Blue Fern Studios - Sassy

Hi blog friends!   I'm here with my third Blue Fern Studios layout for this month!

Sassy

This layout features the Happy Accident - Chance paper.  I prepared the paper with a layer of clear gesso followed by modeling paste through a stencil.  Next, I added color with drops of purple, pink, black, and white sprays.  When dry, I stamped using the Tattered Harlequin stamp as well one of the Essential Textures stamps using black ink.


I embossed the Swirly Circle chipboard piece with Plum embossing powder.  I did the same on the Sassy chipboard piece, but I also added some Rusty Rose embossing powder on it here and there.  I love the beautiful effect!

Above and below, you can also see some of the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard stickers.


The below "Passion" chipboard sticker is also from the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard set.


My flower clusters include Happy Blooms and Happy Roses.

Blue Fern Studios - Together is the Best Place to be

Hello!  I'm back with my second May Blue Fern Studios design team layout.  This features the new paper collection called Happy Accident.

Together is the Best Place to be

This layout features the B side of the Happy Accident - Fluke paper.  I prepared it with a layer of clear gesso and then applied modeling paste through a stencil.  Next I added color with some drops of peach, orange, and yellow sprays. When dry, I added contrast by using black ink with the Tattered Newsprint stamp and a stamp from the Forever set.


I used Stormy Skies embossing powder on the Together is the Best Place to be chipboard piece.  Isn't it a lovely shade of blue?!  Used 14 Karat embossing powder on the Royal Heart Frame chipboard piece that you see peeking out under and around the photo.


I tucked a blue chipboard flower from the Happy Accident Printed Chipboard set into an embellishment cluster.


The flower clusters include beautiful Happy Blooms and Happy Roses.

Blue Fern Studios - This is My Life

Hi, blog friends! It's time to start sharing my May Blue Fern Studios design team layouts.  All three feature the new paper collection called Happy Accident.  I do believe this collection will be a strong favorite for a very long time! It is so wonderfully suited for mixed media, but it also stands beautifully on its own.  I hope you will get your hands on this collection, as you are sure to love it!

This is My Life

My first layout features the B side of the Happy Accident - Layering Cards paper.  I prepared it with a layer of clear gesso then a little bit of white gesso in the focal area. I added some drops of pink, peach, and orange sprays to the paper to coordinate with the flowers that I was going to add.  When dry, I used the brick stamp from the Essential Textures stamp set with black ink.


I used Copper Embossing Powder on the This is My Life chipboard piece.


  I also used the Copper Embossing Powder on a butterfly from the Royal Monarchs chipboard set.  For some beautiful contrast, I added some Pink Dust Embossing Powder to the butterfly here and there.


I used the same embossing powder treatment on the Blooming Flourishes chipboard pieces that are layered under the photo and flowers.  Above, you can see a coordinating Happy Accident Printed Chipboard Sticker peeking out on either side of the photo and another, "Inspiration", beneath the photo.

Of course, a handful of gorgeous coordinating flowers, including Happy Roses, Spring Lilies, and Harvest Lilies, were used to embellish the layout.

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.

Blue Fern Studios - Brilliant

Hi, blog friends!  It's time to start sharing my March layouts for Blue Fern Studios!  They recently released their brand new beautiful Spring Parade collection.  If you didn't have spring fever before, just wait until you get a look at the pretty pastel colors and gorgeous patterns in this collection.  They are perfect for all of your Spring and Easter projects.

Brilliant

I chose the back side of the Spring Parade Susie's Garden paper as the base of this layout.  I covered it with clear gesso so that I could apply mixed media products.  Then I added 3 shades of pink and purple spray.  It is important to let each color layer dry before adding the next color, otherwise the colors will blend together.  Next, I applied modeling paste through a stencil.  Then I used the Tattered Newsprint stamp to add detail and contrast.


I chose the Spring Parade May Vignettes paper and used both sides of it under my photo.


I used the Blooming Flourishes chipboard set under my photo.  I embossed it with the new Lavender Eggs Imagine Ink embossing powder.  Isn't it pretty?!


I used Imagine Ink 14 Karat embossing powder on the title piece from the Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling chipboard set.  I also sprinkled some gold beads here and there to coordinate with the gold title piece.


I dabbed the embellishments with a bit of heavy gesso to soften up the look.

and yes, I'm proud of my little girl for her academic accomplishment :)
