Hello, it’s Amy here today, to share a few projects that helped to stretch my wings a little, and step out of my box!
First up, is the first canvas I’ve ever made with out a photo on it! My family was kind of flabbergasted, in fact they kept asking if there was room for a photo somewhere.
I got the idea for this canvas while sitting in the choir loft at my church.I was sort of daydreaming, and then this idea of a tree growing from a healthy, bright red and swooping heart came to mind. I immediately got home and got to work! The base is just vintage book papers torn into pieces, and decoupaged onto the canvas. I then used the ScrapFX stencil, and created that lovely swirling background with different inks and embossing powder.
I painted the tree and leaves with different natural colors, and tried to make it look as blended into the heart as much as possible. The heart was hand drawn, and then filled in with Art Anthology paint in a firey, sparkling red. I then outline it all with a fineliner.
Finally, I painted the lovely butterfly flourish, and connected it to the heart, to create a flowing movement across the project. I was really pleased with how it came out, especially for a first try!
This ScrapFX project used the following products:
Round Tree, Large 2012016
Butterfly Flourish 2013022
Scribble Heart 2013046
Garden In Paradise Stencil 2013028
My Next project is a BIG new favorite of mine. I created a mini album, that hangs from a vintage embroidery hoop, and is backed with upcycled denim.
The wrought iron corners and circle, as well as the ruffled wing, were fun to use for the cover, which was made of corrugated cardboard.
I could seriously use these gorgeous flutterbys over and over……….they’re so elegant and dainty.
I think this little mini album features these photos of my daughter in a perfect vintage, grungy way, and will be fun to have hanging up during her 8th grade promotion ceremony!
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you were inspired to go get grungy with your gorgeous ScrapFX chipboard! For more close ups, and a look at the inside of this mini, visit my blog at www.sparklinggnome.com

Finally it’s my turn to be sharing with you again. This time I’ve cooked up something bright, vibrant and messy for you.
No romantic touches this time;) I love yellow..can’t get enough of it, and the whole world falls in to place when I use it on my work.
You can match it with ANY color, honestly!
Here is my layout:
The background is made with gesso on top of magic mesh, and the yellow is various paint, mist and chalk.
I like to use circles on my layout, and the chipboard piece I’ve used here was the perfect circle:
I treated the chipboard with both gesso and pan pastel..so lovely!
My second layout is made with my second favoritecolor: turquoise!
I even threw in a gold doilie for you, to get it nice and shiny;)
I’ve treated the background again with gesso, magic mesh, paint and mists.
The title says: “Birthday Boy.”
Again I’ve added circular elements: the doilie, the big flower and this chipboard:
Sometimes you look for the extra-extra to put on your page, and I found me this one:
I hope you feel inspired, the way I am, working with these layouts and the chipboards from ScrapFX inspires me over and over again!
Thank you so much for stopping by<3

Hi all, it´s Maria again. Today I want to share a special Mixed Media Layout and a simple card with you, using our new products from Scrap FX!
First a very simple card for Mothers Day, (for my mother in law).
I used white cardstock and some lace to start with as a background. I then painted the Scribble Heart in turquoise and put a splash of bronze on it. The Love wordlets I painted in white and crackled it with Crackle accents. I sewed all the elements on the card and it was ready to go.
Products I used:
Scribble Heart, small (2013043)
Words of love (2013050)
This Layout was inspired by my wonderful hubby Sascha! He’s a great artist and I love the inspiration we share!
It’s my first Layout without a photo! And I love it! I amm really bad at drawing! Here I have given my best.
The background is made with Tissue paper from Tim Holtz ( I LOVE it , Gesso, some stamps, black, gold and bronze ink – and of course – stencils. After I drew the face, I altered my chipboards. I put on all chipboards ( Graphic Circles, Graphic Corner, Roman Numerals) a copper priming. Some I have brushed with patina, with shimmering watercolors H2O´s in turquoise and brown. After drying I glued all the pieces on my page.
Products I used:
Graphic Circles (2013076)
Graphic Corner (2013078)
Roman Numerals (2013087)
Thank you for looking and wish you tons of inspiration!
Hi All! It’s my turn to share with you some beautiful products by the Scrap FX! Here we go, let’s get right to it!
This month’s chippies were beautifully done! I always find masculine/boyish scrapbook elements hard to come by at times, and this release fulfilled my every need
I pulled this paper and thought it’s dramatic pattern would play well with the chipboard pieces. I needed to make a BOLD statement and I found an equally dramatic photo to match my paper and chippy treatment. I took several of the releases and treated them with several different mediums, each building up to the next. I have used a Gesso primer, topped it off with a coat of chalk ink here and there, a coat of misting, and then finally one more layer of Mixed Media Inks. I finished them off with a quick swipe of some black Gesso. I got a really grungy look with the combination of colors- browns, patina, and yellow. Loving the results of the chippy treatment!
Also one of my favorite things to do with the chippies are to adapt them to make them work for me. I have broken most of my chippies into pieces, and placed them in different spots in the composition. Don’t be afraid to cut them into pieces, tear off an end, split it in half or in fourths…. the possibilities are truly endless. The more you think outside the box the more fun you can have with them!
Chippies featured on this LO:
For my next piece, I wanted to have a bit of fun with this awesome butterfly! I decided to play with glitter on this treatment. It turned out quite girly. I played around with it for a bit, deciding what to do with it, until I came up with the idea of adding it to my daughters back, once her silhouette was cut out of a photo. From there I created a fun color palette for the background. A few splashes of some blue art medium and a spool of blue thread did the trick!
I did not want to go too overboard with my color splashes (learning when to say when
) so I simply inked my Wordlet with brown ink pad.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in!
Until next time,
Hello, I am here to share a couple LO’s I did using this months new releases.

- Here is a closer look:
I used walnut stain on the chicken wire.
I cut “Moment in” from the “time” part of the wordlet.
I used walnut stain & rock candy crackle on “Moment” & when that dried I rubbed in Viva Inka Gold Metallic Rub (Old Silver) & (Copper).
On the wings, clock & compass I first applied Perfect Pearls Mists (biscotti) then inked the edges with brown. I also rubbed in some Viva onto the Wings. I glued the clock on to a piece of paper I was working with,then used rock candy crackle in the word in…..

On the Time part of the wordlet I used walnut stain,then rock candy crackle & when that dried I rubbed in some Viva….
“No Hard Work”

Here are some close ups …..
I first applied walnut stain on all the chipboard.
On the compass & alpha I then applied rock candy crackle. While the crackle was still wet on the alpha I placed numbers & jump rings, then when that dried I applied another coat of rock candy. Once that all dried I rubbed in Old Silver & Copper Viva Inka Gold rub with my finger………..
