Hello Kaisercraft fans!
It’s Technique Tuesday and it’s Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you!
I have a layout to share that I have created using the Antiquities Collection.
PAPERS: ANTIQUITIES Collection: P2740 One of a Kind, P2741 Limited Edition, P2743 Antique, P2744 Valuable, P2745 Treasured, P2746 Precious, P2747 Beloved
KC PRODUCTS: CT960 Collectables, SK807 Sticker Book, CS352 Clear Stamp, FL648 Flourish Pack, IT493 Distressed Dots Template, DD632 Ornate Layered Bracket Decorative Die, Kaisermists KM122 Yellow, KM129 Navy, Ink Pads IP757 Black & IP747 Denim, Paper Bloom F630 Iceberg, SB789 Pearls Chino.
The technique that I would like to share with you today,
is using different papers to frame your layout.
The Antiquities collection has some fabulous papers that are perfect for this.
To start I have used the ‘One of a Kind’ (reverse) as my base page.
I have added some mixed media using the ‘Distressed Dots’ Template.
I have also used the ‘Grunged Paint’ Texture Stamp and the Clear Stamp Set,
to stamp randomly over my page.
When framing my layout I like to use colours that contrast with my base paper.
The Antiquities Collections has a patterned paper, ‘Precious’, that already has a timber frame.
This was perfect for one level of my frame. For the inner frame I chose ‘Antique’ (reverse).
I have adhered the yellow frame to the base paper first.
I have then used foam tape to adhere the wood frame to the page.
Adding fussy cut flowers, from ‘Treasured’ to layer with the frames help add more depth to your page. I have used some in between the two frames and some on the outer frame.
I have then started to build up my page.
I have then used some of the ‘Collectables’ and fussy cut flowers from the papers to build up my layers. I have also used half of an ‘Ornate Layered Bracket’ Decorative Die.
I have then built up pieces of distressed patterned papers to matt my photo.
Some more collectables, Stickers and flowers to finish.
Then I have added some ‘Chino Pearls’ to the centre of my frame flowers.
I hope you like what I have created.
