‘Happy Days’~A layout featuring Wandering Ivy with Kylie.

December 6, 2017

Hello sweet friends! Kylie back today sharing a layout I have created featuring the new ‘Wandering Ivy’ collection.I really love all the floral and greenery inclusions to this range and had no trouble finding inspiration to create with it.

Here is a look at my completed layout.I really wanted to take on a Shabby Chic vibe with lots of layering and hints of the greenery showing through…..

For texture, I used my craft knife to cut some slits into my background paper.I then used my scissors to carefully distress the edges a little before adding another paper print behind each slit for contrast.I have folded the opening back a little as well and love the extra little splash of colour this added to my layout also.

Next I set about fussy cutting lots of flowers from the P2433 Blue Fields paper.I made sure to include lots of varying sizes.

I then stamped some vellum with the smaller flower from the clear stamps and embossed them with a mix of silver and white embossing powder.I fussy cut those  out as I wanted to add them with my other flowers to break the colour a little and to give extra texture and dimension.I loved how these turned out!

For balance I used the Provincial Flourish die as leaves…..(OMG this die is a new fave by the way!!) I cut them from the P2436 Archives paper.

I also added some vines cut from using the 3D flower die.They may be tiny but they really do add a great effect to your finished project.

Can I now take a moment to talk about the sticker sheet?? When I first saw it I just wanted to use it all!! From decorative lace strips to floral borders.Ugh! The choices! I trimmed down the large floral border and added it in under my image.I then also trim down the vines and added it over my image.

I finished off this cluster with a cute tag from the collectables.

These colours are just amazing!

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my layout today.Until next time,

Kylie.

Rose Avenue Card with Beck Beattie

October 13, 2017

Hi Everyone, I’m excited to be back on the blog today to share with you a card I created featuring the new ‘Rose Avenue’ collection.  Having boys I tend to create less with these feminine styles, but I am so excited to be sharing with you a card I created using it.  It really is a beautiful collection and so fun to work with.

For my card today I decided to create it featuring a way to use the beautiful die cut Lace piece on a card even though it is designed for a 12 x 12″ sheet.

Other: Doily, Thread

I thought I would take you through a few things I did to create my card today.  To gret started I placed the large die cut paper over the card and then cut to the lines of the card for a perfect fit.

Next I took my flower packet and added some colours to my flowers with a paint brush.  I really love white flowers for this exact reason.  I can colour them up to the colour I need.  if you wish to add in some smaller flowers, just remove a layer ro helpd

 

 

 

 

 

To add a little more fun to the card I also added a little colour in the form of some splatter to help tie in the colours of the flowers to the background.

Here are some more pictures of my card I’m sharing with you today.

I hope you have a fun and creative day.

Happy Crafting!

Rose Avenue Mixed Media Plaque by Jowilna Nolte

October 12, 2017

Today on the blog I am sharing a mixed media project with you using the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.
I wanted to create something a little different to showcase the versatility of this range and just happened to have some wood lying around.
This “thankful” wooden plaque was created on a piece of recycled wood. I created a base using paint, texture paste and pigment powders before adding the top layer
of Rose Avenue using paper and elements from the Collectables pack.

Layered tags and elements from the Collectables pack are layered on top of a piece of paper from the Paper Pad.

Paper flowers on top of the texture paste makes for a beautiful contrast.

Texture paste was applied through the flourish stencil and then colored using pigment powders in pink and green.
The pigments are mixed with water to create a paint or paste and then applied with a medium soft paint brush and left to dry naturally.

Create different layers and dimension by adhering some of the elements using foam tape.

Use the same pigment mixture to add splats all over the plaque for an artistic look.


A few pearls and diamante scattered across the plaque adds some feminine details to an already beautiful vintage looking plaque.
This can be hung on the wall or displayed on a stand somewhere in your home as a reminder to always be thankful.
Such a beautiful way of an important reminder.

Rose Avenue Canvas ~ Video included with Kylie.

October 9, 2017

Hello Kaisercrafters, Kylie with you today sharing a pretty canvas I have created using the new Rose Avenue collection. This collection has a lovely ‘Shabby Chic’ vibe to it with lots of pastel florals included.

I decided I really wanted to create a canvas combining many elements from the range.Here is a little look at my completed work.

I chose a very neat sized canvas measuring 20cm x 20cm (8″ x 8″). I have blended lots of the collectables as well as wooden flourishes for my completed effect.

I have painted and the ‘white washed’ the edges of my canvas before taking the template with modeling paste over the edge.You will see how I did this in my video at the end of my post.

It’s Spring here in Australia at the moment so these colours and flowers were a perfect match!

I have framed my canvas by using a string of pearls which also fits the Shabby Chic theme also.

I have prepared a short process video of how I created my canvas for you to enjoy-

Until next time,

Kylie.

Create layered tags with Kylie.

October 7, 2017

Today I am sharing how to make some really pretty tags using the exact same design sketch, but with different embellishments. This design technique is great for when you are wanting to create several cards or tags all at once.

For my tags I am using the stunning new ‘Romantique’ collection.

This is a really pretty collection with soft ,delicate pastels. Here is a little look at my completed tags-

As you can see the design of each tag is the same, but by intermixing paper blends and embellishments they can be made each uniquely different.

Rugged edges and using foam tape for height help achieve an overall ‘Shabby Chic’ vibe.

Gift tags can be used in an array of projects as well, such as your scrapbook layouts and planning.

Here I cut one of the frames from the collectables in half as an added design feature and for balance to my tag.

I have also included some vines cut from the decorative die DD795 3D Flower. I use this quite a lot in my projects as I love the fine detail it adds.

I have also prepared a video tutorial for you today so you can watch the process of me creating them as well.

I hope you all enjoyed my post today and it inspires you to try some for yourself.

Until next time-

Kylie xo
