The second video is how to make this beyond the page hoop with the new Kaisercraft Stargazer Collection…..

 

 

By making your embossing powder thick you can run it like paint also you can add things into it and they will stick……. Like these Mylar Flakes.

Its easy to hand colour and custom your flowers to what ever you need, you can use any medium: ink, watercolour crayons, mist. The possibilities are endless.

 

I just use a baby wipe to apply the colour…. Why? I love the softer effect it gives to you.

Dont forget to add other elements like pattern paper leaves into your flower clusters…..

 

 

 

Another way to customize your flowers is by adding things to the centers, also mix and match your dies to get different flowers.

 

 

I hope I have inspired you….

Till next time have a creative day.

Art Foam Sheets Donna Espiritu Stargazer

Stargazer Layout by Donna Espiritu

May 18, 2018

Hello everyone! Donna here with a project using the Stargazer collection.

I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook layout using one of the many photos of my daughter while she’s asleep. I love taking photos of her while she looks like a little angel… coz when once she wakes up, well… you know what happens when our little angels are awake :D

So on to my layout… I turned my photo into black and white so it will blend beautifully with the colors of the Stargazer collection.

The background paper already has dark blue splatters but I still added more using white, black, turquoise and lavender misting sprays. After placing everything I splattered all the misting sprays again with the photo covered so it won’t get any unwanted splatters.

I used the Navy art foam sheet to create the flowers and accentuated them with Ice Blue Rhinestones. It turned out really pretty! Love the contrast of the dark blue flowers and how the rhinestones sparkle. I only used two layers of art foam flowers though compared to the others I did with 3-4 layers. The dark color and the petals already made the flowers look fuller so I kept it with just two layers.

Using foam dots really create depth or dimension to any project. I’ve used it to adhere the doily and photo. As well as some of the Collectables and art foam flowers. I’ve also added word art strips and stickers as the final touch to my layout.

That’s all from me today! I really hope you liked my Stargazer layout as much as I do!

Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!

Donna Espiritu Pen and Ink Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers Tutorials

“Beautiful” Pen & Ink Layout by Donna Espiritu

April 24, 2018

Hello, everyone!
It’s Donna here with you today sharing a scrapbooking layout tutorial using the Pen and Ink collection. I’ve debated between making a card and layout. Of course, the layout won!

So, let’s start with the short step-by-step tutorial:

  1. I started with a white cardstock as the base. I will be trimming an inch off of this white cardstock later as you will see in the next steps. I mounted my photos with some foam tape for a bit of height.

2. To add texture and a bit of color, I used a mixture of black, brown and white metallic mists. I kept on adding white glimmer mist until it mixed beautifully with the brown and black mists. Using a heat tool, I dried the splatters before adding modeling paste with a spatula and stencil.

3. I placed a doily underneath the photo before adhering with glue.

4. I fussy cut a lot of images from one of the Pen & Ink specialty paper. I love how vibrant the black images are against the soft sepia tones of the papers in the collection.

5. As mentioned earlier, I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock. Then, I adhered it on the Lacey patterned paper.

6. I started embellishing after this with the Collectables and the rest of the fussy cut images from the specialty paper, Antiques.

7. For the final touch, I scattered black rhinestones following the diagonal flow of the page design.

Here are more detailed shots of the finished layout

I tucked in some wood flourishes and left them as is for a bit of color contrast.

I mounted some of the ephemera pieces with foam tape for dimension.

That’s all for now. I hope you liked my project! Do leave a comment if you have any questions regarding today’s project.

Thank you so much for dropping by and see you with a new project in a few days.

Happy crafting,

Donna

Altered Canvas Beach Shack Mabel Sim Mixed Media

Curious Shall have Adventures Canvas by Mabel Sim

February 22, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here again to share with you a little mixed media canvas piece I did with Kaisercraft new collection ‘Beach Shack’.

 

I had used texture paste over Kaisercraft 6×6 Stencil ‘IT460’. It was meant to be mimicking wave ripples, but I had made it seemed like its seaweed instead with the layers of colours I had piled on top. I guess its a creative way to extend the use of the products you own?

I was going for a distressed look, hence I had a makeup sponge ready to sponge on the blues and browns from Kaisercraft inkpads. I had even watered it down to use it as watercolour.

To say that the ephemera I used from this collection is useful will be a major understatement. It had made crafting so much easier and faster as no fussy-cutting is required. Hence, BIG LOVE to these die-cuts.

I also added bits and pieces of cheese cloth that was pulled loose to add additional interest to the canvas piece. It does looks like fishing net doesn’t it?

I had stamped and embossed using the stamp in this collection to create my centrepiece. I particularly like this saying as I always believe that curiosity is the deciding factor to push someone further in exploration.

Others: Canvas | White Texture Paste | Cheese Cloth | Embossing Powder | Heat Tool | Makeup Sponge | Brushes | Palette Knife

 

That’s all for my posts today.

Beach Shack Donna Espiritu Scrapbooking layout

“Bliss” Scrapbooking Layout by Donna Espiritu

February 19, 2018

Hello everyone. Donna here sharing a scrapbooking layout using the Beach Shack collection

I also used the Wooden Flourishes and Decorative Dies that coordinates with the collection.

Flourish Pack Beach 35pcs
FL618

Decorative Die – Porthole 
DD808

I don’t have much beach photos or I should rather say, no beach photos at all. But I remembered my dear friend took this photo of me and my family two years ago when we went to Al Wajh, Saudi Arabia. One of the oldest coastal city in north-western Saudi Arabia, situated on the coast of the Red Sea.

I printed two photos and placed it side by side like so. I mounted these with foam tapes for a bit of dimension.

I used one of the specialty papers in the Beach Shack collection as background. Then I brushed a combination of blue, teal, brown and black watercolors. Then magic happens as beautiful patterns in the paper are revealed.

I layered lots of die cuts or collectables underneath and around the two photos. The embellishment is a mixture of paper and wooden flourishes. I also used one paper from the 6 1/2 paper pad that has a wonderful shimmer to it. It’s difficult to capture but the shimmer is beautiful.

I added a thin, brown hemp afterward. I thought the layout needed something to contrast the blueish tone of the page. I placed the brown hemp underneath the photos and the embellishments.

This is quite a simple layout to make and I’m sure you can recreate this as well.
