Hello Crafty Friends,
Do you ever purchase the Kaisercraft Gloss Specialty Papers? With each Kaisercraft Collection they include a Specialty Paper and sometimes they are Gloss Specialty Papers. Included in the new Beach Shack Collection there is the paper I used on my Layout today: PS516 Mosaic – Gloss.
In this post I am sharing three handy tips for using Gloss Specialty Papers in your projects.
3 Handy Tips for Using Gloss Specialty Paper
Tip #1 – Spray Mists and Baby Wipes
Have you ever tried Spray Mists and Baby Wipes on Gloss Specialty Papers? It is so effective! Simply spray your mist onto the page and wipe a Baby Wipe over the paper in your chosen design. The image printed on the Gloss Specialty Papers comes through the mist creating a lovely pattern. You can get really creative with the shape of your design and the mixing of colours.
Tip #2 – Templates and Stamping
Have you ever inked through a Template or stamped with ink onto Gloss Specialty Papers? It works really well. The paper can handle inks and this adds some more detail to your project.
Tip #3 – Choose Colours to Match the Papers
This might sound obvious, but the colours you choose really impact your project when you are working with Gloss Specialty Papers. For this Layout I tried to pick the colours in Mists and Inks that were closest to the colours in the Beach Shack Collection. By using Mists and Inks you can also add in other complimentary colours that would coordinate with the Paper Collection if you desire.
I filmed how I made this Layout in the Process Video below:
