Story Book

The little things – layout

I have used papers from the Story Book collection. I have also used a diecut as a stencil, and used gesso and inkpads over the diecut to create effect. I have also sprayed with Kaisermist to create the white splashes.

The gentleman’s travel desk

This little travel desk folds together to a 30cm x 15cm x 15cm box. The box has been made from scratch, and has been built out of card board.

The box locks together with strong magnets.

The box looks like a set of draws on the back.

The box opens and the draw can be pulled out to create the desk.

The collection had papers with books, old pens, letters and a frame, which can be fussy cut and can be added to your creations.

There is a small door in one of the shelf, that can be opened, to reveal the room inside.

In one of the shelves, I have created a small draw, with a few bits and bobs and a small frame.

Finders Keepers

With this collection, I have decorated a paint pallet.

Life is like a photography pallet

The paint pallet has been painted with gesso, and then sprayed with Kaisermist. Then I have used a stencil and gesso to create some of the patterns on the background.

The collectables and the images has been added in layers. I have also used a photo slide under the camera for decoration.
