Hi, I’m Gina Rodgers from Tasmania, Australia, and I’m excited to be sharing my projects using ScrapFX chipboard with you.. I’ve been scrapping for 6 years now and love using lots of texture and arty elements on my pages.
I’m currently on design teams for the Australian challenge blog Kraft it Up, a US kit club Citrus Twist and PaperHaus magazine and I’m also an Ambassador for Jenni Bowlin Studio.
POINT AND SHOOT
For the retro flowers I’ve dabbed then with a small white ink pad. The ampersand was coated with white gesso, then once dry, dabbed with a white and turquoise ink pad.I’ve also added a few drops of gold mist and a couple of tiny attacher fasteners.
The background was created using a ‘chevron’ stencil . Firstly I sprayed through the stencil with a few different mists onto a separate piece of cardstock (to use another time), then with the mist left on the top of the stencil I turned in upside down onto a sheet of white cardstock and pressed it down. You can either press the whole thing down or just sections for a messier look. I also shook the stencil a let a few drops of ink fall randomly.
The ‘mini leaf buttons’ were coated with gesso then coloured with a combination of inks and mists. Once dried I added some thread and mounted onto the page with glue dots so that they sat up slightly on the page
The ‘scribble rectangle’ and ‘moments’ word were coloured using with a brown mist and I’ve stitched the title to add a little texture.
I’ve used the small ‘arrows’ stencil on the background and sprayed through with one colour in each circle then reverse printed over the top with another colour. Once dry I traced inside the stencil with a black fine liner and ‘softened’ this outline with a little water on a paint brush. I’ve also scraped a bit of white gesso between the circles and added some script with a white gel pen.
The ‘sakura’ flowers and ‘ampersand’ have been coloured with brown mist and the flowers have some orange ink highlights in the centre.
I’ve had so much fun playing with ScrapFX products,
thanks a bunch to Michelle and Jill for inviting me to be Guest Designer!
