Authenticity

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on Authenticity

 

Hi There Scrap FX Friends,

It’s Renee Aslette here, Happy New Year to all!!

I am super excited about the release this month.  I had so much trouble choosing what to play with because everything was awesome.

But I narrowed it down, and created this layout.

This is a layout of my youngest, Lucas.  I used loads of Scrap FX products on this page.

I started with the Geometry Stencil on this 7 Dots Studio – Paint Chip Collection background.

I used it to stencil using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide – Black Soot.

I then turned the stencil over and used it directly beside this image as a stamp, behind the photo.

I then used the Honeycomb Stamp to give the background some ink.  This stamp will be a favourite of mine for sure.  It’s so versatile.

I then mixed some Tim Holtz – Distress Oxide – Twisted Citron and Whipped Sparkle to use with the Crosswords stencil to bring out some of the color in the background.

You can also see the Fractured Time Chipboard which was painted with White Gesso.

To finish the layout off, I added the title “Authenticity” and some of the BBQ Mesh Chipboard, which is also featured behind the photo matting as well.

Oh, and I cannot forget the Light Bulb Transparency.  You get 9 of these in a sheet and they have different designs within each light bulb.  How cool is that!!

Here are the products used so you can head back to the Scrap FX shop and grab some too!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are inspired.

Happy New Year

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on Happy New Year

Hello dearest friends.

I hope you all had a good festive season and would like to wish you all the best for 2018.  I  am back today sharing a couple ATC’s I created  reflecting my thoughts for 2018. At the start of a new year it’s good to stop, reflect and again reset our course.

To do this I used a selection of our brand new products. This month our theme is Steampunk, a personal all time favourite.

Scrap FX Products used

Steampunk Key Corner

Fractured Time

Tangled gears Stamp

I used Distress Ink, Chipped Saffire, to stamp a background.

Next I  sponged all my pieces with white acrylic paint. As you will note I cut the bigger chipboard piece in different sections to fit 2 of my cards.

Last but not least I added a couple of 49AndMarket Flowers and a bit of glitter as embellishments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your time here. Till next time have fun and enjoy your craft.

New Year, new products to share…….

by admin | Comments Off on New Year, new products to share…….

Hello and Happy New Year to you!!

It’s time to showcase new products from our last release, and it’s STEAMPUNK time!!  Yay!!  So let’s get on with it…….

First up we have some awesome two piece shapes:

Steampunk Wall Clock LARGE    Steampunk Heart Pendant SMALL     Steampunk Key Corner

Steampunk Padlock LARGE   Steampunk Contraption

I couldn’t wait to use these and my first project was the Steampunk Wall Clock, combined with lots of cogs from micro, mini and standard sets, as well as accessory cogs.

And the large Steampunk Padlock looks awesome with a rusty patina on this art journal page.  The background was made using the new Tangled Gears foam stamp, and the original Cog stamp pressed into texture paste (washed immediately).

Then we have more chipboard shapes

Suspended Time  Spiky Flourish Steampunk Charm Bracelet  Wire and Chain Frame

and some mini bits and mini words:

Fractured Time      #surreal  Moment in Time MINI

In this layout I have used the Spiky Flourish,  Fractured Time bits, Tangled Gears stamp (LOVE this!) and new wordlet title:  Give Your Dreams Wings:

Also on this layout is the new chipboard BBQ Mesh, also available in white and black card.

Three new foam stamps:

The honeycomb stamp is so easy to use, you can’t go wrong with it, just keep stamping from the one inking:

And there are fabulous silhouettes which match the new Light Bulb Transparency:

This art journal page uses two of the transparency bulbs with the Bright Spark Lady and Suspended Time chipboard piece, Tangled Gears stamp and Geometry stencil:

And we have some HUGE cogs, 7 different designs, all in three different sizes!!  The canvas below uses some of the new cogs and some from the Accessory Cog pack, other cog packs and chickenwire.

  

This closeup shows more detail, and the effects of the Verday two pack patina paint.  The Scrap FX stencil used on this canvas is the Imagine Phrase, perfect for this mammoth canvas!

Joy – A Christmas LO

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on Joy – A Christmas LO

Hey There ScrapFX Peeps! Today I have a Christmas LO to share with y’all. I will say I don’t care for themed scrapping very much. I typically have tons of fun creating other projects with themed papers, etc. but when it comes to actual pages – meh. Not sure why I feel this way, but I decided to tackle that challenge and made a Christmas page (kind of ;)).

Some of my favorite Christmas memories since becoming a parent are all the silly moments I have with my kiddos. Snapchat came in to play last year and my girlie and I had a blast. This is one of my favorite shots and it was begging to have those Decorative Antlers added. I’m pretty sure I’ll need more of those at some point!

In the above photo you can see half of the Decorative Antlers set. To alter this piece I used some paint markers and glitter glue.  You can also see one of the Seeing Stars pieces I used to anchor the circle banner.

And the other half along with a good shot of the background. To create the glittery pattern I outlined the Ripples Stencil with a glitter glue pen. This was the first time I had tried this and I really am diggin‘ the effect.

I used the Joy word piece for the Joy Reindeer set to title the page. A little black paint highlighted with white paint marker allows it to stand out as such. I also used the negative piece from the Seeing Stars.

Thanks bunches for stopping by today and checking out my whimsical take on Christmas. I hope you and your have a delightful New Year!

Scarlett xx

Layout Wishes do come True by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | Comments Off on Layout Wishes do come True by Kate

Hi,

are you relaxed after Christmas or you are looking forward to normal days after New year? I love Chrismtas but I also love our calm house without guest. You know. So for today I prepared mixed media layout. There is our sharpei Dobby on photo. I used amazing chipboards – Crescent Frame and Wishes do come True. Chipboards are painted with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists. For background I used Prima Marketing papers and stamps and flowers. It is quite heavy background but sometimes it is great to have dirty hands of nice paints.

 

 

Have a nice day and HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

Authenticity & Limited Edition – By Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Authenticity & Limited Edition – By Amelie

Hello Scrap Fx Fans! Amélie with you today, just before Christmas! I present you my last 2 creations 2017 for Scrap Fx! And they have nothing to do with Christmas !!! Hihihiihi!

My first, Authenticity. I used a lot of black, something that I do very rarely. This creation on a small dark side, but still, my daughter shines with her beautiful smile (she hates to show her teeth in the photos). I applied a layer of clear gesso before applying a layer of black gesso and used a stencil and a stamp Fx Scrap.

 

I used some chipboardss, natural, that I cut into pieces to arrange them on my layout. I also applied black gesso on my cogwheel before adding Metallic Wax from Prima Marketing

Scrap Fx products:

BBQ Mesh

Cog A Medium

Tangled Gears Stamp

Geometry stencil

Authenticity

For my second creation, I went under the winter theme, because here in Quebec, temperatures are around -10 degrees Celsuis in recent days (the weather forecast even -25 this week !!!). No medium on this page, I only used a little embossing powder on some chipboards !!!

Merry Christmas

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on Merry Christmas

Hello dearest friendsI am back here with you this Christmas weekend and would like to use this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful and blessed time with your friends and family.

For this very special occasion I created 2 Christmas inspired projects.  First is the layout that was inspired by the current @13arts Challenge. I just love all the winter inspired cards and layouts this time of year and decided to join in the fun.

Scrap fx products used:

 Joy Reindeer

Holly Spray

Square Words MINI

I started by adding modeling  paste to my 49AndMarket paper using a  @13arts stencil. I embossed the stencilling using Tinby Metalic melts.

I layed out some chipboard and red flowers from 49AndMarket. I then decided to add a couple of white Flowers from my stash to balance the bright colour.

I lightly sponged my chipboard with a white   acrylic paint.

Next I added some embossing fluid and added Tinby Metalic melts.

I adhered clusters of the flowers, berries and tulle and splattered it all with white acrylic paint.  I then added 13arts Glitter Splash ink,  grid and micro sferes.

The challenge was to incorporate lyrics of Christmas Carols and I used the chipboard words to incorporate 2 of the 3 Christmas Carols in this layout .

I added :

Joy to the world

I believe in Christmas

 All I want for Christmas is you.

Merry ATC’s

Christmas Tags B

As you know I love creating ATC cards so at the end of this year I could not resist. I cut all my patterned paper and matted it with chipboard in between the 2 layers.

I lightly sponged my chipboard with a white   acrylic paint. With the chipboard with the engraved words you need to be very light handed or use  a Brilliance White Ink Pad.

Again I added layers of tulle, chipboard  and embellishments.

Last but not least I added splatters with paint and glitter splash ink.

I hope you enjoyed your time here today. Thank you so much for for stopping by and please feel free to leave us any comments.

Till next year enjoy the festive season and stay safe.

Christmas Memories Junk Journal

by admin | Comments Off on Christmas Memories Junk Journal

Hi everyone!

It’s Jill here today to share a little Christmas Junk Journal made during my holidays to share on Christmas day with the family.  These journals are a lot of fun to make and finding the photos brought all the memories of Christmases past, flooding back.

I used an old book cover and decorated it with patterned paper and made signatures from all sorts of papers, and ephemera from my stash, such as postage stamps, lace, ribbon, post cards, mini vellum envelopes and Christmas gift cards.

The cover features the wordlet Christmas Memories……so appropriate!

The inside is chock full of all sorts of goodies……

There are 64 pages, take a closer look at the details of some of the pages:  Stamped white tags from the white Lace Tag Set and a Flourish tag set: Quirky Reindeer and Doodled stars stamps:

  

More white tags, some from the mixed white tag set, and filmstrip transparencies:

   

Lots of little tuck spots for the photos…….

    

More tags using the Christmas Bauble stamp:

  

  

White tags with stamping, using the Christmas Word Tree stamp:

     

In this actual photo the Photo Frame prop was used……this is lots of fun for the whole family to do on Christmas day after a big lunch and opening presents.

  

White lace tags using the Christmas Word tree stamp and Doodled Stars stamp:

  

  

And the inside back cover has a photo of my beautiful little grandsons.  These pages feature a kraft tag from a flourish tag set, and an index card from the Book Accessory pack:

And on this note I wish you all a very happy Christmas and wonderful new year…….see you in 2018!!

Jill.
