Be You Layout Tutorial by Mabel Sim

July 24, 2018

Hi Friends!

It’s Mabel here today and I am sharing with you my final layout I designed for Kaisercraft using the gorgeous Gypsy Rose collection.

The past 1 year had been hectic but oh-so-fruitful. I managed to snap up a job after my graduation and to design for Kaisercraft all at the same period of time! I must thank Kaisercraft for giving me this once in a lifetime opportunity and I am sad to bid goodbye.

Sad words aside, I am pretty sure you had seen other designers scrapping with this gorgeous collection. I am in love with the colour scheme and this is a perfect example of girly rustic theme.

I first started out with P2574 Quirky and reverse side of P2568 Inspiring. I thought that the contrast brought out was pretty.

After which, I layered reverse side of P2573 Thatching. The purpose is to create intersect lines so as to capture viewers’ attention.

To create more effects, I had used IP725 Petal Pink inkpad as my stamping ink on my layout base as Inspiring is dark coloured. I will need to select light pastel base ink in order for my stamping to show.

As I don’t require precise stamping, I would tend to prefer inking my stamp directly instead of pulling them from their plastic sheet. It does save me the convenience of looking for my acrylic stamping pad.

After I am satisfied with the result, I went ahead to cut my photo mat to a size slightly bigger than my photo. I had used the reverse side of Quirky.

To add some special texture to my layout, I decided to layer cheesecloth under my photo mat.

The trick to using cheesecloth would be to cut them into your desired size, and gently pull them apart so as to create a more natural effect.

Generally, the structure of my layout is completed! After adhering embellishments, my layout would be officially completed.

Ta-da! Here are some close up shots.

Hide and Seek Canvas Art with Kylie.

July 20, 2018

If you haven’t had a chance to as yet, you really must check out the new ‘Hide and Seek’ collection now available. So many adorable prints and colour ways. There was so many things I could think of to create, but today I am going to share with you an ‘Off the Page’ project I have completed.

The little Fox die cut, specialty paper really caught my eye. I decided to create a canvas wall art for my studio.

I wanted my artwork to have a woodsy or vintage boho feel to it.The die cut is brown to its main side but I decided to flip it and use the reverse which was white.I felt this gave it a much softer feel.

Lots of varying papers were used to back the die cut. This process was really simply! I merely traced each shape with a pencil before cutting and adhering to the back of the die cut.

Originally for this project I had selected a 30cm x 30cm canvas. In the end, because I wanted the elongated feature of feathers and draping vines to one side, I went with a 30cm x 40cm canvas.

I made a lot of the flowers using the new Art Foam sheets and many floral dies. I also added lots of the Paper Blooms as well. The Art Foam is SO easy to work with and I love the effect it gave.

I really wanted the Fox to stand out from the canvas so I cut up strong cardboard from a delivery box and added this to the back before gluing it to my canvas.You could also use foam strips or dots.

The gold feathers I used have been sitting in my stash for a while but I finished off my canvas by adding in some of the wooden feather flourishes. I didn’t add colour to them, leaving them in their raw state as I love the rustic element it added.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my canvas today.

Best Wishes,

Kylie.

Art Foam Flower Tutorial

July 17, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some                         different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and                              embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals.                    Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

 

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.

Moments layout by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

June 22, 2018

Hello!

Tatiana is here with you today and I’d like to share layout with one summer time moment. For my project I used beautiful new collection ‘Anthology’. This collection is just perfect for the nature inspred projects. There are a lot of elements (herbs, leaves, butterflies etc) which can be fussy cut.

 

So I started from fussy cutting flowers from Botanist paper, herbs from Herbs paper and butterflies from Enthomology paper. Then I layered fussy cut images, collectables and stamped images behind the photo and added sisal. I also created two small embellihment clusters and partially hid them between the layers.

On the final step I adhered rhinestones to the layout and flicked the charcoal mist randomly over the layout.

Kaisercrft products: P2542 Entomology | P2543 Plumology | P2544 Botanist | P2548 Herbs | CT938 Collectables, SS364 Sticker Sheet | Flourish Pack – FL626 Curiosities | Mini Template – IT033 Film Strip | Die & Stamp Set – DD980 Grateful | Ink Pad – IP719 Black & IP723 Vintage | Rhinestones – RS404 Champagne & RS406 Blue Grey | Kaisercard – CD110 Mocha | T321 Acid-Free Craft Glue
