Mixed Media Canvas with Video Tutorial – by Lisa Rabellino

by Lisa Rabellino | Comments Off on Mixed Media Canvas with Video Tutorial – by Lisa Rabellino

Hi everyone!

I’m Lisa and today I show you my first project in this great design team.

I chose to prepare this mixed media canvas, with soft colors like lilac and light blue with a touch of purple and gold!

 

To start first I prepped my canvas with white gesso, then I made some stencil with texture paste colored with purple pigment. I let it dry and made some stamps with archival black ink

 

I brushed my chipboards with white gesso, and colored one of them with spray and pigments colors. The sentiment script I embossed with metallic teal powder and I let it apart. I glued the others chipboards on my canvas with some distressed patterned papers.

Then I mixed the crackle paste with 3d balls and filled the empty space, and I brushed only crackle paste on the edges of the canvas.

 

I let it dry as well and I colored with pigments powders sprinkle with water.

 

Then I chose my embellishments and built my focal point, with a lot of flowers, butterflies, beads and little stickers.

Layout step by step – by Guylaine Seyer

Hello to everyone!

I am very excited to show you my first publication for DT Scrap FX.

I decided to show you step by step of my page :

Here is the process, step by step

I started by putting gesso on a white cardstock

Using a circle-shaped stencil that I created myself, I stamped with the foam FISSION stamp in green.

I sent a few drops of water on the green color to create an oxidation effect

I then mixed the ink with water to be able to put drops and slides on my background

I positioned the main elements of my page to be able to decorate all around

I chose the chipboard and transparencies from Scrap Fx and I altered the chipboard by embossing them with powder.

I integrated the Scrap Fx elements to my page as well as other various embellishments to finalize

Here is the page totally completed as well as close-ups.

Here is a list of Scrap Fx products used

Fission stamp

Steampunk Assemblage

Fractured Time MEDIUM

Antiquities transparency

Fragments of Time

 

All Geared Up To Read . . . a Scrapbook Page by Sharon

by Sharon Fritchman | 2 Comments

Hi fellow crafters!  I am excited to be sharing my very first scrapbook page made for the the ScrapFX design team today!

Here are some insights into how I made my page . . .

First, I knew that I wanted to scrap a favorite photo that I took of my daughter reading:

Next, I decided to use the “Storybook Ending” paper made by Reminisce.  Isn’t it perfect for a page about reading?

I trimmed and distressed around edges of bazzill cardstock which are 2 different shades of teal that coordinate with my colors in my daughter’s top in the photo. I fussy cut around the book and stars image, cut out some of the stars, and affixed them to my page. Then I fussy cut the photo of my daughter and added it right at the top of the book.

Next I machine stitched around the border of my page to draw your eye into the photo.

Now the fun part . . . I heat embossed the chipboard pieces: Illumination(light bulb), Accessory Cogs(gears), and the All Geared Up title.  I used Ivory embossing powder for my title, and silver, copper, and gold embossing powder for the gears and light bulb.

To complete my title, I added alpha stickers “to read” that I had in my stash.

Finally, I added some glitter and splats of black and white paint to add dimension to my page.

I have to tell you, it’s so quick and easy to make a fun scrapbook page that means something to you, if you have all the right products at your fingertips.  Please check out the ScrapFX store to find these chipboard pieces:

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I appreciate your visit and hope you get a chance to check out what the rest of the talented design team is doing this month.  I am looking forward to being back on February 26!  See you then.

Canvas Step by step -By Christine

by Christine David | Comments Off on Canvas Step by step -By Christine

Hi everyone!

Today I am with you to show you my first creation of 2019.
I made a canvas full of texture.
I made you a little step by step photos.

 

For starters, I used the stencil with
a black sand texture paste that I spread
with a silicone brush.

I let it dry. In drying it becomes darker, I love it !!!

Then I spread white gesso to soften.

For more texture I spread some crackle paste here and there.

I added color with the watercolor set.

I mixed 3D balls with medium gel.

I put the 3D bullets in a pile to create a thickness.

I spread some crackle paste on
3D balls and I made it dry with heat gun,
which created bubbles.

I added color with the watercolor set.

I put crackle paste on the chipboards.
Then to color them I use the same
watercolor only on my bottom and blue wax
(I forgot to take a picture of this step).

Then I made the arrangement that I softened a little with white gesso.

Product Scrap FX used:

Intersections stencil

Firefly Globe

Illuminated Time

I hope you enjoyed.
Have a good day!

Back to the 80’s…by Belinda Lowe

by Belinda Lowe | Comments Off on Back to the 80’s…by Belinda Lowe

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

Belinda here….the new kid on the block sharing my first layout as part of the 2019 DT. One of my favourite things to scrap are double pages……..

For you all today I have also included a brief Step by Step instruction for you to create my craziness if you like.

Please feel free to comment or contact me with any questions about my layout

I have used the following Scrap FX products

Here are the two pages individually

 

This is the LHS of the page, you can see the title “Old School”, the “Notepad Edge Stamp” and the “Mark Making Vees Stencil”

 

This is the RHS of the layout where you can see I have used the “Mark Making Vees Stencil and the “Notepad Edge Stamp”

And a little Step by Step for you all –

1.Spray your cardstock randomly with your colour of choice

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Randomly stamp whatever stamp you desire onto the pages

 

 

3. Place 2 strips of co-ordinating patterned paper onto the base of the layout

4. Place the same size strip vertically and central onto the RHS, I used random strips of washing tape to add some vibrant colour

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Using the Scrap FX Stencil, I mixed some texture paste with some colour and created random ….he he PAC-MANs

 

 

 

6. I them used 8 pictures all different sizes and arranged over both sides of the layout ( if you want to know exact sizes please comment below )

 

 

 

 

 

 

7. Using the same stencil I drew arrows onto the layout in random places

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. I then used the notepad stamp around the border both pages

9. Lastly I coloured the title by spraying it with the same ink I used in the first step and added complimenting colours also

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOTE: I also used complementing flairs to finish off the look

Thanks for taking the time to look, I am excited to be part of the team and I hope you enjoy all my crazy ideas I have to share with you, but before I go i’d love to know what your favourite part of the 80’s was….mine of course is the MUSIC

Till next time

Steampunk – a different perspective

by Niamh Baly | Comments Off on Steampunk – a different perspective

Hi all,

It’s Niamh here with two new projects to share with you. First up is a 12 x 12 scrapbooking layout documenting the first trip my husband and I took together when we were dating – cementing what nerds we were. The second is quick art journal page using lots of textures and collage. So lets get to it!

This page started out with an old piece of Basic Grey paper which I ‘stamped’ the intersection stencil  on by spraying it with ink then placing it on the background. Then I added the calculations stamp  randomly around the page using walnut stain distress oxide ink, as well as some other text stamps. This created a grungy background paper to add my focal point to.

I created my focal image by stamping the boxed stamp on vintage book paper and placing it behind my photo, then using a series of project life cards in my stash to add journalling spots and pattern around my photo. I also added a transparent quote from the Antiquities transparency to one of the PL cards using staplesOnce I’d taped the pieces together, I then layered them on shimmery vellum and tore the edges to add the distressed effect, and edged it with walnut stain ink to create a fine border around the edge. This helps to pop the cluster off the background.

The final piece of the puzzle was adding the beautiful steampunk chipboard elements to the layout. I used the fractured time – large, and a different perspective and started off by painting them black. I find it is always a good idea to give your chipboard an base coat of paint to make the colours pop, and black is particularly good for metallic. I then used my finger to pounce the paint onto the surface, which creates an uneven coat and some texture. This allows the black to peep through, giving a more weathered piece of metal look, plus the texture allows you to add gold wax to the surface, giving more definition and a rusting effect to the surface. Finally I added a thin white shadow to the words using a fine white paint pen, plus added my journalling to both the PL cards and my photo.

My second project was using the beautiful steampunk bee and the follow your heart quote in an art journal page all about becoming who you want to be (I’m so punny!!! lol).

This page started out in my small delusions journal on a clean up page which already had paint and collage on it. I started out by adding some gold texture paste to the two corners and it reminded me of honeycomb – so I went with that thought and this page was born. I used dark blue paints in the background (painting over the texture paste, then wiping away the excess on the surface with a wet wipe), and stamped text in white ink, and the boxed stamp in  black randomly over the page. I then stamped out the bees onto white tissue paper and glued them down using gel medium. I painted the gold on them using gold ink, and used clear glitter gloss on the wings. Finally I coloured my chipboard pieces, again painting them black and adding the metallic highlights with my finger to create texture and an uneven pattern. I love the bee in particular as it comes with the cog piece to add to the top of the body. If you look carefully it also has a honeycomb pattern etched into the surface of the body – which is why I chose to add gold wax to highlight the etching.

Here is a link to the full process of putting this page together:

A Different Perspective SteamPunk Canvas

by Deb Adams | Comments Off on A Different Perspective SteamPunk Canvas

Hi There,

I am sharing my first project for the Scrap FX Design Team of 2019.

Featuring their wonderful steampunk themed products of chipboard embellishments, stamps & stencils.

My focal image was chosen & fussy cut from an older Graphic 45 paper pack (Steampunk Debutante).  Love the way he looks hovering over the moon.

The moon image was made using a circle mask on my Gel Press plate with various acrylic paints in blues & neutrals on mixed media cardstock.

The Canvas Board (30 x 40.5 cm) was base coated with Black Gesso. Various Blue Acrylic paints were applied through the Intersections Stencil to the Paper & Canvas.

Randomly cut papers from the Collection were edged with a Picket Fence hole punch & everything stamped with the Head Circuit Stamp in Walnut Stain & Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks.

The Main Sentiment was coloured using Brushed Pewter & Tarnished Brass Distress Stain Dabbers

( & a tiny bit of blue paint)

then immediately dipped in a container of my favourite mixture of ‘dirty’ clear UTEE

& heated to make that gorgeous texture.

This mixture comprises fragments of Pewter, Black & Gold UTEE with mostly Clear.

It bubbles up in a very random, textured way when applied over metallic Distress Stain!

The UTEE mix can also be applied using an Embossing Dabber as I did under the moon & in various places around the edge of the project.  Love that texture!

          

The Chain and Clip, Steampunk AssemblageCogs & Wheels were heat embossed

with the UTEE mixture over metallic distress stain & black gesso.

         

The Fractured Time pieces around the moon were coloured in the same way.

Finished off with shading using Faber Castell Big Brush pens, stamped sentiment & some metal nuts & screw heads.

Keeping my eye out for an appropriate sized frame to display this project. Will be fun to alter too.

Looking forward to sharing some more steampunk projects with you later this month.

Hope this inspires you to use a few gears on your projects & to lay down some embossed texture.

Cheers for now,

Deborah Adams
