June Inspirations by Yuko

Today is my turn!
I would like to introduce three of my projects in June.

<Sweet as Honey>
I used Blue Fern Studios' HOME SPUN collection.
This collection is too cute and easy to use!

I used embossed powder named HONEY for the title.
Before melting it really looks like honey
It is a powder with a little orangeish color
Melt and into a gold like this.
There are many kinds in the same gold though
HONEY is like gold that is close to orange.

Chipboard   sweet as honey
Printed Chipboard   Homespun
Flower    Fresh Florals/Apricot Blooms


I used a nostalgic Blush collection here.
Recently there are many cool paper images
I want you to put out such an elegant one again!

I cut out many patterns of paper and pasted it with a height difference.

I attached a glitter (marine) to the leaves pulled out with the die.

Textured with modeling paste on top
I scattered seedlings (winter green) and put it.

Seedlings include mats, metal, things with transparency etc.
There are various kinds.

This is a type with a sense of transparency.
There is a transparent feeling and it is beautiful !

A Trio of Tattered Walls - Megan Gourlay

Hi Everyone :)

Today as the title says, I have three layouts to share with you using the new Tattered Walls Collection.  This collection is fabulously versatile to use!

I played with some mixed media colours in the background of The Carport patterned paper, and a little random stamping before adding my embellishments and photo.  For my title I used one of the pieces from the new Ephemera packs - Sweet - and trimmed off the word Moment from the chipboard phrase Love This Moment.

To colour my chipboard I embossed the Glam Frame with Snow embossing powder, and the Honey Bits pieces with Sparkling Navy embossing powder.  I wanted the Glam Frame to surround my photo in the background but it wasn't quite large enough, so I simply cut it into four pieces, so that it just pokes out, and doesn't over take the photo.

Some sprinkles of Lavender Seedlings here and there, completed the page.

My second layout uses The Garage piece of patterned paper.  In the design of this paper there is a seam down the page and I used this as my starting point.

The background this time is very simple, just random stamping with archival ink using a couple of different stamps.

My title is taken from two different pieces.  The left over piece from the previous layout - Love This - and from the 2 piece pack of Family Memories, I took the word Memories and trimmed off the S.  Both pieces were then covered in  Glitter.  To make the word Memorie stand out more I inked the top half in black archival ink.

A couple of tags and photo frames from the Ephemera pack popped out the side and some twine threaded through, layered with chipboard pieces added further dimension and interest.

Chipboard this time was either glittered with Blue Ice Glitter, embossed with Sparkling Navy, or coloured with rust pastes to mimic the colours in the paper.

Some of the lovely Wanderlust Lillies - Im so addicted to these beautiful flowers! - and some more seedlings sprinkled over the page, finished it off.

My final layout today uses the The Maids Room and the B side of Apartment B ;)  You can see three layers of paper but there is only two pieces used, I just used the back and front of The Maids Room. I really didn't want to detract from the beautiful floral graphic, so there is no stamping, mixed media or seedlings on this layout.

I even used chipboard from a previous collection, and fussy cut the floral clock cluster from the packaging, tucking it into my ripped layers.

Theres those beautiful Lillies again ;)  The chipboard this time is roughly painted and then inked around the edges.  The little flourish was trimmed off one of the hearts in the Eclectic Hearts pack.

In between the layers of paper I popped some distressed muslin and some of the beautiful BFS lace.

June inspiration by Jennifer Jacques

Hello Blue Fern fans!
Jennifer here for June inspirations.
2 layouts with the new Tattered walls collection and another one with previous release.

So, I will start today with a layout about my brother's first Spartan Race.  

I've start this layout by simply add some ink through a stencil on my background, 
which is The maid's room
Used a lot of new assorted ephemeras to built my focus point.
Numbers are cut out from In the garage paper.

Then' I've finish this first layout bu adding some flowers from my own stash, flairs, enamel dots and some dimensional black paint drops.

Really love that Blue Fern Studios now have ephemeras to complete our layouts :)

Papers: Collection Tattered walls
-The maid's room (b-side)
-numbers cuts from In the garage
and ephemera

-mini frame

For my second layout, it was also the Tattered Walls collection that have inspired me.  And my boyfriend gave me a challenge: using a Cercei's picture from Games of Thrones.

So let's start with it!

Here I've start with clear gesso on my background paper: Powder room (b-side)
Then, some sprays to add watercolors, some modeling paste with a stencil and some random stamping with differents Blue Fern Studios stamps.  Above, you can easily see the Tattered Newsprint stamp.  Under, Penned flourishes stamp.

You can see  an Opulence and Elegant Flourish chipboards, 
embossed with the new Sparkling navy embossing powder.
I'm glad that the Spring Peony matches my layout this well.  They surrounded my picture very nicely.

Spring blooms and a summer bloom complete my flowers clusterings.

Here again, ephemeras helped me a lot to build my focus point.
Finish with my usual paint splatters and that was it!

Finally, with the only Déjà Vu paper that I had in my stash:  Lustre :)

Here again, clear gesso, pearl modeling paste through a stencil.  
I have painted all my frame chipboards 
(Glam frame, Embellished frame, and one from Classic Mini frames set)
in white and then stamped with an Halftone stamp on them.

For my title, I used 2 different embossing powdersSparkling navy and then, Lavender eggs.

A few Blue Fern Studios flowers here and there mixed with some others from my stash.

Above, the white one from Spring blooms
Under, the yellow one from Fresh florals, same as under my title :)

Really love how it goes all together :)

Joanne Bain - June Inspiration

Hi Everyone!!

Joanne here with you today sharing some projects created with the gorgeous new Tattered Walls Collection. This collection is amazing!! I love the rich colours and textures of the papers in this collection.


This layout was inspired by the rusty stains of the patterned paper. I really loved the colour and texture of this paper and found it perfect to create a page for my little man.

To create my main cluster I used quiet a few pieces of Blue Fern chipboard. The background started with the honeycomb bits chipboard. All of the chipboard and flower were coloured with rust paste to give that old rustic feel to my page.

I fussy cut the leaves from the Reading Room patterned paper and layered in between the flower and chipboard layers. The colour of the leaves perfectly complimented my page.

To add extra texture to my page I added some cotton thread, frayed cheese cloth and some plastic mesh from an old onion bag.

To finish off my page I added a sprinkling of Poppy and Twig seedlings.

For my next project I chose to work with The Garage patterned paper. The blue colouring of this paper is gorgeous!

'This Moment'

This page has been created using many layers of chipboard and is super dimensional. The stars were covered with glue and Black Ice glitter applied. 

To create a bit of a grungy feel i once again coated a lot of the chipboard and flowers with rust paste.

The title chipboard was left natural as it was already a deep tan colour and complimented the page well. I have cut the This Moment part off of the title chipboard piece.

To create added texture i have added natural Jute string and cotton thread.

To finish off the page I have once again added a sprinkling of seedlings.
