One of the things that I am loving at the moment is getting back in touch with my stencils and playing with some ink….. it has been awhile.
Use some blender brushes through the stencil and keep building up the colours ….. dont like what you did? Dilute with water and add some more when its dry….. this will give some depth to the layout and background.
Add foam tape to different elements throughout the layout, this will add interest and also allow you to add more leaves and see glimpses of your mixed media work.
So I am off to catch some some sunshine…… till next time have a creative day.
Good morning how are you? Well I always joke about needing more time….. we are lucky as its a leap year and we have another 24 hrs…..what are you planning to do with your extra time? Myself I am here to finish off the month with a layout using the amazing Native Breeze.
Good morning how are you? Its that crazy time a year and not long till Christmas Day so I would like to wish you and your nearest and dearest an amazing Christmas and even better New Years.
Today I am here to share with you a quick little layout using the amazing Oh Happy Day collection, what do you think of the rest of the teams shares so far? Its a really fun collection and perfect of all those birthdays that we take 100 photos of.
I have created a process video if you would like to follow on HERE and if you would like a downloadable PDF you can get it from HERE
This collection has some amazing pops of foil really adding the perfect touch to any celebration.
Dont forget to add a little CURIOS to finish off the page its the perfect little thing.
Sometimes you might find your background a little bit stark add some Kaisermist Gold to help break up your background , it goes great with all the metallic foils.
Good morning how are you? Sometimes a collection comes along and you have an instant love for it this NEW collection – Grand Bazzar is this for me. Today I am sharing with you how to showcase all the amazing pattern in this collection.
Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months collections? They are very inspiring and today I am here to share with you a fairly quick and easy layout especially when we are getting to the crazy part of the year where we want to scrap but we are finding it increasingly harder with time, family and all that that goes with the festive season.
Now if you want to see how the flowers where made you can follow the link here and see how to create your very own Art Foam Flowers.
So to start off I would spend the time making the flowers and setting them aside it can be a little bit labour intensive but you could just make them all with Kaiser Art Foam white and colour when needed for all your layouts. I used the Kaisercraft 3d layered
Peony die. I used some rhinestones and some stamen centers.
Another thing to point out is I used paper clay in a mold to create my shells so thats another thing to do ahead of time as its takes roughly 24 hrs to dry. They are very lightweight and work considering as an option when creating this style of layout.
If you dont have it is ok try real shells …..
To finish off the layout its all about all the bumpy, lumpy things like art stones, sand, prills and something sparkly drew drops, diamond dust, glass shards……
With Christmas just around the corner ( I know but it really isnt that far away) it gets you thinking of the decoration process for me its all about spending time with those special and dearest to us and I love setting the Christmas decorations out to make it a little bit more special…..
So why dont you give it a try I promise it is easy to make maybe a little fiddly in parts but it is worth it. I have even made a video tutorial so you can follow along while you create your own flower center piece.
