Adrenaline Rush….. by Cindy Porter

Hi Scrap FX fans,thanks for joining me here. Today I’d like to share my latest layout…
Adrenaline Rush

I was in a real “painty mood” when I was creating this layout… so I began with just a white cardstock and some paint… everything is a canvas right?? anyway a bit of abstract design and bam! one unique background for my layout… I tried to convey the rush of speed I feel riding, especially on my Harley with an open faced helmet… nothing compares to that adrenaline rush… hence the title lol…

I painted the title “Adrenaline Rush” to match the background colours…. gave it a bit of an ombre look…
love this new title and just perfect for my riding photos…

I added the new cranks chippies…. these are nice detailed cogs and come in several different sizes for all your “coggish” is that a real word? needs… these are from the cranks small pack

Here’s a last look at the whole page…

that’s all from me today…  thanks for visiting…

till next time

Happy Creating

Mixed media canvas by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 0 comments

Hi,

I would like to share with you today mixed media canvas. I wanted to make canvas different way –  no tons of embellishments just nice chipboards, pastes and some art stones. I wanted to show you how  easily you can create your project. Base is white gesso, than I applied Stone effect paste through stencil, I glued chipboards, art stones and I added just here and there little bit of stone effect paste. Than I covered everything with gesso. When it was dry I played with rust effect pastes and some stamps just to add more interesting to background. Mixed media can be really fun and it does not have to be expensive.

Material:

ScrapFX Round to square stencil

Grid shapes

Teen advice transparency

Prima marketing – Heavy gesso, 3D matt medium, Stone effect paste, Rusty pastes

stamps, archival ink, canvas, photo Freepik

A Trio of Projects featuring New and Old

by Scarlett Salamone | 1 Comment

Hi ScrapFX Fans! Today I have a trio of projects to share. First up a scrapbook page.

I’ve been tossing this photo around on my creative table for far too long and decided to get it scrapped when I found the You Are My Sunshine wordlet. In fact I found two LoL.

I painted the words ‘you are my’ with black gesso. Sunshine was painted in gold. The clouds were made using the Clouds B Dream stamp set and white paint over patterned paper.

I added some texture and visual movement to the background with the Chevron Stencil. It’s an oldie but goodie, need to keep it in sight for a while. 😉 The little patterned paper jean pocket made for the perfect journal tag holder. The Lace Tag Set tags are of course my favorite to use.

Another oldie but goodie are the tiny type alphas you can see all decked out in glitter above. The border piece above the letters is the new Wire Border. A bit of silver embossing powder and it was set to go!

My next project is a gift bag.

I’m not sure who gets more joy when I gift, myself or the recipient, ha! I have much fun creating unique packaging in hopes of making someone feel, well Awesome!

I have a lot of wordlets in my stash and have always thought of mostly using them on scrapbook pages, but this was one well suited for a thank you giftbag.

The background was created using a variety of stamps and stencils. Here’s a closer peek:

This Scallop Border stamp, swoon! And check out the cool funky pattern from the new Maze Stamp.

My last project is the cover to my Junk Journal. You guys this is an incredible addition to the ScrapFX product line up, pairs amazingly with all the goodies!

When I received my journal I put it together as soon as time allowed and then I stared at it, ha! Ever had that happen, blank page blahs, ugh! I finally decided to just go for it and start throwing some paint around.

Layers and layers of paint were built up and then I started stamping and stenciling. Here you can see stamps used from the Round & Round set along with stenciling through the Marking Making A Droplets stencil.

The Free Spirit Butterfly was my main inspiration for the cover. I knew it suited how this journal would be used. To alter it I heat embossed a couple different powders onto it.

The ‘free spirit’ portion and a good look at another new mark making stamp, Grids.

I hope I’ve inspired you to ‘carve your own path’ and have some creative fun!

Captured Memories

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on Captured Memories

Hey There Friends,

Who can believe it is May already?  Where did the year go?

Today I am sharing two very different projects.

One is a retro layout and the other two grunge cards.

The colours and theme for this layout begged me to use an old photo.  This photo happens to be of my brother and I having a cuddle.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Grunge Stencil with whipped spackle to add texture to the layout.

I followed that with some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide’s to bring in some colour.

I added in the Captured Memories Mini and partially inked the title to give it an aged feel.

To perfectly finish off this layout I added the Film Strips 5 Frame Silhouette.  I cut it up to add to 4 different areas on the layout.  I love to get the most out of my Scrap FX goodies.

The next project was two Grunge Cards.

I wanted to feature the new Radiant Circles Stamp for this project.  It is such a gorgeous stamp.

I used the 7 Dots Studio – Destination Unknown Collection for these cards.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Radiant Circle Stamp and Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads.  I inked stamped onto a sheet of the collections paper, then cut it out and mounted it onto the card using 3D tape, for dimension.

I then added the Triangular Silhouette.  I did cut this silhouette in the centre so I could continue the theme on both of the cards.

I finished off by added the #Wisdom Set wordless #smileoften and #seektruth.

Thank you so much for stopping by. xx

Weird Peeps Journal Spread….. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on Weird Peeps Journal Spread….. by Cindy Porter

Hi Scrap FX fans, thanks for joining me here…. today I have an Art Journal spread to share with you all…
“Weird Peeps”

So this art journal spread, didn’t end up anything like I originally planned…. I was planning on doing an abstract type design showcasing the new awesome foam stamps… but as I was stamping the background the stamp placement looked like weird little peeps… so I went with the flow and decided to make it all about the weird peeps instead…

So for my weird peeps bodies I used the new Boxed Stamp can’t you just see the stubby little arms and stubby little legs…

for their heads I used the Radiant Circles Stamp, I really love the detail in this stamp… all those inner detailed circles and lines…

for the eyes I used last months release, the Circle Marks Stamp, it has four stamps in one,

so my peeps could all have different size and pattern eyes…

Here’s some close ups of their heads and eyes…

for added texture on my background I used the new Round to Square Stencil

I finished off the spread with the She Stamp and some random text stamping…

one last look at the total spread…

I hope you enjoyed my weird peeps as much as I did creating them…
till next time

Happy Creating
