Kaisercraft DT - Antique Bazaar Collection

 Hi Everyone,
Today I am sharing my Design Team projects created with Kaisercraft's beautiful new vintage inspired range called "Antique Bazaar".

“Learn, Live, Hope” Layout
A great way to get more bang for your buck with your Speciality Papers is to cut them into smaller sections.  This way you get to use them on more than 1 layout.  On this page, I decided to cut down and use a portion of the "Bronze" Speciality Paper to tie in with the circular image on the background paper.  The new "Cogs" Decorative Die works perfectly with the vintage clock theme in this range.  To add a touch of colour I applied Turquoise Kaisermist with a brush to my background and subdued the colour by spraying with water to create a soft watercolour effect.

Other Product:  metal charms, inks

 “1949” Layout
This beautiful range of papers cries out for a vintage photo, so I went through my little stash of pics, which belonged to my mother and came across this photo is of my mum and her friends on holiday camp in the French countryside.  I think she is about 13 here (far left). 

To soften up my background and create a bit of texture I used the damask embossing folder, which I placed under my paper in random spots, then sanded over the top of the pp to create a distressed damask image.  Sanding the pp lifts the colour from the paper to leave a creamy white image.

“Time” Mixed Media Journal Page
Kaisercraft have released 4 new fabulous Quarters Templates which are great value, as you get 4 different 6x6" templates for around $7.95.  On my mixed media journal page I used the gorgeous Damask Quarters with some Ferro Paste, which has a lovely sandy texture.  The misted background was created by applying gesso to my page, then applying random sprays of the new Turquoise Kaisermist with a few random splats of the Antique Gold Kaisermist, then spraying with water and moving the page around to create a watercolour effect and some drips.
Use your leftover scraps to create a journal page.

“Time” Altered Tag

To create this tag I used the paper pad and matching collectables.  The paper pad comes with some beautiful gloss papers as well as 4 pages of diecuts.  I used one of the gloss papers as the background for my tag, and used the Kaisercraft black ink pad to highlight the beautiful damask gloss pattern, which acts as a resist.
