January inspiration by Vera Shelemekh

Hey Blue Fern Studios fans! Vera Shelemekh is here for another wonderful creative term :)
Let me write a couple of words about myself for those who has recently joined the blog.

I'm Russian living and working in Moscow - the capital city. I'm a big fan of scrapbooking, papercrafting and quilting. I can't imagine my crafty space without paper and scissors.
Almost all of my layouts are telling stories about my family which consists of two young men: my 6 year old son and my hubby.

Scrapbooking is not only my hobby. It is my job and my lifestyle. I own a small shop on Etsy and occasionally teach people papercrafting.

Last year I started to make my Wedding album with amazing Blue Fern Studios papers and embelishments but I feel like I need more layouts to achieve the goal. So today I will share some new wedding layouts with Remnants papers and printed chipboards.
The first one is experimental as I've never made layouts with huge photos.
I've taken Remnants - Devonshire for the background and embelished it with Remnants printed chipboards, the fence covered with Antique gold embossing powder and leaves covered with Lime and Aocado embossing powder.



 With some Meadow seedlings, Apricot and Heartland blossoms and Lace the layout looks full of tender feelings.

The other layout is more brutal, One of the photo locations was a brick wall so I tried to imitate the pattern on the background with the help of Essental Textures stamp and the new Ivory Embossing powder.


 
To the background I also added butterflies with the Stamp - Garden Frolic
 

 Chipboard butterflies are covered with Soot glitter and Iridescent Grey and Icicle embossing powders

I switched my attention to the amazing Heartland collection which I love with all of my heart. 
Heartland - Bicycle for Two and  Red Rose Ball as background and for fussy cutting.



And the Angel is cut from Heartland Love notes. I covered hearts and  vine chipies with the mix of lime and avocado embossing powder. I also added some Mauve seedlings here and there and bits of Lace 3
 And of course you have noticed the Fresh florals.
