ATC’s by Anguree

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

Hello there everyone

I’m back on the blog today sharing a couple of ATC’s I made featuring various small pieces of chipboard. It was my first ATC’s ever and if you have never tried it I can really recommend you do give them a go. They are loads of fun and super tiny so it’s a nice and quick little project you can easily finish if you only have a short time to create.

Cogs, mini

I started by cutting some kraft cardstock to 6 litte panels each measuring 2.5 x 3 inches. I then cut 6 panels of 7Dots Cotton Candy to measure 2 x 2.5 inches. Next I cut some chipboard just smaller than the paper to mat each piece of 7Dots paper to the Kraft Cardstock.

I randomly stamped each little panel using Archival Ink and added some molding paste through a stencil.

The next step was to create a little texture. The goal in ATC’S is to keep them fairly flat, however I always need a tiny bit of texture. I attempted to keep it to a minimum and to keep my embellishments to ones that doesn’t add too much  bulk.

The following picture shows how each layer was added. First I added some griptape followed by paperstrips, a doily lace and washi tape.

Next I chose my chipboard pieces and painted them with acrylic paint.

picsart_12-02-11-27-32

Once the paint was dry I selected chipboards and positioned it onto the cards. I  added some colour, micro beads and glitter to embellish the area around each piece of chipboard. Last but not least I added some phrases by Tim Holtz .

I hope you enjoyed this post and will be back soon to view more projects by my fellow design team members.

Till next time

Tiger Love…… by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 0 comments

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here,
today I want to share with you my latest project ‘Tiger Love’
img_3597a
Today I am sharing another photo from my Phuket trip last year…. this one was taken of a white tiger I saw at the Phuket Fantesea show.
Now onto how I put it all together….
img_3597c
I used the Puddles Stencil with a gold mica flake gel from Golden, to create my sparkle texture on the  background.
img_3597d
To add further texture and interest to my background, I added some stamping using the Moroccan Tile Stamp and the Scribble Circle Stamp with archival ink.
img_3597b
I used one of the 2015’s from the 2015 Year Pack and the mini Phuket I asked Jill to make for me sometime back…. I painted both pieces with some Twinkling H2O’s to match my photo and background…

 

img_3597e
As a part of my title I used the “Tiger” chippie from the Zoo Theme Pack, and painted it up with some more Twinkling H2O’s….  I also added some medium chicken wire again painted up with Twinkling H2O’s

I finished the layout off with the Love Scribble Frame again painted up with Twinkling H2O’s

Belive in Magic ; Water colour feathers by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | 1 Comment

You know those times when you find yourself in a the woods and just feel like it is a magic place. Like and elf cold be peeking out behind a tree or a dragon would pass by in a short distance. Well I found such a place in my surroundings this summer. An old cave with a really interesting story. I used a picture from the entrance of the cave when crating this layout featuring the Enchanted Tree (mini), the Bearded Dragon and the Butterfly Wing Stencil.

img_2139

I used the Butterfly Wing stencil, together with modeling paste, on both sides of my torn page. Then I used small strips of paper, leaves, buttons, doilies, lace, cheese cloth and pearls to build texture and dimension before adding my picture and the Scrap FX chipboards into place. Splatters of paint and sprayed on Glimmer Mist add extra interest.

Details:img_2140

Now to my second project today. I made a short tutorial on how to use Mists and one of the Scrap FX foam stamps to create a really cool framable print. Scrap FX has a wide range of quality foam stamps in the shop and I have used one of my top favorites for this project – the Doodled Feather Stamp.

1 – First you will need a set of mists. I have used 3 different Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels. And then off course – a Scrap FX foam stamp.

img_1420

 

2 – Use a brush to apply the mist on your stamp. Start with the lightest color and stamp it on a water color paper.

img_1421

img_1422

img_1423

 

3 – Now proceed with your next color – I picked a bright blue. Apply with a brush, and stamp on the surface. To get a shadow effect, let the stamping overlap each other a bit. 

img_1424

img_1425

 

4 – Now repeat the procedure with your darkest color. Again overlapping the two earlier stamped images.

img_1426

img_1427

 

5 – Now you can choose to make shadow around your images – I blended my mists with water and applied randomly. Then when dry splattered on the dark blue mist.

It has beautiful filigree details and creates a good contrast to the mixed media background,

which was made with some fluid acrylic paints (green, blue, lavender) 

I added some stars and butterflies stamps.

On the chippies, first I used black magic embossing powder and then for the lower parts a metalic blue pearl paint.

I added a half golden lace flower as a skirt and painted with some acrylic colors to finsh.

I used some old bookpages, maybe from an old fairytale book ?

No you cannot destroy it, old newspaper pages also work, simply roll up and stick together as a wonderful 3D frame.

Japan mini album

by Claire Barrin | 1 Comment

Dear Scrap FX fans,

Today I’ll show you (another) mini album I made on my trip to Japan.

The bas of this album is pretty much the same for this one I made earlier,  or again that one.

I mixed plain cardstock, printed papers and Scrap FX transparencies.

luckie-scrap-fx-mini-japan

On the cover I used the Tweety Bird borders, and the Fancy Number stamps to write the year.

Let’s peek on the inside.

On this double page I displayed the Tokyo chipboard.

luckie-scrap-fx-mini-japan-7

The first tranparency I used is the World Map transparency

luckie-scrap-fx-mini-japan-13

you can see here better how I decorated it with a Fancy Feathers SMALL.

I then used the Birds & Words Transparency.

Summer and Winter in the same post, by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | Comments Off on Summer and Winter in the same post, by Riikka

scrapfxnov2

Hello there! It’s Riikka here with two totally different projects! Normally I try to make the projects I do for my second monthly post fit together some how, but this time it was impossible. I just needed to use the butterflies for a spring or summer page and I really wanted to use the gingerbread houses as well. So I did a layout celebrating the lightest part of the year in Finland and two cards to be used as Christmas cards!

scrapfxnov2d1

Like I said, the layout is about summer and summer house. As the journaling stages, the cottage and summer somehow go together. We don’t spend that much time there as we are usually working while the kids spend a part of their summer there with my parents, but still it’s nice to visit it, go to sauna and see the fields moving to the breeze.

scrapfxnov2d2

I chose to go with my favorite color scheme but added some light purple or pink to the mix as well. I started the layout by stenciling the geometric pattern to the background using the “Triangles” stencil. On top of that I stamped the plants using the “Blossom Stem” and the “Leafy Stem” stamps. After drying those I then stamped with embossing ink some of the smaller butterflies from the “Beautiful Butterfly” set and embossed those with turquoise embossing glitter.

Most of the chipboard shapes in the page are painted with white gesso – the big butterfy, the two swirls and the birds. Just the hearts differ, those I treated with Liquid Pearls.

Materials from Scrap FX:

2016377 Beautiful Butterfly Stamp

2016364 Flutterby R Filigree

2016293 Tweety Bird Borders

2016328 Flourish 19 Wing

2015171 Triangles Stencil

2014197 Lots of Love

2013253 Leafy Stem Stamp

2013256 Blossom Stem Stamp

2012181 Flourish V

scrapfxnov2d4

The other of my projects is then the one which is more in the season. The winter or rather Christmas one, the two cards with the oh so cute gingerbread houses!

scrapfxnov3

I wanted these cards to be most about the lovely gingerbread houses, but added Christmas and winter touches in as well. This time I didn’t create mixed media backgrounds but used patterned papers instead. But I did use a stamp in the making. The heart beside the houses is stamped using the “Ragged Hearts” stamp and white gesso. Both of the cards also include a snowflake from the “Snowflakes A” set, embossed with white embossing powder. And then there’s the “left over piece” of the “Seeing Stars” set and in the other card two candles from the “Candles, mini” set as well.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a sweet start to the soon starting Christmas season!
