Hi everyone! It's Valerie today with a few layouts using the amazing new collection from Blue Fern Studios -Ombré Dreams. After I created my first two layouts, I realized a pattern. I was treating all the chipboard pieces with white paint. So I kept with that trend for all 3 layouts.
For this layout, I wanted to keep things simple and really let the photo and soft background pattern show through. I have used the Wild Flourish Bundle which was painted white. I first primed the chipboard with gesso, and then painted it with Titanium White paint. I find it gives a whiter white than just using gesso.
This paper is Leslie's Dream.
To add a little color, I brushed some orange ink on the edges, which you can see better in the close-up image below.
This image shows the glorious goodness of this paper! Aren't the details amazing?
The following 2 close ups show the Twilight Garden Frame, which I cut in half. I tucked one half to the right of the photo, and the remaining part of the frame can be seen to the left. I primed these pieces, painted them white, then stamped them with a script stamp. Instead of using black, I used a softer gray chalk ink.
I inked the Calligraphic Border with one of the same colors of distress ink that I used with a stencil.
For my third layout, it was pink all the way! I began with the Shannon's Dream paper. I chose the less patterned side of the paper because I wanted to add some book paper and lots of mist.
I used several pieces of chipboard on this layout. Initially I painted them all white, but ended up applying embossing powder to some of them. Here you can see the lamp from the Second Hand Furnishings set. I used some chunky embossing powder on this one. You can also see a piece of the Leafy Page Accents that I cut into several pieces and used throughout the layout.
Here I have used one of the Ornate Medallions, which was painted white and embossed.
In the main cluster I have used the Ornate Medallions, Doodle Flowers and Leafy Page Accents, which I have painted white. A few of them have also been heat embossed.
Once again I used gray ink and mist on this layout. I really like it instead of black on light colored layouts.
I hope you enjoy your day, and thanks for stopping by!
