May Inspirations With Novita Ferris

Hello everyone, 
Novita here with you today to share a few projects I have created using some awesome Scrapmatts chipboard pieces and stencils. 

The first project I've made is a mixed media layout. 

"The Time" 
 Follow Your Heart & Dream 

To create the background I used lots of media products....
First of all I used two different stencils and sponged heavy white gesso and then added some ink on the paper. Once this layer dry I added some random stamping. 

For the chipboard, I coloured the pieces with black ink, then added some adhesive before sprinkling some flakes on.
I added some papers layers with tag from my stash and adhered them behind my photo before I started embellishing. 

Here are some close up photos....

My second project to share with you is a card!

It's always handy to have a few cards ready for some last minute gift giving.


I started cutting papers to make a card and then inked my chosen chipboard pieces with Distress Oxide ink.

 I inked the edges of the chipboards to give a dimension - this is easy to do with a juicy ink pad or foam dauber.

While they were drying I started embellishing.... 

Here's  a few close ups.....

Thank you for stopping by and make sure you pop over to have a look the great new chipboards and stencils at the SCRAPMATTS online store. 

Until next time,

 Happy scrapping xx

Its getting Chilly!!!

Hello and Welcome 

Well its finally getting a little chilly here in Brisbane, and this makes me very happy.

Cooler weather is perfect to not only get into the craft room, also to get outdoors.  I know I'm possibly a little weird when it comes to this sort of thinking, however I just love the smell of all the dewy freshness.  

With that in mind I thought why not scrap some photos that are out doors.  First up I have a pic that was taken of my daughter whilst we were visiting family.  This was taken down near Margaret River in WA.....love this place.... so many beautiful things to see, eat and drink.  If you've yet to visit put it on your bucket list.

I went minimalist on my pages this month, I think its important to show all scrapbookers no matter what your budget you can create with as much or as little as you desire.  Sometimes we just need to let the photo's speak.  

My second layout is me out doing a early morning boot camp, another reason why I love early morning.  Again I have just used a lot of paper as well as some lovely chipboard.  The white mist chipboard's are probably my all time favourites as you don't need to do much.  Just a little swipe of ink around the edges and its good to go.

Scrapmatts products used:

 CB1249 Stars 04

String Circles 03


That is all from me this month, I hope you've enjoyed my projects/.

Until next time, take care Fi!
