Blue Fern Studios - Delightful

Hello!

Dropping by today to share another page created for Blue Fern Studios. I went back to my traditional love of a white background and created my own watercolour background to blend with fussy cut pieces from the Amber & Apricot collection.

'Delightful'


I think it has a very fresh and crisp feel to it. leaves and flowers were fussy cut from the Flora and Friendship papers from the Amber & Apricot collection. I am not a big fan of Apricot as a colour but I do like how this turned out.


The Blue Fern Shabby Brick Bits and Techno Square chipboard were embossed with Dark Chocolate embossing powder and I then added a sprinkling of Russet glitter. This turned out beautifully, it looks so pretty when the light catches the colours and they really standout on the white background.

The fancy square frame behind the photo was embossed with Green Ivory embossing powder and then a sprinkling of Solar Flare glitter was added. This colour is amazing, its so bright and vibrant.


The fussy cut paper pieces were layered in amongst the apricot blooms and chipboard. By doing this it helps to create detail and dimension. To add a soft texture to the page I added a little natural cheesecloth fabric.

Blue Fern Studios - Forever

Hello!

Quick post to share a layout created for Blue Fern Studios. This layout was created with the absolutely gorgeous Wanderlust collection. I simply love the wash of colours in this collection. They have such a summery beachy feel to them.

'Forever'


For the base of my layout I chose to use the Seascape patterened paper from the Wanderlust collection. To create my main cluster I started with Blue Fern chippy Hexagon Bits and build up from there. All chipboard was painted with white gesso and then coloured with watercolour.


I then went about layering lots of Blue Fern lillies and blooms. The white blooms from the Apricot Blooms set were watercoloured with my chosen colours to blend with my page theme. The Wanderlust Lillies were left as they were and as you can see they are beautiful. The larger cream blooms from the Chesterville set were also watercoloured and pulled apart to from the back matting behind my photo.


I added some torn cheesecloth for added softness and texture for the page. The cheesecloth was also watercoloured to blend with the theme of my page.


For added texture and to help give a little more of a beachy feel Gold Nugget Seedlings and art stones were added.

Blue Fern Studios - Happy Together

Hello!!

Dropping in today to share another page I created for Blue Fern Studios once again using their new Remnants collection. 

So my page today was created using the B side of the Callaway patterned paper and a strip from the Devonshire patterned paper. I cannot express how much I love the colouring of the Devonshire paper. it is just so pretty.

'Happy Together'


The main cluster was created using the Roman Clocks - Small chipboard set. I also added one of the chipboard dangles from the Romantic Page Dangles set.


Some parts of the chipboard was embossed with Ivory embossing powder once again along with chalk ink. The title is from the Remnants Printed chipboard set and has again been altered with chalk ink to give it a softer colouring.


For added interest I added a couple of flowers from the Wonderlust Lillies set. Cotton thread was added and then a sprinkling of Meadow Seedlings to the background.
