A good friend of mine Sandra Boles took this amazing award winning photo and she kindly let me use it. It goes perfectly with the colours in the ‘Bombay Sunset’ collection with its bold striking colours, clashing patterns and detailed floral designs! I love this photo and simple layout; I have looked at it so many times and can see a life of hardship and so much more. It was taken in Rajasthan.

Pretty Lilac whisper Card with Anita Bownds

July 14, 2017
Hi their,
Kaisercrafters Anita here sharing my last project being on the KC team
A big thank you to Melissa and Kylie for having me on the team for 3 terms I’ve had a amazing time and all the wonderful teammates thank you …
So today I decided I would create a card for my last project
It’s a mixed media card for al those who are wondering how to add a bit of stenciling and texture
Here is my process video
I started with a bit of cardstock cut down to card size
Then I added patterned paper from the paper pad then I chose another and cut it down
to matt on top of the other patterned paper, then I added a stencil and texture in white
Next I die cut a few doilies and layered then on top of each other
Then it was about layering a few collectables and flowers

 

Here is a close up
of the texture and some of the colour blast colour shimmer cube watercolour

You are Amazing layout and process video With Anita Bownds

June 27, 2017
Hi there,
Anita here with you today sharing a layout about my daughter kara
Holding the flag at half mast on Remembrance Day, we are so proud of our beautiful daughter .
With this layout I chose a simple design , focused in a cluster in the middle of the layout
For the base of my layout I chose the whimsical patterned paper
Having the darkest colour in the background and the lightest colours for my clusters
Making it pop on the page
You can check out my video here
Here are some close ups of my layout
I only used a few layers behind my photo including a die cut frame from the collectables to add dimension and a different element

 

For my title I used one of the cut apart specially cardstock happy moments with the rose gold foil

 

At the bottom of my photo I did a little cluster of die cuts from the collectables
