Looking for Adventure + Joho – Pirates life by Kerstin

by Kerstin-Inga Peters | 0 comments

Hello crafty friends!

Our newest monthly products are all sea inspired products, fabulous, because that’s one of my fav themes.

But the summer is over here, Halloween is just around the corner and so was my idea to create a mixed media fantasy layout

inspired from the movie ‘Pirates of Carribean ‘.

I used a dark spider web background paper as basic.

On the photo you can see a motif from this movie it was a sand sculpturing challenge.

used Scrap FX products

Lighthouse, lightbulb

Looking for Adventure

Pirate Ship

Steampunk Top hat

Splat stencil

Boho Arrow border 

Spider Web frame

I wanted to create a background in a gloomy dripping atmosphere in a ship hull, therefore I used only the drops from the Splat stencil

I found the typical pirate symbol  as a part piece in the  Steampunk Top hat set

Lighthouse, lightbulb

in combination with a gear and a cut out from an old magazine

our black silhouette Boho Arrow border  

reminds me on to the hat pendant of Jack Sparrow, of course Captain Jack Sparrow 😉


and my second inspiration is a sea inspired mixed media layout ‘Looking for adventure’

Dolphin stamp

Coral and Seaweed Small

Mini shells 

Ocean transparency


Surf waves

Wave scene

Coral stencil

some details

Dolphin stamp

our latest amazing stamp is absolutely wonderful, the motif  is a mix of filigree delicate line and shapes

I used the stamp with a chalk ink pad on the background

Coral and Seaweed Small 

I also discovered this awesome chipboard ‘ Wave scene’  a dreamy landscape and a perfect addition for my layout

Many thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

Layout and ATC’s ……… by Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | 0 comments


Morning everyone, today I would like to share a layout and and set of 3 ATC’s that have a beach theme.  We live in a coastal town – but dont often go to the beach – maybe because Tasmania has a very small summer!!!  I have scrapped a layout of my two boys and our dog on the beach (This was taken about 13 years ago!)

First the layout:


I have used 49 & Market paper from the Tattered Vintage Artistry Collection.   I have used the Cool Circles Stencil and  Finnabair white crackle paste and Texture Paste – Black Sand.  I have used Tattered Angel Mists to colour the background and the chipboard pieces. I have used Marabu Art Spray Gold for highlights.  I have used black ink to stamp some triangles in the background using a triangles stamp.  The title I have embossed with black range fine embossing powder.

Here are some close ups:


Chipboard Pieces Used:

Mini Shells

Life at the Beach Title

For my second project I have created 3 artist trading cards:

The background paper has been created with alcohol inks and Yupo paper.  I have coloured the mini shells with the same Tattered Angel Mists as in the layout above. I have left the titles plain so they stand out against the busy background.

Here are some close ups:

Life At Sea – Layouts by Renee Aslette

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hello There,

Who doesn’t love the smell of the ocean, the sound of waves crashing and the sand between your toes?

Today I have two layouts that I created using the beach theme new release products.

I love how this layout turned out.  There are so many layers to this and I allowed it to dry naturally in between layers.

Here are some close-ups:

I began by using the Nautilus Stencil and texture paste.  I allowed it to dry naturally.

I then used three different colours of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Refills.  I painted the ink onto a piece of plastic wrap and then stamped it into the areas I wanted to see it.  I sprayed water over it, then dabbed dry with a paper towel.  I did this step three times with each different colour.

#beachlife is from the #beach chipboard themed pack.  I painted it with navy blue ink.

I also used the Wire Circle Frame on top of the photo.  I painted it white.

In clusters on the frame I used the Mini Shells.  I painted them and added some stones.

The Title Life at the Beach is painted using the same Tim Holtz Distress Inks as I used in the background.

Last, but not least is the Coral and Seaweed Small.  This was painted with the background colours also.  It was layered with embellishments from the Kaisercraft Beach Shack Collection.

Here are the products I used:

My second share is another beach themed layout, this one using a family photo we had taken at the Beach.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Pier Bollards with Rope chipboard.  I cut it in half and used it to the right and left of the layout.

The base of the bollards was dipped in Prima Glass Beads.  I left the rope plain.

In the flower cluster you can see a Mini Shell Chipboard.

#oceanair is from the #beach chipboard themed pack.

The Title Sun Filled Days is painted black.

The silhouette in the background is the Fibonacci Shell BLACK.  It is gorgeous and so fine, it fitted perfect in the background of this layout.

Here are the products I used for this layout:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  xxx. See you again soon.

Art Journal Pages by Heike

by Heike Bruhn | Comments Off on Art Journal Pages by Heike

Hello my dear blog reader,

today is my turn to inspire you with my DT member projects.

I created three art journal pages.

For a short time I have completely fallen for art journaling.

That`s because I am currently trying a new style and new techniques,

and the art journal is perfect to try new things and techniques.

In the moment I am fascinated by abstract collage ,

abstract painting with acrylic or watercolour or geometric shapes.

I am also interested in the meaning and symbolic of colours and stamp images.

I also love to leave a lot of white space on my page, I think the effect of the white spaces

is impressive and has much more dramatic.

And by the way, the art journal does not need so much space for storage:).

Here are my DT member art journals.

I used for the art journals from Scrap FX:

Ocean transparency

Dream transparency

Round & Round stamp

Radiant Circles stamp

Harlequin Stamp

Journey stamp

Grunge Alphabet stamp silhouettes

Surfer silhouettes

Nautilus Graphic BLACK

Butterflies stencil

Zebra Circles stencil

Flutter Bird stencil

John & Harry stencil LARGE

Mini Roses stencil

I also used:
Distress Ink, Distress Oxide, Art Journal Book from Ranger.
Archival Ink from Ranger.
Finnabair black gesso.
Watercolor Schmincke.
Ecoline white Nr.100.
Acrylic color Amsterdam.
LaBlanche stamp.
Paper Artsy stamp.
Unity Stamp Company stamp.
Posca black and white pen.
Wow embossing.
Lindys embossing and spray.
I hope that I could inspire you a little bit to work in an art journal book,

I send you greetings from The Netherlands

and maybe you have the mood to drop by for my second post in October for Scrap fx.

Until next time.

Junk Journal – By Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | 1 Comment

Good morning, Lynn here and today I would like to share with you another of my Junk Journals – I am going to put them all together when I have finished.  So each one is like a signature.

I have used paper artsy paints.  I have applied them randomly around the page blending them with a wet wipe.

For the internal pages I have left alot of white space as I am thinking I would like to do some more word journalling on these pages to relate to my feelings on the day that I use it.

I have used a collection stencils to apply the colour as well as my finger around the edges.

Once dry I used a collection of stamps which I will list at the bottom of the blog.

Here are some close ups:

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on Beautiful Little Boy – A Layout by Renee Aslette

Hello Lovelies,

I decided to start off the month with a Mixed Media Boys Layout using lots of Scrap FX products.

I used the Boys Rule Collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Here are some close-ups:

I began by using the Brick Stencil with Texture Paste.

Then I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Refills to colour the background.

I cut the Construction Collage in half to appear in two places on the layout.  Painted with inks.

I used the Chevron Border Stamp and Memento Ink Pad in Black.

The Title Beautiful Little Boy had an ‘s’ on the end but I cut it off to suit the photos of my boy Jackson.

The layout is finished off with #beautiful theme pack.  I only used the word #cute and #adorable.

These are the products I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic October. xx

Happy Memories – A Layout and Tag by Renee Aslette

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on Happy Memories – A Layout and Tag by Renee Aslette

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Renee, here to share with you two projects I created using this months new releases.

My first share is a layout I created that is pretty, using the Butterflies Stencil and many chipboard pieces.

This turned out so pretty with loads of mixed media in the background.

I started by adding a layer of clear Gesso first.

Then I used the Butterfly Stencil with Texture Paste, adding layers of colour.

Here are some close-ups:

I think that Butterflies Stencil is going to become a favourite for me.

I used these gorgeous “Happy” and “Memories” chipboards for the Title.  They were painted with black ink.

I cut the Spiral Border Small and added it to the Top Right and Bottom Left of the photo.

I also used the Heart Flower Mini’s.  Both of these were painted with ink.

Here are all the products I used:

My second share is a tag using Stamps, Chipboard and Silhouettes.

Here are some close-ups:

I used a strip of the Dream Transparency for the centre of the tag.

Then I used the Honeycomb Stamp in different areas of the background.

I used the Honeycomb Centre and Outside of the Honeycomb Stencil Chipboard.

There is the outer (which I cut) and you also get 25 hexagons.

I painted these with White Gesso.

Here are all the products used:

Thanks so much for stopping by. xx
