November Projects by Melinda Thompson

Hello Blue Fern Studio Fans!

I am here with you again today to share you my 3 projects I created this month.  I had so much fun using 3 different lines of paper and lots of gorgeous chipboard and the new range of Imagine Ink Mist!

My 1st project I used papers from the Frolic Collection..Gosh I could have kept on creating with this is just devine.

I used the large Grunge Frame and cut it up and layered the strips on the base of my paper. I have painted them with Gesso to begin with then I have used Imagine Ink Mist in Sky and Winter Mint.
 For my "arch" down the bottom of my layout all I used here was an off cut of one of the circle frame chipboard and used the same process but highlighted it with Imagine Ink Mist in Jingle Bells.


I just adored the XOXO chipboard.  Again I painted it in Gesso first and then used some watered down paint to colour it.

My 2nd project I used the paper collection Paisley and Vine. Again such stunning and bright colours in this paper range.

Here I have used the Grid Pieces cut up randomly and layered over the base of my layout as well as the Deja Vu Luminaires Chippies and the word Love from the Adore, Love, Cherish word set. My chipboard pieces are covered in Gesso first and then painted on with some watered down paint.


And lastly my 3rd project I used the beautiful Autumn Anthology papers.
After I created the texture on my background which included chipboard pieces from the Techno Squares set, I used the Imagine Ink Mist in Sky and randomly sprayed the background moving it around with some added water.


I loved using the Doily Bunting chipboard in this layout. I covered it in Gesso first and them inked the edges and then blended it with the Imagine Ink Mist in Sky.

The title "Fun" came from the word set "Crazy Silly Fun" and the frame around the photo is part of the Clip Frame collection.

Thank you very much for stopping by today.  
Happy Crafting!

Melinda :)
