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.

Kavitha Keepsake Mixed Media Romantique Templates

Mixed media canvas with Romantique collection by Kavitha

November 13, 2017

Hello everyone!!

Kavitha here today sharing a mixed media canvas with “Romantique” collection.I loved the antique feel of this collection and tried to recreate the same for my background.

To create the background i  applied texture paste using “Fluer damask” and “Ornate” stencils,coloured them using antique gold and light pink sprays and did some random texture stamping using archival ink.

To create my composition i used few layers of papers from 6*6 paper pad and a sentiment die cut from the collectables as my focal point.Decorated the canvas using fussy cut flowers and birds along with some elements from the collectables.

Mabel Sim Mixed Media NEW Product Rose Avenue

Live. Laugh. Love Canvas by Mabel Sim

October 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a canvas piece inspired by the sweet pastel colour combination and the floral theme of Kaisercraft’s new collection Rose Avenue.

My focus for this project would be the textures and the layering. On the background, I had created the desired textures through stencils and texture paste and painted them with harsh colours followed by brushing on uneven coat of gesso such that colours will peek through. Layering was also made easy with the use of ephemera and patterned papers great for fussy cutting.

Other: Acetate for stamping, Clear Gesso

I painted a layer of clear gesso over my page to make it easier to work with the mists. The gesso primes the paper and gives you a surface on which to manipulate your mists rather than the mist absorbing straight into the paper.

The collectables in the Boho Dreams collection are simply divine!!!


We hope the Design Team have inspired you to make something “Dream Catcher” inspired!

Have a lovely crafty day : )
