Favourite 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.

You can download a PDF file HERE and if you want to follow along you can do so with a Process Video HERE

PRODUCTS USED:
 
PAPERS: NATIVE BREEZE Collection: P2856 Banksia Bouquet, P2858 Gum Leaves, P2860 Eucalyptus, P2861 Native Flock, P2862 Sundown, SK824 Sticker Sheet,

To start this layout I knew that I wanted the eucalyptus pattern to be further down the page to to move it I chopped off the bottom 3rd and then uses some of that to rip layers to add to the top…..

When sticking the strips down dont go to nuts with the tape because you want to add all the native flowers and fussy cutting in between those layers.

So have fun with your extra 24 hours and till next time have a creative day xxxxx

Moments

Good morning how are you? Nothing like kicking off the New Year with some new collection and feeling inspired….. what inspires you?

I am here with this months new and only collection Lily and Moss……

This collection has amazing soft pink and green tones with some stunning floral features.

For me its all about the layers and adding some fussy cutting in between those layers also. So to see how this layout was created you can follow the process video HERE. And download a PDF HERE.

To be able to add things into the layers dont add a lot of tapes or glues to the edges this allows you to add things and it gives it a freer look.

Add banners from the sticker book to add different details to your layers and finish off with a Curios.

Till next time have a creative day.

Life

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.

You can follow along with a process video here and a downloadable PDF File here.

For me sometimes a lot of pattern papers need to be anchor with a bold colour, dont be afraid to use the brown leather look to be the anchor.

Keeping your layers flat with help tie all your layers together……

To help tie all the colours together use the Kaisermist Gold …. it picks up the mustard yellows from your banners.

Beach Days …..

Good morning how are you? What do you think of this months NEW Collections? They are amazing. I am kicking off the month with Uncharted Waters IN STORE NOW.

So to help you get started I have a Process Video here and a downloadable PDF file here

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.


PRODUCTS USED:  
PAPERS: UNCHARTERED WATERS Collection: P2854 Pelagic, PP1079, CT973 Collectables,

KC PRODUCTS: Art Foam, DD651 Captains Wheel Decorative Die, Decorative Die – 3D Layered Peony, LDB1056 Foam Tape, F627 White Paper Blooms.
 
Other: Paper Clay, Art Stones, Diamond Dust, Copic Ciao Markers.

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……

So till next time have a creative day…….

Boys Will Be Boys

If your anything like me, you have 1000’s of photos but you keep printing more and then you realise I am never going to get rid of the backlog – especially if your doing one photo per layout…. But then this situation has some tricky parts to figure out – how many photos is too many? I dont like doing double layouts? I like the crisp look of one photo on a page…….

Well I have the perfect layout for you!!! Something with a little hidden flip out book that still stays flat in your albums but you can add plenty of photos and journaling while keeping it crisp and clean.

From the inside of the book …. you can customise it to what ever width you need I did it slightly bigger than a 5×7 photo.

This is where the fun beings – adding all your photos and journaling I like to have all my photos touching each other it makes it look like one big photo and it stops that pesky trapped space.

Now to add some mixed media to the layout dont be afraid to stamp over the top of the die cut… I dont use a block for my stamp which allows the stamp to have less of an edge.

Now I just a brush to add my heavy ink….. it allows more control and less waste.

For more details on how to create this layout you can download the instructions here…..
