Blue Fern in Classic and Modern Styles

Hello dear scrappy friends! 
Svetlana Austin here with my June projects. 
This post is my last one as a design team member for this amazing company. 
It was such a big honor for me to serve this term on the very first design team 
together with so many amazingly talented ladies. 
But I am surely not saying good bye to any of them or to all the pretty chipboard pieces from BFS. 
I will be more than happy to continue using it in my projects.
Now let's see what I have for you today.

My first projects is an altered vinyl record.
Here I used the gorgeous Floral Clock chipboard piece. 
It is no surprise that this beautiful design so quickly became very popular with so many of you.

To "dress up" the clock I painted it roughly with gesso leaving some areas raw. 
Then I stamped it lightly and rubbed some areas with blue liquid pearls.

My next project is a decorated wooden canvas with mixed media touches.
It is very bright and really happy looking. 
It is quite small in size - only 8'' by 8''.

Most of the time I start with a layer of gesso on my chipboard pieces. 
Here I added a little bit of yellow paint patches on the title word and the Damask Flourish, which I cut in two pieces. I also applied liquid pearls to the Damask Flourish for extra color and shimmer.

I will finish off with a layout in a completely different style.
I made a very bright and modern double pager using some little chipboard pieces from Widgets and Urban Acronyms packs.

Here you can see one of the layouts a bit closer.

Some of the chipboard pieces I painted with acrylic dubber paint and some I left raw.
