April inspirations with Jelissa

Hi there Blue Fern fans, so happy to be back here to share some creations with you. 

"She Wanted to Fly"

I wanted to make something with the chippies from "Spread Your Wings" so that was how this layout came about. 

I used a piece from Manor Hinges and sprinkled embossing powder in both bronze and turquoise randomly. The turquoise gave a very nice burnished metal effect. 

For the wings, I applied some texture paste using a peacock feather mask which I had used throughout in my background. This was followed by some shimmery paint and I used turquoise glitter on the edges of the feathers for an oomph. For the Page Chains, I did some simple heat embossing.

My second page is a bright one where I experimented with watercolor paper and distress stains.

"Best of Times"

I altered the chipboard to match the overall colours and mood of the layout.

A frame from the Memory Frame set, which I inked with distress ink and doubled up as a title.

The Shabby Brick bits, which is perfect for background and layering. I patted three different coloured Texturez from Shimmerz on it randomly.

The Berry Stems which I left bare, only to accent the berries with some Texturez.

My last share is the sketch created for Blue Fern Studios' April challenge, using the Blue Fern Garden collection.

I have a video tutorial as well showing how I put together this page and how I altered the chipboards.
