Altered Jar for Scrap FX

Hi I'm on the Scrap FX blog today and I have a project to share with you to show how chipboard can be used for home d├ęcor pieces. I used a large pasta sauce jar and decorated it as a present for my Mum. She loves dragonflies and she is coming to babysit for us while my husband and I go away on holiday next week so I thought this would make a nice thank you gift.

To make this I started by painting the jar with a mix of gel medium and purple spray. This gave it a pretty purple transparent glossy finish.  I used a piece of Fab Scraps paper Peaceful 2 which I ripped two large strips and glued around the middle of the jar, and a circle on the lid. For my chipboard pieces I primed them with gesso before colouring them with gelatos. For the large Futterbly Dragonfly I put some Ranger Stickles over the wings and pearls down the middle. With the mini dragonflies I mixed micro beads with gel medium and put this on their wings and then I used liquid pearls down the centre.

Happy Summer for Bella Paperie

Hi everyone, today I have a layout I made for the Bella Paperie Store using the new Maja Designs collection Summer Crush. 

I started off my background by using texture paste though a Fab Scraps stencil - Desert Rose, then I sprinkled over stampendous embossing powder in Aged Ivory and heat set it. I used some Lindy's Stamp gang spays on the background in Azure Sea Asters, Cocklebells Coral, Opal Sea Oats & Clam Bake Beige. 

I also altered some of the flowers with the sprays so they matched the page.

I finished off with some pearl flourishes, butterflies and metal embellishments and I was done.

Maja Design Papers Used;
Summer Crush - Long Summer Nights
Summer Crush - Snapshots
Summer Crush - Butterflies in her Stomach
Vintage Spring Basics - 6th of May

I got inspiration for this page from the current Scrap Around The World Challenge #28
I loved the beach picture and the pale blue and brown colours together.

Captivating - Guest design for Scrap Africa

Hi all. I'm so delighted that I won the Top Hat award at Scrap Africa last month as was asked to guest design for a challenge. The challenge I am guest designing for is a mood board challenge with a brilliant bright fresh orange mood board. Orange isn't normally a colour I choose so I love that I got to try something different and I so happy with how this layout turned out. Head over the Scrap Africa Blog to give this mood board a try yourself.

Neverending Summer For Bella Paperie

Hi everyone, I have been making layouts for Bella Paperie using the gorgeous Lemoncraft collection Neverending Summer. I love this collection it is just so pretty. If you are in Brisbane you can get all these gorgeous Lemoncraft products from the  Bella Paperie Store, otherwise find them online at the Lemoncraft Store.

For this layout I chose to use the pink and blue colours of the collection. On my background I used the Fab Scraps stencil Desert Rose with texture paste and added colour with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in Azure Sea Asters & Cotton Candy Pink

I made my own butterflies using a Darkroom Door stamp - Wings and a sheet of vellum that I coloured with blue ink.

For this layout I used die cut doilies to back my photos with, I sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Spray in Cotton Candy Pink.  

I layered lots of flowers on this page as well as cutting out butterflies from the Lemoncraft Vintage Time Label Sheet 1.

Beautiful Music for Scrap FX

 Hi everyone, it's music month at Scrap FX. I'm up on the Scrap FX blog today and I have some of this months new products to show you. I had lots of fun with the theme this month I hope you enjoy my creations.

First up I have a layout 'Dance Like No One Is Watching'

To start I stamped the page with the Music Collage Stamp (2015203) using clear ink and embossed it with shabby white embossing powder. I also used this embossing powder on the Music Frame (2015188). The rest of the chipboard I embossed with aged gold embossing powder. I love the white and gold against the black background. Then I finished of the page with some splashes of gold and lots of flowers.

Next up I made a canvas

On this canvas I stuck with the white and gold embossing powders for colouring my chipboard pieces. But this time I paired it with soft pink and peach tones. I used the Music Transparency (2015202) on the background instead of stamping.

Time Machine Collection for Bella Paperie (+Video)

Hi there, today I have two layouts to share with you that I made for Bella Paperie using the new Time Machine Collection from Kaisercraft. This would generally be considered a masculine collection but I made one girly layout (with Video) and of "boy" layout. Boy is in commas because it still has my usual amount of flowers and pearls on it so I'm not sure how masculine it is.


Here is my video
