I started with basing the pages with white gesso. Then I applied stamping ink trough the lace stencil on one page, then flipped it over with the other side up and applied ink on the other side. That way I got a mirror effect. I thought it would be cool that some of the pattern would be raised, and to archive that I stamped with a clear embossing pad trough the stencil and then sprinkled over embossing powder.
I sprayed my Scrap FX heart chipbards with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and when dry I applied them to one side each. The Heart Flowers got a cote of sticky medium and a sprinkle of golden micro beads. As the pages needed some sort of sentiment I added the Forver Mine Wordlet, after giving it a coat of golden acrylic paint.
Some random stamping and splatters with Mist gives the spread a nice touch.
In my first layout I started by adding some molding paste through the lace stencil onto @13arts patterned paper.
Next I splattered it with white acrylic paint and added some random stamping using black Archival Ink.
As you can see I chose to cut out the inside of the larger chipboard heart to use with my embellishment clusters. I prepared the chipboard with gesso and embossed with light peach and pink embossing powder. Unfortunately it looks white due to the florescent light in which the photo was taken.
The chipboard words were painted with Finnabair Prima Acrylic paint.
Last but not least I added my embellishments and journaling strips.

Hello Scrap Fx fans! Amelie with you today to present you my first layout of the month!
I started my layout with a paper from the company Ruby Rock it !. I applied a layer of clear gesso on my entire page. I started playing with the stamp “Fond 03” by MC Collection. I then, using a spatula, laid a little Texture Paste – White crackle and White sand. For the color, I used the magical powder “Cotton Candy”, “Coffee au lait” and “Dark Chocolate Truffle”from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. Before I left dried, I sprinkled some Prima Marketing Stone Arts Mini.
As chipboards, I used “Forever Mine” and “Mini Bouquet”. On the chipboard “Forever Mine” I used the embossing powder “Geranium Coral Blush” from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. The chipboards “Mini Bouquet” were left natural.
I completed my layout by adding a die cut from Prima Marketing, bits of old lace doily, a 7Dots Studio tag and a cut of a punch from Ek Succes. A few flowers of Wild Orchid Craft and a badge have come finalized all!

Greetings from the North of Sweden! I´m here today to share an idea for an alternative use for your Scrap FX Chipboards. I really love the Fob Watch Butterfly & the Steampunk Seahorse but had trouble finding the perfect project for them. Then I came up with the idea of just hanging them up in a string in the window.
Well, I did not actually “just” hang them in the window. As a true crafter I had to do a little “job” on them first. A couple of layers of metallic paint, crackle paste & gem stones add that extra flair to the hangings.
I painted the butterfly by using my finger tip. I find using a brush is difficult since the paint will find it´s way into all the delicate gaps in the chipboard and clog them up. The finger works perfect (If you don´t care that you go to work looking like a painter the day after…).
The sea horse has two “layers” of chipboard. I painted the smoothe horse with blue paint and then added crackle paste and left to dry over night. When safly dry I added the gear “top” that I first painted with gold & copper paint. I used the same “finger” technique this time. The gem stones looks perfect as eyes, and I love the fine, fine detailing on the seahorse.
I hope I inspired you to try different ways of using your Scrap FX Chipboards. I will surely do this again, loved the result!
