The Fun Starts Here

I have again twisted the steam punk and used a more vibrant colour scheme of yellow..inspiration  drawn from my sons exciting and somewhat daunting yellow L plates! I am not ready to teach him how to drive!!!

To grunge up my chippy  I first coated them in black then with my finger dabbed Yellow and Grey blotches randomly and then dried it completely

.

The main products I have used are

  • Fractured Time
  • Illuminated Time
  • The fun starts here
  • Intersection Stencil

Some close ups….

 

Thanks for stopping By!

Steampunk Muse Doll – By Niamh

by Niamh Baly | 0 comments

Hi All,

I have been so excited to share this project with you all, mainly because I am obsessed with making these dolls for all occasions!!! So without further hesitation – meet Stella, my Scrap FX Steampunk Muse (the full video of making Stella is linked below – check it out).

Stella came about after seeing the beautiful Decorative antlers and Steampunk Fairy Queen chipboards, and knowing how amazing they would look on one of my dolls. The doll body starts off as a simple arch shape cut out of a sheet of chipboard, covered in collage papers, washiest, paint markers and found ephemera (zips, lace etc). I have also used the Scrap FX mark making mini stamp, which was the perfect size.

The head and legs were a printable from Little Raven Ink, printed out onto sticker paper, then adhered to chipboard and fussy cut. I coloured in the collar and created a foiled crown for her head. The head was stuck onto the body using double sided foam tape. I painted the Decorative antlers using paint markers, which allowed greater control of here the paint was applied, then added a coat of Nuvo glitter gloss to make it sparkly. I also added the #ownyourtalent chipboard from the #achieve set, as this is a doll to inspire my creativity – and to believe in myself.

I felt bad making the wings, as it meant I had to cut through the Steam punk fairy queen just for her wings – but in the end it was very worth it! I painted the piece black, then applied ink gold wax to give a metallic effect. I also glued watch pieces and found metal latches to the wings to give it more interest and depth.

 

Finally I filled a small box with magic foam (florist foam would do the same) so that the skewers would be more stable, then collaged the entire box with painted papers and washi. I stencilled the Scrap FX art phase onto tissue paper, then pasted that onto the box as well.

My top tip for this project is to remember to paint both sides of the chipboard – as it will be visible from both sides. This is an object people pick up to have a closer look at – so make it look pretty from all angles!

 

The full process video of creating this steampunk art muse is available here on the Scrap FX YouTube Channel. Make sure you subscribe to the channel and click the notification button so that you are notified as soon as one of the new projects goes live.

KEEPSAKES FOR OUR MEMORIES by Deborah

by Deb Adams | 0 comments

The two projects I have created for this post are designed for Memory Keeping.

Old photos & school paraphernalia in one & autographs & written messages in the other.

Both projects use recycled  items.

This Album above features a weathered painted board effect made using acrylic paints & my gel press plate.

The chipboard wordlet is embellished with crackle paint & embossing powders.

The recycled elements are the little girl images.

This oversized card was made from recycled packaging.

It features a two layer embossed texture effect & metallic finishes.

Love to make keepsakes to cherish out of items that would otherwise be thrown away.

More information about the creative processes used are available on my blog

Dream Machine & Dragon Journal….. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on Dream Machine & Dragon Journal….. by Cindy Porter

Hi Scrap FX fans, Cindy here with you today to share a couple of recent projects… first up I have a scrapbook layout I titled “Dream Machine

This is a pic of my favourite bike (yes I do have more than one bike, hence the favourite)… I love the pic showing off all the gorgeous lines and character of my bike… it really is my Dream Machine…. I had wanted this style of bike from the day I started riding, but this model was very rarely available in Australia… So when hubby discovered that there was one bike of this model in our local Harley store, the only one that had been available in years we just had to get it…. I fell in love the minute I rode it… it really is my Dream Machine

This new title says it all…. I couldn’t have had a better title if I had designed it myself…. love it!!  perfect for a layout of my fav bike, my Dream Machine

This awesome Steampunk Motorbike is the perfect embellishment for my layout…  Isn’t it totally fabulous… I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it…

To add to my photo cluster I cut pieces of the BBQ Mesh, love using it as a page filler….

I used the smaller piece from the  Chain & Clip pack (there are two in the pack) to embellish my photo… it is just like the chain that is on my biker wallet….
Have I mentioned how much I loved these new Scrap FX designs…lol..

A final look at the whole layout…

Scrap FX products used:

Chain & Clip

BBQ Mesh

Steampunk Motorbike

Dream Machine

My next piece is an Art Journal cover which I have nicknamed “Dragon Journal”.

this one was lots of fun to create… and will get plenty of use…

I began with the Intersections Stencil and applied modelling paste through the stencil to the entire front and back covers…

Some close ups of the stencilled covers…

I added the amazing Steampunk Dragon to the cover…. isn’t it a fabulous piece… I love how the body cogs piece is separate from the Dragon and as such allows for easy painting and colouring of both the dragon and his cogs cover, not to mention the sensational 3D this gives the piece…


to finish off the cover I added some pieces of Chicken Wire, some cotton, gauze and a few art stones…

One final look at the whole cover…

I hope you found some inspiration here today,

till next time,

All Geared Up a layout by Renee Aslette

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on All Geared Up a layout by Renee Aslette

Hello Scrap FX Friends,

Today is my last post on the Scrap FX Blog.

I am off to study, but I have loved every minute of my time on this team.

So I am sharing two projects.  My first is a layout of the inside of my hubbies Speedway Car.

Anyone who know me, knows I love cogs and funky mens pages.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the Metal & Pipe Panel.  I painted it blue and black.  You can also see the Industrial machines transparency on the top left and bottom right of the layout.

All Geared Up was the perfect title for the layout.  I painted it the same colours.

I also stamped the background using the Chicken Wire Stamp.

Here are the products I used:

My second share is a card I made using the new Steampunk Releases.

I wanted to show you that the products can also be feminine.

I began by stencilling the white background with a Tim Holtz Ink Pad.  I kept the Instersections Stencil in place with Washi Tape.  Then I used a sponge to add the colour.

I cut out the side strip from the Antiquities Transparency.

Then I inked the Steampunk Assemblage chipboard piece as well as one of the two Chain & Clip chipboard pieces.

I finished off with a Happy Birthday strip.

Here are the pieces I used:

Once again, thank you for stopping by.

I have loved seeing your comments and I hope you were inspired.

An art journal page and two Travellers Notebook pages by Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | Comments Off on An art journal page and two Travellers Notebook pages by Lynn Good

Hi everyone, Lynn here and today I would like to share with you an art journal page and two pages from my Travellers Notebook.

First is my art journal page:

I have created this is my Dylusions Diary.  I began my painting the page with distress oxides and then using the Intersections Stencil and a darker distress oxide I created the patterns on the background.

I have painted the Steampunk Motorbike in copper/bronze paint and added some tranparencies.

Here are some close ups:

For my second project for this post I have made not one but two entries into my Travellers Notebook style journal – it is actually one of Dyan Revealeys Dyalog journals.

I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these – making pages from photos that are quirky moments or not quite focused or what I would use for a scrapbooking page.  I think it is a fantastic way to make memories what what I did – not on a daily basis but when we do something worthy of noting and that would be interesting to look back on!

I have used the Time Transparency as well as the numbers chipboard that I created into a stamping block – more information is on this blog post: Making Stamps

and for my second page (using the same background technique as the art journal page) :
