Hello Blue Fern Studios Fans! Phyllis here to share my last layout for Fan of the Month. I created a layout using the Amber & Apricot collection. So Gorgeous! I love colors of fall.
First off I started with Amber & Apricot's Joyful paper and cut off the edges then did some distressing. I added Amber & Apricot's Faded Blooms paper for my backing. I love how the brownish tan and beautiful design looks behind Joyful paper. I also distressed the edges. I used Birdsong and tore around the birds and a portion of the paper for my design. Then I used the other side of Birdsong for some contrast and tore some more paper.
I added texture paste through a stencil, and then added Blue Fern Studios Blood Orange embossing powder. It was exactly what I was hoping for, just enough glitter and color. I also used the Blue Fern Studios Crackle & Grunge Grid Stamps for more texture.
For layering I added Blue Fern Studios flowers and chipboard - Apricot Blooms, Wanderlust Lilies, Fern Leaves, Manchester Frame and Roman Clock chipboard pieces. I added Blue Fern Studios embossing powders Avocado and Chili powder to the Manchester Frame, and then added some Blood Orange to it. For the Roman Clock I used Blue Fern Studios Chili Powder. I painted the Fern Leaves chipboard pieces with gold acrylic paint. For the last part of creating my layout I added some Blue Fern Studios Twig & Mustard Seedlings. For the title I used the Amber & Apricot Sticker Chipboard piece, How Sweet it is to be Loved by you.
