My Brother My Mate

by Renee Aslette | 0 comments

Hello There Scrap FX Friends,

It’s Renee here to share some scrappy creations.

My first share is a layout I created using the title My Brother My Mate.  Which is perfect to show the bond between my two boys.

I used the My Brother My Mate Mini chipboard and my trusty Posca Pens to colour it.

I wanted to get some different colours into the title.  By using the pens I was able to get finer detail.

Here are some close-ups:

On this layout I also used the Chevron Borders Chipboard.  I inked this piece with black Staz On.

My second share is an Art Journal page.  As soon as I laid my eyes on the amazing Houses in a Row stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

I am so happy with how it turned out.  Those colours just make me happy.

And I cannot believe how easy the stamps are to use.  I will be ordering myself some more stamps in the future.

Home is where your story begins.

The details on this stamp are just perfect, there was absolutely no bleeding at all.

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx

A bit of grunge mixed with a touch of pretty.

Good morning dear friends

I am back on the blog today sharing two projects including this grungy page and some vintage birthday cards below.

Scrap Fx Products used:

Fancy Feathers small

Compass Aim

I started by playing with my Geli plate and doing a quick print on the left of my page. Inspired by the All and Create Oceania Challenge, I added a thin piece of paperbark I collected on a bushwalk a couple of years ago.

Next I used one of the new stencils from the Strength in Numbers collection by 13@rts to create this image on a piece of acrylic sheet.

I coloured my chipboard pieces  with white Brilliance  ink and combined them with feathers to create a headpiece.

Last but not least I used Tim Holtz Big chat and Chit Chat stickers to tell the story and reveal some of the thoughts that inspired this page.

The next project I want to share with you is these Vintage Elegance cards I created for my recent classes in Brisbane.

I asked Jill if she would make me a larger version of the Mermaid corner so that I could create this piece… and she is gorgeous in this larger size… not that she isn’t totally fabulous in the original size too….
I used the Angel Fish Stencil to create the fish on the canvas… it’s a super cool stencil…

Masculine layouts by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | 0 comments

1. Layout Just like Daddy

Here is my first layout – there is my hubby and son at photo, they are playing with some kit where are foam pieces and you can cut them and you can make in them holes etc.

For background I used 7 dots studio paper and Pebeo clear gesso. Than I played with many Gelatos and Distress crayons to achieve interesting background. I stamped brick wall with Archival ink and also tiny tools (Frantic stamper stamps). All chipboards are heat ebossed I used Vintage photo distress embossing powder (unfortunately no more for sale) – this embossing powder makes faux rusty look.

ScrapFX chipboards – Just Like Daddy, Ladder and Tools

 

2. A moment to treasure layout

This layout is easier, I played with Kaisercraft papers and stickers and some stamps. From mediums I just used Archival ink, Distress oxide inks and Color philosophy inks. I Used A moment to Treausure chipboard and Dad chipboard.

Have a nice day

Autumn layout by Sharon Ziv (noomish)

by Sharon Ziv | Comments Off on Autumn layout by Sharon Ziv (noomish)

Autumn is nearly here. While sitting outside in the evenings you can feel the breeze and cool wind that is whispering “autumn is nearly here…” and no one is happier than me as it reminds me of the rain, the clean air afterwords, the smell of the wet ground..

So, not surprisingly I found my self drifting into autumn colors and choosing it as a theme for my layout. I started with applying gesso around the picture area in order to soften the paper pattern. Then matting the picture with some complimentary papers (cream, teal and pink). I chose some beautiful autumn coloured flowers and built my composition using ScrapFX chicken wire chipboard. For my title I used the #season theme pack: “autumn”

Home Is…

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on Home Is…

Hey Y’all! Today I have a canvas to share featuring a portion of what home has come to mean for me.

Home Is Where The Flerd Is…

My flerd has a huge chunk of my heart and provide endless blessings to my family, the greatest being love. This little flerd of mine consists of sheep, goats, and a Jersey heifer and I adore capturing them out in the field on gorgeous evenings like the one in the photo.

 

 

This canvas base is wooden and can I tell you how lovely wooden canvases are to work on?? I enjoy the firm background to apply more varied techniques to. This project started by adhering some patterned paper to the background with gel medium. I then used some stamps I carved, using the clouds from the Clouds & Raindrops stencil (2012169) as a template to make them, and stamped them about with paint. I then used the actual stencil to add a couple dimensional clouds with paste and added some glass glitter to them before they dried. From there I added some contrast to all the color going on by stamping with the Gum Tree stamp (2016020) using black gesso. The rich color of black gesso can’t be beat and the little bit of tooth you get from using it is a nice bonus!

 

The Two Storey House Frame was released at the just right time to scrap one of my favorite photos. It is the perfect piece to highlight a slice of home life. To alter this I simply added paint on selected portions of the house and tucked my photo in it. I have found stiffer brushes work wonderfully for painting chippies because I can maintain a bit more control. Paint pens are also a go to for me.

 

After I had all my foundation papers layered up along with the house I saw this cutie sun staring at me in my pile of chippies and thought it would be an adorable piece to add. It simply makes me smile. I painted the inner portion with some watered down paint and added color to the cheeks and lips. To finish off the piece I had to use some homemade glitter glue because sparkle and shimmer on my projects is kind of a must. 😉

 

To finish off this piece it seemed fitting to continue on with the nature type theme and create some leaves and flowers to bring in other patterns/colors and a bit of whimsy to add with the scene. I used the Leaves A Simple stamp (2013344) with black ink and fussy cut them out. The flowers were created with a stamp/die duo. Little sprinklings of beads and sequins for some texture, a few additional stickers, and it was a wrap.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project, I’m pretty chuffed its already hung up on a wall in our house! Do you enjoy creating scenes with your ScrapFX products? Feel free to share your projects on our Facebook page. I’d love to see them.

Until next time, take care! 🙂 Scarlett

Just relaxing – by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Just relaxing – by Amelie

Hello Scrap Fx fans! Amelie with you today to introduce my first creation of September! I created a layout with a lot of dimension. In addition to the Scrap Fx chipboards, I have incorporated dried roots as well as Arts Stones and real feathers. I finished my layout by adding a badge and a flower in foamiran, created by hand. On my chipboards that I left natural, I added a touch of Metallic Wax from Prima Marketing……
