3 occasions, 3 cards.

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

Hi everyone!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer.

Today, I’ll show you 3 cards I made for 3 totally different occasions.

*****

The first card is a support card for a lady who’s having a hard time.

I wanted to bring her some colours and hope.

I chose to use the delicate Believe Birds that I cut in half, and filled in the Rose Stencil with warm watercolours.

item used:

Believe Birds

Rose Stencil

*****

The second card is a birthday card I made some time ago.

I worked my background with the Key Heart stencil and heavy medium gel.

Once my print was dry, I used watercolours to make the keys and heart stand out a bit more, and added a bit of black.

The Happy Birthday E stencil was tainted in black, and then lightly dotted with white paint.

Item used:

Key Heart stencil

2016 Year Pack

*****

The last card is the quickest card I ever made!

I made it for a retirement party of a male collegue.

I wanted it really clean, simple, and reminding of mechanicals.

The Mechanical Time stencil was a perfect match!

A Layout and a canvas by Lynn

by Lynn Good | 1 Comment

Hi everyone, Lynn here to share a layout I created using a photograph taken of some Melbourne city street art as well as a canvas using an array of chipboard pieces.

 

For this layout I have used the 7 Dots – Hazy Days collection.  The background using stencils from 13arts and The Crafters workshop together with Colour Blast Paste, Whipped Spackle and Art Alchemy Paint – Metallique Deep Waters.

I heat embossed the title with Stampendous Embossing Powder – Pearlustre tanzanite and for the steampunk flourish border, I cut this in half and painted it with Golden High Flow – Shading Grey.

Here are some close ups:

 

Chipboard Used:

Steampunk Flourish Border

Street Art

and for my second project I have created a canvas representing the jumbled thoughts in a persons head and finally being released and free like a bird.

I began by setting out all the items onto a canvas and then gluing them down – I used Prima 3D Matte Gel for this.

I used Prima 3D Gloss Gel through a prima circle stencil around the blank areas.  I then painted everything with a couple of coats of black gesso.

Once this was dry I was then able to start building up the layers of colour using Prima Art Alchemy Paint, Finnabair Mica Powder, Art Alchemy Metallique Wax and glitter.

Here are some close up:

Something more than just a day at the beach

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

 Hello dear friends

I hope you have all been well and I am so happy that you are visiting us again today.

I have been working really hard behind the scenes and will be sharing lots of new projects with you both here, social media and yes as well as in real life.

In September I will be traveling to Brisbane and teaching a number of classes which includes lots and lots of Scrap FX goodness, so if you are in the area please join me for some play time.

Now for today’s post I decided to create this layout of my wedding day in 2004 using the new A Day at the beach chippy in combination with one of my old time favorite chippy sets, the Mini Bouquets . I also used the gorgeous Orchid Stencil.

To create this layout I fussy cut some flowers from the Kaiserkraft Cherry Tree Lane collection and inked the edges with Distress ink. In the photo below you will also see the Orchid Stencil image peeking out from under the fussy cut images.

To ensure that my background paper does not buckle I stuck it down on the 1.8mm 12×12 Chipboard sheets you can purchase at Scrap FX.

I gessoed my chipboard pieces and painted them with Prima Marketing Alchemy Acrylic paints.

Last but not least I assembled all my pieces and added some flowers and fibers to add some texture to go with the photoframe.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today and will join us again soon for more inspiration from my fellow team members.

Till then have fun xxx

by Heike Bruhn | 1 Comment

Introducing the last of our new design team members……

Hello, nice to meet you here on the blog from Scrap FX Australia.  My name is Heike Bruhn from Heike`s AugenBlick.  I live in the oldest city of the beautiful country The Netherlands.  With my biggest supporter and love of my life Jörgen.  Our love is crowned with two girls and two boys, one son-in-law and three lovely grandchildren.  I worked always as a SAHM but now with four grown-up-children I have more time for me and my passion “scrapbooking”.

My style: hmmm…vintage, modern, abstract… I don`t know.  But one thing is for sure, it`s always colorful.  Chipboards are an important part of my layouts they make a great finishing touch.

I am thankful for this opportunity to scrap together with an amazing team.

You can find me on: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and on my Blog under the name: Heike`s AugenBlick.

Hello everyone,

Mini tutorial:

Cover your chipboard with Clear Gesso.

Mix Black Gesso and Texture powder together.

Cover your chipboard with the mix.

I love the texture on the trees.

Outline the trees with Embossing cream.

Cover with Embossing powder. Heat with Heat Tool.

I love the effect with the Embossing powder. The trees are looking so real.

A little bit finger painting with the yellow rust effect paste on the middel of the trees.

For the next chipboard: Cover the word with red and yellow Archival Ink.

And then cover the word with Ultra thick Embossing Powder, heat with heat Tool.

I like the shining layer.

Thank you so much for your visiting today.

Have a nice crafty day.

Layout #purrfect by Kate

Hi,

for today I prepared layout featuring different chipboards. I used Prima Marketing Rose Quartz papers and ephemera and stickers. I do not like selfies but I like this photo of me and my cat Annie. Annie was gift for my 30th birthday, when we just moved to family house so I could finally have cat. She is from cat shelter and she is amazing, as cats are. Friendly and so individual and always crafting with me.

All chipboards which I used for layout are painted with white acrylic white paint (Pebeo) – I like to paint with acrylics more than with Gesso because I think acrylics cover more than Gesso and you do not need many layers. They do dry slowly so you can heat emboss them too – my  biggest chipboard is heat embossed with white embossing ink. All supplies are at the end. I wanted to make simple layout and decorate it with fussy cut flowers. It is another easy way how to embellish your project and not to use expensive flowers and embellishments. Fussy cutting is for me relax. I like combination of grey, white and pink which you can find on my laout. It is very light mixed media but still quite clean.

Supplies:

Scrap FX

Rectangle collage – 2017198

#pets – 2016202

papers – Prima Marketing Rose Quartz

Finnabair – Clear Gesso, Modeling paste

White ecoline, Tattered Angel Glimmer mists, Stampendous embossing powder, Pebeo acrylic paint, TCW stencil

 

HOOP EMBROIDERY LAYOUT BY SHARON ZIV

Hi Dear Followers and friends!

Summer is absolutely here and the Cypriot Sun is merciless. the right thing to do is a worm-sunny layout….but you will have to forgive me as I just can’t stand the heat anymore! Instead I went back to the pinkish colours and set my mind of the summer for as long as I created it….do you also find the creation a way to take your mind off something sometimes?

The wonderful chipboards I used will be detailed and linked below…I just love it so much. it is full of presence and always makes my projects more interesting.

Hope you will enjoy my work. Don’t forget to visit my blog for more inspiration.

Sincerely yours,

Sharon – noomish

“Cards for every Occasion”

by MichelleL | 1 Comment

Hi Everyone!

Scarlett here today to share a trio of cards featuring the Rose stencil (2012353) along with some additional ScrapFX goodies.

For this first card I used ink and NeoColors through the Rose stencil to create my rose embellishments. I wanted the artsy roses to be the feature of this card and kept the rest to a minimum, especially since this card is for my guy. 😉

To recreate the inky roses on this card take an ink pad(s), blender brush of choice, and rub through the Rose stencil. To recreate the NeoColors roses take a watercolor crayon(s), watercolor paints would work too, and brush through Rose stencil. Cut out select portions from your stencilled creations for your embellishments.

I’d have to say this card is my favorite of the trio. I’m kind of chuffed at how the brick background came out and delight in having a rose floating among clouds.

I created the brick background by using some Liquitex Black Lava through the Brick Stencil (2016260). This is a fun medium that lends itself to a rich black, gritty texture.  Once my texture paste was dry I sprayed the background heavily with some mists and patted off excess. The rose is one of the embellishments made from the first card. The clouds were made using the Clouds A HAPPY Stamp (2014208) set and heat embossing. The butterfly was altered by using some homemade glitter glue and painting it on. This is one of my favourite, quick go to techniques to jazz up chippies!
This card began with the background, as most cards do I suppose – ha!, but truly I just wanted to get playing with the Rose and Brick stencils upon receiving them. I quickly painted up a background and then added some stencilled brick patterning with a metallic paint. I’ll admit I thought it would have showed up a bit more prominently but the outcome works. I then rubbed some texture paste through the Rose stencil and set it aside to dry.

While I was waiting out my background drying I started perusing through my chippie stash (I’ve been smitten with ScrapFX for some time!) and found this Steampunk Woman (2012336). Steampunk pieces typically intimidate me some since my usual style is quite different and I don’t get light bulb type ideas of how to use them. I decided to go for it and think the silhouette look suits her well. I used black paint to colour her and homemade glitter glue on the bottom portion of her dress. The dried rose texture was painted.

I find it a fun challenge to discover numerous ways to use a product more ways than one. This not only helps creations continue to look fresh, but I find the longevity of my interest in them is increased. I hope this inspires you to look at some of your products in new ways and take the challenge as well.

Until next time, take care!

Hello Scrap Fx fans! Amélie with you today to introduce my first creation of August! I know that this is not the case everywhere in Quebec, but here in Rimouski, we live an incredibly sunny summer. The city administration even asked us to save water since it has not had rain for more than 8 weeks. I enjoy every day this beautiful sun, I have never been so tanned !!!!
