Beautiful Layering with Kathleen

Welcome to week 3 with our Blue Fern Fan of the Month, Kathleen White.  The Heartland Collection creates a gorgeous base for her layout. 

Hello again!   Kathleen here with you. 

You will find I mainly scrap my family and our adventures.  So now our travels take us to the other side of the world!  This is a picture of my daughter with some Chinese students after they performed a dance at their school in rural China.   For this layout I selected the Heartland collection- Love Blooms paper as my base and Love Notes paper for my layers.

The first thing I did was to make three circles of various sizes with a clock mask and modeling paste.
Next I cut out several cards from the Love Notes paper.  I matted my picture and a couple of the note cards with white card stock.  Next I tore out a page from an old dictionary and crumpled it to create added texture to the layers.

 I love, love, love this sweet chipboard piece, don't you?  The first thing I did was cover it in a thin layer of gesso.  Then I came back and used Stormy Seas Embossing Powder on the long cutout portion of the chippie.  It sparkles so beautifully but unfortunately you just don't see it in the picture.  

I then used Pink Pearl Embossing Powder as a base coat on the bird and vine section of the chippie.  I then used a glaze medium and mixed it with a heavy dose of Pink Pearl glitter.  It goes on very thick and poufy which I adore!  I always try using things in different ways, such as glaze for gluing purposes.

 Here you see all of the height of the various layers topped off with a gorgeous chipboard piece.

 Last but certainly not least I finished off this light and airy layout with a mix of Blue Fern gorgeous blooms!
