Hello all you friends of Blue Fern Studios.!
We have already reached the end of March and it's my turn to share a few of my projects
showcasing some BFS awesomeness :-)
I have used lots of chipboards to make three very different pages and also used
three different paper collections.
Hope you like it!!
My first one is with a photo of my dear sister snuggling one of our small nephews.
I used one of my absolute favourite sheets from the Sanctuary collection.
Below is a close up of the painted 'Flutter page dangle' with some added glass beads for texture.
And here you see some leftover bits from thelarge chicken wire panel as a goldpainted accent.
Lots of stamping, painting and misting on the background here and a fun paper rolling technique.
(I used the Flutter Page Dangle, Arrow Words, Graduated Squares, Layering Stems,
My second page uses the recently released Love Story collection together with a varied selection of Blue Fern Studios chipboards.
I painted my chipboards using a red colour. Once dry it turned out much darker than I had expected so I used some gesso to tone it down a few notches. Aftercreating a photo mat with some layers of different pp's I used one of the stamps around the edge of the top layer. Then lastly I glued down the painted frame on top.
I cut out the word 'Sweet' from one of the patterned papers.
(For this page I used: Floral Medley Frame, Fancy Birdcage, Love Story paper collection, and the Love Story Stamps Forever set)
And finally a page using one of the stunningly beautiful papers from the Ombre Dreams collection.
Each and every one of those patterned papers inspire me immensly!
This paper has a blue and purple background that is very helpful if you want to do some mixed media work on top. The work is half done for you so to speak:-) I used some of the new stamps from the Love Story collection here as well. I used them around the edges and in the center. Stamps are
perfect for creating a beautiful setting for your photo.
I painted the chipboard pieces yellow here to match my DD's jacket.
I used the top of a glue stick to stamp the round shapes and filled them in rather haphazardly with some more of the yellow acrylic paint.
Below you get a closer look at how I used the stamps.
(For this page I used: Love Story Stamps set one, Love Story Stamps set two, Manor Hinges,
Ombre Dreams paper collection, Arrow words set)
Thanks for looking !
