Using Masking Fluid

Hello Scrappingclearly followers today I am sharing with you a technique using Fineline Masking Fluid and Talons Indian Ink.

Using 300gsm mixed media paper taped to a board you take the Fineline Masking Fluid and draw your image to obtain thicker lines I open the bottle and used a small paint brush and even a twig from the trees.

Once dry dry I then used a sea sponge and applied the ink over the masking fluid, when this was dry I then peeled the masking fluid off and there is your image.

I hope you enjoyed learning how to use masking fluid.

It's Starting to Feel A Lot Like Christmas

Hello Ruby Rock-It fans, today it is my turn on the blog today I am sharing with you a memory File I have created for this yours Christmas photo's

I have used the awesome Christmas Dreams Collection for my memory file. 

memory Files allow you to store so many photos and tell the whole story in one place. You can also use those photos that are not always the best but do tell the story.

Products Used:

Christmas Dreams 12x12 Paper Pad,  Christmas Dreams Die Cuts pack, Copper Square Envelope from Fundamentals, Christmas Dreams Washi tapes, Christmas Dreams Course Blue glitter Powder, Bella Bling. 


A project life plastic page, and some silk ribbons 

I have just selected pieces to layer with and then used double sided foam tape to mount them to add depth. A selection of file folders.


I have cut the file folders down to various sizes and then started covering them until I was finished. 

The front cover finished decorated

 The inside cover I just love that the 12 x 12 pad comes with glitter papers and I had to use the gold on this page for the first main photo will go.
I have also used lots of the die cuts to embellish page the page.  

On the next set of pages I have used the envelope so that I can record and store special notes and messages about our christmas day celebrations.  You can see from the photos that I have also used a mixture of sizes for my file and lots of interactive flips. 

her you can see the next set of pages which are designed for smaller photos.

Next I have used the project life page and to make it fit i have folded it over on a seam and the in one pocket I have used the glitter to create a shaker box.   

Next I have created a page that flips up so you can store approx 4 photos or 2 larger ones and then I have finished with a place to have a large photo. 

I hope you have enjoyed my blog post and found it inspiring. Kim

Scrappingcleary and Paper Arts

Hello Scrappingcleary followers, its my turn on the blog today and I have decided to share with you the amazing papers from Paper Arts, Artistry and Beauty.  

I love these papers they are so good for layering and if your unsure about using paint or mists then the effect is already there for you.

I have also used an array of the amazing Prima blooms that are stocked by Scrappingclearly to embellish my layout.

With these papers and layering of them I have found it was more pleasing to the eye to cut around the leaves and layer the paper under neath them as can be seen in the above image.

I just love how the title is already on the paper yet looks like I may have created it.

I hope you have enjoyed the creation I have shared with you and I look forward to sharing more with you next month Kim,

Art Journal Page

Hi Everyone today I am going to share with you one of my favorite art journal pages created using the awesome paint ranges stocked by Scrappingclearly.

I have used a Prima Vanity Fair art journal but this would work just as well in a Dylusion's art journal in any size.

I have used a combination of the amazing acrylic paints that Scarppingclearly stocks from Liqutex and Winsor and Newton.

I have chosen a blue and white pallet with just a of yellow I incorporated stamps and chipboard as well as Liqutex inks. I love how thinks flood and pool in the chipboard and how the white ink splatters so well.

Thank you for looking at my page. Kim

Abstract Art

I am back to day to share another piece of abstract art with you using the wonderful products available in the Scrappingclearly store.

Today's creation uses product from Jane Davenport's range  - her collage papers, and acrylic paints from Winsor & Newton

Abstract art work is all about randomness and using different and odd pieces to create an image that is pleasant to the eye, it is a very individual process and every piece is truly unique.

To create this I have used good quality french mixed media paper.
I have found when creating a larger piece, I have become what one would call a paper snob, this is because the better the paper, the better the products work.

I started by taking the Jane Davenport collage paper and tearing it into random size pieces and the adhering them over my page (this piece is A3 in size). The glue I have chosen to to use is the Dina Wakely Gel Medium. I have also secured my page to a board and water bathed it to prevent buckling you can secure it well with low-tack washi tape, I have used masking tape.

Once the gel medium was dry I layered random spots of paint over the page and, while the paint was wet, I added some clean sand into the paint. The paints used here are Winsor and Newtons Cadmium Yellow Medium Series 3Cobalt Turquoise Series 3 and Permanent Rose Series 3

Once the paint was dry I just shook off any excess sand, I didn't remove it all as it adds texture to the page. I then added random spots of shellac over the page, making sure to add it over some of the sand areas but not all.
There you have an easy but effective piece of abstract art.
This technique can also be used in your art journals.

Scarppingclearly DT share

Good morning everyone

Today I would like to share with you a painting that I recently completed using the amazing Windsor and Newton and Liquitex Acrylic Paints which are stocked in store at Scrappingclearly.

Did you know that you can use acrylic paints just like watercolour paints, yes that correct they retain the pigment colour better than watercolours all you have to do is use lots of water and blend the acrylic paint done as you will see in the following photos.   

I started out with an A2 size piece of mixed media paper one thing I will share with you about paper it does pay to buy the best you can this paper is a french paper with linen in it and oh wow it works a treat.

 I then started to sketch my duck in pencil I always us an F lead as it is softer and leaves no damage when erased.once I had my sketch completed I mixed my colours up and started to paint the duck in.

As you can see you wont need heaps of colour.

As I started to fill in the duck using a large water colour brush, you can see how similar the paint looks to water colour. 

As more detail is added

The colours of the watered down paint are brilliant as can be seen from the head details.
if using acrylics as watercolour you do need to remember they don't blend with each other as readily as watercolour and they do dry quicker. 


When I had my duck to the stage I thought it was complete I then added a layer of Iridescent Bright Gold from the Liquitex range watered down to a wash over the body of the duck and the applied a layer of glad wrap over that and allowed it to dry what that does is leave texture lines in the paint adding depth to the image.

Just look at the sheen from the Iridescent Bright Gold paint isn't it awesome.

Then I just added some splatters to the page to finish it. And now it is at the framers waiting to be framed. As you can see I have used a board and masking tape to secure my image, I have also given my paper a water bath on the board prior to using to allow it to stretch and shrink back to a flat surface which prevents the paper buckling when the paint is added. 

I hope you have all enjoyed seeing the creation of my duck painting and will now have more inspirations in using your acrylic paints in your creations, as these steps can also be used on your scrappbooking layouts and art journaling.

Until next time happy creating Kim
