Scrapbook pages by Heike

by Heike Bruhn

Hello together,
 nice that you’re over today for my second blog post for the company ScrapFx Australia.
 For my second blog post I challenged myself.
 I have used a photo of my children three times. Once on a scrapbook page of the down under paper collection of 13arts and twice on white background paper DIN4, with an abstract design.
 The new collage papers from ScrapFx are excellent for this style.
It is always surprising what an effect a photo can have on the background. Although the photo is the same I have the feeling that it comes across differently on the three projects.
My first project is a scrapbook page in mixed media style. For this I used the sweet Australian animal chipboards from ScrapFX. Many craft people around the world saw the Q and A from Tim Holtz.
 I have also seen them and the embossing powder/ crayon technique speaks to me!!. I knew immediately, this technique I want to apply for the chipboards from ScrapFx. The only thing what I changed was the color under the glaze. I uesd watercolor.
Travel views…
