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.
