Inspiration, by Chantale

Hi everyone,

Today on the blog, I present to you a art journaling page created with some new items.

I love work this 3 colors together, the mix is always beautiful.

After I finished the background, I glued the rice papers.

I reused the background colors to blend the face, otherwise it would have been too white.

I played with some stamps, I stuck my sentences and small butterflies to make a reminder of white on my creation.

For the finishing touch, I was true to myself and used black paint that I applied with my fingers on the contour.

I like the result, what about you?

If you want to make a similar page, here is what you will need:

   

 

Have a nice day!

Making a new Kraft journal and creating on a tag!

by Claire Stead | 0 comments

I’m excited to be starting another Kraft journal using the Kraft junk journal kit from Scrap FX

Junk Journal Kit KRAFT

I spent a while working out how I wanted to assemble the journal and deciding how to put some of the pages in, in a different way.

First of all I added some White dots and Black dots collage paper and Label phrases collage paper to the journal cover

I used some Amsterdam acrylic paint in the colours Sky blue light, Greyish blue and `ultramarine violet light, I also used Fuchsia and Blackberry – I painted circles of different sizes all over the journal cover

Then I used the text stencil with some Amsterdam acrylic in Prussian blue phthalo to add

 some text onto the cover.

I also used the Number border stencil with some of the Greyish blue paint that was left over.

Using the Dream Big stencil I added some text and marks to the page along with a Corrugated women and co. figure and also some words from The Kraft Journey words set

Onto the next project…

I created a tag using the transparency as a focal point.

First I used some Mineral paint on the tag- the tag did not have any gesso on it at all. I then used some Ancient gloss spray and wiped the spray off – which meant that it resisted where the obit was already on the tag!

Once this was dry, I then used the Round to square stencil with Sand paint (DWM) and also used the Basic masks B with some white paint – trying to keep the colours quite neutral.

Next, I added the transparency onto the tag

Finally I used the Vision stencil with some Umber paint to add some words into the tag

Then, It was finished …. I put it into a pocket I had created in the new journal.

9 Months- Layout- Chrissi M

by Chrissi Mannix | 0 comments

Hello Lovelies,

Today I’m sharing a scrapbook layout I made featuring some of the new star themed goodies.

Using the Starstruck Collage Paper as my starting point, I then applied my paint to add colour. I mounted my photo on cardstock and then a piece of pattern paper that I felt helped soften the background, and bring some colour into my layout. I fish tailed the cardstock so more of that collage paper showed underneath.

I wanted to centre the Star Border Chipboard over my photo, and then use a circle punched piece of cardstock to add a number 9 foam thicker to embellish my layout. I do love the dimension this added to the layout.

I used paint and a Posca paint pen to colour the chipboard border. It matched my layout perfectly.

If you want to see this page come together, head to the Scrap FX YouTube Channel.

Birthday Memories…..By Belinda Lowe

Scrap FX Fans,

Welcome to a new week

My turn on the blog today, and I have a Layout to share with you today. I really dug into the stash for this one, I think sometimes we need to remember that at one stage we did buy that item because we really loved it

I have created this using the following Scrap FX products – Star Border, Insta Frames Transparency, 2022 Year Pack, Circles Galore A by Claire Stead, Random Dots Stencil, Wire Flower Silhouette and the Fern Leaf Stamp

      

Here are some close ups:

I cut the star border into individual stars, coloured with alcohol ink pen and topped with glossy accents. Same goes for the 2022

Here you can see the fern leaf stamp, random dots and the wire flower silhouette. The stamp was just rubbed on with distress oxide and outlined with white pen, the random dots were just raced using the stencil and I trimmed the wire flower into 3 for placement around my image

And finally we have the circles galore once again applied with distress oxide, another star, more dots and the insta frames transparency trimmed to fit the patterned paper

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your new and old Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases.

Happy Scrappy Days!!!

Hi ScrapFX Fans

KarenJ with you today sharing a cover page for one of my art journal/ all about me albums. I have been working on this album for about a year and until now had left the outside cover unadorned. Once I saw the gorgeous Mariposa Girls and Rainbow Butterflies I knew what I wanted to do!

Today I have used the black and white Mariposa girl which is brand new this month from Scrap FX and Designed by Michelle Logan.

I love these designs so much!!

I have also used a Chipboard Art Deco Frame and the super gorgeous Butterfly Rice Paper Papillons Collage. I also did some smooshing with Distress inks, to create a worn old book look.

Hello, I am sharing another journal page.

This one started with a layer of paint and some black stars were added with the Starstruck Stencil.  I’ve then added a little stamping with the  Star Cluster stamp.

I used the Star Frame as a base for my focal point.  This has been placed on top of the Abstract 3 by Niamh Baly and trimmed around the edge.

The lady is from the Silhouette Ladies Stencils and has been traced on to paper that I gel printed and the title is from the Teen Advice Transparency.

Prince Edward Island

by Amy Turner | Comments Off on Prince Edward Island

Hi Everyone!

I have been friends with a group of friends since I was about 6 years old,
we all turn 50 this year so we decided we needed to go on an adventure.
Prince Edward Island it was! We had a great weekend touring around the island
seeing the beautiful scenery and just enjoying being able to hang out together.
We all get busy with life, family etc so it was nice to just have a few days together doing
nothing in particular. lol

Anywho for this project I made a little album of pictures from that trip.

I used these Scrap FX products as well as a few others that are buried in the background papers I used. lol

Basic Masks A

Tangles Squares stamp

Chevron Bits

Grunginess collage

Snapshot frames

I started by covering all the pages with either transparency, collage papers (bought and homemade).
I then added pictures and whatever other bits and bobs of stuff I had kicking around. I went in with gel markers
and added bits of text and highlights around the pictures and then printed out some words to add to a few of
the pages. A few stamps here and there and it was a complete little book. 🙂

 

Until next time! Take care!

 

“Stop dreaming, start doing” by Claire

by Claire Stead | Comments Off on “Stop dreaming, start doing” by Claire

Stop dreaming, start doing- that’s easier said than done sometimes….. especially when it comes to jobs, but when it comes to being arty I don’t have a problem doing!!!

So, here I a with a new project for June for Scrap FX, I am doing a page in my new Kraft junk journal using a new design by Michelle Logan.

I created this spread on a double page and tried really hard to leave some ‘Kraft” space on my page! (like white space but in the Kraft journal!)

I started off by using the Large leaf stamp and created a background on a sheet of printer paper using some Dina Wakley media paint in the colours Magenta, using the gloss spray in the colours Fuchsia and Turquoise

Large Leaf stamp

I printed the stamp not the coloured printer paper using some black acrylic paint using a blending tool to add the colour to the stamp, then I cut out the stamped leaf images.

Once I had done that, I then added some Turquoise and Peacock paint across the middle the page leaving space at the top and bottom corners of the page. I also added some splatters of Fuchsia paint across the page too.

Then I used the Abstract stencil with white paint to add to detail to the background , but used the white paint to add some contrast to the page.

Abstract stencil

I added some white splatters to the page too.

Mariposa Girls by Michelle Logan

Then I cut out the Marisposa girl that I wanted to use and stuck the four stamped leaf images onto the back of the girls t give her some wings.

Stop Dreaming SMALL

Then I added the silhouette ‘Stop dreaming, start doing ‘to the page using some PVA glue and a make up sponge to stick it down. These silhouettes are fragile so its a good way to stick them down!

Then I used the Script stencil and Scribble stamp to add some more elements to the page.

I also added some mark making to the pages using a white posca pen and then called it done!!
