2017/2018 Kaisercraft Design Team’s Creative Space Tour!

August 9, 2017

Do you love peeking in at other people’s Creative Spaces?  Do you enjoy looking at someone’s Creative Space to see how they organise all their crafty materials and like getting storage ideas?  If you said “yes!” to either of these questions then this is the post for you! Today we are venturing inside some of our Design Team’s Scrapping Rooms, Corners and Cupboards to see where they work and how they organise their materials.

How exciting! Are you ready…let’s take a look…

 Creative Space ~ Rikki Graziani

I recently changed the layout of my room to make ”zones” in aim to be more productive, this is the IT zone……

I love these frames from Ikea, I change out the layout whenever I need some fresh inspiration.

My Video zone, where I film my process video with loads of natural lighting and my light box is my best investment yet, having the option to take photos of layout when its dark is great…..

Paper storage which are made by my Darling Hubby, with some stick on hooks for my stencils near my mixed media trolley.

My newest investment, from Kmart…. a fridge organiser that I use for all my Kaisercraft Stamps, Embossing Folders and Paper Pads. I love this as it makes tidy up great and its just there on hand for when ever I need it.

Thanks for looking at my space, hope it inspires you all. Rikki xxxxxxx

Creative Space ~ Kylie Kingham

I recently purchase this storage unit from Kmart for my Kaiser Mists.It is the perfect fit for them all! I usually keep any loose flowers in the screw top jars next to this unit.

This is one of two desks I have. I usually do all my editing and uploading on my laptop here.I scored this tall paper storage unit from a scrapbooking store and it has been the best for keeping my loose papers in.

I store all of my stencils here on these hooks.

This is my second desk and where I create all my projects as well as photograph and film thanks to the natural light.

It is rarely this tidy!

Thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Space by Alicia McNamara

I am lucky to have my own craft room in our current house.  We have lived in many different houses and sometimes I have been blessed with a craft room and sometimes I haven’t.  On one wall in the room I have a white cube shelf with colourful Kaisercraft products out on display.  I purchased the little shelf from Spotlight.  On either side of the shelf I have two organisers where I store the current collections for the month.  The organisers are a Kaisercraft Beyond the Page Kits that I made up myself.

My Creative Space by Alicia McNamara

On the cube shelving I have everything tucked away in boxes.  The white boxes and magazine holders are from Ikea.  The pink boxes are from Bunnings.

I have a round table in the centre of the room that I work on.  I keep this tin on the table with the tools I am always reaching for.  The tin and the mug are from K-mart.

My CreativeSpace by Alicia McNamara

I keep some of my layouts and cards up for ideas and inspiration.  I peg them to the blinds on the window.  Then I change them as I make new ones.  I find these really helpful to look at when I am starting a new Layout or a Card.

My Creative Space by Alicia McNamara

On the other side of the room I have another shelf filled with boxes for storage.  On top of this shelf I keep my die cutting tools, current stamps and my sewing machine.

I wish I could say my space is always this tidy, but that would be a complete lie.  I’m glad I took the photos to prove that I can clean this room up lol!  I often have multiple projects going on in this room and there often isn’t time to clean up in between, well thats what I tell myself anyway!

I filmed a video tour of my craft room if you would like to take a look…

Creative Space – Donna Espiritu

My little craft space is in our bedroom since we have a very limited space in our home. I used to have a separate room for my things but we moved (and moving again in a month!) and I had to be really creative how I store my things.

I got the shelves, table, and cabinet in a “garage sale” of a sort.  I just covered the table with pink contact paper (but will change it to white soon) to hide the old gray surface. If you will look closely, my Silhouette Cameo machine is peeking under the table which I covered with an old soft cloth.

Before, I used recycled shoe boxes to store little things/embellishments like flowers, stamps, stickers, buttons, paints, mists, etc. (Basically everything). Then, I recently bought these white, teal and transparent plastic storage bins to make it more organized and a bit presentable. I am still thinking how to store my papers but for now, this is how I keep them in one place. The others I am not using, were in the brown cabinet/drawer.

I like that I can see through the transparent boxes and easy access to the flowers, stencils, and metal dies.

I have a couple of mini drawers storing most of my inks, stamps and other knick-knacks. The IKEA Raskog trolley stores a hodgepodge of mixed media, watercolors, planners and other stuff like coloring books, rulers, trimmers and lots of crochet/sewing threads (lowest bin, stored in cookie tins). The pink, battered box stores my photo papers and stickers sheets.

Not pictured here, but I have a white poster board I use when I take photos of my projects. I use natural light as much as possible (no flash). I use the boxes that some of my DT kits came with (pizza boxes mostly) to store my finished layouts. I always keep my space clean and clutter free since I have a toddler daughter who likes to “borrow” mommy’s toys. I hope when she gets a bit older, we’ll be able to play together!

That’s all from me and I hope you had fun taking a peek at my humble creative space! :)

Creative Space ~ Renee Aslette

I am super lucky to have my own craft room.  Somewhere I can work, close the door and leave the mess behind for another day.

My room had disaster hit in March, when Cyclone Debbie came to visit where I live and the downstairs of my house flooded, including my craft room.  We did our best to take all my crafty bits upstairs but we are still waiting for repairs to be done.  So this is my yet to be renovated room.

I have a large corner desk my husband made for me.  My video webcam is suspended above that area for easy video recording.

This is where the editing magic happens.  I print all my photo’s from this desk and all the process video editing.

As you can probably tell, my favourite colour is yellow.  That hot air balloon is one of my favourite accessories.  It is a mini candle holder.  My peg board has some inspirational quotes and gifts from friends.

I have two large book cases that hold my flowers, embellishments, paints & inks, stamps, die cuts, paper and silhouette machine.

Everything in my room is organised in colours.  I have boxes and containers of things in colour order.  I would like to think I am a very organised person.

This is not the way the book case is usually organised, but after the flooding not everything has gone back in.  One of my favourite items to use in my room is my typewriter.  The top shelf is buttons and flowers behind.  The second shelf is the stamp storage.

So thanks for coming on a tour of my room.  It isn’t perfect but it is my space.  Looking forward to having my room fixed, repainted, and everything back into its normal place.

Creative Space ~ Jowlina Nolte


it may surprise a lot of people but I don’t have my own dedicated space. I am however fortunate enough to have a space where I can create and make a mess.
This is the cleanest it has been for years just in case you were wondering. A key factor for me is having things in tubs and behind closed doors. Not everything is behind doors but the bulk of my stash is. It helps keep the clutter at bay, and although I would love a beautiful space to display all my work my personality won’t allow for it.

My table area is to one side of our living room. You can just see my table peeking out. Newly built as of 3 years ago is this recycled cupboard we moved from the bedroom to an alcove in the lounge. It fitted perfectly. The nice thing is that we could customize an ugly duckling into something beautiful. I painted the white melamine with chalk paint and waxed it in dark and clear wax.

The cupboard has custom drawers in it – made out of shelves and filled with old ammunition shipping crates. Each drawer has a different creative handle on it for fun.

inside the crates I store odds and ends and some clear stamps in calendar cases. I still need to sort and label a lot of them…

Next to the drawers my DH created this slider door. We cut 2 doors to create the small door and inside are sliders with baskets that house all or most of my bottles, sprays, mists, paint and inks.

Behind the doors are embellishments, cardstock, project life, extra embellishments, Bible Journaling, tools and lots of other stuff.

I purchased this old bank trolley from a scrap yard and painted it in white chalk paint. The drawers hold my most used tools and things like ink, acrylic blocks, rulers, diamante, cutting machine plates, pens, adhesives etc. On top is my command center with my clipboards keep track of deadlines and dates and some mugs with pencils and pens for a quick reach. And some pretty fresh flowers to keep me inspired. Next to this trolley is another one with my tools and things I use even more as well as some to do projects.


To the left of my blue cupboard is a grey cupboard also painted in chalk paint. This is my ink and technique cupboard.
Everything that has to do with inks and techniques is housed here. Its also right next to my table so very convenient. At the very top and bottom is a rainbow color coded arrangement
that adds some order to the chaos.


And to the left of my technique cupboard is an old brown tool cupboard from my grandfather – that is going to be my Kaisercraft cupboard – but still a work in progress.
Thanks for taking a look – its not perfect, but it is my happy place and where I spend hours being creative and making a mess. Its perfect for me and it definitely is a working space.

DT Group Post – A Place To Create

August 29, 2016

Hi Everyone,

Today the design Team are sharing some photos of their craft rooms / craft space where they create.

Maybe you might see some tips, on how they store their products or ideas you for your craft rooms.

so lets check out their wonderful crafty spaces.

Alicia’s Craft Room

Alicia's Craft Room

Storage Shelf

At the top of this little unit that sits on my desk I am storing my Kaisercolour Colouring Books and Gel Pens.  On the first shelf I have little jars filled with Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes.  On the second shelf some larger jars filled with Kaisercraft Paper Blooms.  The next two rows I have my Kaisermists and Kaisercraft glues.  At the bottom is a reel for some coloured twine.

Alicia's Craft Room

Ribbon Rack

Next to this unit on my desk I have a ribbon rack.  At the very top I keep all of my Kaisercraft Pearls, Rhinestones and Epoxy Stickers all neatly stacked into a plastic container.  On the top reel I have my Kaisercraft Glitter Tapes, Printed Tapes and Natural Twine.  On the subsequent rows I have my Kaisercraft Organza Ribbons.

Large Desk Organisers

Alicia's Craft Room

Because I am such a messy crafter I was really needing some sort of storage option for Kaisercraft’s two collections each month.  Piles of papers, stamps and collectables piling up on my desk was not leaving a lot of space for crafting and piles on the floor was not leaving a lot of space for walking lol!  I was chatting to Trudy at my local Kaisercraft store in Robina and she suggested the Beyond the Page – Large Desk Organiser.  This has turned out to be the perfect storage solution for me and my two Kaisercraft collections for each month.   I purchased two Large Desk Organisers, one for each collection.  In the photo above they are filled with products from the April collections; Cottage Rose and Sea Breeze.  The back shelf is perfect for all the 12×12 papers and stickers.  The little shelves in the middle can hold the Paper Pads, Stamp Sets and matching Embossing Folders.  The three little drawers and one large drawer are perfect for holding collectables and off-cuts.  Every month I pack the old collections away and set up the new collections in the Large Desk Organisers.  Then I have everything ready to go and at my fingertips.

Die Storage

Alicia's Craft Room

The Kaisercraft Multipurpose Box is the perfect size for storing my dies.  I attach them to the magnets provided in the Kaisercraft packaging.  This allows me to easily flip through them to find the die I am looking for.  I use the dividers that came with the box to separate the dies into the Kaisercraft categories; Decorative Dies, Decorative Die Words, Card Creation Dies and Dies with matching Stamps.

I hope you have enjoyed a few peeks into my craft room : )

Rikki’s Craft Room

_MG_0733

I am very lucky to have a whole room, it is meant to be formal dining, but I think it works better this way, what do you think? Its a great space with loads of natural light and its a perfect place to scrap with friends.

 

_MG_0709

”Hi my name is Rikki and I might have a decorative tape addiction”, ok I definitely have an addiction but doesnt it look all pretty when its organised?

_MG_0737

For me, my mojo only flows when everything is organised and in its right place so custom shelving is a must. I like also not seeing all my stash either so storing them in boxes works for me but they still have to be organised.

_MG_0738

I hope you enjoyed seeing my scrap space.

‘My Space’ (Collette Mitregas old craft room!)

I sold my house earlier this year so had to pack my craft room up, a very time consuming process, but a wonderful journey of discovery! The great news is I am currently designing my new room and hope to show it to at the end of this year. So for this post, I have given you an insight to my old, very tidy craft room.

I must be honest, it is usually a big mess; I let it get to a point where I cannot find a desk to work on and then have a big clean up and the cycle starts again!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My work area!

I like to keep my most used items close at hand, I hate getting up and travelling across the room to get things! These tiny drawers were originally designed for nuts and bolts, but being a crafter, I knew exactly what I would use them for ….. all those little bits and bobs!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a big stand up work table where I do my videos, mixed media work and patchwork.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here are my trolley drawers from office works. These sit just behind where I work, and house my most used supplies so I can swing round and grab them without getting up.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The other side of my rooms house other tools and books that I do not use so often ….. probably because I have to get up and go get them!!

I love the storage solutions Kasiercraft have, I love to use the beautiful papers to personalise them, and I love how practical they are.

Here are my favourite three that sit proudly in my craft room.

Multipurpse Box (SB2339) I use this for storing my embossing folders.

Two storage ideas by Sonia Thomason

I love seeing how other people store all of their papercraft supplies – there are so many wonderful ideas out there! Lets face it, the majority of us have a ‘slight’ stash problem and trying to keep it all organised so we actually know what we have is a challenge.

Now I will admit to a flower addiction – all colours and shapes – it doesn’t matter! I also like things to be organised and pretty where ever possible which can be quite the challenge with scrapbooking supplies. My husband and daughters helped solve this when they found this gorgeous shelf for me and gave it to me for Christmas. The glass jars are from a local homewares store

Now one of the things that’s hard to store are your embossing folders. How do you keep them neat but still be able to see what you have? I’ve found the Album Pocket Pages are perfect for this! I use the 4 x 6″ Pocket Pages (CM954) held together with some binder rings so I can add to the collection easily

CM954

I also store my templates in a similar way using 12 x 12″ pages. There’s nothing like been able to see all of those fabulous goodies in your craft area!

“Anita’s little studio”

my little studio is still a work in progress as i don’t have a tone of storage yet

Anitas Little studio (1)

but i like my space to be clean and functional  and all tools and scrapbook supplies are kept under my desks

this is a little part of my desk is where i like to draw and write down ideas

Anitas Little studio (2)

i only keep my flowers and a few other bits and bobs on this board as it get over crowded

it looks a bit empty at the moment as i did have the new collections on it .

So i hope the Design team have inspired you with their craft spaces

Kirsten’s craft studio

This is actually the first time, I am showing photos of my craft studio. I have shown one wall earlier, but that’s it.

My craft studio is a light room, with three windows. I have mounted cupboards on three of the walls. In the middle, I have got a table, that can be expanded for crafting guests. I have also got a sofa in the room.

S

Most of the furniture is from IKEA.

My Kaisercraft designteam dies, embossing folders, stencils and embellishments are mounted on the wall, since I use it all the time.

Old collections of papers from Kaisercraft and other papers are sorted in three different shelves. Some of them are hand made from MDF.

I use Kaisermist’s and mists from 13 arts all the time, so those are left on my bench for easy access.

I also do a lot of mixed media, and I have my own storage for metal and things that can be altered. This is one of the drawers with metal gears, computer and metal parts.

I hope you liked the craft studio

A Peek into My New Craft Room

April 28, 2016

Hello Kaisercrafters! Alicia here with you and today I am sharing some photos of my new craft room.  We moved house about a month ago and for the first time in about four years I have a craft room again! All to myself!! It is so lovely to spread out a little more and organise my beautiful Kaisercraft supplies.  Its much more inspiring to sit at my desk and gaze at this loveliness…

Organisation of Kaisercraft Supplies by Alicia McNamara

Project #1 – Storage Shelf

At the top of this little unit that sits on my desk I am storing my Kaisercolour Colouring Books and Gel Pens.  On the first shelf I have little jars filled with Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes.  On the second shelf some larger jars filled with Kaisercraft Paper Blooms.  The next two rows I have my Kaisermists and Kaisercraft glues.  At the bottom is a reel for some coloured twine.

Kaisercraft Pailing Wall Art using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

Project #3 – Pailing Wall Art

This month the gorgeous Pailing Wall Art has been released.  This is a lovely large size and I chose to make it as a wall decoration for my new craft room. I covered the base of my sign with wrapping paper from the Lucky Dip Mix 1 Collection WP801.  This gorgeous white wood panelling paper is a super large size and perfect for this project.  Then I tore little bits of papers from the PP994 6 1/2 inch Paper Pad and glued this on top of the wood panelling base in various sections.  I inked the edges with IP726 Island Ink and then painted on KM105 Kaiser Mist in Turquoise.  Finally I added some KC301 Kaisercolour Black Paint to the edges to add a little more definition.  I added two little quotes from the ST928 Life Clear Sticker Sheet.

Kaisercraft Pailing Wall Art using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

Inside the Sea Breeze Collection there is a large circular die cut 12×12 page called PS447 Pond Die Cut.  I traced this paper onto P2016 Waterlilly and P2020 Sea to make two large circles for the base of my photo.  I distressed the edges of these circles and and added some IP719 Black Ink.  I also added some KC001 Kaisercolour White paint to the bottom circle to add to the distressed look.

I fussy cut the black flowers from P2019 Lake 12×12 Paper.  I fussy cut the green leaves from P2024 Whirlpool 12×12 Paper.

I used the DD757 Large Flourishes Decorative Die, which matches perfectly with the Sea Breeze collection, to cut some swirls from the gorgeous new 12×12 Glitter Card Stock in Midnight.

I cut two banners from GC101 Midnight and GC110 Lagoon Glitter Card Stock and layered that under my photo.  I fussy cut some more blooms from P2016 Waterlilly and the words for my sentiment from P2019 Lake.

 Kaisercraft Shelf Ladder using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

Project #4 – Ladder Shelf

I purchased this Beyond the Page Ladder Shelf a few months back and it has been happily sitting on my table undecorated and storing things for me!  This month though I decided it was time to decorate it with the gorgeous Sea Breeze Collection of papers.  I made it to match the Wall Pailing which will hang above it in my craft room.  I followed the same procedure and used the same products as I did in the Wall Decoration for the base of this Ladder Shelf.  For this project I was a little more liberal with the Turquoise Kaiser Mist and the Black and White Paint I used around the edges of the shelf.

Kaisercraft Pailing Wall Art using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

On each shelf I pasted a word from the Collectables pack – smile, love and believe.

I chose to cover one edge of the ladder with paper and I decorated this side of the Ladder with an overlapping of flowers, swirls, butterflies and bling.

Kaisercraft Large Desk Organiser using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

Project #5 – Large Desk Organiser

This is another project I have had in the works for quite a few months.  Because I am such a messy crafter I was really needing some sort of storage option for Kaisercraft’s two collections each month.  Piles of papers, stamps and collectables piling up on my desk was not leaving a lot of space for crafting and piles on the floor was not leaving a lot of space for walking lol!  I was chatting to Trudy at my local Kaisercraft store in Robina and she suggested the Beyond the Page – Large Desk Organiser.  This has turned out to be the perfect storage solution for me and my two Kaisercraft collections for each month.   I purchased two Large Desk Organisers, one for each collection.  In my head I wanted them to be decorated quite neutrally so that they didn’t dominate the collection colours too much.  But as I started decorating I really couldn’t help adding colour!  Still, I did try to keep the projects quite neutral.

Kaisercraft Large Desk Organiser using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

These are the two Large Desk Organisers empty on my table ready to store the collections for the month.

Kaisercraft Large Desk Organiser using Sea Breeze by Alicia McNamara

Here they are filled with products from the April collections; Cottage Rose and Sea Breeze.  The back shelf is perfect for all the 12×12 papers and stickers.  The little shelves in the middle can hold the Paper Pads, Stamp Sets and matching Embossing Folders.  The three little drawers and one large drawer are perfect for holding collectables and off-cuts.

No excuses for messy crafting now right!  Now I just have to teach myself to clean up during and after I finish crafting…wish me luck!!!

Thats all from me for today.  I hope you have enjoyed a few peeks into my new craft room…maybe it has inspired you to re-organise some of your Kaisercraft Products or create one of these Beyond the Page Projects.  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below…

Happy crafting,

English rose storage drawers

December 12, 2010

I have had these drawers since they were released almost a year ago now, just waiting for that perfect paper to match my scraproom. I couldnt believe my luck when I saw the English rose, it was a perfect match. I now plan to do another set of drawers, the bookend drawers, a clock, and the photo display in the same range. I will be sure to share those with you when they are finished.  I loved the  design of the  ‘Lillian’  paper, and I didnt want to chop it up, so I used the whole sheet for the front of my drawers. I decorated the top of the drawers with  handmade  flowers , along with the gorgeous flourishes from the printed chipboard pack included in the english rose range.

‘English rose storage drawers’ by Karen Shady

materials used: Kaisercraft storage drawers (SB2073), english rose patterned papers, lillian (P599), pearl (P601), florance (P596), printed chipboard (CB119), Kaisercraft paint-antique white, Kaisercraft ink-white.

other: handmade cardstock flowers, prima flowers, ribbon, magnolia die, sizzix die, mod podge.

Thankyou to everyone who left lovely comments on the blog this week for the design team girls. We really love reading them, and appreciate them very much :)

Storage Solutions & Home Decor projects

October 17, 2010

Hi there!

Everyone has storage issues right? Can’t find the right place to store that special item??

Look no further!!

Kirsty Piper – Storage Drawers

“Please tell me that everyone has a drawer like this in their house?”

“I decided to tackle my junk drawer with the help of the KaiserCraft Storage Drawers!”

“I love the shabby look of the Secret Bird Society Patterned papers on this very handy storage solution! I really want to make another one with Hey Birdie papers and embellishments for my girls hair pretties, and my son has one on order to store his little Lego pieces!”

Kirsty Piper: Storage Drawers; Storage Drawers SB2073, Secret Bird Society Patterned papers – Mystery P544, Conceal P549, Shh P546, Paint- Sea Breeze KC043, Paper Tags and Shapes- Manilla EM924, Raw EM925, Clear Stamps Tags CS760, Mini Alphas Latte MA 506, Cream MA505.

Paper Storage Unit – Leanne Allinson

“The Kaisercraft paper storage unit is ideal for storing your patterned papers and cardstock. But did you know it could be a focal point in your scrapping area? With a little paint, subtle stamping and some beautiful patterned papers from the Secret Bird Society collection, you could have a unit like this too”.


“After assembling your paper storage unit, paint all the edges and draws in the colour of your choice. I have used kaisercolour – raw sienna. Cut your papers to size and machine stitch a border around the edges. Stamp some inspirational words or images into diagonally opposite corners. Next add some flowers that have been dressed with pearl bling and pearl brads. On a separate sheet of co-ordinating paper, stamp some leaf images and hand cut around the edges. Tuck them beneath the paper flowers and adhere. Curl some of the leaves to give your project definition. Finally adhere the sheets of patterned paper to the sides and top of your paper storage unit”.

Materials used: Secret Bird Society patterned paper collection – disguise (p547); clear stamps – secret bird society (cs748), lush (cs746); ink – sandstone (ip710), black (ip707), antique blue (ip716); paint – raw sienna; rhinestones – blue grey (rs406); pearl brads – soft blue (em933), pearl (em930); pearls – chino (sb789), pearl (sb713). Other – ink (colorbox); machine stitching; Grace Taylor clear stamp.

Kerryn Lawson – Mini Bookshelf

“I thought that the mini album bookshelf was super cute but I wasn’t really keen on using it for mini albums.  Looking at all the gorgeous new Kaisercraft pearl brads that I now have in my stash, an idea came to me.  My brads are tucked away in a plastic box and I always forget to use them.  I found some cheap jars that were the perfect size for the bookshelf and set about transforming it into pretty but practical brad storage.

“I have used white as my base (my scrapbooking furniture is all white) but wanted to introduce a bit of colour because the white was quite stark.  I used the flourish texture stamp with jade ink on the sides and back, and to tone it down I used watered down white paint over the top”.

“A touch of colour with some flowers and butterflies and my new brad storage is all ready to go”.

Products Used: Mini Album Bookshelf (SB2028), Clear Texture Stamps – Flourish (CS759), Ink – Jade (IP717), Paint – White (KC001), Lush – Ginko Specialty Paper (PS106), Paper Flowers – Sweet Pea (F619), Organza Ribbon – Blue (RI617), Clear Stamps – Tags (CS760), Paper Tags & Shapes – White (EM923), Wood Flourishes – Swirls (SB729), Tiny Alphas – Black (MA513), Lush Printed Chipboard (CB110), Pearl Brads – Pearl (EM930).

Train Tidy – Monika Martinson

“My daughter Isabel (6) has always loved to create – scrapbook, make cards, paint and drew. I cant even remember al the pens and pencils I have bought for her during these passed years, al of them has ended up scattered al over our house because she definitely doesn’t love to tidy up. I´m hoping that this cute train tidy will do the trick, at least for a while. If not, I´ll be happy to use it my self. Actually she is the one who assembled the train for me!”

Lesley Cooper – Bird House key ring holder

“I painted all the pieces with gesso and then with a coat of Antique White paint. I stamped over the paint as I wanted the patterned paper to be distressed and I wanted some of the stamps peaking through. With the alpha, bird and key I coloured with ink and then used distress powder to give that wethered look. I also dipped the flowers into ink and then the distress powder as well. The finishing touch was the pearl strip”.
