Today’s brief for the Design Team was to use the lovely new seaside “High Tide” collection incorporating either the Decorative Die DD786 Mixed Media Circles or the Template IT923 Anchors Away.

“You are special to me” – Layout by Kirsten Hyde
People often ask me how I store my layouts, and if I put them in albums. My layouts are often very dimensional, and therefor there is not enough room in an album. I often frame them and put them up on the wall. This layout has got an old wooden frame.

‘Adventure’ Card by Collette Mitrega
I decided to do a mixed media background, they are fun to do, a wee bit messy and the good news is you don’t make any mistakes – anything goes!
I die cut the wonderful ‘Mixed Media Circles’ Die (DD786), and popped it down on a 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of white card.
I used a palette knife to spread some texture paste on top.
I then removed the die cut, (popped it aside for another project!), and waited for my texture paste to dry, (you could use a heat gun, but I had dinner to organise!).
Once dry, I gently rubbed some Kaisercraft stamp pads on the design and random stamped some words so they blended into the background.
I then splattered with Kaisercraft paint – it got everywhere but was surprisingly therapeutic lol!!
At this stage I loved how it looked and stopped the messy stuff and assembled the card with papers and collectables from ‘High Tide’.
Hope you get to play too!

I felt the layout needed some depth with a darker coloured flower. As I didn’t have any dark blue flowers, I took some of the Coconut (white) blooms and sprayed them heavily with the Denim Kaiser Mist:

Happy Crafting : )
This is an 8×8 inches canvas, created with two of the papers from the Ooh La La collection. The photo is taken inside one of the temples, Eikan-d? Zenrin-ji, in Kyoto, in Japan. The temple ground is surrounded by a fantastic garden in the mountain side.
The canvas has been decorated with sprays and mists before it was decorated with beads, flowers and metal embellishments.
I have also used pieces from the collectables from the collection, in between the mixed media items.
