Altered Canvas Donna Espiritu Mixed Media Tutorials

“Beautiful” Canvas by Donna Espiritu

November 16, 2017

Hello everyone! It’s Donna here sharing my latest project using the Romantique Collection.

“Beautiful” Canvas

I have this square canvas in my stash for quite some time now. So, I decided to alter it and create a mixed media canvas for my project today. Though it is smaller than the usual 12×12 paper I always use for scrapbooking, I still enjoyed the creative process and I love how it turned out.

I used a couple of Kaisercraft Inkpads, modeling paste and Kaisercraft templates to create a textured background

Then, I layered lots of fussy cut images and ephemera die cuts.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the word “beautiful”. It is 7 layers and I adhered each on top of each other to create a thick and sturdy title.

Flowers and rhinestones completed the whole project.

Here is a process video I prepared for you. Enjoy watching!

Kavitha Keepsake Mixed Media Romantique Templates

Mixed media canvas with Romantique collection by Kavitha

November 13, 2017

Hello everyone!!

Kavitha here today sharing a mixed media canvas with “Romantique” collection.I loved the antique feel of this collection and tried to recreate the same for my background.

To create the background i  applied texture paste using “Fluer damask” and “Ornate” stencils,coloured them using antique gold and light pink sprays and did some random texture stamping using archival ink.

To create my composition i used few layers of papers from 6*6 paper pad and a sentiment die cut from the collectables as my focal point.Decorated the canvas using fussy cut flowers and birds along with some elements from the collectables.

Mabel Sim Mixed Media NEW Product Rose Avenue

Live. Laugh. Love Canvas by Mabel Sim

October 26, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m here to share with you a canvas piece inspired by the sweet pastel colour combination and the floral theme of Kaisercraft’s new collection Rose Avenue.

My focus for this project would be the textures and the layering. On the background, I had created the desired textures through stencils and texture paste and painted them with harsh colours followed by brushing on uneven coat of gesso such that colours will peek through. Layering was also made easy with the use of ephemera and patterned papers great for fussy cutting.

Live with a full heart ~ Rose Avenue Layout Photo Tutorial by Donna Espiritu

October 10, 2017

 

Hello!  Donna here sharing a scrapbook layout I created using the Rose Avenue collection.

I think this is my favorite from the new collections so far. Primarily because of the florals and pastel colors! I love this combination and there’s a ton of patterns to fussy cut as well. Heaven!

I usually print 2 sizes of photos and since I didn’t want one to go to waste or left unused, I decided to place the photos side by side as I did here with my page. I used a doily to add visual interest.

I did a bit of mixed media to my background first and added some colors using metallique acrylic paints and ink pads.

I mixed different shades of pink and turquoise to achieve the background

I love how the strips of paper looked like after! I used foam tapes to lift the scalloped edges instead of leaving it flat. Then I went into town embellishing the whole page. I love this particular quote (which is in the product strip! So don’t throw those away, you can still use them like I did here!) and I think it matched the mood and angle of my daughter’s photo like she’s facing or looking towards something bright.

Rose Avenue is such a beautiful collection!

Here is a short tutorial I prepared for you.

Lilac Whisper Terhi Koskinen

‘Beautiful’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen

July 12, 2017

Hello Kaisercrafters!

It’s Terhi Koskinen here, happily sharing my long planned scrapbook layout with a massive stitched heart.

The idea came from my social media feeds, as so many talented scrapbookers have found hand stitching really trendy lately. And of course I wanted to try it out! I’m not that clever with needles and if you take a really close look you might find a drop of domething red there too. Tried to cover it with pearls, but things happen when excited and learning new skills.

For this layout I used the beautiful ‘Lilac Whisper’ collection, and as the collection is filled with tender and soft colors and floral patterns, I chose to use this pretty photograph of my two sweethearts posing to me. Beautiful black&white photo goes perfectly with beautiful papers.

Only contrasting part of the layout is the black lines drawn with black marker. Thought it needed something small to give contrast but not much, and this hand drawing made it good.

Now please let me say a huge thank you for Kaisercraft for this amazing and creative year. My crafty life will continue a bit slower for the upcoming fall, but I’m absolutely sure Kaisercraft will be part of it in a way or another in the future too. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities I have had with Kaisercraft, it’s been a huge privilege to work for the kind of supporting company. Thank you Melissa, Kylie and all my team collagues for DT term 2016-2017 <3
