Hi there!! I am Kelly Foster, and I am so happy to introduce myself to you and be able to call myself a design team member here at Blue Fern Studios!! A big HUGE thank you to Leslie, for having me here on the team!!
A little bit about me...
Well, I am 26 years old, and I am from the lovely/cold state of Minnesota (USA). I have been scrapbooking for just over two years, I was inspired to begin shortly after the birth of my oldest daughter, Lilah (2.5 years old). I have two daughters, my youngest being Paisley (9 months old).
These two do keep me on my toes, and quite busy, but I do make some "me time" most days for my crafting. I also enjoy sewing, and I love to cook and bake, but scrapbooking comes first for my hobbies, for sure!
As for my "style" I am not sure...I love to use interesting colors, add lots of layers and different mediums, I love experimenting with mixed media and a little bit of messiness. I don't care too much for precision so you will see lots of torn edges and distressing, my style can be quite free spirited. I basically just start with a pile of paper and see where it takes me, based on my mood for the day! Sometimes it comes out all grunged out and sometimes you will see more of the super feminine floral look! You can see more of my work on my blog: http://scrappin-sisters.blogspot.com.
Enough talk, let me share my first layout with you featuring a few favorite pieces of Blue Fern chipboard:
I kept the chipboard pieces pretty simple, to make them stand out against the busy and bright back drop..The Hearts and Royal Border were simply painted with gesso, and I liked the look of the stark white against all of the bright colors of my page.
The Heart below had also been painted with gesso, then was colored with Faber Castell Gelatos in various colors. I then added a few swipes of gesso with my fingertip, and a little chalk ink around the edges to finish it off.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you will check back often to see what the rest of our team is up to!!
