School Photo..... for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, just sharing my latest for Scrap FX...
So this is the only school photo I have of my hubby..... this was a few years before I met him... 

I created my background using lots of Scrap FX stamps over some tissue paper....

and the Numbers Stamp...

I also added the Harlequin stamp to the background...

I stamped the new Filmstrip Stamp underneath my School Photo title.... which is actually "School Photos" but I chopped off the "s"

Finally, I added the #schooldays which is just one of seven mini # words relating to school in the pack...

Imagine for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, just sharing my latest for Scrap FX...
a double page art journal spread; Imagine...
I love this new stencil... so so true.... and something to apply to life!!
 I created with background using the Moroccan Tile Stencil, before splattering some paint (a technique I learnt from the fabulous Lisa Oxley)...
Next I inked up the background using the Petal Pattern Stencil...
then the Chevron Stencil...
 I then stencilled on the saying.... love it!!
 I made the gum leaves using the Gum Leaves Stencil cut from another piece of paper prepared the same way as my background...
 I also stamped up a few flowers to finish off the journal spread...

I'm not Perfect

Hi everyone, I'm back today to share with you my latest piece for Scrap FX,
I'm not Perfect.. Just Awesome, mixed media canvas.
 With this piece I had loads of fun getting messy...
 I began painting up the Steampunk Octopus using Twinkling H2O's and Vivid Ultra Metallics... the pictures do not do him justice.... he is so shiny in real life...
 Next up I began creating texture on the background, using modelling paste and the new stencil, Mechanical Time.... this is a great new stencil, with cogs and clock faces...
I then painted the canvas up with varying shades of teal Vivid Ultra Metallics to create a shiny watery background...
then I added some gauze, cotton and art stones for even more texture...
I added the fun title, I'm not perfect, just awesome to finish off the piece...

Steampunk Mermaid and Enjoy the Journey

Hi everyone, I'm back today to share with you my latest projects for Scrap FX; Steampunk Mermaid and Enjoy the Journey...

First up a layout Enjoy the Journey...
The steampunk theme Enjoy the Journey title and steampunk Wire Heart Large where perfect for this layout...

 Love this new steampunk theme title; Enjoy the Journey ..... with the cogs.... I painted it up with the Vivid Ultra-Metallics True Silver and China Black...

 I used the new Mechanical Time Stencil to create background texture...

 I used the Wire Heart Large; to frame up the photo.... and painted it up in the same fashion as the title...

Finally to create more texture on the background I randomly stamped the new Clock Melange Stamp....

Next up I played with the new Wall Art Steampunk Mermaid... she is an oversized version of the Steampunk Mermaid...
She was loads of fun to paint up...

I used Vivid Ultra-Metallics to paint the mermaid in the vivid blues and greens...


I used more of the Vivid Ultra-Metallics True Metal paints mixed with some dry medium lang lang sand to create loads of rusty texture on these cogs....

for her hair I created texture with modelling paste before again painting it up with the gorgeous Vivid Ultra-Metallics paints...

Li'l Rascal and happiness for Scrap FX

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here, 
today I want to share with you my latest projects for Scrap FX
'Li'l Rascal' and 'happiness'

First up Li'l Rascal...
 I love this pic of my friends son... just way too cute...
 I used lots of different chipboard on this layout... the Chicken Wire here was painted with black gesso...
 I used the Grunge Stencil with some black modelling paste... more of the Chicken Wire and I die cut some cogs from the 12x12 chipboard sheet, can you believe I didn't have any Scrap FX cogs at the time! so this was the next best option...
 I chose the Li'l Rascal mini for my title and painted it up silver using the Vivid Ultra-Metallics True Silver.... the photo doesn't do it justice at all, but the silver is so shiny that it's impossible to photograph well....
 I used one of the Sketchy Stars (comes in a pack of 3 different sizes) and painted it up with Vivid Ultra-Metallics Red Poinsettia... you know these paints are amazing and the shine can't be beaten, I love them as much as I love my Scrap FX chipboard and you all know how much I love that... they are the perfect accompaniment for Scrap FX chipboard... 
The little skull was an embellishment I had in my stash...
 I also added the #coolstuff from the #girlstuff pack... again painted up with the True Silver...

Next up I have another layout to share, 'happiness'
 this layout features my neice Tilly.... she is a real water baby... look closely at the first pic and see how she has her toe blocking the sprinkler until she wants to let the water flow... she had me giggling all afternoon with her antics... such a little cutie...
 for this layout I used the Scribble Daisy Stamp... 
 I stamped the daisies and then fussy cut them before giving them a glitter centre (which did not photograph as sparkly and pretty as it looks)
 I used the Script Stamp to randomly stamp the background with shades of pinks...
 I chose the happiness midi for my title... it seemed the best fit, for how happy water made Tilly on this warm day...
 I also couldn't resist using the #goodfun from the #boystuff pack...
Finally I framed up the layout using the large Scribble Heart...
