Scrap Fx Australia post June #1

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my first blog post in the month June.

I have for you three art journal pages as inspiration.

Long time I only needed watercolors to bring the so called finsh-touch on my project.

But at the moment I love to create and paint with them. 

I have lots of different watercolor brands so as Schmincke, van Gogh, Winsor Newton, Old Holland

Prima Marketing and 13@rts.

Each  watercolor brand has its advantages and disadvantages.

 I still love everything about my different watercolors.

So let`s start with my inspirations.

Broken Crayons still Color...

First I started adding the new collage paper classifields..
After that I stamped with the new stamp zinnia and the 9dots stamp in light pink watercolor.
And then I scribble with a red gel pen around the 9dots stamp images.
Yellow watercolor was my next step and then stamping with black ink.
The next step was black watercolor and then I added the transparency and 
the collage paper title. Splatters and white gel pen scribbling and my page was done.
All my pages are  create of the same way.

13@rts stamp group post in the month of May

 Hello everyone,

and welcome to my blog.

Todays blog post is all about the stamps from 13@rts.

I love stamps, I have more stamps as shoes :).

I have clear stamps, rubber stamps, soft-foam stamps , wood stamps 

and handmade stamps.

I keep my stamps in an old cabinet from 1930 and

 I have keep my stamps according to companys or topics: such as animals, natur or people.

My favorite mediums for stamping is of course Ink.

Distress Ink, Oxide Ink, Archival ink, Versa mark ink, Versafine and StazOn ink.

But I also try other mediums so as the 13@rts watercolors or Color Glows

and acrylic colors as well.

The stamp image on my mixed media projects do not have to be perfect,

 so for this I use the stamp without a clear block.

 For a good stamp image I used the Tim Holtz stamp plat- form.

13@rts stamps are clear stamps and each new paper collection comes also

with new stamp images.

Of course I have my favorite stamps of 13@rts

 and other companies as well always in a box on my desk.

 And a closer look to my page.
Unfortunately the camera has colored the background light gray
 in the close -up picture, actually my background paper is white. 
So sorry for that.

This is what I used from 13@rts:

Scrap Fx Australia blog post #2 May

 Hello everyone 

and welcome to my second blog post in the month of May.

I created an art journal page and a scrapbook page.

I had so much fun with creating this inspiration for you.

I bought the new paper dolls from Tim Holtz.

I knew immediately that I wanted to combine this men's group in vintage style,

 with the scribble figures of Scrap Fx.

So let's start.

A closer look to my page.

I created my layout on a paper-sheet from 13@rts which I covered with clear gesso first.

Than I started with adding color. Therefore I used the acrylic colors from Decoart.

After adding my color I started with stamping.

First with Archival Ink in green and after that with black.

My next step was adding black gesso and asemic writing with a white pen.

After that I added the transparency men`s washi tape black spatters

 and the kraft paper words from ScrapFx.

My next inspiration is an art journal page.

On this page I played with my watercolors in blue and yellow,

black gesso, transparency, silhouette and collage paper.

For my focale point I used also a couple from the new Tim Holtz paper dolls.

I used from Scrap Fx

Wordy Peeps transparency Scrapbook layout

Flower Frenzy transparency Art journal page

Bunch of Flowers BLACK Art journal page

Kraft Words STEAMPUNK Scrapbook layout

Text & Typeface LARGE FONT Art journal page

Scrap Fx blog post May #1

 Hello everyone, 

and welcome to my first blog post in the month of May for the company Scrap Fx Australia.

I have for you as inspiration one scrapbook layout and two art journal pages.

So let`s start with my scrapbook layout.

Every step of the journey is the journey.

A closer look to my page:

I started my layout on a paper sheet from 13arts called: Travel the world,

which I covered with clear gesso first.

After that I decided to make a white-wash on the paper background with white gesso

and a little bit water.

My next step was stamping and stencil work with Archival Ink and Scrap Fx stamps and stencil.

After that I did my paper layering behind the photo. I also decided this time to create

a scrapbook layout without 3D effect. That means no art-stones glitter and pearls.

Only transparency and chipboard from ScrapFx as my decoration.

My next inspirations are two art journal pages.

Circus de ScrapFx is my first one.

A closer look to my page:

I`ve been always looking to create something different with products.
This is what I love,  to challenge myself.
Here on this art journal page I used the gears collage paper
from ScrapFx to create something playful.
I had this art dolls from Mischief Circus in my stash
and voila an idea was born...just like that!!

My second art journal page is a little bit different in color combination and theme.
