Scrap FX Reveal #3

Hi again :). It's Sunday morning here and it's been an interesting weekend. I went raspberry picking a few times on Saturday- stepped on a bee's nest and a red ant nest (miraculously no stings or bites!) and an animal was crashing through the woods that scared me off- BUT- I did manage to come away with enough berries for my first batch of raspberry jam for the year! It was definitely worth it! I'm hoping to get back out this afternoon- checked out another one of my spots with the four wheeler yesterday and it looks ready to go- so I'd like to make a raid! :)

But anyways, I'm back again today to share with you my final project this month for Scrap FX. I've really enjoyed working with their stencils this month, in addition to their amazing chipboard selection. Here's a look at what I put together using both products:

"Pretty as a Picture"
My baby girl Aspen really is a doll!! :) Let's take a little walk-through of my layout...

Absolutely loved this beautiful title piece, “Pretty as a Picture“. I’ve painted it with gesso, dabbed with some rose-colored ink, and then topped off with some white Stickles for a feminine glittery touch :) . Beneath my title and behind the small cluster, I’ve used the “Flower Pattern Stencil, small” along with some texture paste, which I cut out and placed behind my arrangement.

 This lovely piece is from the “Lamp Shades” pack. I’ve painted it with gesso before topping it off with 3 different inks: rose bud, old rose, and shabby tote, and then finally finished with some Stickles. Add some bling and a couple flowers, and you’ve got one pretty embellishment!

 I’ve used the same stencil in the lower corners and along the top of my layout.

Gotta love frames! These two actually came as a secondary frame in the packs of more “fancy” frames such as the “Decorative Frame C Classic“. These have been painted with a coat of gesso before using a couple different stamps to create the pretty designs you see here. Blings and pearls are all the more I needed :) .


 Just a closer look at my large flower cluster. Isn't that main bloom beautiful? I won it in a RAK from my Scrappin' Patch teammie Annelie Maddock :).

Another view of the cluster...
