‘Perfection is Overrated’ by Elisa Ablett

Hi Scrap FX Fans!

My turn up on the blog today with my latest projects for Scrap FX.

Today I have a couple of mixed media art journal pages to show you and they both feature loads of awesome Scrap FX products, Colour Blast Inks and Gold Foiling.

Let’s take a look at the 1st page called – Perfection is overrated….

I started the page with collage paper in the background and then I added white gesso, yellow paint and the Scribble Faces collage paper as my base.

I then added Colour Blast Inks, stamping with Scrap FX Loopy Bloom Stamp as a crown, a border of numbers and crosses/lines stamp to add grungy details.

The gold foiling around the face and under the crown to add that bit of bling and sparkle. Not perfect though!

The second page I have to show you today is titled –

‘Let the beauty of what we love be what you do’

For this page I started with lovely watercolour ink background with some white negative spaces.

I then stenciled with black ink over the top to create the palm tree fronds, giving a tropical look to the page.

The beautiful flowers I fussy cut from the Collage Sheet and i adhered them to the page along with some gold foiling.

Add some fancy stamping along the edges and some large grid lines with a pen and ruler plus your title.

I love how this page turned out, it reminds me of a tropical garden!

Let’s take a look at the products from Scrap FX listed below –

Journal Page by KarenJ

by Karen Jarman | 0 comments

Hi ScrapFX creatives

KarenJ sharing with you today. I have just had a creative weekend away and feeling so inspired right now.

The brand new Junk Journal Kit Kraft was the perfect jumping off point for a new journal page.

I don’t use Kraft very much and when I do I often cover it up entirely, I decided to wanted to keep this one showing the Kraft component and using subtle colours and lots of white. White looks so good against the Kraft!

I couldn’t go past using the Heart Girl by Claire Stead collage paper either and focal point along with part of the Dream Phase stencil which I spread with white modelling paste.

To add the subtle tones of colour I sprayed paint across the top of the page and allowing the paint to drip down the page.

A journal page cant go without a little bit of stamping so I added some random touches around the border of the page using the  Cursive Writing and Damask Diamond stamp

I really love how this turned out!

A few more close-ups!

I hope you get some creative time this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Art Journal Pages with Karen Y

by Karen Yates | 0 comments

Hey Everyone,

Its Karen here with you today to share 2 projects I have created for this here blog post! First up I am using the new super cool corrugated women & co, well first page is using the fantastic bookish paper one!!  I have also used a couple of the white birch branch silhouettes, stamps, stencils and collage paper.  You can see the list below on what I used.

I also have a very short and sweet video for you to watch my process on how I created the above page! Just click on the picture below to whiz off to the Scrap FX youtube channel to watch, whilst your there, please like and subscribe if you haven’t already!

Here is the list of goodies I used to create my first project:

For my 2nd project, well its continuing from the first, as I am working in my Large Journal, one side of my book as the above project and the other this one.  I wanted to page to be different, but also flow on from the opposite page. So I have used some of the same products again to make a complementary page. I have used the rest of my white birch tree silhouettes, and another corrugated woman & co – but this time the actual corrugated chipboard! I’ve used the same family kraft words, but the segment stamp instead of the stencil, a different couple of stencils and a brand new one to bring all this together.

And of course the video to watch my process, just click on the picture below to go off and see it!

And the products used to create my second Project:

Hi everyone

Elisa here from the design team with my latest project, a sweet mixed media scrapbooking layout.

I started with a base of water colour on the left hand side, then using the Palm Frond Stencil I added a inky layer of Palm Fronds. I then kept to the lovely pastel colours by adding light green stamping with Leaves (A).

Add in a bit of torn Street Lines Collage Paper and splatters of black and pink ink.

The main focus is the beautiful Art Nouveau Dragonfly chipboard which I embossed using multiple different pastel powders to give a multitone effect. I love that it is a pretty, delicate and feminine embellishment for my page.

Here is a great close up of the chipboard.

Another thing that I added was a few squares from an Art by Marlene Embellishment paper pad, which i sewed to a cut off strip of paper from the bottom of a patterned paper, it makes a great unique embellishment for my page.

Here are the products used from Scrap FX along with the links to find them –

Hi, another journal page for me to share.

Acrylic paint on the background with the Pod Stacks Stencil popped on there in black.

I’ve also used the Starstruck Stamp on my background with a little gesso.

The Little Poppets Transparency has been painted with white gesso on the back and a Paper Crown has been painted and trimmed to fit the poppets head.

The title has been cut from the Family Kraft Words.  Under this is some trim cut from Happy Houses by Michelle Logan.  The heart above the title has also been cut from this.

Ray of Sunshine by Amy

Hi Everyone!

For this project I used a little wooden canvas panel and a few Scrap FX goodies.

Segment Circles stencil

Ladders Stencil

Little Poppets Transparency

Grunginess Collage

I also used some acrylic paints, gel matte medium, stamps, archival ink, glue and a few of  my favourite die cuts.

I started by picking a couple of great rice papers, I ripped a piece off and applied it to the wood panel with gel matte medium.
I then cut out one of the cute poppets and put her on a piece of white card stock with gel matte.

I went to town adding some paint to the wood panel with stencils and in some cases just with my finger. lol
I also added a few library card stamps for pattern and contrast with black archival ink.

while that was drying I grabbed a few die cuts that are some of my favs, one from altenew, one from paper roses and one from simon says stamp.
The circle rays and rainbow. I also grabbed a piece of old painted paper that was left as a frame and figured I’d use it up.
I assembled how I thought it might go together. I added some paint to the poppet, her crown that I had stamped and coloured the rainbow.

and then I glued it all down and added a quote with my label maker. Isn’t she a freaking ray of sunshine?!?! 🙂

Keep well everyone!

Creating the ScrapFX junk journal

by Claire Stead | Comments Off on Creating the ScrapFX junk journal

Hi!

I really have no clue where this year is going! It’s disappearing so fast!

I’m here with a fun post, playing with the new Scrap FX Junk Journal and then creating a fun, colourful cover.

The junk journal is full of lovely Kraft substrates, all different sizes, textures and some are patterned too.

It’s super easy to put together- the cover is made from corrugated card, I chose to put the corrugated part facing inside. To create the cover I chose a warm colour palette and finger painted rose type shapes on the whole cover. Then I used the Take your time stencil and one of the chipboard women from the  Corrugated women and Co pack.

Check out the process video to see how I put the journal together and then decorated the cover, click on the image below to head straight to the Scrap FX YouTube channel.

Here is a list of the ScrapFx goodies I used in this project

Thanks for looking- I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did!!

Scrappin up a storm- Chrissi M

by Chrissi Mannix | Comments Off on Scrappin up a storm- Chrissi M

Hello Lovelies

Since getting back into my art room, I have been scrapping up a storm. I have 2 layouts to share with you today.

In my first layout, I have made my background using thick swipes of paint, and then some of my favourite stamps in black paint. I love adding bright colours with bold black details in my background for contrast.

This was a rather simply embellished layout- focusing alot on the mixed media background. I added a chipboard fram to highlight my photo and added a small cluster in one corner.

For second layout, I decided to play with spray ink and a stencil for my background, But probably not in the way you’re thinking.

One of my favourite ways to use a stencil, is to spray it with ink, and then stamp it onto my background. It’s a great way to get extra use out of your stencil.

I used two complimentry colours of ink to spray my stencil, then stamp it onto my card stock. I adore how this turned out- and this stencil is absolutely fabulous. Then I came in with those favourite stamps of mine again, this time with matching coloured paint, to add interest to my background.

Products Used

Number Party Stencil

Ripples Stencil

Crosses & Strokes Stamp

Crazy Circles Stamp

In & Out Circles Stamp

Triangle Collage Stamp

I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from my layouts

Happy Scrappin
