Blowing bubbles

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

 

Dear readers,

Claire here to share some designs with the new products.

My first layout was inspired by the Blowing Bubbles chipboard.

bubbles-luckie-scrapfx

     On the background I stamped a few times the Letter & Number Rings stamps with Rainbow like colours (I used waterbased felt pens) to remind the bubbles od the pictures.

I also added some bricks from the Brick Stencil that I just outlinedwith a black pen.bubbles-luckie-scrapfx-6

I tainted the Blowing Bubbles chipboard again with Rainbow colours and had a little black at the edges.

Among the novelties from this month are the new #French words. They are just so perfect for me.bubbles-luckie-scrapfx-3

*****

The second layout is really different as the background is essentially worked with medium gel and watercolours.

I applied a thick layer of medium heavy gel, then made a “print” with the chipboards before letting it dry.

Once it has dried, I added heavy watercolours on the “printed” parts and underlined it partially with a black pen.

And finally, I used the Engineer chipboard that I tainted in black as a part of my title.

Two Playtime Fun Layouts by Riikka

Hi there Scrap FX fan! It’s Riikka here to share a couple of layouts with you using the latest collection with different trades. The other page is about the love of machines and the other one about a young scientist.

scrapfxaug2d0

For the layout on top I documented some step photos while I was working on the page.

Like in all my pages I started by making a mixed media inspired background. For this piece I used washi tape, the “House and Home” stamp and the “Brick” stencil. The words are stamped using Archival Ink and the bricks are made with Modeling Paste.

Next I added some mist on top and then made the paper layers behind the photo. I also attached a film strip to the page with staples.

Next it was time to attach some of the embellishments. I embossed the crane, the semi-trailer and the dozer with yellow embossing powder and added them to the page. I also added a word sticker on top of the film strip.

Then it was time to finish the page with some more embellishments and details. I added one of the words from the “#French” set to the upper left corner, the title on top of the film strip and a couple of stickers here and there. I also added a flair button and a couple of stars to the page.

scrapfxaug2d1

The topic is my daughters’s love for heavy machinery. Even they both like their princess dresses and glitter, both have been intrigued from an early age with cranes, trucks and tractors. I could have done the page from either of my daughters, but I chose to go with my younger one as she’s more into gadgets of all sorts.

2016260 – Brick stencil

2011151 – Film Strips

2016237 – Crane and Bobcat

2016236 – Cement Mixer and Semi-Trailer

2016235 – Backhoe and Dozer 

2016258 – #French

2014238 – Seeing Stars

With this other page I did something special – and used a white cardstock as the background instead of a patterned paper. But I still carried on with quite similar steps like in the first page – first build a mixed media background, then added my photo and layered papers and then the embellishments.

scrapfxaug3

For this page I started by adding some watercolors to the cardstock. On top I then stamped the words using the “House and Home” stamp and watersoluble oil pastels. On top I then created a pattern using the “Art Deco” stencil and Modeling Paste. After it had dried I then added my layered papers and photo. I mixed a piece from the “Vocational” transparency in the layers also.

I used the “Scientist” chippie as my main title but added a word from the “#French” set in there as well. The embelishments include a light bulb from the “Light Bulbs” set and some “Microbes”, all colored black. As the finishing touch I added some doodled circles here and there using the “Random Dots” stencil as my guide.

scrapfxaug3d1

Where the first page was about my younger, I made the other page about my older daughter. Like in the first page, I could have done this page about both of them, but they are very different scientist types, my girls. Where as my younger is more hands on (“I wonder what will happen if I push this”), my older is more of a philosopher and physicist (“I probably will figure out what will happen if that is pushed if I ponder it for a while”). One of her favorite things to ask and think about when she was younger was how rain and thunder works, that’s why I chose to go with that picture.

Play….. by Cindy Porter

Hi Scrap FX fans, thanks for joining me here…

Today I am sharing my latest project “Play…

neice1
Another layout of my niece….. she’s such a little character…
neice2
for my title I used the “Play…” wordlet…. I love this saying what a fabulous way to live life…

I used the new Nieces mini word from the Relatives theme pack and chopped off the “s” for this layout… doesn’t it look fabulous painted up with Twinkling H20’s and a little bit of Vivid True Silver for added highlights…
I sat the mini title on top of the small Nautilus shell… which was also painted up with the glorious Vivid True Silver…

neice 6

For my background along with my stamping and Twinkling H2O’s I also used one of my favourite stencils the Random Dots Stencil along with the Circles stencil for my crackle paste…

Mixed Media Cards by Anguree

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

Hello dear friends

I’m back, and as promised I have 3 mixed media cards to share, or two cards and a tag if you want to be more specific.

ScrapFX Products used:  Art Deco stencilFlourish YChickenwire HeartScribble Sentiments

PicsArt_08-15-07.23.34

PicsArt_08-15-07.31.50

 I started with cutting out 2 tags out of 7 Dots Paper. Yet once I chosen a matt for them it occurred to me that the tags would look gorgeous as a cards, so I steered away from the original plan.

PicsArt_08-15-07.27.28

PicsArt_08-15-07.29.28

Next I added some Colour Blast paste using the Art Deco Stencil. I chose to do a light and a dark card rather than doing two of the same.

PicsArt_08-15-07.34.07

PicsArt_08-15-07.37.58

Once the paste was dry, I added some grey stamping to the light card and white stamping to the dark card.

PicsArt_08-15-08.19.28

Both tags were attached to the matting pieces using pieces of chipboard between the tag and tag matts to create texture.

PicsArt_08-15-08.07.29

PicsArt_08-15-08.06.00

Next I  added a small piece of vintage lace to each card.

PicsArt_08-15-08.08.37

PicsArt_08-15-07.35.52

I needed a Matt for each group of embellishments and decided to spray 2 doilies with the same colours of Colour Blast shimmer spray as the pastes I used.

PicsArt_08-15-08.10.03

PicsArt_08-15-08.14.25

Once dry, I started laying out my chipboard pieces on the card.

PicsArt_08-15-08.17.08

PicsArt_08-15-08.12.39

(You will note that I changed the original chipboard design  to separate the words from the scribble circles they were embedded in. I also cut the chicken wire mesh from the heart. So don’t ever be scared to cut your chipboard to suit the purpose of your project.)

PicsArt_08-15-08.17.08 PicsArt_08-15-08.18.26

I prepared them with gesso and embossed in similar colours as the pastes. Yet I later decided to paint my  words with silver instead to highlight it more.

PicsArt_08-15-08.20.54

I adhered a couple loops of string and flowers to the left of each card. Next I adhered the chipboard, a couple of feathers and some enamel dots.

PicsArt_08-16-09.20.25

PicsArt_08-16-09.15.04

I matted both cards onto white card bases, but it still needed something extra so I decided on some pink paint splatters.

PicsArt_08-15-08.32.06

The tag was created in in same fashion,  except I added paint splatters as soon as the paste was dry.

PicsArt_08-15-07.44.41

I then added the embellishments and leftover chipboard pieces in a similar way to match the other 2 cards.

Well I hope you enjoyed visiting the blog today and look forward to your input and thoughts on it.

Please stay tuned for more projects by my fellow design team members and be sure to visit us again.

Till next time, have fun creating.

GUEST DESIGNER: Laura Gilhuly PART TWO

Laura is back today to share two more layouts.

 * MOMENTS *

moments

Mojo hit me at night to create my next layout so I could not take photos of my process…..but the end product is a lot of fun!

I used the Anchor and Chain, Shells, and the phrase Moments To Remember.  To alter them I used ‘Squeezed lemonade’ distress ink and dandelion yellow embossing powder and Prima Opal Magic pink- blue.

moments1

I did some wet distressing by trimming the papers then spraying them with water, crumpling them into a ball, then laying them out.  I tucked the chipboard shells in the layers, and I added the anchor and chain.

 momentsf

momentsh

This was a fun and cheery layout to create!

My final project I wanted to create another grungy feeling project…

For this one I used the ‘together is a wonderful place’ to be wordlet and the art deco flourish.

I started by covering the  chipboard with gesso, then I used the Brusho colours in Burnt sienna and olive green.
together1

I sprayed each piece with water…..added the brushos, then spritzed with more water to create the grungy look I wanted.

*TOGETHER IS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE *

The chipboard turned out pretty cool…..

I altered some cheesecloth with the brusho’s and tucked it in here and there then added some gold pearls to it and the flourish………done!

 

 

Thanks Laura for your gorgeous layouts, and playing with Scrap FX products!

Provence layout by Julia

by Julia Kissel | Comments Off on Provence layout by Julia

Hello,

I’m back with a new tender layout for you.

This work was ordered as a present for a woman  who loved French Provencial.

I have been experimenting, and created the page in a custom size A4  (8,5 х 11 inches)

Then I put it in a wooden frame and we got the perfect gift.

The dried flowers, chamomiles, butterflies,

 chipboards Field of Flowers (2012178)

 and stamp Field of Flowers (2013258)

 made my work romantic and tender.

 The huge chipboard I have divided into several parts. And I still have leftovers for other works.

.

Chipboard covered by acrylic crackle paint and sprays,

and the wordlet Those were the Days (2016150)  also covered with the same crackle acrylic paint.

Thanks for watching!

Have a good time!
