Kaisercraft DT - Mix & Match

Hello everyone :)
Today I have a few projects to share, created as part of my Design Team work for Kaisercraft.
Using the VERY versatile "Mix & Match" collection.  This collection is a mix of Kraft, Red, Black & White...and also comes with some matching embellishments.

"Pre 20's drinks"

I decided to go with the Kraft coloured paper for my background & it also has that fabo chicken wire print in white.  It is the reverse side of the "Lace" paper (I have recently noticed that I seem to use the B/reverse sides of papers A LOT!)

I hand cut the chevrons from the "Crosses" paper (again, the B
The chevron's on this paper are red and kraft in colour....I needed them to be white, so I painted them in gesso - problem solved :D  They are mounted up on foam tape to give them
height & definition on the page

I've used pieces from the Collectables pack, Doily & Alpha sticker sheets, some paper blooms....along with some 2Crafty chipboard feathers for my cluster.
And you can see bits of my journaling along the bottom of the last chevron.
I had wanted to do the journaling in white, but, of course, my white journal pen
did not want to cooperate!
The arrows are also from the Alpha Sticker Sheet, as is the kraft alpha stickers.

Next up is another layout
"New found friend"
Again, I've gone for a kraft coloured background & I've added some template work with modelling paste, and some chevron stamping on top of that.  The template is a new release one called "Quarters" - it has 4 different patterns, each taking up a 1/4 of the template :)

I fussy cut one of the butterflies from the "Butterflies" paper (yay, this one isn't the B side!! lol) and added some paper blooms, heart sticker & fabric button to form my cluster.

I've added a few pieces of cream lace in between my paper well as a new printed tape "Black Arrows" which will be released next month!


I've added my trademark strip journaling to tell the story about these 2 meeting
& becoming friends <3

Next is an altered picture frame

The frame was bought from one of the cheap shops, and I made sure that the front surface of it was flat....knowing that I'd be adhering paper to it.  I've used the reverse side of the "Confetti" paper, with those fabulous arrows, to cover the front of the frame. I've also splashed some red & white mists randomly over the paper.

I added a pretty cluster to the top left side of the frame....with another butterfly fussy cut from the Butterflies paper, some paper blooms & mini paper blooms, a doily sticker & some diecut leaves using KC red cardstock....and a few buttons.

Across the bottom of the frame I've added one of the cut-off strips with some hearts from the Doily Sticker sheet mounted on foam tape.
