ScrapPlezier DT - Dream

I made this layout with a picture of my daughter using Papers from Keisercraft. The background is "Anne" from the Pennyroyale Collection. And the other patterned papers are "Wendy""Jane" and "Everlyn". They are all on sale now - so get the chance to strike a bargain. I have paints, ink and gesso on this page as well. You could aschive the same effect using Acrylic Paint dabbers from RangerDylusions sprays,  and Muliti Medium

I have also used the Soft Summer Nesting Componens Kit from Paper Wings and one of their gorgeous background stamps - The fringe lace clear stamp.

I hope I can give you inspration to buy some paints and mediums and try them out! Don´t be afraid of the mess!

Pillowcase for Linnie Blooms

When  got my new Linnie Blooms stencils I got the idea to use them for a home decoration project. I had a old vintage pillow case lying around that was in a bit of bad shape. But since it was a heritage piece I didn´t want to trow it away. So I came up with the idea of using the stencils to create a embroidery pattern.

 I used the stencil to create my tree and then the fish/owl to sit underneath it. As you can see I have extended the branch so that it forms the base of the tree instead.

And here is my finished result.

As you can see on the closeup below I have made the owl by applying a felt owl.

Hope you get some new ideas on how to use the stencils/masks.

Paper Wings Guest Designer - Tea Canvas

I´m proud to be the July Guest Designer with Paper Wings Productions. I love their mixed media kits and the gorgeous stamps!

This is what I made for the Tea Time July Nesting Components Mixed Media kit.

I love this kit and had a great time creating with it. You can say I have used  most parts of it since the base for this canvas actually are the stiff cardboard that comes with the kit bag. First I prepped the cardboard with thin white gesso. When dry, I glued on strips of patterned paper from the kit. After some more drying I added a bit more gesso, paints (spray mist, acrylic paint) and the decorations. To finish it all of I added a quote by C.S Lewis that I really love.

Settled card for ScrapPlezier

All of my June projects for ScrapPlezier was cards. Maybe it has something to do with the range of birthdays we celebrate in June... I´m showing you another card made by using the Pickled Pear Collection from Keisercraft. I have layerd up the card by using different patterned papers from the collection. Then I added a piece from the collectables and a couple of flowers and a string. The black flower is really two flowers that I have put together with a bit of glue. Hope you like it!

Yellow exam card

I´m showing you a yellow and bright card I made for our nice Teacher exam. I love how it turned out with the different shades of yellow paper and the yellow flowers. The Linnie Blooms canvas feather and leave was just spot on perfect for this project.

To highlight the canvas shapes further, I inked them a bit with a beige ink. Papers from Cocoa Daisy kits. Flowers from 13@rts.
