NEW ARRIVALS!!! Heidi Swapp Memory Planners in Scrap-n-Crop.com

.
For those that have been asking and wondering why isn't Scrap-n-Crop.com into planners, Filofax ... yall' know, that sort of stuff, well, we are!
First off we had a rough patchy start with all the shipping delays (global too!) with Websters Pages ... oh yes! thank you for all those lovely people who stood by us and their pre-orders ... what can I say? You're truly amazing.
But now that that is water under the bridge, we are glad to announce the arrivals of Heidi Swapp Memory Planners in Scrap-n-Crop.com
In Heidi's words:
if you haven’t noticed, Memory Planning is a “thing”! well, ok – so I call it “Memory Planning” because recording, planning and documenting in a planner is actually a very powerful and FUN way to keep memories! It’s actually kinda like memory multi-tasking because you are doing what you would do anyway: write down the stuff you have going on… (planning) along with stuff you need to do and remember… but also adding in some pretty embellishments and photos! It’s the perfect way to CAPTURE your EVERYDAY!


Stay tuned as we gear up April with fun stuff for all the planner lovers out there!

HOT PRODUCTS!!! Montana Cans RESTOCKED ALL COLORS in Scrap-n-Crop.com


Scrap-n-Crop.com has RESTOCKED ALL THE COLOURS ... either visit us every Wednesday from 10 am to 2pm at our Scrap.Abode (warehouse) or from 3pm to 5pm on our OpenDays (weekends - dates published at the top of this blog) 






SHOCK colors
For some consumers "less is more". So to avoid being overwhelmed the Montana GOLD Shock range was developed as a mini Montana GOLD assortment with the only the most high covering colors within these color scales chosen. This system became so popular that it also extended to some of the water based Montana  ACRYLIC ink markers and refills making possible to use strong opaque colors in more mediums.  

CLASSIC colors
Back in the days before manufacturers created high opacity spray paint for the specific use of graffiti art or Urban art, there were a few "classic" colors that were the preference of many street based artists. Normally chosen for their opacity or color impact, the Montana GOLD line has adopted a special place within the color range for these historical colors.

PROCESS colors
Inspired by the CMY color properties used in the printing industry, the CMY colors are powerful colors bound to draw attention to what ever they are applied on.
FLUORESCENT colors 
Famous for being able to glow under UV light. This is no exception with the Montana GOLD Fluorescent range. For best results we recommend fluorescent colors to be applied to pre-primed, dry white surfaces (e.g. Shock White i.e.). This will increase luminosity and improve coverage. Applying Montana GOLD clear coats will offer greater UV protection however may hinder the fluorescent effect slightly. In general fluorescent colors are less lightfast and not resistant to the elements. They are not abrasion proof like other Montana GOLD color shades.
CHROME EFFECT colors
Chrome effects are achieved by having the metallic pigment particles located on the surface of the object you are spraying. This is achieved by the lacquer remaining "open" so that light can shine and reflect off these particles. However this results in chrome effect cans being less weather resistant and not abrasion proof. Finger marks may occur if handling chrome effect sprayed items. Applying Montana GOLD clear coats make the paint appear less shiny and prevent it from reflecting light as efficiently as prior to the clear coat application. 


TRANSPARENT Black & White
Achieve greater depth and tonal variation with the use of Montana GOLD Transparent Black. Apply thinly for perfect shadows and rendering or creating complex gradient shifts by applying multiple layers. This transparent shades allow users to enhance their artwork layer by layer while controlling the opacity through the paint application. Use Transparent White to create highlights or to give the effect of light exposed areas (milky glass effect)

Not game enough to spray?
Here are some acrylic based markers that allows you to write on any surface!

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT!!!! FW Artist Ink - a great addition to our increasing numbers of calligraphers and brush scriptwriters out there


With the increasing interest in calligraphy and brush script in scrapbooking and with the planners community, we thought we should highlight that the FW Artists Ink is a great product to try out!

The colours are irresistible ... yes all 38 colours with high degree of lighfastness* to ensure your precious creations does not fade.


It's also an acrylic-based, pigmented, water-resistant ink which means in plain English it can be applied on any surface permanently.

If that's not wow enough, the inks can be substantially (that's a lot) diluted to achieve the most subtle of tones providing you with characteristics of watercolor.

Since they dry to a water-resistant film, you can add layers over them and achieve the results you want (i.e. no blending of layer of colours)

FW Artists Inks work well with airbrushes, dip pens, technical pens, and brushes. 



(Note – * Fluorescent colors are not lightfast.)
