Botanical theme altered boxes by Kavitha

June 18, 2018

 

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today to share my new project using “Anthology ” collection

 

This collection gives such a warm feel with natural color tones and elements that inspired me to make a botanical/nature themed

altered boxes.

 

I mainly used fussy cut elements from the “Ephemera” and “Entomology” papers to create the elements for my boxes.

I have also used some miniature garden theme accessories like bird house,watering can etc.

Few pieces from collectables and Flourishes added the perfect finishing touch to my boxes.

I tried to give a ornate/vintage feel to the boxes using few clay embellishments

I love making miniatures projects,adding tiny details is so much fun (and painful too ;)).Hope

you enjoyed my project,do let me know your views :)

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy crafting,

Anthology Card Making Full Bloom Layering

Tips for Layering

June 13, 2018

Layering is an effective and popular way of adding dimension to a project.  Today the Design Team have come up with some Tips for Layering that might be helpful to you when adding layers to your creations.

For adding volume to my project I used collectables, fussy cut images and stamped embellishments. I also added sisal to make the composition lighter and airy.

“Bloom” Layout by Rikki Graziani

When fussy cutting dont be afraid to layer in shapes, like I have done here in circles with everything coming out from that!!

Love Always Layout by Jowilna Nolte

Layer with a purpose.
For this layout I added layered clusters of flowers just below my photograph to ground the photo.
The layering gives the photo somewhere to sit and also frames the image beautifully.

You can also layer ink colours like I did, using two different shades of pink for interest.

Layer stamping on top of inked backgrounds to add interest.
So there are several ways to add layering to your layouts and cards – but always have a purpose for what you are doing.

A helpful layering tip I have always worked with is not being afraid to cut stickers or collectables in half to layer behind or underneath focal points and to build depth. By doing so you are able to get more from your supplies and make them go further.

“You are so lovely “~ by Kavitha

Arranging the layers in slightly angled way gives lots of dimension to your work.Add the embellishments/die cuts in different levels to give more depth to your composition,you can also use foam tape for the top most layer.

Tips for Layering on a Layout

Think of your Layout in Levels:

Level 1 – Paper Background

To add layers to this level you could use stamping, templates, inking, water colours, texture paste

Level 2 – Paper Layers

To add layers to this level you could use fussy cutting, strips of paper, cheesecloth, sewing thread, mounting tape, folding paper leaves

Level 3 – Embellishments

To add layers to this level you could add in Collectables, Wooden Flourishes, Rhinestones, Pearls, Misting Spray.

Hello everyone,

Today i share a new layout using the gorgeous “stargazer” collection,i have a small tutorial too.

 

I applied metallic blue paint “stars &moon” template using flat brush and also gave some random dry strokes

to fill up the space as the background is too plain

Did some random stamping using the clear stamp form the collection

Next i added silver modelling paste through “starburst” burst template.

To compose my design i have used fussy cut elements,collectables and die cuts

Some close ups..

“Dream Big” Layout with Textured Dies ~ By Renee Aslette

For this week’s group post I wanted to show you how you can use the DD483 Decorative Die Texture Criss Cross by cutting it out and then cutting it up and using it on different areas of the layout, rather than using it in one piece.  I used GC102 Glitter Cardstock – Steel.

Here is how the layout turned out!

Art Foam Storage Tin by Jowilna Nolte

I am not one for making too many of my own flowers, but can I just mention how utterly addictive this product and process has been.
I am totally in love with the ease and beauty of it all – and may end up making way too many flowers for future projects.
I created some pretty flowers to spruce up a storage tin in a few easy steps.
