Dream Big! – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another The Wild Hare Kits layout with you and this time again with a process video.

For this layout I´ve used the November monthly cut file which is a leaf pattern. I´ve arranged it onto a piece of white cardstock into a wreath form and the cut it with my Silhouette Cameo.

So I used both the positive and the negative pieces of the cut file image and the paper. I left the negative background piece white and added spray ink splatters here and there for interest and the leaves got a spray ink treatment in the same colours. Then I arranged the inked leaves onto the background piece and decorated everything with sequins and 1canoe2 Willow collection die cut shapes.

The paper on the background is by Pink Paislee, form their Again and Again collection (paper No. 6). For finishing touches I´ve added lots of Spiegelmom scraps sequins – the Wild Hare Kit exclusive ones that came with my kit. Also the title is created using the Puffy Alpha Stickers by American Crafts. These alphas also came in my kit.

So the only thing I´ve used outside from my kit were the spray inks and the white cardstock. Everyting else was included in my kit. And this time I´ve recorded a process video for you to watch too. Hope you like it!

I hope you get inspired by this layout idea and scrap a little yourself! If you are interested in trying the Wild Hare Kits, just hop over here and fill your personal style profile. And once you get your kit, do tag us and use #thewildharekits, so we can find you and come and admire your projects!

See you soon with another project!

Bad Taste Party layout and video – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone, it´s time for another The Wild Hare Kits layout share again. This layout is also created using the August Deluxe Kit (see my unboxing video here). For this page I chose two photos that are exactly the same, but printed out in different sizes. I find that repeating the same photo, even in various sizes  adds fun interest to a layout.

For my layout this time around I´ve used plenty of misting on the background, accompanied with stenciling and stamping and the main decorational elements mainly consist of the Carta Bella Flower Market Ephemera that came with my kit.

I´ve recorded a process video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each and every step. Hope you enjoy it!

Here are the steps:

Step 1: I took a sheet of  white 12×12 cardstock and  first arranged the Flower Market ephemera onto the page with the photos. Then I took a photo of the arrangement with my mobile phone.

Step 2: I then took yellow and aquamarine spray ink and very randomly misted the background with it. I let the background dry until moving over to the next step. After that I added some stenciling with the Echo Park Epic Triangles Stencil and Hero Arts Shadow Ink Soft Grey on top of the misted areas.

Step 3: Next I adhered my pre-arranged photos and papers onto the page according to my mobile photo „sketch“ from previously. I also had filled in the August cut file with red and green Pink Fresh Studio 6×6 papers that were in my kit. I basically just cut the paper in right size and adhered those pieces onto the sun rays. For the center I fussy cut an embroidery hoop from the Flower Market Collection paper and adhered it on place.

Step 4: For decorational elements I used the Flower Market Beauty All Around stamp set to add small words and hearts here and there. I then colored the hearts with a peach toned marker.

Step 5: For finishing touches I added some of the lovely Bramble Fox Petite Perspextives acrylic stars. I really love using them so much!

Here are a few detail photos of the layout too. I hope you have enjoyed this layout tutorial and get inspired to play with the Wild Hare Kits yourself. We would love to see what you make, so remember to use  #thewildharekits on social media when sharing your work!

I´ll be sharing more Wild Hare Kits projects here on the 29th of August. Be sure to come back for that one, because we are scraplifting our fellow design team members and this month our inspiration comes from Rachel Talmann. Cannot wait to share!!!

Happy scrapping,

Art journal page

Hi there everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I´m stopping by to share an art journal page with you. Just some random play I had in my art journal the other day. Recently I am really enjoying this type of play time alot.

Here is what I created:

I wanted to use the misted masking tapes on this page, so I added them on top of everything else and added the journaling onto them. Apart from that I´ve first covered the page with a piece of tissue paper magazine transfer in green, then layered fussy cut magazine parts (leaves) on top, added some stamping.

Stamps by Viva Las Vega Stamps and details with Posca pens. Just a page that was a result of a quick playtime. It feels so good to create these pages into my art journal lately. Just putting down bits and pieces and not giving it all too much thought. And yet every page that comes out in the process, kind of represents something that has been going thru my mind recently. Have you tried this type of art journaling recently?

Happy crafting,

Artist Trading Coin set

Hello and happy Sunday!! It´s again time to share the STAMPlorations Mixed Media challenge reveal projects with you. I created a set of artist trading coins again. Today´s coins feature flowers – I used the Maggie Holmes Flourish paper as my focal point on the coins. It was one of the papers that came with my The Wild Hare Kits January GDT kit. Still got some papers left from the kit :).

Here are the coins I created:

I´ve first die cut the coins with a Tonic Studios circle die, then wiped some of my Glass Bead and Glitter Gel that was mixed together with Mirroball Nuvo Glitter (residue paste from a previous project) and applied onto the background thru my stencil line stencil „Barley“.

Next I´ve misted the coins with Tattered Angels Verdigris Glimmer Mist – I adore this color! And then I´ve just added some adhesive ribbon (very old stash), some glass drops, some fussy cut roses from the previously mentioned Maggie Holmes paper line. For decoration I also added some older stickers and some fussy cut sentiment bits from Crate Paper „Here+There“ collection – also leftover bits from The Wild Hare Kits January GDT kit.

Here is a close-up of one of the coins. I also sneaked in some Nuvo Drops alongside the ribbon. You can see those better in this photo.

Really like how these coins turned out!!! Now it´s again your turn to play along – hop over to the STAMPlorations blog to take a look what my design team colleagues created for this challenge and then submit your project. Remember to play by the rules (they are noted at the blog in the rules section). Cannot wait to see what you come up with for April´s challenge!! See you at STAMPlorations blog!

Misted Mixed Media Tag – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! I´m up with another Mixed Media project share and tutorial over at the STAMPlorations blog today. For today´s post, I wanted to create a colorful mixed media tag.

Here is what I created:

And here is how I went upon creating this tag:  I have a book af cheap watercolor papers that have a coloring image on them. I went and die cut the Stitched Nesting Tag with my die cutting machine from that paper pad. The image just adds to the layers of my tag, I don´t mind it being there at all.Next I took the Heartfelt Hibiscus stamp image and using an embossing ink pad, stamped the image onto the background quite randomly. I only left some space at the very top for the Trendy Birds 2 clear stamp images. Those are also embossed with white embossing ink, like the flower images. I heat set the embossing powder with my heat tool.After that I took a set of spray inks and applied them onto the background. In between colours I used my heat tool to dry the particular spray ink layer abit, before adding the next one. I love the gorgeous shine the spray inks add to the background. Now you can also see the random flower pattern and the birds thru the misting. I repeated the same steps like above on the single bird image, this time using black spray ink. After the spray ink was dry, I fussy cut the image.Then I took a residue piece of white cardstock (I always save small pieces of paper for purposes like this) and stamped words from the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set onto the paper. I also applied a rub-on onto the paper and then inked the background green with spray ink. Next I fussy cut every piece.I then adhered all the fussy cut pieces on place and decorated the background with Nuvo Confetti (this adds an additional sparckle).For additonal detail I added some Nuvo Mousse thru the „Rag Rug“ stencil with a palette knife here and there on the tag background. This adds an additional layer of texture and interest.For finishing touches I added some Nuvo Drops here and there and some ribbons.Here are some detail photos of the tag.

I hope you get inspired to play with stencils yourself and create a mixed media project of your own! When you do, remember to submit your project to the Mixed Media Challenge!

Also I am again adding my discount code for you to use. When you add „STAMPGIRLSANNA“ upon checkout at the STAMPlorations store, you will get 20% off your order! Happy shopping &
