time is a storyteller {KAISERCRAFT & MERLY IMPRESSIONS}

hello scrappy friends! 

thank you so much for dropping by! 

today i would like to share a brand new project i created for MERLY IMPRESSIONS using one of my favourite KAISERCRAFT collections "ANTIQUE BAZAAR" {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store}. 

on the picture is my grandma again, but about 10 years after her girly school photo, ca. 1944-45.

i used the RECYCLE pattern paper for my background. to lighten the colour of the paper i added a layer of GESSO in the middle. for the dimensional pattern i used KAISERCRAFT damask quarters 12×12 stencil and RANGER INK texture paste. once the paste has dried, i sprinkled a bit of KAISERMIST spray ink – antique gold on top of the background paper.

i used the MINI PAPER PAD to create the layers under my picture. i shaped the edges of the patter papers using MARTHA STEWART punch and adhered the different layers with mounting foam tape.
to embellish my layout i used different sayings from the 12″ sticker sheet

i also used KAISERCRAFT paper blooms terracotta and mini paper blooms coconut.
to die cut the leafy flourishes i used KAISERCRAFT decorative die foliage and MARIANNE DESIGN leafy dies. i used die cut edges and KAISERCRAFT lace natural.

 the pearly swirl is also from KAISERCRAFT – elegant pearl flourish latte. i used PEARLS champagne to decorate the die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack

i used different die cuts from the COLLECTABLES pack and fussy cut elements from the MINI PAPER PAD.

TIP! if you are not satisfied with the colour of the die cut, you can alter it by adding a thin layer of KaiserMist Spray Ink – Antique Gold or any other colour. it will give a light shimmer to the paper – look at the black frame under my sentiment.

thank you so much for dropping by!

have a lovely day!

hugs 'n smiles,
