And only 6 weeks untill Christmas!
But let us first say goodbye to fall , my most favorit season.
Fall in Switzerland is so beautiful .
Lets go over to my first layout I would love to share with you.
When I start a scrapbookpage, I never know what I am going to do excactly.
I grab a picture, and choose the papers.
For this paper from the Love Story collection I had a masculine page in mind.
Well, as you see it ended up as a feminine page.
The picture I used was not that great in the start, a lot going on in the background.
But my daughter in law has beautiful eyes , so I decided to use just that part.
The chipboard piece I used is the crosshatch frame .
I first embossed it in red, but I changed my mind and dapped it random with black patina.
Here and there I left a little red peeking through .
On my background I used the glitter Phoenix , I just spread here and there on my wet gesso.
In real life it gives a great effect!
The second layout I like to share with you is light as spring .
My daughter asked for a layout with this picture.
I think it is perfect for the Ombre Dreams collection.
I made this layout after the beautiful November sketch, a design by Michele Singh.
The chipboard piece Tech panel is versatile.
I choose it to get some grunch feeling and tone down all that sweetness :)
I am a big fan of the chipboard negatives.
They give the chipboard sturdyness for shipping.
But they also give me fun and crazy shapes, I never throw them away!
Here I took out the circles from the tech panel , colored them ,
a few doodles and there you have small embellishments
The techpanel piece is just painted with silver/iron colored paint .
To match the iron my granddaughter holds her hands on in the picture.
Thank you for visiting the Blue Fern blog today and have a great weekend!
