Fallen Leaves ~ Explore Layout

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Today I am sharing my layout which features products and papers from Kaisercraft's Fallen Leaves Collection. In my layout, I wanted to explore some mixed media techniques for my background and to add some different textures.

I used some torn papers from the collection to add some interest and used a thin layer of white gesso as a base before adding some distress oxide inks.

I also used Kaisercraft a script stamp and stencil to add more texture as well. My paper blooms that I selected compliment the colours in my photo.

If you would like more details including full step by step instructions, click here to visit the Kaisercraft blog.

To purchase any of the products from this collection, visit your local stockist or click here to view the Kaisercraft online store.

Stay safe and well during these challenging times. Find something that brings you joy.

Take good care.

The Last of My Hearts

Hello everyone! I hope that you are safe and well. Sending you all a virtual hug during these unsettling times. I have packed away my felt supplies as I have completed what I can contribute to my school's 1000 heart project, which is part of the #SantaStrong initiative.

Here are some close ups of some of the designs...

I really enjoyed creating these hearts and hope that as a school we have reached the target of making 1000 hearts.

Take good care,

1000 Hearts Project ~ More Hearts

Hello everyone. I hope that you are safe and well. Finally, I am on school holidays. I have some deadlines to fulfill with school during the break however I am grateful to be able to have time on my side to do so. My school is still working toward reaching the target of 1000 with our hearts so I am making some more.
 My first two are a similar take on previous pink hearts that I created. I had left over felt die cuts that I had so I used them to make the floral clusters which you can see.
 These hearts are my favourite. I learnt how to create a beaded edge and it was so much fun. I went and bought more beads today and I plan to film a tutorial later in the week. Stay tuned!
Love the contrast with the grey. I had the chance to add some pretty butterflies into these hearts.

As always, stay safe and well.
