'Capture the Moment' by Lisa Griffith

Hello Blue Fern Studio fans! 

I was looking at my projects to share this month and I realized something funny.... I think when 
it comes to scrapping I have a split personality! On the one hand I love a light, pretty shabby page
with lots of white, but I also love a really grungy messy page with lots of torn papers
and splashes of ink. I was thinking that Blue Fern Studio chipboard is not only beautiful, 
but it is also versatile, and can be altered and used in very different styles. 
My first layout is very grungy with a vintage style.

I am not very good with titles, so I LOVE the word chipboards.
Here I have used 'Captured Words' and pieces of the 'Chickenwire Panel'
that I painted black and then covered with Glossy Accents.
I knew this was going to be a grungy look, so I altered the chipboards in a messy way.....

My next project is a tag that I made with a piece of the new Blue Fern Studios paper collection 
called 'Charlotte's Dream'. The new papers are so beautiful in real life! I got my set just in time
to make a shabby/grungy tag that I made for my mother's birthday present.

Here I used a piece from a chipboard called 'Organic Vine Corner' and also 
a piece from the 'Bohemian Butterfly' set that I embossed in white.

And my last project is a layout I created using the May Blue Fern Studios
sketch in a very romantic and shabby style.

I wanted a soft romantic look so I did a lot of masking with gesso and kept the colors very light. 
I used a Blue Fern Studios chipboard called 'Film Strips' and a piece from the 'Bohemian 
Flower' set which I kept simple with just a coat of white acrylic paint. 
The BFS paper 'In Bloom' was perfect for the base of this layout.
I also used pieces of the paper 'Calling Cards' to create my background.

There is still time to enter the Blue Fern Studio May sketch challenge!
Here is the beautiful sketch....

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today! I wanted to show that by trying out 
different techniques and colors, you can use BFS pieces to perfectly fit your style......
(Even if you have more than one!)

Until next time....
Hugs, Lisa
