July projects by Karolina

Hi everyone! Karolina here with with a dose of inspiration for you! So sit down comfortable and let's start!
To my works I'm using photos of myself very rarely. I don't know why, I just prefere photos of my friends, family - people I love. So today it's a very unusual day! I would like to show you three different projects, two layout and one frame with me, myself & I ;)
In all projects I used a new beautiful collection Seaside Cottage. I wasn't surprised when I saw this collection for the very first time and I completely fell in love with it. Blue and turquoise are my favourite colors and I love everything in marine style. 

Beach Babe

Ok, so first I would like to show you a round frame. As you can see, I've cut out the outline of me from the picture and tried to create a beach around me. I have used two stripes of papers, some seashells, flowers and a texture sand paste. I also added some glitter in blue shades and I've prepared some glitter caboshons. It's very easy, you need just put some glue to the bottom of the caboshon and then sprinkle a glitter on it. When it will be dry you can stick it on your projects wherever you want.
Finally I added a title - this time it's a piece from the same collection. I have used outmeal embossing powder to cover it. The last step was to make a braid with a string and metal embellishments and put it around my frame.

Papers: Glory, Embark
Chipboard: Beach Babe
Embossing powder: Oatmeal
Glitter: Gulf Coast, Blue Ice, Pyrite, Burnt Cooper
Flowers: Seaside lilies

End of a perfect day

I'm pretty sure that this is the newest photo of me. My brother's fiancĂ©e took this picture of me in the last weekend, during a dinner. If I have to be honest, we were in the Warsaw and Warsaw is not a seaside city, but woodboards behind me looked very nice and it really was a perfect end of a perfect day ;)

 I built my composition using papers, flowers and a chipboard piece in the contrasty color. I have used a melon embossing powder.

Papers: Glory, Embark, Whitewash, Regalia
Chipboard: Perfect Day
Embossing powder: Melon, Honey
Flowers: Seaside lilies

Summer Vocation

The Seaside Cottage is a perfect collection not only for your marine projects,  but also for every holiday memories. In my last layout I used photos from Aventine Hill which I made few weeks ago when I was in Rome.

Papers: Embark, Whitewash, Regalia
Chipboard: Summer Vocation
Embossing powder: Ebony
Flowers: Seaside lilies

And that's all in this month! See you soon in August!

July inspiration by Elena Volchkova

Hi everyone! Today is my day to talk about the dreams and inspiration. And it is the sea today. My new love - a collection Seaside Cottage. And the first two pages of it.

"Marine dreams" layout

In this work, it embodied gentle and romantic thoughts about the sea.. The sea always gives us great emotions, it is always waiting for us, and we look forward to seeing him ... waiting and dreaming.

The background is very complicated. I used the Embark paper as my background. And the mix of lace, twigs, beads. And paint, paint, paint!

Anticipation from "Serendipity Words 1" set was covered with Imagine Ink Lilac embossing powders.

Seaside Flourish was covered with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Petal and 14 karat, that so good together.
Flower from " Seaside Lilies" set.

To show the sun glare, I used Sunshine glitter. It's so sunny!

Seaside Flourish I cut into two parts and this piece has become accent in the corner. Colored to with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Petal and 14 karat.

Blue Fern Studios Supply List:
Paper: Seaside Cottage - Embark
Chipboard: Seaside Flourish, Ocean Mermaid, Serendipity Words 1

"Family trip" layout

In this layout there is the story of one wonderful holiday, when a little girl was vacationing on the sea. Photos preserve for us the memory and emotions. This is so wonderful! You can always go back to childhood;)
I used the Voyage paper from the Seaside Cottage Collection as my background paper. And a lot of romantic and tropical details.

These flashlights enchanted me. They are magic! I wanted to use them together, just a little bit in different shades.

Large lantern was covered with mixture of Imagine Ink embossing powders in Honey and Mystic Plum. Little is also covered with a mixture. But other shades - Petal and 14 karat Imagine Ink embossing powders.

Stamps Forever and Postal Textures helps to make an interesting background.

"Reminisce" I covered to with Imagine Ink Mystic Plum embossing powder.

In this work I use the flowers of the sets: Attic Charm Daisies, Seaside Lilies and Attic Charm Glitter Roses.

"In the Garden" layout

Layout for a girl who loves to be photographed. In this work I tried to continue flowers of pictures in the background and in the decor. I think a bush was very interesting.

Petite window secreted in the bushes behind the curtains of lace. Window was covered with Imagine Ink 14 karat embossing powders.

I used the Serendipity Medley stamp with Imagine Ink 14 karat embossing powder to create some details on my background. They are almost invisible, but they sparkle in the sun.

"Reminisce" I covered to with Imagine Ink Mystic Plum embossing powder.
Sparkles on the background - Dusty Rose Glitter.
