Scrap Fx post #2 February 2020

Hello everyone,

 welcome to my second blog post on the last day of February.

My second post for Scrap Fx is also with steampunk products of them.

I think it doesn't always have to be brown, gold or rust color at steampunk.

I created for you as inspiration two scrapbook layouts.

Lucky is a state of mind.

I used for my chipboards purple and turquoise color and glitter embossing powder.
Left over stickers from 7 Dots studio and Tim Holtz.
Handmade flowers and die-cut leafs.
Photo from pixabay and a women stamp images from my stash.


 A short description of my layout "amazing"

I used a sheet of the new paper collection from 13@rts called "Unforgettable"
and I started with clear gesso and after that a light white wash over my page.
Then, I stamped with the chickenwire stamp from ScrapFx and Archival Ink.
My first color layer was Mist pastel pink from 13@rts.
I added a little piece of collage paper typeface from ScrapFx on my background.
The next step was black acrylic randomly added on my page.
After that I used a stencil words of wisdom with modeling paste and glitter embossingpowder.
I colored the chiboards dreamcatcher and amazing with a mix of white gesso a little bit navy blue rainbow color and acrylic medium, for the finishing touch,
on my focal point chipboards I used silver glitter.
The domino chipboards are colored in black gesso.
For the paper layering behind my photo, I used the ScrapFx collage paper typeface and a sheet from the 13@rts A6 Rosalie paper pad.
Mica, art stones and sequin for my decoration and splatter in black, pink and light blue.

I used from ScrapFx...

More Than WordsDesign Team Inspiration #February 2020

Hello everyone,

today it`s my turn to inspire you with a scrapbook layout

for the February challenge on the blog from More Than Words.

Here is the link to MTW:

Our February challenge is "RUST for the creative challenge and

                                           "THE PAST for the word challenge.

Awesome challenge right?

I created a scrapbook page in honor to my mother.

Here is my inspiration for you.

How did the word "THE PAST" inspire me?  Actually it was the photo from my mother's past that inspired me to design this layout in honor to her. Because of water damage that we had in our house a long time ago, many photos of my family have been destroyed. In total, I was able to save three original photos of my mother. These photos are now my little treasure from the past. For the creative RUST challenge, I tried to create the effect of rust with the help of acrylic colors: burnt sienna, yellow ochre and orange.
