Misty here to share a layout and a journal cover (and a video).
I’m still using the awesome steampunk chippies that I adore so much! It is absolutely my favorite theme of the year!
For the background I used the Ripples Stencil with modeling paste and Tattered Angels mists. Then I embellished behind my photo with the funky Construction Collage chipboard. I cut it up pieced it out so I could spread it behind my page a little.
Then I went to town on the wings! They were so much fun to create with the new Grungy Wing Stencil…I went to my old stand by technique using modeling paste (don’t know what I ever done before modeling paste), then I fussy cut those babies and placed them behind the picture.
The grungy (tattered looking) wings and perfectly imperfect word seemed to go well with how I felt when creating this layout. I’m not the typical woman who can multi task well, or be everywhere at once. Lately, I’ve felt spread pretty thin and I’ve finally come to the conclusion that it’s ok. I may not be that awesome mom who’s always organized and ready to go, or that crafter that’s able to juggle work, family, and creative time well…but I do have moments where I shine in each one of those things. Plus, just ask my kids…they think I’m pretty awesome, even when I am a hot mess!
Now onto the journal…
I won’t give too many details here. Instead I have a start to finish video to share:
I’m Romain, 33y old, married and father of 4. I started scrapbooking 4years ago. I‘m really a creative addict :p I do art journals, art canvas, mixed media and videos. I have done some polymer clay, some sewing, I really like to try anything.
Introducing new design team member: Riikka Kovasin
My name is Riikka Kovasin. I’m a mixed media style crafter from Finland with a passion to have my fingers inked on a weekly basis. They usually turn blue, which is my favorite color, but sometimes yellow, red or even green.
Scrapbooking layouts are my biggest passion, but I also love to create canvases, cards and recently I’ve grown an interest on ATCs. I’ve been doing layouts about five years now but discovered my passion for inks, paints and layering about two years ago. I love creating my own backgrounds, leaving my own hand print in them and making them “my own”. For me the process of creating is equally important than the end result.
I’m married to the love of my life and we have two sweet daughters together. We live in the capital, Helsinki near the city center. My family is a constant source of inspiration and also the main subject on my pages.
You can find me from these sites, please come and say hi!
Hello there! It’s Riikka Kovasin here sharing my very first post to the ScrapFX! I’m so delighted and so honored to be here!
These first projects I made using the lovely stencils and stamps ScrapFX has. There’s a big variety of them both and lots of possibilities to use them. The effect they make on the project greatly differs concerning which paint media you are using. You can go 3 D with pastes or create a watercolor like effect with mists or inks. There’s so many possibilities to choose from!
Here in my first page I’ve used the Random Dots Stencil in the background with a few different media. The raised areas are made with modeling paste. I’ve also added ink through the stencil creating the dark brown patterns and lastly I used a white Sharpie to draw the circles to the background. The repeating the same shape keeps the over all appearance light even though there’s many layers and many mediums.
I created my own patterned papers using the Feather Stamps with different inks. I also cut some of the feathers out of the paper and used them as embellishments. They fit the theme of the page well which is soaring with the new summer shoes.
In this second page I used the Feather Stamps to make the background. I used acrylic paint in a few shades of blue and in white instead of ink and stamped the feathers repeatedly across the background. I also added a touch of mist through the Random Dots Stencil to the background just behind the photo.
This page is made inspired by a quote I found on Pinterest. “Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.” This would apply to both of my daughters but the bluish color scheme I decided to use led my thoughts to my younger daughter.
And of course I had to do a similar style inspirational page to my older daughter as well! The inspiration to this page was another quote I stumbled upon. “It’s through the fall that you’ll realize you can fly.” To me that’s a quote about daring, daring to take the jump to discover the wings.
This time I chose to go with a pink color scheme and used again the Random Dots Stencil in the making of the background. The darker pink dots are made using ink and the sparkling lighter pink ones are done using embossing powder. I used the watercolor style stamped feathers as embellishments and add a few feather chippies from the Mini Feathers as the finishing touch.
Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a great day!
I used a lot of amazing chipboards, fantastic stamps, great silhouettes and stencils !!!!
Let´s get started !
My first project is a layout I started doing from a photo of a child , the photo is fabulous and the truth is that I went a little crazy while I was creating the background …
I used a lot of stunning things to get this result !
IT´S MY PARTY!!!
The second layout is a little different to what I’m doing normally …
I used the purple and orange which in principle are not my favorite colours but they combine very well with the photo, I added a silhouette, some embossing stamps and with that I created this different layout !
and finally,even though Christmas is finished … I could not resist to alter this beautiful reindeer !!!!
I layered lots of textures and colors on !!! I love green and turquoise and I think it was the best choice to give life to this little reindeer!
And this is it! I hope you have enjoyed the three projects! see you soon!
Today I am sharing two projects for ScrapFX using tons of their yummy chippies, stamps, and stencils.
I made my first A4 size layout and it was a lot of fun. I went for a vintage theme for the layout. I layered lots of texture and color on the layout. Because I used red and green, its really easy for these two colors to mix and turn into a neutral color, which I let them mixed on purpose on this layout, because the color mix creates a more vintage and distressed feeling here. But for a more vibrant layout, let the two colors dry in between so you don’t get the neutral brown.
