Christmas Art Journal Page …. by Lynn

by Lynn Good | 0 comments

Today I have created an art journal page for Christmas.  I am not a huge lover of the Christmas hype – It is much more of a quiet time for us, but there is always the countdown to christmas and I have created an art journal page representing this count down and the unorganised situation I find myself in!

this layout begun with the gelli plate and a peeled paint effect youtube video that I watched featuring Birgit Koopson on Gelli Arts.  The link to this video is here

I created my background page and then added it to my art journal and created the black and white border with paint pens.

I have then used the number stencil and distress inks to highlight the numbers.

The chipboard pieces have been embossed with white and green embossing powder.

Here are some close ups:

Hello There Friends,

There is always one thing I love to do at the end of the year, and that is to look back at my work.  I love looking back at all the gorgeous pieces I have been fortunate to use from Scrap FX.

Here is my favourite layout from the year 2018.

This one was from July.

I love all the elements, the different chipboard pieces suited it and the Chain Stencil.

Here are some close-ups:

These were the awesome Scrap FX products I used:

Thanks for stopping by, I will see you again on Saturday.

Scrap FX Design Team 2019

by admin | 0 comments

Presenting the Scrap FX design team for 2019

Our newest additions:

NIAMH BALY – Australia

My name is Niamh Baly and I am a mixed media artist who has a love of art journaling, collage and making a painty mess. I love creating and being creative, particularly the problem-solving side of it. I started stamping and embossing when I was 12, became quickly addicted and never stopped. Throughout my many years in the craft industry I have been a stamper, card maker, scrapbooker, owner, designer and manufacturer of Pipe Dreamink and Opals Embossing Enamels, and now a mixed media art journaller. I also run my own YouTube channel full of process and demonstration videos. In my day to day life I am a mum to two small kids and a primary school teacher. My mantra is there is never a ‘bad’ piece of art as it can always be fixed or painted over! I am really excited to be part of the Scrap FX Australia design team for 2019 and can’t wait to start creating!

 

SHARON FRITCHMAN – U.S.A.

Hi! My name is Sharon and I live in the state of Pennsylvania in the USA. I am married, have two daughters, an identical twin sister, and work part time as a registered nurse. AND . . . my artistic passion is scrapbooking! I got interested in creating scrapbook pages when I adopted my daughter from China in 2004, and I haven’t stopped since. My style has evolved over the years into an eclectic and sometimes shabby-chic style. I can relate to the “everyday scrapbooker” with my easy-going style. I am honored to be a part of the Scrap FX Design Team and cannot wait to start creating with their fabulous products.

 

TANYA FROUD – Australia

Hi my name is Tanya and I live in country NSW. I am mum to 3 and my manchild husband. I have been scrapping for 16 years with my style evolving over that time away from traditional scrapbooking to mixed media, art journaling and off the page projects. My style now can best be described as messy mixed media, I love building layers and using a wide variety of mediums such as paints inks stamps and stencils. I look forward to sharing my work with you all.

 

GUYLAINE SEYER – Canada

I am Guylaine, early forty, mother of three beautiful children: David, Ariane and Valerie. They are my first source of inspiration! I have been in a relationship for over 20 years and for a very long time! In everyday life, I am a buyer for a company that manufactures scanners. I discovered Scrapbooking in 2006 during my last maternity leave. It was for the purpose of creating personalized photo albums for my children. Since then, it has become more than a goal but a passion. I discovered the world of cards a year later and I’m just as addicted.

 

BELINDA LOWE – Australia

Hello Fellow Crafters! I am ecstatic to have been given the opportunity to design for Scrap FX in 2019. For all of you who do not know me, my name is Belinda Lowe. I live in Hodgson Vale, Queensland that is just out of Toowoomba with my hard working husband and three of our four children (one flew the coop). I am a full-time Clinical Nurse who has been enjoying all things scrappy for at least 11 years now. I have enjoyed watching it evolve over the years and have loved learning all that comes with it. I have to say I am addicted to all things craft and love to create anything out of everything – nothing is junk. I love to try new techniques and just love playing with new products. I don’t know that I have a particular style, I’m a “go with the flow” sort of gal and I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you all.

 

LISA RABELLINO – Italy

Hi! My name is Annalisa (but all simply call me Lisa) and I live in Italy, with my husband and our adored baby of 6 years. I love mixed media techniques, create canvases and altered objects using multiple products like gesso, stencil, spray colors, acrylic colors and embellishments of all materials. I also love to create scrapbook layouts, mini albums, handmade card and home decor with a romantic style, rich of embellishments and details. You can follow me and watch my works on my blog http:lisacreativa.blogspot.it on my Instagram https://www.instagram.com/lisa.rabellino/ and also on my Facebook page My Scrap Lab I’ve recently opened a You Tube channel to share my video tutorials here and I really enjoy it! Now I can’t wait to start create new beautiful projects for you! hugs, Lisa

 

HEMA  – India

Hello! I’m Hema from India. I have been on the creative side since childhood, but off late since 3yrs I have been addicted to this new passion of Mixed media. I love to play with colors and textures and try on some new techniques. I’m addicted to mediums/dies/stamps/flowers/ chippies…..and colors. I love to work on dark grunge or white shabby or bight sunny or subtle colors and this gives me an opportunity to try various styles. I cant imagine my life without these and I love textures/ layers/ mediums/ and try not to limit my imagination to one particular criteria. I have fun creating and expressing myself in the art I create. I’m so honored to be here with some wonderful design teams and have got love and support across the globe. This is a real blessing to be associated with so many wonderful talented souls who inspire me and also vice versa. I hope you like my work shared in the coming months!! XOXO

Easy layout by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | Comments Off on Easy layout by Kate

Hi,

sometimes we do not have mood for tons of layers, embellishments and we just want to create something original. My layout for today is very original (yes no more christmas crafting I am done with christmas for this year I will just enjoying them), I did not use any stencil, any paste, any paper flower any metal embellishment. With just few incredients I mixed cute layout with our dog.

You need just: good quality paper, ScrapFX stamp and chipboards, 2 pigment inks, 2 watercolours, water resistent marker, watercolour paper and white acrylic colour

How to:

  • stamp background just here and there as you like it
  • draw leaves and flowers and colour them with watercolours and cut them
  • colour chipboards with the same ink which you stamped with (optional: heat emboss it with clear embossing ink)
  • glue everything on page
  • make white splatters and splatters with both watercolours

Have a nice day

Kate

Great Grandma by Renee Aslette

Hello There Friends,

So I am officially on holidays and I am so looking forward on catching up with some scrappy projects.

Today I am sharing a layout I created with some Scrap FX Chipboard and Stencil.

I took my time making this layout.  It features layers, mixed media and fussy cutting.

Here are some close-ups:

I used Texture Paste with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Spun Sugar refill ink and the Scrap FX Single Damask Stencil.  It came out so pretty.

I painted this beautiful Flourish 17 Tendrils Chipboard White.

The Great Grandma Chipboard title is also painted white.

I finished off with some splatters of white and the same pink.

Here are the Scrap FX products I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by.  See you next week.

Art Journalling with a gelli plate

by Lynn Good | 1 Comment

Hi Everyone, today I would like to share with you the contents of a Junk Journal – I made the cover a couple of months ago.

I had the privilege to meet the wonderful Dee Dee Catron from America last month and she had these wonderful blocks with chipboard mounted on them to use with her Gelli plate.   So I decided to make my own.  I got my husband to cut down some random blocks of wood I found lying around his shed!

and I added chipboard pieces that I loved with Matte Medium.  I gave then overnight to dry completely (I did the matte medium on the top as well)

and then it was fun time to be had with my paints, my gelli plate and the wonderful stamps.   I created some awesome backgrounds:

Once I was happy with the backgrounds I have used some scrap FX Stamps on the pages and then using a white and black paint pen I have added dots, dashes, stripes, blogs and  marks until I thought it looked ok – that was the problem – knowing when to stop!!!!

Once I had completed the pages and they were dry I could then put my Junk Journal together inside the cover that I had previously made.

I hope that this has given you some inspiration to make your own chipboard stamp blocks, to get messy with paints and create a junk journal.

Monochromatic canvas and art journal

by Kate Dachovska | Comments Off on Monochromatic canvas and art journal

Hi,

today I am really far away of my traditional mixed media projects. I created two monochromatic projects. One canvas and one art journal. Both projects are very simple and even beginners can recreate them. It can look like I used some photo filter over my photos but not all are in colour but monochromatic in black white grey.

Background for my canvas is easy I used glitter silver paste and new stencil Art nouveau circle stencil. Chipboard is coloured with Tattered angels sprays and white chalk ink pad. Splatters are made with white acrylic paint. Really easy canvas but also very interesting.

Background for my art journal is hand painted with watercolours, I used also some stamping and made splatters.
