January Projects with Bec - with video tutorial

Hi, I'm so excited to bring you my first DT post for Blue Fern Studios. 

Here is a little bit about myself

Hi, I’m Bec. I'm originally from New Zealand but I now live in Brisbane Australia with my Husband and Daughter. During the week I work as a Chemist, but every other spare minute I spend in my craft space.
I started scrapbooking after my Daughter was born in 2006 and I have just become more obsessed every year. In the last couple of years I have found mixed media scrapbooking and that has become my new passion. I also love to make altered art creations, canvases and card/tags. My scrap style is girly, I have to add flowers and pearls to everything 
I’m very grateful to be on some wonderful design teams and get to spend my weekend doing what I love. 
Joining the Blue Fern Studio team and creating with their amazing products is a dream come true :)

You can find me on:

To start off this month I even have a video tutorial for you, this is a layout using the Love Story Collection.

Next up I have a layout created using the January Sketch

Here is this months sketch, there is still lots of time to get your entries in for this.

I used the Autumn Anthology collection for this layout.  
I started the layout by using the Stamps Weathered Doilies and Brocade Texture with embossing ink and the embossing powders in Honey and Bonny Blue.  

I added my colour with mists and then some modelling paste through a stencil to give the background more texture. 

The chipboard pieces Flutter Medley and Arrow Word are coloured with the embossing powders - Bonny Blue, Petal, Oatmeal and Honey. I coloured the Floral Lattice pieces with peach mica powder.

I cut several pieces of the Autumn Anthology paper to layer under my photo, I distressed all the edges and added brown ink to give a shabby look.
