Mixed Media Tags using Bird Waltz

 Hello!  I have been wanting to create with Bird Waltz collection but the designs and colors are so beautiful I didn't know how to cut the papers!!!  So I decided to create 3 mixed media tags using this collection!

I started with Bird Waltz paper,  then used White Crackle texture paste thru a stencil then I used a stamp from Opulent Chandier Stamp collection to add to the background.  

I used some fiber and Blue Fern Studios Lace 51 and Lace 26 then added a couple diecut tags,  doilies and leaves using Bird Waltz paper for these diecuts.  I also did some fussy cutting,  one of the roses from the paper collection.  For more texture and dimension I added cheesecloth,  Blue Fern Studios Seedlings-Gold Nugget and also Blue Fern Studios Glitter-Sailor's Delight.  and from my stash I added a few brown sequins.
I heat embossed the Blue Fern Studios chipboard with Taupe and I also used the sentiment stamp from Affectionately Yours
The same process for the other 2 tags are similar to the first tag.  

I used Blue Fern Studios Crimson Blossoms for all 3 tags they were the perfect pop of color 
I needed to tie in the colors from the Bird Waltz paper collection!

I also used Blue Fern Studios Bird Waltz Ephemera diecut cardstock Butterfly on this tag!
I Love Butterflies so this Ephemera diecut was perfect!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you today to create something beautiful using Blue Fern Studios Bird Waltz collection!

Key to My Heart Scrapbook Layout

 Have you had a chance to create with the New Passages collection from Blue Fern Studios?  It is so fun and the designs and colors are so Gorgeous!

I created a 12x12 layout *Key to My Heart*.

I began doing lots of diecutting for all my elements and layers for this layout!
Then I did some tearing for my background design.  

I painted Blue Fern Studios *Key to My Heart*and the chipboard for my photo matting with Heavy body acrylic paint.  

I also used Blue Fern Studios lace for texture behind my layers.  I created flowers with my floral dies then added a few buttons!
I love adding Blue Fern Studios Seedlings and glitter for added interest to my projects!

I hope I've inspired you to make use of your metal dies to create layers!
The Passages collection is so Fun and versatile!
Thank you for stopping by!

 Passages Traveler's Notebook

With each of Michelle Singh's new collections for Blue Fern Studios, I have a new favorite!  The Passages collection was perfect for a traveler's notebook size journal.

 The colors of the collection include my favorites, 

pink and soft teal.  Just gorgeous! 

The ephemera from the ephemera packs and the journal cards were just the right size for the traveler's notebook dimensions of 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches giving me lots of options for embellishing!

As always, the Blue Fern paper folds without cracking and is a dream to work with!  I have so many ideas I can't wait to make another project with the Passages collection!

  Visit me on my YouTube channel for the series of videos of the making of the journal that you can follow along with. 

Here is the link for the "final flip through" video:

Crazy Cousins

Hi there! I have a layout today which took me a little outside of my comfort zone. I went with a bunch of colors for this zany photo I took of my grandkids a few years ago.

I used the Happy Accident 2 paper line from Blue Fern Studios.
I used the large Circle Panel chipboard and cut a strip of circles from it. I used a variety of embossing powders and heat embossed them on then followed it with some random stamping with the Tattered Newsprint stamp. I used some seedlings in Meadow  and Pink Topaz inside the circles to add more fun to the page.
I used some of the Printed chipboard that came with this line. Amusing was the perfect word to describe the photo. I also used a frame from the printed chipboard and used it behind my photo.
I used 49 & Market blooms in Tutti Frutti which were the perfect match for the embossing colors I used.
The chipboard title Crazy Cousins was absolutely perfect for this photo which showcases the crazy cousins in our family. I love how Blue Fern has so many awesome titles to choose from!
I used the Scripted Medley stamp to add some extra interest on my background.
You can see the printed chipboard frame here as well as some extra texture on my background achieved by using tissue paper, drywall tape and a stencil to add extra texture to my background. 

Have an awesome day!

Every Moment Matters Scrapbook Layout using Remnants collection

Hey Blue Fern Fans it's Phyllis again with a 12x12 scrapbook layout!  I used papers from the beautiful Remnants collection!  

I did alittle of everything on this layout from diecutting,  mixed media,  stenciling,  heat embossing and fussing cutting.

I gave the background sheet a nice coat of clear gesso then I used white sand texture paste thru a stencil and sprinkled embossing powders Taupe & Goldilocks in various around the white sand.  I heat embossed it and then added touches of acrylic paint in a dark lavender to give it some depth. 

I glued the different sizes of flowers together and I also did some fussy cutting of a flower.
I used some cheesecloth and then started to play with my design.

I heat embossed the Daisy Oval Frame with Goldilocks and Nutmeg.  

I added a Butterfly and Every Moment Matters from the chipboard sticker sheet,  I love these they add a nice dimension to your project!
I also added some of Blue Fern Studios Flowers for a pop of color!  
I added some Gold beads to the diecut flowers and added sprinkles of Mauve and Golden Nugget seedlings,  small & large sequins and art stones along my design,  these are some of my favorite finishing touches I love to add to any project!

To complete this layout I did some flicks of white acrylic paint around the entire layout.
