Keep Calm and Be Awesome by Elisa Ablett

by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

My turn up on the Scrap FX Blog today with the first of my projects for the month of April.

I loved the new Scribble Word Stamp and Splodge Rice Paper from this month’s new release and inspiration struck…a grungy boy layout.

I used the Graffiti Grunge paper collection and Embossing Powders from Bee Arty with Colour Blast and I think it worked beautifully with the Scrap FX products.

Let’s take a look at the Scrap FX products used to create the layout:-

and now let’s take a closer look at the finer details!

> I used a small brayer and rolled turquoise paint over the chicken wire chipboard

> I heat embossed the Scribble Arrow Corner Chipboard piece with Dusty Charcoal, Envy and Steel embossing powders from Bee Arty with Colour Blast range. If you emboss with the Dusty Charcoal colour first then with the turquoise ‘Envy’ colour over the top, you get a great distressed look to your chipboard.

> Splatter black ink over your background and brayer turquoise paint to create a grungy look. Then stamp your Scribble Word Stamp and Collage Circle Dot Stamps for a Graffiti look.

> Fussy cut and layer your paper collection’s tag sheet under your photo along with some torn black paper to add to the look!

I also used black modelling paste through the Mark Making stencil.

Here is the Graffiti Grunge paper I used as my background sheet.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, don’t forget to stop into the Scrap FX Facebook group for more inspiration and Scrap FX fun.
