Hand made soaps

Hobbykunst has got some fantastic new products for creating soap. You can find soap base in 200 and 600gsoap pigmentsSoap molds og different soap smells. These soaps are fantastic gifts, if you wrap them nicely. They are also a good idea for craft fairs.

The wrapping, has been created with a cellophane bag. The bag has been cut open at the bottom and back and taped at the back to make it fit the two saps. It has also been taped at the vottom to close it. Around the soaps, I have used corrugated cardboard around the large soap, a lace and a ribbon.

The top has been created using Kaisercraft's Keepers Finders kolleksjon and an edge die from Rayher.

Mixed media canvas

Art is often expensive to do. The paint, glue, pencils, mists, paints and embellishments, are often a huge cost. A few weeks ago, I got a craft magazine with some free emellishment pack. This had a few thin wooden pieces. I decided to a few mixed media pieces, out of the free wooden pieces. I then decided to only use left overs, from my craft room, to see what I could create without using a lof of money. Note: You do need good quality glue, paint, mists and paintbrushes. Do not save money on this.

I added string around the wooden piece. Then I glued on beads, metal and flowers. Then, the wooden piece was spray painted black.

Then, I added Kaisermists in blue colours. After this had dried, I dry brushed with Finnabairs Art Alchemy acrylic paints - Sparks, Magical Pond and Metallique Emerald Green. I also added sprays of 13 arts golden mist.

Long Beach - Layout created for Kaisercraft for CHA 2017

This is one of my 7 layouts shown at CHA - spring 2017. The photo is of Long Beach, (taken from Queen Mary), US.


Photo 20cm x 7cm (7 7/8” x 2 ¾”)

Start with the background paper SHIBORI. Make sure the stripes go sideways. Work on the top middle of the page. Stamp with the Background script and texture chevron stamp on the top half of the page. The stamping should just about be shown under the overlaying papers. 

Cut out a strip of 30cm x 12cm ( 12” x 4 ¾”) from the STORM paper. Add this to the top, middle of the page, sideways – from edge to edge of the paper. Glue with 3D tape or use cardboard in between the layers to create depth. Add the white Chevrons, using the Designer template and gesso.

Cut out strips from the INDIGO SKIES paper pad. Add strips of papers to the top and bottom and top of the STORM strip, add them slightly to the side of the center. Adding them in several layers. Cut strips of lace, and add this in between the layers of paper strips. 

Cut a few rectangles of paper from the INDIGO SKIES paper pad, different sizes. Add the rectangles behind the photo, using 3D tape. Add the photo with the rectangles to the background. Add boarders from the INDIGO SKIES paper pad to the bottom of the photo. Take a clock out of the INDIGO SKIES collectables. Cut it in two and add the two parts under the STORM paper.

Cut the Love quote from the BLUE MOON paper. Add a frame around the back of the quote with left over paper from the STORM paper. Add the quote to the left, bottom of the photo. Tuck a banner from the BLUE MOON collectables, under the quote. 

Cover the photo, and splat gently with the white Kaisermist over the page, using the inside spray end of the bottle. Stamp with one of the texture butterfly stamps, from the bottom left side to the top. Fussy cut butterflies from the BLUE Moon paper pad and CHAMBRAY paper. Add the butterflies to the page.

Creating shaped card with layers of dies

Have you ever looked at those shaped cards, and thought - I wish I had the right dies to create them? You can be creative with the dies you have got, and create shaped cards, just by layering the diecuts from dies you already have.

This card has been created with layers, upon layers with diecuts with the Fancy Rectangles and layers dies. In between the layers, I have used lace, tags created with the same die set and a die cut of a clock, created with the Timeless Pocket watch die.

The white cardtock at the front, has also got some pattern, created with the Picnic Quilt Embossing Folders set. 
The stamp is the sweet Handpicked for Hedgy.

Adventure is out there

A few years ago, I went to New York. I had to take one of the classic photos of the taxies on Broadway. This is one of my favourite photos.

The background has got fine mist with black and orange Kaisermist. Then, I have layered it with strips of paper and tape. I have also used orange gears, crated with Kaisercraft dies.

Summer layout in layers

Alexandra Renke has got a super sweet new paper collection otu in the shops. I have tested it out on a layout, created in dimentional layers. 

The pattern on the paper is plants, flowers, mushrooms and different nature creatures - painted in watercolours. Projects with these papers could be delicate and super sweet.  

In this layout, the mushroom paper, has been used as a background. The grss, moss, leaves and flowers . has been fussy cut from the papers, and added in layers with 3D foam tape. 

The girl, has been fussy cut and glued on with 3D foam tape, to fit into the landscape. The word "summer fun" has been created with dies from Kaisercraft (DD748 Decorative Die Summer Words).

Some sewing thread, has been used under the layers of grass, to create effect.

Altered birdhouse with Kaisercraft's High tea collection

 Today, I am showing a spring project with the High Tea collection in Kaisercraft's blog. This is an altered wooden house and a candle stick, I had stored for some time. I have used the blue and white papers from the collection, together with collectables and wooden embellishments.

The bird house, has been covered with paper, and then decorated.

I used a stencil with gesso, to create some texture on the roof. Then I added strips of paper and collectables.

At the front of the house, I have added parts of a wooden embellishment, and layered it with a lace circle from the collectables. The candle stick has got a slight colour wash with light blue chalk paint.

Part of the paper has a "ripped wallpaper effect". I enhanced this effect, with pieces of torn paper.

All you have to do is fly - a layout shown at CHA 2017

 Today, I am showing a layout created with the Indigo Skies collection for Kaisercraft's stand at CHA - 2017. 

The photo, was taken in Port Douglas, in Australia, 10 years ago.

The layout is full of butterflies, colours created with Kaisermists and quotes.


Photo: 12,5cm x 8cm (4 15/16” x 3 1/8”).

Start with the background paper. Spray water onto the paper. Spray the mists onto cling film. Tab the cling film onto the background paper in the middle, the bottom left side corner and top left side corner. If the colours are strong, spray on some water. Let dry. Iron the page, to make it flat again. Stamp over the background with the Texture diamond stamp, in places.

Cut strips of paper from the INDIGO SKIES paper pad. Also, cut of the bottom strips of the page MISTY (reverse). Add the strips of paper to the middle, right side of the page. 

Cut two rectangles, 9cm x 8cm, from the denim paper in the INDIGO SKIES paper pad. Layer the rectangles and glue them to the photo, using 3D tape for depth. Add the photo, with the rectangles to the background.

Cut the “Your wings” quote from the BLUE MOON paper. Glue this to the top of the “Right Now” banner from the INDIGO SKIES collectables, using 3D tape for depth. Glue these to the top left hand side of the page.

Fussy cut butterflies from the CHAMBRAY paper and the butterfly paper in the INSIGO SKIES paper pad. Add them to the page. Add pearls.

Use the text on the boarder from the WASHED OUT paper (reverced), and add this to the layout.

What does the fox say? Cards with new motives from Alexandra Renke

Hobbykunst has got a fantastic sweet paper collection from Alexandra Renke. One of the papers is with some foxes, painted in watercolour. The paper has 36 motives on one sheet of paper. 

I created six card in the same style. The motives are so sweet, but I wanted to create card suitable for different age groups. The background paper is one sheet of paper from Kaisercraft. I have also used die cuts, pieces of lace, wooden embellishments and sticker words from TIm Holtz. Some of the background has got some effects created with background stamps, stencils nd ink. 

The different cards:

Decorating the back of the cards?

I mostly decorate the back of the cards very simple. To me, the cards seems unfished without something at the back. Here, I have used left over from the background paper at the front. I have used a "created by" digital stamp and a small mouse from one of Alexandra Renke's papers.
