Vintage signs

Today I am showing a hand made vintage sign for the online magazine, The papercrafting. Interior decor/ home deco is one of the trends that has been in the crafting community for a long time. Vintage signs has been popular for a long time, but now we often see them with a bit of humor. When I looked for a quote to have on my sign, I found the simple sign quote "If your are looking for s sign, this is it". I decided to go for that for my first sign.

The sign is 15cm x 14cm. The sign has been created by gluing together some wooden pieces, sanding it down and painting it black.

Then I created the text as a stencil. I used Silhouette studio to design the stencil, and cut it out with a Silhouette.

At the edges, I have used paperstrips from Kaisercraft's Glisten collection. The paper has been added with gel medium. When the gel medium had dried, I sanded the edges to wear it down a bit.

All you need to do is fly

Kaisercraft's new Ubud dreams collection, is a fantastic sweet collection. The colours are fantastic. For this layered mixed media layout, I have used lots of diecuts. 

I have used Kaisermist on the background paper, before I layered the layout. There is also cheesecloth between the layers and lots of wooden flourishes.

A doll with a paper dress - Created for LDRS for CHA - winter 2017

 I decided to show something different for CHA for LDRS creative. I wanted to show some of the embossing folders, together with dies. For the white layers of the dress, I used the Timeless embossing folders and the new Picnic Quilt Embossing folder, to emboss white card stock. This created a nice texture for the white parts of the dress. 

All the flowers are hand made, and the dragonflies, created with together with the Key Tailed Dragonfly Die Set, are featured in between the flowers. I also created small gears with the same die set, and added the gears between the flowers. The paper ribbon, has been created with The Basic Cutting Edge Border and the Fancy Rectangles die set

The paper lace, created with  the Basic Cutting Edge Border for edge of the white dress.  

I also added some hand made roses to the hair of the doll. 

The base for the doll, is hand made. I have used the new stamp "Time For A Cuppa" from the Candi Bean collection, under the base.  

The paper collection used for this dress, is Lemoncraft's - Gossamer Blue.

Mixed media on Styrofoam?

A few weeks ago, a few of us at Hobbykunst was discussing the idea of creating some mixed media on a styrofoam medallion. This had to be tested, and here is the result. 

The styrofoam medallion was mounted on a wooden stick. The wooden stick was then mounted on a wooden spool.

I used old jewelry parts, metal pieces, beads, metal from Finnabair, and different kind of bling. I used Liquitex heavy gel as glue and let it dry over night.

The medallion was painted black. When the paint had dried, it was painted with white acrylic paint, cobber, and different blue Finnabair paints and different mists. Then I added flowers. 

In between the flowers and the mixed media, I mounted a wooden flamingo and a little wooden palm. These are from one of Rayher new wooden sets.

The other side has been decorated in a similar but different way.

The word "Sweet" and "Smile" is from a new wooden text set from Rayher.

Cards with Cherry Tree Lane Collection

Kaisercraft's new collection Cherry Tree Lane, is fantastic for those vintage cards. For these cards I have used Specialty paper Perforated letters (PS476).

There are five cards in total, using the coloured images from the paper as the focal point and the cards, and the other images as layers under this image. 

You can get more inspiration for using this collection over in Kaisercraft's blog.

Mixed media layout with the Cherry Tree Lane collection

Kaisercraft is out with a super new collection, the Cherry Tree Lane. I have created a mixed media layout with papers from the collection. 

The layout has been created, using lots of layers and 3D tape between the layers to build it up and show the dimensions.

I have used stamps on the background, to create some pattern.  I have also used the template together with rust paste. The dimentional layers can be shown under the "Remember this" quote.

I have also used one of the texts from one of Kaisercraft's sticker sheets, to create some text on the background.

A lot of my layouts are very dimensional, and are therefore mounted in frames or on a canvas. This layout has been mounted on a canvas, that has been mounted in a frame.

Happiness is a Perfect day - A House box

I got inspired by all the doors in this collection, and created a box that looks like a little house. I have used the Ubud Dreams collection together with a designer template to create some extra texture to the little house.

The house box, is built as a simple box, with a roof on the lid.

I have used a stencil with gesso in a few places, to create texture on the walls.

I have also added some moss paint and flowers.

I have added the door and some windows from one of the papers in the collection (Mantra).

I have also added collectables from the collections.

Mixed media with chalk, rust and concrete paste

Hobbykunst has got some really sweet frames in MDF. This is one of the frames, decorated with chalk paint and concrete, together with a hint of rust. 

The frame was first painted in light blue chalk paint. Then I added concrete paste. This paste is soft to work with, as thick paint, and easy to spread with a sponge or paintbrush. When the concrete paste dries, it hardens, and it is good for adding other paints, mists or mixed media layers on the top. 

The background inside the frame, is a patterned paper from 
Prima's collection "French Riviera" -  Journees De Reves et Aventures. This collection is a collection I have used a lot. This was my last paper from all the piles of paper from this collection. 

I have created the mixed media picture in layers. I have used Kaisermists on the background paper, and stamped onto the misted paper with background word stamp from Kaisercraft and a ruler stamp from Technique Tuesday - Measure Up. I used Archival ink for the stamping, as it is not water soluble. 

Then I have added layers with micro beads, metal, computer parts, painted with rust and copper paint. There are also some copper buttons mixed with Prima and Mathia flowers. 

Materials used:

Fotoramme - størrelse 17x13x1.5cm Prima: Journees De Reves et Aventures - French Riviera Chalky Finish - blue grey Kreativ Betong Paste, sett
