Summer has Arrived at Scrap FX!


Hello everyone!
Back again after a little break....been enjoying the sunshine far too much!
I have been Playing with "beach" themed products from  Scrap FX.

Enough prattle lets get on with a peek of the playthings!!

First, feist your eyes on these coral inspired chippies:
Coral B chipboardCoral CCoral A Chipboard

I have used these on the LO below with a generous sprinkling of embossing powder! If you look carefully you may be able to notice that 2 of the corals also come in white paper, I have coloured it here to suit the page, just adds a lovely layer to a cluster of goodies!



This coral piece is one of the pair (coral C) and I have combined it with one of the shell pack pieces from the existing range.
Whilst on the coral theme there is also an awesome stencil! I love how you can create with the positive or negative (they come together in the pack......Awesome!!!) So great to create the underwater feel to your backgrounds, as I have tried to do below with inks and crackle paste by Viva Decor. These stencils are not limited to the beachy theme I can see myself using them in a variety of ways, love products that are versatile!

But wait there is more......A Stamp too!!!
I have used it with gold ink on my background.

Just a few close Ups before I reveal the whole thing!



And here is the finished page:





Scrap FX have also started selling a limited amount of board to create with in several sizes and weights, so I decided to have a play with these layouts, "Waters Edge" was done on 1.8 and this next one I used the thicker 2.4.
Both worked a treat and did not warp as much as card stock would with the 2.4 coping slightly better with all the mediums I tend to use. I really recommend using the thick board it was fun throwing stuff at it without the worry of warp factor!

I used Coral B on this one and the random dots stencil with a midi and word set title.



See what I mean about a few mediums on the background? Really tested out the board!


Texture paste,ink, paint, embossing powder mesh and micro beads a plenty!


So thats about it for me today, be sure to check back to the Scrap FX blog to see more inspiration and dazzling work from the DT!!
