2017/2018 Kaisercraft Design Team Application

Hello friends!

Today’s blog post is a very special one to me.This is my application for another term with the Kaisercraft Design Team.Last week I was sent a beautiful box of goodies, featuring a brand spanking NEW collection, ‘LILAC WHISPERS’.This collection isn’t even available yet, so it is like having a glimpse into a super secret!

This range has such a pretty colour palette, with lots of lilac,greys and soft greens.Lots of floral prints feature and when I first saw it I knew I wanted to create something a little bit unique.I have a vacant space on my craft room wall that I have been itching to fill and I decided to create an ‘Off the Page’ item.

I managed to pick up a small wooden clip board from my local $2 store.

I decided I wanted to cover the silver of the clamp.To do so I needed to add several coats of Heavy White Gesso.I didn’t really stress over gaining an even coverage as I want a really shabby finish.In the end I think I used three coats of Gesso before applying a crackle texture.To finish, I applied white paint once the crackle paste was dry with a palette knife.

I was super happy at the finished result. At this stage I also painted around the edges of the clipboard with a coat of Gesso followed by white paint.You can see this in the next image…….

Next using the clipboard as my template I traced around it on my chosen paper, followed by cutting it out.I adhered the paper with glue.

**TIP- Dilute the glue a little with water and apply with a soft brush to ensure a smooth finish once dry.

Next I applied some Modeling Paste with a palette knife to the beautiful template.I adore the little blossoms on this.By the photo you can see I have applied it to opposite corners of my board.

Next, I set about fussy cutting many blooms from the printed papers as well as using some of my favourite Kaisercraft dies.Making paper blooms is probably my most favourite thing to do.IMG_5677

Slowly, I began layering all my paper blooms and leaves together.I won’t lie, I really take my time doing this.Often with the help of tweezers! Its about layering and building height,texture and dimension.Once I got to this stage I was getting pretty excited to see the results I was hoping for!I’ve tucked in lots of collectables also.

Once the bottom corner was complete I started with the top.Look at that crackle!!!!

Once my project was completed, I was really happy with the overall combination.Again, the colours to this collection are beautiful!

Here is a little look at some detailed images…….

I love the quotes on the sticker sheet.I like to crumple them a little for effect before adding them.

Once completed, I also added some white paint splatters for effect, as well as more of the quote stickers for a main feature.Because I love bows, I couldn’t resist a small, dual layered one added.

It may not make it to my wall, as I really liked it free standing as well! Hmmmmmm………

Here’s good too!

That’s all for today,

I hope you have enjoyed my project! Until next time,

Kylie

August collections with the Kaisercraft Design Team

Hello friends!

Today I though I would share with you a few projects I have completed for the Kaisercraft Design Team featuring the new Christmas Wishes and Barber Shoppe collection.

Let’s start with Christmas Wishes! I love this range and the break from more traditional Christmas colours.The pastel tones and lots of added gold certainly made a winner for me!Here is a sneak peep at just some of the range-

So delicate and pretty!

Here are two of my projects for August.I decided to do a Shabby Chic inspired layout , which this range suited perfectly to.This was my finished result-

And another fun project completed was my paper wreath.I did lots and lots………And lots of fussy cutting for this project but it was well worth it.By folding and pinching the paper petals gave the finished result a 3D effect.
