Art Journal Pages with Karen Yates

by Karen Yates | 0 comments

Hi Everyone!!  I hope you are all going ok, and are coping ok with the COVID 19 situation.  I have been pretty much at home here in Tassie, with my daughter trying to stay away from it all, and doing some art to keep us occupied.  Today’s first project is called Fearless.  I have used some rice papers designed by Michelle Logan for my page.

And of course I have a video for you so, you can see how I created this quick page. Just click on the pic below to wiz on over to the scrap FX Youtube to watch it there.

and these are the goodies I used to create this page:

For my next project, I am using what I had intended on the first, but didn’t work out LOL. Who knows how a page is going to turn out when I start! I certainly have no idea!! So I’m using some of Niamh’s rice papers, and the super cute patchwork birds, along with some foam stamps and a stencil

And again I have another process video for you to watch so you can see how I created my page:

and here are the goodies I used to create my page:

For the first time in what feels like forever, I found an hour to create.  To create and enjoy the process of getting messy fingers.   Here’s to more of that in 2022.

I have done another journal page with a super easy background.  I have torn pieces of different collage papers.  I used the Hearts and Roses, Lace B Lagoon, Lace C Sunset and the Label Phrases papers.  These have been stuck down with matte medium.

To the top I used a brayer with a little black paint and then some white, just to make it look more blended and grungy.

Some modelling paste has been added with the Text Stencil.  Over this I added some gold leaf and a few splatters of left over white paint.

The Corrugated Woman has been painted with strays and a little white paint added to the top.  For the title I cut a word from the Label Phrases collage paper.  This has been added to a piece of chipboard that I painted white.

Junk Journalling

by Amy Turner | 0 comments

Hi Everyone, happy New Year! Here’s hoping for a better 2022 even though it isn’t off to the greatest start!
For today’s project I did a few spreads in my Scrap Fx junk journal:

Junk Journal LIMITED EDITION

I had fun just playing around. I used lots of great products:

Dream transparency    Leafy Seaweed stencil

Circular Shawl stencilPolygonic stencil

Rock StarBBQ Mesh

xxxx oooo stampCircles in Circles stencil

Cogs

Wire CircleGears Double frame SMALL

as well as acrylic paint, Tombow adhesive, a word die cut, a date stamp, various stencils,
some Dina Wakley tissue, scrap paper, a piece of an airline boarding pass, a postcard,
paint markers, pencil, wash tape, some Tim Holtz stickers and metal stars, and my Dymo label maker.

The first page I did was a picture of my Mom, Dad and I the one time we’ve been able
to see each other in the past 2 years. Man I miss them but this picture makes me very happy!
My Dad hates getting his picture taken and isn’t usually smiling so this one is super great,
we all look so happy. Hit the road Omicron!!!

The next page is me! lol I don’t usually do layouts of just me but
I was feeling like a rock star in my new Prada sunglasses! lol I went to Los Angeles for the first
time and splurged. The page has a nice sunny, bright background that reminded me of California.
I could use some of that sunshine right now as we’re in the midst of winter and the coldest weather so far!

I love the next page because like my Dad my brother doesn’t usually smile in pictures. lol
I think because as soon as he does and the camera clicks he ends up with closed eyes. I took this
picture of him last year when I went for a horseback ride at the ranch he is helping out at. He
absolutely loves it and this is the greatest picture of him! I was up on the horse and I think
he was probably looking at me laughing thinking (like a typical brother) now how
ya gonna get down sucker, don’t think I’m helping you!!! lol

This pandemic has a lot of people stuck at home … and bored. lol My brother and my
youngest niece definitely were getting bored over the Christmas holidays and sent me these
funny pictures of them goofing around. Love them!

I didn’t take step by step pictures because well I suck at it but I was also just having too
much fun relaxing and playing around. I just messed about and added layers when I thought
something else was needed. Usually the best things happen when they aren’t planned
so I encourage you to just play around and not think too much about it!
Something I need to remind myself all the time!

Until next time stay safe everyone!

Hi friends!

Happy new year to you all!

I’m kicking off January with another project in the Kraft junk journal kit

In this art journal page I use a new stencil that I designed for Scrap FX .

I started off adding some black dots collage paper to the background

Black Dots collage

Then I added some colour to the background and decided on a warm colour palette.

Fist of all I added the Believe stencil to the right hand side of my page using black paint and a mini blending tool. I didn’t use too much paint on my blending tool as the stencil has very fine details and I wanted the image to be crisp, so the paint wouldn’t bleed under the stencil.

I also used the Imagine phrase stencil and added some words to the page.

Next I used the ooooxxxx stamp and added some marks to the page and also used the cross confetti stencil to add more marks to the page too.

I also used a signo uniball in white and added some drop shadows to the text from the stencil and I also added some mark making using cots in black and white.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the project in the Kraft journal.

I’ll see you all again at the end of January!

Happy arting,

love

The Graduate, by Chantale

by Chantale Gagnon | 0 comments

Hi everyone,

Today I present to you a page having as subject, my son who graduated in 2020.  

It’s with emotion that I made this creation, because it was a rather brutal end of the year with the COVID

Our graduates did not have the chance to say goodbye to their friends and teachers as they should.

I started out with a background paper that already had a big pattern,

I didn’t need to add a lot of details. I used some spray and stamps and that was it.

         

I cut out some triangles from my papers and made my layout.

I used the new chipboard gear that I embossed to give it a bit of shine.

I also embossed my title in yellow so that it is really visible. 

I finalized the page by adding some washi tape and various ornaments. A colorful masculine page as desired.

 

I hope this creation gave you inspiration, for the realization, I used the following items:

  

Have a nice day!

Happy New Year Crafters

✨✨🎇🎆

My turn up on the blog with my first post for the year.

I managed to score a few days off and I made the most of them with quiet days at home, crafting and creating in my happy place in the air conditioning.

I have a couple of projects to share with you today, a double art journal page and another single art journal page that could be a canvas.

Let’s take a look at the double page first, I started with a colour scheme that I don’t use very often, a berry/maroon, mustard, yellow, bronze combo. I also utilised the awesome new stencil from Scrap FX called Hashtag Stencil, i think it has become my new favourite. I used watercolours, inks, distress stains and distress crayons to create the colour and a gorgeous shade of buttermilk acrylic paint for the face.

If you have trouble drawing faces or are in the beginning stage, the Faces Collage paper is the perfect addition to your stash. I used one of the faces to complete this layout then created her head, hair and neck to complete the look, all you have to do is add colour then.

My second project is a quick and simple art journal page/canvas making great use of acrylic paint along with the Doodle Pattern Stamp.

To create the background, stamp and reload with colour and dry in between each layer. It creates the perfect subtle patterned background on which you can add a large focal piece. I used the Floral Window Stencil as my base then added extras to create a Mandala. Add a bit of white/black paint pen work and a nifty quote and you have a quick and simple but effective page.

Here is a handy visual list of the products I used for both projects and all the links to the shop. Head on over to the shop to have a look and ask your local scrapbook store to order your favourite pieces in !

Project Life Title Page 2022- Chrissi M

by Chrissi Mannix | Comments Off on Project Life Title Page 2022- Chrissi M

Hello Lovelies

Today I have used a 12×12 mixed media piece I made using paint and a whole lot of stamps and stencils, to make my 2022 Project Life Title page. This technique can be used for a number of things, from PL cards, card fronts, art journal pages, all sorts. And its a lot of fun to make.

Starting with a 12×12 piece of cardstock, I covered it in paint- Ive chosen Neons today.

After I had my colour down, I went in with some of my favourite stamps and stencils to add texture and details to my piece. I used a mixture of colurs and white paint for this. This was alot of fun to do, and is a great project if you want to just make a painty mess and play with your stamps, stencils and paints.

I used my 12×12 piece and cut it up to make 4×6 and 3×4 project life cards for my 2022 title page. I chose to use black and white photos so my colours would really pop.

If you want to see this come together, head to the Scrap FX YouTube Channel.

2022! – KarenJ

by Karen Jarman | Comments Off on 2022! – KarenJ

Hi ScrapFX Fans!

Karen with you today. I am starting the new year with a new Journal so I thought getting the cover page was the way to kick things off. This page is all about the layers and different depths of colour.

Here is the list of goodies I used

Circle Magic Rice Paper

Daisy Flower Stencil

Fern Leaf Stamp

Stylish Flower Stamp

Negative Numbers Stamp

I started this one with solid painted background

Fussy cut out some of the circles from the rice paper and glued them around the page and then spayed them with gloss spray ink

To give some dimension and that lumpy bumpy feel I used the Daisy Flower stencil with modelling paste

then added stamping around the page with the Fern leaf and Stylish Flwoer stamps. I used both light and dark inks to give depth to the page.

For the tile I used the Negative Numbers stamp and popped the numbers up on foam.

I don’t feel like a page is completed until I added splatters and  for the final flourish I sprayed over the entire page for gold shimmer spray!

Welcome to 2022!

I hope you have time for some creating.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

by Danielle Scholz | Comments Off on Alice in Wonderland a mixed media art journal page

Hello Lovlies,

Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and have had a lovely restful holiday, I am still on break and enjoying time away from my florist.

 Enjoying time with my family and friends. It’s been a crazy busy festive season so its nice now that the new Year has started to slow down and enjoy some time in my ScrapFx Kraft junk journal.

ScrapFX had a wonderful new release which included a lot of Alice in wonderland products so I just had to have a play with a little bit of Alice.

This is what I produced using some of the lovely Alice in wonderland themed silhouette pieces and rice papers.

As usual I have made a Youtube video of the process which you can watch here:

Here are the ScrapFX products used in this Art Journal page.

Hope you enjoyed my Art journal page and have a play with some of the ScrapFX new Alice in wonderland release.

I know there will be a few more pages of Alice in my near future

So until next time enjoy a little craft time, stay safe

and enjoy your Art journaling.
