Hello Crafter Friends, I'm Aida from @aidaville, it's lovely to see you back at the Blue Fern Studios Blog and hopefully the Design Team's projects have kept you inspired and creating. This week I have a Hello Dreams panel featuring a theme that will resonate with all of us.
These are the Blue Fern Studios products I used :
Wanderlust - Calling Cards | Seascape
Swan Gate Chipboard | Valerie's Butterflies Chipboard
Tattered Walls Ephemera | Flowers - Apricot Blooms.
Lace no. #2
Other supplies : 6x8 Flat Back Canvas Panel, Dye Inks, Vintage Silver Embossing Powder, Gesso, Crayons.
The faded blue woodgrain of the Wanderlust Seascape paper is a wonderful background for the Swan Gate Chipboard which was given a vintage shine with some heat embossing.
I just love the sentiment "go where your Dreams take you" ... it's what we all wish for ! The Butterfly chipboard was given just a touch of heat embossing in the center for a worn-away effect. You will see underneath it, how the large flourish from the Tattered Walls Ephemera and Lace #2 add more dimension to the panel.
Here's a closer look of the Chipboard Swan Gate and the contrasting background paper accentuates the gate even more.
Layering all the bits of ephemera and paper makes the panel look interesting and just calls out for you to touch the details.
The Butterfly perfectly anchors the panel with a shabby prettiness.
Creating this panel was so much fun, I truly enjoy layering papers and embellishments. If all this seem difficult to you, don't worry ..... a little practice and experience will make sure you get good at this.
Thank you for stopping by, stay creative !
