Sea Breeze - Let your dreams set sail.

Hello everyone. Today I am working with the beautiful new Sea Breeze Collection Pack as a Guest Designer for Couture Creations, Ultimate Crafts & Craft Concepts . I've created a page mixing and matching the papers, together with the sticker sheet, netting and some muslin.

I have cut the frame away from, 'A day Fishing' and have
used it to frame 'The Sea Breeze' paper instead.
I have inked the edges of 'The Sea Breeze' piece with Bundled Sage
before attaching it to the new frame which gives some depth. 
Draping some dyed muslin under the netting gives you another layer.
Add the banner from 'Navigating at Sea' with a few trims and muslin also.
Select the images from the 'Navigating at Sea' paper and the sticker sheet
that best suit your layout. Fussy cut, ink, distress then layer around your photo. 

I have used the large frame from the 'Beauty' sheet as the border for
my photo as it also ties in with the 12x12 border frame.
Loosen your netting and tuck some more muslin to add more layers.

Thank you for looking!

Heart and Soul

I have dinted my pile of 7 dots Nature Walk yet again but just had to make this new card. I have used the word stickers from the Cold Country range, with the saying "You are my heart, you are my soul". It is mothers day here in Australia and this card I have dedicated to my Mum. She is flying with the Angels and will never see this card, so this one is for me to hold onto - heart and soul. K x

Serendipity with 'Imagination'

Hello and Thankyou for visiting my blog today.
I would like to share with you a card I have made using the new Blue Fern, Serendipity range. The sheet I have used is called 'Imagination'.
The chipboard is from Dusty Attic, Spring Blooms #1 and Foliage #2.
I have coordinated with laces and flowers, inks and gesso and a beautiful die from Tonic Studios, the Royal Frame & Butterfly Insert Set. K x

Layering torn vellum between a few of the layers adds a soft effect. It's light so it's not weighing        the card down as well.

Layers of lightweight laces and trims to coordinate. The teal blue scallop was my daughters shirt recycled.

A layer of gesso - dry it - then inked with mustard seed, wild honey, hickory smoke and rusty hinge and sponged with dimensional magic.
