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.

Documented Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

Create a Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection

January 16, 2018

Hello There Crafters,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.

I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.

I want to create layers and texture.  So  next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.

I allow this to dry naturally.

Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.

To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo.  Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.

Here is a close-up:

Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.

I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.

Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.

This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.

Here is a close-up:

From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.

The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.

Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.

I love this collection and I know you will too.

I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.

Documented KaiserColour Mabel Sim Mixed Media

Documented Pen Holder by Mabel Sim

January 9, 2018

Hi Everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m back to share with you a off-the-page piece that is really simple to make. I had DIY-ed a pen holder that comes in real handy with my increasing pen collection. I will be sharing with you how I had created this pen holder with Kaisercraft’s new collection Documented.

First, I had started out with a toilet roll that I had gotten from my office janitor as it has a bigger diameter more suitable for a pen holder. I had taken Black acrylic paint from Kaisercolour to paint the exterior and interior of the roll black.

To form the base, I had traced the exterior circumference of the roll on a
scrap piece of cardboard and cut it out.

I had also painted it black followed by apply glue on the circumference such that I can
glued it onto one end of the roll to create the base.

Don’t worry about the open edges as it will soon be covered by burlap strings.

I had also cut a strip of P2460 Library Ephemera (flipped side) while coiling burlap strings
on top and bottom of my pen holder.

Ta-da! The final look after embellishments!

Kaisercraft’s sticker sheet and collectables had made embellishing your work so much easier. There’s no need for fussy cutting and it had made entire crafting process so much faster and convenient.

To tie all elements together, I had brush on white gesso to give it a white wash effect. It also works well as a finishing touch.

Others: White Gesso, Toilet Roll, Cardboard, Burlap Strings

That’s all for my short tutorial today.

It is easy and not time-consuming to recreate. I hope you will feel inspired by my project to recreate one of your own and input your style into it. Do share with us your take on this inspiraiton.

Altered Canvas Donna Espiritu Mixed Media Tutorials

“Beautiful” Canvas by Donna Espiritu

November 16, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Donna here sharing my latest project using the Romantique Collection.

“Beautiful” Canvas

I have this square canvas in my stash for quite some time now. So, I decided to alter it and create a mixed media canvas for my project today. Though it is smaller than the usual 12×12 paper I always use for scrapbooking, I still enjoyed the creative process and I love how it turned out.

I used a couple of Kaisercraft Inkpads, modeling paste and Kaisercraft templates to create a textured background

Then, I layered lots of fussy cut images and ephemera die cuts.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the word “beautiful”. It is 7 layers and I adhered each on top of each other to create a thick and sturdy title.

Flowers and rhinestones completed the whole project.

Here is a process video I prepared for you. Enjoy watching!
