I actually tilted the frame so the scribble pieces were on the top and bottom of the photo to suit the page.
I have added Mini Retro flowers to the side of the page to fill space and then added one to the frame to tie it all in. Both the frame and flowers were covered with two coats of gesso and I didn’t smooth it out, I quite like the texture of it being applied randomly.
I hope you find some inspiration from these pages and
Hello there! How are you today? It’s Riikka here to share my pages with the new collection so expect two hearty layouts! They are very different but both have a lot of hearts on them.
The first one is the black one and I believe that you now know where the post title comes from. I made the other page using a black background and the other using a white one. The story in this page is about a childhood memory.
When I was just starting school, maybe 7 or 8 years old, I happened to see Alice Cooper’s “Poison” music video on MTV. And that hit hard! I then found Alice Cooper’s photo from a magazine, cut that out and treasured it in my wallet. I didn’t have a clue back then about the lyrics as I didn’t know English at that age, but the visual aspect appealed to me and for a moment Alice Cooper was my ideal man. Thinking back now that makes me smile.
I just had to document this memory as I think my kids will find it funny later on. It also is funny how I later on became “a metal head” while I was listening to pop songs at young age and really found my style only after my 20s.
And here’s the white one! Quite a different look, don’t you think? The topic of this page is my dad’s new puppy. Or actually the puppy is now over 6 months old now, but on the photo she’s much younger. It’s taken back in summer when I visited there and the sweet fur ball loved to be close and slept by my side when I was laying on the grass reading a magazine.
Hi, it’s Bec here today to share with you another hearts layout.
I started this page by stamping the Doily Stamp in versamark ink and embossing with pale yellow embossing powder. This gave a light image on the background to add another layer of detail, unfortunately it is hard to see in my photos I added colour with Prima Color bloom sprays before I used the heart confetti stencil. I mixed texture paste and heavy gesso together to go through the stencil to make the hearts bright white.
I primed all my chipboard pieces with gesso before I coloured the Happy Memories with pale yellow embossing powder, and the Heartscrawl and Love Key with Prima chalk ink. To finish off I added all my flowers and embellishments.
Hi my friends!
It’s Irina Gerschuk with you today and I’d like to share with you an idea on how to add more volume to your project using chipboard. There are two easy ways to achieve it. 1st one is to glue not the whole piece of chipboard to your background but only one side of it (that works perfect on different swirls, brunches, flowers etc). The 2nd one is to use a pin to thrust in a chipboard piece (as I did in my first project).
So, let’s see what we can get using this ideas:
In this card I’ve used both of them:
I’ve covered the key and the heart with embossing powders with shabby effect (white and pink)
I’ve glued the key and the blossom incompletely (as I suggested at the beginning).
I’ve covered the blossom with white embossing powder, then added some pearls and covered the whole construction with clear embossing powder:
I’ve prick the heart to a pin and then added it to the composition. The heart was covered with the embossing powder on both sides.
I again glued the branches incompletely to add more volume to the project
Both branches were covered with shabby-effect embossing powder I’ve also added few pearls to the budding branch and then covered it with glossy glue:
That’s all for today!
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day))
My name is Jasmine and I live in beautiful Melbourne Australia. I am a city girl but I do dream of living in the country one day.
I am married to a wonderful man named Nick and we run our own business which keeps us very busy…and sometimes stressed….We have four wonderful children so again, very busy and very stressed….lol. We have 3 boys, oldest is 14, twins are 11 and then our little girl who is 8.
I love scrapbooking and have been doing so since 2006 when one of the mum’s at kinder invited us along to a ‘Scrap Night’. I never knew it would become an obsession. Would I have still gone along if I did know? Most certainly….
I enjoy challenging myself and trying to create something a bit different on each page by thinking outside the square. I am always looking to learn and develop my style. I love working with turquoise/aqua and yellow. Oh, and a splash of red is always beautiful. I think my “fingerprint” on my pages would be texture. I cannot create a “flat” page anymore. Bring on the texture.
Oh and in case you didn’t know, I am totally addicted to this crazy craft, just like you are I’m sure and I am so honoured to be designing for Scrap FX.
Hearts – Love – more Hearts
This was everything I needed to take the opportunity to scrap a photo of my hubby and I. A ‘subject’ I don’t scrap often enough.
I came across this photo taken a few years ago and we look so relaxed, happy, content…..and younger.
I have used the Large Lovebirds A Rustic chipboard heart and cut the birds out to place on another part of the page.
I used gesso on my fingers to colour the chipboard and then used some yummy white art sugar on top to create some beautiful texture.
I also used the Sketchy Heart Stamp behind the chipboard piece to create another couple of hearts as part of the background.
The stamps stamp beautifully using any kind of ink.
I really struggle with titles. Finding the right words to use and also using alphas to suit the page is also difficult sometimes.
Having this Graffiti Hearttitle was perfect. Problem solved.
I inked it black and this time coated it with black art sugar. I can’t get enough of this texture.
