Girly Steampunk

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hi There Friends,

Today I would like to share with you some Girly Steampunk.  Just to mix it up a little.

I will be using the Steampunk new releases, but going with some more feminine colours.

My first share is a layout I created.

I tried to keep the colours Pink, Black and White with a touch of Gold.

Here are some close-ups:

Here you can see that I used the Honeycomb Stamp to provide a border around the entire layout.

I turned the Suspended Time Chipboard sideways to go under the photo.

Then I added the #fantastic from the #surreal Chipboard pack.

Here you can see the Steampunk Key Corner Chipboard.  I love this.

I also cut out a Light Bulb from the Light Bulb Transparency.  You get 9 different Light Bulbs on the 1 sheet.

Then I finished off by using the Capture the Moment Title.

My second share is a Steampunk Tag.  Once again with feminine colours.

I used a sheet of Corrugated Chipboard for the tag.

Here are some close-ups:

Firstly, I adhered all the elements down on the tag.

I then covered everything with white gesso.

And then added layers of colour.

Here you can see the Steampunk Contraption Chipboard, Light Bulb Transparency and #surreal Chipboard.

The BBQ Mesh chipboard appears at the top and bottom of the tag too.

Thank you so much for stopping by. xx

Hi everyone, today I’d like to share my latest creations for Scrap FX with you all…

First up I have a layout “Extraordinary”

This layout is of a great pic of my hubby while we were out on our bikes one day…
I created this layout on white cardstock and painted it up with tons of layers of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, till I was happy with the background…

I used the title #extraordinary from the #surreal theme pack for my title…

I used the steampunk contraption to embellish my layout…. I cut it into two and put it either side of the photo on the layout…
I also used the newly released Geometry Stencil on my background with some modelling paste… it’s an awesome stencil, great patterning…

more of the Geometry Stencil….

One last pic of the whole layout…

Next up I have another layout to share “Girl Power”…


another layout featuring my gorgeous niece Tilly…. such a strong personality…
for this layout I used the newly released Gorjuss stamps and then painted them up using Twinkling H2O’s (Twinks)… love my Twinks… I also did a pale wash around the stamped girls with Twinks…

I used the new Honeycomb Stamp over my washed background…

I used the new BBQ mesh… which I am in love with let me just say… and I cut small pieces off to form little kisses…

 For my title I used the Girl Power from the Girl Stuff Theme Pack…. a miniature version of the original Girl Power wordlet…

One last look of the overall layout…

hope you enjoyed these projects…

till next time
Happy Creating

Canvas BE BRAVE by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 0 comments

Hello,

Happy New Year!!! I am wishing you with little bit delay because this is time of my first blog post for 2018. And because I would like to make more canvases this year I decided start now. This canvas was really challenge for me because I never did steampunk canvas. I had that photo (source Freepik) quite long time and new release for January was great to start with steampunk crafting. It is not complicated project. The first layer as usually is white gesso, than I applied structure paste through new stencil. Than I glued different embellishments and art stones which made awesome structure. I did some stamping and the main part was playing with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists in combination with pastes from Finnabair – Rust paste. Final splatters are made with Ecoline white watercolour and sentiment is by Tim Holtz. Whole list of material is at the end of my blog post.

 

 

Have a nice day

Hello Scrap FX Fans! Amelie with you today to present you my first creation of 2018 for Scrap FX. I take this opportunity to wish you a very beautiful year 2018, a lot of health and happiness !!!

Here is my creation! When I saw the chipboard “No photos please” I immediately thought of my daughter !!! Every time I want to take a photo, it’s a bick, she hates it! On my chipboards, I started with a layer of black gesso, then use the metallic wax Prima Marketing.

Lighting It Up in 2018

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on Lighting It Up in 2018

Happy New Year ScrapFX fans!! Scarlett here to share my first project of the new year and my one little word for it.

For the past couple years I have joined along with many others in choosing one little word to guide my thoughts, intentions, creativity, and more throughout the year. This year I was led to word light and I’m extremely excited to see how this word works throughout my life in 2018!

Let’s take a look at how this journal cover came together:

It is winter time in my parts so please forgive the off coloring of late night creativity step out photos. 🙂

Step One: Choose some colors of paint and apply randomly all over. I used my fingers and brushes to do this.

Step Two: Dab some paint onto the Honeycomb Stamp and pounce on to background.

Step Three: Pounce black paint through the Zebra Circles Stencil onto selected areas of background. Add glitter glue with fingers to select areas.  *Note – I cut a portion of the stencil a part to have an isolated strip.

Step Four: Paint a golden glowing area for light bulbs to sit on. Wrap wire around Light Bulb Frames tops and adhere to cover. Add star confetti to inside of bulbs. Add lettering and additional doodles using paint pens.

Here are a few close ups:

I will admit Steampunk is a tough theme for me to work with but give me all the light bulbs, LOL! I enjoy incorporating these into my work and look forward to playing with the other light bulb releases later this month.

Looking forward to playing with the Zebra Circles stencil more too!

While I may not have the whole Steampunk thing down just yet, I do enjoy the grunginess and different color palettes it inspires in my work. So, if you’re like me, and have a tough time with the Steampunk theme, I encourage you to allow it to inspire your creations in a way that moves you!

Until next time, take care!!

Time for 2018 Art Journal Spread

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Time for 2018 Art Journal Spread

Happy New Year Creative Souls! My journey with the Scrap FX Art Journal continues in the new year and this month I have used the Petal Pattern Stencil together with the Steampunk Key Corner & “extraordinary” from the #surreal wording set.

I love that you can use the Scrap FX stencils so many ways. You can use them to mist over, to create pattern, so draw around etc. I used two techniques on this spread. First I applied heavy white gesso trough the Petal Pattern stencil to create texture. Then when dry I used a sponge and black stamping ink to create the black bold pattern. I don´t care that the pattern is a bit “broken” that gives more character and interest in my meaning.

The Steampunk Key corner is really beautiful and I wanted to use it on a project that would let it stand a bit for itself. I found it to be perfect in on corner of my spread. I followed up the metallic pink splatters with painting the chipboard piece in the same color. Makes it really pop.

I had the intention to paint the #surreal wording as well, but decided it would look better natural – love how it turned out with the black text strip above.

 

Products from Scrap FX:

  • 2012154 Petal Pattern Stencil
  • 2017380 Steampunk Key Corner

So what is your creative vice during 2018?

Leave us a comment – we would love to know!

Until next time!

Steampunk Travel Album

by Lynn Good | 1 Comment

Hi everyone, Lynn here to share a steampunk project I created using the suitcase available in store.

I started by placing the pieces randomly around the layout giving a general idea of where I wanted things to go.  I then photographed this so I could use it as a reference later.

I then used a cogs stencil and gloss gel medium on the flat surfaces.

Once dry I glued down all my pieces and then I covered everything in black gesso.

I then started adding colour using Finnabair Acrylic Alchemy Paints and Art Sparks Paints.  Final touches were added with Finnbair waxes.

Here are some close ups:

Below is a list of the products that I have used:

Suitcase (Travel Album)

Steampunk Heart

Fractured Time

BBQ Mesh

Accessory Cogs

Limited Edition

Numbers

Hash Bits

Thanks for stopping by and til next time Happy Crafting 🙂
