Family moments and Sisters By AnitaB

by admin

We’d like to introduce you to new design team member Anita Bownds……….


My name is Anita Bownds I live in sunny Queensland Australia with my 3 beautiful girls Melissa (16) Kara (11) Eve (8) and an awesome hubby who I love to bits and supports my crazy craft habit..

I enjoy taking black and white photos as I absolutely love the texture.  I started scrapping in 2003 2 years after my second daughter was born, other things I enjoy are Drawing, stamping, card making, scrapbooking, making paper flowers and playing with mists and paint.   My scrapbook style is – Artsy, Shabby Chic with a twist.


Hi,  Anita here sharing my first post for Scrap FX!  I must say I’m super excited and a little nervous too ..  🙂

My first creation is a mini book made from thick cardboard covered with dictionary paper and then gesso over the top and lots of mists


I chose to use these beautiful chippies

Twisted Reeds

Moments Words

Family Words


For my next creation I created a layout of my daughters Kara and Eve

Using these wonderful chippies and a beautiful stencil

Leafy Swirls Stencil

Sisters by nature, Friends by choice

Dandelion, heart

Using the Leafy Swirls Stencil I used a card and smeared gesso

as I wanted to give the leaves a bit of detail I used a scalping paint brush  then sprayed with mist to give the leaves colour

I’ve had so much fun creating with these amazing chippies

I can’t wait to share more with you all ..hugs Anita
