Altered Canvas Beach Shack Mabel Sim Mixed Media

Curious Shall have Adventures Canvas by Mabel Sim

February 22, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here again to share with you a little mixed media canvas piece I did with Kaisercraft new collection ‘Beach Shack’.

 

I had used texture paste over Kaisercraft 6×6 Stencil ‘IT460’. It was meant to be mimicking wave ripples, but I had made it seemed like its seaweed instead with the layers of colours I had piled on top. I guess its a creative way to extend the use of the products you own?

I was going for a distressed look, hence I had a makeup sponge ready to sponge on the blues and browns from Kaisercraft inkpads. I had even watered it down to use it as watercolour.

To say that the ephemera I used from this collection is useful will be a major understatement. It had made crafting so much easier and faster as no fussy-cutting is required. Hence, BIG LOVE to these die-cuts.

I also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth that was pulled loose to add additional interest to the canvas piece. It does looks like fishing net doesn’t it?

I had stamped and embossed using the stamp in this collection to create my centrepiece. I particularly like this saying as I always believe that curiosity is the deciding factor to push someone further in exploration.

Beach Shack Donna Espiritu Scrapbooking layout

“Bliss” Scrapbooking Layout by Donna Espiritu

February 19, 2018

Hello everyone. Donna here sharing a scrapbooking layout using the Beach Shack collection

I also used the Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies that coordinates with the collection.

Flourish Pack Beach 35pcs
FL618

Decorative Die – Porthole 
DD808

I don’t have much beach photos or I should rather say, no beach photos at all. But I remembered my dear friend took this photo of me and my family two years ago when we went to Al Wajh, Saudi Arabia. One of the oldest coastal city in north-western Saudi Arabia, situated on the coast of the Red Sea.

I printed two photos and placed it side by side like so. I mounted these with foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I used one of the specialty papers in the Beach Shack collection as background. Then I brushed a combination of blue, teal, brown and black watercolors. Then magic happens as beautiful patterns in the paper are revealed.

I layered lots of die cuts or collectables underneath and around the two photos. The embellishment is a mixture of paper and wooden flourishes. I also used one paper from the 6 1/2 paper pad that has a wonderful shimmer to it. It’s difficult to capture but the shimmer is beautiful.

I added a thin, brown hemp afterward. I thought the layout needed something to contrast the blueish tone of the page. I placed the brown hemp underneath the photos and the embellishments.

This is quite a simple layout to make and I’m sure you can recreate this as well.

Beach Shack Kavitha Tuesday Tutorials

Sea side treasures – Tutorial tuesday post by Kavitha

February 13, 2018

Hello everyone!!

Welcome to “Tutorial tuesday” post.Today i made a altered hoop using the “Beach shack” collection.This collection has some

real life beachy images and textures.

First step is to coat the hoop with two layers of heavy white gesso.Once it dried i colored the hoop

with pigment ink pads in shades of green,teal,brown and black.

I just dabbed the colors directly from the ink padNext  apply crackle paste randomly on some areas with palette knife and allow it

to dry completely.Next i cut out a circle using chipboard and adhered the pattern paper to it.Since i am going to use lots

of mediums it will give some strength. To tone down the background pattern i applied a coat of watered down white gesso.

Next i added two more paper layers,just stick the lower half of the paper,tear the upper half in wavy form

and curl it a bit to resemble waves.I coated the whole thing with a layer of clear gesso.Next i applied modelling paste through ripple stencils and colored it using sprays in shades of blue,green

and brown.Now stick the base to the hoop.So here is my finished project,i went a bit on grungy side to resemble the deep sea treasures.

To create texture on the background i used gauze cloth and some teared down laces.All the chipboard designs

are also colored in the same way as the hoop

I added some shells,art stones in different sizes and sequins to add more texture and shine.
