Adrenaline Rush..... for Scrap FX

Hi everybody, thanks for joining me here. Today I'd like to share my latest layout...
I was in a real "painty mood" when I was creating this layout... so I began with just a white cardstock and some paint... everything is a canvas right?? anyway a bit of abstract design and bam! one unique background for my layout... I tried to convey the rush of speed I feel riding, especially on my Harley with an open faced helmet... nothing compares to that adrenaline rush... hence the title lol...
I painted the title "Adrenaline Rush" to match the background colours.... gave it a bit of an ombre look... love this new title and just perfect for my riding photos...
I added the new cranks chippies.... these are nice detailed cogs and come in several different sizes for all your "coggish" is that a real word? needs... these are from the cranks small pack...
Here's a last look at the whole page...
that's all from me today...  thanks for visiting...
till next time
Happy Creating

Whale of a Tale..... for Art and Soul Studio

 Hi everyone, I'm back with you today to share my latest piece for Art and Soul Studio, an intuitive painting "Whale of a Tale"  that I created using the Fluid Media paints from DecoArt....


haha.... did you get my little funny in the title... I know I know it was lame... but the play on words tickled my funny bone.... anyway as the piece says... "always remember to have a whale of a time!"

When I sat down to make a piece for this blog post, I had no idea what to paint... so I started as I always do if inspiration is lacking, and put some colour on paper, and let it just happen... and this was the result today... hope you like it...

I made a little process speed video so you can see how this intuitive piece came together...
Here is the video...

hope you enjoyed my process,

Weird Peeps.... for Scrap FX

Hi Scrap FX fans, thanks for joining me here.... today I have an Art Journal spread to share with you all... "Weird Peeps"
So this art journal spread, didn't end up anything like I originally planned.... I was planning on doing an abstract type design showcasing the new awesome foam stamps... but as I was stamping the background the stamp placement looked like weird little peeps... so I went with the flow and decided to make it all about the weird peeps instead...
So for my weird peeps bodies I used the new Boxed Stamp can't you just see the stubby little arms and stubby little legs...
for their heads I used the Radiant Circles Stamp, I really love the detail in this stamp... all those inner detailed circles and lines...
for the eyes I used last months release, the Circle Marks Stamp, it has four stamps in one,
so my peeps could all have different size and pattern eyes...
Here's some close ups of their heads and eyes...
for added texture on my background I used the new Round to Square Stencil...
I finished off the spread with the She Stamp and some random text stamping...
one last look at the total spread...
I hope you enjoyed my weird peeps as much as I did creating them... till next time
Happy Creating

Art Junk Journal for Scrap FX....

Hi Scrap FX fans, thanks for joining me here. Today I'm sharing my latest creation... "Art"

This is one of the new Junk Journal Kits.... Chevrons, these are fun little kits containing all sorts of materials making up the pages, including a map page, several laser cut pages, an envelope for the cover, an acetate sheet, and more...

I decorated the cover using the new Art phrase stencil, I only applied the "art" from this stencil on the cover, I used the whole stencil further on on the journal... I also used the Paint Brushes stencil to decorate the cover, along with Grunge Alphabet stamp....

On the inside cover, I used the Number Collage Small stencil...

Here you can see the full Art phrase stencil, along with with the Harlequin stamp and the Script stamp and you can see here one of the laser cut chevron pages from the kit...

this is one of the laser cut shaped pages in the kit... and behind it you can see the map page included in the kit... I stamped the page up using the Script stamp...

Another of the laser cut pages, with a honeycomb cut out.... stamped up with the Script stamp... I used the Learning to Fly silhouette to decorate this page...

On the other side of the page, there is more of the Script stamp and the Number Collage Small stencil...

Here is another of the laser cut shaped pages, this one is like an index folder... on this page I used the laser cut chevron page to stencil the top corner... and the added the Grunge Alphabet stamp...

on this page there is more of the Script stamp and the Number Collage Small stencil...

the other side of one of the shaped pages, decorated with the Number Panel stamp...

One of the text book pages in the kit... stamped with the Script stamp...


Another laser cut page decorated with the Art Deco stencil and the Harlequin stamp...

this reverse side of that page... more of the Script stamp....

Inside the back cover.... Number Collage Small stencil...

On the back cover; I used the Grunge Alphabet stamp and the Brick stencil, and the Round & Round stamps, and the Scribbles stamp...

and just to finish off... a few close ups...










thanks for joining me today... these new Junk Journal Kits are so much fun....
Mine is only half done so far... but it's been a ton of no stress creative fun...
