Roadbook (the end!)

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

Dear Scrap FX followers,

Today, I’ll show you the end of my roadbook.

I promise you’ll finally hear the end of it!

First I’d like to share a small tip.

I loved the Art Deco stencil but I wanted to use it a bit differently.

mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-41I first used a very fine black and water resistant pen to outline the shapes.

mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-42I then filled the shapes in with watercoulour.

mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-45

mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-44Finally I cut them to use them as multicouloured leaves on my roadbook.

I’ll now show you the rest of this design. Sorry it is a bit long!

The Art Deco Fan really looked like an exotic leaf to me…

mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-4mayotte-luckie-scrapfx-5I used watersoluble pencils on the Poppy stamp and the Seed Stem Stamp, large.

Hello everyone!

Are you ready to see my new works?

The first project is a layout.

So I took many pics of Alex and roses.)))

On the top I used microbeads.

They look like water drops….

And I present a video on this layout creation.

Hope you find it useful.)))

And  my second project is mixed media canvas.

This boy on the pic is son of my another friend.

Used products:

Hello friends,

I have for you two layouts, both with my family photos.

The first one is with my husband and his mother. It was a long long time ago! :)

I used watercolor paints to make background and to color the chipboards.

I love splashes and stains, it always fits!

This Art Deco Flourish is so decorative, you don’t need other embellishments to make your project more fancy.

Kerstin-BlogFramed

Hi, my name is Kerstin-Inga Peters  a very long name, or ;-)? that’s why  aka Kerstin F. (Filou) in crafty land. I come from Germany and have been creating for many years now, always in search of new techniques and yet unexplored territory .  I’m a modern girl with a big vintage heart and love the things that are old and nobody wants anymore, because they have a history. My big passion are colours and textures. With Scrapbooking, Mixed Media Style and Art Journaling I have found ‘my’ perfect favourite genres – as it combines words and pictures, thoughts and feelings, and the application of various innovative techniques and the idea of telling stories. In addition I also have a foible for the industrial grunge – Steampunk Style, it combines nostalgia, vintage and the idea of using future technology in a  brave new world. So I love to work with stencils, stamps and chipboards on Layouts or other mixed media projects, because this a perfect addition and there are so many opportunities to create. It’s a favourite employment of me to invent always new and try out and so I will also often be good for a surprise ! I look forward to this new adventure and hope to inspire you with my various ideas and projects :-)!

*****

Hello and welcome everyone!

Kerstin here and I’m very happy and proud to share with you my first projects and inspirations for our Scrap FX DT.

Layout Sun & Sea

I love the sea and as I saw the beautiful chipboards, stencil and stamps on this store, I thought – yes , here I’m right.

Such wonderful embellishments to create some layouts as memories on beautiful vacation days.

 Materials from Scrap FX

2016132 Organic embellishment

2016150 Wordlet

2016138 Bulrush embellishment

2013412 Coral stamp

2013413 Coral stencil

I added with my fingers some Texture sand paste for the wordlet, let it dry and painted it with acrylic yellow colour and a little bit white,finally I highlighted the sand texture with a blue metallic wax cream.

 IMG_0075

 

On background can you see the fantastic

 Coral stamp and  Coral stencil

I used only pieces of them with archival ink in black and white and the stencil with white gesso.

 I used a mixture of  paint dabbers and acrylic ink

can you see, on the bulrush embellishment.

IMG_0157IMG_0078

 

And the next project :-)

A simple wooden photo frame with a chalky vintage look.

The delicate colours are perfect together, with only one beautiful embellishment as framing

Here can you see our sunshine ‘Filou’ it’s a sheltie male dog.

 together with a white acrylic paint dabber.

And my second layout:

A man and his best friend

My second favourite theme beside the sea is the vintage style,

I love the things that are old, because they have a history.

Scrap FX products

Art Deco Numbers 

Retro Technology

Squared stamp 

Remember this moment

IMG_0155

For a rustic altered look, I used these materials for chipboards:

Firstly colored with silver metallic paint, then added a little rustic acrylic color.

Finally I used the splash painting technique with Shimmer Mister white

(only on the cool radio embellishment)

 

 

IMG_0089

 Art deco embellishments are highly suitable for a vintage altered look.

I love the old camera and radio, together with Squared stamp  really created a perfect retro feel.

IMG_0093

I added a lot of layers and embellishments on the background, all in light to brown shades.

All paper layers are torn and inked with distress paint.

You have so many opportunities with these embellishments,

 stamps and stencils, try it out and have fun!

Thanks for your visit &

Happy crafting !

Sweet Card and Mixed Media Mask

by Marie Johansson | 1 Comment

I´m sharing my two late May projects today – a sweet newborn card and a mixed media mask {includes a process video}. I loved working with the new Art Deco style chipboards that where brand new in April. My choice for these projects where the Art Deco Flourish, the Art Deco Plaque & the Organic Embellishment.

IMG_0954

I have used different patterned papers and die cuts to create my card. I stacked them together with pieces of cardboard in between, and then added the Art Deco Plaque on top. As you can see it has been painted brown (or rather sprayed) with Tattered Angels Simply Sheer Mist.

Some details:

IMG_0955

IMG_0956

 

And now to my second project – a Mixed Media Mask. I bought this mask with the intention of making a gift for my 8 year-old daughter. When I got my hands on the Art Deco Flourish and the Organic Embellishments I just felt like they where a match made in heaven for this mask. This is the result:

Some details:

Describing how I made this is not that easy so I hope this process video will clear things up for you.

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • Art Deco Plaque 2016131
  • Organic Embellishment 2016132
  • Art Deco Flourish Small 2016126S

Thank you for visiting the Scrap FX blog today!

Vintage Meets Modern – Two layouts by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 2 Comments

scrapfxmay2

Hi there! It’s Riikka from Paperiliitin here sharing two pages with you. The other one is sweet, romantic with a touch of vintage in it and other one blue and more modern. Both are done using mainly the new collection.

Let’s start with the vintage styled one. The photo on the page is of my daughter who sat by the window of my mother-in-law’s summer cabin just minutes after we had arrived to the place. The light was perfect and luckily I had my camera nearby so I managed to capture the fleeting moment before it was gone. Somehow her pose and the light from the window reminded me about a poet or a painter. To tell you the truth, she was actually sketching and drawing the scenery.

scrapfxmay2d1

I wanted to make a soft page out of the photo which actually captures something quite essential of my older one. I chose to go with a tiny rose patterned paper which has the air of days gone by and some tea stains, too. I continued the soft look with the chipboards I chose to use but also with the flowers. A touch of earth is also added to the page as I added some acorn hats in there as well.

scrapfxmay2d2

The background of the page is done using the “Squared” stamp and the “Art Deco” stencil. I also added some watercolor in there to continue the dyed look. The main composition of the page is done by adding the “Art Deco Flourish” to the side of the photo while the “Art Deco Border” decorates the other side. I’ve also included one letter from the “Art Deco Alphabet” set to my page from the new collection.

There’s also the birds from the “Ornate Clock” in there as  well as a flower, a butterfly and the bow from past collections – can you spot them all? All the chippies are left in their original color but the harsh black birds got some white color on them to make them a little grayish.

scrapfxmay2d3

Materials from Scrap FX:

2016145 Squared Stamp

2016148 Art Deco Stencil

2016126L Art Deco Flourish Large

2016125 Art Deco Border

2016140 Art Deco Alphabet

2006192 Funky Flower Buttons

2008157 Butterflies, mixed

2015101 Ornate Clock Large

2015079 Ribbon Adornments

scrapfxmay2d4

Where the first page was with touches of vintage and romance, the other one is more modern and with cooler colors. There’s some browns in it as well, but the air is totally different.

scrapfxmay3

I think I have done several pages about Egersund already but that town really was quite extraordinary. The weather was great when we drove there from the airport and the town itself was like from a fairy tale, like the title says. Between workshops I was running up the hill and took a few quick photos before heading back to be ready for the students. Luckily Brit actually said to me the very first day that previous teachers were doing that also, so I didn’t feel too weird with these short spurs to see the town.

scrapfxmay3d1

As you may notice, the background treatment in this page is quite similar to the one I did for the other page as well. The shape is different but I used the same stamp and the same stencil in this layout also than in the previous page. The painty touches on top of the modeling paste are done using again watercolors.

scrapfxmay3d2

Where as I left the chippies untouched in the first page in here I treated some of them. The feathers are double embossed – first a layer of white then another layer of white with sprinkled pale blue powder here and there. I quite like the look that created!

The chippies also include two swirls from the “Bulrush Embellishments”, one piece from the “Retro Technology” set and also letters E and S from the “Art Deco Alphabet” set. They stand for EgerSund.

Thank you for your visit today!

Love everyday

Hello friends

It is Anguree here. Today I have 2 projects to share with you, featuring some of the beautiful new chipboard designs for this month.

Love Every day

Scrap FX May

My first layout features various chipboard and Scrap FX products and shows you how you can overlay and combine different pieces of chipboard to add texture and how to create a mat for your photos and embellishments.

This is how I did it:

1-20160514_105329-002

Stamp the Squared stamp on your pattern paper using green Archival ink.

1-20160511_220854

Cut a strip of Industrial Machines Transparency and stemple it using the numbers stamp and  Colour Blast texture Paste and let it dry.  My strip is approximately 3.25 inches wide. (You could also use any other suitable paint for this purpose as the impressions will only be a light layer for added texture).

1-20160514_114713

Cut your patterned paper approximately a half inch smaller on 2 sides and mat onto black cardstock. Add the Transparency strip to the left side and add grip tape onto the transparence and stamped section on the right.

1-20160514_123342 - Copy

Paint the numbers and Art Deco Doodad with any suitable brand of paint, you have. Colour the Art Deco panels with black Archival ink.

PicsArt_05-16-11.19.11

Add some texture paste using the Words of Wisdom Stencil and let dry.

1-20160514_125313-001

1-20160514_125335

Layer chipboard onto the page and determine the placement of the photo. The larger Art Deco panel was put underneath, while the smaller panel was used at the top.

Cut the hidden chipboard under the photo and add to the left side of the page.

 Add some colour around the photos using your favourite ink spray or watercolour.

Once the chipboard is glued, add some texture using a script stamp.

1-20160514_144758

Add a combination of cotton, glass glitter, glass and micro beads for texture around the photo and onto the chipboard pieces to the right of the page.

20160516_090938

Cut some  words for your titles and subtitle using word die and use in combination with existing ephemera for your title. I also added suitable word phrases by Tim Holtz for my journaling.

larger image Flourish 18 Grand Flourish

This layout is really simple and only features a single piece of chipboard.  I guess for me, this proves that less can be more at times because this single piece was perfect to draw the attention to the photo.

20160512_075311 (1)

I simply swirled black acrylic paint onto the background and waited for it to dry.

I coloured my Grand flourish with black Archival ink and cut a title from black cardstock.

Once the paint was dry I added my flourish to the swirled paint to create a frame for my photo.  Last but not least I added a couple of enamel dots and a single phrase of journalling.

I hope you enjoyed my post today and look forward to chat to you early next month.

Thank you so much for visiting.
