Junk Journals for Scrap FX

Hi Everyone, Today I am super excited to show you the new junk journals available at Scrap FX


above is the nature kit which shows what is included in each pack - the transparency and cuts outs change depending on the pack.  For this sample I have used the Construction kit -


I have used dylusion paints, Dina Wakley paints,  gelli plate and stencils to create my background.  I have then added some black stamping, stencilling and paint pen marks.
I have created this journal with the intention of using it to write down about my days and things around me - it could be a big write or jotting down things I need to remember.  Once this signature (junk journal) is complete I will add another different cut out journal to create a second signature so I will end up with a thick journal consisting of a number of signatures for the year.  I will come back and show you more.
Here are some close ups:










Products Used:


For my second project I have created a 12x12 layout:





I have coloured the chipboard with Faber Castell Pitt Pens and covered the gears  with dimensional magic as well.

added :  I have finished a second Junk Journal - here are some photos:





I hope that you have found some inspiration in my projects - til next time - Happy Crafting :)

Scrapbook layout for Scrap Matrix Design Team

Hi Everyone,  Today I am on the Scrap Matrix blog to share my layout created with this months challenge - TIC TAC TOE as well as monochromatic.  My chosen colour is purple - some people love it, some people hate it. It has always been my favourite colour.





Here is the grid:


Just follow a line - up, down or diagonal - I have used the bottom line - Chippie Shape, German Scrap and Paper Flower


I have used the paper collection Northern Lights by 7 Dots.




I began by applying texture and marks - I have used whipped spackle and a 13 arts stencil.  Once dried I have coloured the background with 13 arts Ayeeda Paint - Pink, Indigo Noilet and Lilac.
Stamping has been randomly done with the gorgeous stamp designed by our own Australian Fiona Paltridge for AALL & Create



I have then used some embossing powder Silver Moon Sapphire (Lindy Stamp Gang) 

Here are some close ups:












Remember you can team it with neutrals, and to follow one line on the grid - 
The line can be up, down, or diagonal.

To be in the challenge you only have to add your project to the Scrap Matrix Shares group on Facebook, and let us know which Scrap Matrix products you used.....it's not necessary to have a blog, just add your entry to the current challenge album.
Here are a list of the products that I have used:



Til next time - Happy Crafting.

Art journal page and a card for Visible Image Design Team

Hi Everyone, Today I would like to share an art journal page and card that I have created for Visible Image Design Team.

I have used the striking Strobes Stencil on the art journal page






I found it easiest to adhere the stencil to my craft mat as I was applying a number of colours.



I started at the top and worked by way down using Tim Holtz Distress Inks



Once dry I have stamped the head in black ink using my misti so that I can stamp it a number of times.


Products Used:










I have also created a second card using the same technique with the Fibres stencil:












Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have found some inspiration in my creations.
Til next time - Happy Crafting :)
