I was BEYOND thrilled to learn that the first Xyron blog hop of 2013 would be with Kaisercraft. I love all things Aussie and Kaisercraft is no exception! I was honored to work with Kaisercraft's new Flora Delight Collection and have three projects to share with you.
Here is a shot of the wall piece right out of the package, unadorned and unassembled.
Because I planned to cover each wooden piece with patterned paper, I simply painted the edges of each piece with some gesso. You can use any white paint.
I then traced each wooden piece on the backside of my patterned paper, trimmed it with my scissors, and ran each piece of paper through a Xyron machine (I used both the Xyron 5" Creative Station and Xyron Creatopia) to easily adhere onto the wood.
I then proceeded to further embellish one panel and the bird cutout. I started by sparingly painting over the patterned paper with the gesso. I then stamped some musical notes randomly throughout the panel.
I then sprayed various mists throughout the panel before adhering letter stickers and thickers onto the panel to write out the quote.
I adhered all of the pieces of the wall art together just using some wood glue.
And here are some close ups of the Bird Song Wall Art.

2. Daisy Paper Wreath. I also created a paper wreath by cutting out paper flowers from the gorgeous Kaisercraft Flora Delight papers.

3. Quilted Star Card. And to show how beautifully all the papers come together, here is a quilted star card I made using a fantastic die from W Plus 9.
