Anthology Layouts Mabel Sim Mixed Media

The Best Moments Layout by Mabel Sim

June 4, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am popping by to share with you a layout I did using the new Kaisercraft collection, Anthology.

I would say Anthology is a collection suitable for masculine projects due to its rich and dark colours. This is a good collection to get if you are intending to craft something masculine.

Nonetheless, if you take a look at my layout, I would not call it masculine but it is definitely not feminine either. This collection gives a good balance between both and i love it!

Others: Cardboard | Brown Pigment Powder | Texture Paste | Palette Knife | Black String

That’s all for my posts today.

Magical Day by Mabel Sim

May 1, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am popping by to share with you a quick 6.5 x 6.5 inches layout I made using the paper pad of the very same size inspired by Kaisercraft’s new collection Stargazer.

If you realised, I love to layer papers at different angles to create focal point as well as pattern attract the attention of viewers. Hence, I had picked 3 different papers from the same collection with same colour coordination but of different blue tones to create some contrast.

Did I actually mentioned before that pre-cut collectables are by absolute favourite and a must in my projects? The gorgeous pieces are so precise that it saves me so much time on fussy cutting.

I had also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth at random areas to add on some interest.

Handmade rolled up flowers will suit any occasion and any projects.

Stamping act as a filler for empty spaces such that your layout does not look ’empty’ as it had added details to your layout. Simple technique but yet so useful.

Just Because Smile Vintage Frame Layout by Mabel Sim

April 10, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am back to share with you a tutorial on a layout I made, inspired by the new Pen & Ink collection.

As I have the intention to layer 2 specialty paper ROUND FRAME together, hence I had trimmed out the inner circle to form a legit frame for pop up.

As seen here, I had glued cardboard pieces onto the back of the frame for dimensional effect.

Typically, when I am adding dimensional effect on large surfaces, I would use cardboard pieces instead of dimensional adhesives as it is more cost-effective. Just a small tip for you. :)

I also tried to made my own flower embellishments. Hence I had cut out a circle. Note that your circle need not be perfect, as the imperfect circumference will add character to your rolled-up flowers.

Next step to take will be to cut swirls for rolling. Note that the width of each swirl will determine the height and compactness of your flower.

A great tool to have will be to use your tweezer and roll the swirls from outside in and then place a good dollop of glue at the centre of the swirl as it will act as the base for the flower.

Check out the few I made!

Moving on to my background, I had used my makeup sponge with inks from inkpad and press it down over the stencil to create some additional interest to the background.

I had chosen to use 2 different tones of browns for variation.

Once my background is done, I proceed to mount on my round frame on top.

Proceed to form your layering and clusters. I had torn off papers for the rugged look as well as to build my clusters even on top of my frame. Dimension is a key to make your layout looks nice and professional.

Moving on to finishing touch, I am stuffing black sewing tread under various spots.

As well as to splatter diluted black gesso onto the background.

Voila! My layout is completed. Here are some close up shot~

Beyond the Page Card Making Layouts Misty Mountains

Pantone Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet Projects

March 14, 2018

If your favourite colour is a shade of purple, than this is your year according to the Pantone Colour of the Year!  So what is this Pantone Colour of the Year all about?  If you pop on over to Pantone’s Website you will read all about the reasons behind why they have a Colour of the Year.

Pantone Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”

The Design Team were asked to create a project inspired by the Colour of the Year – Ultra Violet.  The Team used the new Misty Mountains Collection because it has so many lovely shades of purple running through the designs in this collection.
