Inspired by Chippies, Flowers, and Feathers

by Scarlett Salamone | 0 comments

Hi ScrapFX Peeps! Scarlett with you today to share my last projects for this month. First up a LO on wood canvas.

The moment I saw the Love This Kid chippie I knew I had to do a project with a goat kid on it. Yes I have two people kids I adore and love greatly, but again I have two and since this chippie is singular in nature my favorite goat kid born here at the farm had to be featured.

I’m normally not a big flower person when it comes to my creations, at least in the pre-made sense, not sure why since I have a large stash of them. It seemed the perfect time to use them for this project however and indeed I did. I also put to use some of my ScrapFX stamps to create other floral elements.

Stamping on vellum is a favorite technique of mine. I use Archival ink and the ScrapFX stamps lend themselves beautifully to be fussy cut. The Seed Stem Stamp, Small was heat embossed. Most flowers on this project were plain; a bit of sparkle and paint here and there jazzed them right up.

 

Here you can see the stamped flowers closer. Doesn’t embossing on vellum turn out beautifully? The background here was created using Black Lava through the Brick Stencil, as I did on a previous project. I enjoy the change up it gives to the patterned paper background. I have way more patterned paper than a reasonable person should, I must use it!, but I like doing my own little spin if I can. ūüėČ

My next project is an art journal page.

I haven’t done a journal page in a good bit of time. I felt rusty but the desire to paint freely was strong. This is the beginning of my page: random paint swipes, brush strokes of color, stamping with ink using the new Grungy Brickwork Stamp, and adding a bit of texture by using heavy gesso to stamp with the Star Spangles Stamp.

The next thing I did to work on completing this page was to stamp the Doodled Feather Stamp. I wanted the feather to be unique in nature but not overdone. I decided to use VersaMark paired with mica powders. To do this I: stamped the image with VersaMark, brushed on mica powders, and heat set. The overall finish has shimmery finish throughout as you can see in the top portion of the picture.

This chippie is what inspired this page in my head, it works well for a journal page don’t you think? To alter it I: inked up the chippie with VersaMark, poured a bit of black UTEE on it, heat embossed, and rubbed gold paint over it to finish.

The completed page. It suits where I feel I’m headed on life’s journey right now. My heart is full and I’m ready to soar.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creations. I’ll see you next month!

Love this kid & Just like daddy – By Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | 0 comments

Good Morning Scrap Fx fans!

Amélie with you today to introduce 2 new creations!

My first creation “Love this kid”. I first used a paper from the company 49 & Market on which I applied a layer of clear gesso. I then stamped a few motifs before adding Arts Stones d Prima Marketing and spray ink. True to my habit, I left my chipboard to the natural. The flowers are made by hand, by me!

For my second creation, “Just like daddy”, I used a paper in grunge style. I have plied a layer of clear gesso before using modeling paste using a stencil. I then applied a few different ink colors. My Scrap Fx chipboards are once again left to the natural!¬†The flowers are my creation!

Man of the house &; Autumn day

Welcome!

Today I’m back with a fall and a masculine inspired layout.

 Nothing is more beautiful and peaceful than strolling through the vibrantly coloured forest in the silence of nature. It was a golden autumn day, mild temperatures and sunshine, we picked mushrooms and berries, all perfect conditions for a perfectly relaxing day.

Love this Kid & Home Sweet Home by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | 0 comments

I¬īm here today to share my work with these pieces from Septembers new products; Metal & Stone Collage, Sweet Home Journal Frame, Houses in Row Stamp, Apartment Stamp, Love this Kid Wordlet, Brave etc mini.

 

The exploring combinations of paint, textures & Scrap FX products continues in my Art Journal. This spread was made using both a stencil & several pieces of chipboard from Scrap FX.

The Cool Circles Stencil form the base of this spread together with different mists from Tattered Angels. I simply applied Modeling paste trough the stencil, dried and applied layers of mists & water. When dry I added the chipboard that where embossed to get a grungy and colorful style.

Several colors of embossing powder makes the Love this Kid Wordlet look really cool. And the 13th & Brave etc mini looks pretty cool in other colors. They really pop I think.

 

This month I also made a layout about the surroundings to where I live.

The Home Sweet Home frame fits perfect to frame the name of my village and the House & Apartments stamps turned out great as background stamps.

I cut the Metal & Stone Collage in two to fit my design.

 

This is the products I used from the Scrap FX store:

 

  • 2017280 Metal & Stone collage
  • 2017282 Sweet Home Journal Frame
  • 2017288 Houses in Row Stamp
  • 2017289 Apartment Stamp
  • 2017306 Love this Kid
  • 2017304 Brave Etc Mini
  • 2016339 Cool circle stencil
  • 2016333-13 13th Mini

Thank you for visiting today!

My Brother My Mate

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hello There Scrap FX Friends,

It’s Renee here to share some scrappy creations.

My first share is a layout I created using the title My Brother My Mate.  Which is perfect to show the bond between my two boys.

I used the My Brother My Mate Mini chipboard and my trusty Posca Pens to colour it.

I wanted to get some different colours into the title.  By using the pens I was able to get finer detail.

Here are some close-ups:

On this layout I also used the Chevron Borders Chipboard.  I inked this piece with black Staz On.

My second share is an Art Journal page.  As soon as I laid my eyes on the amazing Houses in a Row stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I am so happy with how it turned out.  Those colours just make me happy.

And I cannot believe how easy the stamps are to use.  I will be ordering myself some more stamps in the future.

Home is where your story begins.

The details on this stamp are just perfect, there was absolutely no bleeding at all.

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

A bit of grunge mixed with a touch of pretty.

Good morning dear friends

I am back on the blog today sharing two projects including this grungy page and some vintage birthday cards below.

Scrap Fx Products used:

Fancy Feathers small

Compass Aim

I started by playing with my Geli plate and doing a quick print on the left of my page. Inspired by the All and Create Oceania Challenge, I added a thin piece of paperbark I collected on a bushwalk a couple of years ago.

Next I used one of the new stencils from the Strength in Numbers collection by 13@rts to create this image on a piece of acrylic sheet.

I coloured my chipboard pieces  with white Brilliance  ink and combined them with feathers to create a headpiece.

Last but not least I used Tim Holtz Big chat and Chit Chat stickers to tell the story and reveal some of the thoughts that inspired this page.

The next project I want to share with you is these Vintage Elegance cards I created for my recent classes in Brisbane.

A couple more close ups…

I asked Jill if she would make me a larger version of the Mermaid corner¬†so that I could create this piece… and she is gorgeous in this larger size… not that she isn’t totally fabulous in the original size too….
I used the Angel Fish Stencil to create the fish on the canvas… it’s a super cool stencil…
