Hi everyone!

so happy to be posting to Blue Fern Studios for the first time!

I am so honoured to be amongst so many talented designers.

First, let me introduce myself.
I live in Tokyo, Japan. Also known as mai*
 I'm married to a professional violinist and together we have 3 adorable sons,
 2 and 8 and 12years old. 
I am currently working as a piano teacher to children at home. 
I started SB from March, 2009, and it has become my favorite hobby ever since.


My first Layout for this month is..

I love this collection.
These papers are so lovely.
I cut an item off from some of paper, and combined and displayed those.

This Chipboard is "Romantic Page Dangles"and "Heart Borders".
So lovely!

This is "Eclectic Hearts".
Firstly, I painted these with an acrylic paint, next up  I have heat embossed
them using embossing paste and embossing powder"cotton candy"

Firstly,I painted these with an acrylic paint, next I colored it in blown ink,
and finally  I covered it in Glossy Accents.

I cut several pieces of the "Autumn Anthology - Mercantile "to layer under my photo, 
and  I chose several flowers and arranged with those.

 I chose this "Love" title for my layout.
This is simply painted with an acrylic paint ,white,purple and blown inks.

I cut sheet music off from "Timeless - Keepsakes" and layered that.

I used "Charmed Page Dangles".
