Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

Belinda here…cheers to the weekend and some happy scrapping

Does anyone ever keep a bag of “crap” that contains things that you at one time think “OHHH, I can use that on a scrap page?” – well I certainly do…for this layout I decided to play lucky dip with my crap bag – I didn’t look and just picked out the first thing I grabbed which happened to be the Dominoes motif from my son’s first ever work shirt; consequently that was then the motivation behind my page.There are some great products I am using that ScrapFX has to purchase……go to the store and have a browse or ask your local retailer to order some in for you!, I guarantee you that you will find something you “must have”.

As always I’m excited to see what YOU create with these products – don’t forget to share your layouts/projects on Scrap FX Creative Space on Facebook.

I have created this layout using the following Scrap FX products: Antiquities Transparency, Star Outlines, Loopy Script Collage Paper and Circles and Lines Stamp

Here are some close ups of the products I have used

I have also done a step by step for you to follow if you would like to use any of the techniques I have used to put my page together

Many thanks for visiting the blog today

Till next time……happy crafting

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you a tag with lots of Scrap FX goodies.

I have just purchased some pots of coloured wax and not knowing how to use them, I took to YouTube and was inspired by a Prima Marketing video by Keren Tamir.

I have used a large tag for my base which I added some gloss gel to with the Botanical Stencil.  Once dry I have coated this in Colour Blast Black Gesso.

I have then assembled a few pieces with a thick matte medium and left to dry overnight.  I think I have stuck the wings the wrong way round but am really happy with them like this.  The body piece of my insect has been made by building up a few chipboard pieces.  A piece from the Chess Set, a key from Bund of Keys and lastly a Crown.

These have all been adhered to my tag with a few miscellanious bits from my stash.  I used all the colours of things that were my least fave because they are all going to end up coated in black gesso.

I’ve added a couple of Triangle Tags and a Duo Hearts chipboard piece to the top on my tags.  These were all painted in black gesso.  The Heart piece has had a small piece of paper coloured  and attached to the back to colour the cut out piece.

The next day I have painted the whole piece with black gesso and attacked it with my new addiction, wax.  They go on amazingly simply and so soft and lush on the chipboard pieces.  It’s delicious.

I used a few different colours and the Patina Blue to highlight parts of the focal point.

The title is a Bracket Word Mini, this has been painted and a metal frame with a layer of charcoal wax added over top.

Hope you’ve been inspired ♥

Keep Calm with Friends

Hi there,

Today I am sharing two mixed media pieces that i have created with lots of layers.

Over a white gesso base, I created a dreamy first layer with Archival & Distress oxide reinkers & rubbing alcohol.

The Leafy Landscape Rice paper designed by Niamh Baly for Scrap FX was torn into strips & applied with matte gel medium.

 Patterns drawn randomly through the Zebra Circles stencil with markers.

Crackle texture paste was applied & embossed with gold & rock texture embossing powder.

White asemic writing & highlights with a posca pen.

Distress Crayons rubbed in to accentuate the textures.

The Jewelled Bird Stamp was clear heat embossed with a sprinkle of green & blue powders added.

A quote from the Art Phrases Transparency was added as a sentiment.

The Field of Flowers image was also stamped with Black ink then clear heat embossed.

Sprinkles of gold embossing powder added as well for shiny highlights.

Below is the ‘Friends’ Creation.  It was made using similar techniques.

A slightly darker background this time created from the Archival reinkers & Alcohol over a white gesso base.

I tore up the same Rice paper to make a colourful base for the Scribble Alphabet Transparency  focal point “Friends”

The Words of Wisdom stencil was used with Transparent texture paste & then heat embossed with Birds egg Distress embossing glaze in opposing corners.

Tiny collage houses & Lightbulb transparencies were also applied with matte gel medium.

Highlights & textures accentuated with Distress Crayons & white posca pen.

Happy Creating

Cheers for now

Scrapbook pages by Heike

by Heike Bruhn | 0 comments

Hello together,
 nice that you’re over today for my second blog post for the company ScrapFx Australia.
 For my second blog post I challenged myself.
 I have used a photo of my children three times. Once on a scrapbook page of the down under paper collection of 13arts and twice on white background paper DIN4, with an abstract design.
 The new collage papers from ScrapFx are excellent for this style.
It is always surprising what an effect a photo can have on the background. Although the photo is the same I have the feeling that it comes across differently on the three projects.
My first project is a scrapbook page in mixed media style. For this I used the sweet Australian animal chipboards from ScrapFX. Many craft people around the world saw the Q and A from Tim Holtz.
 I have also seen them and the embossing powder/ crayon technique speaks to me!!. I knew immediately, this technique I want to apply for the chipboards from ScrapFx. The only thing what I changed was the color under the glaze. I uesd watercolor.
Travel views…
a closer look…
and my two abstract pages..
I used from ScrapFX:
Australian Animals
Amazing Views only the word views
Ocean transparency
Blueprint ricepaper
Art Phrase stencil
Circle border stencil
Damask Border stencil
Gasket stencil
Buttons B Script stamp
Chicken Wire Stamp
Circle collage stamps
Grosgrain & Dots stamp
Harlequin Stamp
Number Crunch stamps
Round & Round stamp
Scribble Circle Stamp
Square collage stamps
I also used:
 13arts products so as:
 Watercolor set, color glow, clear gesso, gel medium and Down under paper 30cm x 30cm,
 Ranger Tim Holtz: word stickers,  distress glaze and distress crayons.
Many thanks for your visit my blog post today.
Have a beautiful start in the new month.
xoxo

Art journal page by Lisa

by Lisa Rabellino | Comments Off on Art journal page by Lisa

Hi friends!

Lisa today on the blog and I’m happy to share with you my new art journal page with Scrap Fx products! In this moment in my life art journaling is my happy place, and you?

To start I glued some pieces of Scrap Fx collage paper. Then I brushed a coat of clear gesso and I used Distress crayons and blended them with water for a watercolor effect.

After that I used some Scrap Fx stamps with archival inks

I made scribbles and marks with black pen and a watercolor pencil.

I   glued a graffiti silhouette from Scrap Fx paper as my focal point and some sentiments for the quote of my page.

I used these products from the store:

Gypsy Soul- By Tanya Froud

by Tanya Froud | Comments Off on Gypsy Soul- By Tanya Froud

Hi Guys
Tanya Here,

Today I have a Scrapbook page to share with using  the Gypsy Doodles

http://www.scrapfx.com.au/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=68&products_id=5638&zenid=e4b90a78701b84e275889f67bf66f393

The collage paper is a great and easy way to make striking and simple backgrounds for your scrapbook page.

First I gessoed heavy weight white cardstock. Dried it then stuck down the mandala then the large flower (I cut the leaves off and arranged them a bit differently) with mat gel medium

I then added color using the Colorblast Artist Ink, by smooshing it onto my page with a piece of plastic packaging. I added a touch of gold with a gold pen, coloring bits of the design. Once the photo was stuck down i finished it of with some pen work, and a metal peacock charm.

Well that’s it from me…

Until next time!!!

‘Be Too Much’ Art Journal Page by Elisa Ablett

Hi Scrap FX Fans,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest inspiration for you, a neon bright Art Journal page.

 I just love the new mini Funky Folk silhouettes designed by Michelle Logan, perfect for the A5 and A4 sized Art Journals.

To start this layout I stamped with the new Doodles pattern stamp and once dry I added yellow watercolour ink over the top.

I then gel printed onto black cardstock using different coloured paint with the Floral Window Stencil. I also stamped using the Doodles stamp again as well to tie it in.

I fussy cut one of the Gypsy doodles designed by Tanya Froud onto the background and added ink over the top to blend in with the background.

I love using recycled baby wipes on my projects, so I used a fan fold on this brightly coloured dried baby wipe and stapled it to a piece of card and added it to my page. I love the brightness and texture it adds to my project.

 

Here are the Scrap FX products used to create the art journal page:

There are some great products I am using that ScrapFX has to purchase……go to the store and have a browse or ask your local retailer to order some in for you!, I guarantee you that you will find something you “must have”.

It must be some sort of “LOVE” month for me, my previous layout was of my honeymoon and now (as I celebrated 20 years of marriage) I decided to do a wedding day page…go figure

As always I’m excited to see what YOU create with these products – don’t forget to share your layouts/projects on Scrap FX Creative Space on Facebook.

I have created this layout using the following Scrap FX products: Never Stop Dreaming, Dreamcatcher Black, and Daisy Flowers Black

Here are some close ups of the products I have used

  

I used some mixed media ( stencil, ink and spray) to complement the amazing colours within the patterned paper, a bit of muslin and a paper doily and BOOM – simple but effective

Mixed media layout and art journal page by Heike`s AugenBlick

by Heike Bruhn | Comments Off on Mixed media layout and art journal page by Heike`s AugenBlick

Hello my dear blog readers,
I am happy the lockdown is lifted, we are allowed to go outside and we are allowed to do sports without contact I missed my tai chi and sword fighting exercises very much: my trainer is also very happy; I have the opportunity to train 5 hours per week. Yeah. I want to be back in good shape, in no time :)..
But anyway.
Here is my first inspiration for the month of June for you.
I created a mixed media scrapbook layout and an art journal page.
You are amazing…
is my title for my mixed media scrapbook layout.
To this page I have to tell you a little story about the stencil which I used as embellishment.
I don`t know what was going on with my brain in the time when I was creating this page, hahaha… while I was busy with my DT project I have heard an audiobook. With the thought that I have a silhouette in my hand I cut this beautiful stencil. This happens when I was with the thoughts at the audiobook.. Ok, I have to admit it looks very nice and fits perfectly to my background.
My photos are from the magazine “Vogue”. I used the new paper collection from 13@rts and  also lots of mediums as well.
Here are a closer look to my page.
On the big photo I added a layer of ultra thick embossing powder. Behind the transparency from
Scrap FX I added alcohol ink.
Here is the beautiful stencil.
The letter transparency is one of my favourite transparency of Scrap FX. I added behind the words white
acrylic paint.
For the chipboards, my steps are: 1.clear gesso. 2. painting with Rainbow color. 3. embossing with embossing powder. 4. coloring with gold splash ink.
And for my second inspiration I created an art journal page. Also with a photo images from “Vogue”.
I started with a color glow and white gesso background mix. After everything was dry,
I glued the beautiful collage paper on my page. Then I added a white wash to my page.
After that lots of stamping work and highlighting with crayons. Tim Holtz word stickers as embellishments.
I used from ScrapFX:
Diamond Chains stencil
Large Window C PANED chipboard
Gothic Windows chipboard
Art Words transparency
Science transparency
Words of Wisdom stencil
Gothic Window stamp
Blossom Stem Stamp
Number set stamps
Squared stamp
Thank you so much for your visit.
Until my next post 29.06.2020

Vintage cards using distress glazes – by Niamh

by Niamh Baly | Comments Off on Vintage cards using distress glazes – by Niamh

Hi All,

I love vintage and texture, so these simple cards combine both, and they’re pretty quick to make too. Using the new distress glazes to transform a recycled piece of packaging into a textured panel is so much fun. Add some vintage dolls and the amazing mini phrases from Scrap FX to finish off the focal points.

Here is a sample of the finished cards and below is a step by step video on how to create these cards at Home. Best bit is, you can do the same technique on scrapbook pages, metal objects and in your art journal pages – so expect to see textured, embossed panels everywhere!!!

Here is the link to the process video:

Here are the chipboard phrases I used in the cards above.

Make sure you subscribe to the Scrap FX youtube channel to see the whole range of process videos all using the wonderful Scrap FX products.

Happy Creating,

Niamh
