Wanderlust - Kaisercraft

Hi everyone
today I am showcasing another collection for Kaisercraft


"Wanderlust" this collection is fabulous for all
your travel memories. I created a layout, card and a Mini Travel Album.
The Mini Album is an ongoing project
show casing my latest travel adventures to Italy and France.




 

and the mini album - THE FRONT COVER OF MINI ALBUM



inside cover lined with papers and collectables


some of my pages, there are too many to show, so I selected some.









Only if you are interested, here are some more photos of Venice…
one of my fav places and also close to my heart!



back lanes in Venice

Gondola Ride 

in  St Mark Square :)



My mini album is a work in progress, I am
still adding more to it each week.
Once a week I spend about a little bit of time added
more details and photos to this album. I am nearly finished.
It is a great idea, as it keeps a record of all the amazing
things that you see on your travels.
I asked my daughter to write a few details on those captured moments cards, the ones 
that you place inside the sleeves of this album,
 it is her prospective on her adventures.
It's a great idea to look back on them and remember the
wonderful places you visited. 

Until next time, 
Cheers xx :) Adriana

"Miss Lovely" canvas for Couture Creations


Hi there everyone, Adriana here today and I am sharing 
a special project I created for Couture Creations

Using the brand new release diecut collection from Couture Creations
called
"Everyday Essentials
and the only two dies I used for my Miss Lovely canvas is
the "AUTUMN LEAF"   C0724112
and flower die called  "DAISY FLOWER"  C0724131


Here is my canvas.... introducing ...."Miss Lovely"
Inspired by all the wonderful face/head projects which
are very popular at the moment.

She is so easy to create, I have a step by step tutorial
on how I created this canvas, using all the wonderful
papers, diecuts and embellishments from Couture Creations.


1. Using the Vintage Rose - Couture Creations unique papers, cut several
different squares and rectangles. Apply a medium gel to adhere these
papers to a canvas, leave to completely dry.







2. Apply white gesso over the entire canvas covered papers, leave to dry.







3. Cut an oval face shape and neck, as shown in photograph below.




4. Using different coloured inkpads and Couture Creations Sponge Dabbers 

colour in your face features, outlining eyes and mouth with a fine
tipped pen.






5. When you are happy with your face, adhere your face 
and neck on to the dry canvas. I slightly tilted her head to one side.




6. With Brown coloured card stock, cut some oval shaped pieces for the hair. I added
and layered a few off cuts on top of brown cardstock, 
to give a bit of texture to her hair.




Cut approx. 8 to 10 "AUTUMN LEAF" C0724112 die-cuts with the
Vintage Rose papers, also cut 2 "Daisy Flower" C0724131.
Adhere and layer with other small flowers on top of your ladies head.
Cut some butterflies from Vintage Rose papers, adhere and apply some
Glitzing Glitter to wings.



7. Add some Gemstones 
 to the neck - to create a necklace and 
around the flower head piece.





8. Stamp a sentiment on the bottom of the canvas.





9. Finish your canvas with some ink and stamps around the
edges of your canvas.

Miss Lovely - saying - Have a lovely day!!!





Thanks for looking, 'til next time. 
Cheers  ADRIANA  XX

Betsy's Couture Collection

Hi everyone…it's a new month and
another paper collection for Kaisercraft


"Betsy's Couture" this collection is wonderful collection for
vintage and old world charm projects.
I created some cards - a gentleman card and a female card
 and also created a layout with this collection.
I used water-colour pencils to colour in the image
and added paper ruffles at the bottom of the card.





I randomly embossed some gold embossing around the
edges of each card to give a old world charm.




This was an amazing place with the lean tower and
other old buildings. The paper has a very florentine finish
to the them. They reminded me of a book I purchased in
Florence with the paper cover. 

PISA Layout 

Handmade some flowers, with the papers too.




Until next time, have a great day :)
Cheers xx :) Adriana
