Scrap FX Shares

Hi All! Its my turn over at the Scrap FX blog- check it out here! 

I am SO thrilled to be a part of the Scrap FX team and am looking forward to my adventures exploring with chipboard! I hope that we can all gain inspiration from one another in the coming year!

I wanted to do a couple of shares with you so you can get to know my style. It just so happens to I had done quite a bit of white washing with these two layouts....hehe :)

This first one I was very drawn to the swirls of the flourish. When playing around with this piece, I was trying to decide which direction I wanted it to be going, then I spotted the beautiful butterfly frame in my stash- putting the two of them together, they became so harmonious and married well together. What a pair! I have primed these pieces and simply dabbed my finger in some acrylic paint and lightly dabbed and blended the paint onto my chippies.

For the next one, I was very much inspired by the gears on this beautiful tree chipboard peice. I love the masculine/steampunk feel it has.... I found this photo of myself and my DS and thought that they might be a good match :)

The background was created using lots of mediums I love the layers and layers it involved. I sometimes have to learn when to say when with the art mediums :)

The chippies were treated with the same manner. I primed them with Gesso, then inked with brown  chalk ink. For the tree, I used some beautiful Stampendous Embossing Powder in Marine and Bronze here and there. I finally VERY LIGHTY hit it with a thin layer gesso.
