Tell your story - Scrap FX


Today I'm sharing here the first of two pages done for Scrap FX this month with the new release. The other one is sweet, romantic with a touch of vintage in it and other one blue and more modern. Both are still done using mainly the new collection.


Let's start with the vintage styled one. The photo on the page is of my daughter who sat by the window of my mother-in-law's summer cabin just minutes after we had arrived to the place. The light was perfect and luckily I had my camera nearby so I managed to capture the fleeting moment before it was gone. Somehow her pose and the light from the window reminded me about a poet or a painter. To tell you the truth, she was actually sketching and drawing the scenery.

I wanted to make a soft page out of the photo which actually captures something quite essential of my older one. I chose to go with a tiny rose patterned paper which has the air of days gone by and some tea stains, too. I continued the soft look with the chipboards I chose to use but also with the flowers. A touch of earth is also added to the page as I added some acorn hats in there as well.


The background of the page is done using the "Squared" stamp and the "Art Deco" stencil. I also added some watercolor in there to continue the dyed look. The main composition of the page is done by adding the "Art Deco Flourish" to the side of the photo while the "Art Deco Border" decorates the other side. I've also included one letter from the "Art Deco Alphabet" set to my page from the new collection.

There's also the birds from the "Ornate Clock" in there as well as a flower, a butterfly and the bow from past collections - can you spot them all? All the chippies are left in their original color but the harsh black birds got some white color on them to make them a little grayish.

Please be back tomorrow to see the other page - made in a totally different style! Thank you for your visit today!
