Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today, I have my latest shares for Scrap FX...  Adore and We're all Mad here.... First up is "Adore"


Another pic of one of my gorgeous nieces "Tilly" she is such a character...

I created my background using the Numbers Collage Stencil and my Gel Press plate.

I added more detail to my background using the Seed Pod Stamp, large...

I added the new Flourish 20 to the bottom of the photo, it's one of several new flourishes Scrap FX released  this month...

I finished the layout off with my title "Adore"... 


Next up I have "We're all mad here"....

this is the group photo from my retreat in May, we had a rainbow colour theme and the ladies didn't fail to join in the fun...

As soon as I saw this new Mad Teacup title "We're all mad here" I knew I had to do a layout with this photo... just perfect...

I added some modelling paste through the Coffee Love Stencil to my background.... it's a great stencil...

To finish off I added the Steamy Curls  to either edge of my photo...

Creative Paperclay® June tip for saving money....

Hi everyone, and welcome.

 Today I am sharing my June tip/technique. I have a quick tip to help save you some money (we can all use that right?) and have some creative fun at the same time.

This is an idea I came up with while looking to get myself some smaller tools to sculpt with. To start I did what most of us do right - I went to google, lol... I found many people making their own tools, but out of aluminium and brass tubing.  This didn't seem economical enough for me, so I decided to create my own from a few household items and paperclay...

Supplies:
Large paperclips
Small paperclip
Sewing Pins


Directions:

I began with my Creative Paperclay® and some basic household items.... some sewing pins and oversized paperclips...

 I removed the heads from the pins and then bent the ends slightly.... this is to ensure that they don't pull out of the formed clay handle once dry....

I applied clay both underneath the row of pins and then on top of the pins

 I kept adding clay and smoothing it out until I was happy with the size and shape, and set it aside to dry...

 Next I began with one of the large paperclips, opened it out, and left the curves of the paperclip in tack...

 I embedded the paperclip into a lump of clay...

smoothed the clay around the paperclip, and again set aside to dry...

 For my final tool, I used some jewellery pliers to make smaller loops from my paperclip...

 I again embedded the shaped paperclip into a lump of clay...

 and smoothed the clay around to form the handle....

Once again I set it aside to dry...

Once the clay was dry I grabbed out my Silks Acrylic Glazes and painted my new tools... Naturally I chose two of my favourite colours, Spiced Pumpkin and Rich Cobalt...


 So with a very small amount of of Creative Paperclay® and some basic household items I have four new tools to start creating with and I can't wait to get started.... look out for my next Creative Paperclay® blogpost where I will make use of my new tools.

thank you for stopping by and joining me here today

Till next time

I added some modelling paste using the new Coffee Love Stencil... great new stencil with a couple of coffee stain rings and a great coffee mug...

 I added some random stamping using the Chicken Wire Stamp...


I also used the new Clock Hands Stamp to add some extra detail to the background...

I added a 2017 from the 2017 year pack I love these packs... so handy...
and you can see some more of the coffee stains done with the modelling paste ...

Imagine and Mum for Scrap FX

Hi all, today I'd like to share with you my latest creations for Scrap FX..."Imagine and Mum"

First up I'd like to share an art journal spread "Imagine"
I had fun with loads of paint, pens, scribble sticks and paste creating this spread...

I used the Denise Stencil, isn't it fabulous... I really love this stencil...
in the background I have used: the Petal Pattern Stencil, the Random Dot Stencil and the Scribble Script Stencil

I chose to use some of the words from the Imagine Phrase Stencil.... it really is quite a versatile stencil, when you think outside the square...

More stencil use on the background, here using the Moroccan Tile Stencil..






A last look at the individual pages....


Next up I have a layout to share "Mum"
A pic of mum on a flight to a retail event.... she always wore one side of her headphones off like that so she could hear me as well as whatever movie was playing...

I used the Liz & Sue Stencil large (there are two sizes of this stencil) to create images on my background...

this awesome stencil has both the the positive and negative forms .... so you can use it as both a stencil or a mask as I have done on this layout...

I framed my photo with the Butterfly Circle small - this frame is also available in a larger size... 

isn't it such a pretty frame...

To finish off my layout... I used an oldie for my title "mum-script"
