Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.
I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.
A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.
A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.
Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you have enjoyed seeing the versatility of this range as showcased by the Design Team the last couple of weeks.
Some more amazing designs heading your way with this month’s ranges…so come back soon.

5 Creative Tips for Using Kaisercraft Templates
Tip #1 ~ Adding Dimension to the Background with a Template
”Living the Dream” Layout ~ By Rikki Graziani
I love using my templates with white ink to add dimension to the background – it mimics the die cut adding dimension.
Tip #2 ~ Creating a Soft, Random Edge with a Template
”Congratulations” Card ~ By Kylie Kingham
A handy tip to remember when using your templates with any medium is to not follow the straight edges of the template.By keeping your medium spread randomly away from the edge ensures a lovely soft effect for your project.

Tip #4 – Create Colour, Texture, and Pattern with a Template
“Perfect Day” Layout ~ By Jowilna Nolte
Use a Template to create colour, texture, and pattern for a layout – you need nothing else to make a beautiful layout. This can be rewarding, economical and creative.
I used my template to create my flowers with and then arrange them to create a field of shimmering flowers acting as patterned paper.
I mixed texture paste with liquid pearls to create a paste in 3 different colours. The cut out flowers can be arranged as you desire and to suit your needs.
A few rhinestones in the centers of the flowers can add dimension and also dresses them up a bit for variety.
As supporting embellishments I used my Collectables pack for additional flowers, leaves, and words.
A few smaller stamped flowers scattered on the background adds delicate details.
One way to add interesting background is by using a template and modeling/texture paste. Want to level it up? Mix the paste with paint, mists or watercolor. Just like what I did with my scrapbook layout.
I also didn’t mix it thoroughly, leaving subtle “white streaks” or “pale shade of pink” to some parts
I also splattered different colors of mists for more texture

Kavitha here today sharing a mixed media canvas with “Romantique” collection.I loved the antique feel of this collection and tried to recreate the same for my background.
To create the background i applied texture paste using “Fluer damask” and “Ornate” stencils,coloured them using antique gold and light pink sprays and did some random texture stamping using archival ink.
To create my composition i used few layers of papers from 6*6 paper pad and a sentiment die cut from the collectables as my focal point.Decorated the canvas using fussy cut flowers and birds along with some elements from the collectables.
