Blue Fern Studios - Cousins are friends for Life

Hi friends!  Today I'm back with my third layout created for April for Blue Fern Studios.

 I chose two papers from the Spring Parade collection.  To treat the background, I flicked on 5 different colors of spray, letting each color dry before adding the next.  I then added some texture paste through a stencil, and when dry, I added some contrast using black ink with the Serendipity Medley stamp.


I used the larger of the two hearts from the Frilly Hearts chipboard set to ground my photo.  It's embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder.


The title piece is embossed with the new Pink Dust powder.  It's such a pretty color!


I dabbed the embellishments with a bit of gesso to blend everything together.


Below you can see a closeup of the background details.

Blue Fern Studios - Dazzling

Hello!  I'm back today with my second April share for Blue Fern Studios!

This layout features awesome paper and chipboard from the Chesterville collection.  Oh how I love this paper!  I decided to make a girly, yet funky, page with it.  I treated the background with five colors of spray, a layer of modeling paste through a stencil, and some random stamping with a stamp from the Forever stamp set.


That cool abstract chipboard piece behind the photo is called Chesterville Doodle.  I embossed it with 14 Karat embossing powder.


This time I treated the flowers with a few drops of white spray.


Since I was going for a girly yet funky, grungy look, I added some lace and some burlap between the paper layers.


The Dazzling title piece from the Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling chipboard set was treated with 2 layers of Ebony embossing powder.


One more detail shot!

Blue Fern Studios - Everyday Moments

Hi, blog friends!  It's time to start sharing my April layouts for Blue Fern Studios!

This layout was made with the new Spring Parade collection.  I treated the background with 4 colors of spray and modeling paste through a stencil.  When dry, I added contrast with black ink and one of the Coarse Fabrics stamps.  Then I decided to randomly stamp the Forever stamp all over the page, sometimes horizontal and sometimes vertical.  I like the effect!


The title chipboard piece, Everyday Moments, is treated with two layers of Ebony embossing powder.


Oh this Beaded Flourish chipboard piece is really beautiful!  I chose the Icicle embossing powder for it.  It's a lovely color for such a lovely piece.


 I also embossed some Turkish Bits chipboard pieces in Icicle powder.


All flowers were treated with dabs of gesso :)

Cute - Blue Fern Studios

Hi blog friends!  I'm up on the Blue Fern Studios blog with another Spring Parade collection layout.  The colors in this collection are just so pretty! I hope you will consider getting some for yourself.

I chose the Spring Parade - Sunday Best paper for this layout.  I love the floral spray at the top and the cute little bunny on the bottom! To create my background, I used a few different colors of sprays, a stamp from the Forever stamp set, and the Tattered Harlequin stamp.


I embossed the Floral Clock and Cute chipboard pieces with Oatmeal embossing powder.  This color is wonderful!




I used several flowers to embellish my layout: Chesterville Blooms, Soft Blossoms, Spring Peony and Berries, Spring Florals, and a few others from my stash.

Perfect - Blue Fern Studios

I'm here today with my second Blue Fern Studios layout for March using the new Spring Parade collection. This one is Easter-themed! 


I could not resist the Spring Parade June paper!  This paper is so very pretty.  I love the lace print border, the sweet flowers and in the bottom left corner... the Easter egg.  I added just a bit of color to the focal point area of the paper with 3 shades of purple and pink spray.  I topped that with a thin layer of modeling paste through a stencil.


I used three layers of the Spring Parade May Vignettes paper to mat my photo.


The chipboard piece behind my photo is from the Circle Groups set.  There are 5 pieces in that set, so it can be used on several projects!  I embossed it with Imagine Ink Lavender Eggs embossing powder.  It's so sparkly in person!


I was inspired by the colorful Easter eggs in my photo to add several colors of flowers to the page.  I tucked in one of the new Fancy Eggs chipboard pieces which I heat embossed with Imagine Ink Cotton Candy embossing powder.


I also used the Cotton Candy embossing powder on my title piece, which is from the Perfect, Adorable, Special chipboard set.
