July's inspiration by Pascale

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Blue Fern Studios blog with three new projects. The first two features the Timeless collection.

I take th photo of the Astrance in the garden of the castle of Chaumont-sur-Loire (Loire Valley, France)

First I primed the Song paper from the Timeless collection with clear gesso. Then I added a design with a stencil and 3D Gloss Gel.

When dry, I added some color in green and burgundy to match the photo. I splattered a mix of Merlot glitter, gel medium and water as well as white gesso. I added also a design with the Postal stamp and the Ginger embossing powder.

I primed the Wild Flourish Bundle with white gesso before coloring it with watercolor. I sprinkled the leaves with Verdant and Lime embossing powders to add some texture.

I primed the Persian Ornement with clear gesso and covered it with a clear crackle paste. When dry, I used two mica powders to color it.

To finish, I added some random stamping with the Halftone stamp.

I also use the Timeless collection for the second layout but as you can see the result is really different. I take this photo during an street event we have recently near the place I live. This clown is called Lullaby and the show was so entertaining.

I cut in the Freedom and Main Street papers from the Timeless collection some squares that I glued on the background with a soft gel. When dry I covered everything with clear gesso.

Then I added a design with a stencil and a white crackle paste. I let dry naturally before coloring the background in various shades of brown and green.

I primed all the chipboards with clear gesso The title Glee was just paint in green. The Chelsea Vines were painted in brown, then sprinkled with two shades of green embossing powder.

I covered the Mod Squares with the Rust Effect Paste and splattered them with the same green watercolor I used on the background and the title.

Before gluing all the elements, I stamped randomly the background with the Making Plans stamp.

Here is my third project:  I chose a photo of the Duncaire Castle situated on the shore of Galway Bay (Kinvara, co. Galway, Ireland) and the new collection Seaside Cottage was just the perfect choice.

I started to prime the background with clear gesso before adding a design with a stencil and 3D gloss gel. When dry, I added a second design with another stencil and white crackle paste.

I primed the chipboards with clear gesso. I painted the title Magique from the French Adjectives 2 set with a silver watercolor as well as the Seaside Flourish. While the watercolor was still wet I sprinkled some Icicle embossing powder.

I colored the background with different shades of blue and green. Then I mixed some Silver Prism glitters with water and gel medium and splattered the mix on the background to remind the reflections in the water. I repeated the process with the Blue Ice glitters. 

After having glued all the embellishments, I added some stones to remind the ones in the photo.
