Tomorrows Memories - with Kasiercraft Shine Bright

Good arvo, been running around like a mad person with my middle child turning 10, Easter prep, school finishing up and not to mention a rent inspection (falling in the middle of the holidays), I have just managed to sit down for 5 mins and have a little share with you all.

I love this range, theres something about yellow and black that is perfect for boys and I knew that I wanted to use the diecut pack to show case some of the elements of this Kaisercraft range - Shine Bright.

So if you love yellow why dont you grab some today, dont forget to grab some Kaisercraft Stamps, they add the perfect element to any mixed media page. 

Till next time, have a creative day.

13@rts + Grungy = Happy

Good Morning Rikki here for another guest design team post and something a little masculine for those with boys in our lives. Lets face it there's nothing better than getting a little grungy when doing boy layouts.

To start with I grabbed the 13@rts Color Basic Yellow Amber/ Yellow Sand pattern paper, and I wanted to add a contrast with an additional pattern and colour. So I used the 13@rts Color Basic Square Mask, by tracing and cutting the squares out I had my contrast with the 13@rts Color Basic Black pattern paper, (wait till next month to see what I create with this cut out).

To start the background I adhered the Black Squares to the page using the 13@rts Ayeeda Medium Acrylic Gel Medium  once they are stuck a quick swipe of the 13@rt Ayeeda Gesso all over and its onto the fun grungy stuff!!!

From here is all about building your colours up starting with the 13@rts Ayeeda Ink - Orange, then adding a little of the 13@rts Ayeeda Ink - Bordeaux to add a little depth and richness.

At this stage I felt it needed another contrast colour and I didnt want it to be black as its for my son, when he was 5 years old, I wanted it to be a ''lighter'' grungy, so this is where the 13@rts Ayeeda Ink - Brown came into the colour scheme. And the brown also featured in the stamping of the background.

Have you seen the  Tekturka Chipboard "Color Basic-Words" by Olga Heldwein in store? Arent the perfect, especially when you mist it with the 13@rts Ayeeda Mist - Chalk Brown

Now its all about adding the photo and some layers  and then you have your layout.

So I hope I have inspired you this month, and dont forget to tune in next month for my final post as Guest Designer :(  to see what I create with the cut out.

Till next time, have a creative day.

Tomorrows Memories - Kasiercraft All That Glitters

Sometimes  its the simplest thing, that makes you happy, for me this is that photo!!! Taken on my oldest graduation day, after the event. All I wanted was a nice photo with his sister, and I got it. 

Now became the problem of how to show case it, show it off, it needed to be perfect, right?

The solution for this problem is with Kasiercraft - All that Glitters range. I love the gold foil so I wanted to add that hint of gold through the background piece, with a little gold mist and yes going over the yellow dots that was achieved. 

So if you just love some gold in your life, why dont you pop into the store and grab some today!!!

Till next time, have a creative day.

Your Creative Wings

Good Morning. I am sharing with you my new favourite thing !!! I am addicted to doing canvases!!! What better way to show case your photos and your love of chipboard with a piece of art for your wall.

I love the YCW Chipboard Christmas Frills set, it has so many pieces to play with which you can cut up to work with your canvas size. 

Dont forget to grab the YCW Mason Jars - Christmas chipboard they are perfect for little accents and details for your larger flower clusters.

I love layering my chipboard, the YCW Ornate Frame 1 is a perfect base for that.

My all time go to YCW Chipboard piece is the Chain lengths , they help draw your eye around to details that you want to show off and help tie everything together.

So I hope this has inspired you to get creative with some canvas work.
