Be Yourself ......Gypsy Rose from Kaisercraft
Hi There Crafters
Anita here with you today and just for a change, instead of working with some of the newest additions to the shop, I thought I would break out an older release which is really beautiful. I wanted to scrap these 2 photos of my youngest daughter after she had been playing with some Snapchat filters. This layout has been inspired by the beautiful work of Kylie Kingham who is on the DT for Kaisercraft.
Kaisercraft have 2 releases of fabulous papers at the very beginning of every month, all great quality, double sided and designed to compliment each other perfectly. The collection I am working with is Gypsy Rose and is a lovely mix of dream-catchers, beautiful blooms and varying shades of burgundy, green and pinks.
I backed the layout on a sheet of deep burgundy cardstock and stuck a 5" x 12" strip of the green polka dot paper Wandering across the top of the page. I also fussy cut a large and small Dream-catcher from the reverse side of the sheet
I then took sheet of Free Spirit and fussy cut the extra large Dreamcatcher, which I put to one side for another layout I had planned. The remainder of the sheet is a shabby chic wood effect and I cut this into 6 strips that were 7" x 2". I distressed all round each strip with an old dark brown ink pad and roughed the edges with the edge of a scissor blade before laying them side by side across the bottom of the layout to create wooden panels
The rest of the page was created by fussy cutting lots of flower clusters from the sheet of Inspiring and also picking some of the sayings and cutting them out from the sheet of Original ( there is a great selection to choose from).
I also die cut some leafy fronds from green cardstock and tucked in behind the edges of some of the bloom clusters
After adding the 2 dream catchers that I had cut from the sheet of Wandering, I added some flat backed pearls and crystals to them and also scattered a few across the page in different places to complete the page.
I have really enjoyed using these papers, the colour way and the prints are beautiful and easy to use. There are lots of gorgeous collections available throughout the shop here for you to have a good look through.
I will be back again at a later date with another layout, using mainly cardstock ( most unusual for me!!) and the left over pieces from the sheets I used today.
Have a great weekend, hope some of it is filled with crafting of somekind!
