ColourArte Design Team Call

 
Hey guys it's Sara here today from Just Cards By Sara... I wanted to share a project I have made for the DT call with this awesome company called ColourArte I just adore their products and use them on a lot of my Mixed Media Projects.. I am going to take you through a step by step process... Be sure to check this awesome company out ....




Here is the project I was trying to channel Finnabair because she is such a huge inspiration of mine... I have used four amazing products from ColourArte .... Primary Element Powders  English Lavendar , Golden Jade,  Black Cherry ... I have also used Silks colour in Solar Gold... Click on any of these product names and they will take you directly to the ColourArte Store...


 
  •  I started with a hard piece of chipboard and used a stencil-texture paste, some lace and cheesecloth to give me some texture
  • I then started going through my stash of random metal that I had collected from my grandfather's garage... I added flowers, bling and pearls... to this I started adding random pieces like ringpull from a can, keys, nuts ,bolts, springs and even buckles anything I thought would look awesome when covered and sprayed....
  •  Once I have the arrangement I love I start going over with multiple coats of white gesso...
  •    After that I grabbed my Primary Elements from Colourarte in the colours named above and mixed them with a combination of water, alcohol and hairspray ... I place them in a spray bottle and shake the contents not to much... when I was done I had three different colour sprays ..
  •  I then took turns spraying till I was happy with the colour and how it all blended...
  • Once I was done and had left it overnight to dry I took some Silks paints from ColourArte and went over all the items to make them pop off the page a bit more so they weren't so lost in one colourness lol... It gives it great dimension and texture... Keep adding your ColourArte spray until you are happy with it... 
  • My tag is  now complete...

               Kaisercraft Design Team 2015 Entry


Hey guys today I wanted to share some projects I have made to apply to the Kaisercraft Design Team.. I really love this company and there products as you all know if you watch my video's Kaisercraft is my go to product... They do everything from Paper, Stencils, mist, dies, inks,chipboard pieces, paints ,stamps and even alterable of the page projects...


My First Project is a card I made with Hidden Treasures .. I have used some of the large Kaisercraft flowers in Honey, Sage and Olive.. Inside I have used some items from the collectable pack from the same collection and from them also I have used a saying stamp... I created this using a brown paper bag and was trying to create a mini card...

 

 
 

 

For my Second project I have made a mini using one of their alterable Mini's I created this using my all time favourite paper pad 75cents, I used some of the collectables and flowers....

 
 
 
 
 
 
For the third I have made a layout using Key to my heart 12x12 paper sheets this collection is so pretty and looks good for all those shabby chic/girlie projects so it was prefect for this cute pic of my cousins baby Avery... She is so cute...

Cupid Card third Dt Project Molossi Chipboard


Hey guys its Sara again and today I wanted to share my third Design Team Project for this month for Molossi Chipboard... When I first started I stuck to cards and that's where my confidence grew as time as gone on I have progressed into all types of crafting... I have created this shabby chic card and a little tutorial below... I used one of the new collections from Kaisercraft called Key to my heart..

I have layered some different diecuts so it could give some dimension to my Molossi Chipboard Cupid which is so cute..I went over this piece using some inks and glitter which just makes the piece pop...

Tutorial:

Once I was layered I realised I didn't like the masking and replaced the sheet behind with a new one... I think it over powered it... So I decided to change the background sheet.. 


 
On this first photo I have layered my paper which I have distressed, I then started creating some layers

I have continued my layering to give it that dimension and to make the chipboard really pop.. I have started adding my embellishments..


I have then coloured my chipboard using ink and glitter...
Adding flowers and leave diecuts... Finishing it off with some pearls and my trademark a butterfly... This is so simple to create but I love how it turned out.. Let me know what you think!!!!

Nuts about You


Nuts About You

 
Hey guys its Sara today I wanted to share my first Design Team Project for Molossi...
I have made this layout of a close family friends using Molossi awesome chipboard...
I wanted it to be something special for my first ever layout so I tried my hardest and I am so proud of how it all turned out...
 
 For the background I have done a number of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays , Ranger Dylusions, Masks and Texture Paste, Stamping and textures..
 
  
 
 
 I have used Kaisercraft's paper collect On this day and 75 Cents... Once I had my background complete I started layering my photo matt, tulle and fussy cut flowers..
The flowers are most made but there is some Kaisercraft sage flowers mixed in there..
Once my cluster was complete with alot of fiddling I then added my chipboard from Molossi.. I have used the gorgeous Fluer de Lis and the numbers up in the left hand corner which stands for the years they have been together... I then went over the whole thing with Viva D├ęcor Ink Gold
