Anguree Christmas cards and more

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

Hello dear friends

Can you believe is is just a little over 5 weeks to Christmas? Where did the time go?

If you are slowly getting your cards and presents ready I hope that this beautiful new chipboard collection will inspire you to make your own cards. Why not give your loved ones a special  hand made Christmas Card this year? This is how I decided to use my favourite new released pieces.

White Christmas 

Scrap FX Products used

Decorative Antlers

Merry Christmas Mini

I cut and painted my Antlers with white acrylic paint but decided to leave the Merry Christmas Mini words in their original shape and colour. I loved the white on white but also the contrast of the raw chipboard to the beautiful 49 And Market Papers.

For additional texture I combined dry embossed certain panels whilst adding modeling past and glitter to others.

Adore you

Adore Words

Decorative Antlers

Square Words Mini

Brocade Lace stencil

Now if you are not a carmaker or someone who don’t do Christmas layouts there is no reason why you can’t use this beautiful new release of chippies. Here I used it an entirely different context and put a romantic spin on it by using this photo of my husband and I.

I used one of my favorite Scrap FX stencils, the Brocade Lace stencil, to create a background for my photo and added some flower clusters to each side.

You will note that this time I left all of my chipboard pieces raw instead of painting them.

Thank you for stopping by.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today and that you visit us again soon.

Till next time

Christmas layout by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 0 comments

Hi,

I love days before christmas because christmas crafting is so great fun. Today I have for you one christmas layout. It is easy mixed media layout with stunning chipboards. There is my son Toby in front of our christmas tree, I took this photo year ago.

Here are steps:

  1. I applied over whole page clear gesso (Pebeo) to prepare page for more layers.
  2. Trough stencil I applied awesome ExpandIT paste and I activated it with heat tool – it will start to grow and make bubbles and it is awesome! You can see it at one detailed photo.
  3. I stamped script stamp here and there with brown archival ink and I stamped also ScrapFX stamp – tiny stars just here and there to add interest to background.
  4. I applied over stencil my favourite Vintage photo Distress oxide ink, than I added some splatters with Shimmer gold acrylic Brusho spray and I glued gold tiny dots. That is all for background.
  5. From different scrap papers I made cluster behind photo and I glued it on page, I glued photo too.
  6. I die cut poinsettias from gold paper and bigger poinsettias from cream paper.
  7. I sprayed all chipboards wtih Brusho shimmer gold acrylic spray.
  8. Final step is to glue everything together – chipboards and poinsettias.

Love the Life You Live – A LO

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on Love the Life You Live – A LO

Hi All! Scarlett here today and can hardly believe we are quickly approaching Thanksgiving (in my country) and Christmas!! I’m looking forward to playing with my new Christmas releases when they arrive. Until then I have a LO to share featuring the Crescent Frame.

Love the Life You Live

By now I’m quite sure it is fairly obvious how much I love this little Jersey heifer since she has been featured on a lot of my projects. Don’t get me wrong, I love and adore the humans in my life; this girl simply has a huge chunk of my heart I cannot deny.

At first I had thought I would go with leaving the Crescent Frame bare considering the rest of the page was bold and bright. However, when it came down to it, I felt it needed just a few little touches. I added embossing powder, some bling and gel pen touches, along with a couple feathers from the Fancy Feather Silhouettes Small.

This is such a sweet piece to draw attention to your photo and build a page around don’t you think?

Here you can see the texture and shimmer on the frame created with the embossing powders.

One of my favorite releases ever from ScrapFX was when mini pieces first came to the line up. Over the years I’ve come to have some favorites and adding a few Seeing Stars to a project is one of them.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project; I’ll be back again soon with some merriness to share. Until then, take care! xx

Magical Times

by Kerstin-Inga Peters | Comments Off on Magical Times

Welcome!

Kerstin here and I want to share with you my latest inspiration layout.

It’s a special time when the first frost settles on leaves, it looks like a magical nature land, bizarre crystals everywhere.

That was my inspiration for this mixed media project.

used Scrap FX materials

Cresent frame

Frosty Fun

Fairytales theme Pack

and as background paper

Wishing you Peace and Joy – A gift for You Collection from Maja Designs

 some close up’s

I used a metallic acrylic paint ‘Oyster Pearl’ as basic for this wonderful dreamy

half moon frame and added

some texture with little transparent pearls and decosand

wordlet ‘Frosty fun’ was made with white embossing powder ‘ Soft fallen snow’ in the upper part and ‘Turquoise Shimmer’ in the lower part

and I must say I’m a big fan from the combination of stamps, cutting dies, distress inks

and not to forget because it’s beginning to look like christmas 🙂 or?!, some sparkle embellishments

Many thanks for your visit!

Happy crafting!

I´m on Santa´s Good List by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on I´m on Santa´s Good List by Marie Johansson

You can try and deny it – but fact is that we´re heading with full steam towards Christmas! Today I´m sharing my first Christmas themes project for Scrap FX this year. For this art journal spread I have been working with these products:

I´m on Santa´s Good List Wordlet

Circle Wave Stencil

Branches Stamp

 

I used black matte gesso as base before I sprayed two colors of shimmering mist from Tattered Angels over the Circle Wave Stencil. I love the effect the black and shimmer combined create.

To add a Christmassy feel I stamped and embossed with the Branches Stamp. I spread a little of the white embossing powder over the spread just to create a sense of snow flying around. The Wordlet got a cote of High Impact Paint to give it a festive look.

Details:

Steampunk Canvas By Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | Comments Off on Steampunk Canvas By Lynn Good

Hi, Lynn here today to share a canvas that I have created using chipboard, computer parts, buttons, metal flowers, nuts, bolts etc.  In my mind it represents the cogs that turn, the restraints and freedoms that occur whilst producing and surviving life like the tree.

I began by using a number of different stencils and Finnbair 3D gloss gel around the area I knew I wouldn’t be placing the components.  I then painted the entire canvas with black gesso.  I then began placing the computer parts and bigger piece of chipboard on the canvas.  Once I was happy with the arrangement I stuck them down with either Finnabair 3D Matte gel and Heavy Body Gel depending on how bulky the piece was.

 

Once dry I covered completely with black gesso.

then the next layer was added – this was the smaller pieces of chipboard and little details

And once dry again another coat of black gesso

It was now time for colour – I have used Finnbair Art Alchemy Paints in the Metallique, Opal Magic and Sparks Ranges.  I will list the colours below.  I finished off with some glass beads, micro beads, glass glitter and fine glitter.

Here are some close ups:

Products Used:

Continuous Chain Stencil

Polygonic Stencil

Accessory Cogs

Chains

Cog Tree

Metal and Pipe Panel

Metal Findings

  • Other Products used:
  • Tim Holtz Stencil – Measured and Mini Brick
  • Art Alchemy Paints – Metallique Royal Red, Metallique Rusty Red, Metallique Steampunk Copper, Metallique Fresh Orange, Metallique Ancient Coin, Metallique Blackcurrant.
  • Art Alchemy Opal Magic Paint  – Rose Gold
  • Art Alchemy Sparks Paint – Ginger Magic
  • Glass Beads, Micro Beads, Glass Glitter and fine Glitter.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that this canvas has inspired you in some way to get crafty 🙂
