Numeric ATC´s & Black Butterfly Canvas

by Marie Johansson | 0 comments

Hi everyone! I´m here today to share a set of ATC´s and a dramatic canvas. I have been working with the Sketchy Numbers, Written Numbers, Alphabet Tangle, Blooming Butterfly & the Grunge Stencil.

Making ATC´s is a fun way to explore new craft techniques and truly a way of creating Art in a mini format. I love how these ATC turned out. The Grunge Stencil combined with thick gesso give the cards a background texture. Random stamping add contrast to the sprayed on Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. The chipboard pieces add a focal point to each of the cards.

Details:

 

Woking on a small canvas is one of my favourite surfaces.

I painted this canvas with black gesso and splattered on Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. The chipboard alphabet add dimension  – it was painted with yellow mist. The butterfly serve as focal point. Even though most of the canvas is black, small amounts of color make the chipboard pieces really pop.

Hello everyone

Wow it feels like forever, but I have been on a short little holiday to Thailand. I have already been back at work for 2 weeks and today I would like to share this layout with you.

Scrap FX Products used:

Steampunk Penny Farthing

Mini blossom spring

Life and Times Transparency

Arrow C Graphic

Grunge Shape C

Cogs mini

I have been in a bit of a grunge mood and added all my favourite steampunk pieces with one of the beautiful new arrow chipboard pieces.

I sprayed my chipboard with #13arts spray and sponges with #13arts paint. I also added tiny bits of rust powder.

Last but least I colored my chipboard flowers with #13arts paints and added a couple of #13arts wordstrips and 3 tiny flowers from 49AndMarket to go with the stunning 49AndMarket background paper.

I hope you enjoyed your time here and that you have been inspired to create this weekend. Don’t forget to check out all the gorgeous new Scrap FX products in the store.

Till next time , happy scrapping.

New Junk Journal and scrapbook layout… by Lynn

by Lynn Good | 1 Comment

Hi Everyone, Today I am super excited to show you the new junk journals available at Scrap FX

above is the nature kit which shows what is included in each pack – the transparency and cuts outs change depending on the pack.  For this sample I have used the Construction kit –

I have used dylusion paints, Dina Wakley paints,  gelli plate and stencils to create my background.  I have then added some black stamping, stencilling and paint pen marks.

I have created this journal with the intention of using it to write down about my days and things around me – it could be a big write or jotting down things I need to remember.  Once this signature (junk journal) is complete I will add another different cut out journal to create a second signature so I will end up with a thick journal consisting of a number of signatures for the year.  I will come back and show you more.

Here are some close ups:

Products Used:

Explore the Untaken Path

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hi There Friends,

I have had so much fun with all the goodies released from Scrap FX this month.

This layout is no exception.  As a matter of fact I used 6 different products on this one!

I spent a big amount of time on the background in this layout, then added layers, and embellishments.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Maze Stencil and texture paste on the background.

The Scribble Stamp is awesome!!!  You can use it two ways, which is fantastic.

The Title is Explore the Untaken Path.  I painted the Explore word with Distress Oxide and the Untaken Path is just inked with Staz On – Jet Black.

The finishing touches are the Number 1 from the Sketchy Numbers chipboard pack and the BBQ Mesh.

I did also use the Honeycomb Stamp, just lightly in some areas on the page.

Here are all the products used:

I hope you have been inspired.

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx

Canvas and cards by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 0 comments

Hi,

I would like to share with you two projects today, romantic canvas and cards.

Canvas is very easy I applied Paper paste with Mark Makinb B Vees stencil. Than I lightly sprayed background with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists sprays and used white gesso to light it. At photo there is my hubby and our puppy sharpei Dobby (it is almost 2 years ago). I fussy cut many roses from Prima paper. At background there are chipboards – Sketchy triangles and Flourish L diamond – which I heat embossed with white embossing powder, the same I did with sentiment Imperfect Photos Perfect Memories.

 

For my cards I used the newest Prima Marketing papers. I made longer very layered cards. For their background I used Mini Flourishes chipboards which I heat embossed with white embossing powder. I like tiny chipboards they add even more interesting to my projects.

Have a nice day

Kate

It’s the Little Things

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on It’s the Little Things

Hi Everyone! Scarlett here today with a few little projects that I hope will pack a powerful punch of joy when received!

Our farm has grown to the point we have oodles going on and some pretty fabulous people supporting us. I try to be conscious of making sure thank yous are received in some form and people know how important they are, but I fall short. So I make tags! Lots and lots of tags to attach to farm gifts.

This tag began by using some ink through the new Mark Making A Droplets stencil. The release this month is a stupendous match for tags. My heart does pitter patter for all things little…

A variety of paint was added using a baby wipe and sponge.

Next some stamping was added using two of the stamps from the Round & Round set.

To offset the dark background white paint was dabbed through the Mark Making D Random stencil.

To finish off the tag: paint pens were used to add additional random marks and outline stencil marks, sticker added, and embellished with a Seeing Star chippie along with sequins.

A closer look.

Besides the numerous people I need/want to thank, I have weekly egg customers. While farmlife may not allow me to doll up every carton, I do think something fancy & fun every now and then is called for!

The Scallops Border stamp, used on this tag,  rocks my world people! That is all.

Again, Scallop Borders stamp, rocks world, tags made in minutes!!! Winning!

How fun would this be to get in the mail??! I’m hoping y’all think extremely because it’s about to head out! I’ve been wanting a quick and easy way to decorate packaging but nothing seemed to pop out, until this release. Perfect little stamps and stencils that take a quick dab of paint.

Shall I say it one more time?? You know Scallop Borders stamp = JOY! 😉

Take care until next time!

Products Used:

Scallop Border stamp

Round & Round stamp

Mark Making A Droplets stencil

Mark Making D Random stencil

Clouds B DREAM stamp
