Hi everyone, a nice quick journal page today.

This one started with the Hearty Stencil and some gloss sprays.  I then added a few random spots of colour.

For the Grungy Stars Transparency I have once again coloured the back of these with alcohol ink.  They have then been randomly stapled to a couple of die cuts and some messy sewing to hold it all in place.

The Women in Black piece has been coated with matte medium and then sprinkled with glitter.  I used an old brush that was quite stiff and dirty and love the way it has given her a stripy look.  It reminds me of my denim bubble gum jeans from the 80s.

The title has been taken from the She Phrases Transparency and adhered with matte medium.

Hope you’ve been inspired ♥

Great Ideas

Hey y’all! Well it’s 2021 and I am hopeful that things are going to get better!
In the meantime my mind has been completely distracted and so today’s project is a bit of a cray cray layout in my journal.

ScrapFX products used

Light Globe LARGE

Chains stamps

House & Home stamp

Mechanical Bits

I also used acrylic paints, Distress Ink Spray, gesso, a gel printed piece of paper, washi tape, Stabillo Woody pencils, Stabillo All pencil, and a couple colour copies

I started by adding gesso to the entire right side of the journal spread, and a bit through the middle of the fabric on the left side.
Then I used a colour copy of my face in mirror image and did an image transfer on the right side and I put a strip of washi tape along the bottom.
Once that was dry I added a bunch of acrylic paint and Stabillo woody pencils around the top of my head and sides.
I added the crown with a piece of gel printed paper that I had kicking around, the secret is I needed the crown because I was a bit too aggressive with the
image transfer and I put a bit of a hole in the page. Oops lol oh well, it was an opportunity not a mistake!
I did some stamping and sprayed some spray ink on the top of the acrylic paint on the left side.
Then I painted the lightbulb and the cogs, I put a picture of the house behind the lightbulb and glued it all down.
I added some outlines around my hair and glasses and the rays above my head. Then I added some scribbly circles around my one eye, cuz why not? lol

That’s all for now. Stay safe everyone!

 

Always be yourself art journal page

Hi friends!

Lisa today to share with you my new art journal inspiration for Scrap FX design team playing with collage papers, stamps and my favorite watercolors!

To start I glued some pieces of Scrap Fx collage papers with gel medium.

Then I brushed clear gesso to protect the papers and I used some watercolors to get a rainbow effect.

I let it dry and so I took some Scrap Fx stamps that I used with archival inks.

Finally I made splatters with white liquid paint to give more interest into the page.

I used these products from the store:

I hope you enjoyed my art journal page for today!

Hugs, Lisa

Bonheur, by Chantale

Hi everyone,

First of all, I want to wish you a wonderful year 2021, may it be creative to the fullest and full of beautiful moments.

Today, I present to you a colored page on a black background. I like working with a black background, it brings out the flash colors.
I started by doing my background using the new Picket Fence paper glazes, I like them, they are so shiny and beautiful. 
Then I made my stamps and used my black texturizing paste.
I love the result of this creation, it is colorful and full of details.
For this layout, I used this beautiful Scrap FX products:

Happy New Year!

Celebrate, that’s something this year I think we all need to stop and do this year, no matter how small it could be. Last year certainly shook life up and made us realize just how fragile it is.

So to start the year off I want to share a fun layout, using

Splotchy Rainbows by Karen YatesRainbow Collage paper

Celebrate frame chipboard frame

Flowery Bits Transparency

I just tore bits of collage papers and then stuck them all down to create the background

I then added a bit of paint, some stenciling and then added the frame and the flowers to finish it all off.

Well that’s it from me.. Thanks for stopping by

 

This is Your Dream Art Journal Page – Chrissi M

by Chrissi Mannix | Comments Off on This is Your Dream Art Journal Page – Chrissi M

Hello lovelies

Today I’m making an Art Journal page with some Gel Plate prints I created using Scrap FX stamps and stencils.

Playing with a Gel Plate is such a good way to make your own collage papers. It’s also very addictive, I will warn you.

After playing with my gel plate, I picked my favourite print and decided to useit in my altered book art journal.

I adhered it into my journal on either side of the book using Gel Medium and then I added gesso to blend the pieces together and give me some white space for my focal point.

I added more Scrap FX stamps to my background using archival coloured inks to match my page.

I used black paint for my focal point to really make it pop from my page. Using a stenciled quote, again using black paint, I added my quote to my focal area to finish off my page.

I also have the video of this process up on the Scrap FX Youtube Channel if you would like to see the page come together.

Products Used:

Circular Shawl Stencil

Inside Number Stamps

Chevron Panel Stamp

Round and Round Stamp

Chicken Wire Stamp

Number Crunch Stamps

Circle Marks Stamps

Celebrate Family

by Karen Jarman | Comments Off on Celebrate Family

Hi Everyone

Happy New Year! It’s great to be creating in 2021! Have you set any creating goals this year? I am still working on what mine will be haha. So for my first layout this year I have created a page celebrating my family – Life.

I just love the Circle Hash Frame which I sprayed with black ink and backed the circles with patterned paper.

For the background I used paint sprays and the used the River Bubble Circle Stencil for a bit of subtle texture with modelling paste. I think I have said it before, I LOVE this stencil!

I popped the chipboard piece up off the page with foam to give depth and shadows, I love how it pops off the page! then added lots of fussy cut flowers from patterned paper and added some thread for more texture.

I really love how this turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Creating!

Smash Cake…..By Belinda Lowe

by Belinda Lowe | Comments Off on Smash Cake…..By Belinda Lowe

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

Belinda here…I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and have BIG scrappy plans for 2021

I have a layout to share with you today, I hope you like it

I have created this page using the following products: Birthday Transparency, Happy Birthday Balloons, Balloon Bunch, Written Numbers A, Scratchings and Scribble Stamp, Smash Cake and 2019 Year Pack

      

Here are a few close ups of the products in use:

And I would also like to share a few simple techniques I used along the way (Just because sometimes we forget the simple things) –

  1. To create the colour on the background I used scribble sticks and water – simply colour onto a piece of plastic, spray with water and then dab onto your yardstick/patterned paper
  2. Use texture paste through your utensils to get a dimensional effect

3. Simply glue paper onto chipboard and sand around the edges to shape and smooth the paper

See Simple………………

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your other Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases

Happy Scrappy Days!!!

Belinda xx
