So it is April already, Wow the year is flying and so are we here at Scrap FX this month! We have a month of new releases with flying and wings on our mind!
So without further ado here are some of my faves, you can check out all the newbies here.
Aren’t these just too darn cute?
The feathers really rocked my boat and just had to use them straight away with some of the existing range.
I have used the mini feathers with the new release “Just Be…..” chippy.
There are more feathers here, told you I loved those newbies!
I have used the minis again, the mini alpha, 2015 year pack and a Midi as the title .
Ready for a little more?
Cannot wait to get my hands on these two, the hidden fly word would look fab on the corner of a photo or as part of a title. The Love Lives Here chippy comes in 2 pieces so that it can easily be customised to suit any project.
We have added some large butterflies to our silhouette range and introduced book paper cut-outs that are awesome I am sure our DT will produce some spectacular projects with these!
We could not let this theme go by without adding a few wings now could we? Check these out:
What about a few birds?
Our Stamp for the month is a beautiful flourish butterfly and a hot Air Balloon:
And lastly we have a new butterfly and wing stencil:
Lastly we have wordlets and phrases as usual!
Don’t forget to check back here during the month to take a look at what the DT come up with I am sure they will inspire!
Katie here today sharing my very first art journal spread… I always wanted to start this new form of art expression after seeing so many amazing works, but I didn’t till recently I decided to make my debut…
It occurred to me very suddenly after the demise of our nation’s first Prime Minister and founding father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew… He was one such great leader where he took the untaken path and brought Singapore to where She is today… I am deeply saddened by his demise and his legacy puts me into great thoughts…
This journal spread, Explore the Untaken Path serves as a memorial on the great work Mr. Lee had done, his bravery and courage to challenge the uncertainties…
Hello everyone TodayI have threeprojects.Two pagesandcanvas.As usual I made youvideos. I had funwith lots ofproducts to achieve amixedmedia look. I have used new and existing chipboard releasesSo here ismy first pageand video.
Hello there! It’s Riikka here today sharing two layouts with the new chippies! The other one is, like the title says, blue and for that one I treated the chippies with silver embossing powder. The other one is brown and for that I left the chippies untreated. It’s fun how much the chippies can change just by coloring and treating them with different mediums!
The first page is done using the big “Shoot for the moon” chippie. I found the phrase really inspiring and decided to make it almost the center of my page. I included the photo of my first born in the page as well, making the layout like an encouragement for her. We try to emphasise to our little ones that they can do anything they set their mind and heart to.
I started the page by adding some mist and acrylic paint to the background. The misted details are almost lost underneath the layers that came on top, but I used the Alpha Stencil in there. First I misted the color on top of the stencil and then used it like a stamp transfering the mist to the page. While misting the color remember to use the wrong side so that the end result has the letters the right way. On the other hand, as you are building the background it doesn’t matter so much if the Gs and Hs are flipped.
I also added some stamping to the background with the “School Spot” stamps. Besides the big phrase chippie I also included one of the circular ones from the “Star Theme Pack”. Can you spot it in the page?
Here’s the brown one – the mood of the chippies change dramatically with the color, don’t you think? Here the theme is just to have fun, to crete and play. The photo in the layout is taken from my craft table with some of the supplies on there. Creating is really playing and having fun!
Here are some close-ups:
I’ve added some texture to the background using Random Dots stencil together with the transparent modeling paste. The feathers were colored with different LSG embossing powders
I’ve covered the banners with pink acrylic paste and then added randomly some purple embossing powder while the paint was still wet (to achieve shabby effect). The hearts were coloured with different acrylic paints and then I’ve added some glitter while the paint was still wet
I’ve coloured the wordlet with different embossing powders to achieve some smooth transition of colour
The Doodad B was coloured with green embossing powder:
I’ve also created a masculine card with steampunk elements:
It’s Song here. Today I am on ScrapFX blog sharing with you the fun and bright layout I created.
Scroll down for the tutorial.
The color theme is inspired by Scrap Around The World march challenge. The mood board is really clean, so I decided to go for a cleaner layout other than what I usually do. The twine in the picture reminded me of scribble lines, so I dug out the scribbled look corner chippies and used it on the picture. Anyways, hope you like the layout and the tutorial
Hi everyone it’s Bec here today. I’ve been holding on to these photos for a while now just waiting for the right chance to use them, they were taken on my daughter birthday last December. This is her and her best friend trying to take photos in a photo booth at the movies, they were laughing so hard that these were the photos I got – I just love them.
