November projects with Kerryn Lawson

Hello!  Kerryn here today to share how I have used some of my favourite Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces.

First up today is a mini canvas.  This cutie is about 2 1/2" square and was the perfect size for one of the pieces from the Bits of Honey set.

After the Bits of Honey piece had been adhered to the canvas both the canvas and the chipboard were primed with gesso then it was a case of building layers with different shades of blue/green mists.  By spraying the mists at different heights and with different hand movements you can still achieve a fun range of colour despite the small canvas size.

Two pieces from the 2 Hearts set were layered together and given a similar treatment but this time with pink/peach mists.  To finish the very ends of the wings were teased apart to add dimension with gauze added underneath for even more texture.

The second project I would like to share today is a card featuring a gorgeous Brigitte butterfly. 

The base for the butterfly was a Circle motif which was primed with gesso and painted off white to better match the papers I had chosen.  The butterfly was painted in shades of pink and orange, pulled from the background paper.  After being primed with gesso the butterfly was coated with Shimmerz paint in Marigold before a combination of pink and orange gelatos were blended over the top to add graduated colour.
