Summer Fun by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | 0 comments

Welcome to the Scrap FX blog today! I´m here to show you my latest work with the fantastic Scrap FX products. The new chipboards from June has  a travel theme, so you will find plenty there for documenting your summer. For this layout I have been working with Summer Fun Wordlet, the Blossom Stem & the Peacock Feather Stencil.

I must say that I am totally in love with the Peacock feather stencil. It´s just so nice & will surely be my to go stencil this upcoming months. Here I used it together with heavy white gesso to create a relief pattern on the base paper. I also played around with blue Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels to create watery feeling.

Below you can see more details on how the pattern show off more with the mist running in between the raised parts.

The wordlet & flower where painted with a light coat of white gesso. Since the base paper is kraft, the chipboard in it´s natural color would not stand out as much as I would have wanted them to.

 

For this layout I used these product from the Scrap FX online store:

  • 2017206 Summer Fun
  • 2009108 Blossom Stem
  • 2013163 Peacock Feather Stencil

NOW you go shopping!!!

Winter beauty – By Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | 0 comments

Hi, Lynn here to share a layout and set of ATC cards.

Although it is winter here in Tasmania and the snow is just happening, I have a wonderful photo of snow taken by a dear friend of mine who went on holiday to Canada.

I have used 7 Dots Paper from the Writers Block Collection.  I began by applying white crackle paste through a Scrap Fx stencil – Polygonic and then applied colours using Lindy Stamp Gang sprays.

I painted the title with Glitter snow and the hash border with a Pitt big brush pen

 

I added stamping around the area of my photo and used the snowflake  stamp and Lindy Stamp Gang embossing powder to create another texture.  I then created the photo matt and added embellishments.

 

 

 Here are some close ups:

 

 

Products Used:

 

Winter Beauty

Polygonic Stencil

 

Snowflake stamp

Hash Border

 

 

For my second project I have created some ATC cards

 

I began by using the Pods Stack stencil with clear crackle paste.  Once this was dry I used Distress Oxide in Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo to enhance the colours and cut them to size.  I then inked the distressed edges with Distress Ink – Black Soot and backed them on cardstock from 7 Dots Homegrown Collection.

 

I have used the Art Pen Nibs chipboard, embellishments from the 7 Dots collection and cotton. Final splatters with watered down gesso.

Here are some close ups:

I Adore You; Dreamer Art Journal &; Video

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hi There Scrap FX Friends,

It’s Renee here and I have two very different creations to share with you.

Firstly, I created a layout using some of the July Releases.

This is a pic of my youngest Lucas.

I do love to play with funky elements on boys layouts.

Here are some close-ups:

This chipboard is Arrowlines.  I used a black stamp pad to ink it up.

I love how fine and detailed this Scrap FX silhouette Tricky Triangles – Black is.

For the finishing touch I added the Adore Words.

My second share for today is an Art Journal Layout.

This has the quote: “Because In The End We’re All Just Dreamers in An Endless Universe.”

This layout, took me about a week.  I really enjoyed playing and allowing each layer to dry.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Polygonic Stencil on the background.

I also used the Maze Circles and Scribble Circles.

Below is a process video to show you how I created the Art Journal Layout.

Thanks so much for watching, and see you next time. xx

Dreamer Art Journal Spread – tutorial by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 4 Comments

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today for a special share for Scrap FX…
A step by step photo tutorial of my “Dreamer Art Journal Spread”
Scrap FX have so many wonderful products that are fabulous not only for scrapbooking and mixed media but also for art journalling as well…
Here’s how I created my journal spread:
I began by painting my background… using Dylusions paints…
next up I started with my circles for the dream catcher…
the Scrap FX Circle Stencil is fabulous for creating concentric circles….
adding more layers…
I stamped the smaller feather from the Feather Stamp Pack using Dylusions paint… initially in one colour…. then….
re-stamped the feathers using two colours of Dylusions paint…
I applied several more coats of paint to my dream catcher…
and then painted in my string lines and began stamping my background…  I began using the Harlequin Stamp
then added more detail with the Chicken Wire Stamp and the the new Polygonic Stencil
and added even more to my background using the Moroccan Tile Stamp

 

Next I stamped my dream catcher using two of the arrows from the Arrows Stamp
I stamped around the edge of my dream catcher using the Lace A Loops Stamp, by inking and stamping only one or two little lace loops at a time to curve around the dream catcher…
Next it’s time to paint in the beads on the dream catchers strings… and add a centre piece to the dream catcher using one of the Maze Circles painted up with a couple of Dylusions colours…
I added my quote with a white pen and then started adding white pen highlights…
a final look at the completed piece…
Scrap FX products used:
Circle Stencil
Feather Stamp Pack 
Harlequin Stamp
Chicken Wire Stamp

Art – a window to the heart

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 1 Comment

Hello dear friends

I  hope you all had a wonderful crafty weekend. Today I would like to share 2 projects with you featuring some of our latest chipboard designs. You may note today’s post goes a little deeper and has a bit more heart to it than some of the others I do. Well I let you in on a secret, sometimes I just need to stop thinking and allow my hands to put my heart on paper. It’s just how I create 😉

ATC’s

Scrap FX Products used

Rectangle Collage

I started off with a scrap piece of watercolour paper and sprayed it with 13@rts spray ink. Next I added some Colour Blast Bling Paste.

I cut my chipboard piece in different parts so I could use it for all 3 ATC’s

To match the background I painted them with Finnabair Prima Alchemy Paint.

I cut 3 cards measuring 2.25 x 3.25 inches from the background I created. Next stamped each card background with Archival ink. I added some cotton and 2 of the painted chipboard pieces to each card.

Next I added my embellishments.

Last but not least I matted each card onto a black card base.

Redeemed

Scrap FX Product used

Ornate Wought Iron

I started by flicking 13@rts spray onto a white watercolour sheet and dried the spray in between the layers adding more colour as I went along.

Next I stamped the background with a script stamp and black Archival Ink.

 I then added some molding paste through a 13@rts stencil and  dried it with a heat tool.

I cut the bottom of my chipboard to “lengthen” it visually by placing it just under the photo under my embellishments.

Next I coloured the chipboard with black Archival Ink.

Once the background was dry I added some cotton and matted my photo onto black card-stock.

I covered the gap between the chipboard and photo by adding some tulle and flowers.

Last but not least I added my journalling.

Hope you enjoy it and wish you a fabulous day. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that you will visit us again soon.

Today we welcome new design team member Sharon Ziv:

My name is Sharon Ziv – also known as noomish in the different social medias. I’m 33 years old, a mother of two, and a loving wife. I moved to Cyprus from Israel at the beginning of 2016 and got this grand opportunity to have a fresh start in my 30’s. I grabbed this chance with both hands and decided to follow my greatest passion – CREATION!

Very happy to join ScrapFX wonderful DT team!

Video – layout – Winter Beauty by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 1 Comment

Next new addition to the Scrap FX design team is Kate…….

My name is Kate Dachovska and I am from Czech Republic. I live with my family in a lovely village. I love cardmaking, mixed media, scrapbooking and sewing. My big passion is colour – watercolours, watercolour markers, Copics, sprays, mists…. The best way to relax is to have dirty hands from mixed media playing.

*******

Hi it’s Kate here!   This is my first blog post for Scrap FX. I prepared for you a video tutorial. I will create winter layout. It is all about winter but I used unusual colours. It is sometimes great to step out of your comfort zone – and combination of black, red and gold is really not my cup of tea but I like the result and final design of my page. There is winter tree on the photo – I took this photo last year just with my iPhone when I was with my son for a walk in our village (I live in Czech Republic we have nice winters).

I hope you will like it. Full list of supplies you can find under video.

Have a nice day
