Jet X

It's another LO featuring my sister and her partner. They can up to the Sunshine Coast for a wedding in 2010 and drove down to spend two days with me and Ben. We've done most of the tourist attractions on the Gold Coast now so for some reason I agreed to go on an exteme jetboat ride with them despite knowing I get sea sick. We made it back to land just in time!

I loved the bold red/white contrast in this picture. This one was created for the Kaisercraft May Saturday Sketch #1. I have used their Lovestruck paper range, which as you can see is easily adaptable to non-romantic LO's as well. I really like the bold colours and intricate patterns in this range. I've just tried to research it and it looks like this range may have been released in 2009! :O

The sketch called for some strips of paper with journalling on top but I decided it was finally time to try the paper rolls technique. I think it looks quite effective and Ben really liked the effect. I've learnt you need to be careful what kind of paper you use though. The yellow is by another company and is a bit thicker so it didn't hold it's shape as well.

Below is the May #1 Kaisercraft sketch I had to work from. You also have to make sure 80% of the work is Kaisercraft products. I've used their cardstock, papers, pearls, rhinestone and fabric flower. Alphas are American Crafts and doilies are from The Chip Chop Shop.

  4. Fabulous interpretation of the sketch Lauren!! I love the colours & the rolled pp too :-)

    I'd love to have a go on one of those jet boat rides but I think I'd end up the same as you... oh dear!
