Monumental Scrap

by Claire Barrin | 2 Comments

I was deeply honoured to be invited to create again for the Monumental Scrap Exhibition in Version Scrap Paris (main scrapbooking event in Paris).

The concept is quite simple.

Scrap BIG!

Be MONUMENTAL!

So here’s my design. About 1m x 0,7m.

I used several blank canvas that we (DH and I) assembled after I decorated them.

Luckie-MS-2015SCRAPFX

I mainly used Brushos pigment and Neocolor II (and drawing gum) to decorate my backgrounds.

I then applied modeling paste through my Scrap FX stencils, and used Scrap FX stamps with black ink to decorate it.

I used tons of Leaves A Simple, stamps, Seed Stem Stamp, small and Blossom Stem Stamp with felt pens and water, or simply black ink on book pages. I used them to frame my pictures.

Flying with Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 3 Comments

Hi everyone it’s Riikka.

This month the new release is all about flying stuff – feathers, butterflies and even those lovely seed spores! I came up with two very different pages – one is light and sweet and the other one more steampunk styled and rough.

scrapfxapril1

scrapfxapril1d1

The first page is done around a photo taken last summer of my younger daughter. The butterflies and the seed spores set my mind to summer, light nights and strawberries. I used a pink color scheme and started the page by stamping hearts with a foam stamp. Instead of ink I used a Gelatos crayon with metallic shimmer. On top of the stamped background I then layered some pieces of patterned paper and used the butterfly shape in the middle of the layers.

scrapfxapril1d3

The title is done using a wonderful wordlet “Believe”. I covered the upper part of the chipboard with Liquid Pearls. The bottom part is “white washed” by using a white Gelatos crayon. The heart shaped button in the side of the photo got the same treatment. The flying seed spores got a coat of embossing powder. A few of the seeds turned white, a few pink and one pale purple.

Then to the more rough piece. This time it’s about flying and soaring of ideas and inspiration. The cicada wings had a steampunk vibe to me so I decided to use a photo of my metal embellishments as the vocal point and go with the flow. To emphasize the feeling I used a brown color scheme and added metallics and black in there.

I started the page by using the moth stencil two ways – as a mask and also as a stamp. I also stamped some hot air balloons in there and added little drawn dots to the background as well. On top I again layered the patterned papers and a load of chipboards and other embellishments.

scrapfxapril2d1

For this page I kept the chipboard shapes in their natural color as the brown natural look fitted the style well. The shade makes me think about corrugated cardboard. The other possibility would have been to turn the chippies into metal with embossing powders.

Thank you for stopping by today! Let the inspiration soar! Until next time!

The chipboard wing was also covered with shabby-effect embossing powder. After I glued it to the cover of the notebook I sprinkled it randomly with glitter.

Steampunk Curiosity; An Altered Eyeglass Case

by Katie Zoey Ho | 4 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Katie here today sharing another steampunk altered project… For this time round, it’s an altered eyeglass case… Though it’s a simple black case, I find it rather uninteresting and decided to transform it… Since I have a steampunk mobile case, why not another steampunk eyeglass case…

This time round, I’m using glitter on the chippies and build them up with more dimensions…

For these pages I wanted to make masculine pages.
For the first one I used yellow and black color with a touch of white.  I think that these colors are perfect for my photo.I used a splash of yellow acrylic paint.

Just Be

by Claire Barrin | 3 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I just fell in love with the scribbling feathers from this month novelties…

justbe-Luckie-Scrapfx

I love how delicately the words “just be” are written.

justbe-Luckie-Scrapfx-2

I used one of the new stencils (the Majestic Moth stencil) with a light pen to decorate my background,

justbe-Luckie-Scrapfx-4

and the Love Lives Here chipboard was perfect to enhance the upper side of my layout.

I wish you a pleasant day.

A Beautiful Moment…… by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 3 Comments

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today…
Today I’d like to share with you my latest layout “A Beautiful Moment
 

This photo is of my gorgeous mum on her wedding day, she was such a beautiful soul… in this pic she is with her baby sister and her best friend… I really love this photo, she looks so young and innocent, I think she looks younger than her baby sister, but don’t tell my auntie that…lol…

I wanted this layout to have a sense of elegance…. so I used the ever so elegant Damask Stencil with some Inka Gold and modelling paste… I wanted to to create a framed effect, so placed the stencil around the photo position…

 

 A Beautiful Moment, was the perfect title for my layout…. coloured up with some Inka Gold…

 I used a circle from the Scribble Circles pack, which I cut in half, behind the photo for a little extra touch of gold… once again coloured up with some Inka Gold…

I also stretched the circle out a little before adhering it…
