Altered Canvas Donna Espiritu Mixed Media Tutorials

“Beautiful” Canvas by Donna Espiritu

November 16, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Donna here sharing my latest project using the Romantique Collection.

“Beautiful” Canvas

I have this square canvas in my stash for quite some time now. So, I decided to alter it and create a mixed media canvas for my project today. Though it is smaller than the usual 12×12 paper I always use for scrapbooking, I still enjoyed the creative process and I love how it turned out.

I used a couple of Kaisercraft Inkpads, modeling paste and Kaisercraft templates to create a textured background

Then, I layered lots of fussy cut images and ephemera die cuts.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the word “beautiful”. It is 7 layers and I adhered each on top of each other to create a thick and sturdy title.

Flowers and rhinestones completed the whole project.

Here is a process video I prepared for you. Enjoy watching!

Rikki Graziani Rose Avenue Tutorials

“Happy Birthday” Layout and Process Video by Rikki Graziani

October 23, 2017

Good morning Rikki here today with a layout and process video featuring Kaisercraft Rose Avenue…..

This collection has so many beautiful elements its hard to pick just one!!!

So I decided to do a little challenge for myself… working around the fussy cutting that I had already done for the month… when we get our DT kit, I go through it all and sit down over a weekend and cut all the elements that can be fussy cut and then put them in a snap lock bag, that way they are ready when I am ready to create.

It make it a little bit interesting for me for this process video I set myself a goal of constructing a layout in 30 mins or under once my background had dried. I have to say I was very close but having prepared the fussy cutting before hand made it fly along…

By flicking glue you can get a more random effect with  your prills or microbeads….

Dont forget to add your elements between your mat layers this will finish off your layering…..

I hope you enjoyed this layout and process video.

Till next time, have a creative day.

Live with a full heart ~ Rose Avenue Layout Photo Tutorial by Donna Espiritu

October 10, 2017

 

Hello!  Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Rose Avenue collection.

I think this is my favorite from the new collections so far. Primarily because of the florals and pastel colors! I love this combination and there’s a ton of patterns to fussy cut as well. Heaven!

I usually print 2 sizes of photos and since I didn’t want one to go to waste or left unused, I decided to place the photos side by side as I did here with my page. I used a doily to add visual interest.

I did a bit of mixed media to my background first and added some colors using metallique acrylic paints and ink pads.

I mixed different shades of pink and turquoise to achieve the background

I love how the strips of paper looked like after! I used foam tapes to lift the scalloped edges instead of leaving it flat. Then I went into town embellishing the whole page. I love this particular quote (which is in the product strip! So don’t throw those away, you can still use them like I did here!) and I think it matched the mood and angle of my daughter’s photo like she’s facing or looking towards something bright.

Rose Avenue is such a beautiful collection!

Here is a short tutorial I prepared for you.

Letters To Santa Mabel Sim NEW Product Tutorials

Santa Claus Says Merry Christmas! by Mabel Sim

September 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a tutorial with the new Letters to Santa Collection to create a simple Christmas themed frame that is so apt for your Christmas display.

I first start with a 8×8 inches shadow box which I prepped it with an even coat of white gesso. You can also use any white acrylic paint/white opaque paint to replace gesso if you do not own one.

In the meantime, while waiting for the gesso to dry, cut down P2388 Christmas Poinsettia as a base.

I had also fussy cut out my centrepiece for today with P2395 Be Merry. I trimmed out the circle sentiment and mount it on foam tapes to give it some dimension.

Layering is always the key to make your project looks sophisticated. It is actually a very simple technique of arranging your pieces together on different heights. For this time round, I am making use of the rim of the shadowbox to show different layers. I had fussy cut out Mr. Santa from P2389 Dear Santa and stuck it to the bottom corner of my frame.

To balance out the opposite end, I am also adhering pieces from the CT890 Collectables as well as from P2393 Holly & Berries, followed by Christmas streamers from SS347 Sticker Sheet.

Adding pulled cheese cloth will also add some additional interest to the project.

Simply cut down the cheese cloth to tiny bits and tug it gently for the strings to break apart from its usual placement, adhere them to the bottom of your flowers.

Here’s the final look and some close up pictures. :)

That’s all for my tutorial. Simple ain’t it?

Card Making Christmas Christmas Edition Design Team Jowilna Nolte Kaisercraft Scrapbooking layout step by step Tuesday Tutorials Tutorials

Christmas Edition with a pop of colour by Jowilna Nolte

September 12, 2017

 Hi everyone, Jowilna here with my Tuesday Tutorial showing you how easy it is to add a pop of color to paper and elements in a few easy steps.
I love the Christmas Edition Range of papers, but somehow Christmas doesn’t seem right without a bit of color. So I naturally wanted to add
some color to the range and found a really easy way to achieve it.
Sharpie markers were used to add color to the background paper used on my card, as well as some of the collectables.
The elements and paper took the color really well
and made for a striking finishing product – showing just how versatile this range really is.


The secret to coloring is to layer different colors so that you can add highlights and shadows and achieve beautiful shading.
How to color your elements
step 1 – Start by coloring your poinsettia leaves in orange.

step 2 – Next add some bright pink shading down the middle of the leaves and any dark areas printed on the image.

step 3 – Finish off the leaves with a layer of red. The orange and pink combined with the red makes for a beautiful rich color perfect for Christmas.

step 4 – Trim the background paper to size to fit onto the front of your card.

TIP:  Select three shades of green markers to add color to your leaves. Start with the lightest green working to the darkest green and then blend over everything with the light green again for a seamless effect.

step 5 – Color some holly leaves from your collectables pack.

step 6 – Position your elements together and start layering them onto each other.

step 7 – Use mounting foam dots to adhere some of the elements to add dimension to your card.
Layer the elements underneath each other for interest.

step 8 – Apply glimmer paste through the star stencil.

Add embellishments like buttons, rhinestones and ink splats. Use dimensional glaze to highlight some of the berries on the elements from the collectables pack.

I can’t wait to explore more ways of adding color to this range using different mediums and techniques.
The blank slate means the perfect opportunity for creativity and experiments.
