DT Scrap of Darkness 'Botanique'

Welcome!

a new Layout with papers and elements from our January kit 'Botanique'
 I used the papers from G 45 Nature Sketchbook Collection as background, cut outs and added some embellishments, flowers and the green crystal drops as pearls.

 

some details please




the flowers were originally yellow, I inked them with a red Mister paint,
so they are more fitting to the whole layout 


 butterfly stamp

 crystal drops


cut out from a tag as border

DT Scrap FX Steampunk Time II

Welcome!

and  the next two Steampunk inspirations for you and our Scrap FX Designteam
First a new desktop piece,
where I can collect my various pencils, markers,
notes and all the other thousand small things.

 

Scrap FX products used: 



I created an industrial look together with some acrylic paints
 from Decoart, crackle effects and stamps 


 look at the wonderful details on this black cardstock feather, 
AMAZING!!!
 I love all the little things on it, so filigree!


 I used it for the back front, so that you can also admire it from both sides.



based on a white gesso underground, 
a little bit black embossing powder on some areas and a rust acrylic paint


The gears are best suited to be stamped on a white background. I used a clear little script stamp.

 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

and my second project, a Layout,
where I used a big gear as frame for a family photo
can you see here

Many thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

DT Scrap of Darkness ' Botanique' II

Welcome!

Today another idea what you can make with our beautiful January kit 'Botanique'.
My idea was to use an old wooden bird house 
as home decor piece for my new springtime decoration.


I painted everything with a coat of DecoArt White Gesso and let it dry.
Then I started my alteration by using some Decoupage glue
 to apply a layer of old music paper. 
Only some areas I coated with Crackle white paste. 
When everything was dry I applied a layer ofDecoArt Media Antiquing cream 'Raw umber' 
 into the cracks and about the whole house and an aged look was ready.

 

I found on the 'Mother Earth' paper from G 45 Nature Sketchbook Collection
 a lot of motifs, which are very suitable for this bird house in nature look.
 So I cut out a yellow flower, fern leaves, butterflies and the funny grasshopper 
and glue it also to edge and as 3D (butterflies).



three small chipboards as roofing tiles


a burlap ribbon as bow and stripe together with two chitchat stickers
- blooming freedom -
 and my house was finished

Thanks for your visit!
Happy crafting!

DT Scraps of Darkness Kit 'Botanique'

Welcome friends!

My first Layout as Scrap of Darkness Designer,
thanks sooo much
for this fantastic opportunity
 I was so excited, proud and happy about this good news
and it's starting now :-)

The January Kit 'Botanique' is filled with a lot of paper
from Graphic 45 new collection 'Nature Sketchbook',
 a great set of papers, stamps and embellishments with nature feeling.

What could be more perfect for this theme than a beautiful memory 
with our sheltie dog  'Filou'. It was a wonderful trip into the mountains,
a lucky day
 with a lot of sunshine,
and warm temperatures.
 

You 're my heart!

 
 I used as background paper 'Plant Kingdom' from
 Nature Sketchbook Collection 
and some cutouts from 'Mother Earth' , a beautiful suitable chipboard tag 
from the Main Kit 
and I tried the Prima Rub on foil
 together with adhesive rub ons from the Elements Add on kit. 


great fun with a beautiful result 


decorative chipboard tag from G 45


 another cut out,  a flower and a feather together
 with a chipboard from Blue Fern Studios
 

two 3D hearts with cutting dies and old bookpaper

DT Scrap FX - Steampunk Time

Welcome!

Our theme this month Steampunk Time - yes, that's me :-) 
I decided to make a home decoration project. 
There were two bookends from sale which I painted with some acrylic paints.
Now they look even older, I love this distressed look.

 

Scrap FX products used:


this octopus is my favourite from our new chipboard steampunk series,
 he looks so cool and adventurous, or?!
firstly I used Glimmer Mist Verdigris as base ink
then added some embossing powders
black, copper and green,
as eye a little black pearl
and he was ready to glue it on the big letter


Reading a good book is also always a new journey and adventure and so was the wordlet 'Enjoy the journey '
very suitable for my bookends.


here as base ink Glimmer Mist Slate and a mix from black and copper embossing powder



Hopefully you will now feel even more inspired to create your own Steampunk project.
I really enjoyed working on mine!!!

Many thanks for stopping by!
Happy crafting!
