A Few of my Favorite Things - By Kelly

Hi everyone!! Kelly here today. Welcome back to the Blue Fern Studios blog, so glad you stopped by!! I have been creating up a storm with Blue Fern chipboard, and am excited to share a couple of my projects with you!!
A Perfect Day

The Floral Clock was altered with multiple layers of Tattered Angels mists, gesso, Inka Gold, stamping, and white gel pen. It was all one big experiment, really, I just kept adding things until I achieved the look I wanted. I topped it off with one of the Ornate Medallions and a bit of bling.

Here I used one of the Brigitte Butterflies. I primed it with gesso, then stamped with a Prima  stamp, then inked the edges with black chalk ink. A few black rhinestones were added then to the butterfly's body.

You Look Lovely Today

The lovely Blooming Flourish piece is one of my favorites! I first primed this one with gesso, then simply doodled on it with a fine point Sharpie.

Up next, I used the pack of Nested Circles, which were also first painted with gesso, then given a bit of a golden sheen once again using the Inka Gold, a fabulous product from Viva Decor..a favorite medium for me to use on chipboard. I outlined a bit in black pen on some of them circles, as well.

Below you can see the other section of the Blooming Flourish, which I had cut in half.
