Smile by Kylie Obst

Love this layout by Kylie Obst that I found on the Kaisercraft website.  She has used 'Close Up!' patterned papers: Focus, Capture, Lens, Apperture, Fish Eye and an Acetate Specialty Sheet (on order from Kaisercraft).
I love this Acetate Specialty Sheet as it adds another layer to your page without adding too much bulk!  Full details and instructions on how to create this page can be found on the Kaisercraft website HERE.

I have the 'Close Up!' paper range in stock and will be adding the Acetate Specialty Sheet very soon.  Thanks for stopping by today - have a lovely weekend.

Art Journaling with Kaisercraft

Over on the Kaisercraft Blog, Naomi has been showing how to create an Art Journal.  I've always fancied making one of these.  Full details on their blog HERE.

Just a few things you will need:

A sturdy A4 Journal (Kraft) from Kaisercraft (or something similar).

A pot of Gel Medium (or Gesso - same thing). 

Add some images, paints - using stencils etc. and you have the start of something fab:

Here's the finished page - just needs a quote!

Scrapbook Challenge: November - reminder

Just to remind you that you can get 10 EXTRA entries into this month's Blog Candy Draw by entering the Scrapbook Challenge.  The challenge is open until midnight 29th November 2014.

This is the sample layout that you have to base your creation on - but remember it is your interpretation of this layout that's important.

I know that there is a fabulous entry from one of our Mad Scrappers in the process of being created (which looked gorgeous in it's half finished state).  Until I get that entry the cupboard looks a bit bare.  So I'm pleading with you to get out your lovely winter photographs and get scrapping!

I know I can rely on certain quarters of our Mad Scrappers Club to get involved but it would be lovely if we could get some more entries in this month.  Just to remind you that the gorgeous Teresa Collins 'Tinsel and Company' 12x12 Scrapbook Pack is awaiting the winner of this month's draw:

Thanks for stopping by - see you all back here tomorrow.
