Happy New Year, friends!
I love the new beginnings that come along with a new year. Today is my debut on the Blue Fern Studios design team, and I am so excited!
My first share is this layout featuring the Vintage Christmas collection.
This is my daughter on Christmas day in 2015. She looks so joyful in the photo, so I felt that the "It's a Holly Jolly Christmas" chipboard piece was a great match. I heat embossed it with Antique Gold embossing powder.
I used the same embossing powder on some of the Turkish Bits chipboard pieces, and I tucked them in behind my flower clusters.
I have a tremendous love for flowers, so I love to use them in clusters on my projects. I used a handful of the Christmas Blooms and Soft Blossoms, which I supplemented with a few additional flowers from my stash.
The flowers all have a subtle touch of gesso dabbed on to soften up the look. Below you can get a pretty good luck at one of my favorite Blue Fern stamps which I used with black ink on my background. It's from the Forever set, and it adds awesome detail to the background.
