Steampunk Layout and a Journal Video by Misty

by Misty | 6 Comments

Hi!
Misty here to share a layout and a journal cover (and a video).
I’m still using the awesome steampunk chippies that I adore so much! It is absolutely my favorite theme of the year!

perfectly_imperfect

For the background I used the Ripples Stencil with modeling paste and Tattered Angels mists.   Then I embellished behind my photo with the funky Construction Collage chipboard.  I cut it up pieced it out so I could spread it behind my page a little.

wing_stencil

 

Then I went to town on the wings!  They were so much fun to create with the new Grungy Wing Stencil…I went to my old stand by technique using modeling paste (don’t know what I ever done before modeling paste), then I fussy cut those babies and placed them behind the picture.

ripple_stencil_cog_chipboard

 

Then, I finished it off with the Perfectly Imperfect wordlet.

The grungy (tattered looking) wings and perfectly imperfect word seemed to go well with how I felt when creating this layout.  I’m not the  typical woman who can multi task well, or be everywhere at once.  Lately, I’ve felt spread pretty thin and I’ve finally come to the conclusion that it’s ok.  I may not be that awesome mom who’s always organized and ready to go, or that crafter that’s able to juggle work, family, and creative time well…but I do have moments where I shine in each one of those things.  Plus, just ask my kids…they think I’m pretty awesome, even when I am a hot mess! ;)

Now onto the journal…

I won’t give too many details here.  Instead I have a start to finish video to share:

Fun with stamps and stencils with Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 3 Comments

Introducing new design team member:  Riikka Kovasin

Riikka-K

My name is Riikka Kovasin. I’m a mixed media style crafter from Finland with a passion to have my fingers inked on a weekly basis. They usually turn blue, which is my favorite color, but sometimes yellow, red or even green.

 

Scrapbooking layouts are my biggest passion, but I also love to create canvases, cards and recently I’ve grown an interest on ATCs. I’ve been doing layouts about five years now but discovered my passion for inks, paints and layering about two years ago. I love creating my own backgrounds, leaving my own hand print in them and making them “my own”. For me the process of creating is equally important than the end result.

 

I’m married to the love of my life and we have two sweet daughters together. We live in the capital, Helsinki near the city center. My family is a constant source of inspiration and  also the main subject on my pages.

You can find me from these sites, please come and say hi!

***********

 

Hello there! It’s Riikka Kovasin here sharing my very first post to the ScrapFX! I’m so delighted and so honored to be here!

These first projects I made using the lovely stencils and stamps ScrapFX has. There’s a big variety of them both and lots of possibilities to use them. The effect they make on the project greatly differs concerning which paint media you are using. You can go 3 D with pastes or create a watercolor like effect with mists or inks. There’s so many possibilities to choose from!

scrapfxjan1

 

Here in my first page I’ve used the Random Dots Stencil in the background with a few different media. The raised areas are made with modeling paste. I’ve also added ink through the stencil creating the dark brown patterns and lastly I used a white Sharpie to draw the circles to the background. The repeating the same shape keeps the over all appearance light even though there’s many layers and many mediums.

scrapfxjan1d2

I created my own patterned papers using the Feather Stamps with different inks. I also cut some of the feathers out of the paper and used them as embellishments. They fit the theme of the page well which is soaring with the new summer shoes.

scrapfxjan2

In this second page I used the Feather Stamps to make the background. I used acrylic paint in a few shades of blue and in white instead of ink and stamped the feathers repeatedly across the background. I also added a touch of mist through the Random Dots Stencil to the background just behind the photo.

scrapfxjan2d2

This page is made inspired by a quote I found on Pinterest. “Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.” This would apply to both of my daughters but the bluish color scheme I decided to use led my thoughts to my younger daughter.

scrapfxjan3

And of course I had to do a similar style inspirational page to my older daughter as well! The inspiration to this page was another quote I stumbled upon. “It’s through the fall that you’ll realize you can fly.” To me that’s a quote about daring, daring to take the jump to discover the wings.

scrapfxjan3d4

This time I chose to go with a pink color scheme and used again the Random Dots Stencil in the making of the background. The darker pink dots are made using ink and the sparkling lighter pink ones are done using embossing powder. I used the watercolor style stamped feathers as embellishments and add a few feather chippies from the Mini Feathers as the finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a great day!

  Hello dear Scrap FX readers,

Claire here to share some designs. but first, I wish you all a very pleasant year 2015.

***

The first design is dedicated to a dear friend of mine.

I used the diamonds chipboard to actually replace the word “diamonds”.

hello-luckie

 On my background, I used stencils and chipboards to outline some shaped with a light pencil,

hello-luckie-3

and I also filled in the palm frond stencil with orange and black felt pens. I looks a like like we have wings, doesn’t it?

item used:

Random dots stencil,

palm frond stencil,

clouds and drops stencil,

diamonds,

banners.

***

The second layout figures a picture of my daughter and me doing ‘duck faces’.

luckie-scrapFX-4

To create my background, I used the Bunch of Flowers stamp with drawing gum. I then played with watercolours before removing gently the drawing gum and outlining the flowers with China ink.

luckie-scrapFX-2

I aloso tainted in black some Fun Theme Pack chipboards.

luckie-scrapFX-3

 item used:

Fun Theme Pack,

Bunch of Flowers.

And here’s the last layout for today.

I just fell in love with this Go See Do (2014116) chipboard, but I’ve been waiting for the right picture to use it with.

I split the Go See Do chipboard in 3 pièces, and coloured each one with bright colours.

go-see-do-luckie-scrapfx

As usual, I used stencils that I outlined with a sharp pen on my background.

you can see here bits of the Freedom Saying stencil,

go-see-do-luckie-scrapfx-2

and parts of the Chevron Stencil.

ScrapFX Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout & Card

by Conghui Li | 6 Comments

Hi friends :D

Today I am sharing two projects for ScrapFX using tons of their yummy chippies, stamps, and stencils.

I made my first A4 size layout and it was a lot of fun. I went for a vintage theme for the layout. I layered lots of texture and color on the layout. Because I used red and green, its really easy for these two colors to mix and turn into a neutral color, which I let them mixed on purpose on this layout, because the color mix creates a more vintage and distressed feeling here. But for a more vibrant layout, let the two colors dry in between so you don’t get the neutral brown.

Beautiful Butterflies

by Rebecca Genet | 3 Comments

Hi there it Bec today, this month here at Scrap FX  it’s freestyle month. That means us designers get to make three projects using whatever Scrap FX products we like. I decided to make some butterfly projects because the Scrap FX’s butterfly range is gorgeous. Today I have two layouts to show you, but come back tomorrow because I’ve made a canvas with a process video to share.

Spread Your Wings and Fly

P1020425 cropped

 For my background I layered some strips for paper (all paper is from Prima’s Epiphany collection) and used some modeling paste with the Circle Weave Stencil 2014093 and Grungy Wing Stencil 2014382.

P1020439 cropped

On the chipboard pieces I coloured them with Inka Gold in Gold and Apricot, then I heat embossed them with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Golden Angel Wings.

P1020444 cropped

 I added HEAPS of flowers :) that I coated with a little gesso, plus I added some glitter and pearls to make the page sparkle.
