And lots, lots more can be seen here.

 

Starting off with the school theme, we have two layouts to share.  The new Alpha stencil has been used in both backgrounds, with different applications.

BACK TO SCHOOL: the alpha stencil was sprayed with two different coloured mists, then smashed in the top corner to get a reverse image, and when dry, traced around the letters, then doodling inside some of them.

Sharing…

by Cindy Porter | 1 Comment

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here, thanks for joining me today…

Today I’d like to share with you a couple of layouts, first up is “Just Married” 

 

Ahhh… it seems like only yesterday Bill and I were starting out… where did all that time go…

I created my background using the Palm Frond Stencil from Scrap FX and plenty of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays…

It’s a gorgeous stencil isn’t it…

 

I used the Just Married title from Scrap FX and spray and inked it up.

 

I used the same spray and ink treatment on the Chickenwire Heart (in which I cut out the chicken wire centre, I’ll save that for another project).  I used a Prima frame, lace doily and tag along with Prima papers… I like using Prima papers for my mixed media layouts, they have a heavier weight and take the products so well, the perfect compliment for my Scrap FX stencils and chipboard….

Palm Frond Stencil 

Chickenwire Heart

Just Married 



The next layout; Dream, I designed for one of the lovely ladies who attended the Scrappe Tiger retreat back in May…

 I was showing her how she could create loads of  texture quickly and easily using Scrap FX  products….

 We used the Palm Frond Stencil to create a textured border for the layout, first with modelling paste, then sprays and inks…

 The Dream title was coloured using a couple of colours of Inka Gold…

 Some simple techniques to provide maximum impact, she loved the finished design….

“Travel Fun” By Cindy Brown

Hello all, Cindy B back with you today sharing 2 projects with 2 process videos!

First I made a turquoise page (my favorite color).

I used several stamps and my gelatos for the colour, so without further ado here is my page and of course the accompanying video.

I hope you enjoy!

Two Journeys by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 4 Comments

Hi there!

Riikka here with you today sharing a couple of layouts using the ScrapFX chippies, stencils and stamps!

scrapfxfeb1

Do you have a holiday that was so special that you always start  to smile when you hear the place mentioned? I actually have a few of those kinds of awesome travel experiences. One of them is from Barcelona, Spain. We visited this beautiful city during the autumn of 2000 together with my high school group. There’s many great moments from that trip like visiting the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya art museum or walking through the Parc Güell in  heavy rain. As I haven’t document this trip in a traditional layout yet, I decided to take this opportunity to do so.

scrapfxfeb1d2

I used the Travel Stencil and Heart Spangles Stamp to add layers to the background. I used mist with the stencil and ink with the stamp using a turquoise / yellow color scheme to mimic the warmth and freshness I experienced in the town. The title word, Barcelona, I treated with embossing glitter to get that sparkling feeling. I also added a pointer and an arrow to the page as embellishments.

 ScrapFX supplies used:

Barcelona (2014408)

Map Pointers (2014388)

Arrows, fancy (2012374)

Travel Stencil (2014396 )

Heart Spangles Stamp (2014213)

There’s two styles of journeys – the holiday ones and then something more abstract. The journeys of growth, craft journeys or life itself. As the first page was an actual holiday trip, I thought to make the other page about more of an abstract journey.

I picked the colors from the photo I used – vintage brown and mystical purple. I also added some black for the contrast. The photo itself is taken from the back window of the train while the summer sun was setting.

scrapfxfeb2d3

In the background I layered two stencils: I first used the Number Party Stencil and misted brown mist to the paper. On top I created some random lettering or words with the Travel Stencil. They bring a touch of structure to the piece. As a finishing touch I also added some drawn circles using the Random Dots Stencil.

I’ve choose this chipboard wordlet as a main focus of the card. And created the whole flourish composition around it.

I’ve covered the chipboard with a red LSG embossing powder and then added some glitter to create some sparkling on the project.

I’ve added trim to the background to add more softness to the project. And at last moment I’ve decided to add decorative berries and chili pepper to the flourish composition to highlight the theme and color of the chipboard pieceSFX_IrinaGerschuk_11_4

“A whole lot of “Moody” inspiration!” Part 2

by MichelleL | 3 Comments

 Are we ready for some more inspiration using the moodboard for this month?

Well lets go!

Just as a reminder here is the board the gals have been using to spark their creativity:

Oh and if you missed the first reveal of the moodboard take a short trip HERE.
ImageProxy-1

So first up we have Cindy B:

Cindy replicated some of the  colour on the board with the fabulous sprinkles of copper flakes and a background made with home made sprays (using Primary Elements powder by ColourArte) on watercolour paper.

DSC05944

Cindy used the powder pigment to colour the chipboard title so it complemented the page perfectly!

DSC05946

Leaving the arrow chippies raw really worked well with the colour scheme.

Take in that marvellous background and the texture created by the travel stencil.

Product List:

Lets hear it from Claire how she used the board:

“I was really inspired by the colours of the mood board. I decided to work my background with my usual watercolours in these shades: yellow/gold and blue, on a plain white cardstock. I also added a touch of black like there is on the mood board.
I applied medium paste (I am not sure of the English word for it) through the travel stencil, and I painted some of the words black after it dried off.”
 Claire has certainly captured a summery beachy feel in this page!

Ludmila-pic

 

My name is  Ludmila Kodymskaya.  I’m from Russia .
With my family – husband and two sons – I live in the city of Ufa (one of the major cities in Russia).
In scrapbooking it came in quite an obvious way – I became a mother :) My family definitely is the most huge inspiration for me :)
The thing I love to do most is pages and albums, as they are the most functional and fully implement the main purpose of this hobby.  As for the style and techniques, here I am quite “versatile” – where as I am much more on the feminine side of scrapping, depending on my mood I can add some mixed-media or try something else…

 

**********

Ludmila has made four very beautiful projects for Scrap FX.  The first is a layout Picture Perfect:

Places with Beauty

by Arantzazu Sangrador | 3 Comments

Hi friends! Arantzazu here ;)

Today I´m going to share with you two layouts with the fabulous new chipboards!

The first layout, I have done on a black background to give center stage to the picture and the details surrounding it.
When I saw the” untouched beauty” chipboard, I thought about abandoned places that still keep alive a story, so I looked for a photo that represented just that ! and I think I found it !
I stamped leaves with gold ink and I added green accents !
and this is the result…

2015-02-03 11.49.36

Product list:

- untouched beauty 

- leaves a simple stamp

For the second layout I used “the beauty of nature” chipboard and could not pass up the chance to use a photo of the Gorbea landscape , a mountain near where I live!

I tried to use the colours shown in the picture to create a mix media background .
I have embossed leaves and stamped a few at the bottom , I thought to emboss the chipboard but I think with that craft colour it looks great !
