Color Combo's Galore Inspiration Board #240 is BOUDOIR FANTASIES is LIVE!

Here is where the inspiration took me:

I was swept away with Lavender, Teal, Light Steel Blue, Plum and Lime.

Papers from the Kaisercraft Lavender Haze collection with a splash of Graphic 45 Secret Garden were perfect for this palette.

Some misted detail and texture was first added to the background 'Thistle' paper first - I used Glimmer Mists - Bahama Blue and Juneberry Wine. A little impasto paste and gesso was added with a Twiddleybitz Brick Stencil. Some more misted detail was added over the top over the chipboard overly with a Prima circle flourish mask.

This is the final inspiration board for April, isn't it a beauty!

My main inspiration focus was from Photo #2 - Focus on the Product - Frames.  The stunning overlay frame I have incorporated into the design is a Twiddleybitz OV002 Circle Flourish

 I also took inspiration from the shabby decor shown in the frames pictured in the Inspiration Photo #1 - I included Prima resin and die cut parasol elements. The vase of flowers shown in Photo #1 also inspired the large Prima floral accent on the shoe.  

A touch of bling was added with some rhinestones and pearls - inspiration taken from the shoe accents as shown in the Inspiration Photo #4. The shoe also inspired the shoe element incorporated into the design of my project - Twiddleybitz Flower Shoe Flourish  was the perfect touch.

The key to a happy home....

Hello and weekend greetings!

I have a home decor piece to share with you today. This one combines a large Kaisercraft Standing Key and the Pickled Pear Collection. A few Twiddleybitz chipboard components were added together to create a little village effect across the top of the key.
The front of the large MDF key was covered with pattered paper with the edges given a heavy coat of white gesso.  This was applied with a stippled appearance to add a little shabby appeal. A couple of coats were applied to give a better coverage. The first coat of paint tends to soak in somewhat as the MDF can be a little thirsty.  

Once dry the edges were inked with a finger dabber and some distress ink.  Modge Podge was then randomly applied across the top and side edges of the key with some Twiddleybitz plastic shards then added and allowed to dry.  Diamond Dust also works a treat, the effect is a little more sparkly than using the plastic shards.

Glimmer Mists were then applied over the top of the shards. I used a combination of Tattered Angels Coffee Shop and Turquoise Blue. A couple of applications of each to build the colour up.  
Little houses were constructed from the Twiddleybitz Miniature House Kit . There are 3 in kit, all slightly different.  These were decorated using papers from the Pickled Pear Paper Pad and Twiddleybitz button emphera - these are available at the shows.
Twiddleybitz Cast Iron Gates, Skeleton Tree and Lamp Post were added to the scene.  Some Kaiser lace was altered with gesso and glimmer mists and applied across the front.
Pretty Kaiser blooms, ribbon and a few Pickled Pear collectable elements finish it off.

Kaiser: Flora Delight

Prepare to fall in 'Love' with Kaisercraft's FLORA DELIGHT collection. With beautiful colours, elements and floral imaging, it will have the girly girl in anyone giggling with happiness.

 Now for a few projects created with this truly delightful collection:

First up a layout:

The reverse side of the 'Happiness' paper creates a neutral background for the magenta, pink and orange tonings to 'pop'. These papers were perfect for someone like me who likes to get 'scissor happy'. Hand cut leaves and floral blooms were layered with a few collectable elements and pretty paper blooms - a mix of coral, hot pink and fuchsia were clustered together.

Next a card for a special someone whose smile does make the world a much better place when they do
An easel arrangement was first created with spellbinders dies with lots of hand cut and collectable elements layered together.
And a little 3D altered wall art - this one is the Butterfly: 
The fence pailings were altered with Base Coat 'Whitewash' paper. Just love the authentic wood grain look with the touch of shabby appeal. 
 Flora Delight elements were added to complete this happy home decor sentiment piece.

From our house to yours...

Earlier last year I was invited to create a beyond the page project for Scrapbook Creations that  showcased a few photos.  A Twiddleybitz House Printers Tray creates a beautiful foundation -  I loved putting this little house project together as seen in SC #96:

'From our house to yours'

The Printers Tray was relatively easy to construct - it came with instructions and was decorated with patterned papers from the Kaiser Turtle Dove Collection. This was one of my favourite Kaiser Christmas releases from last year. Although a Christmas range, the colours are classic and quite decor neutral and worked well for the project. The inside and outside of the tray were 'wallpapered' and 'rendered'.
A few family photos taken through the year were added to the rooms. As they were taken at differed times, they were altered to black and white to coordinate. Twiddleybitz furniture pieces FUR007 and FUR008 add a little homely feel and a medley of Prima flowers, vines and leaves add a touch of sweetness.
