Montage with Patter

I am so excited to share the new Montage papers with you this month along with some of the new chipboard pieces. Let's look at what I have for you today.

A Joyful Heart
For this 8 1/2 x 11 layout, I traced one of the Graduated Squares chipboard pieces onto the Montage Bouquet paper and cut it out to use as a third square on the layout.

Also, when trimming this gorgeous 12x12 piece of Montage Fairyland paper down to 8 1/2 x 11, I unfortunately had to cut off two of the beautiful edges. But it was easily solved. I stitched the bottom piece back onto the layout. I chose to leave the right edge bare but I could have easily stitched that on also. So don't ever hesitate to cut down these papers for smaller layouts.

To treat the chipboard pieces, I painted them all in black gesso. Easy but I love the "pop" that black provides to a creation.

What a Day
For this 8 1/2 x 11 layout, I used several new pieces of Blue Fern Studios chipboardWhat a Day, Printer's Bits, and Arrow Words. I just love all of these pieces. The gorgeous papers I used are Montage Now and Then and Calling Cards.

Again, I covered most of the chipboard pieces in black gesso except the Printer's Bits (the number 20). I used gelatos to color the numbers and then covered each one in Glossy Accents.

September Sketch
Have you joined in on the September Sketch Challenge yet? If not, be sure to click here for the details and to join in the fun. Remember you can do anything with these sketches! I turn the 12x12 Blue Fern Studios sketches into 8 1/2 x 11 layouts, art journal pages, and cards. This is the card that I created using the September Sketch.
To cover the Roman Clock set chipboard, I put on a layer of gesso. Then I spritzed with three different colors of Prima Color Bloom Mists to match the Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams paper.
