All things grow in love – By Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on All things grow in love – By Amelie

Hello everyone!!! Today I would like to present my first creation in October.

On this creation, I have a lot to play with 13@rts inks. I leave my chipboards natural (ok I confess, there is a little laziness in there !!!). I finished my layout by adding handmade flowers as well as feathers and dried roots of 13@rts.

Beautiful

by Scarlett Salamone | Comments Off on Beautiful

Hey There ScrapFX Fans! It’s Scarlett on the blog with you today sharing an art journal page. I recently picked up a new journal and though I’ve already started creating in it, I hadn’t gotten around to doing up the cover yet. When I saw the new Dramatic Dancer stencil, I was inspired, perhaps you will be as well!

 

I wanted a black background with some type of metallic pattern over to start. I had fun pouncing a variety of paints through the Circle Weave stencil to create this look. I’ll admit it was hard to proceed from here and I will be replicating this in the future.

From background to finished page. I initially tried to stencil right over this background with a colored texture paste I mixed up. That didn’t work out so well. I proceeded to wipe off the paste and then smudged some white paint around with my finger in the area I wanted my image. My idea of beautiful is imperfect. To represent this I really blobbed the paint on my pouncing brush and smooshed it through the stencil without much care for seepage. I rather like the flowy abstract look it created.

Here you can see the new Beautiful Rose chippie. I had other intentions for this at first but when I was pondering what wording to put with this, it seemed to work. The ease of shaping this delicate piece in to an arch made me a bit giddy. It really is a wonderful thing when things work out the way you see them in your head.

I had my creative heart set on this dancer having some type of texture to make her stand out a bit. In order to give her a more grunged up type look I simply blasted the wet paint with my heat gun. It bubbles paint up nicely and it is kind of fun to watch the unexpected results pop up.

Thanks for stopping by today! Take good care.

Art Journal “Feathers”

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Art Journal “Feathers”

I`m here today with a new page in my Scrap FX Art Journal. I love where this journey is taking me – when I made my first Art Journal spread for this blog my intention was not to create a Journal dedicated to Scrap FX. BUT I love exploring the products the brand offers, and I love playing with the stamps & stencils so this journal has become dedicated to this blog and a tradition as my first of the moth post.

This October I have been playing with these products:

Feather B Chipboard

Fancy Feathers Silhouette Small

Scribble Script stencil

Circle Weave stencil

I used different bright colored acrylics as base for my pages. I added the paints randomly with a broad flat brush and then dried it with a heater. I was really keen to see how the Circle Weave stencil would turn out. I decided to use black chalkboard mist from Tattered Angels to figure it out. The effect turned our really cool. The pattern in combination with the bright acrylics looks like a Oriental rug.

I also added more texture & contrast with white gesso that I applied through the Scribble Script stencil. The white letters really pop against the colorful background. I added the black chipboard feather for even more dimension and the black silhouette feathers tie really well in with the theme.

I really love how this spread turend out and can´t wait until next month when I get the chance to continue my journey in this Scrap FX Art Journal (as I nowdays call it…).

Products from the Scrap FX store:

  • 2017317 Feather B
  • 2017325 Fancy Feathers silhouettes small
  • 213171 Scribble Script stencil
  • 2014093 Circle Weave stencil

Thanks for stopping by today!

12×12 Layout by Lynn Good

by Lynn Good | Comments Off on 12×12 Layout by Lynn Good

Hi everyone, Lynn here today to share a layout I have done using some wonderful Scrapfx chipboard and 13 arts paper

For the background I have used a Dylusion stencil – Bowl of Cherries and white texture paste.  Once dry I have applied 13 arts Ayeeda Powder, Rainbow Colour Duo – Lilac

I have fussy cut the butterfly and doilee from the collection pack.  The butterfly is highlighted with dimensional magic.

I have painted the chipboard with white gesso – I wanted to keep them plain as they stood out against the coloured background.

 

I have linked the products used below:

Feather A

Lotus Flourish C

Lotus Flourish B

Lotus Flourish D

 

Until next time – Happy Crafting 🙂

Stunningly Beautiful

by Renee Aslette | Comments Off on Stunningly Beautiful

Hi There Friends,

It’s Renee here to share with you my first layout for the month, featuring some of the yummy new releases for the month.

I really loved creating this layout of my mum.

I don’t always have the opportunity to go pretty, surrounded by so many men in my life.

Here are some close-ups:

To add some texture to this layout, I used the Cross Confetti – Stencil.  This is such a versatile stencil.

This is the Lotus Flourish A chipboard with some Shimmerz painted on.

It is such a beautiful delicate piece and just the perfect thing to go with this layout.

The Stunningly Beautiful chipboard is the perfect title.

We all think our mums are stunningly beautiful.

Thank you so much for stopping by! xx

wishes DO Come True….. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on wishes DO Come True….. by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone, today I’d like to share my latest layout for Scrap FX using their latest releases… “Wishes Do Come True

This is a gorgeous pic of my girlfriends gorgeous grand baby… I’ve used a couple of printed papers I created on my Gel Press plate to create the base of my layout…

I have added the new title “wishes Do Come True”  painted up with some Twinkling H2O’s… I just love this title, I see so many uses for it….

I also used the new  Crescent Frame and painted it like the title using Twinkling H2o’s…. this is such a gorgeous frame, I saw Michelle Logan use it on a journal page she created and immediately fell in love with it, I couldn’t wait to create with it…

I used the new Buttons B Script stamps, and stamped them onto some white cardstock using Archival inks before using my circle punches to punch them out…

 

I added the butterfly (Flutterby S Lacy) painted up with True Silver Vivid Ultra Metallic… doesn’t it look fabulous with all that shine from the True Silver paint…

and finally I added a second smaller butterfly(Flutterby G Classic) also painted up with the True Silver, to my title cluster on the layout…

Here’s a recap of the Scrap FX products used on this project:

Wishes do come true..

Hello dear friends

I am back sharing projects featuring the gorgeous new releases here at Scrap FX.

Scrap FX Products used

Wishes do come True

Lotus Flourish B

Lotus Flourish C

For the layout I used paper designed by Fiona Platridge and 13arts. First I added some texture and embossed it with Tinby design melts. I mounted and framed my photo using a die-cut frame.

Next I created my flowers by fussy cutting them from the transparency sheets and molding them over a candle.

Next I painted my title with 13arts acrylic paint. I then decided to make the lotus flowers white by inking them with white Brilliance ink.

I placed my photo and carefully created a visual triangle by creating 3 clusters of flowers. I added texture to rest the flowers on using tulle and lace. Last but not least I added a bit of mica flakes and grid.

Scrap FX Products used

DanceTransparency

I just loved this new transparency and decided to create 3 ATC cards. I cut 3 panels of patterned paper measuring 2.25 x 3.25 inches each. I also cut 3 transparency panels of the same size. I added gel medium to the patterned paper panels and affixed a transparency panel to each one.

Next I added a panel of chipboard to the back of each panel and mounted it on a 2.5 x4.5 card base.

I wanted the transparency to be the focus and simply added one strip of German scrap or paper lace to each card. Last but not least I finished it off by adding a small cluster of flowers, tulle and wordstrips by Flutterby Designs.

Thank you so much for visiting us today. Please visit us again to see what other fabulous new design the st has used this month.

Till next time take care and have fun.

Christmas cards by Kate

by Kate Dachovska | Comments Off on Christmas cards by Kate

Hi,

it is end of September so officially we can start Christmas inspiration! I made three cards with Kaisercraft papers. They are very light mixed media – for the background I used embossing paste and sparkle clear embossing powder and for colouring chipboards I used Brusho Metalic acrylic shimmer spray – gold. I did also some sewing – sewing paper is fun.

Have a nice day
