2 Tag/cards for The Scrapbook Boutique

Good morning, I am up on the Scrapbook Boutique Blog today to share with you two tags made from the Kaisercraft Cherry Tree Lane Collection.   I will back these tags with cardstock and create cards out of them.
I went for a his and her them :)













I created this tag using a Kaisercraft stencil and modelling page.  On top of this I glued random pieces of paper from the small paper pad of the Cherry Tree Lane Collection and a doily cut in half.

I then covered the whole tag with clear gesso

I used white embossing powder and the Kaisercraft stamp from the Cherry Tree Lane Collection randomly on the tag.

Some splatters of Peeled Paint Distress Paint and watered down gesso before layering the tag with the die cuts and stickers from the collection.

Final touches with crystal glass beads, blush micro beads, glitter and a ribbon died in the peeled paint and the tag was complete.

Here are a couple of close ups:






Tag 2




For this tag I started by covering the entire tag with ripped up bits of paper from the collection.  I then added a Kaisercraft stencil and 3D Gloss gell.  Once dried I covered the whole tag in Black gesso,

Using the Finnabair Metallique Steampunk Copper Acrylic paint with my finger I applied in random areas of the tag.

Keeping it relatively simple, I used some Prima white wire behind the die cut and attached with dimensional magic.

Final touches with glass beads in Zinc, Butter and Crystal and Micro beads in Bronze and Copper.

Here are some close ups:







Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to get out some mixed media products and have fun.

Til next time - Happy crafting

**** NEW DESIGN TEAM****** Memory Maze Chipboard - 12 x 12 Project

Hi,  I am SUPER excited to be announce that I am now part of the Memory Maze Design team and for my first project I have created a 12 x 12 board to hang in my craft room.






I had my husband cut a piece of mdf 12x12 - I was going to apply alot of mixed media and hang it on the wall so I wanted something sturdy.








I began by randomly applying torn up dictionary paper, book paper, and wrapping paper.  I covered this with heavy white gesso, wiping back areas so the papers still peeked through.

On top of this I then applied white crackle  paste.



Once the crackle paste was dry I covered it with acrylic paint - I  used Cobalt Turquois Fluid Acrylic from Golden Paints.  Quickly before it dries I wiped and rubbed so all I was left with was the colour in the crackle and bumps.   I then also applied some Bone Black Fluid acrylic randomly on the crackles and wiped away.



I have painted all the chipboard pieces with white gesso.  I used the crackle paste on the centre of the doily and embossed the edges with White Embossing Powder and then a sparkle embossing powder on the top.



I paint the small wrought iron flourishes with white paint


The butterflies I painted with the Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint - Cobalt Turquois




The black chipboard in the photo is the centres on the circles on circles chipboard.  I embossed them used Stampendous Aged Black Embossing Enamel




The Crackle on the chipboard tag was created by painting the Cobalt Turguois on the chipboard.  Once dry I covered it with Deco Art Crackling Medium and set that aside to dry.  Once dry I painted the tag with White Paint and left the crackling medium do its job.





The chipboard title - Love - was covered with the Aged Black Embossing Enamel.

Here are some more close ups:





Thanks for stopping by and I cant wait to create another project for you all.
