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!
