ | SS343 Golden Grove Sticker Sheet | CT886 Golden Grove Collectables | CD102 Licorice Weave Cardstock | FL605 Harvest Flourish Pack | KM111 White Kaiser Mist | KM113 Coffee Kaiser Mist | SB700 Silver Rhinestones | ST929 Inspirational Clear Sticker Sheet | T303 Foam Tape

Other: Paperclip

With the gorgeous floral images in this collection a little bit of fussy cutting was a must! I wanted to work with layers and have a multi photo layout as well. To start the layout, I took Soft Moss as my background paper and trimmed approximately 1cm off of each side. I attached this to the centre of the Collated paper. I then randomly flicked White Mist over the page and set it aside to dry:

Take 3 photos and trim them down so they fit comfortable across your page (my photos measured approximately 8.5 x 12cm). Matt your photos using black cardstock. Attach your photos across the middle of your page using foam tape – I placed mine on slight angles.

Using the Gold Dahlia paper, fussy cut an assortment of the floral images. Use Foam Tape to attach these images to the top right hand side of your photos and  to the bottom left hand side.  Take one of the clocks and the white floral image from the Collectables Pack and attach the clock using Foam Tape at the top of the photos and the white flower at the bottom of the photos:

From the Sticker Sheet, remove the lace border, trim it to fit your background paper and then attach it to the top of your page using Foam Tape. Trim the ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ strip from the Greenery paper and attach it using Foam Tape to the bottom of your background paper:

Take some of the leaf sprays and leaves from the Harvest Flourish pack and slip them amongst your fussy cut floral images. From the Collectables Pack take two yellow butterflies, two yellow and brown butterflies, a large leaf and the ‘Happy Days’circle and add them to your floral clusters. Take a quote from the Clear Stickers and add it below your photos. Randomly add a few Silver Rhinestones to add dimension and flow to your page. Finally carefully flick some Coffee Kaiser Mist on your page. Add a paper clip to the far right hand photo and you are finished!

Thank you to Kaisercraft and all of you for the past two fabulous years. I can’t wait to see what the incredibly talented new team have in store for us all!

Happy crafting

Beautiful – Layout and Video Tutorial by Rikki Graziani

June 19, 2017

Good Morning how are you all? Rikki here today with my monthly share and a video tutorial as well, using the stunning new Kaisercraft Daydreamer.

Today I am sharing a little bit of mixed media focusing on using your stamps, if your anything like me I have a lot of stamps but always forget to use them in my layouts.

 

Kaisercraft Products: Daydreamer Collection: SS341 Sticker Sheet | PP1022 Paper Pad | CS303 Clear Stamps | CT884 Collectables | KM111 White | KM107 Peach |EF267 Moon & Stars Embossing Folder |IT016 Speckles Mini Template |CS161 Honeycomb Texture Stamp | CS292 Fading Dots Texture Stamp | CS878 Sketchy Texture Stamp | CS753 Bubble Texture Stamp |CS150 Triangles Texture Stamp | Other: Stanzon Ink |Heidi Swapp Ink | White Cardstock| Texture Paste

 

The Kasiercraft Daydreamer CS303 Clear Stamps have the best tiny words- you can separate them for individual use or keep them together like I have done to work them into your background.

Dont be afraid to mix and match your texture stamps !!! I dont mount them to an acrylic block as I want them not to be a perfect image this allows me to roll the stamp as I add it to the background, leaving an image that can be blended with other stamps.

Dont forget to add Foam tape to your layers and even your CT884 Collectables…..

 

Heres the video tutorial:

 

 

I hope I have inspired you to get your stamps out and get creative with them, remember if you have any questions ask away in the comments below or if you would like to see me do something I would love some suggestion and you never know you might see your suggestion next month!!!

Till next time have a creative day.

Rikki
