March projects from Bente.

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, 
Sanctuary collection) 

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)
