My Projects

For Round 2 of the Kaisercraft Design Team selection, we were sent papers from the Velvet Ensemble range to create a layout.
These papers are just gorgeous... so rich in colour... and perfect for Heritage Layouts...

And to me it screamed 1920's, so of course the first place I headed was my box of heritage photos and found this one of my Grandfather's sister taken in the 1920s... perfect.!



and here are some detail pics...




We were also sent a trinket box and the pretty papers from Pink Gelato...
This range is very sweet, just perfect for the trinket box.

I painted the box antique white, and edged it all in gold paint. I wanted some more gold detail, so I stamped the papers with a script stamp and embossed the papers I used with a gilded gold embossing powder. I love the random look...



and of course, the detail photos...









And of course, me being me... I couldn't stop playing with the papers when I started and created another layout with Velvet Ensemble...



and of course... more details...





I can't thank everyone who encouraged me enough... you're all wonderful!

Roll on the next 12 months... what a ride we're going to have!
