Masking with Kaisercraft Wood Flowers


Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a fab weekend so far. I'm planning on hitting the beach with the kiddos soon, and then scrapping the night away with my girl. I have made a huge mess of my craft room, so I'll have to make myself sort that out before I can get any scrapping done. It drives me nuts when I cant find things, and at the moment I cant find anything!!!

I made this project for the Kaisercraft blog a little while back, and just thought I'd share it on here too, as you all know how much I love a good step by step project :) (And I'm apologizing in advance for the weird colour of some of my photos!)


Step 1 - To start off, paint up a page of a wood album, then grab a few of the Kaisercraft wood flowers. Of course you could use other things for this, such as punched shapes,etc


Step 2 - Arrange them on your album page and then spray with a misting spray (I used Smooch Spritz in Silver Foil)


Step 3 - Once it’s dry you’ll have a unique background to work on


Step 4 - Add a photo and a rub on, and finish it off with a bit of ribbon through the holes, so you can hang it up. I've got it hanging on a little hook on Emily's door.

It was so quick and easy to do. It's a really quick and easy technique for making your own backgrounds for layouts and cards too :) Em has been harping on at me to let her have a go of "spraying stuff" on her layouts, so I'm gonna be brave and let her try it tonight.

Happy Scrapping!

This is gorgeous, but what page wouldn't be with your little girl's gorgeous face, this is a great technique and I love the outline around the perimeter.

Dear Sam, yah, I did it, worked it all out thanks for the advice and put your candy on the blog. I am way too excited but starting to get to know more of the buttons on the blog now. Have a great mum's day tomorrow.
