Male Destiny Journal Pages

by Deb Adams | 0 comments

Hi All,

Today I am sharing a double page spread in my Art Journal.

To start this spread I used the gorgeous Blue Mandala rice paper, tearing it into large pieces

& applying with gel medium.  Adding random stitching to the page.

I repeated the patterns in the rice paper with stamping.  Softening the effect with water & white gesso.

The ‘John & Harry’ stencil allowed me to apply the male shapes to the uneven surface.

Great how it cuts through his jacket.

The Trees rice paper representing growth & strength in the background.

The Interlock stencil was used to represent a pathway.

The transparencies make great sentiments, applied with matte gel medium.

A top coat of gel medium reduces the shine of the acetate.

Love this ‘Man in Black’ silhouette.

The visual texture was built up by applying lots of layers on these pages.

Two art journal pages by Lisa

by Lisa Rabellino | 0 comments

Hi everyone!

Lisa today and I’d love to share with you my new art journal inspirations playing with Scrap Fx products!

For the background I glued various pieces of Scrap Fx collage papers. So I brushed a coat of clear gesso and I used my favorite watercolors.

I made some stamps with blue archival ink and I cutted an image from Scrap Fx mini Funky Folk collage set and I made splatters with yellow  liquid ink.

For my second page I used others Scrap Fx collage papers and I made a rainbow background with my watercolors.

I used these products from the store:

Hi Guys,

Tanya here,

Today I have a bright mixed media layout for you.

The products used are

Fountain Pen ricepaper

For this layout I ripped some collage paper, added some smears of paint. Then fully dried it.

Once dry I smeared some black paint over the colored parts and then wiped it back through the stencil to build more layers before drying and adding layers to the top.

Thanks For Looking!

Hi Scrap FX Friends,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest Scrap FX project featuring loads of new and classic Scrap FX products.

As a mum of tween and teen boys, I tend to do a lot of grungy boy layouts and I like to mix up the colour schemes to keep them fresh. With this layout I knew I wanted to feature the new triangle silhouettes and mark making products from Scrap FX and they worked so well with the fresh colour scheme and collage paper.

Let’s take a closer look…

Use border stamps, washi tape and long pieces of chipboard to create a border between your two colour schemes.

Use mark making stamps and stencils to add texture and subtle interest in the background.

Scrapbook layout in mixed media style by Heike

by Heike Bruhn | Comments Off on Scrapbook layout in mixed media style by Heike

Hello

and welcome to my second blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia.

I created this time a scrapbook layout in mixed media style with a photo of my daughter Mia years ago.

Therefore I used the beautiful stencil:

Words of Wisdom stencil

One of my favourite stamps:

Squared stamp

Transparency as embellishments:

Circle Patterns transparency

Art Words transparency

and the decorative chipboard:

Circle Hash frame

Here is the link to the store from Scrap Fx: http://www.scrapfx.com.au/store/
Art is anything..
A closer look:

For this page I used the colour combination orange, pink and blue with black and white.

What I love about the transparency from Scrap Fx: they are perfect as embellishments

and finishing touch.

Chipboards are a beautiful way to add 3D effects on the page.

I always paint my chipboard with black gesso first before I add my main colour or

embossing powder. The black paint/ gesso gives more depth and enhances the 3D effect.

For my background paper I used the new paper collection  of 13@rts.

I hope you feel a little bit inspired to create with the beautiful products of Scrap Fx.

Have a beautiful day.

xoxo

Hi everyone,

today I’m sharing an art journal page.

This started with some messy paints and a little gloss spray with the Doily Silhouette which you can see on the far right of the pages.

I have then used the Muslin Silhouette and some white gesso randomly around the pages to mimic some clouds.

For the title, I have used a metallic marker to colour the back of a quote from the Phrases rice paper and adhered this with some matte medium.

Once I stuck down the Sea Bird Frame I gave parts of it a heavy coat with some gold crackle paste.  Platinum crackle paste has been spread also on some parts of the frame and around my pages.  Finishing off with some flicks of gold water colour.

Art is Freedom Concertina Journal

by Deb Adams | Comments Off on Art is Freedom Concertina Journal

Hi Scrap FX readers,

Today I am sharing a folding Journal I created full of bright colours, Arty words & Inspiration.

I started out making a heap of prints using a Gelli plate with Acrylic Paints.

Textures added with stencils & stamps.

I generally kept the colours light as I wanted to apply the Collage Paper images of the sketchy girls faces,

the bold arty sentiments & those eyes!

Love how the torn layers of the Stitched rice papers become semi translucent

over the background.

The Leafy Circle stamp was randomly stamped on each page with Hickory Smoke Distress oxide,

then drawn in sketchy outline with a black posca pen.

Pan Pastels, coloured pencils & posca pens used to blend & then highlight the faces & eyes on each page.

I also coloured around the words to help them blend into the background.

The back cover of the Journal says it all for me…

& I am mesmerised by those beautiful eyes!

Cheers for now,   Deb   oz paper scrap art
