Heart girl and Be humble by Claire

by Claire Stead

Hi all!

It’s Claire, with two more projects for Scrap FX- both of which I did in the junk journal Kraft kit from Scrap FX .

The first project is a page using the collage paper I designed for Scrap FX called Heart girl.

This is a fun, bright page using lots of colour and stencilling to create an interesting background.

I started off by adding lots of rainbow colour to the background- I used DWM paint in the colours Ruby, Tangerine, Lemon, Lime, Turquoise, magenta and Blackberry.

Then I added lots of layers of stencilling using the Stonework stencil, Nodules stencil and Number collage stencil

Next I used some stamps fro Scrap FX and added some more interest to the page. I used the Negative numbers stamp and the 9 Dot stamp too. (Click the images below to head to Scrap FX page)

Then I added the face image from the Heart girl collage paper and used Scribble sticks to add some colour to the face.

and for the second project I created a page with a slightly different feel using the Corrugated men and Co set as a mask.

To begin with for this project I added lots of collage paper onto the background- I used the Newsprint, Monogram modern and Label phrases collage papers.

Then I used three colours together on a large brush and swiped them across the page. This is a fun way to add colour to your page quickly.

Then I added some stencilling to the page using these stencils- Stonework, Don’t waste time and Number collage stencil. I usually do my stencilling on a page like this using the same colours I’ve already used on the page .

Then I added some splatters to the page using watered down white paint .

Next, using the Corrugated men and Co set- I used a chipboard shape as a mask and added two figures to the page and used the same figure as a focal point in the centre of the page too.

I also added some stamping to the page using the Cursive writing stamp and Crosses and Strokes too.

To finish off I added some mark making and journaling to the page.
