Mixed media canvas

 This canvas has been decorated from the back side to add dimensions.

The canvas has been covered with paper and sealed with multimedium. Then I have added paper squares, small tiles, metal bits and beads. Then, I have covered everything with black paint and drypainted it. You can find the video tutorial at the end of the post. 

The text "Grip dagen" is - "Carpe diem" in Norwegian. The text has been cut, using a silhouette. 

The parts used for the ground are from old typewriters, clocks, sewing machines and chess pieces. The little skier, is an old brass figure.

A Christmas pop up panel card

The Christmas crafting season has started, and so has the creation of Christmas cards. This pop up panel card, is something I have seen online a while ago, and I wanted to have a go at it.

The Christmas Wishes collection from Kaisercraft, is a fantastic collection with soft pastel colours, and gold. It is fantastic for Christmas projects.

For the pop up panel card, the inside fold open as you open the card. This shows better in the short film added to the end of the blog post.

The ornaments are from the Collectables and thetext at the bottom is from the Sticker sheet.

I always decorate the back of my cards simply, with a penel and my my name.

Christmas glitter house ornament

Kaisercraft is out with their first Christmas collection for this year, Christmas wishes. 

I wanted to create a little Christmas present with the collection.  I ended up, creating a little Christmas ornament with a church with lights. I also created a little box from for the ornament.

The box has windows on two of the sides, so the ornament inside the box can be seen.

The box opens, and the base is made as a base for the ornament, so it can be seen as a snow globe.

The ornament can be lifted and used as a little Christmas ornament. The acrylic ball is 10cm in diameter.

On the base, the ornament looks like a little snow globe.

Kaisercraft Products: Christmas wishes: P2142 Bauble Gerland | P2145 Pearlescent | P2146 Fur Tree | P2149 Season Greatings | PP1003 Paper Pad | Glitter cardstock Lagoon GC 110 | Decorative Die Oval Vintage Frame DD369.

A minialbum with mixed media and a pop-up camera

It is not often I make something to order, but this is one of those things. The minialbum has been created using mostly papers from Kaisercraft and flowers from Prima. The papers are from three different collections, Time Machine, Generations and one of the base coat paper pads.

On the front of the album, I have used flowers and leaves from Prima. I must admit - I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to Prima and Kaisercraft stuff. Some of the Prima flowers are from old collection, that I have had for a while. I am happy to see that some of the flowers are now being sold again.

I have used one of Tim Holtz stencils and gesso on the background, together with washi tape.

The flowers at the right, are now being sold again.

The album itself is simply decorated. Only the first and the last page is decorated. On the other pages, I have added panels and some diecuts at the edges. I have left it simple, for the recipient to be able to ad her own photos.

The first page has been decorated in a mixed media style. The photo has been covered, as I didn't want to publish the photo of the recipient.

 A lot of the pages has different flips, and opens up. The pages closes with magnets.

On some of the pages, I have added pockets with space for tags.

I have used a Tim Holtz edge dies on the end of the tags. A lot of the texts are transparent stickers from Kaisercraft.

In the middle of the album, I have added a tag. The tag is also the gift card, that comes with the album.

The text "Give the ones you love, wings to fly, roots to come back and reasons to stay" is a sticker from Kaisercraft.

The tag at the back, has been designed with a Silhouette.

I often add a pop up at the last page of my albums. This album is no exception. The album is for a photographer, so I wanted to create a vintage pop-up camera. 

The idea for the front of the camera (lens part) came from a photo of a card I found online. However, I am not able to find back to the source. I have designed a lot of pop-ups and therefore, It was easy to understand the principal of how to build a basic pop-up camera.

The table and the camera itself is built on "ordinary" pop-up principles. 

You can find the tutorial on how I create albums like this, in this blog post.
