Be Mine Art Journal

by Marie Johansson | 0 comments

I´m here today to show you my new Art Journal page. I wanted to play with the Brocade Lace Stencil and see how it worked together with a stamping ink. To use love connected chipboards was really perfect and the Small Damask Heart (open lace), the Heart Flowers & Forever Mine Wordlet fits perfects as embellishments.

I started with basing the pages with white gesso. Then I applied stamping ink trough the lace stencil on one page, then flipped it over with the other side up and applied ink on the other side. That way I got a mirror effect. I thought it would be cool that some of the pattern would be raised, and to archive that I stamped with a clear embossing pad trough the stencil and then sprinkled over embossing powder.

I sprayed my Scrap FX heart chipbards with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and when dry I applied them to one side each. The Heart Flowers got a cote of sticky medium and a sprinkle of golden micro beads. As the pages needed some sort of sentiment I added the Forver Mine Wordlet, after giving it a coat of golden acrylic paint.

Some random stamping and splatters with Mist gives the spread a nice touch.

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • 2017057 Brocade Lace stencil
  • 2017040S Damask Heart (small open lace)
  • 2017036L Heart Flowers (large)
  • 2017067 Forever Mine Wordlet

Thank you for stepping by today!

Love – Our Story

by Kerstin-Inga Peters | 0 comments

Hello!

Kerstin here and I want to share with you two new projects with some of our new beautiful chipboards.

Beauty – Butterflies – Baby – Blue = 4 inspiration words and a wonderful photo

 

 

Scrap FX products used:

 #love

Heart flowers Mini 

Frame set D loops

Black lace

Film strips

Fancy Feathers small

Words of Love

and some details

and my second idea

A friend needed a gift for her grandparents and ask me if I had an idea.

As I saw the beautiful Newspaper frame  

I thought, perfectly for an vintage project with an old family photo.

I used a chalky finish paint  ‘Vintage’ from DecoArt for outer edge and a Distress Stain ‘Walnut’ ink for inner frame.

Chipboards were also painted with this colors.

Only two paints were enough, I highlighted all with a little bit copper wax

and the frame in altered art was finish.

some details please

I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of products from Scrap FX.

If you’d like to see more, have a look through their store HERE

Thanks for stopping by!

Eternal Love

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

Good morning dear Scrap FX followers,

Claire here to share some “love” material!

I just LOVE the ‘love’ novelties. Although some of them are at first glance more for weddings, they fit perfectly for family designs too.

Here’s my layout with a picture of my daughters.

I really think the Eternal Love chipboard really blends in.

I also used a lot of words from the #love pack and the Hubby & Wifey set, from which the arrows come from.

The Language of Love are really nice too.

Item used:

Eternal Love

#love

Hubby & Wifey set

Language of Love

I wish you a pleasant day, filled with love.

Love you always & and Forever

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on Love you always & and Forever

Hello dear friends

I’m back on the blog today sharing 2 wedding layouts using our beautiful February release. How else better to celebrate the love between 2 people?

#Our story 

Scrap FX Products used:

Damask Heart B LARGE Brocade

Damask Heart A SMALL wire & lace

#love

Hubby & Wifey set

Brocade Lace stencil

In my first layout I started by adding some molding paste through the lace stencil onto @13arts patterned  paper.

Next I splattered it with white acrylic paint and added some  random stamping using black Archival Ink.

As you can see I chose to cut out the inside of the larger chipboard heart to use with my embellishment clusters. I prepared the chipboard with gesso and embossed with light peach and pink embossing powder. Unfortunately it looks white due to the florescent light in which the photo was taken.

The chipboard words were painted with Finnabair  Prima Acrylic paint.

Last but not least I added my embellishments and journaling strips.

#Me & you

Scrap FX Products used:

Black Lace

#love

Celebration of Hearts

In the next layout I again used @13arts paper and splattered it with white acrylic paint.

Next I sprinkled it with @13arts powder and added some water with a spray bottle.

Next I arranged my choice of embellishments.

I decided to use the black lace  but needed it to be white for the purposes of this layout. To resolve this I coated it with 2 layers of white Dylusions spray, drying it between each layer.

Once this was dry I painted my chipboard with white acrylic paint. You will note that I altered the chipboard again by cutting it into 2 pieces.

Next I embossed the rest of the chipboard with steel coloured embossing powder and adhere all the embellishments as I planned it earlier.

Well that’s it from me today so thank you for stopping by.  Please stay tuned for more inspiration by my fellow design team members.

Heartfelt Happiness & Togetherness…. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on Heartfelt Happiness & Togetherness…. by Cindy Porter

Hi all, today I’d like to share with you a couple of my latest pieces I created, Heartfelt Happiness and Togetherness…
The new Heartfelt Happiness title suited this photo so much, a pic of Bill and I having some fun with a photo prop at a friends 40th party….
I painted the title up with Twinkling H2O’s to give it a shine… Twinks are the perfect match for Scrap FX chipboard… they give such lush and shiny colour on the quality chipboard…
To create background texture I used the gorgeous new Brocade Lace Stencil, isn’t it stunning…
I used modelling paste and coloured it up with Twinkling H2O’s to give some gorgeous shine and accentuate that fabulous stencil pattern…
I added one of the new Damask Heart‘s …. isn’t it stunning…. it comes in two different sizes… this is the larger one…
I used the Heart Border Stamp with Twinkling H2O’s to give a matching colour and rustic look… it’s such a cute stamp, don’t you think?…
 for my mini cluster I again used the Brocade Lace Stencil as a base… and the Heart Border Stamp… I added one of the Heart Flowers after cutting off it’s stem… you can see more of the Heart Flowers with their stems on in the next project….
One last look at the completed layout…
Next up I have another layout…. Togetherness
 For this layout… I decided to get a little artsy… and painted a photo extension…. I am super happy with the result… and chose only to add painted Scrap FX pieces to finish off the layout..
 I used two of the Heart Flowers, they come four in a pack and each one is different…. really cute little pieces to finish off your work… I painted them up with Vivid Ultra Metallics…
 For the title I chose Togetherness…. such a great word to describe this photo… and I am totally loving the flourishes on it as well….lurve it!!!
 I also added the #me&you from the #love pack
 a close up of the photo extension… it was a blast creating this layout and I love the simplicity of Scrap FX pieces to finish it off…
one final look…..
thanks for joining me today… I hope you enjoyed the projects…
till next time
happy creating

Steampunk + ocean theme + mixed media = a good mix!

by Kareen Brochu-Harvey | Comments Off on Steampunk + ocean theme + mixed media = a good mix!

Hi crafty friends,

KareenBH here with you today.

I have created a mixed media project with my steampunk chipboards

because I fell in love with them the first time I saw them, but I wasn’t sure what I would do with them.

I am super happy with the result and as you can see, the colors turn out really awesome.

As you can see above, the first thing I did was to glue all my chipboard with hot glue.

– Hot glue works very well with chipboards! –

That way, I had a solid base to work with all my mediums.

Look at the amazing mixed media texture and colours:

My favorite one, I love the seahorse!!

Some close ups:

Products used:

Accessory Cogs – 2015360

Mermaid – 2016405

Steampunk Seahorse – 2016406

Thank your the visit!

Forever Mine – by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Forever Mine – by Amelie

Hello Scrap Fx fans! Amelie with you today to present you my first layout of the month!

I started my layout with a paper from the company Ruby Rock it !. I applied a layer of clear gesso on my entire page. I started playing with the stamp “Fond 03” by MC Collection. I then, using a spatula, laid a little Texture Paste – White crackle and White sand. For the color, I used the magical powder “Cotton Candy”, “Coffee au lait” and “Dark Chocolate Truffle”from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. Before I left dried, I sprinkled some Prima Marketing Stone Arts Mini.

As chipboards, I used “Forever Mine” and “Mini Bouquet”. On the chipboard “Forever Mine” I used the embossing powder “Geranium Coral Blush” from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. The chipboards “Mini Bouquet” were left natural.

I completed my layout by adding a die cut from Prima Marketing, bits of old lace doily, a 7Dots Studio tag and a cut of a punch from Ek Succes. A few flowers of Wild Orchid Craft and a badge have come finalized all!

Thank you for your visit!

Steampunk Hangings

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Steampunk Hangings

Greetings from the North of Sweden! I´m here today to share an idea for an alternative use for your Scrap FX Chipboards. I really love the Fob Watch Butterfly & the Steampunk Seahorse but had trouble finding the perfect project for them. Then I came up with the idea of just hanging them up in a string in the window.

Well, I did not actually “just” hang them in the window. As a true crafter I had to do a little “job” on them first. A couple of layers of metallic paint, crackle paste & gem stones add that extra flair to the hangings.

I painted the butterfly by using my finger tip. I find using a brush is difficult since the paint will find it´s way into all the delicate gaps in the chipboard and clog them up. The finger works perfect (If you don´t care that you go to work looking like a painter the day after…).

The sea horse has two “layers” of chipboard. I painted the smoothe horse with blue paint and then added crackle paste and left to dry over night. When safly dry I added the gear “top” that I first painted with gold & copper paint. I used the same “finger” technique this time. The gem stones looks perfect as eyes, and I love the fine, fine detailing on the seahorse.

I hope I inspired you to try different ways of using your Scrap FX Chipboards. I will surely do this again, loved the result!

Products from Scrap FX:

  • 2016408 Fob Watch Butterfly
  • 2016406 Steampunk Seahorse

Best wishes
