Blue Fern Studios - February Projects

 Hello Blue Fern Studios friends. 
It's Lydia here today showing you my 3 projects for February. 
So excited to be using the soon to be released Chesterville Collection. The first 2 layouts are made withe that and the third with the Serendipity Collection. Here goes!

Capture the Moment


For my back ground work I started off with using the Postal Textures Stamp and Antique Gold Embossing Powder to create some interest. After that I followed with a stencil and paste. 
The Swirly Doodle and Swirly Circle Chipboard pieces I embossed with Black Sand BFS Embossing Powder and the Roman Clock Set and Captured Words with Copper BFS Embossing Powder.

Once I had all the preparations done it was time to start layering. Adding Late Winter Lilies and other embellishments to get the layout together. Some finishing touches with some mists and ink splatters and we're done with the first one.

For my second layout with the Chestervile collection I used another picture from our trip to the Grand Canyon. The mountains fit perfectly with the colors of these papers. To make things pop I decided to go with a contrasting color. I had my eye on the gorgeous Peacock BFS Embossing Powder for the Manchester Frame. Working my way back to all the other accents with that.


For my background I used the stamp and embossing technique again. Going with the Scratched stamp and Antique Gold BFS Embossing Powder. Followed by a stencil and paste, some misting and ink splatters. 


The Notebook Edges chipboard piece I embossed with Black Sand BFS Embossing Powder. The Seasonal Wild Flowers and Journey, Explore, Discover chipboard pieces with Oatmeal BFS Embossing Powder. Adding Autumn Glitter to the tips. With this all prepared I cut some pieces of paper from the Chester and Holmes papers to create some layers adding the chipboard pieces and Dark Tropic Lilies and other embellishments to finish of the layout. A final touch of ink splatters and we're done.

Memories Captures


For my last layout this month I chose the brighter color scheme of the Serendipity Collection. Getting ready for Spring this part of the world. 


For the back ground I started with stamping around the page with a combination of stamps, Postal Textures, Christmas Collage & Shabby Edges. Followed by a stencil using an assortment of pastes. The gorgeous Janie's Frame chipboard piece was embossed with Oatmeal BFS Embossing Powder. After it was done I cut it through half to position on either side of the page. 


I fuzzy cut some pieces from the Merriment sheet to use on the layout and several butterflies. Assembling it all I used an assortment of BFS Flowers : Dark Tropc Lilies, Soft Blossoms & Courtship Roses. Adding some final touches with some Burnt Copper & Sunshine Glitter for a bit of extra sparkle and we're done.
