Wooden Flourish Week – Layouts

March 22, 2011

This week we’re sharing some projects featuring Kaisercraft’s range of Wooden Flourishes.

Not sure what these are?

Kaisercraft pioneered these fantastic wooden embellishments. They’re made of super thin plywood that you can use on your scapbook pages, off the page projects, cards and more! Leave them like they are or mist them, paint them, ink them and more!

Here’s just a few of our most popular designs:

FL342 Funky Butterflies

FL302 Birdcages

FL335 Mannequins

Today we’re looking at some layouts using some of our wooden flourishes:

Lady Grace, “Gwen” layout:

Using wooden flourishes on layouts and other projects are starting to become a trend at the scrapbook industry. Who can resist these gorgeous embellishments? You can use it raw or add other mediums like paint or sand.

For some part of my wooden flourishes, I have added a dab of crackle paint to add texture to it. I even distressed the edges to enhance the its intricate details.

    This is inspiring me to use wood flourishes, I’m usually too afraid to know where to start but I may have to scraplift some ideas. Thanks!

    Wooden flourishes are the best. Love the way they frame images. But can I ask what glue everyone uses to attach them to the paper? I worry about the weight.
