A Ripper month of Scrap FX!

And Hello out there!!!! Wow already June????? No way!!!!! It is a little scary how quickly the year flies by and I know I have been neglecting this little creative corner, so I am back to rectify that matter!
I thought I would show one of my pages for Scrap FX this month. I was absolutely blown away by the products, they were particularly appealing, so I have so many pages to show.... you could say I was in a messy frenzy!!

This is the piece that inspired me so:
I'm not perfect.... (small)
Just brilliant!
So I nabbed some silly shots my son took while we were away of my nieces, they are  beautiful when they muck around with crazy faces!
I started by using the Circle Weave stencil with texture paste that I coloured using Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals powder, the result was very striking, so I added the spray in gold and various shades of  green as I did not want the background to over shadow the photo.


I then stamped in random spots and added washi tape strips in the shape of the large Scribble Heart that I happened to have on my desk.



I cut the heart to fit in the phrase and butted it up against the photo.
I did put a backing on the phrase as, even when I inked it up it got a little lost in the strip background.


I glued it all down, then embellished away with micro beads, thread, sequins (cannot leave them alone ATM), and some embossed teeny hearts that were chipboard.



And here is what I ended up with:


So there you have it, the first page of many to come using this release. Want to take a peek at the rest of the newbies head to the Scrap FX Store.
Thanks for stopping by!
