Best Wishes with a Spoon - Scrap FX Design Team

Sometimes creativity just hits you hard - like for this projects I made for my second post for the Scrap FX Design Team this month. I have had this spoon laying around on my desk forever and suddenly I came up with an idea on how to use it. Just recently, a new fancy restaurant opened in our little village. I´m so happy with it and with my 3 visits in a row the same week, you could pretty much call me obsessed. Sitting there with the envelope with my newely received Scrap FX products in front of me, my eyes fell on the spoon - and the project plan began to take shape. I figured out that I wanted to make a gift for the restaurant - sort of new birth gift - with a matching tag to go with it. This is how it ended up.

Both the spoon and the tag where covered with High Impact paint from Tattered Angels. After drying I added crackle paste mixed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to get a textured and worn effect. 

I added a home made rust paste (mix heavy gesso, glimmer mist and Finnabair texture powder to a thick paste) on the chipboard and on the edges of both the tag and the spoon. Then some glass beads, a flower and micro beads fore even more texture. The word chipboard got a two coats of High Impact Paint and a touch of Glimmer Glam for an extra wow factor.

Inspiration is Everywhere - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

We are heading towards darker and colder times up here in the North where I live. Like they say in Game of Thrones - Winter is coming. You might wonder how we can live up here in the cold, dark, godforgetten part of the world? Well the answer for that is air, crispy cold air, endless scenery, crisp white nature and silence. My layout for my October post at 7 Dots Studio take up on that - I made it clean and simply (my way - not that clean maybe).

I used a white cardstock as the base to symbolize the white nature. Splatters of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist & Baseboard Mist in blue tones ("Wave",  "Blue Bubbles", "Capri Blue", "Aquamarine") and stars stamped with the star stamp from Fortune Teller Clear stamp set create interest.

To create a texture I cut small pieces from 6x6 papers from the Fortune Teller Collection, that I stacked together with pieces of cardboard in between. A couple of tags, die cuts, stickers and a cool UmWowStudio flair finish of the layout nicely.

Thank you for your visit today! I hope could inspire you to create something with inspiration from where you live.

Good Fortune & Luck - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

It is time for a new fun and tryly inspiering challenge at 7 Dots Studio again. This month we encourage you to create projects about Fortunate and Lucky Things. As always the team has rocked the challenge and you must visit the 7 Dots Studio for inspiration. A click on the inspiration circle below will take directly there.

And now to my inspiration project. Good Fortune and Luck made me think of weddings. I decided to make a layout with my favorite picture from a wedding I was invited to photograph this summer. I decided to work with the Homegrown Collection as my base because I think the grungy & dreamy feeling in it fit perfect for a couple that are more Heavy Metal than Mozart (if you know how I mean).

I played with white Heavy Gesso on the centre of the "Wool" 12x12 patterned paper. I stamped on the hearts and sentiments with the Homegrown clear stamp set, and then painted the hearts with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in the color "Capri Blue". I used the same mist for paint splatters.

The page get it´s dimension by the layering leftover pieces from Destination Unknown patterned papers together with a couple of the tags that comes with the Fortune Teller. Snow paste gives an extra texture together with cheese cloth, glass beads and micro beads.

There can never be enough of paint splatters if you ask me - here with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist "Chalk". A fun detail that you can see on the picture above is the piece of lace that I "gessoed" down in the center of the layout. Just a piece from an old skirt of mine that I cut into pieces.

A sweet heart from the Destination Unknown Die cut sheet and the sentiment stickers from the Fortune Teller collection finish of the page nicely.

I hope that we will see your entry for this challenge at 7 Dots Studio.

Denim style card - Words & Paintery Cretive Team

Happy Saturday everyone! The October Challenge at Words & Paintery has seen it´s light and this month we´re going for Denim! This is my interpretation of the challenge - a card in denim colors with denim strips and a denim flower.

I glued on a piece of lace on a plain white cardstock base with clear gesso from Finnabair. Then when dry I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist "Denim Blue", "Navy Blue" and "Mountain Mist", then I applied water with a brush and dabbed on Tattered Angels Simply Sheer "Imperial Blue" with the same brush.

A bit of splatters with white Tattered Angels High Impact paint mixed with water gives extra interest. And micro beads from Finnabair extra dimension.

A flair from UmWow Studio finish of the project nicely.

I hope I will see your project submitted to the Words & Paintery October Challenge. Thank you for your visit today!

Shine Card - Scrap FX Design Team

It´s fall here in the North, -6 degrees Celsius when I write this. The leaves are shifting towards the orange, yellow and gold. That inspired me to create this card with the Fancy Feathers (both big & small) and the drawing Feather for this project for the Scrap FX Design Team.

I love how the feathers turned out when I colored them with orange stamping ink. A really easy way to transform the chipboard without destroying the texture.

I love the "swirly tail" on the drawing feather! It looks really good on a card like this. And it´s perfect that the Fancy Feathers come in a package of several feathers - they will last a long time!

The feathers create texture and dimension to the romantic card. Layers of patterned paper and sweet flowers can easily look to settled - I like a bit of a rough edge to my cards, somehow I think that it will be more interesting for the eye that way.

I hope that I could inspire you to create a fall card. Please visit the Scrap FX online store to buy the chipboard you need for your next crafty project! I also used papers from 7 Dots Studio "Lost & Found Collection" that you can purchase in in the 7 Dots Studio online store. I also splattered on Glimmer Mists in the colors "It´s Orange" & "Halloween Orange" (buy them here).

Thank you for your visit today - now I´m off to put on my warm socks....
