Parts & Pieces w/Erin Blegen

Hello Blue Fern Studios friends! Erin Blegen here today with my last two projects for the month, showing you how to use up some of your bits and pieces for those who like to piece apart your chipboard to make the most of it. We all like our product to go a little further!

For both projects, I've used 7 Dots Studio products as we continue our month-long swap with them. What fun it has been combining them with Blue Fern chipboard!

First up, I have a canvas to share:

"Grown Up"
I had two pieces remaining from the Doily Bunting and Page Chains sets. I made them a part of my mixed media background by applying gesso, tape, and embossing powder over top of them.

Products Used:

Page Chains

Doily Bunting

(7 Dots Studio Products Used: "Messy Head" Collection paper and Elements, "All I Ever" Collection paper and Stickers, "9th Wave" Collection paper, and "Hopefully" Collection Stickers)

Next up, I have a very girly tag :)
"Love Happens!" Tag
For this tag, I took the top section of the Princess Window and one of the Heart Set pieces. 

I simply painted the heart piece with gesso to accent the title of my tag. The window piece was primed with gesso before being traced with glossy accents. While the glossy accents was still wet, I sprinkled on broken glass glitter, star sequins, and microbeads. 

Products Used:

Princess Window

Heart Set

See you soon :)
