Blue Fern Projects for May

Hello Blue Fern Studios and paper friends. 

This is my last month on the Desin Team and it's been a great time. I would like to thank Blue Fern Studios for giving me this wonderful opportunity and their great support. 

For this month I have made a canvas and 2 layouts. 
For the canvas I used the Happy Accident  Collection and for the 2 layouts the brand new beautiful Garden Life Collection

Let's get started!


I started of with painting the sides of the canvas with some acrylic, with a second dry-brush coat in blue. Once this was dry I used the Tattered News Print Stamp randomly for some effect. 
The front of the canvas I covered with Happy Accident : Fluke with on top a smaller piece from the same sheet, distressed at the edges. Again I used the Tattered News Print Stamp for some details around the canvas and used a stencil with Graphite paste to create texture.

The Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces Stick Stacks are embossed with Starry Night to pick up the beautiful light blue from the paper. Having done my preparations it's time to start my layers.

Happy Accident is the first collection to have it's own accompanying Printed Chipboard Shapes sheet and it makes for a wonderful way to add layers, features and titles to your projects. For my canvas I made great use of them.

Also adding ribbon, lace, netting and thread to the mix before finishing off the project with the gorgeous Chesterville Florals and Blooms.

The End of a Perfect Day

At the end of May we had a great trip to Disneyworld it had been quite a while since the last time we had been there, but no matter what age, it's always great. Even Tinkerbell joined in for fun!

For this layout I used the brand new Garden Life Collection. The Felicity page for the background and Calling Cards pieces for layering. For the background work I used the Tattered News Print and the Tattered Harlequin stamp, a stencil and mists.

The Honey Bits chipboard pieces are embossed with a mixture of a few embossing powders. Sunlight Rose, Morning Sun, Pink Dust & Copper.
The other chipboard pieces, Graduated Circles, Perfect Day, Roman Clock were first embossed with Sand & Sea with a second coat of Iridescent Grey giving it a beautiful sparkle.

Now that we have prepared all the parts it's time to put the layout together. Stacking the pieces of  embossed chipboard, Garden Life - Printed Chipboard Shapes, pieces of paper and the beautiful Blue Fern Studios flowers, Garden Florals, Harvest Lilies & Chesterville Blooms

On one of the evenings in Disneyworld we so enjoyed the fireworks. What a show they put on. The castle has this spectacular light show and with the fabulous music it's just perfect.

For this photo I chose the Garden Life : Calling Cards sheet as the base of my layout. To continue on the fireworks I used the Christmas Collage Stamp and used it with a silver ink and Antique Gold Embossing Powder. A large diamond stencil with a mixture of gold & silver paste and some white gesso to give the background texture. 

The Floral Lattice Bits were first embossed with Sand & Sea Embossing Powder and a second layer with Iridescent Grey. The Seeing Stars and Disneyworld chipboard pieces first got a Antique Gold coat with embossing powder and then a second layer with Goldenrod Glitter.

Having prepared all the pieces I postioned them on the page where I wanted them and layered everything. Adding embellishments and Blue Fern Studios flowers Spring Florals and Garden Blooms. As finishing touches I splattered a variety of mists.

ScrapBerry's - Fun & Sun Adventure

Hello Paper and ScrapBerry's friends!

During May and June we're celebrating all things Family and Kids at ScrapBerry's. Our challenge is also running this theme and the Zoe & Ziggy’s - Sailing Adventures collection is just perfect for fun kids projects.

I started with a reverse frame, distressed the edges a little with a hammer, then painted it with a base yellow color. Dry brushed with some blue and used the Butterfly set of stamps for some details on the frame. 
I used one of the sheets from the Zoe & Ziggy’s - Sailing Adventures 6x6 collection as a background. I fuzzy cut pieces from the Deep Sea Treasures and Anchors Away sheets to create a fun scene with lots of a layers.

On the edge of the frame I added Cherry Blossoms, Seaside
Metal Charms and some other fuzzy cut details to finish of the project.

Thank you so much for taking a look!
