Friday Focus - Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes

Hello Everyone! It's Pamellia, and I am here today to hostess the Friday Focus. I will be working with some fabulous wood flourishes from Kaisercraft, one of the wonderful new product lines that Linda is carrying in The Funkie Junkie Boutique. For the next two weeks there will be an additional 15% discount on the Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes.


I decided to do something fun and vibrant for the spring season, so I chose some fabulous flourishes that I could build a scene with. The Funky Butterflies, Twin Lamp Post and Small Leaves.


For the lamp post; I covered pieces of it with Glossy Accents and Pumice Stone Distress Glitter to give it some texture. I covered the entire thing with Black Soot Distress Paint and then lightly dabbed on some Distress Paints Weathered Wood, Picket Fence and Brushed Pewter.




For the first butterfly, I painted it with Picket Fence and then used the Tim Holtz Gothic stencil and some texture paste to lay down a pattern. I covered the paste with Ranger clear embossing powder to act as a resist. Once it was dried and heated, I sprayed it with Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink Sprays.




For the second butterfly, I painted it with Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry (which I forgot to take a picture of) then used some watered down Picket Fence to white wash it. A coating of Rock Candy Crackle Paint and then a dribble of Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry sprays into the cracks.




For the last butterfly, I coated it with Picket Fence Crackle Paint and then used Distress Ink Pads Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry to lightly colour the surface.




For the leaves, I used some Peeled Paint Distress Paint and some Wendy Vecchi Fern Green embossing powder to partially cover the leaves. Then I sprayed them with Walnut Stain Distress Stain, for a little distress leafy look.



I added some Tim Holtz/Sizzix Trellis die cuts in the back painted with Picket Fence paint and streaked with Black Soot ink right from the pad. Some beautiful Melissa Francis pearls adorn the bodies of the butterflies.





The Celebrate Stamp is from the new Graphic 45 line Time To Flourish. I added the "SPRING" with an alphabet stamp set. The flower is cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and the seam binding was also coloured with Dusty Concord and Picked Raspberry.


I hope you enjoyed my techniques on how to make beautiful embellishment with these fabulous Kaisercraft Flourishes. They can take a lot of products and never warp and they add so much dimension to any project that you may make. You can even used them completely as is for a more earthy, natural look.

All of the below products can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and don't forget that all the Kaisercraft Wood Flourishes will have an extra 15% discount applied for the next two weeks.

Happy crafting, Pamellia :)

  16. Having only recently received the Gorgeous lamp-posts as part prize from Linda's shop I can completely endorse your praise for them. They are fabulous! As is your whole project today Pamellia. Beautiful end result and great tutorial. Really like your photos showing the products as used. Sometimes it can be bamboozling to read a whole list of products so including them in the snaps makes it easier on the brain (well imo anyway). Seeing French on the labels (bilingual Canada) is new to me too. Anyway, great post! Nicola x

  20. Fantastic Pamellia and such a great tutorial! Love how you have altered each of the pieces, so many great techniques. Even altering (sort of) the sentiment is so clever! Funnily enough one of my favourite bits is what you did with the trellis die cut, that streaking looks so clever, but I have to say all the other bits look wonderful too! A truly gorgeous make, love it!!
