January Creations and Tutorial - Kaisercraft

Hi Everyone,
Today I have my projects created with the Kaisercraft new release "True Love" and "#Me" Collections as well as a Step by Step Tutorial on a misting technique with glad wrap using some of the gorgeous newly released Kaisermist colours.

First up I have my creations using the beautiful "True Love" Collection, which has a romantic theme with soft and pretty watercolour florals, lacey hearts and a lovely array of quotes for that someone special in your life.  I have also used this collection for my step by step misting tutorial.

Cling Wrap Mist Tutorial

“Be Happy Be Bright Be You”
For my tutorial I thought I would share a simple but very effective technique using glad wrap and some of the newly released Kaisermists.  All you need are a few mists, in various colours that complement each other, a piece of cardstock/pp, gesso, and glad wrap.  I have used the new Candy and White Kaisermists, along with the Red, Peach and Pink from the previous release.
To start, coat your background cardstock/pp with gesso.  The gesso stops the mist from absorbing straight into the paper.  I have used white cardstock, so that the marbling effect of the misting technique really pops.  If you  are going to use patterned paper, it looks better if you choose a pale coloured pp with a very subtle pattern to it.  I find the heavier weight of cardstock works better.  
Dry off thoroughly with a heat gun, then mist generously with your lightest colour first, through to your darkest colour.  
Tear a piece of glad wrap with about 45cm long, then apply over your misted area, crumpling the glad wrap as you go.  This will need to dry overnight or a couple of hours outside in the sunlight.  
Once dry, just peel away the glad wrap and you have a gorgeous marble-toned background!!
Cut off the diagonal strip from the reverse side of the "My Baby" pp and tear diagonally down to form a large corner piece, then cut and tear another smaller corner piece.  Tear strips from the "My Precious" pp to fit under the corner pieces and adhere.  Tear lengths of mint glitter tape and affix to corners, then using the hessian texture stamp and lagoon ink pad stamp randomly around the edges.

Fussy cut the flowers and leaves from the reverse side of "My Soulmate" pp.
Affix the large torn corner section to the right-hand side of your background and the smaller torn corner to the bottom left side of your background.
Diecut a section from the Butterfly Cardfront Decorative Die from the green "My Baby" pp so that you have 3 butterflies.  Coat with PVA glue and sprinkle with glitter.  Diecut the Be Happy Decorative Die from the peach side of the "My Love" pp.
Adhere your photo, then arrange and adhere the fussy cut pieces, butterflies, rhinestone flourishes around the left-hand side of your photo.  Top your butterflies with fern sparklets and randomly adhere sequins and beads around your flower cluster.  Finish off by adding the heart collectables with sticker phrases on the bottom right of your photo and adhering your diecut Be Happy title.

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial.  There are endless colour variations you can try with this technique to match your pp's and this would make a fabulous background for cards as well.

“So Many Beautiful Moments”
This layout was created using the gorgeous Specialty Diecut Paper and Collectables.
The background was created by diecutting the Lattice C6 Decorative Die to use as a mask, with extra light modelling paste.  Once dry I outlined with a black fineliner pen, then randomly flicked with Apple and Lime Kaisermist over the masked area.

“You are Truly Fabulous"
How gorgeous is the new release Vintage Keys Decorative Die!!  I have used it with the C6 Lattice and Butterflies Decorative Dies cut from the reverse side of the "My Friend" pp to create a pop of colour and contrast on the fresh and crisp "My Sweetheart" pp.

True Love Collection

The second new release collection for January is the motivational "#Me".  This collection puts the spotlight on creating layouts with the focus on YOU and has a beautiful soft green, blue and yellow colour palette.
The leaf flourishes in my flower clusters were created with one of the new Die and Stamp Decorative Dies (Rose) which I stamped and diecut, then outlined the leaves with a black fineliner pen.
