I think this page reminded me how much I still enjoy making layouts....

I used one of the papers as a background but the card was mostly made up of the collectables. I arranged them all first till I was happy then took a photo. I then used foam tape to make all the different pieces different heights, this gave a really cool 3d effect. As I took pieces off to apply foam tape I used the photo I had take to get the placement and angle right when sticking them back down.
The unit itself is also from Kaisercraft. I started by putting the unit together and painting it with Kaisercraft Sage paint. I used many of the Pickled Pear papers from the paper pack and co-ordinating 12 x 12' sticker page. Rather than using the matching collectables I cut some of the images out of the papers as they seemed bigger. Once all stuck down I used Tom Holtz Distress ink in Bundled Sage around the edges of everything (quite liberally especially around the drawer edges). I love this paper range and will definately be making some more "off the page" items with my leftover papers.

I have entered a crafty type competition recently. The project wasn't hard but the question " what is your creative style" really got me......
I love anything with cogs, wheels and metal embellishments like keys and clocks.
But I also really enjoy making my own flowers, and really bright bold colours too.. How do cogs, clocks, metal and flowers go together?

Carly is a good friend of mine and you can see more of her work on her blog: http://crafty-carly.blogspot.com.au
It was very simply made by covering the jar with thinned purple glue or similar and then applying a the napkin with a brush with more glue (3ply napkins are best. You then divide the ply's and only use the decorative one). Once completly covered I left it to dry. I then added bling ribbon and washi tape at the top layered ribbon at the bottom and layered a paper flower with a lovely handmade flower I bought online. I also popped one of the handmade flowers on the top to complete my design.
Its a really simple and quick to make. This one is very bright but could be made in more muted colours or to go with a room colour scheme. Without the top it would make a really nice pen holder too.
