Wooden't It Be Lovely?
Have you seen the little trays
of wooden embellishments
by Kaisercraft? I'm rather
taken by the trays but keep
wondering whatever would I do
with the contents ...............
.............Enter The Craft Barn
Design Team ............... first off
here's Craftyfield with a tag:
"I hate thowing away any of my supplies
and since I have full sheets of the
wonderful Imagination Crafts Rice papers
(have you seen the full range available
at the Craft Barn?) I decided to use up
the left overs from other projects
in this one tag.
They don't match but no worries,
that's where sprays come in!
I selected these pieces which I then
glued on my gessoed tag with
I'm trying out my composition...
I added a bit of metallic shine with
Imagination Crafts Starlight paint
in Mint and a stencil.
Whilst I had the paint out I used it to
colour match a piece of card.
I also added the paint sparingly
around the tag.
Now onto sprays to give the various papers
a cohesive look.
On the right these are 2 of the new colours
and on the left one of the first released colour.
For those who are familiar with the
older Prima Bloom sprays, the new ones
present several differences:
the bottle does not come ready mixed with water,
the clear packaging has disappeared
the spray mechanism is different.
It's too early for me to give a definite
review of the new spray bottles but at
first sight they are as good as the previous ones,
which, in my opinion, were fantastic.
The spray is much finer and so doesn't
make the paper so wet as to warp as much.
I used a brush to paint my embellishments,
wooden flourishes from Kaisercrafts, Life's a beach
also with the Color Bloom sprays
I kept two of the embellishments bare and
matted on a roughly gessoed square of
kraft cardstock. To knock back the white,
I used Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans."
Thank you Craftyfield - that is a
Such a clever idea to use all
those bits we seem to
accumulate because they are
too nice to throw away......
.....actually, they are aren't they?!!
