Welcome back for another super fun Tutorial Tuesday!
Amanda here, & today I have a fabulous mixed media layout that features 4 different techniques to try with your Kaisermists! It is tons of fun, so let’s get straight into it ;)
Here’s my layout created with the all NEW Sea Breeze collection….
I know, how awesome is this?!! I immediately fell in love with the Sea Breeze collection and it’s Specialty Gloss paper just beckoned for mixed media goodness! So many awesome tips and techniques here – enjoy!
Our first technique is ‘bagging’. To create a really cool effect, with a little more control than spraying your Kaisermist, simply apply with a soft plastic bag. (I use freezer bags but any soft plastic will work).
To apply, simply sponge the Kaisermisted bag in the areas where you want the colour…..
Really cool, huh? For this background, I ‘bagged’ Kaisermist Apple, & Turquoise.
Our second technique is to flick the Kaisermist nozzle for a more random, but small, splatter look. I used Charcoal Kaisermist for this effect.
Didn’t our first two techniques work well to create a fun, background effect? They also really highlight the embossed glossy pattern in the Specialty paper – which creates another layer of texture too!
While that background dries, grab some 400gsm artist paper and get inky!
You’ll need to use a permanent/waterproof black ink & the stunning new background stamp, Majestic Butterfly. I fill my paper with this stamp, so that I have a few options to get creative with.
Next, I select a few of my Kaisermist colours and use them as an alternative to watercolour paint…
(Yes, I paint outside the lines and messy! I don’t believe in time wasting & these butterflies are going to be fussy cut. So no need to be careful ;) )
Once my Kaisermist is dry, I use a waterproof, fine point, black pen to ‘touch up’ any of my stamping.
And now, grab your scissors and get fussy cutting! :)
Our fourth technique for fun ways to use your Kaisermists is to use them to hand colour our favourite Wooden Shapes. I sprayed my hearts with Kaisermist: Charcoal.
Tip: If the wood veneers are a little porous, allow to dry and then spray a second coat of colour over them.
Now, to get our layout complete, you’ll need to die cut the doilies in black cardstock, as shown below…
And now it’s time to assemble!
Attach some Sea Breeze Collectables, as well as staple some craft wire to the layout as shown…..
Next add a couple more of the Collectables, then add the larger doily.
Attach your photograph to the smaller doily then adhere to layout. Also attach the large, hand painted Majestic Butterfly in the centre of the large doily. Add a few paper & mini paper blooms in Grape.
Finally, add your title and those gorgeous Kaisermisted wooden hearts.
Super easy, tons of fun and WOW!!!
Hope you enjoyed learning a few different ways to use your Kaisermists!

As always, the NEW collections for this month were so incredible that I just had to create a few extra layouts with them!
Here’s more mixed media layouts with the super cool Sea Breeze collection…
Isn’t this cool?! I used the ‘bagging’ & nozzle ‘splatter’ techniques on this layout too!
I also used modeling paste & the Designer Template: Cobblestone to add more texture to the background. Here’s a closer look….
Love the ‘grungy’ feel that the cobblestones create, & how cool are the epoxy star stickers?! Perfect for boy pages!

The next layout I am sharing features the same patterned paper & turquoise Kaisermist – but what a differrent look……..
So pretty! And those gorgeous painted stripes? Well, another cool way to use your Kaisermist is to add a few drops to gesso & mix! I love the softness of the colour in this one. The gold pops add a fun element, & keep an eye out for more glitter cardstock coming soon ;)
Here’s a closer look……
Love it! Such a very different look created with the same pattern paper.

I could have kept creating with Sea Breeze all month long…..but there are two stunning collections this month, & the second one is Cottage Rose. It is prettiness overload!
Here’s my mixed media take on this very elegant & feminine collection….
I adore this! So elegant and pretty! And this time, I mixed few drops of Kaisermist: Candy into my modeling paste and applied with a palette knife and the Lace Template. Just beautiful!
And yes, there’s that stunning Majestic Butterfly Stamp again too – I think it’s my new favourite!
