Hello, it’s Kasia here with a small new project.

I made a tag with colorful background. I used Chicken Wire to make a texture and acrylic paints to add colors.

Animal projects by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 1 Comment

scrapfcjuly2

Hello there Scrap FX fans! It’s Riikka here to share my two animal projects with you. Usually I have something that connects the projects, but this time these are quite different. I made a layout celebrating my father’s new dog and then there’s a set of cards. The projects don’t have a similar color scheme or theme, other than the theme of the new release, but what they do have in common is the strong vision I had for both when seeing the new products.

scrapfcjuly2d1

Like I said, this layout is about my father’s new dog. She’s over a year now, but in the picture she’s still a puppy. The color scheme of the page came from her coloring – she has black, white and beautiful brown color. So I used the same palette in my page as the topic of it has!

I started the page with some watercolors and then added some stenciling and stamping there as well. I mixed items from the new collection to the existing ones – like using the paw stamp but also the seaweed stencil. On top I then layered some patterned papers and the photo and then used different chipboards to decorate the page. As they fit the color scheme as they were, I left them untreated.

This time I recorded a video to show you my process on the page. Hope you like it!

2015248 Simply Adorable

My other project is a set of cards. When I was looking at the silhouettes from the new collection, I could imagine them just like this – on a card with a monoprinted background. I made four cards using the silhouettes and making each one in a different color. There’s the primaries and then green.

scrapfcjuly3a

For these two Nordic animals I used also script element on the background. The wolf also had a few pieces of white paper underneath the eyes and the nose so that the striking animal would be more visible. Otherwise the cards are all made up similarly – first making a monoprint piece of paper using Gelliplate and a number of different Scrap FX stencils and stamps and then layering the silhouette on top. Each of the cards also have a chipboard shape or two to finish the look.

scrapfcjuly3b

Where as the Nordic animals were cold colors, these African ones are warm and vibrant. The giraffes got a red or orange background and the butterfly is mounted on yellow one. To keep the colors singing from the background I colored the chipboard shapes I used to decorate the cards black.

This is how I started, it was the basic idea for the LO.

Some torn pieces of old textured wallpaper, glued with Decoupage glue as a basis for some structure.

Then supplemented with the stencil and white gesso.

I used the negative of the coral stencil as a mask for background design.

Some details:

Pets on Parade by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | 1 Comment

I´m here today to share my two late July projects. They are totally different – one is a layout and the other a Art Journal page. I have been working with the Wolf & Tiger Silhouettes, the Zoo Theme Pack & the Pets on parade wordlet.

First the layout, that is based on a 12×12 patterned paper from 7 Dots Studio. I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, stamping and layers of decorations to add dimension.

IMG_1273

The Elephant text from the Zoo Theme Pack works really well with the picture my partner took a couple of years ago when two Elephants ran away from the circus and found their way into the main road trough our village. I highlighted both the Elephant text and the Pets on parade wordlet with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze.

Some details:

IMG_1274

IMG_1277

Now to my second project. This is totally different. I made a arty Art Journal page with a lot of texture using the two new animal silhouettes. By applying texture paste trough the silhouettes I created “pictures” with dept.

IMG_1279

Some details:

IMG_1280

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • Pets on Parade – 201622
  • Zoo Theme Pack – 2016201
  • Tiger Silhouette – 2016229
  • Wolf Silhouette – 2016199

A bunch of notebooks with Scrap FX

by Riikka Kovasin | 1 Comment

scrapfxaug1

Hello there! It’s Riikka here sharing a couple of notebooks I did using ScrapFX supplies. All of the notebooks have similar layers and techniques, but the chippies and embellishments are different.

scrapfxaug1b

I used similar colors in each one as they are gifts to be given on the same occasion. There’s a bunch of people traveling to see our favorite band in August and these notebooks are for that company. Each one of them has a back background, painted with black gesso and then mist, paint and PanPastels on top in pinks, blacks and reds.

Each of the books have a dimensional stenciled background to create texture. I used Modeling Paste to create the texture. What the books have in common still, is the use of the year chippies – 2016. The other chipboards and embellishments vary, but I used the year in each one.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you with these notebook covers!

We are Family

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 2 Comments

Hello everyone.

Thank you for visiting us today.

It’s Anguree on the blog and today I have two layouts to share with you. This month it’s all about animals whether it be your furry friends or animals in the wild. However, if you don’t have any animal pictures to scrap or don’t really feel like scrapping animals……don’t stop reading now.  I’m going to show you how to use some of our new stencils, to create backgrounds to suit any theme you may have in mind.

We are Family

First up, is this layout  of our beloved Chocolate Labrador. I’m sure you would agree that our pets, are really so much more than animals. They are family and my dear Charlie, knows it or rather insists on it. His favourite thing is to jump up on the bed every evening and to place himself, not on the end of the bed, but between me and my husband. Then he uses his paw to get our attention. If we pretend not to notice him or  simply try to have some quite time he will try to climb up onto us or grunt or sigh to show his displeasure (lol)… Believe me, he is quite persistent and there’s no way out for us without giving him a scratch or cuddle. Oh and no he does not get to sleep on the bed, I still have some rules…

Before I get  right into it, I would like to thank the super talented Louise Nelson for her inspiration for this layout. I’ve recently had the privilege to attend two of her classes at the Escape to Create retreat  and wow, I am in awe.

We Are Family

Scrap FX product used:
#pets
Elephant Family
Love Paw & Heart
Playful Dogs stencil
Big Cats stencil

 Step 1

Use Marble spray paint  to create a background.

Step 2b

Step2

Stencil the Playful Dogs image to the left and the Big Cats stencil to the right. You will note I stencilled both images on the Big Cat stencil, yet not much of it shows when the layout is complete.

Step 3

Add some white paint swirls and let it dry.

Step 5

Matt your photo onto black card stock and position it onto your layout.

20160710_151621

Bend a piece of wire into loops and staple to your layout. Start adding embellishments and medical gauze to visualise the final layout. Arrange the  preferred chipboard pieces so you will know which colour to make them. (You will notice that I picked and coloured my title prior to adding more chipboard.)

Step 4

 

20160710_152548

Colour your Chipboard using silver alcohol ink or paint and black Archival Ink.

Adhere the chipboard pieces to your layout and add a couple of enamel dots  to draw attention to the  photo and chipboard words. Last but not least add some micro beads to finish it off .

Voila you are done. [Insert smiley face]

Life A Life Inspired

Scrap FX Products used:
Big Cats stencil
Crocs stencil
Live a Life Inspired

 This layout is an example of how to use your stencils in a little different way that you may have thought off before. When we get stencils of specific objects/ elements/animals, it is easy to assume that it will not work because you don’t have a photo to match the theme. However if you look at it a bit differently you will see the lines of our newly released stencils, lean themselves towards a variety of options for texture and colour onto your background.

20160710_165544

Stencil the big cat image to the top left of your page and lift up very carefully. TIP: It’s a good idea to secure the stencil with washi tape, so it does not move while you apply the Colour Blast paste. Clean your stencil and let this image dry properly. You can use a heat gun, but letting it dry naturally is better in this case as your paper will be less likely to wrap.

20160713_213648

Repeat step 1 and stencil the same image to the left bottom of the page. Note that the stencil has now been flipped over so the cat’s head is on the left side. Let it dry and clean your stencil.

Use the crocodile stencil and only stencil half of the image in the middle where the other two images meet. Let it dry and clean the stencil.

20160713_215523 (1)

Matt your photo onto a piece of black card stock, raising the image by using a piece of chipboard in between. Position the photo and chipboard title  on the layout.

20160713_220348

Add a leftover piece of bling flourish close to where the photo will be placed.

20160713_221228

20160713_222034

Gesso your chipboard title and let it dry. Add colour and texture to the title by adding liquid Pearls and let it dry.

Adhere the title to the layout and finish it off by adding a couple of bling dots.

Voila you are done.

I really hope you enjoyed your time with me and hope to see you visiting again real soon. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Till next time, have fun.
