Boho Decor frame | Kaisercraft

Hi..
Today I'm sharing my take on the Kaisercraft DT decor challenge 
I brought a few Moulds off eBay to play around with the paper clay
And I went to a few op shops and got a few frames to decorate 


I glued the paper clay bits down with gesso and covered them with texture paste
Then I added a few drops of mist and added a pink tinge to the White texture paste


Then I decorated inside the frame with patterned paper and collectables 
and a few stickers and a bit of cotton thread and a splash of mist

I'm starting of with a layout of my beautiful bird who thinks he's all that and a bag chips!
A Total cheeky bugger 
With this layout I wanted to keep the colour tones around the same as the photo 
Using light pink in the background with the wonderful mandala template 
Contrasting it with the blues hues and the oranges tones


With lots of fussy cut flowers along with that cute dream catcher tucked in under the fussy cut flowers

I created lots of paper layers starting with the Polaroid die cuts at main element 
The photo is of us driving home after spending the weekend camping something that we don't get to do all that often as the girls have sports on the weekends 


I did lots of clustering of collectables around the photo and a cluster of collectables 
In the bottom right hand corner 


I added some double sided foam tape to the back of my collectable title to pop it up

Hi..
Here is my application for the Colour Blast call..
I was super excited when I won some of the fabulous Colour blast products colour paste,embossing powder and shimmering mist from a challenge I had entered a few months ago at Kraft plus 
I couldn't wait to play with some new mixed media products and I absolutely love using the colour bast paste it makes great backgrounds with stencils and drys fast . 
This was my first play with all 3 products 


Since this layout I've used it on some others but I can only share a peek

Dream Catcher | Kaisercraft

Hi ..
Today I'm sharing a dream catcher I created for our dream catchers Kaisercraft post
I had a wire ring lying around that I was going to get around to using and it was the perfect size to create the dream catcher 
I wound normal copy paper around the wire ring until it was all covered 
Then I cut a bit of patterned papers to go on the back side of the ring and then die cut 
The ornate charm die in the pink patterned paper and added it to the background to give it that laced look..ext I fussy cut out some flowers and layered them onto the diecut ornate 




Then I added some collectables and and some rhinestones 
Before gluing done the collectables I poked 3holes in the bottom of the dream catcher circle and added some twine beads and more collectables 
Then I glued down the rest of the collectables,feathers ,flower and leaves

Ps I'm pretty sure if my daughter Eve keeps on claiming all my creations she won't have any room left on here walls in her room lol...

Stuck Sketches Guest Design Team

Hi
I'm super excited to be guesting over at stuck for sketches this month 
When I first looked at the sketch I was thinking lots of white space but I just recently received 
Some colour blast products and I couldn't wait to play with it and some fabulous 2crafty chipboard 


So here is the fun sketch pop on over and check out the inspiration from the DT 

I went a little more mixed media on this layout then I normally do and I love how it turned out
The photo on the layout is a wide shot of my mum and Bobby fishing 
 I think this layout would look lovely in a frame..


I used all 3 products from the colour range of the colour blast the paste,embossing powder and mist
I also used some of the little cut outs from another layout I created using my cameo
Adding a little bit of ink to the edges to contrast with the beautiful patterned papers from Prima salvage district .


I used the embossing powder on the flowers of the chipboard 
The paste in the background using a stencil 
And flicked the mist in the background over the top of the stencilled paste


I also used some stamps on my background around the edges of the stencilled paste
The 2 crafty chipboard is fits perfectly around the photo tucking the tail end of the chipboard behind the photo gives it that wonderful cluster on the side of the photo, topped off with one of those beautiful flowers from Prima the gold kiss box flowers I did remove the center of the flower and used it on a card so no waste their.. I tucked a few stamped clocks under my photo and cluster and under my title 


Supplys used
Kaisercraft patterned paper 
Prima marketing salvage district 
Prima Fairy Bella journaling cards
Kaisercraft stamp
Kaisercraft stencil
Prima flowers
