Flash Back Friday

Hi Everyone – we are back again to feature two fabulous projects created using our Scrap Studio Collection.

First we have two beautiful tags created by Susanna Easdale.

This is what Susanna had to say about Scrap Studio Collection.

“I just loved the Scrap Studio collection – it was so Vintage in style which l just adore and really inspired me to make these tags for my Journal.” – Susanna Easdale

Here is our second project using the Scrap Studio Collection – a beautiful canvas created by Emillie Chamel for her baby daughter’s room.

Here is what Emillie had to say about Scrap Studio.

“This collection was actually the first lot of scrapbooking stash I bought in over 5 years as I stopped scrapping due to “life getting in the way. I was pregnant with my baby daughter when it came out and matched perfectly the colour combination I had planned for her nursery. I just love the pink and blue combination and adore all the gorgeous butterflies and as I am a “white” rather than “cream” kind of scrapper this was perfect for me!

We hope you are enjoying our Flash Back Friday creations! Thanks Susanna and Emillie for joining us this week.

Art Journal Page Tutorials by Kasia and Tatiana

Hello guys.. Kasia and Tatiana here today with an Art Journal Page.

Scrap studio screams mixed media and art journal to me and I loved using the different elements together with the new Kaiser Mists and Kaiser Ink pads to create this page. .

The colours of the mists are so vibrant and blend beautifully together, leaving a lovely shimmer when dry.

INSTRUCTIONS BELOW or
you can download printable version HERE

Tear small pieces of the Scrap Studio Paper pad papers and randomly adhere with gel medium to the page.

Roughly paint on white gesso to blend in the background.

When dry add the two doily stickers from the sticker sheet to the top and bottom of your page.

Adhere small bundled strips of muslin with gesso and allow to dry well.

Adhere strips from the sticker sheet, EXPRESSIONS and the paper pad down the bottom left of your page, slightly overlapping one another.

Apply texture paste through the two templates around your cluster of strips and allow to dry really well before moving to the next step.

Spray the Denim and Turquoise mists to the bottom left of your page and add a couple of sprays of water to help the colour move further. Add some sprays of yellow to the upper right of the page and allow to move into the blues to create a nice transition of green. Allow to dry really well and add another coat of colour if you like.

Using the permanent ink stamp a couple of butterflies, dots, film strip and doily images to add some texture and depth to your page.

Finish off by adding a couple of title strips from the sticker sheet and 3 fussy cut butterflies.

Lastly add a few splatters using the black mist.

I had so much fun creating this page I kept on going and playing with the mists a little more.

Below are a couple extra inspiration pages for you.

Foam Flower Tutorial with Bonus Layout.

Art Foam Flowers

We create for many different reasons,  sometimes for pleasure or perhaps to capture a precious memory or occasion that has happened in our lives.

Finding the right paper or embellishment can help us to achieve the reason why we have started to create in the first place.

Creating flowers adds an element of beauty to layouts.  They can be used in both masculine and feminine layouts.

By making them feel ‘vintage’ you certainly can  see how effectively they  compliment photos and papers.

Varying the size of the flowers also adds interest to layouts .

To learn how to make these flowers, watch the tutorial below.

By making my own vintage flowers, it creates cohesion to the look and feel of the overall design.
