KaiserCraft card

Hi lovelies!

This card is a DT contribution for Hobbykunst
It is made from gorgeous papers by KaiserCraft. The collection is called Betsy's Couture. 

Papers used: A-line, Gown and Mary Jane from Betsy's Couture collection. On the inside I've used Blue Bay from the Sapphire collection (also KaiserCraft).
The word Dream is a clear sticker from KaiserCraft's Delicate Words stickers.
The clock in the background is a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die.


Inside (don't you just looooove the dimension in this paper):

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fantastic week!

Mixed Media Canvas ~ Dina Wakley Inspired

I made this mixed media canvas from a technique in Dina Wakley's newest book, Art Journal Courage. I loved the idea of making a stencil of someone I know (rather than myself.. hehe).

As I am a member of Hobbykunst's designteam, I thought that the fabulous Connie would be the perfect "victim".. She is the heart and soul of Hobbykunst, and is continuing the journey of Hobbykunst as an online shop as the store in Vestby unfortunately is closing.

A step by step tutorial, you asked?
By all means!

Prep canvas with gesso and let dry.
Make puddle with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink and let run. Spray Funky Fuchsia through Dina Wakley stencil and let dry.

Fill fineliner with Golden Fluid Acrylics Teal and make circles. Let dry.

Edit photo on computer and cut out stencil. 

Place stencil on canvas and cover everything you don't want black...

Spray with Liquitex Carbon Black spray paint. Should be done outside. Quickly lift stencil.


Now add a quote using different stencils and black gesso. You can also use black paint, but I quite like the matte finish the black gesso gives.

Add some texture.

...and then some writing... 

And voilá, you're done!

I wish Connie the best of luck!
