Hi friends! Elodie here to share with you 2 projects that I made with some of the new steampunk releases.

For the first project I made a robot lamp for decorating my scraproom.

 For this lamp I used a Tim Holtz configuration box for making the base of my robot.

I paint the box with black acrylic paint and a touch of  metallic copper paint. I painted the cogs with different metallic paints and I embossed the other element with UTEE powder.

Inside the box I used mixed media techniques.

I made the little robots with a box that I made with cardstock and metallic tape  then I painted with alcohol ink.

I used  led lights, It’s a small christmas garland lol.

To hide the threads behind I used straw that I covered with embossed metallic tape.

Life is a Celebration… – Group Post, Part 1

by Scarlett | 3 Comments

Hey There Scrap FX Fans!  It’s group post time and with it being a festive time of year we wanted a festive type theme, but didn’t care to limit ourselves.  Therefore a magnificent recipe was gathered together by the team and it fit just perfectly:

Recipe Challenge

Quote to be inspired by and/or use: “Life is a Celebration, enjoy it well.” Uruj Shahid Whether

Color: White + One (may use black as accent)

Inspiration/Theme: Celebration

Add some sparkle!

Journal it!

Incorporate some geometric shapes

Add a bit of you to the page! Make it yours!

Delightful recipe to tackle right??  Let’s see what the first round of gals came up with.

Anita

unconditional love - Anita Bownds dec 2014 SCRAPFX DT (1)

Anita is celebrating Unconditional Love (2013153) with her gorgeous white + light blue page.  I love how she has softly played up this adorable photo of her cat, I mean what is there not to love about that face??!  All of her paper layers and each fussy cut flower are perfectly placed to create a striking balance a wonderful white space.  I always find it interesting to see what paper combos Anita will mix, she has a way with mixing interesting patterns with floral patterns I’d never think of trying – love that.

unconditional love - Anita Bownds dec 2014 SCRAPFX DT (4)

Anita used a lot of white throughout her page, per the recipe, but here on her wordlet she decided to bust out with the spray paint.  Check out how nicely finished it looks.  Pretty snazzy right??!  I really need to get some spray paint in my life I think…

unconditional love - Anita Bownds dec 2014 SCRAPFX DT (2)

The geometric shape Anita chose to work with throughout her page was a circle.  You can see this throughout the design of the actual main area of the page and in this close up shot where she has use the Random Dots Stencil (2013172) for some background texture. This is also where Anita incorporated her sparkle, this is how:

“I mixed impasto with a drop of light blue paint and added a bit of white glitter and mixed it and applied it to the stencil
And flicked light blue watercolours  over the top of the stenciled background”

I must admit this is one of my favorite things to do with the Random Dots Stencil as well.  It looks so marvelous all sparkly as Anita’s project shows off so well!! :)

Products Used

Cindy

P1220540a

Cindy is all about celebrating life by documenting a very special birthday!  This white + shades of coral beauty is all about her 1st birthday.  She has used the recipe to create a sweet and girly LO filled with layer upon layer of textural goodness. Let’s take a closer look…

P1220540b

Here you can see where the clustering begins.  This is just to get you all excited for what’s to come.  You’ll notice how Cindy has used a Clock Hand (2008131) piece here amongst her cluster.  It really works so well and you wouldn’t really know it was a clock hand at all if I hadn’t told you, right?  Well, perhaps some of you would have known, but you get the idea… there are so many uses for pieces if you just put your thinking cap on!  I may need some clock hands now…

P1220540c

In this shot you can see the stamping Cindy did with the new Harlequin Stamp (2014380).  This is such a cool and versatile design.  Over that she layered her stenciling with the Chevron Stencil (2012152).  I don’t know that I naturally would have gone to combine these two patterns together but I must say I’m so glad Cindy did. They look pretty intriguing and marvelous so I think I may play around with this.

P1220540d

One last shot where you can see the Chevron Stencil (2012152) pattern a bit clearer.  You can also see how Cindy jazzed up all her beautiful flowers even further by giving them dustings of glitter.  So pretty!!  More clock hands are used here as additions to the cluster as well.

Products Used

Chevron Stencil (2012152)

Harlequin Stamp (2014380)

Claire

lifeis-luckie-scrapfx

Claire has no problems boldly sharing her feelings on life being a celebration!!  I mean how could she not enjoy it, with that lil’ cutie on her hands?? :)  Her white + yellows scheme here is perfectly suited for such a sunshiny statement and she even has the word life highlighted like a sun – love it.

lifeis-luckie-scrapfx-3

Claire used circles as her geometric shape on the page.  The Funky Number Party (2014329) piece was perfectly suited to go along with this theme.  She split this piece to go along both sides of the photos.  I love how there are so many other natural colored elements in this shot to blend with the raw chippie, don’t you?

lifeis-luckie-scrapfx-2

In this shot we’re going to focus on the background which was created with the Dot Stamp (2014289). Claire inked up her stamp with some watercolor paint and then stamped it onto her background to get her image.  It creates a sort of dreamy stamped image that is clear yet fully crisp like you would get if you used ink.  A fun little bit in this shot to take note of also is Claire’s sparkle by way of studs.  Super funky and fun.

Products Used

Dot Stamp (2014289)

Funky Number Party (2014329)

Three very different but equally spectacular takes on the recipe challenge.  The rest of the team will be up soon with their takes.  If you’re inspired by the recipe and create something feel free to share with us on our Facebook page. Until next time, take care and happy creating!

Steampunk Off The Page

by Rebecca Genet | 4 Comments

 Hi it’s Bec here today with two steampunk creations for you. I have to admit that when I found out that this month was all about steampunk I did have a mini panic attack, I’ve never made anything steampunk before – but I like a challenge and once I saw how gorgeous the new chipboard pieces were I knew I had to try and make something great with them. This is what I came up with………

Altered Dragonfly Cage

P1010750 cropped

Here’s how I put it together. I found this white cage in a bargain shop for $4.50 (I think it’s meant to go with candles??) and I painted it with black gesso. These are the Scrap FX Chipboard pieces I used (mini feathers not shown).

   P1010704 cropped P1010707 cropped

I cut and arranged the chipboard pieces Steampunk Feather Collage, Steampunk WhimsySteampunk Barbed Wire Collage and Propellers in the shape of a dragonfly. I secured the chipboard to the cage using jewellery wire. Then I added on the Mini Flying Wings, Mini Feathers, Cogs, mini, Cogs and rest of the Propellers as well as some flowers to the cage.

   P1010730 croppedP1010734 cropped

I also added on some metal embellishments before I sprayed the whole thing in a mix of brown, blue and teal sprays. I finished off by rubbing some Inka-Gold in gold over the whole thing to give it a pretty golden shine and finally some rhinestones and pearls.

Steampunk Whimsy 2014366

 

Steampunk Canvas

I loved this new Steampunk Dress Form as soon as I saw it, and I knew the new Steampunk Wings would go perfectly with this dress form. I thought my dress form could use a stand so I used the bottom half of a Lamp Post B Lantern. Around the edges I layered up a mix of chipboard, metal trinkets and glass beads. On the Background I’ve used the new Grungy Wing Stencil with modeling paste, then I painted and sprayed to get the colours I wanted before I rubbed some Inka-gold in Gold on top. Finally a added a few rhinestones and pearls, no flowers though – I think this is my first flower free project in forever :)

Just a bit of vintage grunge

by Alison Callcott | 3 Comments

Morning peeps!

Steampunk. Hmm. This is going to be challenging. Yes I like to get grungy on occasion and, shock horror LOL, even get my hands dirty! Actually my manicurist laments the state of my hands most times I see her LOL! But getting back to the subject at hand .. Steampunk. What on earth was I going to do? So not a style I’ve tried on before. So not sure if I want to. But wow, talk about versatile. I think I’m just a little in love with the latest releases!

How lucky am I that my husband had kept a few of his childhood toys? I’m even luckier that he was more than happy to take photos of them! Because of their age, (sorry sweetheart but they’re almost antiques), I wanted to create something with a vintage feel and the gold on the train practically demanded I use a warm colour scheme. I didn’t really have anything that suited my purposes in my stash, so did what I love to do best .. create my own background. Of course I had to start off with a piece of 1.8mm Chipboard Sheet 12 x 12″ (2013409) and lots of layering, including using the Number Border stencil, small (2014019) with texture paste, and in my final layer, the Rivet Beams large (2014377) and Rivet Beams small (2014378). Of course I had to use the Rivet Beams .. they reminded me of train tracks, so I also used the Construction Collage (2014374) (the perfect accompaniment to the Rivet Beams) to frame my photo by cutting it into two separate pieces. Although you can’t see it in the photos, after spraying my chipboard black I used a little Silks acrylic glaze to add just a hint of shimmer. The end result is very reminiscent of coal which, to me, seems apt.

I knew I wouldn’t want to repeat the colour scheme when scrapping my next photo, so desaturated it when doing my post photo editing in PhotoShop. As a result I was able to go down a completely different colour pathway and experiment with more of the Scrap FX Stencils and Stamps. After I had gessoed my base I used the Cogs Stamp (2013284) with silver embossing powder, the Random Dots stencil (2013172) with texture paste and distress ink, and then the Harlequin Stamp (2014380) with archival ink, after which I did some water colour painting. All of my chipboard embellishments, including the alphas for my title, were heat embossed with embossing powder. Incidentally, for a foam stamp, I was more than impressed by the crisp, clear image I got from the Harlequin Stamp (2014380)! Note to self .. buy more of the Scrap FX Stamps.

Its All Pretty – Anita Bownds

Hi everyone

Anita here sharing some creations using the new chipboard this month.

If you haven’t checked it out, its a must!! as the chippies are so lovely this month you will want them all! lol

I created this card using the Steampunk Dress Form (2014356)

and the beautiful papers from Heidi Swapp

thank you so much - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (1)

I used a white stamp pad and stamped it all over the chipboard then I heat dried the ink and added some shimmerz inklings

then added some pearls.

thank you so much - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (2)

For my layout I started with my background using mists on the Harlequin Stamp Model: 2014380,

stamping it randomly over the white background then i flicked green watercolour to match my patterned paper.

background of you has my heart

You has my heart - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (1)

Then I painted my chipboard Love (hearts) You  (2014384)

white so that when i put pink on the chipboard it would stand out

and tucked it in behind my layers of patterned paper.

You has my heart - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (2)

You has my heart - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (4)

As you can see I wanted to use the word (you) from the Love (hearts) You (2014384)

chipboard so I cut the word away from it and placed it as part of my title.

You has my heart - Anita Bownds dec 2014 Scrapfx DT (5)

So I hope you get inspired this month to play with Scrap FX chipboard

Happy Crafting!
