Hi everyone, Sonia here with one of the amazing August Collections – Barber Shoppe! This week the Design Team is also focusing on Templates so it was time for me to get out the Texture Paste and KaiserMists and get playing.
Barber Shoppe is a gorgeous, masculine collection of muted blues and greens with dark highlights and delightful vintage imagery. However, I wanted to show this collection can be used for the girls in your life as well as the boys!

The Grunge Template has four fantastic patterns for you to play with – I used the circles and lines parts of the template to give fabulous dimension to my page:
Once I’d put down my base papers, I used the ‘Grunge’ Template and randomly added Texture Paste to my page:
Once the texture paste was dry, I sprayed the surface with KaiserMists in Turquoise (KM105) and Denim (KM106). Then I flicked the Turquoise, Charcoal (KM101), White (KM111) and Coffee (KM113) over the page. The mists highlight the gorgeous patterns that the template and texture paste have added to the base papers:
Once the background was completed, I added my photo and embellishments to finish the page.
The new Flourish Pack (FL580) is full of fabulously shaped cogs. I heat embossed them using an aged silver embossing powder and then added them to the layout:
Finally add some gorgeous Kaisercraft paper blooms and rhinestones to add a ‘girly’ touch to your project:
I hope you enjoy playing with the new August collections and embellishments from Kaisercraft. Happy crafting!
