Cards with Cherry Tree Lane Collection

Kaisercraft's new collection Cherry Tree Lane, is fantastic for those vintage cards. For these cards I have used Specialty paper Perforated letters (PS476).

There are five cards in total, using the coloured images from the paper as the focal point and the cards, and the other images as layers under this image. 

You can get more inspiration for using this collection over in Kaisercraft's blog.

Mixed media layout with the Cherry Tree Lane collection

Kaisercraft is out with a super new collection, the Cherry Tree Lane. I have created a mixed media layout with papers from the collection. 

The layout has been created, using lots of layers and 3D tape between the layers to build it up and show the dimensions.

I have used stamps on the background, to create some pattern.  I have also used the template together with rust paste. The dimentional layers can be shown under the "Remember this" quote.

I have also used one of the texts from one of Kaisercraft's sticker sheets, to create some text on the background.

A lot of my layouts are very dimensional, and are therefore mounted in frames or on a canvas. This layout has been mounted on a canvas, that has been mounted in a frame.

Happiness is a Perfect day - A House box

I got inspired by all the doors in this collection, and created a box that looks like a little house. I have used the Ubud Dreams collection together with a designer template to create some extra texture to the little house.

The house box, is built as a simple box, with a roof on the lid.

I have used a stencil with gesso in a few places, to create texture on the walls.

I have also added some moss paint and flowers.

I have added the door and some windows from one of the papers in the collection (Mantra).

I have also added collectables from the collections.

Mixed media with chalk, rust and concrete paste

Hobbykunst has got some really sweet frames in MDF. This is one of the frames, decorated with chalk paint and concrete, together with a hint of rust. 

The frame was first painted in light blue chalk paint. Then I added concrete paste. This paste is soft to work with, as thick paint, and easy to spread with a sponge or paintbrush. When the concrete paste dries, it hardens, and it is good for adding other paints, mists or mixed media layers on the top. 

The background inside the frame, is a patterned paper from 
Prima's collection "French Riviera" -  Journees De Reves et Aventures. This collection is a collection I have used a lot. This was my last paper from all the piles of paper from this collection. 

I have created the mixed media picture in layers. I have used Kaisermists on the background paper, and stamped onto the misted paper with background word stamp from Kaisercraft and a ruler stamp from Technique Tuesday - Measure Up. I used Archival ink for the stamping, as it is not water soluble. 

Then I have added layers with micro beads, metal, computer parts, painted with rust and copper paint. There are also some copper buttons mixed with Prima and Mathia flowers.

A little forest friend, and a new Design Team

 I was thrilled to be invited to be a part of the LDRS creative team, just before Christmas. This is the first card I have created for LDRS.

My first card for LDRS is this card with one of their own stamp and die sets; North Woods. I have used the stamps to create a little forest scene . The images have been simply coloured with distress ink.

The papers, High Tide, and wooden icons are from Kaisercraft. The die used here is the Fancy rectangle die set  from the Creative Basic set. 

I often decorate my cards quite simply inside. I used the rectangle die to create space for writing a personal message inside the card.

Mixed media canvas - inspired by Finnabair

In the end of September, we had crafty days at Hobbykunst. During the crafty days, I had a demo in mixed media - dry painting and painting rust effects. During the demo, I worked on a canvas, that I finished a few weeks afterwords. The canvas is very inspired by Finnabair's work.

The right side of the canvas, has been created using lave and Finnabair's sculpture medium. The lace has been added in ruffles. The sculpture medium makes the lace go hard, when it dries. This is fantastic to work with. I have added old zippers, screws and metal springs around and between the lace. At the left, I have added a thick piece of cardbard. I have used several pieces of cardboard under it, to create depth in the canvas.

I have used old pieces of a sewing machine on the left side, together with different metal and plastic bits and bobs. I have used liquitex heavy gel as a glue. The canvas has been painted black. Then the right side was painted with Finnabair and Folk Art rust paint, and the left side has been painted with Finnabair's Art Alchemy, Opal Magic and Mica powder.

Here, I have tried out both Finnabair's and Folk Art's rust paints. They are very similar and they are just as good as each other. 

The rust paint's are simple to use. Paint the area black first. Then paint large areas with the dark brown paint. Make sure some of the black paint shows in some of the valleys. The rust paint has texture, and should be a bit lumpy. Use a paint brush or spunge. Apply the lighter rust paint here and there.

The light areas has first been painted white, Then, I have used Mica powder,  Art Alchemy and Opal Magic paint, to create some of the colour onto the canvas.

The wing itself, is a chipboard wing, that I found on the till at Hobbykunst this summer. This wing was in a basket full of shipboard pieces on the till, for a good price. Dont't miss good offers like this, and visit your craft store, to see if they have any good offers.
