I added a small Scribble Circle over the first photo that I had again coated with white embossing powder… I then cut down the mini title Let the Good Times Roll and again coated it with white embossing powder…. and finally I mounted it over the scribble circle…

Live Gentle Upon this Earth by Anguree

Hello everyone,

I’m back sharing a mug I’ve created using some fabulous Scrap FX chipboard. I’d  not exactly recommend you drink out of it after it’s done, but I think it would be great to use as a holder for your paint brushes or pens.

I started with a plain old enamel mug, we used to use for camping and started to play around with the chipboard to get an idea for the finished project. I just used blue tack to temporarily attach the chipboard to visualise my idea.

1-20160424_115319

I then covered it in tissue paper using soft matt medium. You could use any tissue paper, but this is just what I had at hand.

1-20160424_160204 (1)

Next I added some lace to add more texture followed by a couple of layers of thick white gesso. (As you will realise through my process, this is not a project you finish in a evening or even a morning, as you do need to let it dry throughout the process. So my best advice would be to do work on other projects while you wait for the mug to dry.)

1-20160502_102209

Now we get to the fun part, I started off by painting it with a combination of Prima bloom Spray, Silk Paints and Finnabair Opal Magic acrylics and Primary Elements mixed with soft gel.

Next I added some stamping using Archival Ink and a 7 Dots and Finnabair acrylic stamps. The beauty of acrylic stamps are that they can easily fold around objects.

Finally I could start to assemble my little angel, inspired by the fabulous Fiona Paltridge. I painted each piece of chipboard individually using Silks and Finnabair Acrylic Paints prior to attaching it on the mug. In the photos above you can see how I slowly started to build dimension, adding every piece with 3D gel. Again the mug needed to dry for a couple of hours before anything else could be added.

I then added some glass beads, glass glitter, sequins and micro beads with more soft gel.

20160503_085508

Lastly I added some journalling stickers and covered them in soft gel to seal the surface.

I really hope you enjoyed your time with me today and want to thank you for stopping by.

Till next time, have fun crafting.

From Boyish to Girlish – Scrap FX has it all

by Jasmine Shea | 1 Comment

Good morning,

I love that Scrap FX products are so versatile and can be used for so many different creations.

In this post I have created a “boyish” themed page and then onto a very “feminine” themed page.

Remember this Moment

Remember this Moment” was a perfect title for my page about my son who taught himself to solve the Rubik’s cube. It amazes me what is at their disposal these days with You Tube.  No wonder we couldn’t solve it as kids, we didn’t have anyone on a video to teach us the algorithms.

Remember this Moment banner

I have also used the Squared Stamp in my background which I thought was perfect for the cube shape of the Rubik’s Cube and it’s many pieces.

IMG_1932

I also couldn’t help myself but to use the Art Deco Plaque which reminded me of a little person and a bit intricate like my son and the Rubik’s cube.

IMG_1933

Forever in My Heart

My next page is about my Mum and I and celebrating her 65th Birthday.  I wanted the page to have a very soft, feminine and heartfelt feel.

Forever in my Heart banner

I added a lot of texture to my background and then using the Art Deco Stencil I used a fine spray of mist as a layer to the background also.

I have a bit of a habit of altering my chipboard pieces but I love that you can do this to suit your page.  For example, I used the “Forever in My Heart” title but I felt the “Heart” word was a little too big for the space I had so I cut this piece off (and I can use this at a later stage on another page of course) and I used a heart from the Heartscrawl (again by cutting it off) to the right of my page, therefore taking your eyes across the page also.

FIMH2 FIMH 3

And lastly I added one of the Cocktail Glasses on my page to highlight our cocktail glasses in the photo.

FIMH 1

So I hope that provides you with a little insight into using or even altering the fabulous Scrap FX pieces on your pages.

Wanderlust Book and Old Vintage Cards by Marie

by Marie Johansson | 2 Comments

I´m here today to share by late month projects for April – a book cover using the small Sea Scene Corner, the #travel words & two cards using the Girl & Boy Tokens. Let´s start with the book.

IMG_0821

This book cover was really fast and easy to make. A perfect project when you need something to take with you to a dinner party and you have forgot to buy a gift.

I simply cut a piece of paper to fit the front of my journal (I used a piece from 7dots Studios new Fortune-teller collection), then used plain school glue to add it to the cover. To spruce up the Sea Scene corner and #words I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (“Verdigris”). I simply sprayed the mist over the pieces and dried it with my heat gun. Two die cut banners complimentary in style and I splatted more Glimmer Mist (“Blue Bubbles”) to give some extra highlights to the project.

IMG_0822

IMG_0823

Now to my second project. Or second and third considering it is a set of two cards. These cards where simply made by using scraps of paper. The tokens give the cards the real wow factor I think. First a girly card using the Girl Tokens.

IMG_0819

Both cards where made the same way – by layering patterned papers & die cuts (from 7dots Studio) and simply embellish with flowers, metal, trinkets and spatters of Glimmer Mist.

IMG_0820

To make the token really pop I painted it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (“Marmalade”). I used the same color together with a pink (“Party Pink”) to splatter over the card. A project from me without paint splatter does not exist..

IMG_0816

The other card was made with the same techniques, but this time I chose a male look (feeling very gender specific and unmodern here…).

IMG_0817

As you can see I have painted the token on this card as well – this time with the color “Jack Frost”. Again I have highlighted the card with splatters of mist (“Jack Frost” & “Blue Bubbles”).

I think the tokens look perfect on these cards. They make a cool focal point when painted and really give the cards that extra wow factor.

This what I used Scrap FX

  • Girl Tokens (2016081)
  • Boy Tokens (2016080)
  • Sea Scene Small (2016068S)
  • #Travel (2016079)

Thank you for your visit today!

I hope I could inspire you to make some fast and easy projects using Scrap FX goodies.

I like to take pictures, cycling, fitness, cooking and baking, and can’t imagine my life without travelling. In scrapbooking I like freestyle, adore mixed media, sometimes get in the mood for creating something vintage or shabby.))

The chippies painted acrylic VibrantTurquoise paint and sprinkled white pigment and drops in a few places. It looks like sea foam sprays,,,

The chipboard painted black acrylic paint.

It perfectly shows the meaning of surfing and travelling…

It’s so very easy to create with ScrapFX products.

I had no need to wait for inspiration to hit… ideas were born at once.

Excellent quality and interesting designs!

Great!

Hello friends!

This is my first post for ScrapFX and I’m really excited! All the products are amazing and very inspiring, so working with them is a pure pleasure.

I made two layouts, this is a form that I like the most. In this one I used adorable photo of siblings, so I couldn’t add any other wordlet than this.

I painted the heart chipboards with watercolors, they take all the colors and the media, don’t lose their shape, despite the large amount of paint and water.

I covered the wordlet with white embossing powder. Thanks to this inscription is clear and doesn’t blend with the background.

Products used:

The second project is with sea-themed products. I love everything related to this topic.

This seahorse stamp is just amazing! So big and so clear, I just adore it.

The sea corner I also painted with watercolours, and added some Art Stones and gesso. I wanted to get the effect, as if it was caught from the sea.

Raw chipboards VS Transformed chipboards!

by Kareen Brochu-Harvey | 2 Comments

Hi creative people!

Recently I have played a lot with chipboards by altering them with all kind of things: paint, ink, embossing powder… And, because of that, I want today to show you two layouts. One with natural chipboards and one with transformed/altered chipboards. Both are fabulous and easy to work with!

The first one is « raw chipboard »

Capture d’écran 2016-04-25 à 11.30.47

For this layout, I have used the chipboards as they come.

For my second layout, I have altered all my chipboards.

Capture d’écran 2016-04-25 à 11.47.20

Do you want to know what I have put on them?

The first thing that I have used on them to give a nice deep blue color is the spray Irresistible:

Capture d’écran 2016-04-25 à 11.53.55

To apply this product on the chipboards, I have used the tube in it:

13092196_10153442087452601_1042855583757952254_n

After that, I have put a lot of things like spray, powder, ink… to make them more « mixed media », more busy!

Have you seen those little jigsaw pieces? I am so in love with them!

They complete marvellously my magical/dreamy theme.

Café Society and another Roadbook

by Claire Barrin | 1 Comment

Good morning dear Scrap FX readers,

Claire writing to share some more designs.

This post is kind of a sequel from my last one. As you may have noticed, I’m a real travel bug, and that fits perfectly with this month thematics.

So, let’s go!

*****

The first design is a quite simpe layout.

I only drew the brand logo with watercolours on the background and added some plain chipboards. I really love them that way.

luckie-coffesociety-scrapfx

The Cafe Society is the perfect title for this picture, as I drank many of them in Buenos Aires.

The second design is a soon-to-be-completed road book for my next trip in Mayotte (a French island near Madagascar).

I’m traveling with a friend of mine and I decided to make the same road books for both of us.

Here are the covers, made in watercolours.
