Scrap Fx second blog post in the month of October

 Hello everyone,  and welcome to my second blog post for the company ScrapFx Australia. I created for you two scrapbook layouts in mixed media style. Let`s start with Twiggy.... A closer look. Technique: For a beautiful watercolor effect on the chipboard it is important that you add white Gesso first. The Gesso ensures that the watercolor is not absorbed by the chipboard and the typical watercolor look is visible. I always dry my watercolor chipboard over night. Finishing touch: Finnabair wax, Vintage Gold. I used also: Gesso and watercolor 13@rts and the beautiful ScrapFx chipboard: Floral frame. My paper from 13@rts is called: Unforgettable My next layout is called: Vision... A closer look: I used for my two layouts: Floral frame chipboard Flowery Bits by Michelle Logan Treasures of Yesterday title chipboard                               Field of Flowers Stamp                                  Flower Buds stencil                              Antiquities transparency                  

Mixed Media Layout "Beautiful"

Hello my dear reader, finally my favorite season of the year started, I am so happy. October,  the start of the fall season. Alexander Smith`s quote circumscribes the new month perfectly: "In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those  of a fine October". I really love it when the wood sidewalks are covered with leaves on my morning hike. The smell of baked apple with marzipan, hot chocolate and pumpkin soup is filling my house. Soon the shelves will be filled with the first Christmas candy and first Christmas decoration. So exciting!!! But anyway, I have for you a scrapbook layout in mixed media style. I created my page on the new paper collection Bella and Sunrise. What I really love is to combine different paper collections. For this page I was also inspired by the October challenge Mood Board. Please look at the sidebar for the current challenge from 13@rts. Beautiful... A closer look. Here is a short description of my background. I like to cre

Scrap Fx blog post #1

 Hello my dear blog reader, Heike here from Heike`s AugenBlick and I am your host for today. With Halloween around the corner, I decided to create a scrapbook page in mixed media style with the theme "Halloween". I love everything that has to do with Halloween. The decoration, the creepyness, the costumes and and and... It`s just so sad that Halloween doesn`t play a big role here in Europe. My dream is: I want to spend Halloween in Disney-Land America. That must be so cool. How about you, do you like Halloween too?  But anyway.. Keep calm and create I started my layout on a paper-sheet from the "Down under" paper collection from 13@rts which I covered with two layers of clear gesso. After my gesso was dry, I added Archival red ink to a stencil from ScrapFx. Then I stamped with the same Archival red ink and a stamp from ScrapFx. Archival ink becomes waterproof after drying the ink with a heat tool. Red liquid paint as teardrop.  I made my embellishments with Tim Holt

More than words night and no flower main challenge

 Hello everyone  and welcome to the new main challenge on the blog from More than Words. Here is the link to More than Words: for this challenge I had the perfect paper in my stash. "Under the stars" of 13arts. I wrote the word NIGHT on my background. For the creative challenge NO FLOWERS, well that wasn't that difficult for me, I'm not the big flower user anyway. On the photo my daughter with her best friends. My inspiration explanation: There are two types of people. There are the early risers, the so-called lark birds and there are the late risers, the so-called owls. I belong more to the lark-birds that means that I can see little of the summer night sky because I am mostly asleep. Only in the Autumn months I can see something of the night sky and that's always something very special. I love the clear autumn starry night, it gives me a taste of the festive season before christmas. Night... our prizes.... I see you
